Italian
For over 30 years, Campagnola has been serving the people who defined New York City. Country-style, Italian dining where plates are meant to be shared, and elbows are meant to be touched. And yet if chairs could talk, these ones probably wouldn't.

    The best overall “old school” hospitality experience you can get from an Italian restaurant. Classy with white linen, waiters in uniform, live piano man singing and playing the piano and not to mention the ambience is warm and inviting. The food is insanely tasty and the drinks are strong. They even start you with a solid free charcuterie plate; what more can you ask!?

    The best restaurant in NYC. Steak is better than Lugers. Potato Pie. Bow tie Pasta in Vodka sauce with Lobster is top notch. Napoleon for desert is also the best in town. Wish I still lived nearby. Thanks Frankie.

    Booked months in advance for a birthday dinner. Difficult to get a reservation in this well regarded and celebrated restaurant. Unfortunately we were quite disappointed with the quality of the food, we found to be not up to our expectations, though we are no novices when it comes to Italian cuisine on both sides of the water. Even our waiter commented on the top line house speciaties that we had ordered. Service was professional, but at the price of this dinner I won't be hurrying back...

    A place to see and be seen, Capagnolas has an unpretentious entrance in an equally unpretentious neighborhood. The food is fantastic. My husband’s steak pizziola was cooked to perfection, a good sized portion and delicious. My gnocchi in pesto sauce, also a good sized portion was creamy and delectable. The waiter recommended the Napoleon as the best dessert choice and boy was he right. The pastry was light and flaky and the cream filling was delicious and not too sweet. Our service was fantastic and for New York dollars the price was right. We love going to Campagnolas whenever we’re in the city. Will definitely be back!

    Food is great and everyone is nice enough, but it is too much like an assembly line. The setup, lighting and decor are all great and what you want in an old school Italian restaurant. From the moment you walk in, you feel rushed. They are asking if you want a drink before you are seated (and without offering a menu or wine list) and the waiters are literally standing behind you waiting to take your plate away before you are finished. Everyone is packed like sardines in there, which leads to it being very noisy with everyone talking over each other (and the piano). If they pulled 1-2 tables out of there, it would really make a difference. I still give it a 4 because the food is the most important and I leave room for people who may like the vibe

    We had a lovely front of house table, but the piano playing rendered conversation nearly impossible. If I return it would have to be with seating in the middle of the room. Otherwise excellent food, service and cocktails.

    The service was excellent and the hospitality great. Sadly, I was disappointed. The $21 mozerella and prosciutto appetizer was cold. It should be room temp to warm. The amatriciana is authentically served with bucatini; they used fusilli, so the sauce was lost on it. The Zuppa di Pesce was mediocre; the calamari, shrimp and lobster in it were like rubber. For $200, no alcohol, it was not worth the price.

    Veal Parm was grilled veal paillard with sauce and a blob of fresh mozzarella. The langostinos were served incorrectly. The glass of moscato was served in a champagne flute and was a tiny tiny serving. The ravioli with porcini mushrooms were without mushrooms and stuffed with ricotta (i believe) and some seasoning. I have eaten there 5 times before. 4 were very good. The steak is actually great and they will split the pastas into select three as a course and you can try a bunch. However, it is very clear there is a hierarchy of customer there and have left a few times feeling like a second class citizen. The food is generally good, but stay away from the veal parm. The $300 bill for dinner for 2 was a bit heavy IMO/
