Campobello Bistro Ratings and Reviews
For some reason every Italian restaurant in Anchorage has this 80's mafia ring vibe, super dated decor and ambiance. In that, Campbello doesn't disappoint. How all that doesn't matter becaus the food was fantastic. The calamari appetizer is lightly sautéed and served with wonderfully dressed greens and a spicy sauce on the side. Best I ever had. The halibut was cooked perfectly, juicy and covered in a rich seafood cream sauce. Nice wine list. The service was a little slow, we had to wait a bit for our check to come despite there only being a couple other tables. However since it was a special occasion meal, we didn't mind languishing a bit between courses, chatting and drinking wine. Overall, I had a great meal and a great time and will be going back to try the fresh pasta!
As always, great food in a comfortable atmosphere, with wonderful service. I've been a regular here for years and enjoy bringing business associates from the big cities in the lower 48. I've never had a visitor leave without saying it's one of their best experiences. One of the associates I brought was a return customer who demanded i bring him here before he left town. He had the fresh Halibut, which was very good. The veal saltimboca was excellent, as was the calamari steak. Everyone had a great time.
We both chose the Filet and it was amazing. Everything was cooked to perfection. I had the Tiramisu and he had the Crème Brule for dessert and it was magnificent. The staff was very cheery and helpful, and the service was great.
We will definitely be returning.
Had the roasted chicken salad for dinner and it was delicious. Our server took the time to listen to what we wanted. Since this was a biz meeting, we were grateful for limited interruptions. Food's always good. When the king salmon is in season, get it here. (fried calamari - molto bene!)
My Family and myself decided to try someplace that we hadn't been for Valentines dinner and I have been to Campobello for lunch but never dinner, the restaurant was quite busy but they got us in very close to our reservation time and the meal was very good!
They do not have a full bar but the wine and beer list is quite good and we enjoyed the evening very much!
I LOVE Campobello. The best thing to me was the service I received from the female waitress. Unfortunately she hasn't been waiting tables. The new younger male server is nice, but the past two times he's waited on us, we haven't had the best experience. We are constantly waiting long periods of time for him to get water, appetizers, soup, entrees, bill, all of it. Maybe he needs some more training or extra help in the evenings by having another waiter?
Campbello Bistro is one of Anchorage's premier restaurants.
However using the Open Table App is an exercise. It leaves a lot to be desired. I plan to just call restaurants in the future because use of the App doesn't work most of the time. It's time for them to acquire a Web Master who understands the intuitive process of any web site. Because their current Web Nasted doesn't have a clue !!!
The food was ok. Should have been better for a $150 bill for 3 meals. Seafood Florentine for $29 had 3 shrimp & 3 scallops that was it. Not worth it, plain tasting and very hot (steaming). Cod special was explained as boring and nothing special for $29. Veal was good. Desserts, were OK but not worth what you pay. The kitchen was loud with customers talking with the cooks. I don't see going back again for a third time. I was very disappointed with their food. Unfortunately you can find better tasting tasting for $15 a plate around town. Not many places serve really good food at $30 a plate. Going try Southside Bistro tonight hope to have better luck. If it doesn't taste good I will start going to Denny's 😩 At least I walk in ready to be disappointed because I know what I am getting $100 cheaper. It just sad you can find a great sit down meal for $150. Save your money.
We came for an early-ish New Year's Eve dinner. Everything we had was delicious. King Crab Cakes appetizer with aioli. Delicious vinaigrette salad with toasted pecans. I had the seafood pasta fra diavlo with spicy marinara sauce. My husband had roasted king salmon, and loved it. And tiramisu, best I've had in a long time. Service was friendly and well paced. Very nice!
I had never heard of this place before and was looking for a good place to eat for my sister's birthday. I came across this and decided to go for it. My sister had already been here before a long time ago and remembered loving it. She still does and I do too! Everything was fabulous. From the ambience to the staff to the food. Highly recommend!
I've eaten here many times over the last 20 years and always found it enjoyable. My only warning concerns sitting near the entry door. They have an arctic entry, but the inner door doesn't close automatically so if you're in the front row of tables, it can get too cold in the winter. Especially when people enter or leave and don't close the inner door behind them. Make sure you get a table in the side room or in the wing.
Wonderful meal. The duck and filet mignon were great, wine portion was above average. Looks can be deceiving since restaurant is in the middle of a row of businesses, but inside very warm and cozy. We were very impressed. Had it not been for a gift certificate, we may not have known about the place. Will visit again!
Reservations are a must as this place fills up quickly. Went for a business lunch on 12-16. Service was prompt and courteous. Drinks were kept full. All of the entrees were very tasty. Each entree comes with your choice of Caesar or balsamic salad. Our table went with the Caesar. This one was very heavy on the garlic. All in attendance commented on it. It was the only flavor you could pick up. Not even a subtle hint of the anchovies or citrus. I would steer toward the other salad next visit. Overall a pretty decent dining experience.
