Campo - Mammoth Ratings and Reviews
The food was amazing, the Chef's certainly know what they are doing especially when it comes to pasta and dessert. The service from Moustache Dave was second to none as he made the night even more enjoyable for us. With a little information from us he knew what food to recommend and he was spot on. A family of 3 happy Australians!
Campo surprised me. Went for Valentines Dinner and the Prix Fixe menu was delicious and beautiful presentation. IMO Usually Val meals are tedious. Waiter was pleasant and interesting but also attentive. Corkage Fee very reasonable and no push back. Very happy with Campo especially for Mammoth.
I've been here 5 or 6 times in the past 3 years and the food is always great. We had to wait for our table, not a big deal but 25 mins past resie time. Drinks took 26 mins to get after order .... not great service there.
Food wait was even longer than that our waiter made good on the delay.
Our waiter was terrific and the food was excellent. The only things that we found lacking, was the service was slow to come out of the kitchen and it took a very long time to get our bill. We will go back because our servers were excellent and the food was delicious.
We love Campo! It is one of our favorite restaurants in Mammoth. My husband and I sat at the bar and had a couple of cocktails (I had a lovely Negroni and my husband had a New York Sour which was so fun and yummy. The bartender nailed both!) We shared our favorite Kale salad with the poached egg, Beesting pizza (just the perfect mix of spicy, sweet, crust - YUM!). We ended with a salted caramel budino pudding. This place is just special! So special that it is almost impossible to get in lately without a reservation. Glad that the Mammoth restaurant business is doing so well. Buen Provecho!
Food was subpar. It was MLK weekend but that shouldn't have mattered. Food was very average. Not worth the money really. Thank goodness we had reservations or we would not have gotten in. Even though we probably would have gotten to eat somewhere better if we didn't have the reservation. Food took a long time to come out.
Overpriced place that nickel and dimes you. Host was arrogant and rude, waiter was cool. Environment in Sunday during "kids eat free" is full kids, obviously.. so it was loud but not that big of deal. The food, however, was a joke. $20 for a pizza and still hungry for more. Spaghetti with no sauce and then charged $2 for more marinara sauce. I highly recommend you DO NOT go here unless you are good with a dud host and way overpriced food that is mediocre at best.. except for the pizza crust, that was pretty great... but still not worth the outrageous price.
Service started out great. Waiter was very cordial and orders were placed. After that, things went downhill. Follow up during the waiting-for-the-meal process and after meal was served was not that great. Had to ask for things like salt & pepper and cheese and red peppers or "how is your dinner".
Our server was excellent. Unfortunately, we can not say the same for the food. Our pasta dishes arrived within 5 minutes of ordering them, which was a huge warming sign that the pasta had been pre-cooked and was sitting out, cold, gummy and starchy. The sauces were also very watery leaving much to be desired. Our two oldest and youngest children liked the pizza, but our 4 year old knew right away that his pizza was covered in something other than pepperoni. Really? Trying to get fancy on a kids menu with the meats? Kids want pepperoni. He called you out on your failure right away. Luckily, we had frozen pizzas in our condo - Celeste, $99! He loved it! Our kids usually devour the bread at restaurants but all four refused to eat it. After trying it ourselves, my husband and I understood why. Flavorless, dry and hard. We were looking forward to a great meal....unfortunately, we didn't find it here.
After reading a number of the recent negative reviews, my expectations were pretty low for this dinner. I was however pleasantly surprised that our experience was not consistent with some of the bad reviews I read from other diners.
We had an outstanding server. She made excellent suggestions and was very attentive even though the restaurant was packed. We ordered the cauliflower appetizer which was "ok", the daily special pizza and the warm spinach salad and really enjoyed both of them. Our friend ordered the fish entree and through it was delicious. We ordered the tiramisu and caramel budino for dessert. The tiramisu was "ok" but the budino was amazing!!!
Waiter was awful. Left us sitting forever- took 15 min when we were seated and then another 15 min to come back and get our order. Always had someone else deliver food or drinks. Never checked on us. Just left us sitting forever and when he would show up would try WAY too hard by being overly friendly because he knew he was messing up.
I had read some disappointing reviews of Campo so I was not expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised by our delicious meal. We sampled the polenta appetizer with Burrata cheese and truffles, roasted garlic cauliflower and the pork belly appetizer that was paired nicely with honey, fennel and strawberries. We also ordered pizza, lentil soup and a simple pasta dish. Everything was seasoned nicely and we left full and happy. Our server was great and the whole family left happy with full bellies.
My family and I enjoyed dinner at the Mammoth restaurant on Nov 23. We were greeted by a friendly waiter who was attentive and funny. I was happy they had gluten free options including pizza. The family enjoyed the pasta and pizza options and brocolini. I would recommend this cozy and fun restaurant to anyone coming to Mammoth.
Great setting. Beautiful decor. Attentive and courteous servers. Everything was great except our meals. The spaghetti was under cooked as was the rice in the risotto which made it watery. Disappointing as we didn't have time to send our meals back. Other comments being so positive, we may give it another try.
Food was not as good as the other Campo's I have been to. The Rib eye was $45.00 which was fine except there was so much fat he had to really work at getting a good bite , my husband ended up eating 1/2 my new york. I dont mind paying $45.00 for a steak we pay that at Palmers here in Reno but it usually an outstanding steak. Not sure if I would go back to this restraunt in Mammonth
The restaurant promotes original Italian cuisine but there were only a very few Italian dishes available. The food was passable but not excellent. I had the risotto with hen & the meat was very tough. Others had pasta which was okay but the chicken was very tender.
My wife and I had dinner at Campo while staying at the Westin. We made a reservation which was not really necessary for a weekday night. It was a nice evening and they provide heaters so that outside seating was fine. We really did not like the indoor ambience. We asked the waiter for his drafts and he gave us a rundown. We ordered a double IPA each. When they arrived we were surprised how small the glasses were (about 1/2 pint). The waiter explained that they use the smaller glasses when you order a double IPA. It would have been nice to get that info before you order. We ordered the Brussels sprouts as an appetizer and they were good. My wife had a burger which she liked. They delivered it to a table next to ours first. I ordered one of their pizzas that the waiter explained as thin crust to me when I ordered it. When it came it did not look like thin crust. When I asked another waiter about it he told me that it depends who prepares the pizza.
The food is fine, nothing special. Being able to sit outside and observe what is going on in the Village was the best of the visit.
We were looking for a somewhat upscale, but casual restaurant with nice ambiance, but also dog-friendly, to celebrate our college-age daughter's birthday. We liked the idea of Italian food, but not typical spaghetti & meatballs or pepperoni pizza you can have anywhere. The menu seemed to offer items that are interesting to culinary fans, without being pretentious or outrageously expensive. Outdoor patio was really nice, with fire pits and sofas.
The service was great and the food we ordered was really good. Started with complimentary focaccia with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Followed by Fritto Misto, Heirloom Tomato Salad and Kale Salad with Soft-Poached Egg and crunchy Grana Padano. Topped off with Bee Sting Pizza and Fuji Apple/Bacon/Gorgonzola Pizza. There was also complimentary creme brûlée type of dessert for the birthday girl. Everything was to our liking; nothing that blew our minds from a flavor or originality standpoint, but carefully prepared dishes that were presented well and didn't seem like it was made in an assembly line or in advance.
One reason for less than 5 stars is lack of seafood choices. Would be great to see local trout on the menu, or other items like salmon, ahi tuna, mahi mahi, shrimp, scallops. Other reason is that it's in an area that gets windy, so it would have been nice to have wind deflectors or something that keeps napkins from flying or making us shrivel up from the cold winds. We were able to drag our table closer to a nearby fire pit, but we shouldn't have had to do that.
Been here many times before and never disappointed. This time, no bueno. Waiter forgot about us, forgot about our drinks, one of the two pastas was inedible (to his credit the waiter took it off the bill), the bread was stale... Will we go again, yes, but with trepidation.
