A wonderful outdoor dining experience. Twinkling patio, friendly service, very good food. The margherita pizza was light and delicious. I would only prefer that the coursing is spaced out a little. Otherwise very nice experience!

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.
For our last night of our weeks stay in Mammoth Lakes we selected Campo, anticipating it would be memorable and the grand finale to an amazing stay. Unfortunately, we didn't find that to be the case. The food was mediocre, at best, as well as the service. We had dined at other restaurants in the Village during the week and found each to be far superior to Campo. Needless to say, we were very disappointed......
One of our Mammoth faves!
Campo is always at the top of our list of dining whenever we are in Mammoth. The decor is modern, hip, yet cozy and comfortable.
We loooove the Bee Sting pizza. The mix of jalapeños, honey and cheese meld together for true bliss. And, the crust is uncredible!! The Kale salad with the poached egg and Boar pasta are other favorites. The service is always good. And sitting out on the patio around the fire is fun with a group. Happy mammoth has such a great place in the Village. Looking forward to my next visit to Campo!
Tasty vs. Bland
Some items were superb, others a little disappointing. Some very tasty, whereas others were just a little bland. Hit and miss on what you order, or perhaps which chef was cooking on which night.
Staff were delightful: friendly, efficient, and accommodating.
Wine list had some good selections that were reasonably priced. The specials (including cocktails) were interesting.
All in all, would definitely recommend Campo's to anyone visiting Mammoth.

We had had some poor experiences in the past due to poor service and had not been back in about a year. However things have really changed! The food was outstanding as always. We especially liked the spinach salad, the Brussel sprouts appetizer, the fresh fish, which was beautifully prepared, and the pizza. All were great. More importantly, the service was spot on right from walking in the door and being taken straight to our table, to the terrific server, Matt, who really went out of his way to treat us well. Kudos to him for really doing a great job, and to Campos in turning this all around.
Waiter was great and took good care of us.
Had the four course Thursday night special and found the food bland.
Order a bottle of wine (Pinot Noir) which was returned, flat and boring. Waiter change the bottle for a Cab/Sav which he said everyone liked. That bottle was better, but would not recommend ordering it.
Most likely would not return, this is my second time trying the food out and am not impressed. For the taste or the money spent.
This was the third time I have been to Campo. If you want a good pizza, you cannot go wrong. However, many of the other entrees and sides are mediocre at best. They apparently pride themselves on their spaghetti and meatballs. There were two huge problems with it. The meatballs was unbelievably salty and the spaghetti had very little sauce. The kale salad was bland and the egg yolk is an unnecessary addition.
Foodie paradise in the Village
Nearly impossible to get a table without a reservation weeks ahead of time during peak season, Campo is worth the effort. Pizzas with perfect thin crusts and innovative toppings delight. My teenaged son had been talking about the Beesting pizza for a year. The special risotto with English peas, pancetta and truffle mascarpone was hands down the best I have ever experienced
Hostesses ruin a decent restaurant
Missing the mark for unpretentious and friendly mammoth. Low IQ hostesses cop a big attitude and essentially ruin the vibe of an otherwise solid dinner spot in the village. Newly opened 53 is way better and is 10 steps away. Campo must be the Italian word for poor management and unchecked teenage attitude ruins sure fire money maker of serving slightly overpriced pizza and pasta to hordes of starving and tired skiers! General manager, do your job and train or fire those rude hostesses. You are asleep at the switch.
Fun Place Decent Food
Don't go here if you don't like loud, its a busy loud, fun place. Always packed, be sure to make a reservation or don't even try going here. The food is good, not great, but for a ski town not bad. They do have some interesting items on the menu, the Bee Sting Pizza is very good, and they do a iron pan roasted cauliflower that's amazing. Its loud, its fun, the service and could be better, but its just so crowded. Would definitely go back.
Fun environment to have dinner with friends. I coordinated the dinner for 6 and was concerned there would be options for everyone. Everyone ordered something different and all were happy with their selections. The service was great and although the restaurant was very busy we never felt rushed. I love their brussel sprout appetizer and bee sting pizza. My husband and I shared the caramel dessert -- I would go back just for the dessert!
Not quite sure about this place????
The hostess was pleasant. Pur server started strong & gave us some welcomed insite when we asked him questions. He offered a taster of the soup of the day. It was Cream of Zucchini which was one of the most delicious soups I have ever tasted. The restaurant is very pretty with a rustic/contemporary/industrial combined decor.I felt as if I could have sat in there for hours with a glass of wine. The food other than the soup was all just ok. I have been to some of the finest italian restaurants around the country.This was not definitely not the best. We started with the fried polenta app. The polenta was made well however the truffle mascarpone was slightly bitter. I know truffles can be earthy but the first taste was not too pleasant! After a while this dish did grow on us, but maybe we were just hungry!The Nikki which is a pizza that had cauliflower,very little cauliflower, bacon which in my opinion was pancetta sliced into lardons, no smokey flavor. An egg which was definitely not cooked on the pizza like the way an egg would traditionally be put on a pizza, it was just placed on it. When it came out it did not look too appetizing, although it tasted better than it looked, in my opinion the bacon could have been cooked much more. The worst part of the meal was the fusilli in a pumpkin sauce &fried sage&focaccia bread crumbs.Sounded amazing!But all we got was was overcooked pasta which barely kept it's shape, extremely under seasoned pumpkin sauce, and the bread crumbs were huge soggy croutons. We couldnt find our server as he disappeared once our food was dropped off, and we waited long for the much needed salt, we asked a server, but he did not bring it, we asked another server and 10 mins later it came. Finally our server returned only to drop a check without asking if we wanted dessert.We eventually got his attention again..we ordered the caramel pudding which was ok, nothing special. May return...may not..definitely so many other places in Mammoth to try!
Went to Campo for my birthday and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the overall experience. Food was excellent! Must try the wood fired cauliflower or brussel sprouts. The wood fired pizza is outstanding too! We went back twice in our visit to Mammoth. The only drawback was having to pay for parking in the village, but only $2 for 2 hours. People are willing to give you parking tickets as they leave the village when there's left-over time - seems to be a cool pay-it-forward cultural thing in that lot - we did the same.
Anyway, super cool vibe and our waiters were so friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and really made you feel welcome and important. Best service I've ever experienced.
The food was fantastic~!
Loved the fire roasted cauliflower and the brussel sprouts. We also had the wild boar bolognese - one with the regular pasta and one gluten free. The GF crispy polenta was amazing with the bolognese. My kids loved the margarita pizza & spaghetti and meatballs too! The service was casual and okay. I actually wasn't too sure the server understood my GF needs (not choice). Will certainly return often while in Mammoth for the delicious food!
Food was terrible. We have been here 2x in the past and really enjoyed it. This time the risotto tasted like minute rice with some cream poured over it. Ahi was fishy. Butternut squash soup was bland and tasteless. Overall they are lucky to be in business with that poor quality food. Hopefully the chef was on vacation over the holidays and the food was bad because of that.
