Had dinner here at Castro's. The food was good and reasonably priced. The service was good. It's a cosy little spot. Has a few token Castro pictures up on the wall. We were very happy with the food and service here.

Yep - good Ozzie versions of Italian. They do a really good seafood pasta and a seafood risotto.
