Had a dinner for 13 . All family and friends sitting at one long table by the front window and pianist. The service was great as was the food. The pasta appetizers were excellent. The fresh buffalo mozzarella and tomatoes was really special. The background...More

There are Italian restaurants on every corner in the city, but none do it as well as Campagnola. The food is always fresh and imaginative (they have a large specials menu every night) in addition to the typical Italian dishes. They will also make you...More

Slow dignified eating, with waiters who know how to treat you, don't intrude too much, and utter the wry comment when called for. The gnocchi won for me, but many good dishes.

A very good restaurant. Very, very busy, but they do their best to move things along. Everyone ‘s food was awesome, except mine, but they did the right thing and took it off the bill. I would definitely go back. Restaurant is small so expect...More

Dined at Campagnola for my wife's birthday. Food was excellent, atmosphere was great and service was top notch. Portions are very generous (couldn't finish) , glad we finally tried this Italian classic just around the corner from our apartment. Can't wait to return!
