“My Magnifico Birthday Extravaganza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

I have nothing but great things to say about the queen of Federal Hill, Camille's. Set in a former mansion Camille's looks like something out of an Italian gangster movie, minus the gangsters. All you will find is superb service, food, and drink here. We enjoyed the famous bolognese lasagna, homemade pasta with meatballs and the Seared Ahi with homemade coconut milk risotto. The table napkin placement and folding tradition was the ultimate in luxury dining details as was the artistic mile high wine pouring mastered by our server David. It was my birthday so I enjoyed Spumoni for Two with my hubby. The girls has fresh gelato with homemade whipped cream just like Mama would make. The presentation of the food was magnificent. The plush leather and velvet decor was outstanding. How's this for service? A patron at the next table forgot her reading glasses and the server brought her a tray of reading glasses!!! Try finding better service in RI's capital city. Have a magical fine dining experience at Camille's. Buon Appetito!

“Good, but. . .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Food and service were, as always, very good. The meatballs are unbeatable and the veal special that I ate was delightful. However, I was put off by the sour mix in the sidecars. They are better than that, and it was disappointing.

“Bon Appetit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Had reservations on a Friday night at 8 p.m. during restaurant week and were seated promptly as we arrived. Our waiter London was very accommodating as one of our party is gluten sensitive so he brought that to the attention of the kitchen. A wonderful extensive wine list gave us numerous choices. We felt they did a fantastic job with number of items offered on the restaurant week menu. Felt it was more extensive than most. The food was excellent as we choose from the sea scallops, pork chop, lobster ravioli and chicken parmigiana. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
The restaurant is located on a small street so we took advantage of their valet parking which made it more convenient than searching for parking

“Classic American Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

The food was excellent with a wide choice on the menu.: The chairs were uncomfortable. The staff were very friendly and attentive. They had a good wine list though perhaps a little light on European wines for an Italian restaurant!
