“Excellent value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Really enjoyed our evening out here. The menu has plenty of choice so didn't know what to have. Recommend the spicy prawns and the smoked haddock to start, good sized portions. The mains and puds were excellent too. The atmosphere is very relaxing. The staff didn't rush you and let you take it at your own pace. Will be visiting again soon.

“Good food & nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

A lovely find right in the heart of this pretty village.

Very good food and a nice atmosphere in this upmarket restaurant. Had to send the wine back as it was warm and hadn't been chilled, (wondered why the cooler had ice cubs in it!), other than that it was a good meal.

Very popular with locals so booking essential at weekends. Very friendly helpful owners.

Note: Parking on a Sat very difficult with no parking outside (yellow lines) and the square chock a block with cars so the best place to park is in a public car park as you turn into the road leading down to the restaurant.

“Lots of staff but slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

Had lunch there today. Food was good and staff friendly.

Only had pizzas and pasta dishes but everyone enjoyed their food.

Table service was a little slow especially as it was fairly quiet. We will go back again but they need to check on tables a little more often to check on drink situation.

As we are locals we would really like this restaurant to do well but the atmosphere is lacking. I'm not sure what is missing but for a Sunday lunch on Father's Day It was surprisingly quiet.

Maybe background music?

Dear PrinceEdward73, Thank you for writing your first review about Castello. It is good to know that you enjoyed the food and I am sorry to hear that the table service was a little slow and staff weren't quick enough to ask if you wanted more to drink. As you may have realised, it is a family run restaurant, but 4 members of my family were away on holiday for Father's Day, with only member present - so it may have lacked its usual buzzy atmosphere. We always have music on in the background, but maybe on this occasion it wasn't loud enough. We do tend to play it slightly lower on a Sunday as the age range of our customers is very mixed. As you are aware, it is a large restaurant - we served more than 70 customers over lunch - but this was over a period of 5 hours.
We hope to see you again soon.

“Shepperton tranquility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

What an excellent find! My meal was freshly prepared and the subtle flavours of the ingredients were a joy on the palate. This family-run business has pleasant surroundings with attentive staff. Parking in Old Shepperton is atrocious, but do not let this put you off eating at this lovely restaurant. Specials menu is all you need for a perfect meal!
