Excellent food .....even better service
Although we have been to Caffe Casta Diva many times, we continue to enjoy dining there as our dependable “go to” restaurant where we take friends & celebrate special occasions. Everything about the restaurant is special: staff, food, ambiance. They have it all.
The food here is absolutely delicious every time we visit. Don’t hesitate to go! The atmosphere is great! The wait staff are terrific. Don’t miss this gem! It is one of our very favorites!! Pasta is homemade. Very, very good
Casta Diva was a great first time experience to dine at. I took my boyfriend for his Birthday and the food was excellent and so was the service. When I reserved online I requested a small pastry and candle and for them to sing and they did! It is a smaller restaurant but very nice for a date night. Prices were reasonable and it is BYOB! Cant wait to go again!
Terrific food, carefully prepared and organically and locally sourced.
Very friendly and welcoming service, food was great and byob was a plus. The octopus was my fav! I would Def go back !
Consistently delicious and welcoming. A favorite in a city filled with great restaurants.
Great neighborhood go to restaurant. Never disappoints.
I went on Friday night with a party of 3. We ordered 2 apps and 3 main courses and ate family style. Everything was outstanding! I’m so happy that my friend from out of town was able to enjoy this amazing Italian BYOB with us!!!
Service is always excellent and friendly. Food is delicious, although mine came out at room temp. Nevertheless an excellent meal.
Great specials. Bronzino was perfect. Great service.
We loved the food and service. However, a lot of the tables were very close together and which made it feel a lot less intimate as many people could hear our conversation:
Great find! Fabulous food. Quiet area of the city. Will go again!
Great Italian BYOB, above average food, reasonable prices
Excellent place, I came early and no problem to sit and read for a few minutes. Menu simple but elegant Italian dishes and other Mediterranean styles. My sliced duck breast with Brussels sprout greens and a base of sweet potato purée, really good. Side of grilled cauliflower. Poached pear with gelato. All excellent. Casta Diva Is a BYO and we had a good wine to go along with it all.
Consistent neighborhood favorite. Gets crowded and the crowd, though more elderly, gets noisy.
BYOB and nice staff. Good quality food
Although the food was delicious, the service was so bad that we will not be going back. Some of the worst service I’ve ever had at a restaurant anywhere.
It was my first time and I already have another reservation!
The best food, my go to restaurant. I have never been disappointed. I make my own pasta and love to cook. I think the food is outstanding and truly homemade, housemade pastas
We've eaten dinner here dozens of times in the last 15 years and it's always excellent. The menu contains old favorites as well as some newer items. The pasta dishes are the specialty of the house and always high quality and tasty! When it's full, which isn't unusual, it's loud, and that's the only thing I wish were different.
Most food was very good but my pasta stuffed with ricotta and spinach was not. The pasta was thin and dried out tasting like cardboard, and the filling could hardly be noticed. Very disappointing for such a good restaurant.
As always food is great as well as service!!
Stephen's restaurant is always enjoyable!!
Service was great and the food was fresh and delicious. Calamari appetizer was perfect!
Good food. Servers were unprofessional and impolite.
As always, everything at Casta Diva was perfect
Tables are narrow - more so than many other restaurants. Food had a bad day when we ate. Fish was loaded with bones - I spit out portion with so many small bones. Spouses salad came with pecorino cheese and an uninvited amount of goat cheese. Other reviews are universally outstanding, so we were let down with our evening.
Better options around Rittenhouse. BYOB is its best feature.
Another great meal. The special veal chop was excellent!
Service was great.
A bit crowded.
Always delicious! Amazing pasta dishes Cash only and a BYOB
Food and service were very good, but the noise level nearly spoiled the evening for us, We could hardly hear our table-mates talk. The people at one table were excessively loud, causing others to speak more loudly. I asked the manager if there was no way to control he noise, and he responded with a curt "No!"
I think that the manager could ask a table full of noisy people to lower the volume a litttle,
The manager's response to my question made me resolve never to return to Caste Diva.
I brought family and was just embarrassed by the horrible service. It was like why are you here?
Delightful BYOB with reasonable priced menu. I would definitely go back except next time,
I would request a table in the front of the restaurant. We were seated at a table next to the bathroom and in front of the kitchen door. Not great ambiance. Also, the tables in the back are so close together.
The service was mediocre, but the food was good, somewhat creative take on Italian cuisine.
Diva was our local “go to restaurant “. Then we moved. It was nice to come back. We will come back again sooner next time. Dana took great care of us and the kitchen crew excelled. Always get the calamari. Still excellent. Had two pastas. Both excellent. And, their coffee always smelled good and still is. If you’re in the Rittenhouse area go to Diva.
I have eaten at Casta Diva many times over the past 10 years but I had not been there for some time. Dinner this past Sat night was great and in particular the veal chop special of the night was outstanding. Excellent food, solid service, reasonable sound level and a byob make it a great value.
The food was perfect and divine as always. Artichoke app, fennel salad, branzino. Service is good. Place is very loud when filled.
Food was excellent. I especially loved my gnoudi, like a large, fluffy gnocchi made with ricotta: SO delicious. Service was very attentive....will definitely return.
My second visit in the last 2 months. Very tasty appetizers: an artichoke and a calamari. It was a busy night due to Valentine's Day but the service kept up and so did the kitchen. Congrats to the staff. My husband's wild boar shank was quite good, my lobster pasta ok, not up to the other dishes. We will come again for sure.
Dinner was awesome from Caesar salad to lobster bolognese to veal chops through gelato. Great food, good service!
Consistently delicious food, friendly knowledgeable servers. Always a wonderful experience.
