The special salad was heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, croutons and cheese. Very fresh and tasty. Bread was crusty and the olive oil good quality. Also had the eggplant ravioli with spicy tomato sauce - outstanding. Main dish of calamari was okay, needed more flavor. Dessert was panna cotta with strawberry sauce, light and delicious. Coffee was served piping hot and strong.
Service was exceptional, very friendly and the suggestions were good.
Celestino's is an old favorite and I enjoyed it this time as well.
Salads, pasta, entrees, were outstanding! Wine selection also.
Dinner with my wonderful 14-year-old daughter… Great food and service as always!!
The outdoor dining location was great. There were three in our party and my two companions thought their meals were great. I had the chicken parm and was not impressed. Too much cheese on the breading and not enough sauce.
The major disappointment was that our reservation was for a table outdoors, and when we arrived we were seated indoors. Everyone in are group speaks softly, and the loud room made it extremely difficult to converse.
Great location and we hadn’t been there before. Excellent food choices and experts to help with choices and suggestions.
I am sure during a Normal operating environment their service is over the top. Being short they did an amazing job! This is a new Italian favorite for us and we will be back soon.
The food at Celestino is always reliable and very good. Our servers were very attentive and the experience as a whole was quite enjoyable.
A great food restaurant but with horrible service. Long interval where no one removed plates and the kitchen was in disconnect with servers Overall the food was great but the service so poor I don’t need to go back. There are so many other great Italian restaurants in Los Angeles
Fabulously deep, authentic Italian menu…wonderful value for the price and quality of food.
Great weeknight meal and excellent service.
So glad this gem survived the pandemic.
Thank you so much!
Great food, great wine, and great service. I wouldn't take small children there.
In the reservation we asked for outdoor seating, but when we got there we were told it would take 40 mins to get us an outdoor table. One of the dishes was extremely greasy, and the server got our wine order wrong, we kept the wine just because we didn’t want to keep waiting for a new bottle. The place is a little dated and the food not outstanding, still pretty okay
While the food and ambiance were terrific, the service left a lot to be desired. We were in a side room and we seems to be ignored by both our waiter and the bussers. We repeatedly had to ask for water refills, and our friend had to get up from the table and go ask again for the parmesan cheese he requested for his pasta. I realize that the restaurant got very busy on a beautiful Sunday evening, but for these prices, we expected first class service. That's not what we received.
Waiter service was very poor… no one checked on us if we need anything else and the dessert came after I complained 2x after 20 minutes
My first time at this restaurant and I had high hopes for it. Customer service was great. Food was good. Only downfall was the bugs inside, I had a few bite me on my hands and legs. I had to wave them off my food. It was very disturbing.
Excellent dinner. We arrived a half hour early and were graciously seated. The server was knowledgeable and attentive. The food was delicious. We had plenty of time to enjoy our food.
Four of us were there for a special occasion. Service was extremely attentive and the server's recommendation of an Italian wine was excellent. Two of the entrees were Osso
Bucco which was prepared in a very unusual way and the results were not as palatable as was expected. The other two entrees were conventional pasta dishes which were quite good. As usual, the prices of the appetizers and entrees were relatively high. However, the entire evening including food, wine, service and ambiance was quite satisfactory.
Food was amazing but perhaps the magic is their staff. Antonio was incredible in his recommendations and way to engage us. Can't wait to go back.
Adorable place, authentic Italian, delicious food and a pleasant staff. Would definitely recommend!
One the best places to go for Italian food. The staff and the atmosphere are always perfect.
Dinner at Celestino was wonderful & delicious. Antonio’s service was impeccable. We enjoyed our evening ♥️.
Amazing!! Best Service I have had in years
Really slow service, mediocre food. Two stars for the desserts which were better than appetizers, dinner and the service combined. Won’t be dining here again.
Food was excellent. Very tasty. Service was off. Our server was rarely around and we had to stop whoever we could when we needed something. Not sure where our server was hiding. We had to grab a pitcher of water to refill our glasses. There were 5 off us and we all felt the same. Great food, lousy service.
Celestino’s food is so dang yummy and the staff is wonderful! very friendly, kind and attentive. would definitely go back!
Best calamari steak appetizer in town! Very thoughtful and carefully prepared pasta and mains.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Lovely dining room. A gracious experience.
Made reservations on July 1st for a lunch on July 5th. On July 4th was reconfirmed. Here's the confirmation #, Confirmation #: 2110153857. Since doors were locked we sat outside the establishment for 40 minutes, and finally a staff person came out, asking us what's up. I said, waiting for you to open. He replied, oh no, we're closed on today on July 5th. Interesting, then why did you accept and reconfirm my reservation? Geez.
Brought my out of town in-laws and they were impressed with the food and service. Particularly enjoyed our waiter (Nicholas), who was accommodating and pleasant.
This was our first visit to Celestino’s. Excellent food and wonderful service, but our table was in a bad location and that did have an effect on our experience. We had reservations and asked for a different table but were told no they were expecting too many people.
Excellent restaurant. One of the best in Pasadena.
A touch pricy, but excellent food and service in a comfortable and casual environment. My favorite Italian food in the area.
You want, as JGold would say, to have the risotto. All of the risottos. Wonderful to be back: great ambiance service and location -- and the staff survived seemingly intact after the lockdowns. Grazie.
Always a great meal when at Celestinos. If I can recommend anything in the menu, it would be everything but end your meal with a strawberry panacotta.
Francisco & Jesus provided excellent service. Excellent wine & food suggestions based on what we wanted. Very professional & respectful!!!
Food was excellent. We have been here before and always have enjoyed the food and service. However, this time service was initially slow. After being seated by the hostess, the waiter told a very long time to come to our table. When he did arrive he apologized for the wait and brought us each a complimentary glass of Prosecco. A prefect apology!!! And he was very attentive there after.
We generally love Celestino and have dined there many times. They had an off night.
Best Italian food
We had a very good time at the restaurant. The food and service was excellent. We were not rushed to eat and were able to take our time. I would definitely go back again.
