“Oasis in a food desert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Downtown Reno food choices are pretty much bland buffets and fast food. We happened upon Campo and had a most pleasant surprise. Draft Italian beers, great bread, attentive service, and a nice ambience add to the food experience. The wood fired pizzas are very tasty and the pasta carbonara was quite good, Perhaps in New York or Chicago Campo would be average, but in its setting the restaurant is an excellent choice.

“Trendy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

Modern Italian serving fresh fare. The seafood stew was a generous helping of clams, mussels and shrimp in a flavorful broth. Quite a selection of interesting designer cocktails. Service was attentive, and location is convenient to the downtown multi-screen cinema.

“Awesome Italian Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

Unfortunately we arrived only to experience the late lunch menu, so we were limited on choices, but there were happy hour specials. Onion Focaccia is served complimentary. We started with the small salami board, which was very good. Some of the meats are made in house. Then on to butternut squash soup, which was also tasty. The Margherita pizza was very good, baked in a wood fired oven. Dessert was the incredible caramel budino. There is a bar area and they also have outside seating. The restaurant sits on the Reno Truckee River Walk, so you get a view of the Truckee River. They have floor to ceiling glass doors that open in the dining room also. Staff is very friendly and decor is very nice. This is a must do while visiting Reno. If you can eat here often, I would join their loyalty program.

“Best food and dining experience in Reno”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

Hands down my favorite restaurant in Reno right now. Been there 3 times (twice with just my wife and another with 3 couples) and each time the food and ambience have been close to perfect. Have had the mussels twice - has that type of wonderful garlic/white wine broth you want lots of bread to sop it up with. The bacon in the Cobb salad was transcendent (sounds like something Homer the food critic would say). Got the campo pizza twice...but last time switched to the pork platter and was very happy. The pork platter rotates what is on it, but if the pork belly is on there, it's hard to say no. The sangria we get is always nice and refreshing...and the overall ambience is very warm an comforting. Service has always been solid. The prices are decent - it's not cheap, but I feel you definately get what you pay for. To quote another reviewer, this really is like a restaurant you would find in a large city.
