Campagnolo Italian Restaurant (Boca Raton)
Campagnolo Italian Restaurant, 3013 Yamato Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33434, (561) 989-1990.
Campagnolo has been open for about 3 months. This Southern Italian joint serves both individual/family style…for example, a half order of spaghetti & meatballs runs $11.95 and a full order costs $19.95…a half order of chicken scarpariello runs $18.95 and a full order is $31.95…a half order of chicken piccata runs $13.95 and a full order is $24.95…
I ate dinner twice at this joint and took-out a pizza another time. Just so you know, in addition to that pizza, I “sampled” a fried zucchini appetizer, a baked clams appetizer, a chicken scarpariello entree, a chicken parmigiana entree, a veal pizzaiola entree, a calamari marinara entree and an order of rigatoni a la vodka.
Over-all I would rate the food as borderline FAIR… Let me give you the actual scorecard… The zucchini was good…The baked clams were fair…The chicken scarpariello was fair…The chicken parmigiana tasted like the chicken parmigiana that Saga Food served me at Ithaca College, circa 1970, horrendous…The veal pizzaiola was fair…The calamari marinara was fair…The rigatoni a la vodka was good…The pizza was lousy.
The service was good. You do get plenty of food for the money whether you order half/full portions…then again, if the stuff is no good, you don’t need a ton of it.
Let’s put it this way…Your favorite neighborhood joint is better than this latest South Florida Italian restaurant entry.
Campagnolo is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner
