We eat here any time we are close to the Alton area (we can usually find an excuse to come to this area). We love the fried chicken and house salad. We have travelled all over the country and no fried chicken compares.

We visited Castelli's - the locals will always know it as Moonlight - and the meat tortellini was wonderful. The white cheese sauce was hot, rich and thick, the pasta tender and the whole dish seasoned just right. The service was very good - bread...More
