We have been coming to Castelli's since I was a little girl. They are know for their chicken. But their steaks and Italian meals are delicious too. My favorite salad is their Roman salad. The staff and service is great. It is a very relaxing...More

Castelli's will always be Moonlight to me. I can remember having take-out fried chicken feasts as a kid, Nostalgia probably gave the restaurant an extra star, but I'm a big fan. The salads are great as well. The bread crumbs instead of croutons make it...More
