The Chateau is definitely "old school" and that among other things makes it work. We have eaten here many times over the years & really love the hospitality in addition to the food. I love the chicken parm dinner and my partner typically goes for broiled / haddock or cod & butternut squash. We stopped in on a Tuesday so... More

This was one of my mothers and aunts favorite restaurants. This was my first time here. Food was very good, with large portions. Took leftovers home for lunch. Prices were very reasonable. Also on Tuesdays kids eat free. The house wine was no bargain however. Next time I'd move it up a notch.

What more can I say about the Chateau other than it is probably one of the best family Italian restaurants in the Boston suburbs if you go try their toasted raviolis with meat sauce and their veal cutlets utterly delicious.

We have eaten here several times and have not been disappointed. Love the tripe!!! Veal dishes are awesome. Bread is always super fresh. Servings are generous, prices are reasonable. Staff is helpful, professional and friendly. Will go back again soon. So many things I still want to try! The chopped salad is so good! Try it. You won't be disappointed

We arrived on a weekend night following an afternoon theater performance. While we had to wait to be seated, the line moved quickly. Once seated our server came promptly. The menu is extensive with standard Italian dishes, plus seafood, burger and salad options. We opted for manicotti and the calamari over linguine, served with the Chateau's famous scali bread (very... More

The Chateau Restaurant chain is owned/operated by the Nocera family, established in Waltham many years ago. Now they've grown to several stores throughout Massachusetts.....Bottom line is this: Get to one of them...they are awesome in prices and quality of food and service. A definite cannot miss !!!

My Italian-American inlaws don't really eat this way at home, but when they want comfort food that speak southern Italian, this is where they head. I was in town for a funeral and afterward the family rented a full room, and the restaurant set out trays of food that they served us from. For banquet food, it was pretty darn... More
