One of the better choices
One of the better choices for a good dish of pasta. We start with a tri colore salad followed by one of our favorites chosen from the following: Bolognaise, Seafood, Marinara, Rigatoni with Sausage or Lamb Ragu. Each is delicious, cooked to perfection and served very hot. Add good bread (flat and pizza dough) accompanied by a tapinade. Service is always caring. The owner is on the job daily.

Pasta & Ravioli's were superb. Service was good, with the owner on top of everything. Deducted one point as there is some construction going on now (new bar being built in first room), but that did not impact upon the dining area.

When I rate this restaurant
When I rate this restaurant "Oustanding"......remember we eat here regularly. R children and grandchildren love the pasta and we do too. I get the bread crisp & lavoche is also excellent with tapinade. Rarely order items other than pasta (sauce flavor, pasta....cooked to perfection and hot, ...... all excelent). The grandchildren top it off it with Tortufo....a big hit.. Last night one member of our party ordered broiled salmon which she said was very good. Marco, Claudio, Julio all strive to deliver good service. We were nine persons....the restaurant was close to full and service was good. Carlo, owner, goes out of his way to assure the comfort of his clientele.

Good food and service
We tried their fesh pasta dish. It the meal was very good. Not the best Italian food we've had in LA but above average.

Took some friends to the Restaurant
Took some friends to the Restaurant and we all had a lovely meal. Some work going on inside, causing the interior now to have its causal, friendly atmosphere, but that is temporary. Good crowd, good food. Will return.

GREAT food and service
5-10-13 French doors open onto a lovely patio, table cloths and cloth napkins all made for a delightful atmosphere. The service was friendly and helpful. The food was great. The general feel was elegant but not stuffy.

Booked this for our daughter's law school graduation dinner. Very accommodating for a group of 13. Food was fabulous. Wait staff was very sweet and on top of it. I think our group was probably a little noisy because of the size but it is normally not too noisy
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent food,simply prepared.
Excellent food,simply prepared. Friendly,personable waiter whose recommendations all were great choices. Nothing distinctive about the decor but we appreciated being able to converse in the relatively quiet setting. Bar area was undergoing renovation so atmosphere/noise level might change. We already are making plans to return.
5/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
The positive are left for exploration, but I have some reservations about the Campagnola and the Pasta with Seafood. The salad was too plain for the liking, and the pasta with seafood just doesn't work out. The flavour of the pasta was slaughtered by the seafood taste.

If you like homemade pasta...
This is the place for you if you like homemade pasta. Just like nonna used to make. You can even create your own dish by pairing your favorite pasta with your favorite sauce. Or, go with the lasagna, which is one of the best lasagnas I've ever tasted. They also have a nice wine list, and are more than happy to let you sample a few before you decide on just the right bottle.

Excellent range of pasta
R favorite for a casual dinner with great pasta and caring service.

good for a casual week night dinne
Campagnolia Trattoria is a very good restaurant for a casual evening out in Westwood. My wife is on the faculty at UCLA, and when she finishes up at rush hour during, it's easy for me to drive up from the South Bay for dinner; then we can drive back to the South Bay after rush hour subsides. We've had the Caesar and endive salads and veal and pasta dishes - all good. The wines-by-the-glass selection is also good with emphasis on California and Italian wines.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great bet in Westwood for a good Italian restaurant with a full bar. Wonderful pasta selections.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is consistently great
Food is consistently great and the service is always excellent!
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Frequent the restaurant once a week and always delighted to write a review. You won't go wrong if you order Pasta and a tri-colore salad. The soups are usually excellent also. Flavio, Marco and Julio provide good service and Carlo, the owner, is a genial host.
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Some of best Italian food I have ever had. Ambiance nothing to write home about. Service excellent but, you go here for the food.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM

Love this Restaurant.
I can always count on Campagnola Trattoria for a nice dining experience. The service is lovely, the food is delicious, the restaurant is comfortable.

ENJOY IT AGAIN AND AGAIN
We dine every time after attending the Geffen Playhouse matinee and enjoy it immensely. Carlo works very hard to make us feel like welcome and appreciated. Can't wait to return.

Campaigning for Campagnola
Great meal. Fresh food,simply prepared with distinctive tastes. Friendly service. Comfortable surroundings,quiet enough to easily carry on a conversation. My second time there and definitely will be returning.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
With an owner from Sardinia, Italy who is there most nights how could it be anything but authentic. Excellent selection of pastas and main courses, strong wine list, and an expanded bar just opening. This is a mid-range restaurant that is not a destination spot, but a great place for a relaxed meal.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
a nice surprise
Quiet with a very entertaining, professional waiter. This is not one of those slick yuppie type restaurants. I highly recommend it.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Pasta
You won't go wrong with their wide range of pasta dishes including Seafood, Bolognaise, Lamb Ragu, Sausage ++++good bread with olive tapinade. The pasta sauces and al dente prepartion make for a winner.. Full bar, good service, Genial owner, Carlo.
7/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
Wonderful food and lots of fun
We had a terrific dinner at Campagnola Trattoria. Seven of us were celebrating together and we all enjoyed the food, the service and the overall energy. We all had great meals! We'll definitely be back soon.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great time with Carlo at Campagnola
Lasagna, wine, great service and Carlo the owner make this place a great spot for authentic Italian. Makes you want to go to Italy immediately. Very welcoming atmosphere; all staff are friendly; the owner greets you at the door, then they'll tell you what to order if you're in doubt. Always order one of the specials to go with one of the pasta dishes and you'll have no room for dessert, even though the chocolate flour-free cake sounded pretty good.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our most frequented restaurant!
We like the pasta here more than any other Italian restaurant we have tried. My wife enjoyes the Capellini Marinara and I rotate between many of the other choices including Rigatoni with Lamb Ragu, Bolognaise, Seafood, and Linguini with Sausage. The service is good and caring.....the owner works very hard to ensure the comfort of his clientele.....the ambiance pleasant....a bit on the noisy side when fully occupied. Try the Tri Colore Salad, ask them to crispen the pizza dough bread and sit back and enjoy a good dinner that is not overly expensive by today's standards.
8/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
The food was good, the menu extensive and the service outstanding, so why is this place so empty? It's a mystery, but our experience was very favorable. I will return when I want a place that's good for talking with a friend that you want to hear across the table, but those who like a place to ``buzz" may find this restaurant way too quiet and lacking a fun vibe.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Favorite of Ours
When you frequent a restaurant on a continuing basis you choose your favorite dishes and stick to them. We have never gone wrong with a pasta nor the tri-colore salad. We ask the waiter to crispen the Pizza dough bread and the lavoche is great along with the olive tapinade. Even our grandchildren love the food (pizza or pasta) and tortufo for dessert. Service....we love Claudio (actually a waiter from Italy!!!!) and host Carlo cares about his clientele. Don't think you will go wrong if you stick to the items we enjoy......in fact we think they serve some of the best pasta in the City. A full bar too for those who like a cocktail and a HappyHour at a newly installed and handsome bar.
8/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
Landmark Theater plus A Great Dinne
When you are going to the Landmark to enjoy a movie, why not try Campagnola for wonderful pasta plus a good salad and delicious lavoche and pizza dough bread. My wife loves the Capellini Marinara and I go for the Bolognaise, Lamb Ragu, Pescatore, Penne with Sausage or ? Don't think you will enjoy a better pasta anywhere in the City. Caring service, genial owner, full bar are all pluses to add to the experience.
8/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
We celebrated our daughter's
We celebrated our daughter's graduation and the staff went out of their way to make us all feel special. We reserved the outside patio, so that was nice to have our own private area. Food was very good. Definitely recommend!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you judge a restaurant by how often you go back this is our winner. We stick to their excellent soups, salad (tri-colore) and pasta and we are seldom dissapointed. Sauces are excellent as is the pasta itself.....cooked to perfection. Atmosphere.......nothing fancy, but pleasant.........so convenient when going to the Landmark or live in the Wilshire Corridor area.
9/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good Italian Resturant
Every dish we ordered was very good. We ordered a salad, pizza, and a pasta dish and they were all good. The pizza had a wonderful crust. We went on Labor day so the traffic getting to Westwood was not bad. Normally during the week we could not go to Westwood due to the heavy traffic. We will certainly go back on a week-end or Holiday.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great date night!
Terrific food, but small portions for the price you pay. We ordered the gnocchi and artichoke tortellini and it was fabulous! Nice little hidden-away gem!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love Campagnola!
A great place to get terrific food -- and wonderful service!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
For a casual dinner with caring service, try Campagnola. If you stick to their pasta dishes, a nice tri-colore salad, delicious bread and tortufo for dessert you will leave a happy camper.
9/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
Italy in West L.A.
If you like well flavored sauces and great pasta I think you will be happy at Campagnola. Stick to those items accompanied by the tri-colore salad....enjoy the bread and tapinade and caring service. Carlo, the owner, is from Sardenia. He has invested his time and talent in creating a casual, well priced option for those residing in West Los Angeles. Full bar enances the restaurant for those who like a cocktail.
9/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
Try any number of their pasta dishes for a winner. Good service, genial host, full bar, and a pleasant staff add to the experience.
9/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
One of the better Italians for excellent pasta......owner cares about his customers and it shows.
10/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
Bolognaise, Seafood, Lamb Ragu and so many more choices. I think you will enjoy the pasta that is cooked to perfection. Service is good, ambiance pleasant, full bar......give it a try.
10/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Very good Italian in Westwood
This is a very good, reasonably-priced Italian restaurant in Westwood. Great place to go when visiting students at UCLA or someone in the hospital at UCLA Medical Center/Reagan Medical Center.
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
We love Campagnola Trattoria!
The service, the food, the ambience -- all are terrific. We love our dinners at Campagnola!

Italian in Westwood
Great Italian food, wonderful attentive service in a quieter atmosphere. Campagna is also part of the KCRW Benefits network.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
a bar has been added...
A very attractive bar has been added. The ambiance was very nice; furniture all tastefully matching the newly installed full bar.
The noise level should be moderated with some absorbant surfaces; tile floors, wooden furniture and beamed ceilings do NOT absorb sound. Table cloths are not enough, in my opinion.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Our Most Frequented Restaurant
We eat here weekly because we love the pasta and tri-colore salad plus the delicious bread which we have crispened and with the tapinade really starts you off well. Good service, a full bar and a caring owner make it a a perfect fit for our needs.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
The owner recommended the balsamic chicken and it was Amazing. Service was great.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
If you enjoy pasta, good bread along with tapinade, a delicious tri-colore salad plus caring service, you should enjoy Campagnola........The owner is there nightly to assure that guests are satisfied......he really cares. Prices are mid-range. My grandchildren love it (tortufo does the trick with them)!!!!!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
For a casual dining experience, if you are in the mood for great pasta, try Campagnola. We frequent the restaurant about once per week for many years and we are never dissapointed if we stick to our favorites including seafood pasta, bolognaise, marinara, lamb ragu, and penne with sausage. Service is good.
