da Campo Osteria has been a favorite since they opened. We first went on their 2nd or 3rd day open to the public. The hotel has apparently been sold and the menu was cut to salads, burgers and flat bread with one steak (dreadful) and one veal special. There was one chef making the mozzarella & doing ALL of the cooking-badly. Our calamari was overcooked and inedible. The flat bread overloaded so that the toppings fell off as you bit into the too crispy crust. The burger was passable. The steak was too expensive, over cooked and very sloppy in presentation (served with all kinds of topping better suited to a pizza). It is very disappointing that they did not have the decency to warn Open Table patrons that the menu was so completely changed.

Restaurant in the Il Lugano hotel and condos. So you get the families staying in the hotel/condo. Sometimes that does not make for a romantic evening. But the food and service is very good. You must have the fresh made mozzerella if you go. Also the scallops are excellent. Get a table with a view of the intercostal. Makes it even better.

We noticed several changes immediately after arriving. Front bar was closed with no live music. Hostess was delayed (seemed to be doing multiple tasks). While waiting for table restaurant bar was empty including no bartender (hostess finally came over to help us). Once seated, obvious changes on the menu. One major disappointment pointed out was that the mozzarella was no longer prepared table side. I was told the changes I noticed including the menu was because of new ownership. I suppose the new owners missed this table side service as being Da Campos signature item.
Our service was service was excellent once seated, and what we ordered was prepared well. With the exception of the mozzarella...it was fair.
I would expect more!

We were told that the restaurant is under new ownership and that changes had been made to the menu. The mozzarella appetizer used to be made table-side (which made it interesting as well as outstanding) was no longer done. The food was good but not outstanding; no specials were offered. Only half of the listed desserts were available. We may go back but it's no longer high on my list.

Appetizers were great. My wife and I ordered dinner after the apps. I ordered a pork chop. Twenty five minutes after ordering it, waiter came back and said sorry we have no pork chops and that the restaurant would buy my entree. I ordered veal saltimboca, which I have has there on many occasions. The veal and my wife's entree came out two minutes later. The veal had clearly been pre cooked and thrown into the microwave. It was dry, stringy and tough. I immediately sent it back. The restaurant didn't charge us for the entrees, but alas I left without having had an entree. I tipped the waiter as if we had paid for the entire meal. Maitre de never appeared to apologize. Sad display since I live in a big building in the neighborhood.

Our reservations were for 9 pm. We felt unattended to. Presentation in the delivery was poor, dinner-like. Three out of four meals good, the fourth was horrible. He was offered another meal yet charged for the more expensive entree. For an upscale resturant it lacked class.

I honestly would only go there for the Super Mozzarella. Everything else was Ok. King Crab Tortellini, NY Strip, Roasted Chicken, Peruvian Sea Bass and the Seafood Risotto...all Okk. The Risotto was very dry but it was packed with Seafood (crab meat, shrimp,clams,mussels). NY Strip we asked for Medium it was more on the Medium Well side. Peruvian sea bass was bland, it lacked substance. King Crab Tortellini needed some acidity; the sweetness from the crab and the creaminess of the sauce needed acidity to balance it out. For dessert they did not have the tiramisu souffle :( bummer instead I got the White Chocolate Bread Pudding - it was really good; decadent and not overly sweet. The Molten chocolate cake was just like any other.

We had another wonderful meal at da Campo. The food was fantastic -- from the personalized mozzarella preparation to the pasta appetizer and the main courses, topping it off with the Chocolate Souffle. Our waitress, Giorgia, is Italian, and was very knowledgeable about the Italian wines and the various regions of Italy, which only added to the ambiance of the restaurant. They even make their own lemoncello -- just like we were back on the Almafi coast! We've never had a bad meal here, and will definitely be back.

The whole dining experience created a wonderful evening! The reservation was handled very professionally and the perfect table was ready for us on time! We were a group of six people that was seated at a round table next to the window overlooking the Intracoastal. The Super Mozzarella and Beef Carpaccio started the meal off just right and each selection that followed was cooked to perfection. Georgia, our server was exceptional! She was very attentive, always trying to please, and explained the specials patiently. In addition, she is from Italy as was 3 in our group, so speaking Italian was a little special for everyone. A great evening and we will return!

Our server Georgia was great. She recommended that we change our mozzarella order to the "SUPER MOZZARELLA " and it was a great choice. She was able to explain all the specials as well as the questions about the regular menu. The Sous Chef, Raymond Gordon came out to great the table and ask our opinion of the food. He sent out a complementary sweet for us to taste. A great time was had by all. We will be back.

After reading reviews, I was intrigued by the comments about the tableside mozzarella presentation. I was not disappointed. The freshly prepared cheese was delightful as an appetizer. My wife ordered the short rib special which was a huge portion of tender, lean braised beef - delicious! I had the braised beef rib ravioli which was very good. Personally, I would have preferred a thicker tomato based sauce. The chef's complimentary bruschetta was an unexpected delighter, and our server, Carlos, was very personable and efficient.

Called first to make sure they do , do table side making of the fresh mozzarella at lunch . I was told yes so we went. Valet parking , But they do valedate your ticket. Walked almost all around befor we were noticed then seated in a booth looking out the ceiling to floor windows over The Intracoastal & their outside blue cushions below . We'll we were told no table side during day but Chrisety managed to have Chef Raymond come and give us a show and a class like . There are class on how to make mozzarella . We had ours with pros. Pesto pine nuts & yes the creamy garlic like spread . Me personal would like a good hard piece of Itailan bread with it they have nice choices but I'm just saying $20 plus

We chose this restaurant because it is highly rated on Trip Advisor.

The spinach salad was a tasty starter.

We had the king crab tortellini and the jumbo scallops. The mains were fairly good, but not exceptional.

Overall, I would have to say the meal was good, but it did not meet our expectations based on its Trip Advisor rating.

Much more than I expected. We made reservations a week prior to and on the day of Dinner I received a friendly confirmation telephone call from the restaurant (nice touch).
Upon arriving we were immediately sat. The waiter Stanly greeted us with menus and made a couple of suggestions. Still reviewed the menu. Ordered the everything table side mozzarella (great choice) with a bottle of wine. The assorted breads paired well with the mozzarella. Took Stan's suggestion as we were already full from the mozzarella, breads, and wine. The Risotto dish to share consisted of clams, shrimp, lobster, scallops, and mussels. Very tasty and plentiful. Afterwards we had a Tiramisu that was out of this world. The food and service were GREAT. Overall 5+.

Their specialty is the mozzarella antipasti hand-made right at your table. It's so interesting to watch and tastes fantastically fresh and warm. This is definetly not your standard American Italian fare.

I have been here several times and was highly disappointed in the food on this last visit. Several of us ordered a fish special that was totally tasteless. No amount of salt could help this dish. The molten chocolate cake ordered for dessert was luke warm and not molten. On the other hand the mozzarella made table side was excellent as always and the filet special was delicious. One comment on service - I had chosen a wine that they were out of. I was presented with two substitutes but one was much more expensive than what I had originally chosen. I think in a case like this the wait staff needs to be more forthcoming about prices as I had to specifically ask. Everyone had a great time and the wait staff was very attentive as always.

I love this place, I consider it Ft. Lauderdale's best kept secret! The food just as good if not better than Casa D'Angelo's which is always packed with people and you can't get a reservation. You can usually walk right in with no reservation and watch the sunset over the intracoastal. Sergio, our waiter, is very kind and charming too.
