We were a little taken back at first by the prices on the menu but once we took our first bite, it became apparent that it was going to be worth it. They don't have a traditional pinot noir but our waitresses(who was very personable, professional and knowledgeable) walked us through what they serve as a substitute and it was... More

I had received a gift certificate for my birthday and we went for a fun summer evening dinner a few weeks ago. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was quite pleasant and charming for a restaurant find on Main Street in Waltham. We were surprised at the menu selection and the size of the crowd. My husband has an... More

Very nicely decorated with candles , flowers and linen tablecloths. The service was efficient and helpful. The food was excellent. We enjoyed the beet salad, the lobster pasta dish , dessert and wine. The... More

For our anniversary, my wife and I went to La Campania in Waltham, MA, and we were delighted with the entire evening! In addition to a glass of red wine from an extensive wine list, we started with antipasti. I had the Chiopino (shellfish in a delicious red broth with a slice of bruschetta to soak up the broth), which... More

We eat here several times per year. It is one of the best restaurants in the Boston area. Make reservations early, becasue it seemingly sells out virtually every night of the week. Be sure to ask the wait staff for food guidance. They never steer you wrrong.

Great service most of all, if it is just a couple or small group of friends try and sit at the bar. The bartender, Mark, on Thursday nights is so personable and fun to chat with. The wine selection is amazing and the food is great.

My 20-something daughter and I went in hoping to experience truffles. Sadly they weren't on the menu that evening. My daughter explained to our waitress truffles are on my bucket list. She kindly excused herself, spoke to the chef and returned saying the chef had one truffle left and he recommended it be shaved and served in a sauce over... More

This restaurant has interesting ways of cooking and presenting food. On the other hand, a main course of fish should have more than 1 - 1.5 ounces. The fish was described as coming with pear. There were two slices, each about the same size as a fingernail and half the thickness. The prices are on the steep side. I can... More
