I have been going to La Castalana for over 20 years and go back every time I come home. Even fancy expensive NYC restaurants don't come close to their pasta sauce. The antipasto is delicious too. The servers we have had all these years have generally been nice. A couple even remember us whenever we come in which isn't often... More

The owner is as horrible as they come...she tries to take your change or not give you the proper amount. If you leave a tip for the waitress at the front when you pay, the owner pockets it! She was loudly talking about my family and I in front of the restuarant when confronted about the money and she said... More

I live within walking distance of this place, and in the summer, with my bedroom window open, I can smell the garlic and sauce cooking at 8:30 on Saturday mornings!!! Not crazy about the meatballs, however, or the pizza, but I love the sauce and we always get the lasagna. When we order it to go, it always comes with... More

If you are Sicilian you will love the sauce, just like home. If you aren't, you will love the sauce. I have to agree with the other reviewers that sometimes service is inconsistant, but so what...I've never waitressed and don't care to. It can't be easy. I wish they would put more items in the salad, but an Italian restaurant... More

By far the best Italian in the area! I have two kids and when we left, the owner came over to us and gave my kids both gifts! It was VERY nice:)

Sauce is to die for, literally the best you will ever have, all pastas are great, eggplant parm is my favorite. However I always take out rather than eating in. My girlfriend and I have eaten there several times and the service has been terrible- cranky waitresses, waiting forever for someone to take your order. Once we waited at the... More
