Excellent evening! Everything
Excellent evening! Everything was delectable and we enjoyed each morsel.
A restaurant to go to for a variety of reasons-the food is first and foremost. Then, the ambience and
great outside seating. It is a treat!!

Our server Annie was great
The food was very good and our server was so friendly. It was a pleasant evening out. We will come back.

Food and service were both very good. We dined outdoor and the patio was very lovely. Would recommend for dinner or lunch and the outdoor patio--lovely with white linens.

Unfortunately, I could not
Unfortunately, I could not force myself to try an entree other than the short ribs; they are the only thing I have eaten at Campielo. And, this visit was no different than others in the past as I ate the short ribs, again, and they were fantastic.
My wife can not be called a fish lover, but she raved about the halibut and called it the best halibut she has eaten.
The decor of the dining room appeared a bit tired, but the decor was overshadowed by the excellent food.
Kudos to our waitress, Jen (?), she was excellent.

A Memorable Birthday Lunch
A group of us women at SummerWood in Chanhassen have formed a birthday group. On Tuesday, July 23, we made reservations for lunch. We were seated in a quiet private alcove. Our special person that day was celebrating her 95th birthday. She loved everything about the restaurant we chose. We were impressed with the welcome and service. We will definitely return to your restaurant.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The new menu was lovely. More attention to gluten-free options. This is our #1 place to celebrate a special event.

Was one of MN's nice day so we sat outside and were able to get a table in the shade. However, because of construction, it was noisier than expected. Service was great and food was good. I had the special and thought the chicken penne was only OK. Other people I was with had the pizza and the pear and chicken salad. Both of them commented that their food was delicious. I thought the prices for lunch ($15-$18) was quite high.

Patio dining at its best!
Enjoyed selections from the recently updated menu (tomato/feta appetizer, pork tenderloin entrée) while dining in the walled patio garden area. The best outdoor dining on the west side of town, no parking lot or road noise given the brick garden wall.

Short Ribs Go Long
Campiello's has always been a favorite of ours. The house salad is always very fresh and very light. We typically split one. The wine list is robust and suites any dining choice, budget. We chose the 2011 Alexander Valley Cab which is superb! Despite Michael's (our server) best attempt to steer us away from the short ribs to the flank steak, we stuck with the short ribs. Each bite was met with a tender flavorful explosion! The dark almost syrup like reduction will temp you to lick your plate when finished. It is like the flavor of a bushel of carrots, onions and beef drippings were cooked together in harmony for a week only leaving the bare umami essence. The short ribs are served over a bed of spaghetti with a couple tomatoes in the mix.

GREAT NEW MENU!!!
The new menu was fabulous! Our server Annie was great and she knew her stuff!
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Right by my office so I go there quite a bit, always good.

Still great after all these years
Our group of six had a beautiful corner table waiting for us as we gathered for dinner. Catching up in conversation as one couple has moved to WI, we were greeted by the most friendly wait staff. She was enthusiastic about the food and sensitive to our time to talk, therefore not hovering or intrusive. The service was wonderful as our food was presented before us in a orchestrated manner. We loved that! The food itself was memorable.... and that is why we came to Campiello. The roasted chicken is just moist, tender and flavorful. The new pork tenderloin with risotto cooked to perfection. Other dishes at our table included the penne pasta and asparagus. We enjoyed a glass of wine, fresh bread and butter too.

Visiting from San Diego
I found Campiello on Open Table, cause I was staying in Eden Prairie. The menu looked great, service was great! The only disappointing thing was the mussel appetizer... Mussels were really small, but the flavor of the sauce they used was amazing! I bet it's hard to get quality mussels all the way to Minnesota inland. Overall, great dinner!!!

Great For Business Lunches
We dined with Campiello for a business lunch and for sat outside. It was very nice. I like that the patio feels private and diners can't see Shady Oak Road (and all the construction) from the patio. Food was good. Service was fair. (One guest waited for a beverage for about 10 minutes which was simply an honest mistake.) However, wait staff kept water glass filled and food came out quickly. We were offered dessert or coffee after lunch. I would definitely go back.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great restaurant. Great food and even better service.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I ordered the lunch special which included soup or salad and an entrée. The house salad was good but there was too much dressing and it appeared to have been dressed well in advance of serving which made it soggy and less appealing. The vinaigrette was very tasty though--the right balance of piquance (vinegar) and richness (oil). The penne with chicken and artichoke was a little bland--could have used an herb (sage? rosemary?) to spruce it up. But the profferring of fresh pepper and parmesan is always a nice touch and the bread was good. Next time I'll try ordering a la carte in search of something more inspired.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Campiello is a Winner
Our group of women especially enjoyed the luncheon menu. We enjoyed the spaciousness and the great service!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Who knew there were still
Who knew there were still high quality restaurants without ear splitting music and spun reflecting walls in the world anymore? Consistently great food and looking forward to coming back without needing earplugs.

My wife and I enjoy this restaurant
My wife and I enjoy this restaurant and choose it frequently for special occasions. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and received a complimentary dessert which was fabulous. They know how to treat their customers.

Done Just Right
Went for lunch with my wife. We both had the "lunch special" which consisted of a soup or salad choice plus an entrée for $10.95. The portions are smaller than the dinner menu, naturally, but they were just right for lunch. We each had the house salad, which was perfectly dressed. My wife had the spaghetti and meatball and loved it. I had the penne. It was sauced just right and was cooked absolutely perfectly al dente. In all, we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch in this, our second time at Campiello. After having two excellent experiences, needless to say we will be back here whenever we are in the mood for Italian.

Always outstanding food
I've never had a bad meal here. It's always outstanding. Our most recent meal was outstanding as usual and our waitstaff was great.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service and food
We truly enjoyed our evening and everything was perfect. The pumpkin / sage risotto on the regional menu was out of this world.

Sunday Date Night is the best!
We love the Sunday Date Night special at Campiello. It's a great way to invite friends out and not have to spend too much money. This is one of our favorite restaurants!
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Regional Menu exc service
The duck pizza on the Regional is fantastic...try it! Peter is a top notch chef! Pork chop was good and service excellent. You will not be disappointed at this restaurant!
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always, wonderful.
Campiello continues to surpass my expectations - when I want great food, service, atmosphere, cocktails this is the place!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always enjoy our evenings at Campiello. The servers are friendly and efficient, and the food is delicious. It's the perfect spot for a lovely dinner!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dined here for restaurant week and everything we had was delicious. We had the mussels and meatballs for first course, pork tenderloin and butternut squash ravioli for our main courses. They were all so good, I want more just thinking about it. The portions were good and the restaurant itself was very nice. This was the first time we'd had dinner here and we will defiantly go back. I've eaten at other hot spots in the twin cities and this was just as good, if not better!
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
we went and tried it out during Restaurant Week and the menue was FABULOUS. The service at the bar was excellent, and the server was very good at what she does. THANKS, we will definately be back.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Servers that really care!
Our server was relatively new to wine so when my friend had a question our server went to ask the sommelier! At lunch! She was great.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our group of five ate dinner at Campiello during restaurant week. The entire experience was fantastic, from the wonderful food to the experienced waitstaff. All five of us raved about our food. We had a corner table which was nice since the restaurant was full and got a little loud. All in all, we were thrilled with our meal and are planning to return to try some of the other yummy looking menu offerings!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Date Night don't miss it !
Went on Sunday for the date night special and I don't know how they do it! Steak Tartare, Pasta with Lamb, Pork around sausage, dessert were all excellent! Nice wine too! Service from Jenna personable and great...price unbeleivable. A perfect dinner!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waitress, Nicci, was amazing! She had great suggestions for our food which was delicious! She was extremely friendly and helpful! She treated our 11-year-old daughter and our birthday guest like they were royalty! Thank you!
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM

Top notch service and excellent food. Always a great time!

Fantastic Italian Food
I get tired of going to Italian restaurants sometimes, because they serve this tired idea of what Italian food is. The food at Campiello was very good, it was refined, it was simple, but using great ingredients. I'll definitely go back again.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service is exceptional. Good location for business dinner, date or small gathering.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Better than we expected
We were all from different cities visiting the area for business. A wonderful surprise. Great service and excellent food. Marvelous grilled asparagus among other favorites our group enjoyed.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
A place you may have forgotten…..
Campiello is a warm, wonderful place to dine - inside or out that you may have forgotten to include in your dining inventory. Excellent menu and good wine list. Busy but not overwhelming. Allows for private conversations at your table without difficulty. Great spot to meet for drinks as well. Try it again.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wood roasted chicken was amazing
Wood roasted chicken was amazing (flavor permeated the meat). Other items were very good.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Well be back
Campiello never disappoints. I love that we can enjoy the meal out and carry on a conversation. The noise level is always manageable for my spouse who is hard of hearing.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great restaurant. Consistently good across the board. Has stood the test of time.

86th birthday cekebration
four of us were seated at a table i selected. the wait help allowed time for food selection and told us about the specials for the day. the food was excellent and the birthday dessert was as well. the manager checked to see that everything was satisfactory. overall, a pleasant birthday celebration.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
We started with the gnocchi appetizer... it was amazing! Couldn't have asked for a better start to the meal. I had the spicy lamb ragu pasta dish and it was very good. Nice level of flavor and worked well with the pasta. Service was good when she was there, but not always around. Still overall great!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everyone from maître d to busing staff were friendly and professional. They made it a very pleasant dining experience. The chicken and eggplant parmigiana are our favorite choices.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
never had such excellent service, food was also very good.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious food, impeccable service!
There is always something new on the menu, seasonally and monthly. We are regulars and enjoy exploring new items on the menu. The calamari, beet salad, short ribs and chocolate mousse cake stand out as favorites but you really can't go wrong with anything. Love the deconstructed spicy Caesar salad, too. The recommended wine was great. Our large party of 10 had no complaints. The wait staff was very knowledgeable, attentive and professional, even refolding a napkin if someone left the table. They know how each item is prepared. The entrees were delivered all at the same time with other servers helping. In warm weather, the patio is charming.
