“Success leads to compromise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

The success of this once cozy neighborhood place has led to expansion and two
recent remodels resulting in higher prices and smaller portions. Westwood's greedy land-
lords have undoubtedly contributed to this establishment's increased overhead. Too bad....

“Neighborhood fine dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Dont let the exterior or the plain interior discourage you. The service is first rate along with the dinner we had for a party of 4. Fresh and interesting pasta, chicken and seafood entrees. The owner is right on premesis and can handle special requests. Its authentic Italian fine dining.

“Lived up to the excellent Trip Advisor rating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Campagnola Trattoria delivered a solid meal. It has an attractive dining room and separate bar area located in a storefront on Westwood Blvd. Our table (conveniently reserved a day in advance through Open Table) was ready when we arrived.

Everyone in our group ordered something different and everyone was pleased with their food. The only slip came when they mixed up our orders. I was the only one that was initially served what they ordered. It took a few awkward moments for our waiter to figure out the food (they had brought half of our order and the order from a different table). Eventually they got it sorted out. Other than that, the service was friendly and attentive without being irritating.

They have valet parking but we were able to find a spot just up the street at 7pm on a Friday.

“Excellent Dining Experience but a bit pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Located on busy Westwood Blvd, this neighborhood Italian restaurant offers finer dining in a relaxed atmosphere. You can dress however you want. We sat outside and watched people in shorts & sandals and people in evening wear and everywhere in-between come in and out of this popular haunt.

There is easy metered parking on the street and they have valet parking as well for $5.

We asked the waiter for a suggestion and were suspect when he picked the most expensive item on there (Ossobuco con Risott - Braised veal shank in a mixed vegetable sauce served with saffron risotto $27.95) but we did take his suggestion and it was quite good, just not sure it was worth the price

Our other dish - Ravioli Di Riccota - Homemade square shaped ravioli filled with ricotta cheese and spinach served in butter and sage sauce $14.50 was very good.

The wait staff was quite pleasant and we will go back again.

Con - real white table cloths..Nice! White paper spread on top of them..Not so nice. Just use the cloth.

“Classic Italian Dishes at Fair Prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

The place to start is with their Brodetto Mare Caldo - a delicious seafood platter of Manila clams, tiger shrimp, New Zealand Mussels and calamari, with a white wine sauce and plenty of flavorings.
Then, move on to Mezzalune Di Zucca - a homemade ravioli with butternut squash and herbs in a wonderful mascarpone cheese sauce. On another occasion, I went for the Ossobuco con Risotto, which was outstanding. I tried making this thing at home and it's a lot of work! I recommend coming here instead.
