The husband and I go here every chance we get. Even though it's a 2 hour drive. We were just remarking we've been coming here for over a decade and we've never ever had a bad experience or bad food. That is saying a lot because we are picky eaters. They have A large crowd on weekends so plan ahead.

We checked out Castelli's after seeing the reviews on Tripadvisor - and we were not disappointed! We were there on a Saturday night right at meal time, and they were busy but the wait was only about 10 minutes. We had a drink at the small bar first and did not get the first drink finished. All of the staff... More

This a great family restaurant with a full menu. Everyone in your family should be able to find something to eat here. Their house dressing is excellent and the toasted raviolis are homemade. My favorite restaurant to go to for my birthday.

Good service, great food! Ribeye was one of the best we've ever eaten and the fried chicken was great, too. Prices were reasonable for the quality of food. We'll be back.

This is an outstanding restaurant. They are known for their fried chicken (rightfully so) and famous creamy garlic salad dressing (house). Fast service and very large to accommodate the crowds.

If I am hungry for fried chicken, Castelli's is the place I choose to go. The atmosphere is friendly and comfortable. The service is very good and the menu choices (beyond the fried chicken) are extensive. My wife and I are there at least once a month.

I have been dining at this place for many many years. They have been serving some of the best chicken and best atmosphere for a great family sit down dinner. If someone was visiting from out of town this would be where I would take them and not worry about anything going wrong. Love the food and if you ever... More

We love this family owned restaurant. They have the best house salad and fried chicken around. Everything on the menu is wonderful and plenty to chose from for everyone.
