I would elevate La Campania as one of the finest dining experiences anyone can possibly imagine! We have enjoyed wonderful dinners at Aujourd'hui, Four Seasons Hotel, and last night our meal was just as memorable - simply devine. Everything clicked as we were seated near the fireplace and wine cellar. The ambiance was romantic - perfect for Valentine's Day. Imagine... More

My friend and I went to La Campania for his birthday celebration--I for the first time, he for one of many visits. We were both impressed! The food was excellent, the service impeccable, and the bar drinks perfect. The decor and atmosphere were also wonderful. We were seated near the wine room, which is impressive, and yet which doesn't detract... More

Don't waste time anywhere else! La Campania ABSOLUTELY out of this world. Wife & I dined here with our daughter 1/16 and it was one of the best experiences in quite some time. We travel often and are foodies — upscale restaurants are a specialty. We were lucky enough to be seated in front of a fireplace. Beautiful. Ordered a... More

While not my first choice for Italian food in Boston, it is hard to believe that The Hub is blessed with so many top Italian restaurants, and the two best are in Waltham. Go figure! This place is a very close second to Il Cappracio which is just down the road. But don't cry for La Campagna, they do quite... More

Went last night to celebrate a friend's birthday. Started with the Sparkling Pama (prosecco and pomegranate juice) and fois gras appetizer (on top of duck confit and pears in a flaky-crispy pastry). Flavors and textures were probably the highlight of the meal. Next was the entree and I was happy for small portions on the pasta. Short run ravioli (3)... More

Every time I dine here, I feel like I am in Italy. The food is consistently spectacular, the staff makes you feel part of the family and the setting is ideal to enjoy talking with your dinner companions. La Campania is unquestionably the best Italian restaurant in the Boston suburbs and one of the best in the entire greater Boston... More

This restaurant has a difficult and very eclectic menu which can be an adventure if the end result is satisfying. It is grossly overcharging for food that is not outstanding. $42 for a pork chop?!?!

I confess that I was not expecting much. I thought that we were going to a neighborhood family Mexican restaurant for a family birthday. Instead I was introduced to this gem. Not pretentious but absolutely world class. Cannot say enough good things about it.
