We happened to be strolling along 5th avenue looking for great food at a great price. We found it here! There was a "Happy Hour" special of pizza and a glass of wine for $8. Fresh herbs and full of flavour! Ordered a large salad to share. It was a fair size for 2 to share. Wonderfully tasty oil dressing on melt in your mouth spring leaves. Great little restaurant! Service was wonderful as well!

4 of us ordered a bottle of wine, 2 pizzas and apps. We got the wine. 1/2 an hour later that was still all we had with no explanation, no one stopping by our table - and it wasn't very busy. we couldn't get anyone's attention. 45 minutes into our wait, a waiter who we'd never seen before put down a bowl of olives. almost an hour from the time we sat down the owner came by and said our pizzas had been burned, but fresh ones were coming. we asked about our appetizers and they had been forgotten completely. nothing but the olives were offered. when the pizzas finally came - we never got the appetizers - they were such a disappointment i barely bothered to eat them. bland, heavy and doughy. really one of the poorest experiences in a restaurant ever. only the olives were not on our check. never again.

I almost didn't write this post because I don't want you guys to read this and crowd up one of my favorite places!

The Good: Great service, actually a little over attentive at times. But a welcome change to the normal "we'll get to you" restaurants, the owner and staff were very friendly. The Bad: the atmosphere the place was designed a little to serile, lacking emotion or direction - a play it save design, having back aching bench seating. The ugly: food was mediocre, the fresh pizza was undercooked dough with scant toppings, the pasta - average at best. At prices that makes us wonder if we had ordered pizza or filet mignon?

Finally another great (and real) Italian restaurant in the neighborhood. As an Italian I can assure you that Campo is as authentic as it gets. It's real regional Italian food with a twist--by a twist I don't mean "fusion", ...I mean that they do some interesting mixes such as risotto but with farro instead of arborio or carnaroli rice. Imported DOP/DOC ingredients (meaning with origin control and certification), carefully cooked all with the right amount of sauce, salt and especially cook time (referring especially to the pasta/gnocchi). The pizza has just the right amount of cheese and sauce/toppings. My friends, pizza is not supposed to be covered in cheese and oozing all over the place. The pasta is not supposed to be floating in sauce...it's supposed to be lightly covered in it. ...etc Also, Campo's pizza is Roman style meaning slightly thicker and not circular, so don't expect a super thin round pizza. (it's actually great to get 2 or 3 and share them) On top of that, the owner Andrea is a real gentleman who loves good food and loves what he does. He will explain to you all the ingredients, where they come from and what all the acronyms (referring to origin and certifications) mean. He's got some great wines and everything is reasonably priced. It has become our go to restaurant in the neighborhood and to be truthful in NY. We never venture into Manhattan for Italian as the food at Campo de Fiori and Al Di La across the street are the two best in my opinion (and most relaxed) Italian places we've found in NY so far. Bravo Andrea.

My boyfriend and I sampled Campo de Fiori's pizza at the 5th Ave street fair after walking by the storefront for the past few months. We we mega-impressed -- great taste, delicious sauce, crispy crust etc. etc. Tonight we decided to place an order for delivery after our great street fair experience. 45 minutes later, a 4-slice (small, square), cheese/beef pizza arrived cold. For $16. Definitely not worth it.

I love their pizza! The first time I had it I wasn't convinced, but i think my pallet just wasn't used to this class of pie. The dough is divine and the sauce is savory. The taste is unique, as this isn't your hole in the wall pizza joint. Finish it off with their espresso and die a happy death.
