I was visiting with client's in Morgan City and asked them to lunch. I asked them to go to a good local non-chain restaurant so they took me here. First of all, this place is a dive, very little decor, meals are served on styrofoam plates. Don't be fooled. This is some of the best Italian food this side of Rome!!! The sauce is handmade and delicious. The portions are generous. Try the eggplant fries!!!!

Castalano's is a Neighborhood gem! You will notice that most of the people in there are locals or from the neighborhood. Salads are great, Try the special of the day, they are always outstanding.

Well to start the restaurant is small with people standing around the counter waiting to order, and sitting at tables for take out. I had the lunch a stuffed chicken with shrimp stuffing.The chicken was dry and the stuffing had one shrimp, that was not stuff but just looked like it was just thrown on there ,the stuffing taste like jiffy corn bread mix really to sweet for a stuffing. I waited for 47 minutes for lunch which should have been a little quicker especially at lunch time. I will find other restaurants in the area and avoid this one.

Located on a side street, I only came upon this place because a local friend brought me there. We stopped in for lunch. It's a mom and pop place that treats you like you're family. The food is typical cafeteria type Italian food, but good, friendly service put Castalano's near the top of my list of favorite lunch places in Morgan City.
