Inconsistent pizza base, in my opinion, they were not freshly made. Toppings sparse not a positive experience this time.

Having found our original lunch venue full we came across El Castello and decided to try it. No issue with getting a table, even on a Sunday lunch time, in the clean bright restaurant. The menu is modern Italian with a good selection of pasta, meat, fish and pizza. The pasta dishes were well prepared and presented, and they have... More

Been in often, always solidly a good Italian place to eat, food is always tasty and fresh. The specials board always has great tasty options. Food is always seasonal too. The staff are really friendly and funny. Happy to help and never impatient. Only thing I would say is- please change your menu as it's been same for while now.... More

We have eaten here several times and always had excellent meals. As this is relatively local, it tends to be a favourite place to eat. We usually pick a quieter time of the day or less busy night of the week/weekend as it can be rather noisy. Staff always friendly and helpful (and happy).

Came here for tea one evening I had two starters which were the calamari and the halloumi and my friend had the spinach & rocotta ravioli with butternut squash. Both meals were served in good time and the ravioli was really nice! The calamari was also very nice however the halloumi wasn't that special it was very rubbery and chewy... More

With so many chain restaurants offering "Italian" food it's nice to come across a proper one now and again. There is an extensive menu with all the usual dishes and the quality is excellent as was the service, being able to sit outside on warmer evenings is a nice option to. There is a very relaxed atmosphere even when the... More
