This is the kind of pizza you don't share, make them get their own man!! A large is really more of an individual size pizza. The crust is thin and the toppings flavorful....quality and always prepared well. Makes all other pizza just seem half baked.

My husband and I ate here for lunch. We split a pizza. Not sure what all of the rave reviews are about because this pizza was not good. It wasn't horrible but as a self proclaimed pizza connoisseur, this fell flat...big time. Delivery chain pizza's are more worth your taste buds! Bottom line: don't go.

When we lived in Dallas, Campisi's was one of our Top 5 favorite restaurants. The pizza and pasta are wonderful and the ambience is old time New York Italian. This restaurant is legendary in Dallas, so you should check it out.

Surprisingly, I really enjoyed this restaurant. The thin crust pizza was really good with great consistency in the crust, meaning it wasn't floppy but didn't make you feel you were eating off a cracker. The tomato sauce was not overpowering and the pepperoni had a great flavor to them. We visited Campisi's with a large group (20+) and the service... More

So it's clichéd and maybe a bit stereotypical to make references to Italians in the Mafia but in the case of Campisi's it's sort of a part of the folklore surrounding this restaurant. The "Campisi's Egyptian" is a Dallas landmark restaurant. So why does an Italian restaurant have a name like "Egyptian" attached??? Well, legend has it that the founders... More

We have frequented Campisis as a family since I was a little girl in the 1960's at the original Campisis in Dallas. We love Campisis in Dallas and go as often as possible. This was our first visit to the Fort Worth location. My first love will always be the original but the Fort Worth location was wonderful. The food,... More

Me and my boyfriend had our first date in this restaurant. i like the interiors and the design. It is a typical classy bistro american restaurant. Aside from pasta and other Italian dishes, they also serve beers too. The servings of pasta is great and it tastes good too. Place is clean and cozy and the staffs are friendly and... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended Campisi's, so a few of us traveling on business decided to try it. I had a personal-sized pizza. I loved the crust--it was thin and crispy. But, the rest of the pizza was average. The same goes for the fried ravioli that we had as an appetizer. I would return if I were in... More

I've lived in Dallas my whole life. People always say where is the best place to eat? Well, you can't come to Dallas and not eat here. Campisi's has had the best pizza in town for 50 years (get the salami and sausage). And you must have the Joe's toast!!! Everything on the menu is great. Simply said, this place... More
