My family has an authentic Italian restaurant in the mid-west and I've always been a snob about other Italian restaurants as a result but not after dining at Campania. The food is very creative, exquisitely prepared, perfectly timed and absolutely delicious! The wine list is excellent. The place is tight on space but if you enjoy feeling like you've been transported to a small, hole-in-the-wall and intimate Italian tratoria, then I feel you should overlook this. It's cozy and filled with intimate, hushed conversations. The waitstaff is very attentive but not overly so. The manager or chef has always visited my table (or the bar if I'm eating there) and ensured everything was up to par. They know what they are doing here. The staff regularly travels to Italy for ideas, tastings and education. It truly is a gem of a place that I hope is around for a very long time. Plus, the added benefit is that if you live in the burbs, you will know that places like this are often downtown to it's a special treat to find something nearby. Overall, I can't say enough about this palce. I would give service a ""5"", the atmosphere a ""5"" and the food a ""5"" as well. The only real challenge is parking but generally, in the evening, you can find something on the street so it's not like parking in the North End. Bravo Campania!!
Pros: Food, service, atmosphere, wine list
Cons: hard to get a table last minute (but that's a good sign!), and parking is on the street
