Great take out for a company event

Very popular restaurant in the Waltham area. First time to try this delicious food. It was a take out food for a company event. I tried few dishes and all of them were excellent. Definitely will recommend or go there if in the area.

This place is great for delicious Italian food and family gatherings. They have great service and can accommodate large groups. We went early as it gets very busy - it was around noon - as it wasn't my first time here, I was torn about what to order. I've had the lasagna, meatballs, chicken parm, and the seafood casserole here... More

A great place for a large group of people. There were eleven of us and we were accommodated easily. Tables were pushed together for us all to be seated together. The luncheon specials were varied and quite delicious. We will definitely return. Even bought some bread on the way out.

I have been here several times when I visit the East Coast. The atmosphere reminds me of going back in time. It's a very large restaurant and seems to be able to serve many. The food is always good (at least what I have ordered: Lasagna or rigatoni). Portions are large so you can take some home for leftovers or... More

First let me state explicitly that I am a 3rd generation customer of the Chateau and have been eating here for at least 50 years, and have happily watched this establishment grow and expand over the years. When I was young there was always a line extending around the block to get in, this place was always mobbed, and with... More

Wow, this was like stepping in the way back machine. Huge restaurant with big parking lot (a plus in Waltham) serving large portions of old school Italian/American fare. Pasta, burgers, pizza and the like can be found on this menu. Prices reasonable, portions huge, service friendly and with a smile. The food was average, but the whole package with friendly... More

No foodie pretensions. No ostentatious showing off for critical acclaim. No inflated egos in the kitchen. Just traditional restaurant dishes expertly prepared, moderately priced, graciously served in a comfortable, relaxed setting. Italian emphasis in the menu but not exclusively: I had prime rib (perfectly cooked medium rare), my wife had shrimp scampi, we shared an appetizer of stuffed mushrooms. Here... More

Everyone in our group of 8 chose a different dish, all we were all pleased with our choice. The food tasted good and there was plenty. However, for an afternoon services was very slow and the the dining area very noisy. I wonder, how it is when all tables are taken.
