Due to COVID-19 - haven't been here in quite some time. Service was a little slow, but understandable as due to staffing challenges with the virus, there were only 2 servers - and was still very, very good. Food was excellent.

A pleasant surprise. One of the best Caesar salads ever ordered and entrees were excellent. Staff was professional. Has to be one of the best restaurants in Danbury.

It was a busy Saturday night so that may explain the longer than usual wait time for our cocktails and later dinner. As usual, food was good and a great value.

Ambiance + music was nice enough. Wait service was excellent and knowledgable, though the bill was not delivered until I asked even though we were already asked if we wanted anything else for the night, which we responded no we're all set and waited nearly another 20 minutes sipping our constantly refilled waters. Food was just okay, cold bread and cold butter not a great combo, but the bread was tasty, fried calimari was typical seemed like a small portion compared to any other Italian restaurant I've been to, bland chicken francaise and what tasted like a long frozen NY strip was not worth the $100 tab. Desserts were better, yummy ricotta cheese cake and typical tiramisu, though my guess is the desserts are made elsewhere. Not a bad experience, but not a good one either. No plan to return a second time, though if I did I'd try a pasta dish and get that cheese cake again. I'm not wine aficionado, so no comment on wine selection, except that the wine menu seemed small if someone was looking for a place to explore different wines.

The service was excellent and most of the food was good. The chicken cutlets I had as party of my main course were so tough that i was difficult to cut them and near impossible to chew.

I asked to substitute oysters instead of clams casino....no problem...and Delicious. Sea bass lightly prepared, pan seared and deboned table side...a nice touch. My wife had chicken Francaise ..light n moist.
Service was attentive and congenial

There was four of us and we had a 6 pm Saturday night reservations. We were seated right away. We ordered salad, soup and our meal. The meals came and we never saw our waiter again. Never asked how our meals were or if we needed anything. We wanted dessert but at 7:30 no one came around to ask us of we wanted coffee or dessert. I had to flag someone down to get our bill. We had a play to catch so you would think we would have had time to eat and have dessert in a hour and a half. I actually left hungry. The chicken francese was bland and my broccoli was not cooked. Maybe it was an off night?

It was a quiet dinner. The service was excellent. The food was outstanding. The bartender made a great Manhattan and the wines were top drawer but not expensive. This is a great place to do if you are looking for a quiet and leisurely dinner.

I would recommend Castello. It was my first time dining there and was very impressed with food, service. Friends of ours were with us and have frequented the restaurant many times. I think it will become a regular for us as well.

Have lived in Danbury for years but have never tried Castello. After reading all of the positive reviews, we took a chance and finally tried it. We have to say we were very pleasantly surprised. Service was wonderful and the food was great. We will definitely be back.

Food was ok... but for the price I would have expected better. The meatballs tasted like Cosco frozen ... portions were small and the food tasted ok otherwise. Overall not a bad place but not at all what I expected. Costello is an average restaurant with average quality food.
