    Each time I visit Providence, I make it a priority to visit Camille's. Their famous lasagne and hearty cassoulet are my favorite dishes. Pair these dishes with a glass of their montepulciano, and you will leave extremely satisfied. The service is attentive and precise. There a lot of choices for Italian cuisine, and Camille's take it up a notch.

    The restaurant had a wonderful menu with many selwctions for all foodies that was flexible, including many local italian favorites and a great and wide array of selections for all diners tastes. My Shrimp fra-diavlo over linguine was a knock out and my wifes ravioli was incredible. The service was personable and outstanding. The drinks rocked the house. The whole experience was awesome ans yes I will be back and highly recommend Camille's as one the premiere Italian restaurants in the area. Try it. You will love it, guaranteed.

    My husband and I were in the area over the weekend to visit our daughter who attends college in Providence. We are always looking for new restaurants to try. Without a doubt, Camille's was one of the finest and best restaurants we have eaten in to date. The food was outstanding, the service impeccable but more importantly we could engage in conversation with my daughter and her boyfriend where we didn't need to shout over one another. The ambiance was wonderful, nice and quiet, yet lively at the same time. Although there are many great restaurants in Providence yet to try, we will definitely be back.

    First time visit. Great atmosphere. I ordered the sea bass special, but it seemed like haddock. My husband was disappointed with the smelt appetizer feeling it was previously frozen. Other wise the rest of the food was delicious and the dessert of banana crepes was the best we had. Tony was an excellent server.

    My family and I had one of the best meals of our lives here! A decorative curtain separated our table from the others on each side, so we had privacy. The service was perfect, very attentive but not intrusive. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. A true dining experience!

    We went to Camille's on a recommendation from someone I met on the airplane who works in the food industry who told me that he made certain to go to Camille's every time he was in Providence. We were not disappointed. The food was fabulous, the service was stellar, and the atmosphere was refined and classic. We too now plan to eat at Camille's every time we are in Providence.

    We visited our daughter during parent's weekend. The traditional meals - lasagna, chicken marsala, chicken franchese - were excellent. Our daughter appreciated the dramatic step up from the "V-Dub." The service was equally outstanding. We then walked over to the river and enjoyed Waterfire. Camille's was part of our wonderful evening in Providence !

    Took a client out to Camille's after an all day meeting in downtown Providence. The ambiance was different, but not necessarily in a negative way, it was just different. A little dark, a bit dated, butI suppose that is what to expect from one of the oldest Italian restaurants on Federal Hill. With that said, the food was great (large portions) and the service was excellent.

    Went for lunch with a friend nd enjoyed the very best calamari I have ever had - ANYWHERE! Borth my guest and myself had soup (leak and pasta fagioli) and the calamari salad. Both were generous serving and the taste was outstanding. It was easy to converse with the noise level very low and the service was attentive but not the least bit intrusive. Can't wait to go back and try other offerings.

Standouts included the calamari, crab cakes, cassoulet, gnocchi, desserts. OK wine list, a bit pricey. Overall a great Italian place and one of Providence's best dining spots. Deserving of 4.5 stars.

    My wife and I went here for our 11th Wedding Anniversary and Camille's did not disappoint. Everyone was very friendly from the moment we dropped off our car at the valet, to the moment we picked it up. The ambiance was very nice, but the best part of the dining experience was the food that was served. This was top notch. I can't remember the last time I had a meal this good, not to mention the size of the portions. Mama Mia!!! I would highly recommend Camille's for anyone that is looking for a great meal and relaxing evening!!

    I have no complaints, Everything is as good as can be from the valets to service, portions and overall quality. One of the most quiet restaurants, a lot of fabric in the decor absorbs noise. I've been going to Camille's for years, I keep it in my Providence fine ding rotation. The food is outstanding, needed a doggy bag.

    Service, food and ambiance were excellent. Our party of 6 enjoyed a wonderful evening at Camille's. Two of our members came later than expected due to rain and inability to take a taxi. The staff could not have been nicer and more understanding about it. Special thanks to our waiter, Steve, who was very professional yet fun. We enjoyed meeting Mike, the general manager. This was our first time at Camile's, but won't be our last. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

    I had a foodie friend in from New Jersey where there are many excellent restaurants - especially in the rhelm of Italian food. I wanted her to have the best RI food experience possible for the brief time she was here. Camille's did not disappoint and lived up to my hype! From our appetizer ( stuffed squash flowers ) through dessert ( Italian cookies ) the entire evening was perfect! The service could not have been improved. Mike and his staff provided a WOW evening. Thank you again for another wonderful restaurant experience. PS I never take home leftovers except from Camille's. They are anticipated as much as when originally served!

    The service was exquisite (except when the waiter forgot my wine) and the food was delicious. My only complaint was the mark-up on a bottle of wine. I fully understand that restaurants make their money on alcohol. I don't even mind spending a lot of money on a bottle of good wine. However, I do mind paying $55.00 for a bottle of wine that I can get for $14.99 in a liquor store. I am assuming that means the restaurant is paying no more than $10.00 for the bottle. That is a 550% markup. I would certainly go to Camille's more often if this were not the case. It's a little insulting.

    I had a gc for Camille's and decided to use it to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We used the valet. We were early, but had reservations. We sat at the bar to have a cocktail until it was time to be seated. The host brought us to our table towards the back, a table slightly enclosed by curtains. The host pulled out my chair and placed a napkin on my lap. My husband and I ordered calamari, which was fabulous. If you are sharing it, they will separate it on plates for you. My husband ordered veal and pasta and had enough to bring home for lunch that next day. I ordered the seared sea scallops with spinach. Both meals were delicious! They gave us a piece of cake with a candle for our anniversary!

    Complimentary valet service (leave at least a $5, dont be cheap) welcomes you to the best food I've had in RI, presented by very knowledgeable and professional servers. We let our waiter choose starters and he did not disappoint! Everyone got their own plate with a little taste of all the appetizers. Wine list was same size as dinner menu...5 leather-bound pages. Our server was very comfortable with the wine list, but when George the manager came by he was able to tell us a little about almost every bottle on the list. Saw the 2014 wine spectator award hanging on the way out. We all ordered specials for entrées and a house-made ricotta cheesecake with espressos to finish. I have nothing but great things to say about the evening.

    Haven't been for 15 years. This place has really gone downhill. Ambience is still old school but it's tired. My lady ordered a dirty martini and had to send back. Calamari was excellent. My special, the veal chop was small and way overcooked. Her veal Marsala was ok and they brought her the wrong pasta and never asked me what kind I wanted. Gravy was sauce. No taste. To much competition to ever try again. Pretty much empty on a Thursday night.

    Camille's would make the late Camille proud. Took girl friends here when i was at Brown '53. Miss the Clams Posillipo although our fine waiter, London, said they served a similar dish (little necks, olive oil and garlic, perhaps a splash of Grecco de tufo was the original dish over al dente spaghetti!). The Baratta (sp?) was simply fab! Great evening.
