Castelli still delivers really good italian food. The pasta I had there was really good by international standards. The icecream dessert was not value for money though. The atmosphere was really pleasant but the prices are not!!! Since it still is a very popular place you'd better make reservations!

For Addis prices this restaurant works out expensive. It's worth getting dishes to share if you're in a group since we found the food a bit hit-and-miss. Dishes that were good included the Tagliatelle Tartufo, the parma ham and the pistachio ice cream. Although the service was better than what I expected after reading reviews here, I prefer the slightly cheaper venues of Aba Guben and Avanti which have a bit more atmosphere.

The place is devoid of atmosphere, and the restaurant offers very poor and expensive imitation of Italian food. This is a good reason to prefer Ethiopian food when you are in Ethiopia.

The Italian menu is excellent and Italian wines are available.
The restaurant is very old for Addis; I went there in the 1960ies. It is now renovated and has a lot of atmosphere.
On the negative side is the price, and the slightly artifical atmosphere with (when I was there) only foreign patrons.

The restaurant is extremely good and authentic. The food is very good and makes one feel very well after having eaten a lot, which says a lot about the quality of ingredients used. The restaurant has an old world charm and is a simple place. A bit costly by standards of Addis Ababa but worth it. The Tagliatelle Tartufo is extremely good and highly recommended and the mushroom ravioli are excellent. A visit to thios place is a must for the lovers of Italian food.
