Lacampagna Ristorante is a longtime BYOB Morristown Italian restaurant is a favorite with many loyal locals who return to enjoy traditional Italian food.
This family run restaurant is owned and operated by Brothers Benito and Sal Capello, both who have acquired their restaurant and culinary skills from their father, John Capello, owner of the more upscale and "Old World" La Catena in Bridgewater.
The Capello brothers oversee a kitchen that uses quality ingredients and many imported Italian products including extra virgin olive oil, aged Parmesan cheese, pastas and buffalo milk mozzarella.
The interior is attractive, although dated, with dimmed lighting , two exposed brick walls, wood chair rails, and walls adorned with a large painting and artwork of scenes of Italy. The tables are set with white linen and china ware. The flooring is carpeted.
Soft background music from deceased Italian singers is provided to enhance the Italian ambiance.
While there is nothing remarkable about the dishes or desserts served, the food is consistently good with generous portions at a reasonable price. The meal begins and ends on a positive note with a serving of warm, crusted bread, and ending on a nice touch with a serving of some complimentary biscotti.
The service is friendly and attentive.
Although they are kid friendly, there is no children's menu.
During the warmer months there is outdoor dining.
