“First Class Food Good Menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

A slightly more formal atmosphere in this restaurant but without being stuffy or pretentious. Friendly and helpful staff and a good selection of food on the menu. The quality of the food served was excellent, we had 3 courses and all were cooked to perfection and well presented. Considering the quality of the food the cost was nothing like we would have paid in the UK. I would recommend this restaurant as one not to miss.

“Charming cafe on Main Street in Chatham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Comfy, cozy, and very continental. Innovative menu, fresh, delicious and prepared to order. Love the seafood crepes. They had a beautiful halibut dish one night we were there. Daughter had the steak and was well pleased. Celestinos does everything well. Great place to sit and enjoy conversation, excellent cocktails, and fantastic food. We go often, it is a neighborhood gem as well as a bustling restaurant in season. So good to see a menu on the Cape which isn't jam packed with either pasta or fried fish.

“Better than other restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

We ate here today and were very surprised. The food was wonderful and very well cooked and displayed. We ate yesterday in Pisces and were very disappointed.
You have to eat here! We loved it

“Awesome food, superb service, a real treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

My first time at Celestino's Cafe and it was fantastic. I started with the salad a la maison, and then had the halibut almondine cooked perfectly, with asparagus and a rich tasting and creamy risotto; also had some french bread with olive oil to dip into-everything was superb. For dessert I had the chocolate hazelnut torte with chocolate ganache and a cup of espresso. Not only was the food awesome, my server was extremely charming and helpful. I'd recommend Celestino's to anyone looking for a great meal. Great job Celestino's!

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

We have eaten at Celestino's on 3 separate occasions this summer and have never been disappointed. The food is great...fresh, flavorful and beautifully presented. The lobster dishes are quite good, but my daughters favorite is the chicken marsala. The salted caramel gelato for dessert is absolutely fantastic. Great wine list and friendly service. they take reservation, which is a bonus since another popular restaurant in town does not and that is annoying! Fine dining Chatham style...I suggest giving it a try. Recommend the mixed grill, Lobster a la Celestino or the chicken marsala. I've also had the cod bella vista which is a very simple, light dish. Really good food.
