Cafe Castagna has been creating wonderful food for years. While flashy places come and go they are still here. Service, great food and great drinks is the key. Local ingredients used in a variety of ways leads to some very creative dishes.

Pros: Food is great

Cons: Whats up with the service??

Often heralded as a fine spot for dinner, the Cafe should not be overlooked for an exquisite lunch. I am a lunch time regular and find that the dynamic menu offers many options from delicious burgers, succulent pastrami sandwiches, house

I am a salad fanatic and I love Castagna" (in the Cafe) Ceasar Salad. Their salad has a little bit of bite and a lot of garlic. The rest of their food is also pretty great!

Cons: Noisy

The food was average, a little over-priced at best. The only thing ruining the experience are the acoustics. It was like sitting inside of a kettle with a few djembe players from the sidewalks of Hawthorne. Maybe the concrete walls

A simple, if not austere, interior. Fantastic and attentive staff. The food is well prepared and the portions are reasonably generous. The best day to go is Sunday, as long as you don't mind the holdovers from the main restaurants

Go to 4th Avenue Bento and eat delicious salmon for $5.95. Spruce it up with a piece of onion, garlic and a few potatoes and pay $16 here. If you don't mind paying a high premium for "atmosphere", than this isn't a bad place. The
