Castalanos

Outstanding Italian food. Also has prepared & frozen ready to cook foods to take home for later meals. Limited seating & very limited parking. Excellent lunches as long as they last.

The "Original" Castalanos is one of our most favorite family-owned local restaurants in Morgan City, LA. It serves excellent Italian food from an extensive menu. You can review the daily menu at the service-order counter on the back board or by menu, with prices posted, and the staff is gracious to walk you through the menu. Once ordered, you take... More

Castalano's has some of the best restaurant food in Morgan City. They have an extensive menu and the food is always delicious! They have some of the best lasagna, chicken parmesan and eggplant parmesan around. I would put their food up against any of the Italian restaurants in New Orleans. The biggest problem you have when you eat at Castalano's... More

Stopped in for lunch. First visit. Out of the way. But the Italian food is for real. Spaghetti al dente, sauce superb, meatball tender and juicy, Italian sausage definitely homemade and taste. Well worth another visit next time I pass through town.

I was visiting with client's in Morgan City and asked them to lunch. I asked them to go to a good local non-chain restaurant so they took me here. First of all, this place is a dive, very little decor, meals are served on styrofoam plates. Don't be fooled. This is some of the best Italian food this side of... More

Castalano's is a Neighborhood gem! You will notice that most of the people in there are locals or from the neighborhood. Salads are great, Try the special of the day, they are always outstanding.

Located on a side street, I only came upon this place because a local friend brought me there. We stopped in for lunch. It's a mom and pop place that treats you like you're family. The food is typical cafeteria type Italian food, but good, friendly service put Castalano's near the top of my list of favorite lunch places in... More
