2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were seated upstairs as we were a group of over 20 on a very hot evening, there is no air conditioning as it is an old building which is understandable but nothing to stop them having a few fans up there! We were seated over an hour before the starters arrived ( all our requirements had been pre ordered).... More

We popped in for tea we had a window seat which was nice. The service was ok, the food was average. There is seating outside and the restaurant has upstairs room too. It was ok but I wont be rushing back in a hurry.

We stumbled upon this charming little place during an impromptu visit to Windsor yesterday. For once the weather was good, so we took advantage, sat outside and ordered a bottle of Malbec Rose - perfect! I chose to start with the mussels, whilst my wife opted for the bruschetta. Both were tasty and generous. We then both selected the tagliatelle... More

Given the touristy nature of Windsor it is lovely to find an Italian so close to the castle that isn't charging rip off prices and isn't a chain restaurant either. The smoked haddock starter dish is a real treat. Mains are standard Italian fare and had no complaints regarding the quality. Service was friendly and prompt although it wasn't hugely... More

Visited here on a recent visit - was not blown away and really should have gone elsewhere. The only reason I went was it was across the road from my hotel and the TripAdvisor reviews were pretty positive. It's not real Italian - e.g. Deep Fried brie; the carbonara has cream added to it - that's always a good indicator... More

Very old and rundown place. It all looks rustic but sitting there was really uncomfortable. Our table was so small two people could not sit comfortably. Bathrooms are not the cleanest either. The food was average at best. My calamari were tasteless not even a wedge of lime but plenty of onion, why I do not understand! Again the pizza... More

We are sorry to learn that you were disappointed with your visit to Castello. Our building dates back to 1423, - 593 years old, so you are correct when you say that it is old. We find most of our customers like the fact that the building is unique, being one of the oldest in Windsor. Being a Grade 1... More

Authentic, delicious, well priced, wonderful service and very accommodating. Arrived as the kitchen as closing but it was not a problem at all. The staff was terrific but above all the food was really good.

We ate at Castello's on our first night of a two week trip to the UK. This was one of my favorite meals. My husband has carbonara and I had pasta with prawns. We both liked our meals - mine was delicious.

We stopped at Castello because on a busy weekend afternoon it was one of the few places that had ample seating. Very pleasant surprise. Food was excellent and variety of choices was exceptional. Good timely service even thought there was a large crowd. A little hard to find, but well worth the effort.
