We ate here today and were very surprised. The food was wonderful and very well cooked and displayed. We ate yesterday in Pisces and were very disappointed.
You have to eat here! We loved it

“Awesome food, superb service, a real treat!”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

My first time at Celestino's Cafe and it was fantastic. I started with the salad a la maison, and then had the halibut almondine cooked perfectly, with asparagus and a rich tasting and creamy risotto; also had some french bread with olive oil to dip into-everything was superb. For dessert I had the chocolate hazelnut torte with chocolate ganache and a cup of espresso. Not only was the food awesome, my server was extremely charming and helpful. I'd recommend Celestino's to anyone looking for a great meal. Great job Celestino's!

“Great food”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

We have eaten at Celestino's on 3 separate occasions this summer and have never been disappointed. The food is great...fresh, flavorful and beautifully presented. The lobster dishes are quite good, but my daughters favorite is the chicken marsala. The salted caramel gelato for dessert is absolutely fantastic. Great wine list and friendly service. they take reservation, which is a bonus since another popular restaurant in town does not and that is annoying! Fine dining Chatham style...I suggest giving it a try. Recommend the mixed grill, Lobster a la Celestino or the chicken marsala. I've also had the cod bella vista which is a very simple, light dish. Really good food.

“A must for breakfast”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Think of the best French toast you've ever had in your life. Then try to imagine something even better and you might have an idea what Celestino's is like. Beautiful dining area and an excellent breakfast menu with generous portions and fresh ingredients make this a very welcome change from the bakery-with-seating that most coffee shops in Chatham offer.

“Worth the wait”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Had breakfast at Celestino's a few times. The chocolate creeps are amazing as is the French omelet with potatoes. Service is slow as everything cooked to order, but it is worth the wait. It is alittle pricier than other breakfast places in the area.
