My Favorite – Campiello Uptown is my favorite restaurant in the TwinCities. I have never had a bad meal there. Try a main course of the Basalmic Braised Short Ribs and the steamed mussels for an appetiser. The restaurant has on-site valet parking and is situated on Lake Street so that you can do some people watching through the windows.
Very DISAPPOINTED in service – We had gone to Campiello this past weekend to celebrate a birthday party with somewhere between 20 25 people in our group. The service at first was very attentive and fast and once we ordered it took the amount of time expected to get our food for the amount of people in our group. However the real problem came when it was time to pay the bill from the time we requested the tab until the server actually brought the tab was at least 45 min and in that 45 min the service to our party pretty much stopped and we were left drinkless and servicesless which angered pretty much everyone in the group and when we tried to find out what the deal was with why it was taking so long to get our tab we where left with no answers.
Original – I had had dessert and coffee at campiello a number of times, but had the privelage of having dinner there recently. The word that comes to mind when I think about my visit is "original". I eat out constantly, but nowhere have I seen beef short ribs accompanied by pasta in a simple sauce of reduced vinegar. And it was soooo good. The sea bass was delicate and melted in my mouth. Wine list, reasonable, some cute boutiquey italians highlight. D'Amico, despite my secret wanting for them to do so, has never disappointed me. For dessert you MUST have the panna cotta. MUST. It was our server's first day and she was spectacular. Highly Recommended.
very promising – I was impressed by the good service, the lovely patio, and the fact that every dish we had was tasty, including the pizza. Even the suggested wine of the month was good. I don't like the location, though the patio somewhat compensates for it (too urban), or the prices, but I can't say they are out of line for good Italian. Get someone else to pay and you are set!
Mmmmmmm............... – I'm coming away from this restaurant with memories. I had one of their bi-monthly specials: Sea bass and escarole ravioli with Mussel sauce. It was AMAZING. My little sister and mom had the chicken with spinach and mushroom risotto. It's not the BEST risotto I've ever tasted, but still nice. (For great risotto, go to Basil's). Beef ribs (Dad's choice): Wow, so tender, coming right off the bone. Martinis are fun and very strong. Highly recommended restaurant!
Perfection! – Everything about this restaurant is perfect. From the valet parking to the food to the service, everything was great! Service was flawless even when there was smoke problems in the kitchen.
Long Wait for Salads? – On 11/8/02, my husband and I put our name on the list for a table. The wait was an acceptible 30min-1hr, so we decided to have some drinks. After 30min we checked back w/ the host/hostesse and they told us our table would come up soon. No problem..we waited about 25 more minutes for our table to find out that the kitchen exhaust system was down and that they were only serving salads!!! My husband and I were quite disappointed that they hadn't told us earlier that they were only serving salads....bummer evening at a place we normally love.
Yummy – great italian food. great service. and an amazing patio for the summers. I definately recommend going to the patio for lunch or brunch.
EXCELLENT – INCREDIBLE SERVICE!!! Exceptional food!! Great opportunity for people watching. I enjoyed ever aspect of my experience at Campiellos.
Solid! – Always tasty if not a bit overpriced. Never had a bad experience. Competent staff, creative kitchen, fun martinis, and good company make this a regular stop on my dining circuit. Not for those that are looking for spaghetti and meatballs or fettuccini alfredo.
