Great ambiance, service, food and wine list. Worth every dollar spent. Old school service. That's why they are so successful. The quality of the crowd is high. Will repeat

An old school Italian restaurant with amazing food and top notch service. Everything here from the seafood salad to the veal chop to the porterhouse to the lobster are amazing. The only thing we didn't love were the meatballs. The off the menu sausage onions...More

La Campagnola calls itself a "country restaurant". It is informal - and very welcoming. Before any food arrived we were struck by the sincere attitude and interest of the folks who work there. Very different from most NY restaurants. The food itself was excellent. There...More

Great neighborhood Italian. There is a reason it's been around for so long and always busy. Great food, service and ambiance. Tommy at the bar is terrific. A must go for great Italian food in NYC.
