New Year's dinner nothing short of amazing

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... read 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

Excellent, continental Italian food. Great selection! The Halibut special of the night was absolutely delicious. The waiter was very helpful with out selections. He discussed each item we inquired about. On a Tuesday night the restaurant was almost full by 6. Make a reservation at this popular place.

Visited Campagnola for the second time on a rainy Friday on short notice. Very warm welcome at the door. Enjoyed halibut special and my wife loved the tagliatelli. All steamy hot, fresh and delicious. The fish had a really nice buerre blanc sauce and the tagliatelli was mushroomy and flavorful. Short but perfectly adequate wine list. The menu is short... More

Start with glass of prosecco...then pasta bolognese....radicchio salad......end with featured gelato. Continually wash down with Chianti. Staff was great. Walk 10 miles to burn a few calories. Small, a little loud but worth the noise. Would go again for sure

This restaurant has consistently good food. I recently had their Lemon Chicken dinner and it is one of the best meals I have ever had. My husband loves any of the pastas he has had over the years. One warning, is that service can be very slow. Last time it was slow enough that we got up and went looking... More

Appetizers and dinner were excellent but I was advised not to order one of the desserts but another instead and so I did. The dessert that was suggested was extremely disappointing and was ridiculously small to boot. I said exactly what I thought of this dessert after my one bite to both the head waiter and the owner. Neither apologized... More
