The crab empanadas were amazing but not necessarily worth $24. You only get two. Service was great.

About the restaurant
Campania Coal Fired Pizza specializes in exactly what its name implies: delicious pizza cooked in a coal oven to produce a unique smoky texture to the crust and toppings. This special method of cooking pizza imparts certain flavors that simply can't be replicated by using a wood burning stove or other method of heating. Diners simply need to taste for themselves the difference Campania's incredibly hot coal-fired grill makes Campania's pizza menu comes with a build-your-own pizza option as well as several signature house recipes. Some of the delicious pizzas diners can try out are the Margherita, Buffalo Chicken and the Calabrese with tomato sauce, hot soppressata, mozzarella, pecorino romano and basil. If guests aren't in the mood for pizza they can also order one of the sandwiches like the chicken parmigiana or the Napoli with grilled chicken, mozzarella and a made-from-scratch pesto sauce.

The restaurant was busy however we were seated right away when we arrived. Our server was attentive and efficient. The food was delicious - everyone loved their meals from the appetizers all the way to dessert! My peach sangria was one of the best I’ve had. We will be back again soon!

Food and drinks were good. I have dined there before but last nights server was very inattentive, and the restaurant was empty so that was not the issue. I would have appreciated better service as the prices are a bit high.
