Excellent food....but pricey! I don't often go to La Campania because I believe you can get food just as good (maybe even better) at better prices in the same market area.

This is our anniversary go to for about 20 years. The food, wine and service very special. Sitting at the bar is not as special but same food. A little chilly in the winter.

Another fun and interesting meal at La Campania. Always consistent and very good. Service is excellent. Sat outside under the canopy. Can be a bit expensive, but not out of the norm for this area. We will keep returning.

This place never ceases to amaze us! We started with figs with goat cheese & seared fois gras, simply superb. We moved onto the duck & a special, venison tenderloin. The duck was fantastic,but the venison definitely was the star. It was exquisite, tender, flavorful!...More
