Closed in 2008- Eden Prairie still open! – One of the most highly rated Italian Concepts ever in the Minneapolis area. There were three locations. Now just two Eden Prairie, MN and Naples, FL. Still among the best around IMHO.
lovely! – Reminded us of the places we went to in Italy. Atmosphere is nice without being pretentious, food was delicious, service was spot-on, and the bill wasn't bad at all. This is not your US Italian Red-Sauce establishment - just delicious Italian food.
Nice escape from Uptown to a lovely european style restaurant – This place has so much going for it - great quality food, ambience and service. After many visits as a secret critic always does, I had consistently good meals and service. I appreciate the changes on the menu from time to time and the exciting items on it. If it's a nice day, it is an absolute must to sit on the outdoor patio. You feel as though have escaped Minneapolis and are somewhere else - like the patio of an italian villa maybe? beautiful ivy colored fences and a waterfall. Very nice. Parking is a breeze given it's in Uptown as they have free valet parking - an absolute positive. Enjoy!
A festive atmosphere and rustic Northern Italian menu keep things down-to-earth at this elegant Uptown restaurant. – In Short
Firelight bouncing off white tablecloths brightens the seductively dim dining room, but it's the kitchen that really lights up this restaurant. Stretching across the entire back wall, the white-tiled kitchen is where all the drama plays out. An army of chefs sauté pastas, dash roasted meats from fireplace to plate and keep a steady parade of savories moving toward the captive audience of young professionals and well-established suburbanites out front.
A Nice Quiet Dinner for Two – After foregoing Chino Latino because we wanted to dine somewhere "calm," Campiello Uptown was a good choice. The food was good, our waiter, John, very friendly and personable, and parking a snap.
Though it took a while for our first round of drinks and for our entrees to come out -- which we can't explain, since it was a Tuesday night and the place was not busy -- we were in no hurry and thoroughly enjoyed the soft lighting and intimate feel of the place.
This was my 1st visit to Campiello Uptown. I have been to the one in Eden Praire -- which is HUGE by comparison -- for lunch, and never would have guessed these two places were one in the same. Campiello Uptown is an excellent dinner date venue :)
vegetarians beware... – the worst restaurant i've been to for veggie italian food...other places have a tonne of choice...here, they offered us fettucini alfredo or a sphagetti.....and the waitress was of no use....
Hell's Kitchen – Went for my birthday with my husband and another couple. We were seated and greeted promptly-nice beginning. Nice decor but very noisy. Martinis $9+ - not going there! Nice wine list, bit spendy, good selections. It took at least 30 minutes to get our salads and after being there for OVER 1-1/2 hours still had not received our entrees!!(good thing we got plenty of bread) Entrees were small portions-tasty-but NOT good value for $$$. We asked for the Manager and expressed our dismay with the kitchen. She said they were "a bit over their heads" and offered a small apology. After a bit she later appeared at our table again with an apology and "comped" our entrees. Don't go hungry-it will be a very long wait. And don't expect a lot for your money. There are too many good restaurants in this town-Campiello needs to get on their game!
Great for our 1st Anniversary – My husband and I enjoyed celebrating our 1st Anniversary here with great food (including good vegetarian choices), wine, and outdoor dining ambiance that took us back to our honeymoon in Europe. The server recommended a bottle of Pinot Noir that we would love to have again. We had reservations for a Saturday night, but were disappointed to find out it wasn't good for an outdoor table- we had to wait over 30 minutes to be seated. Still, we would return again for a special occasion or for the 1/2 price bottles of wine on Sunday nights just to sit outside and enjoy the night together.
suprisingly awful – Very expensive for very average fare. Staff was curt, place was noisy, portions very small. I was extremely disappointed with food, my party had the duck (good), 3 of the pastas(avg), lamb chops(chared, bad), mussles (awful), calamari(good).
Very Nice – Had a reservation ofr 9:00 pm on a friday night. Was seated promtly, after dropping my car off at the complimentary valet. Nice decor. Went there for my girlfriends birthday and was glad I did. Very intimate and romantic. Service was great. My water glass was never empty and had to be filled 5 times.
Friendly wait staff. Food excellent. Very happy with my experience.
