Great for a special occasion

We went here for our anniversary dinner. Everything was excellent. The waiter made us feel right at home. Since some reviewers mentioned that the food was too salty, we told the waiter that we needed to have less salt than normal, and it was not a problem.

My girlfriend and I walked in without reservations on what was a surprisingly busy weekday evening. While willing to make a reservation for another night, the staff was able to accommodate us for that very night. the service was very friendly. we both enjoyed our food and loved the decor and our dessert.

This is a little difficult to review, a mix of pluses and minuses. I went there to eat good food and was disappointed. We arrived there at 6pm, mid-week. The premises and ambience are excellent. The staff are friendly, although a little slow, considering our early timing and a lack of crowding. My first request when I placed my order... More

We were so glad to be back - had a fabulous meal here in January and it was just as good this time. Grilled figs stuffed with gorgonzola along with prosciutto was mouth-watering, as was the clipped salad with a lemon and truffle vinaigrette and artichokes 3 ways. Campanelle with San Marzano tomato sauce was a little bland - needed... More

One of the best restaurants in Metro Boston. Incredibly charming surroundings...like we were in Italy. The fig and prosciutto along with the spicy rock shrimp appetizer were amazing. The Branzino was perfecto. The special venison chop was one of the best cuts of meat I've ever devoured. And the chocolate souffle was the final chapter in a fantastic meal. La... More

My husband and I went to La Campania to celebrate our anniversary, and the meal was excellent. I had a delicious salad to start and really enjoyed a mushroom risotto for my main course. The food is filled with fresh flavors and cooked to perfection. Our server was attentive without being intrusive, and one of the reasons I love this... More

We recently celebrated another family occasion at our favorite Italian restaurant, La Campania. We ordered the soft shell crab, fig, scallop and prosciutto appetizers. All yummy! The favorite entrees were the beef, halibut and duck. The guest of honor simply devoured his duck entrée and considers it one of the best dishes at Campania! For desert we enjoyed the always...

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. Different rooms each with its... 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!
