Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What an amazing find. A fabulous restaurant with amazing food and friendly staff. Good Gluten Free options too. We went there for dinner one evening and loved it so much we went back the next evening. All the food is very fresh, and I had...the best Sea Bass I've ever had. Thanks for looking after us so well.More

A local for us and have visited many times. Last couple of times, food has been under par. Tonight my husband had a vegetable risotto but it was so salty he couldn’t eat it.we all tasted it and agreed. Another couple had a side of...Greek salad so he had a little of that on the side as he wasn’t eating the risotto. When asked if everything was ok he explained and they offered to make a new one but (as often happens in a group) everyone else was way into their meals so he declined. The waiter returned to say that the ‘salty’ feta (from the salad) had created the over salty flavour! We were charged the full price for an uneaten risotto and when queried, no apology just rudeness stating it was my husband’s own fault. Extremely poor customer service. Will not return.More

It was an okay experience. We were disappointed with the choice of menu for an italian restaurant. Garlic breads were good but the quality of pizzas including toppings, presentation and consistency (ordered 2 pizzas the same but looked different and consistency of cooking different). Not...like the pictures online. We were so looking forward to it but sadly they were bland in tasting with no fresh herbs. However, the restaurant itself had a very nice decor and the staff were attentive but it was very busy and loud. The last time we visited this restaurant was a long time ago and had good memories. Clearly popular but just not for us.More

What can I say? Castello,you are amazing My family organised a surprise 60th Birthday lunch. From the moment I walked in,the service was faultless. 17 adults and 5 children including a 2 month old baby and no pre orders required!!!!! You were so accommodating and...happy to join in the celebrations and take photos. The food was very very tasty and piping hot. Your chef deserves a medal getting 21 meals cooked to perfection and all served at the same time. Simply the best. Thank you to you all.More

This is one of the best Italian restaurants outside of Italy. Outstanding food, great service. If it had a car park, I'd give it 6 stars.

Another great meal at Castellos. We were reflecting during our meal on how we've been here over 10 times over the years as this is our local restaurant and we've never had a bad meal. Tonight we enjoyed prawns and calamari to start, pasta pomadora...and Tropicana pizza. All was served promptly and excellent service as we were on a tight schedule. Very reasonably priced and as always, the facilities were immaculately clean. We will of course be back.More

Service was great especially as the restaurant was very busy. The staff were attentive and helpful however with regards to my steak I was not impressed at all. Two of us ordered the Sirloin steak which wasn't cheap so I was expecting a nice tender...steak but mine had a serious amount of gristle which was obviously left on my plate and even the waiter noticed this and asked if everything was ok which obviously I said not really, also although the steak was tasty it was pretty chewy again not something you expect from a 30 day aged steak. It comes with fries which were very nice but no salad just an inch square dollop of cress of some kind, surely a small salad wouldn’t go a miss with the price of this meal? Wish I had taken a photo of this meal so show that this review is a fair comment and not exaggerated. Can’t fault the staff and it was only my meal that was very disappointing .More

Family had a fantastic meal here last night. The food as always was very good. The service was also very good. We had the specials scallops with risotto and I was very pleased to see that the scallops had the roe attached. So often scallops...are served without the roe. Then two of had a pollo funghi really good, othered had the salmon and the Castello pizza. My grandson’s meal of spaghetti pomodoro came with our starters and the restaurant were happy to substitute spaghetti for penne. Only 2 of our party had room for dessert chocolate soufflé and a child’s portion of strawberry ice cream. Would highly recommend. But I would book ahead as the restaurant was very busy even at 5:30 and by the time we left the restaurant was full. So good to see at this time.More

This Italian gem in our most favourite place to eat. We come here at least once a month, and always bring visitors here as well as choosing it as our place for any celebration. Our most recent visit was for an early Mothers Day celebration,...and it did not disappoint. The food is always fantastic, with excellent choice and delicious specials available. The service is second to none. Nothing is ever too much and we are always made to feel welcome and special. Our daughter in particular loves it here. Her first visit was at 7 days old and now she is nearly 7 years old! A wonderful family restaurant that has so much to offer. Absolutely recommend on every level!More

Lovely lunch with the family on a Sunday. Really friendly welcome and the service was excellent throughout the meal. Great that kids can order a smaller portion of any pizza or pasta from the main menu for £7.95. I had a main off the specials...board which was delicious, would’ve been even better if it came with some veg. Cocktails are reasonably priced. Cheesecake for dessert was amazing! The only downside is that the only option for kids dessert is one scoop of ice cream for £2.85. We will definitely be returning.More

Our first visit and it won’t be the last. A typical Italian restaurant menu, all the classic dishes, but most importantly superb quality and with friendly, efficient service and a great atmosphere. I had calamari, the special lamb shank and a fabulous cheesecake and my...friends all had different dishes, everyone was extremely happy with their meals. Clearly very fresh ingredients, beautifully cooked, very tasty and so I can’t wait to go back again soon!More
