Food was great! Service was slow! Friendly wait staff. Standing room only and very small. Would recommend making reservations. They have a kids menu but more adult friendly

great food - love that you can make a reservation; great take-out as well. Have eaten there 4 times....always lean towards the night special. Never disappointed.

My husband and I went here on a Saturday night, around 6:15pm. We heard it was a small place, so we made reservations. Glad we did, because it filled up quickly!! My husband had the Squid Ink Lobster and Scallops special, and I had a chicken dish with prosciutto and spinach in a white wine sauce. Both of us enjoyed our meals, and decided we would come back again if we were in the mood for Italian food.

Pros: Large menu with lots of selections, portion sizes were huge, and they have gluten free pasta and a few sauce selections for those with food allergies. Also, they take reservations, which many places around here don’t.

Cons: Can get quite loud, as it is a small place with a good amount of tables in it.

Suggestions to management for improvement:

1) Have an actual gluten free options menu (even just a word document on the computer, printed on card stock) or inform the wait staff which items have flour in them. The poor waitress had to keep going back and forth to check with the kitchen.

2) Get table cloths for the tables to make the place look more upscale and match the food. Castucci’s is a great restaurant, but with the price level that the food is listed at ($$) tablecloths seem appropriate/ necessary.

We will be back!! Thanks for the delicious meal!!!

We are a family of 6 including an infant. We showed up at 6pm knowing we would need to sit on the patio in order to not have to wait. However, they were super accomadating and went above and beyond. As soon as they were able they sat us inside with our messy toddler and nursing infant no problem. Not to mention the food is fantastic. We visit Southport at least once a year and this restaurant will definitely be an annual visit as well.

This was the 2nd time I have eaten there. The food is excellent- just like you get in the better Italian places in NJ or NY. The portion are very large, the quality is excellent and the presentation is appealing to the eye.
The fried calamari was the best I have had- not greasy or rubbery and a huge portion.
Prices are reasonable especially if you consider that most dishes will suffice for 2 meals.
Downside- no reservations are taken, the place can get very loud when full.
