Best piece of salmon I had in Anchorage! Restaurant is in a strip mall, but don’t let that dissuade you.

Although we have not been in a while, food was consistently good and fresh. The service was good and place was clean. Simple decor yet elegant and offered a pleasant and intimate atmosphere. I recommend trying it.

CampoBello is a long-time Anchorage favorite “strip mall bistro.” Great midtown location with ample parking. Simple light decor. The menu is small and hasn’t changed much over the years, but the food is consistently delicious. Always fantastic service. Favorites are: the pan-fried steak (not rings) calamari with a light lemon-caper sauce; simple caesar salad with flaky-moist blackened halibut; veal saltimbocca; filet mignon cooked two different ways; sausage with polenta; house-made pastas are wow! (The spicy pasta IS spicy.) Small, but decent beer and wine list - while small, what they do offer is well-chosen.

On arrival, we waited for about 30 seconds before any of the staff noticed we were waiting to be seated. When I reserved through Open Table, I included we were celebrating my husband’s birthday. No mention was made of this during our time at the restaurant. There was a noticeable lag in service between the time we were seated and when the waitress came to take our order (she was enjoying visiting with people seated at a nearby table.) The restaurant ambiance is a warmer and quieter Italian environment than Olive Garden.
We appreciated the entree included choice of a side salad. My husband enjoyed the pasta puttanesca and I was happy with the fish of the day special: halibut with polenta and mixed vegetables. We were too full to consider ordering dessert. Overall, a good experience.

Everything about Campobello Bistro was enjoyable. Visited with out of town friends way past the kitchen closing in the afternoon and we were told we were welcome to sit and visit as long as we wanted. We had a lovely afternoon and a delicious meal.

Overall the service was very good. However, the food quality didn’t match. My potato soup tasted like it came out of the can and the seafood medley lacked depth of flavor. My wife’s pasta puttanesca dish had very little flavor as well. The only saving grace was the wine and calamari were very good. I don’t think we will return!!

The food was excellent as always, which is the main reason we choose this place. That and that it is quiet dining. However, the acerbic waitress is hard to take. When my son-in-law asked for her help in choosing between two equally good meals she lit into him and told him “that is the worst thing you can do to a waitress” and then added, “I make decisions all day and I’m sick of it.” Then she wouldn’t let him choose whether he wanted soup or salad to go with what she had chosen for him. He took it well but I thought she was the rudest waitress I had ever heard of. This has happened before. It seems to be her style. She bawled out a young child for dropping his fork and napkin. I won’t be going back there any time soon at least not for dinner. Their lunch time wait staff knows how to be polite to the customer.

The food was actually pretty good. But the waiter was obnoxious and full of himself. There were three of us. We ordered full meals including appetizers and wine. It was a big night out for us - we were taking out a friend from Italy. We wanted some authentic food. The big downer is that they brought two slices of bread for three of us. When we asked for more, the waiter said they were completely out and that gluten was unhealthy for us anyways so we should be glad and adopt a gluten-free diet. At that point we decided to skip dessert and leave. As we were leaving the restaurant, we saw a new guest being seated and they (a nice-looking single woman) were given a full-looking basket of bread. I'm just not sure what happened. It was just a weird experience and we won't go back.

As usual, the food was delicious and the service excellent. The dining area was quite; conversation from the few occupied tables was barely audible. What kept this from being a 4+ experience was the unnecessary LOUD and almost constant chit chat from the kitchen and waitstaff. I take no issue with the staff conversing in the back at a volume level that is appropriate but a few of them were too loud or stood directly in the doorway of the dining room that led to the kitchen. I could hear all of there conversations, some of them with foul language, as if they were sitting at my table. This is honestly not something I would expect from Campo and was highly disappointed in the lack of awareness and professionalism from the staff.

I had the calamari scaloppine and the caesar salad. They were excellent. The service was good as well.
If Alaskan summers continue to be this hot, they may want to invest in fans. It was toasty inside.

The food and service was good but not great. It was a nice atmosphere and relatively quiet. It became very busy and although I would liked to have a glass of wine the servicer was a little too busy.

This place needs a management makeover. The hostess was so pleasant when she greeted us and then we were passed onto our waitress who apparently is also the coowner - and she was snarky, rude and inattentive. It took 45 minutes just to get our drink order and OVER ONE HOUR for our salads...then our entree 90 minutes later and ONLY after we made it clear to the hostess we would walk away. The waitress came to our table and brusquely asked us “so I understand you will walk away in 10 minutes?” She never apologized, she never treated us with good customer service nor did she check on us after our meals FINALLY came. The food was great - no doubt about that — but there are plenty other top restaurants we will gladly spend our money. Never again.

Excellent as always. We dine here several times/year and the food and service are consistently great. The calamari steaks are cooked perfectly, maybe a little too much garlic, but it's wonderful. The veal in the veal saltimboca is tender enough to cut with a fork. The entrees always come with seasonal veggies and a scalloped potato. Good seafood specials, and the traditional Italian pastas are also good. The Tiramisu is a great desert to finish off the evening.

Dinner last night (7/25/2019) was an excellent meal. All of the food items were freshly prepared, executed well and presented beautifully. Jodi, our waitress, provided us with excellent service and well as the rest of the staff on site that night. I have been to this restaurant several times of the last number of years and have never been disappointed with the either the service or the food. A great place to dine out and be served a delicious dinner. Highly recommend this place!
