This popular Alton dining spot offers good food at reasonable prices from an extensive menu. Six different meals were ordered from our table of eight and all but one was up to expectations. The restaurant, large but divided into smaller seating areas, is well furnished, clean and provides good service. Prices range is on the lower end. In business since... More

This is the first time I've had lunch here for business in 10 years. The chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes were excellent. We use them for takeout around holidays all of the time. The staff was very polite and attentive to detail. We will definitely be back to dine in.

I have been going to Castelli's since it was originally Moonlight. Most of us still call it that. Either way, they have yet to disappoint. The chicken is absolutely wonderful. You cannot find this good of fried chicken so close to home. The batter leaves these deliciously flavorable little "crunchies" as we call them. I also really enjoy the chicken... More

Castelli's (Also called Moonlight) has the best fried chicken around. Their Italian food is also great. But I should be saying "All their food is great. The house salad dressing is outstanding. The service is fast and friendly. Ever one needs to good here and try it for themselves.

Simple good food. Chicken is very good and the house salad dressing is very good. Lunch specials, with something for everyone. We had the baked pasta. This place is very clean and the people working there were very nice. Known for their fried chicken.

Went with a group of ladies. Comfortable seating, roomy. I had homemade ravioli and salad with homemade Roman (Caesar) dressing. It was average.

I reviewed this place a couple years ago. We've been back a time or two since then, but it's never really somewhere we're eager to get back to. Every time we do, the main reason is the house salad. Their house dressing is phenomenal. Other than that, about the only thing I like here is chicken. I'll admit that in... More

I always take friends and family here when they come to visit (been here many times over the 10 years I've lived in the area) They are famous for their fried chicken (huge portions), Italian dishes (multiple types of sauces) and steaks. Everything is home made. The best cream of broccoli soup I've ever had (most places only have broccoli/cheese... More
