Food, Glorious Food!

At La Campagnola it's all about the food, and it is glorious! The chef is Italian, the cuisine hence authentic; the atmosphere and service are casual, lovely and welcoming, so that nothing detracts from the main event. We had a couple of salads to start, a kale gorgonzola, and a beet... read more

My wife and my 6 year old daughter joined me for a fantastic dinner last night. All courses were memorable. We had our choice of a few tables and selected one in a corner by the bar. The wait staff was always on top of our needs, many times without asking. Truly enjoyed it and would return the next time... More

We love this place and its welcoming owner and friendly, unpretentious staff. We usually get salad and pasta. The boar ragout is a favorite and the trout has been excellent. The only wish we had is that they would change a portion of the menu from time to time. The dinner menu hasn't added or subtracted an entree in the... More

This is probably the best restaurant in Evanston - even worth a drive from elsewhere. The food and service are consistently great. The owner Steve and his staff are warm and efficient. I would recommend the trout, the steak, short ribs, arugula or kale salad and pretty much anything else. It's small (cozy) and reservations are highly recommended. This is... More

Went to 5:30 sitting for New Year's '14 with wife and daughter. They had a four course meal. Each course had about five picks. I have eaten at Trotter's four times. I think this meal was just as good but with the casual atmosphere. One of the best seafood salads I have had. Wife's beet salad was fantastic. Lobster risotto... More

I don't know if you would "happen" across this place naturally as it's location is a bit further South from the action of Evanston, but it is worth it! The space is perfectly intimate and the service is attentive without being pushy. The menu options are just enough. I can't stand when they try to hard with traditional Italian fare... More

My husband and I are foodies and unfortunately always set our expectations very high. Wow what a payoff here at Campagnola - handmade pastas were superb, 3 out of 4 entrees were all different fish and they were all cooked perfectly! Good wine list at good prices. Biggest bummer was that we didn't find it until late in our trip... More

Our server was adorable, but our meal was the thing we fell in love with. Magical. Great, non-pretentious, comfortable place with amazing food.

This was our second visit here. First time was so good, we couldn't wait to return. The man who took our reservation over the phone was unfriendly, curt and rude. I had a special request and he could have cared less. We sat at our table for up to 15 minutes with no water and no bread. The worst part... More
