When I hear someone talking about Campagnolo I think of one of those deja vu day dreams that you can’t stop fixating on. After months of seeing the name pop up on food blogs, twitter conversations (read: food porn gossip) and written about by the countries top food writers…needless to say it has been on my mind for some time. I made a reservation when I returned from my Latin American Adventure in early January.
The service at Campagnolo exactly as it should be. The drinks list comes from a bartender and mixologist with great skill so do ensure you order a beverage that resonates with you upon arrival.
Everything we ate was exemplary. I even had a quick photo shoot in the bathroom to showcase their funky yellow wallpaper! As we walked past the bar towards the front door with our bellies full two of the staff looked up and thanked us for coming. I stood for a brief moment and smiled. Campagnolo gives me warm fuzzies.
