I don't understand the bad reviews. The place is clean and the food is delicious. We live in Ocala and every time we are anywhere near Tampa, we drop in and spend at least $50 on gourmet Italian food that can't be found anywhere else.

I've had nothing but positive experiences every time I've visited Castellano's. Their Cuban is easily the best in South Tampa, especially for the price. The Floridian, by comparison, charges over $10 for the size of Cuban you get for $6 at Castellano's. Their deli and meat counters are fantastic and the market shelves stock a nice selection of products.

My single gripe is that the cafe is open only for a few lunch hours on weekdays. It would be nice to be able to stop in there on a Saturday for some of the food they serve Mon-Fri.

Besides that, I have never found the store dirty or noticed any unpleasent odors. I worked in the restaurant industry for over 10 years and have an eye for preventable sanitary problems. The deli crew could be a little faster on weekdays, but that's a just staffing issue.

This is definitely a gem in South Tampa, and well worth the effort.

Pros: Best Cuban in South Tampa, great selection, weekday cafe.

Cons: Cafe open only Mon-Fri for lunch, staff can be slow

I have bought the 5 and 10 # chicken from Castellano's over the years and never had a problem with this. I found the food quality and the price to be excellent. If I have ever had a problem with anything I have ever bought from there I have always gotten the best service and response from the owner's and their family. I don't understand why everyone is putting this place down. We are exceptionally lucky to have such a place to shop and eat here in South Tampa. Thank you for serving our community.

I bought a 5 lb. bag of chicken in there a week ago. I got it home, opened it up and it smelled terrible. I wasn't able to get back up there for a few days so I sealed it and stored it in my fridge. A week later I ran back up there and explained that I purchased bad chicken and could they please just exchange it. Unfortunately the owner was up there (not his son Paul) and he was rude and nasty. He said "I'll lose money on it." and refused to exchange it. He also told me I should have froze it immediately or else it wouldn't have lasted. I am now doing a charge-back on my credit card.

I have made the trek to south tampa for years just to get the italian sausage and really good pasta. I usually have to go on the sly because if the rest of my family knows I am going I get a huge list to take with me for them ..This is true italian cuisine and Italian products. I Love this place .

Pros: The italian sausage is legendary

Cons: Wish the building was larger and parking was better

DIRTY and gross; stay away! Unless you are in the mood for 3-4 days of food poisoning !! I do not understand why anyone would eat here; they must be blind or not have a sense of smell. If they could see, they would see the dirtyness of the place. If they could smell, they would smell the stench of rotten food.

APPALLING; should be shut down by the health dept.

I should have known when I walked into this place and it smelled like rotten meat that it would make me sick. I also should have guessed by the greasy floors, counters and employees.

This place should be shut down by the health department. Absolutely appallingly dirty and smelly. You have to be an idiot to eat here.

I would rather drive to another city to buy Italian oils than subject myself to inhaling the vapors of rotten meat!

Castellano & Pizzo sells high quality meat and authentic italian food and spices. There is a deli and a little dining area you can shop and eat lunch at the same time I do. The store is well organized and always smells good. They share a parking lot so at times parking is limited.
