We were delighted with the food, the menu was diverse and interesting. Our group had varying tastes; meat, seafood, vegetarian and all needs were met! We had made reservations ( highly encouraged) and requested a round table - it was great fun to have our group of 8 able to chat with each other easily. Service was attentive and the... More

The best kept restaurant secret in Massachusetts. As good or better than any of the more popular restaurants in the Boston area. It is convenient and accessible if you live in the western suburbs as we do. It is first class dining without the traffic. The atmosphere is really nice with a real Italian feel.We went there on a busy... More

It's an expensive place, but everything I've ever had has been first-rate. Typical classic Italian choices and an excellent wine list.

Hands down best of the best in Waltham area. Comfortable setting, great value wines, tremendous food, service was outstanding (sat at bar with Nick). Relaxing setting reminds one of the old country, great dishes (I had pork Milanese, but gut beside me had best looking rack of lamb I've ever seen). Definitely a repeat ;-)

I do not like to give reviews on restaurants that I have dined in once or twice. I never feel it is an adequate representation of the many menu items. So, having said that this is our 11th year going to La Campania. We dine there 5-6 times a year. It is always consistent and delicious. A big basket of... More

La Campania is hands down our favorite restaurant in Boston. It's certainly the finest Italian. Everything is so fresh, sophisticated yet unpretentious, the way each dish is prepared and presented is spot on, bringing out the freshness and flavors of the ingredients rather than drawing unnecessary attention to the chef's artistry--there is true art in this that transcends most top-flight...

This is my favorite restaurant of all-time. It is expensive so you may want to save it for a very special occasion. You absolutely have to make reservations as you will not get in otherwise! The service is top-notch, servers are experts on the meals and wines, and everything is exquisitely prepared. There is a small table by a window... More

I have been eating at La Campania for special occasions for at least sixteen years. It's my favorite go-to restaurant for romantic occasions. The food is delicious, the service is excellent, and the wine list is terrific. I don't think my husband and I have ever had a bad meal there. David (the owner) has done a great job over... More

My daughter's family and friends took my wife and me to celebrate my birthday. The food was phenomenal. We were seated at the chef's table. It was an amazing experience. The chefs staff performed a ballet before our eyes for 3 hours while we enjoyed a marvelous meal. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good food and a... More
