Old World Italian

I love that they are so traditionally Italian. Their food is delicious and the waitstaff is great. The ambiance is nice and it is generally a nice place. It feels a little dated but it is not worth overlooking. Great for a lunch, date and business adventure.

The food was fine, exactly what you expect and what you pay for. My problem is, once again I'm afraid it seems to be a theme recently, the restroom. Now I can only speak for the Men's but why, oh why, can't the management of this establishment put a little effort in keeping it clean and tidy and spending a... More

We chose Camilo's because it was a couple blocks from our motel and our daughter did not live too far from there. We weren't too sure what to expect, but the motel recommended it and we got a discount by showing our room card. The menu and specials was way better than we expected. It was all prepared fresh; the... More

The food here is ok bistro food.Stay away from their bland hamburger and the tepid Caesar. However, the service has gotten worse and worse. I will not go again.

Great homemade food. Feels like I'm in some great, quaint place in Europe. Here for breakfast now. I was here previously for dinner. Both times the food was delicious. The service is wonderful. Great family run feeling. The decor is quite soothing and beautiful.

Great steak sandwich! My mom and I stumbled into this place and were very pleased. We shared the steak sandwich-it had great flavor and was very filling!!! Our server, Andrew, was very friendly and helpful. He got us each our own tea to go! Definitely check it out!!!

Delicious meal, fantastic service. Made you feel like family. We were visiting from Chicago, here for dinner with my cousin who lives nearby. A lovely place, quiet enough for good conversation. Salmon was perfectly prepared, lots of attention to detail. Highly recommended.

One of my favorite locations for brunch but have had exceptional dinners here as well. Very quaint decor - even somewhat romantic at night. Have been eating here for years and the food and service has always been consistent. Many options - from healthy to super decadent things like bread pudding french toast and great Mexican influenced options. Food is... More

It was just ok. That's the long and short of it. The place was empty. We ordered drinks and they arrived quickly. I ordered Sin Zin(nice wine).The bread arrived and was boring bland white bread. My friend suggested the bread should be heated and/or a garlic spread. The server poured an olive oil/basalmic dip for the bread. We ordered the... More

W My daughter and I went for lunch . . . Just walking by and noticed and open table. We both ordered a pesto dish and a fettuccine Alfredo. The pesto was amazing. I added chicken to the Alfredo. The chick peas great. The Alfredo was nothing spectacular. Great atmosphere and good service. Would definitely come again!
