I kind of hate to submit this positive review because we so love this place, and it's hard to get in to, but... I must be honest and give them credit. This is for sure my favorite restaurant in the Metro West area. Warm, welcoming environment, very much like I imagine Florence to be like... read more

This is a very attractive restaurant. The owners certainly put a great deal of attention and expense into the decor and details. We were there on a Thursday night and it was absolutely packed which shows its popularity but also caused the noise level to be extremely high. The menu is innovative and 5 out of 6 of us had...

There was 7 of us at a nice round table in a corner and we had an excellent meal and excellent service, for my daughter's college graduation dinner!

Ok, the location is not convenient to downtown Boston. The outstanding quality of food, preparation and scrumptiousness of the food as well as having probably the best wine cellar in Metro Boston make this a must dine spot. I was lucky to have an older Greek waiter who has Euro charm and sophistication. This was not the case with our... More

The fish was absolutely delicious, one of the best items on the menu. The service is always great here. I have been here a few times and I must say that this past meal was probably my favorite. We started with the arancini and pasta - both very good as well. The restaurant is deceiving from the outside - and... More

The perfect date night venue and menu tucked away hidden in suburban Waltham. Authentic italian recipes and family run. Do yourself a favor and try this place out.

Whatever you do, don't miss ordering the puddings! They take 35 mins+ and have to be ordered at the start, but they are well worth it. Chocolate mousse or rhubarb pudding...amazing flavours. Another business meal, but this time the difference was that the food was equisite....from the tuna through the pasta to the dessert. You won't need the large pasta... More

Poor introduction to our first visit to La Campania, when upon a timely arrival the hostess- clearly in a very confused state – only located our reservation after five minutes of rummaging through a clipboard of assorted notes. We confirmed the bar seating the day before, but were denied and seated at a table next to perhaps the busiest waiter... More

My husband and I like to go here as a special treat once or twice a year. I accidentally lost my drivers license here once (I never put things back in my wallet) and because I had a conversation with our waitress about originally being from Kentucky, they actually looked up my parents in Kentucky and called them to have...

We used a gift certficate to go to this restaurant, and what a nice gift! La Campania is a treasure in an unassuming lcation on Main Street in Waltham. Once you step inside you're in a different world; warm, welcoming, and intimate. The food (Italian, gourmet) was superb and the waitstaff was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive without being overbearing. We... More
