Food was delish! Burratta for appetizer, parpadelle with Bolognese sauce and chocolate lava cake for dessert. Did I mention the pitcher of sangria?

Had a 4pm reservation for Easter and my mother’s birthday but we didn’t sit until 4:37. We wanted to put in appetizers as soon as we sat because we were so hungry but the waiter said the kitchen was too backed up and wanted to put the apps and dinner order in at once so it wouldn’t overwhelm the kitchen. Stale bread bread and water was brought out about 10 mins later. Two and four top tables who sat after us ate before us and there were only four of us. We passed on desert after being there for over two hours.

Always worth the visit. All appys & meals delicious. Tony is the great & does his best to keep the customers happy. If you are in a rush, not the place for you. They do not rush you out, even during Covid times!

Really surprised, Im giving 4 stars because I think that with the amazing food and service they have they can definitely work in the decoration outside and inside. I told my husband when we arrive “ is this somebody’s house “ is this a restaurant?
And it was a restaurant and the dood unbelievable. Súper recomendable and I will be back for sure .

Everything we ordered was thoroughly enjoyed. Our waiter was great, attentive and informative as to Q’s about menu. Our party had 3 special appetizers, both large portions & very good. Dinners were all good sized portions & delicious. Main courses were not rushed out after appys, which is a plus and we were not rushed, even during these times. Tables were set up with more than enough room. Other waitress also checked on our table periodically. Overall a very enjoyable evening for the four of us. Will definitely return and recommend La Campagnola!!

I havent been to this place in about 6 years because of the way they made us wait for 45 minutes with a reservation... because people showed up late for their reservation...(with out covid) again we had to wait 15 minutes because we made to wait because people said they wanted outdoor seating (it was really cold out) and so they sat inside which made us have to wait... I would not care during this time normally but they were like this before the pandemic..

Overall, the experience was fair. The food was just ok. I had the fusilli primavera, which lacked any taste and the sauce was so thin that it did not stick to the pasta. We had to ask one of the servers (possibly one of the owners) to pull her mask up over her nose. Although she did so, she seemed annoyed that we asked her to do so. I would not go back.

It was my 3rd time and me and my boyfriends 2nd time together.
Dee and Raphael made our 1st visit as a couple reason enough to come back besides the obvious delicious food. Tonites visit was even better. Tony was an excellent addition to our evening. I recommend everything. They make an excellent dirty martini and the list of specials and dessert options are exceptional.
We have decided to make it 'our place'. We are comfortable and happy here. It ain't cheap but not expensive either and the food is equal to the cost. Cannot recommend enough.

Unusual locale for a restaurant, in a mixed industrial/residential neighborhood.

Caprese Salad and Chicken Campagnola were excellent.

Very happy with selection.
