Description

Voted Toronto's best Italian restaurant by Zagat, Campagnolo presents a fresh and daring take on traditional Italian cuisine.

Named Canada's Best New Restaurant by enRoute Magazine after it launched in 2011, Campagnolo follows the authentic recipes of owner and chef Craig Harding's Venetian grandmother. Maintaining a farm-to-table approach, each part of every dish is made in-house.

Having formerly housed a Coffee Time outlet, a redesign of the building by Harding's partner, HGTV's Alexandra Hutchison, transformed it into the casual tradition-based restaurant it is today. Serving delicious food, and boasting an unpretentious atmosphere and friendly service, Campagnolo is a fun and relaxed place to eat and drink.

With a seasonal menu changing to reflect the freshest ingredients and Chef Harding's latest inspiration, this dining experience gives a unique taste of several of Campagnolo's rustic dishes. The seven-course tasting menu is complimented with five wines from the restaurant's reserve list, of both Italian and international origin, to perfectly pair with the dishes served.

Reviews

  • A Happy wife. Great gift experience!

    Bought this luxury gift experience for my wife's birthday.

    Not only was she delighted by the amazing gift, we were blown away by the quality of the food. Every single thing that came out of the kitchen was to die for. It was so well executed I could have eaten everything, again.

    The bone marrow was so elegantly plated and just melted in your mouth - amazing! Even the sides were pure gastronomic heaven.

    I will definitely return here for other special occasions in the future! Thanks to the team here for making a special occasion truly unforgettable.

    I would definitely recommend this gift to a friend.

    Every single dish was amazing

    We went to Campagnolo for the first time on my birthday. No waiting and straight to our tables. Fantastic customer service from the host and waitstaff matched only by TRULY's staff :)

    Every single dish was amazing. I could continue and go on and on about how great each dish and the wine pairings are, and how the ingredients just matched each other beautifully, but it's not required. Just trust the Chef, and every dish that's served from the kitchen will be delicious, delightful and decadent.

    The perfect place for a romantic dinner. I'm secretly hoping I'll get to go again asap!

  • Fantastic Anniversary Gift Experience

    Having received this gift from a friend for our anniversary present, we were excited to try this restaurant, given it's spot in Maclean's magazine Top 50 restaurants in Canada.

    My first impression was excellent - it is a beautiful restaurant, with tasteful and trendy decor and an intimate dining room with big windows.

    Our appetizers were very tasty - I'm not sure if everyone will be receiving the same menu as our, but the Burrata cheese with roasted grapes was a real standout. Who would have thought that cheese and fruit could be this amazing?

    We were only slightly disappointed by the slowish service of the place, but I'm willing to forgive that given the quality of the food.

    Having said that, everything else was amazing and a truly luxury, seamless experience. Thank you!

    A Really Fantastic Restaurant

    Our kids sent us here for a night out. We couldn't have been happier.

    We had a great meal. The burrata is fantastic, the veal carpaccio with tommato sauce is great, the spaghetti alla matriciana and the short ribs are to die for.

    Genuine, homey and rustic Italian cooking at it's best.

    oh and the TRULY team aren't too bad either. They made the experience seamlessly easy! Thank you.

  • Get the Burrata Cheese!

    Everything was delicious, but the burrata cheese with roasted grapes was definitely my favourite.
