If you want delicious Italian food, steak sandwiches stuffed with meat to overflowing, friendly service and excellent prices, Costello's in Historic Smithville, N.J. is the place for you. We were really surprised by the amount of food we got. We ordered steak sandwiches, fries and a side of shrimp pasta with a cream sauce to share between the five of... More

Always see a full parking lot so decided to try Costello's. Menu was fine but the service and the quality were lacking.. Maybe it was just an off day. Will give them a second try, I'm sure..

This may be a bit out of the way and tucked in along the highway but this restaurant serves some of the finest Italian homemade food.

After a day of sightseeing we decided to try Costello's for takeout. It was literally a few steps away from our room at the Smithville Inn. Our order consisted of 3 items: 1 Caesar salad, 1 Eggplant Parm sandwich and ! order of Pasta Fagiole. It practically took 2 of us to carry the order back to our room! The... More

My wife and I stopped in for a quick dinner on a Thursday evening, Only 1 other customer was in the restaurant section. The pizza steak I ordered was only OK, nothing special. A few nights later, we ordered a Sicilian pizza from the take-out section. The pizza was bland and the crust was bready and overcooked. The sausage on... More

Not as crowded as the family restaurant next door, but it can get tight if everybody is eating in. I couldn't move chair in or out with someone sitting in back of me. Single-stall bathroom for both genders and no changing table. Buffalo chicken sub was good but too much sauce meant it was running down side of sandwich. Other... More

My husband performs in the renaissance faire that is held in Old Historic Smithville each year so Coltello's is a quick and easy place to get a bite. No real complaint except for the fact that while visiting on May 1st the kid behind the counter made it feel like you were being a bother when you were deciding what... More

Great food, Started with a fresh delicious salad with Ceasar dressing. Ordered hot wings that were very good. Never take anything home but took some of the Chicken Parm home as the portion was enormous and very tasty, Very pleasant surprise...

I've been waiting to try this place for a couple years now, in particular the Buffalo Tails. Maybe I caught them on an off day because I was pretty underwhelmed. They have two entrances,one for takeout and one for sit-down so it is actually two separate rooms. We went for table service since I had a group and didn't want... More
