"The food was very good. However, one young couple in our party of six was not particularly hungry and opted to share a main course. The waitress rudely pointed out to them several times that she did not advise this since this would result in small portions to the point of making everyone uncomfortable. Other than the wait staff's attitude, the experience was good."

"Food, service were excellent. Very, very noisy. We were very annoyed that nowhere on Open Table or in the reservation confirmation did it mention that it was BYOB or CASH ONLY. BIG MISTAKE. Very embarrassing. We were told it was cash only when the check arrived. Only a few locals know. Not good."

"We absolutely enjoyed our dinner on Saturday night and having it a BYOB was a bonus. The food and service were exceptional. My husband had the Wild Boar Ragu which was so good he didn't want to share! I had the pasta with mushrooms and walnuts which also was excellent. We ran out of time (concert) so did not have a chance to enjoy dessert which I am sure would have also been very good. Looking forward to returning. The only downside was having to carry cash since they don't accept credit cards."

"I had been to Casta Diva many times in the past but not since this major improvement and refinement in the menu. It was a favorite already in my book. So I was pleasantly surprised when we sat down. The service was impeccable, the food came out like clock work, and the presentation was top notch. The duck was unsurpasable, and my fillet was cooked to perfection. I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant. We were so full we could not fit in a desert."

"Chef Steve is an artist. Each dish looks beautiful and tastes delicious. The subtleties in the mixture of flavors he uses brings smile after smile. And he draws on his Italian heritage for a rich knowledge of the best ingredients to combine into new dishes. An event."

"The Diva rocks--we'd been away for months, revisited her last week, and have to say that it was a memorable meal. The wild boar ragu over paparadelle was unforgettably delicious, just as outstanding was the calamari appetizer (couldn't stop eating the sauce) and the braised artichokes. Can't wait to return!!"

"This small restaurant has gone from a pasta joint to a terrific alternative to the former Matyson. The menu is thorough and there are daily additions to the menu. We had the duck three ways and the salmon w/leeks. Both were cooked to the perfect temp and looked as good as they tasted. This was the 2nd time i've been back since the renovations and upscale menu, and I was very impressed. The service was excellent. This is a byo, cash only restaurant, but there are atm s nearby."

"Our last visit to Casta Diva happened to be near Valentine's Day. As expected, they had a "special" menu with inflated prices. Much to our surprise, three weeks later the Valentine's menu was still the only option--except this time the food did not come with the fancy garnishes that might have convinced a starry-eyed Valentine's crowd that the price was right. One appetizer, two pasta dishes (the least expensive items on the entree menu) and a tip were $80. Yes, that's right--one appetizer, no dessert, no coffee, no meat or fish entrees. That's just too much for a cash-only BYOB, even when the food is delicious. It was a busy night in the city--with lots of theater and concert options--and they were only at about 40% of capacity. Perhaps others knew?"
