    We have always enjoyed the food and service here. The Calamari steaks are excellent, with just the right amount of capers. The veal saltimbocca has always been good here, but a minor change to the recipe on this visit made it some of the best in years. Service is always friendly and relaxed, yet knowledgeable. Keep up the great standards.

    i took my friend to lunch here and we were both so pleased with our time there. Our waiter was attentive without being annoying. The food was wonderful! My friend got the seafood crepe and this is the first time in many years of lunching that she actually ate all her food! The salad I ordered with the blackened fish was amazing. First time I ever got a generous piece of fish that was cooked perfectly! I would highly recommend this place!

    3 of us had dinner there last Saturday evening, were seated promptly. We had a variety of dishes, and enjoyed them all very much. It was a busy time, to be sure, but we were definitely dismayed at the pace of the 3 servers, and their inability to engage with the customers. There was little in the way of pleasantries, certainly no option for discussion of the menu options. Even as the evening brought a slower pace the young lady providing our service was too hurried to notice that she had taken knives and forks away with the appetizer plates, and we ultimately had to ask for replacements to eat our entrees. A fourth server may or may not have made a positive difference. Thankfully the food was excellent start to finish.

    Food was decent, but felt thing were disordered. Seated without menus, bread came late, order not taken until after appetizer had been eaten. Our waiter seemed to be covering too many customers. He was quite pleasant.

    Didn't know this restaurant existed until i visited OpenTable to make a reservation to a different restaurant. We were in the mood for Italian food and were very pleased we found Campobello's. If you want a quiet, enjoyable evening with that special someone - Campobello's offers that experience. Will be back !

    We celebrated a birthday here with tender calamari steaks and flavorful seafood crepes. The amounts were good and the presentation was pleasing to the eye. The service was good although a little on the sassier side than we were in the mood for, but how is one to know. I have been here many times for lunch but this was our first time having dinner here. I prefer the professional attitude of lunch time. We were both pleased with our dinner and it made for a festive birthday celebration.

    The food was quite good. The service was fairly mediocre. Nothing took too long to arrive at our table but the server was not very attentive and the restaurant was not busy that evening. If I were in the neighborhood I would certainly give them another shot but I would not go out of my way to go back.

    I had a business lunch. We both had the mediterranean salad with chicken for lunch. The chicken was cooked to perfection. The rest of the salad was the perfect mix! The waiter was very attentive yet barely noticable. A very nice experience. I'll dine here more often!

    My last visit, however, was a disappointment. It felt as though our server didn't know we existed (a colleague was unable to eat at all because we ran out of time) and the food was over cooked.

    Usually when I eat here, I order one of the veal dishes, as they are always very tender & flavorful. But last night , they had a fresh halibut special with a sherry wine cream sauce, which was mouthwatering lay delicious. Paired with au gratin potatoes, & diced beets, it was a great meal.

    Some restaurants have the makings for a great meal ... once you let the flavors marry overnight in your fridge. I prefer that complex and fully-developed flavor when I sit down the first time. Campobello Bistro has had that "cooking all day" flavor every time we visit. This is a consistent, predictable restaurant with fresh ingredients and great service. Seafood crepes didn't disappoint. The service was attentive. Ambience was peaceful but not pretentious.

  • Ordered the Calamari dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 3/11/2014
    Ordered the Calamari dinner meal, which was delicious but very small portions for the price of the meal (4-5 thin slices). I wanted the Halibut Rossini but they weren't serving it and when a substitution for Cod was offered there was a problem and the meal was unavailable, which is too bad because it appeared to be the best meal in my opinion. Halibut, shrimp and scallops in a three cheese sauce with potato and veggie. I know it's an Italian/French/Mediterranean cuisine but I am not into pasta at the moment and this seemed like the ideal meal, but it is apparently a seasonal dish so I respect that and I will probably go back to see about trying to get that meal again. Otherwise the staff was funny and great service. Expensive but worth it.

    I'm not sure if this will be helpful to others, but I've just got to say that I love Campobello. It's always been superb. Food's fabulous. Service is excellent. Suggestions? The seafood crepe is one of my favorites - lunch or dinner. Calimari is great as either an appetizer or main dish. tried the stuffed mushrooms this time for appetizer - delicious. It's my favorite Anchorage restaurant. I know you'd enjoy it, too.

    By value, I mean quality! This place was way more than I expected. The food was excellent, wine was great, and the staff were on top of things and very friendly. The menu itself wasn't complicated and I felt like anything would of been delicious. The ambiance was perfect for Valentines Day and I felt like they didn't over crowd the place with tables knowing it was a big dining holiday. This allowed for a more intimant dining experience with my wife. I went with the duck a' la' orange and she had the lamb chops. Both were cooked perfectly and soooo delicious! The tiramisu was incredible and a great way to cap off this excellent dining experience!

    I have been here three times with my fiance. We actually had the same server all three times. The first time we went was just a random stop using the OpenTable app to see what was out there food-wise in the neighborhood. We were not disappointed at all. She had the "Duck A'La Orange" (which I got a taste of) and i had the "Seafood fra Diavlo" Both were fantastic. The second and third time we went, they had pre-fixe menus for the holidays. On New Years eve, we had the lamb and Grilled Proscuitto Shrimp. On Valentine's day we had more lamb and Filet Mingnon Hunter. Everything was done correctly and presented well. We will go back again.

    Service and ambience was great. The calamari was amazing, as always. My halibut was a bit of a disappointment-overbooked and rather fishy. Probably not a great choice this time of year. My partners pasta was, to quote him, "fine". Not bad, but not wonderful. I would come here again but would try a different entree.
