Our Visit on March 24th 3/29/2012

I too have never taken the time to write a review before also! We were at Mama Campisi on March 24th too. We were a party of 4. We waited for a table for 20 min, which on a sat night is not bad! we first went to Zia's, but the wait was over one hour! After we were seated we ordreed our appitzer and our food. It did take 15 min to get our appitzer! Our salads did come right after we finished it, so things were going good so far.... Then we were waiting for our food, when i asked what was taking so long, our waiter when and got the manager. She came right over and explained they had an unexspected emergenancy with one of the cooks. She must have said she was sorry ten times in talking with us. We did get our food after about an hour. I have to say it was amazing! This was our first time there, but the other couple we were with, had been there many times before! They kept telling us, something must be wrong, we have NEVER waited this long before!! When we did finish our meal, and the server brought us the bill, the manager took 50% off. I did call the owner the next day and talked to her also, then i relized, only when something is bad, do people ever call or write about it!! The owner too was aware of what happen Sat night. She also said, this has never happen! So, even tho we did wait along time for our food and the restaurent did have a bad night, I would like to Stress, the food was the Best i have had in a long time!! The management, server, were very upset and doing what they could to please everyone! I will be going back because, I do believe this had to be a one time bad night for Mama Campisis! I will be coming back!!! more

Unbelievable! 3/24/2012

I have never written a review before but after tonight feel its nessasary to pass this along. I had to put one star to publish this review otherwise it would be zore stars. I cannot rate the food at Mama Campisi's since I never got it. After being seated our order was taken and then we waited. After 30-45 minutes they told us they forget our appitzer of toasted ravs, then my wife's special was not put in so they ran out. She then ordered the spaghetti and meatballs and we were told it would be right up. After another long wait our waiter came to use and said they lost our whole order and he recommended we leave. When we asked to speak to a manager we were told they will not talk to us or anyone in the dining room and the wait staff was not to ask any other questions. After 3 hours we didn't eat and left. We walked a block down the street and had a wonderful meal at Zia's. DONT EVER GO TO MAMA CAMPISI'S! more

Excellent food at a very fair price 2/23/2011

Mama's is a bit of a throwback. If you want very good, traight-ahead Italian as most Americans have come to expect it and don't put an emphasis on atmosphere, then Mama's is really excellent. The Chicken Spendini is notably famous and very generous. The pastas are nicely done traditional pasta dishes, the pizza is thin crust, but not St. Louis style. The Calamari we had for $7.95 as an app kept four of us busy for quite a while. The surroundings are not fancy, the servers are approachable and friendly, but the pace can be a bit hectic, so if you want a more upscale experience, there are better choices for you. If you want very good Italian at a very fair price, Mama's is an excellent choice. more

""The Hill's"" Best Italian! 12/2/2010

My husband and I were trying to find an italian place for our wedding Anniversary on The Hill. We found Mama Campisi's..WOW.....what a great experience! The atmosphere was soooo nice and friendly. Our server was excellent. I ordered the chicken spedini and my husband had a steak, both were unbelievable! In fact our server threw in a FREE dessert for our anniversary! When your anniversary come up go straight to the Hill to Mama Campisi's! more

Great place to dine for a good price 4/16/2010

My husband I I went there last night and it was wonderful. We were greeted at the door by the owner, and she was happy to seat us with a smile. We had a wonderful table by the window showing how pretty The Hill really is. Our waiter Mike was great, he was very helpful and had some interesting facts about the hill and the restaurant. There was a guy going around singing old Senatra hits and it was great and added to the whole night. When our food came out it took my breath away, the portions were huge! We had the cheese sticks... I know I know. but i was told they were good and a must try so we did. And they were great! Made from provel instead of the normal cheese, it was like biting into butter! Pros: Chicken spidini and staff Cons: Nothing! more

Italian at its Best! 3/20/2010

I dine here with my family as frequently as I/we possibly can. I can assure you this is a first class place, with exceptional owners who go out of their way to make sure you have a wonderful dining experience. These cyber bullies truly need to stop with all of these hateful, false comments not only are they hurtful to the owners and employees but also the guests that enjoy going here! We do take this personally and if it does not stop I will take a personal interest in finding out who you are and prosecuting you to the fullest extent of the law. Mama Campisis many blessings and much success!! Pros: Owners, Service, Food--Top 3 Cons: False negative reviews! more

Jersey to St. Louiy 3/20/2010

Came to Mamas while in St. Louis on a business trip. With being from New Jersey, New York and family in Brooklyn I'm use to incredible Italian food! But I have to tell you Mama's is over the top good!! I normally do not write reviews but felt compelled to do so after an incredible evening, we were greeted prompltly at the door, taken to our table then server arrived ready to get our drinks and giving us mouth watering descriptions of the specials.. We started with toasted ravioli and Italian nachos...(yummy) mamas house salad.--- please get that dressing bottled want to get some sent home to the family--chicken spedini-- what can I say never had anything like it.. would highly recommend to EVERYONE!!!! and a simple dish spaghetti and meatballs--Love the marinara sauce so much better than most places sauce.. could tell it was fresh with the tomato chuncks.. throughout the meal eatting the fresh slice Italian bread and seasoned olive oil on the table... Finishing this incredible meal seemed a pitty so we took a peak at the dessert tray and topped it off with the tiramisu... Staying in a hotel normally a bad idea to bring left overs back, but YES again another exception. all I can say is thanks and BRING MAMAS TO JERSEY!!!!!! Pros: Great Italian food! Cons: cant visit frequently enough more

Just don't go 1/23/2010

As a first generation Italian, I was simply embarassed when I took my relitives to dinner here. The pasta tasted like can pasta from the store, the waiter was very rude, talked too much, and bragged about how he gets paid under the table. With all the fine restaurants in town just stay away from this one. Cons: Food quality, service quality, shady business practice's more

Highly recomended 10/7/2007

We went on a weekday afternoon. My wife and I each had a pasta dish and my daughter had calimari. The waiter was very friendly,As far as being crowded,it was an oof peak hour on a weekday afternnon but they were very accomodating as far as were we would like to sit and all. more

WOW!!!! OUTSTANDING!!!! 2/26/2006

Thank-You for an outstanding evening. We visited the restaurant on a sunday evening, about 6pm the restaurant was full and people were waiting. But no one seemed to miss a beat. We were treated like we were the only ones in the restaurant, not only by the employees but also by the owners who seemed to take great pride in what they were doing, They introduced themselves to us and visited our table several times. This was extra nice, you don't see that very often anymore. Service was wonderful and the food was great! Mama Campisis you are GREAT... Pros: selection, cleanliness, hospitality more

There will be many more I am sure!!!! Pros: Family, Service, Atmosphere more

Rather Eat at a Prison 2/18/2006

Mama Campisi's is hands down the worst dining experience I have ever had. For starters, the waitress was a complete idiot. After ten minutes we yelled for another waiter to bring bread after the table next to us (came in ten minutes after us) were receiving their second round of bread. The only reason they got theirs first was the lady yelled at the waitress before we could get to her. Then they mixed up the orders and the table mentioned above received our order and we proceeded to wait for 30 extra minutes to get our meal. My baked lasagna was freezing cold in the center. The management refused to compensate us appropriately and even had the audacity to cop an attitude with me. Please don't waste your time or hard earned money on this pitiful establishment. DO NOT EAT HERE! more

This Place is Too Inconsistent to Recommend 3/2/2005

We travel back to St. Louis regularly and used to always eat at Mama Campisi's Restaurant at least once or twice every trip. The pizza and italian salad were always favorites, but the other food was always dependable as well. However, the last two times we ate here, the food was terrible and the service was poor and we were very disappointed. I don't know what happened, if there was a change of management or what, but we will not go back to this place and there are definitely better and more dependable places to eat on the Hill. Pros: Open on Sunday Cons: Food, Service, Inconsistency more
