The pasta tasted like stouffers. Our children ordered cokes. They came from cans and we're only allowed one each. The bread was cold, but good. The pizza was good, but wouldn't return for it.

I finally made it to Campanello's. My wife had the spaghetti and meatballs and it was uninspiring. A basic tomato sauce that lacked seasoning and meatballs that did not taste home made. Very generic and store bought tasting. I ordered the Chicken Parm and it...More

Food was very good! Sauce and meatballs were excellent. Atmosphere was old Italian American. Don't judge the book by the cover. Old classic!

Small and quaint...if you're missing Italy, come here to eat! The home-made Italian dressing is addicting, and the meatballs taste like my Grandpa's!!! Fresh garlic and a lot of food for the money. Definitely more affordable at lunch, and they have coupons on their website....More
