The food was delicious and the people were very nice. However, we waited, literally, 2 hours to get our dinner! This was after 1/2 hour without even bread. The waitress finally offered to buy us drinks, but we didn’t want any. When we got the check, we were surprised to see nothing was comped for us.

I’ll make this quick because I get mad just thinking about my experience here. Located in a weird warehouse area. Parking lot is dark and narrow and a pain to get in and out of. Waiters and staff are incompetent. The kitchen left the string on my braciole. Waiters acted like it was no big deal. They didn’t comp the meal. Not the Valentine’s Day experience we wanted.

As usual; my wife and I enjoyed our meal very much. They seemed to to be understaffed; but all of the servers and bartender seemed to help each other out. I have tried many of the dishes here and can’t say I have ever been disappointed. During this visit I had the chicken Murphy. Delicious!!

Have dined at La Campagnola a few times now and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. In addition to their menu they always have quite a few delightful specials.

I work around the corner and go here frequently. You cannot get better Italian food anywhere. The staff is friendly and we had an inexpensive bottle of wine that was excellent. The waiter will recommend it to you. Italian red.

Came here for New Year’s Eve dinner, first off they had limited menu which was disappointing. My boyfriend didn’t care for anything on this menu. I had lobster ravioli which tasted rather fishy and came out look warm. My bf had a chicken dish with red peppers and cheese. There was big piece of pepper on top of chicken. Not very appetizing. The chicken was a breaded but was mushy and very tough. His dish was disgusting. The decor needs serious updating. Looks rather dated and dingy. Only saving grace was the service. We had a sweet older gentleman. Very disappointing New Year’s Eve dinner

We went for Christmas Eve and they only had a special limited menu on offer, so I can't be sure how the food normally is. That was disappointing, since we had all reviewed the menu online ahead of time and picked our favorite entrees--none of which was actually available. It would have been nice to be contacted in advance about the limited menu, so we would have been prepared. It's never good to start off a meal already disappointed before you've even taken a bite!

The service was very good (though we felt a bit rushed, considering how many empty tables were in the restaurant), but the food was just so-so. One person had fish that they said tasted very fishy, so much so that they were concerned they might be sick the next day. Another had ravioli that tasted store-bought/frozen, and one of the ravioli had a big finger hole in it, where someone in the kitchen must have checked the temperature. The others had chicken or pork dishes that they described as "better than they look, thank God", but not especially tasty.

I imagine we'd have had a better experience on a regular night, rather than a holiday, when they're trying to rush people out to accommodate later reservations.

My family and I loved LaCampaagnola! The restaurant is very modest in its' ambiance but very, very good in the food that it serves and the service that attends it. I would recommend it to people who really enjoy excellent food cooked in an authentic Italian way and the pleasant atmosphere of a wonderful little gem of a restaurant in the industrial section of Kenilworth.

Everything was very good. The service was helpful and friendly. There was enough time between receiving our salad and then entrees. The veal I had was tender and flavorful. Mixed seafood dinner my husband had was also very good with salmon, clams, stuffed shrimp! To top things off he had tiramisu which was so light. We will return again.

Excellent all around - at a Southern Italian restaurant the quality of the sauce matters a lot and their marinara is outstanding. Appetizers were excellent (mozzarella en carozza, shrimp in a spicy marinara, and a fig special. Entrees (meat tortolloni in a rose sauce, chicken parm, and "chicken Campagnola" - breaded cutlets with sauteed peppers in a cream sauce) were equally good, and I liked the salad dressing. Will definitely be returning!
