Amazing Experience!

The food and service were extraordinary. The four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the wait staff was terrific. We had pasta and steaks with champagne for a special wedding dinner. I would definitely go back and I highly recommend to everyone.

We went over the Holidays. So sorry to see how this restaurant has changed,and sorry to say we won't be back. Service was okay. Food really not good. It has a nice atmosphere, and we enjoyed going here to avoid the drive downtown. Well, this was our last visit, and I don't think they really care!! The night we wentit... More

Our aunt and uncle treated us to dinner at Campagnola and it was quite a treat indeed! The Duck was extraordinary and unusually large. We were able to have a second meal from the left-overs. The scallop appetizer was small but very good. We also want to compliment Freddie. He is hard-working, kept our glasses full and plates cleared. The... More

It has been a few years since I had dined at Capagnola. Based on memory, I was looking forward to a very good meal. I was disappointed the food was not memorable on this occasion, I wish I could say the same about the service. It wasn't that it was horrible, our waitress was simply inattentive. We each ordered a... More

I enjoyed the ambience immediately walking in the door...a glass of red at the bar with candles lit on bar and tables. This 20 year restaurant delivers atmosphere, wine and dinner. A must try. I'll be back soon!

We like Campanola for a special night out. The food is excellent, service impeccable. Menu changes with the season. We have never been disappointed. Fish dishes are always beautifully prepared. Game dishes when offered (I have had rabbit and venison) are unusual and a real treat. Vegetarian pasta but limited vegetarian entrees. Locally sourced produce and meats, as available. Wine... More

After years and years of avoiding this restaurant, because I heard negative things when it opened, my wife finally insisted we try Campaganola for her birthday. It's a small place, probably seats no more than 50-60 at full capacity. The room is dimly lit and the decor is fairly spartan. I ordered a manhattan which was perfect. Not a fancy... More

I ate here for New Years Eve seven months ago. It was amazing. I compared this place to Charlie Trotters. So we go on 7/25/15. I love octopus and I love duck--that's what I ate on New Years. So I order the same thing. It was horrible. How can this happen? The octopus was over cooked and the white beans... More
