Campo - Reno is a Rustic Italian Restaurant. We have relaxed but attentive service. We change the menu daily. We serve local and organic foods. We serve Naples style Pizza, we cure our own salami and make all our pasta in house. Our beverage program is as fresh and seasonal as our menu. We have a fun and affordable wine menu and by the glass program. Campo runs many promotions, so please check our website www.camporeno.com to see what may be going on right now. Our patio is right on the Truckee River in downtown Reno. We bake all our breads in the wood oven and the 2 open kitchens are the focal point of the restaurant. Loosely translated Campo means gathering place. we welcome you to come on down and make yourself comfortable.

Our first visit was a pleasure. It was very easy to make a reservation online, which they confirmed with a phone call - very reassuring! The room has an open feel yet the booths feel private, aided by the lighting, which is impressively unobtrusive. The choice and volume of music in the restaurant is a bit incongruous, perhaps more suited to a strictly younger crowd, but once accepted (or ignored) it does not detract from the overall experience. We were made to feel welcome by the well-trained and friendly staff, and our service was first-rate. The portions were of a good size, not huge, but plenty of food for any reasonable diner.

Very good restaurant! Food is interesting and authentic. It is noisy, but but has a really good vibe.
My husband and I go to the movie across the street and then after, head on over to Campo for a glass of wine and some great pasta.
Have to make a reservation, of course! They turn people away by the dozens.
Love that I can go on Open Table and set it all up ahead of time...

I can't ask for a better and more enjoyable dining experience every time I go to Campo. The folks who own and run this place should be especially proud. Your food is excellent, competitively priced, and the GM is a super fella. Truly had a wonderful time at this establishment again. Will be back!

We had a group of 6 and had enough room at our table for appetizers, drinks, and our main courses. Two people in our group had pasta and raved about the flavors and quality of the noodles. I had the poultry nightly special and it was tender and juicy; two other friends had the pizza from the wood fire oven and loved it! And lastly, my friend had the pork special and was able to take half of it home and have it for lunch the next day. Great food and service!

We took advantage of Campos' Thursday "Date Night" special. It's a fix priced 4 four course meal for both people for $60, or for $75 you get 3 wine pairings too. The meal was great...vibrant and flavorful courses, generous portions and every wines that really complimented the food. The service was outstanding (thank you Sam!). We really enjoyed ourselves for nearly 2 hours and were able to leave a nice tip and walk away for a $100 for the evening. Wonderful date night indeed. Highly recommended.

Reservation definitely recommended. I liked the convenience if making the reservation on line. The restaurant was fairly crowded for a Wednesday night but out table was ready at exactly when we walked in. Food is excellent and they have some unique choices.

requested special seating we were approached by a shabbily dressed hostess with average looks....anyway....i was surprised when we were seated at a pub table by a window...i looked around the room and noticed a regular table with a view that was more desirable....we were approached by our server...very friendly and we placed our drink order in which he returned promptly....enjoyed the appetizer and pizza however the spaghetti al dente was not prepared well...i ordered it with meatballs which were awesome...the al dente was rigid and too crisp....reminded me of a reheated pasta....i would tell my friends and family that it is a ok place to grab a bite for a dining experience ...i would refer them somewhere else....we expected something more

I knew better, but ordered the sirloin instead of pasta. It was cold, tough and bland. Pasta was, as always, very good. Server was professional, but manager standing next to our booth chatting with our server was not.

Food was very average to poor. All salads ordered were saturated with oil and limp. Pasta not flavorless. Nothing memorable. Maybe they changed chefs because the last time we dined there it was above average. Very sad. Beautiful location though.

Campo is a wonderful place to go in Reno. It has a great location off the "strip" and right on the Truckee River. The food is great. I have been a few times now and have eaten both outside in the summer and inside in the fall/winter. My husband loves the spaghetti and meatballs, the seafood fettuccine is amazing and the pizza gets high regards. The service is good, we have always had local young people serving us; I think it is unique that they give you the bill in a book. The owner, Mark does a great job. I highly recommend making a reservation and enjoying this wonderful side to Reno, I am sure you will be impressed!

I have been to Campo several time but only for dinner. I have always been pleasantly surprised by their menu and always satisfied with the available choices. I have not a less than excellent experience there. However, I had never eaten at Campo for lunch. This too was like all of my previous experiences.

Bravo Campo, keep up the great work, I will be back and as with this lunch meeting will bring clients and colleagues back.

Having just moved here from Denver we were very happy to find a restaurant that focuses on local produce. Of course simply finding the food is not as important as preparing it. The food was excellent and the service was excellent. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, walking that fine line between modern and obnoxious. We are looking forward to warm weather so we can enjoy what promises to be a great patio. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience.

The scallops were unevenly cooked and small. This is our favorite dish, and I was a bit disappointed. Chef Ramsey would point out the obviously uneven browning. Pesto was too overpowering and I don't recall having that the time before (pesto on them at all). The tripe is very good.Caramel budino is delicious. Mmmmm

I am not sure how to describe the menu at Campo. We loved the place but there were only 4 items on the menu that we would even consider. So, I guess we aren't 'foodies' or gourmet lovers. We would go back if friends wanted to go but not on our own.

I was in Reno on business and came across what looked like a casual restaurant/bar downtown. Upon looking at the menu, I was pleasantly surprised to see a tasting menu that, after speaking with the waitress, I decided to order. From beginning to end, it was perfect. The meal began with the chef himself emerging to shake my hand and explain the various courses. The meal began with the chef's "mosaic," a sampling of various items from the menu. I am not normally a huge vegetable person, but I could have eaten the various greens in this course for days. Best vegetable prep I've ever had.

The mean continued with many varied, but consistently high-quality, courses. Each continued to be introduced by the chef.

Just wonderful.

The food was really quite good, but the service was disappointing. Our waitress disappeared for long stretches of time. When we had finished our entrees, we waited for almost a half hour before the dessert menu was offered. We were fine with a leisurely paced experience, but this seemed excessive. The restaurant did not appear to be overly busy to the point such slow service might be more understandable.

I took my 5 of my friends and family this last Tuesday night to Campo for the first time to celebrate my birthday. Even with a 6:30 reservation, there wasn't a lot of choice for a larger table. The place was lively and noisy for a Tuesday. The staff was friendly and pretty helpful, but our waiter didn't go way out of his way; had to ask to order apps, ask for more bread and never got more ice water even though 2 of our party were only having water. The food was delicious! My birthday drink, the Handlebar (a Manhattan) was terrific! Everything flowed nicely and I even got a nice birthday dessert but no song. Overall, it was great. I will be back and look forward to sitting on the patio.

This is our second time to Campo. The service was exceptional. The dessert was FABULOUS (caramel budino), the food was not good. Both times we have eaten at Campo, we have not cared at all for the appetizer/salad, or the entree. The dessert is amazing and we would definitely go there just for dessert again. We had a fabulous waitress. The food is just not great. They mix too many flavors and it ends up being unappetizing. Great atmosphere, great drinks, mediocre food. Not enough for us to come back again. Disappointed because our guests we brought had read such amazing reviews and they didn't like their food either. We ordered lamb special, seafood fettucine (came out barely warm), and the pork trio.
