The menu and service are outstanding. Pricey but well worth it. My favorite local restaurant and one of the best in Greater Boston.

Our dinner here was excellent and came out piping hot. Our wait staff was thorough, attentive and informative. Our first experience here was delightful.

Our son and girlfriend announced their engagement yesterday during our visit to Boston. Dinner at La Campania was to celebrate, and the meal itself was something to celebrate. We started by sharing a couple of apps: a small thin crust pizza and lobster tagliatelle. Both were delicious, and were a little spicy. For our main courses, we tried salt encrusted... More

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...
