Campo - Mammoth
We had two excellent meals at Campo this week. Service and food was exceptional. We like the changes they have appeared to have made.
It's been a few years since we've eaten at Campo. The atmosphere and location are still great. And we had a new server (Marissa), who was lovely. The food though , was just not good....at all. We ordered a prosciutto pizza, that was cold when we got it. The cheese was like rubber. We also ordered the simple salad, that was so fresh that it had dirt in it; crunching in our teeth as we ate it. We won't be back.
I came here because it has a really good review. The food here is average. Our waiter was great, very personable and attentive. One of our dinners was undercook, by the time that they fixed it everyone at the table has finished their food. That was a little disappointing. I would give it a better rating if that was not the problem. Overall, I would give this restaurant a second chance the next time we are in town.
We loved the Grande charcuterie board! So many different delicious and unique items on the board with an excellent selection and quantity of cheeses and meats. Great starter for our ravenous party of 4. Cocktails and wine were also excellent, as were our entrees. Our server was friendly and prompt, and the location in the village is nice, but parking can be a challenge.
The food was ok ran out of what we wanted. My sons pizza was burnt sent it back only to get a second one that was overdone as well. The waiter said sorry “the best it’s going to be’”.
Food was delicious and service was quick.
I always love Campo. It’s definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Mammoth. I love their Negronis. And their pizzas are delicious. I love the crust.
The night we dined at Campo, I guess one of their servers called out. It appeared that only one server was on duty with the manager pitching in to help. As a result, we waited a long time to be greeted by him. The food was mediocre at best. One of my chicken breast pieces was burned and picata sauce was nothing like what I've had at any other Italian restaurant. Spend your hard earned money elsewhere
I have eaten at Campo in Reno and Mammoth. The pasta was dry and barely warm. We had 3 types and none was up to your usual standard. Shoulder season??? It was also my 70th birthday, so for a special occasion, disappointing. We had a baby with us so no tome for dessert.
Very limited menu. Prices are expensive compared to the quality of the food. We wished we had dined somewhere else.
Requested marinanra ,10 min later the waiter came back saying it would be $2 extra, then never brought the marinara. Then another waiter was asked to move the caonpy so the sun would be out of eyes, he slammed it down saying this is the best it's going to get, rudely
Chef is a bit too creative...standards like veal picatta made with tomatos? Osso Buco sauce ultra thick & heavy.
Not refined offerings.
It was amazing service and food
I go to campo several times a year, usually during ski season. Unlike most Mammoth restaurants, it’s usually reliably decent, albeit a tad expensive for what it is. This time the food was okay, but the service was very slow. The host wasn’t very friendly and told us we couldn’t have a table in the quiet area (we were outside with the dogs and wanted them out of the sound path of the concert in the village) because it was being used...it never was. Took them about 30 minutes to bring the water to the table...we probably would have waited just as long for our drinks had I not brought my own bottle of wine. Just generally disappointed this time.
Matt the manager was extremely professional and very accommodating! Great experience!
Friends cycling trip dinner.
Great food and service. Each of us were happy with our dinner. From pasta to halibut and pizza. Loved it all.0
While we have always enjoyed Campo, this last visit was terribly disappointing. My husband's meatballs were barely edible, my caprese pizza was more like an excuse for a pizza: not enough cheese, only two slices of tomatoes for an 8 slice pizza and some shredded basil on top. That being said, the kids loved their beesting pizzas. the server was the most delightful part of our visit; Danila was friendly, helpful and caring. We will try Campo another time to see if this was a one-off experience, but it certainly felt like it had fallen far away from its previously high standards.
It’s a shame, that this restaurant isn’t as good as it used to be. The last couple times we’ve been food and service were lacking. The location is perfect, but it needs some serious overhauling in the customer service side.
Campo pizza was great!! We also ordered the Tagliatelle. Flavor was good but the pasta was too undercooked for our preference.
My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised with our visit to Campo. Our cauliflower appetizer was so yummy. I don't believe I've had cauliflower that I have enjoyed more! We followed that with the beet salad that also was very good and also very pleasing to the eye. We both enjoyed a pasta dish for our main course. I had the meatballs with a gluten free noodle which was the best gluten free noodle I've had. Overall, we really enjoyed our visit to Campo and believe it to be one of the best restaurants in Mammoth!
Disappointing. First, had a reservation at 7pm. Restaurant was about 3/4 full, so the hostess told us to wait. So we waited about 5 minutes (not bad) then she said "we only have a high top table". We took it although with a reservation we thought we might get a little more leeway. Whatever we got sat and proceeded to wait ten minutes before being greeted. They did not appear to be understaffed but whatever, maybe they operate on "Mammoth" time. Finally we were greeted with "Ok, you all ready to order?". No offer of appetizer, drink order, special just let's get this done. So we ordered (three adults and two kids). While waited for food, we noticed some had bread and some didn't. We grabbed someone passing by and said, "Can we get some bread?". We did get bread but had to ask seperately (a busboy) for parmesan. Food came out, I had the Chicken Piccata ($34.99). For that price, it was truly underwhelming. Wife had garlic shrimp pasta which was decent but not for $25.99. Kids had pasta bolenase (meat sauce) for $16.99. Kids complained it was not great due to the noodles being undercooked. Probably the most bothersome part of the visit is the staff seemed uninterested in service. Too bad, with the best spot in the village. Probably relying on their winter crowds I suspect. Wont be back. Gomez across the walkway, 1,000 times better, better priced, and the people serving you are super friendly.
We were hoping for fine dining ambiance but it’s a family style place. We just got a wrong referral from our hotel
Everything was great except our chicken piccata. Pizza was amazing. Salad was amazing and then the chicken piccata came out and was stunned. It was an oily over cooked small portion of bone dry chicken. But we waited for 1 hour for it so we just ate it anyways because we were so starving. And for 34 dollars. Shocker the kitchen would send that out. I should have taken a photo.
Great atmosphere and food, but the restaurant lost our reservation so they ended up sticking us in the back corner behind a giant pillar where were blocked from most of the dining room. Lost reservations happen and it's understandable, however it felt like we were being punished because of Campo's mistake. We ended up waiting about 15 mins before any staff member even acknowledged us, and over the course of the next hour the waitress stopped by our table only twice. Campo is a really cool place, but it was very disappointing to essentially be discarded and ignored for something we had nothing to do with.
Campo was the perfect mix of comfort food and modern trends. The tagliatelle with wild boar was complex and delicious, the kale salad with duck egg was fresh and lemony, and the prosciutto pizza was perfectly cooked. The only change I would make is to substitute bologna on the Grande Tasting board for something less fatty -- the aged cheeses and briny vegetables were perfect together. I will come back every time I'm in Mammoth!
Enjoyed the whole experience!
There aren't a lot of dining options in Mammoth so I understood that this was not going to be a great meal, but the reason it was so poor was the food. For myself, I ordered the bucatini and it was pretty bad. The only flavor it had was overwhelming garlic. I like garlic, but truly there was no other flavor, no nuance whatsoever. The pasta itself was gummy which maybe could have been overlooked if the taste wasn't so poor. I also tasted a friend's cauliflower appetizer and again, the overwhelming flavor was garlic. The atmosphere was pretty decent and the staff were all nice and friendly, so no complaints there. But I have to wonder, does the chef actually ever taste the food?
Had another great meal at Campo with my family. One our favorite restaurants in Mammoth. Pleased that the menu maintains its high standards of creativity and kitchen continues to deliver. Will definitely be back!
Delicious Italian food in the heart of the Village. The Neopolitan style pizzas were a particular stand-out.
It was good not great but way over priced. Pizza was great!
If you’d like Burned pizza, (manager said that no, it’s not burned..called it leopard spots..guess I’ve never seen an all black leopard), freezer burned over cooked fries (kids meal), wine served in water glasses, pasta from a can and a Manager who could care less...then I guess eat at Campo.
This place sucks.
It was at one time maybe a year or two ago our go-to place but it’s just sad how pathetic it has become. Our server was nice and friendly and actually agreed the food looked bad. Obviously management needs to care for anything to change. Seems the location is just too good but we Are disappointed particularly because it WAS a great place.
Terrible cold food
I'm a bit embarrassed. Campo's tenure started fairly well, but continues to deteriorate. An anchor spot in the village with a fairly easy-to-please cuisine should proceed from strength to strength, but my impressions of Monday's dinner:
Dirty menus, they've removed some of the items, grilled lettuce "salad" was a joke, waiter was clueless, high-table chairs were uncomfortable, the floor was dirty, ambiance was tired-yet-loud, and the food was mediocre at best. I brought out-of-town guests to Campo and it was the lowlight of their trip. Even the pizza (previously the best in town) was a yawn.
Pick it up, team! Have some pride!
We had a party of 12 one being a high chair. Service was fine but the food was very bland and cold. The only plate that anyone enjoyed was the Oso Buco
Wow. Never had such bad food cost so much money. First of all they didn’t have half the things on the menu. They were “out”. Then suddenly they were back on menu after ordering. The food came out cold. Pizza was too cold. Burger was supposed to be medium well. It was medium rare. There were so many things that went wrong it’s not worth the space here. The one reason we went here was because they take reservations and they have a kids menu. I was probably better off ordering from the kids menu. They’re meal was warm. They did take the cold pizza off menu and comped dessert but I can not recommend this restaurant. I know it was a busy night but there is no excuse.
Overall really the only good restaurant in the village area that we ate at during our recent vacation.
Whitebark - truly awful and horrifying prices
Kitchen 54 - ok but the menu has changed and is not really inspiring
Nevado - gone downhill for some reason. Food is not just as good as it used to be
Campo - interesting menu / well prepared food / good service / good cocktails - right kind of atmosphere
We go to Campo every time we come to Mammoth and we are always happy with everything. The food is great, the service is excellent and the place is just fun to hang out at.
That night the service was horrible (slow and rude waiters), and the food was mediocre.
Campo was recommended to us by our host in Mammoth. We ordered the Red Wine Tagliatelle with wild boar bolognese. It was very forgettable... bordering on inedible. It didn't even look appealing when it was served.
Even though we were both hungry from a day of skiing and it sounded like just the dish for a cold night, neither of us finished it.
Perhaps the pizza is better...but give the pasta a miss.
Always the best. Love the pizza.
