“I have no idea what everyone is so excited about...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We were just passing through and needed somewhere to eat, so with no time for much research we just turned to Trip Advisor and followed the advice to come here. As we've not dined anywhere else in this town, I couldn't comment on whether this really is one of the best places around: all I can say is that, if it is, the rest must be pretty ordinary indeed (actually, having driven past a few, that might well be the case).

The decor is best described as shopping-mall gloomy: this is just a concrete box with some furnishings inserted. The food was at best ok, and perhaps more accurately a bit odd. The service was friendly enough, but I really felt ripped off at paying premium prices for ordinary food.

Maybe the real moral of this experience is ... don't stop in Campbell River!

“I can confirm all the good reports”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

If I had not read the different comments on Tripadvisor, I would probably never have been in this restaurant: not on the main road and outside it looks not very exciting. Inside decoration is pretty. We had a good meal (for the entrees you can choose between 2 sizes) and the service was friendly.

“so good.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We went to the Fusilli Grill after reading about it here on Trip Advisor and were not let down - the food was so good. I had a smoked chicken pasta dish - they smoke the chicken right there at the restaurant and make the pasta fresh. The waitress was also one of the owners, she was so friendly - really made it an all round great experience. Not hard to find and worth seeking out!

“Very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

The outside look are not very inviting, but we follow the Tripadvisor reviewers recommendations and went in. The restaurant is nice with fine photographic pictures, skillfully modified with Photoshop. The menu was inviting and we where not disappointed. Our meal was well prepared - one of the best we have had in three weeks in Canada, and portions was generous. The staff was very nice. We can fully recommend this restaurant.
