Italian
It’s a dichotomy.” Chef Craig Harding sums up Campagnolo, the restaurant that he and his fiancée, Alexandra Hutchison, own and operate on Dundas Street in Toronto’s west end. Inspired by traditional homemade Italian food, and charged with a fresh and modern energy, Campagnolo blends new and old to create something that is better than either.

From the time we finished our apps to getting our main it took over an hour. We ordered two apps and two pastas. I’ve eaten there 5 times and this time was the worst. Kitchen was so slow.

I enjoyed our service and the ambiance at Campagnolo but it fell short in the food department for me. I am a huge fan of the overall experience at La Palma and was expecting the same level of flavours to come through in the dishes at Campagnolo (their sister restaurant). The cocktails were delicious though!

Nice sort of formal setting, a bit too dark, and noisy when it fills up which it did. Our waiter was witty, professional and relaxed adding to the overall pleasant experience. The menu is limited and wine list very limited and rather pricey. What will get us back is the FOOD. The apps, mains, and dessert were right up there with the best fine dining Italian restaurants in Toronto.

Cozy little restaurant! Definitely a must try. Our service was great, ambiance was on point, not too loud and the music was at the right volume.
Food was delicious. Everything I expected! Highly recommend getting the in-house made bread and olives. It was a great way to start the meal. The mushroom crepe we had as a starter was amazing and the cavatelli pasta emtree was just right. Overall, I definitely would recommend this restaurant!

Appetizers of bone marrow and burrata were fantastic. The spaghetti that they’re known for is “ok”. Unfortunately it’s been hyped up so much I was expecting something way better. My friends tortellini pasta was crunchy. Not sure whether it’s supposed to be that way. Would have been more enjoyable if it had been al dente. Server was a little startled when we sent our pastas back because they weren’t even room temperature. She was telling my friend that the tortellini is never really hot? I didn’t care whether they microwaved it but I like my pasta hot and fresh. They corrected this in the end. In all, it was a very expensive meal that really wasn’t worth the money. Because of the ambiance id probably go back and have one of the appetizers and a salad to share.

Such a great restaurant. The food is authentic and the level of skill behind each dish is fantastic. Their level of service is top notch. Their staff checked in on us and gave some great recommendations for dishes and cocktails.

I'd definitely go back and would be a regular if I was in the neighborhood more often.

Horrible. Don’t go. So many problems. Didn’t even get to eat but got charged $60. Food was disgusting and odd menu. Did not work for any of us. And got bill even after sending it back. Covered in oil and disgusting amount of garlic. My bread was swimming in crap. Chef did not accommodate us either or take our complaint. Save your money and mouth.

Limited menu but the food is delicious. Husband had the bone marrow and said it was outstanding. I had a burata which was very good but it was on top of a really oily piece of salty bread, that didn't taste as great. The spaghetti as our main was delicious, the pasta noodles tasted homemade and the sauce was really excellent. The interesting carrot cake was also really good shared with two folks! Very noisy restaurant, difficult to have a conversation but it was very busy with a lot of locals. It would be fun with a group.

Food has fallen off dramatically since opening. The portions are small and, given limited menu, I was surprised to find bones in my Rabbit gnocchi. Wine list was limited and didn’t have bulk of selections we chose. Overall disappointing.

We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and seated right away. Our server took our drink orders and got them to the table in a timely manner.
We had heard many good things about the pasta, so we all order the spaghetti, two meat sauce and one not. The Chef made a sauce that was a perfect combo of spice and tomato. My preference is allowing the tomatoes stand out and this sauce definitely did that.
Our starter of the burrata with sourdough and focaccia tasted both creamy and crunchy in our mouth. A real taste treat!
As it was my daughters Birthday I had taken her favorite cake and they allowed us to enjoy it for a plate fee.
I would recommend Campagnolo to friends because the food was wonderful, the ambiance was comfy and the staff was very friendly and attentive.

Very small menu, ordered most popular dish (pasta) and it was very hard to eat even a third of it as all it tasted like was pork and garlic which was very odd for a marinara spaghetti. My husband is not a picky eater and even he didn’t enjoy it. The pasta was al dente but to the point where you could barely chew it. The server asked how we enjoyed our meals, only when we were ready for our bill. I stated I didn’t like it and didn’t know there was pork in it and no discount was taken off the bill at all.

We got there 15 minutes before opening but they welcomed us in as if we were there ontime for our 6:00 pm reservation. I ordered the gnocchi with chicken confit which was quite good. The chicken was crunchy - had been dehydrated and the texture and taste was unusually good. Mild red sauce (my stomach thanked them). My wife asked for plain homemade spaghetti with olive oil and pepper (not on the menu that night). The server (Jeff) was accomodating to her request and the execution of the dish by the chef was superb. Make sure to order the fresh bread. Outstanding. The only downside to the meal was the charred Gem lettuce. Charring provides a smokey flavor without significantly burning the ingredient. The “char” was way more than flavor enhancing. Needs some work. But, minor compared to the overall excellent meal. Real pros and real people serving high quality dishes. What could be better?

I would post photos but there is no evidence, we couldn't stop eating once we started! The burrata appetizer was outstanding. Next time I will just ask them to double it and eat it as my main. The pickled veg was equality delicious (but doubling that would be a bit much). Their bread is also such a beautiful treat. The cocktails were lovely as well; I had the Lady Grey and it was perfect. The best part was that it was kid friendly, which helps. Overall I would recommend this place. This was my third visit made up for my second visit, which was lack luster. The staff was helpful and accommodating and the washrooms were clean (this means a lot).

I was not expecting a happy hour environment from the pictures of the restaurant. Italian name, candles on the table, tables for couples by the window, everything appeared to be nice until we arrived and found lounge music and loud conversation all around, just like any other happy hour place. Food was ok, nothing special, people were really nice though. I would recommend for happy hour but not for a special night out.

I cant believe you would charge me $5 for a few slices of bread, really..I had the spaghettii a la amatriciana and was disappointed. I am from Rome and know what this is supposed to taste like..where was the pepper and guanciale???? The polenta appetizer was better than the spaghetti..I won't even be able to watch you on TV anymore, what a shame.
