Dragged here reluctantly last night by Charity ( my daughter) ..I was tired, wanted to go home, moan moan, after visiting my other half, finishing work. Recanted my usual tosh about pizza being like glorified cheese on toast and home made macaroni cheese is my choice of pasta.
cutting it short I had a wonderful evening, the steak dish with cream, brandy and herbs was great, the squid,whitebait,prawn starter was lipsmacking good ( I think I pinched that from an advert!) the cheesecake out of this world.
It would be a great place to take children, babies too, the eating area was large, high chairs were supplied for small babes. One lucky little girl had a birthday there and her face when the waiters arrived with a birthday cake, complete with candles was a picture, the waiters and diners all sang happy birthday.
All of the waiters were smiley happy and professional, and did not regard the children as some sort of alien species to be shoved in a corner out of the way.
It felt like being on holiday! So if you have a family event and have youngsters take them there....
Went again on Wednesday, daughter had a sicilian pizza I even tried at bit and had to admit, that for 'glorified cheese on toast' it was good...I had the steak..mmm. roasted peppers, courgette,green beans, potatoes, creme brulee...oh well thats another fatkins diet blown! including beer and cokes. I am trying to persuade my daughter that I need cheering up every week!
It is a common myth that Tony and Renzo are cousins or brothers! In actual fact they were partners at the Elephant and Castle for over twenty years; as the building at the Elephant is due to be demolished, Tony moved to Bermondsey on his own and Renzo did not agree with the idea. However, the menus of both Pizzeria Castello (Elephant) and Castello Restaurant (Bermondsey) are similar. as the original chef of the Pizzeria Castello moved to Bermondsey with Tony. As a fan of Castello's I wanted to set the record straight!!
