When we walked into La Campagnola, I had the feeling that I was in some place special. The Tuscan décor was tranquil and pleasing to the eye. We arrived mid afternoon on a beautiful Sunday and the restaurant was empty. The hostess sat us at a nicely set corner table. In the midst of this beautiful space, I looked to my left against the wall and there was a 2 foot cardboard Easter bunny. I looked straight ahead, and there was a room with no door where the wait staff performs what should be “behind the scene” work. I looked to my right against the wall and there was another 2 foot cardboard Easter bunny. If when the hostess seats you, you ask for a table away from the server room and cardboard figures; you will have less distractions and a pleasing view of La Campagnola’s beautiful Tuscan Décor.
Our waitress Erica promptly welcomed us and brought the drinks. The early bird special is an excellent value: soup, salad, entrée and dessert. We had the parsnip soup – which was delish – and the pasta e fagioli. I upgraded to a spinach salad with bacon – a good choice -- everyone at the table enjoyed a taste. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a pork chop which is as good as the one that Erica served. The chop was medium rare (as ordered) and juicy. The apple brandy cream sauce paired nicely. The potatoes au gratin was good too. My wife enjoyed the crab cake with lemon garlic aioli, our eldest daughter the salmon Grand Marnier glaze and our youngest daughter the Pasta Campagnola. For dessert: cannolis and chocolate ice cream. The cannolis plated nicely with chocolate drizzle and fruit. The ice cream serving was generous. With tax but without tip, the bill came to $83.70. For the record, the drinks were: a beer, an iced tea and two waters.
If you opt for the early bird special and ask for a good table, you will have an excellent dinning adventure at a good price.
