Campino has an amazing sports bar, beautiful dinning room, private rooms, and outside patios.
Our great wine list includes the Casa Americo wine selection made in our own vineyard in Portugal, among the a great selection of Portuguese and American wines.
Campino restaurant that's the place to be if you are looking or delicious food, beautiful ambiance and excellent service.
The food is worth going. Hands down. I will return
Food was so good, very clean, quick, friendly,
I’m very happy with everything. I will go back in heatbit.
Food was great!
Food was good. GALIC SHRIMP WAS EXCELLENT.. Only a little disappointed in the veal chop.. butterflied and a little to well done...other items were very good
I've been to Campino's several times. Thought quality went down each time that I went.
The translation from guest to waiter to kitchen back to guest was an adventure.
A number plates came back different due to misunderstanding
Good news is that it was all excellent and they recognized it and corrected it with a smile
It was a very lively restaurant, my husband and I enjoyed our dinner very much!
My husband and I came here for valentines dinner and after I had convince my husband the restaurant was a good choice of restaurant because I had been here many times before and booked company events and bday dinners.
Unfortunately, our dining experience was not good at all. We first ordered the seafood tower and we were told that would take about 45 mins to come out which we found odd being that it's a cold dish.
So, we decided not to order it and we ordered clams in garlic sauce which was extremely salty.
As for our entrees my husband ordered steak and requested medium rare, it was overcooked and super dry and I order grilled octopus and that was breaded with tons off olive oil underneath the octopus, all I could taste was the olive oil, we could not finish up our dinner so we decided to ask for the check and leave to another restaurant. We were extremely disappointed, and were not sure if we would come back or recommend this restaurant.
My wife and I had a phenomenal time, we went for Valentine’s Day and they did not disappoint. Great food, drinks, and the live music put the experience over the top!
My favorite restaurant in the Ironbound! Thank you
I looked a restaurant close to Newark Airport (only 7 minutes away) for a quick dinner with a friend arriving from a long flight. Found Campino, and it was amazing. We both had fish. Absolutely delish! I will definitely come back should we be in the area.
We LOVE it here!!! We are from another state but when we travel, we typically stay in Newark the night before our flight. We make our reservations for Campino every single time and THAT is how we start vacation! The food, service, cocktails and atmosphere never disappoints. I can’t wait until my next vacation just so I can eat dinner here!
It was quiet on a Sunday night and we enjoyed it IMMENSELY!! I had a little trouble understanding the waiter so we got “Spanish fries” instead of “Spanish rice” but we enjoyed them immensely!! Lol
They did not update your site properly so my 6p reservation was changed to 3p the day before and after confirming at 1130a on the day of I recieved a call at 230p saying it was for 2p. However once there everything was great
Went there last Saturday evening, it was the most disappointing dining experience we ever had. Took 40 minutes to get a drink, over two hours to get our meal, only after threatening to leave, of which we saw at least three tables get up and left. Waiter disappeared, my wife, even went to the Bar to get another drink as the waiter never came back.
Ordered apps. The chorizo had more fat than my mother in law. Ordered dinner and after an hour and 10 minutes we had to leave. Our server kept apologizing but not once did a manager come over. Got our check and left - late for an 8:00 show. This evening was a disaster and we will not be going back.
Fantastic on all counts, our table for six was cozy, service and food exceptional.
Our meals weren’t served in abundance. Just the right amount of serving. Personally I don’t like to bring left overs home. Sangria was good. The serradura cream was too dense. Will not order that again. Service was pleasant and attentive.
Great place to have an special event, we had a group of eight and dinner plates were served at the same time. Plates were well prepared, the presentation was good.
Great food. Atmosphere and price is good. Went with family
If you like well prepared, delicious food, and the ability to carry on a conversation, this is the place.
The services was very slow but our waiter was really nice. My filet Mignon I requested well done and butterfly, it was still red inside it wasn’t butterfly and I didn’t enjoy my meal since it was all fat on the filet mignon.
We arrived on time for a 7pm reservation, the restaurant was half occupied and waited about 10 minutes to be seated. Some of the tables near us had not been cleared from other diners (and remained that way the for the entire time that we were there). No one from the wait staff came over, no water & no bread nor anyone to greet us and take our order for a while. Eventually our order was taken and one of our diners asked for bread which never arrived. One diner also ordered a soda, did not arrive so he asked again, still did not arrive. We were charged for two sodas, apparently the order was entered, just not delivered. The meals arrived and the food was good, but their service was not good. No one checked on us, not a good dining experience.
Wonderful Atmosphere. Great food. Great people.
Service below average. Restaurant was only 40% at capacity at the time. Needed to remind waiter of wine order and ask for items typically served with meal.
Food was bland.
disappointed with quality of food and service. seafood was overcooked, steak was so-so and waiter barely spoke english. when we place our order for entries he told us that it includes a salad and then ended up charging us for that. i will not recommend it, actually stay away from it.
Great place for any occasion. Main dining room is open plan. Ability to choose live seafood and fresh cuts of meat. Friendly, knowledgeable Sommelier. Excellent Chef able to prepare rare and well done meats without either being tough or flavorless. Vegetarian options available.
Service was slower than expected, had to walk up to the waiter a few times for requests. Otherwise food is exellent.
Fun place with great food and good service!
Our reservation was at 6pm, and we arrived a little early. The place was just starting to fill, so we had no problems getting seated. Initially, the service was nice. The reading of the specials was helpful, and we got our drinks quickly. The apps were really pretty good. The octopus salad and flambe chorizo was a nice combination. A little on the salty side, but that's a matter of taste.
Then it went downhill. Our food took quite some time (Filet and the grouper special). The food first went to another table, then back to the kitchen, then finally to us. The steak was very, very rare. Raw. And our servers never once checked on us. We wanted another round of drinks, but they were nowhere to be found. Never even got a water refill.
When we flagged someone down so we could get our check, the host/manager apologized and half-heartedly offered a free desert. Overall, not worth the time with so many other options in the area.
I had an absolutely fantastic grilled octopus entree. Was delicious!
Clams were overcooked... the cilantro garlic sauce was great though. The shrimp cocktail and crab stuffed mushrooms were also very good. I couldn't tell why I was seeing great food go by, like the charcuterie plate, but it was not on the menu. The tapas menu was on a promo table stand we didn't have. So disappointed I didn't get to try the other goodness there.
We picked this restaurant for its location not far from the airport. We have been here several times but not for Sat. lunch. The food was good, the service very good. The restaurant was empty at 2:00 on a Sat. so we had alot of attention.
The food is very good here, but what is notable is the service, which was friendly and attentive (but not overly so). My daughter is a vegetarian, so I liked that there were a couple vegetarian options, which were tough to find when I looked at the menus of other local Portuguese restaurants.
Great food, great atmosphere and great service with a smile!
The service and the food was amazing! The waiter was very polite and service was quick!!
Wanted some Portuguese food before a concert. Restaurant was quiet for a Friday night, staff was very attentive and gave recommendations. Food was excellent and plentiful! Will be back!!
We have come to Campino to celebrate special occasions at other times. We have always found the food to be delicious. I ordered the WILD salmon which is hard to find in restaurants now a days. I found it to be very good along with the vegetables and sweet potatoes. I was not disappointed. I did find the desert and cappuccino to be a bit too much on the sweet side. I don't put sugar in my cappuccino and this one seemed to come sweeten. The service was good and the shrimp and garlic appetizer was delicious. I am sure I will go again.
