Restaurant review: Campagnolo Roma

on

It’s been a while since I frequented Campagnolo Roma.  It’s a small casual place featuring rustic italian style cuisine.

We arrived at noon on a Sunday, and were seated immediately by the windows.

We ordered the Roman Hot Chicken

This is a marinated piece of boneless chicken, battered and deep-fried to a crunch.  It’s dressed in olive oil infused with salt and cracked black pepper, served with fresh bread & butter pickles on the side, and a sunny side up fried organic egg.  This was really good chicken.  It’s crunchy on the outside, but moist and tender and properly seasoned on the inside.  The pickles provide a nice acidic bite to counter the fattiness of the chicken.

We also ordered a margherita pizza.

This is not quite a Neapolitan pizza, but it’s very close.  It’s a hand stretched pizza, topped with crushed tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, torn basil, and drizzled with olive oil.

This was a good pizza.  But it wasn’t as good as I remember.  I remember the pizza at Campagnolo being better before.  I found the tomato sauce a little bland.  It lacked seasoning, and it lacked the light acidity that I expected.  But the crust is crisp from edge to center, and holds up well to the weight of the toppings.

The room is a decent size, but slightly crowded, and rather dark on the inner parts of the space.

Our server was pleasant and courteous, and quite attentive.
