Nice atmosphere, kid friendly, accommodating even though they had a private party going on...service was fantastic- Nathan was very attentive, efficient and friendly. Food was tasty- ordered fettuccine alfredo, veal marsala & cheese ravioli (kids menu). Definitely recommend this place when visiting downtown Dallas!

The pasta was good, unfortunately, it was served cold and had to be returned. It is a local spot, with t.v.s on the walls. You would not go here for a special occasion.

Friendly staff and decent food. Only word of caution - the pizza comes out extremely hot. It took 3 days for the burn in my mouth to heal the last timer i visited them. Its hard to control but give it a minute before you stick that pizza into your mouth.

Appetizer of bruschetta was drenched in oil and was buried in diced tomatoes, which made the bread soggy. Caesers salad over filled the bowl, was hanging off of the sides and was drowning in dressing. Huge main meal of angel hair pasta, "pink sauce", and chicken. They mixed the sauce and diced chicken with the pasta for me. I'm not... More

If I could give this place 4.5 stars I would. Virtually everything went right with this place, with only one minor exception. Let's start with the positives: (1) Delicious pizza. I ordered the veggie and it was packed with toppings. Both the sauce and crust were delicious, something that doesn't always happen with pizza. (2) Good portion size. I ordered... More

In Dallas for a conference and our dinner party kept growing....David was very accommodating, welcoming, and went out of his way to provide a special evening. Service was fabulous, attentive, patient, and friendly. Food was excellent. Large portions, nice salad included with entrees, fabulous bread. Appetizers were very tastey without overwhelming the meals. David and his waiters made the entire... More

The restaurant has excellent food and ambiance. The waiters staff was very attentive and professional. There is an excellent wine list and bar. The location is in the heart of downtown Dallas near many hotels and music venues. This is one of the oldest restaurant families in Dallas dating back to the pre-war days when gambling and other vices made... More

Dinner for three - Calamari was over done and the flavour of the batter overpowered the calamari itself, bruschetta was terrible - it was very chewy, absolutely no crunch and overpowered by a strong vinegar taste. The pizza was in fairness good, but the meal was let down by the poor quality of the appetisers. Also we've been in town... More

I have eaten at Campisi's several times. The atmosphere is fun and inviting! I love the shrimp scampi appetizer. The italian style crab claws are also fun to eat. The wine list is pretty good and they also have a nice assortment of other cocktails. I always look forward to their chicken piccata! The desserts are pretty fantastic too! It... More
