Castelli's Restaurant at 255

Fosterburg Road, Alton, IL 62002


Throwback, family-friendly American supper club with famous fried chicken, a bar and a small patio.

This is the region’s oldest restaurant, operating for nearly 80 years with the same family of ownership.  What started out on a farm to feed people from the coal mines of Illinois, soon introduced a specialty fried chicken called Talk-N-Chic. The Castelli family restaurant is a mainstay and a must eat location for all people.  If fried chicken is not your favorite, try some of the signature Italian dishes with homemade tortellini, fettuccine and an incredibly puffy and delicious deep fried-ravioli!
