Arrived at 6.30. Having been seated and ordered we were asked to change our seating so they could take a table out for another booking. What was comfortable seating became squashed. First fail. The starters arrived reasonably quickly but then we sat and sat and sat for the next hour waiting for mains. Staff seemed stressed and certainly didn't deal... More

We had an average dinner at il Castello - the pizza dough was not very crispy. The vitello tonato had a LOT of tuna sauce, so it was hard to taste the veal. The pasta with seafood was quite blend, and in general I found the food too salty.

really friendly people, great pizza chief baker, nice wine list, a lot of really nice dishes. What I also like is the Tuscan atmosphere, the rustic holiday-ish furniture and everything. Makes me feel like I'm on holiday

A family group comes here every year on December 26th. A mix of adults, teenagers and young children. The food is great, no matter what you order, the portions come adult sized, so you might need to ask for smaller if you have small children, and the service is fairly quick for such a busy time period. The staff are... More

No sparkle in our soda, Small portions in fresh pasta, But really tasteful. we ordered a pizza because we were still hungry after our fresh pasta. The white wine gave us a headache. I prefer dining with the neighbours, DA PECO, sorry,... More

This restaurant is centrally located so easily accessible and the interior is lovely. There is a pizza oven in the centre of the restaurant so you can see the chef making and cooking the pizzas. I was less impressed with the food and service, although my husband loved his sea bass stuffed ravioli with a prawn sauce, I found my... More

Ristorante Il Castello has a cosy candlelit ambience. The extensive menu contains all aspects of classic Italian cuisine covering the usual soups and starters, fresh pasta, risotto, pizzas, salads and other meat and fish dishes. I chose well: "Penne dello chef" was a large portion of tasty pasta with a well flavoured rocket and gorgonzola pesto. The fresh "Insalata Mista"... More

I went there with a group of people from my husband's work. There were about 8 of us, most ordered different things, but mostly pasta & pizza. No complaints, everyone loved their food. Nice atmosphere, and would be great for families (there were a LOT when we first arrived, probably because Sinterklaus was there, but were gone by around 1930),... More
