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.

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

It was not the first visit to this place, but we have not been for a while. This time we got a table in probably the best (besides the wine cellar) part of the restaurant, near the fireplace. The food: excellent without any exceptions. We could not get the wine was recommended by the app. on my phone, but based... More

We walked in and immediately memories from our trip to Italy came back. All those small, nameless restaurants each with a meal better than the last. We were greeted and seated in no time. It was a bit loud and the chatter was not in Italian, but otherwise we could have crossed continents. The menu and wine list was tantalizing,... More

We can't say enough good things about this restaurant. We have now been here several times and have had a superb experience each time. The food is delicious and the service is outstanding.

We had dinner with a group of 6; I was excited because of the rating on TA, but I must say I am somewhat disappointed. As starter I had the asparagus with prosciutto, this was a good dish. The main course was risotto with lobster, this dish disappointed me. The risotto was too "thick" and came heavy on the stomach.... More

My husband and I have lived in Waltham for years and never been to La Campania. We noticed it's #1 on Tripadvisor so we wanted to try it for a special occasion. We went on Monday evening when the blizzard was starting, so there weren't many other diners. We enjoyed the atmosphere (lit fireplace included) and the food was delicious!... More

It typically takes a weeks notice to obtain a reservation here. And the food is acceptable. But for the prices they charge, you have to deliver the entire package. And our waitress was not up to the task. The fact that she was completely ignorant of the wine list might be excusable if there was someone else who could provide... More

Often times one hears about a restaurant that has been a staple in a community for some time only to be disappointed once you get around to visiting. Not the case here. From the warm greeting to the food to the service, everything was close to perfect. I would describe the atmosphere as upscale rustic and that description fits the... More
