Good solid old-fashioned Italian food popular with families

Is it pleasant? Yes. Are the portions plentiful? Yes. This chain is popular with several generations of Boston-area residents who grew up and like the generic red sauce with varied pasta type servings. There have been a few updates in recent years, but you basically get 1950s red sauce pasta here... read more

Having grown up in Waltham, this is our go-to place to eat when back in town for any reason. Veal Parmesan and toasted ravioli are our favorites - but there's something for everyone. The bread is fabulous! Mangia!

The lunches are delicious. The bread is so fresh and light. The staff is so friendly and upbeat. The Italian sauce is tasty and always fresh.

The chateau is a go-to restaurant for many families in the area. They serve all kinds of food and is definitely kid friendly. I especially like the chicken supreme. You get delicious bread while waiting for your food and their creamy Italian dressing is great on the salads. I recommend this restaurant if you want good food and everyone in... More

I have been here a few times and this place is fairly reasonable and makes for a nice night out. I normally have the chicken parm which is decent and plenty of food for dinner and a snack later.

I grew up in Waltham and have gone to the restaurant since I was a kid. My favorite foods are the toasted ravioli's, pepperoni pizza, garden salads with house dressing and the bread. The bread is to kill for, so soft. You can eat a loaf by yourself waiting for your food. But don't fill up on the bread because... More

Today my husband and I met some friends for lunch at the Chateau Restaurant in Waltham. There is a great variety of choices on both the lunch and dinner menus. All four of us had something different, and we all enjoyed our meals. The Italian bread that is served with all the meals is always fresh and tasty. There are... More

I grew up in Waltham but live in Oklahoma now. Whenever I visit, you can be sure at least one meal will be at the Chateau. Their Italian food is wonderful especially the bread. But don't discount their seafood. The fried clam platter is the best in the area. You should not leave hungry!!
