I don't usually rate restaraunts but this had to be known. I don't understand how there is even a 3.5 rating right now. This food was horrible, and the service was horrible. I went here with my family, and they did not enjoy their food either. I had the lunch "chicken" breast with angel hair pasta and marsala with mushrooms. When I ordered this I read it off the menu, and yet for some reason the waiter was asking me if I wanted the marsala with mushrooms on my chicken or on my pasta? I was like... how do you usually serve it? I mean really... The "chicken" was like fast food chicken it was completely processed and didn't even have the consistancy of a real chicken breast (ridiculous considering this plate was 10$) and the mushrooms must have been poured straight out of a can onto my chicken. The whole mess tasted like dirty dish water and looked like it too. I took two bites of it. The waiter was never around when we needed him and we waited 20 minutes for him to come take our food order. Then once everyone else was done eating (or barely eating since it was practically inedible) when the waiter came to take my plate he asked if I was done and I said yes, then he asked me if I didn't like it since I didn't eat it and I told him no, I didn't like it. Maybe I just believe in good customer service but if someone gets a whole plate, tells the waiter they didn't like it and didn't eat any of it then they should not have to pay for it? I mean really I was not expecting it to taste like that. I actually cringe thinking about it.
just plane bad – its crap really it it is the people are retards and its just bad if you want good pizza go to louies or divinos there the better places to go if you like really good pizza just me
Love campisis – Goodness I'm starting to think Citysearch is run by Morons for allowing these bad posts without some kind of filter. Love Campisis. Good family good food!
Gross – I tried Campisi's pizza because all my friends swear by it...I'm now in the process of reevaluating these friendships because this was the worst muck I've ever been served out of a cardboard box.
First off...it smells odd....the toppings (extra cheese, beef, sausage, pepperoni, mushroom, black and green olives, onions) I can only describe them as slimy bits and chunks...with the runniest cheese I've ever had the misfortune of eating. (seemed like they poured left over fondue cheese all over the pizza) ...the sauce is sickeningly sweet...and the crust (which I use the term "crust" loosely--saying something had a crust implies it might have at least a hint of crisp to it)....the crust was soggy and limp almost as if it sat in dirty dishwater for a few seconds before it was dumped in the box....gah...and if that isn't enough....they cut this thing into like 30 thin strips that are so limp you can barely pick them up out of the box....why would someone do this and try to call it pizza?
My boyfriend who can pretty much stomach eating anything...for example he will mix canned tuna fish with plain rice and soy sauce and call it sushi....so you see he does not exactly come to the table with a discriminating pallet...even he, Mr. Canned Tuna Fish Sushi couldn't choke down this mess.
I agree wholeheartedly with my fellow poster that compared this muck to a clothes-hanger abortion.
It's so gross, we need a new word for gross.
How does this place even stay in business? – My girlfriend likes their horrible pizza that tastes worse than any frozen pizza I've ever had, so once in a while I will tolerate a bite or two. I have tried to like many things
on this place's menu, and each time I am even more grossed out than before.
So last nite I agreed to try the fettucine alfredo and we had that and a green pepper pizza, along with one a piece of chocolate cheesecake delivered.
The always bad pizza was cold, and the fettucine alfredo was HORRIBLE, but I was starving, so I doused it with parmesan cheese and pepper and ate as many bites as I could stand and vowed never to put myself thru the torture of eating any of the so-called food from this place again.
In the middle of the nite I woke up totally sick and spent the rest of the nite in the bathroom. I have no idea why this place is so well known and has been around so long. This place has NO CLUE on how to make good Italian food. It's called an "Egyptian" restaurant so maybe that explains it. Seriously, they don't even know how to make decent tomato sauce.
Try Campania if you want real and delicious Italian pizza. Actually you would probably enjoy a frozen pizza you bought at 7-11 more than this food. It is truly awful. Even the cheesecake sucked. I'm really bummed that I have to even give this place one star. It does not deserve it and should just do us all a favor and close down. Man I miss Cremona.
EAT SOMEWHERE ELSE!!! – I wish I had read some the somber reviews here before I asked for a delivery of what amounted to be a coat hanger abortion version of pizza. I should have bailed out of the phone call when I found out they don't sell mozzarella sticks, but being hungry I was desperate and ordered some fried raviolis and a pizza. Delivery was prompt (one bonus and the only reason for 1 star rating) but as I opened the door and saw the delivery guy standing before me holding a paper bag and a SMALL RECTANGULAR box I thought "Hmmm, shouldn't he be holding a big square box?" I accepted the delivery, sat down, opened the box and saw it. Instead of a nice round pizza I got some weird oval pizza that had crust about as thin as a ritz cracker with a scant smattering of cheese. This thing looked like a giant scab peeled off of the knuckle from the jolly green giant. Perhaps the fried ravioli would be better... nope! Upon opening the container I found 6 little pan fried burnt puffy squares that appeared as though I got the scrapings from the bottom of an old can of "Chef Boy-R-Dee". I choked down some of the ravioli and I could only eat 2 pieces of the pizza before chucking the whole lot in the garbage like a prom night dumpster baby. Do your self a favor... order from Dominoes or Pizza Hut; at least you will get something that resembles food. To comment on the "yankee" comment I read here: Yes I am a "yankee". One of the reasons the north won the war is because we do things alot better above of the mason dixon line; aside from fighting better (Thats right, the south will not rise again!) we make far better pizza!!!
Best Pizza Ever...not just for native Texans either! – This pizza is not your commercial pizza and I think that's what the yankee's on here don't understand.....and NO IT'S NOT EGYPTIAN FOOD! Definatley out of the mouth of a yankee.
None the less you MUST try it!!!
Seriously fab...great atmosphere!!!
Try the pizza!!
Grittiest Clams In Dallas – If you're going to go to Campisi's, go to the one on Mockingbird. Otherwise, just go to Olive Garden. If you go to Campisi's on Mockingbird, order the pizza, it's awesome! Don't order the pasta with clam sauce. It's inedible.
Nasty, gagging food. Ick. – This place smelled like dirty feet and the food didn't taste much better. The manicotti , which is my favorite Italian dish, gagged me, I was so disappointed and grossed out. It tasted like it had been sitting out on the kitchen counter for a few months and had gone bad. The salad was rubbery and foul-smelling and the bread was stale and had the consistency of having been reheated several times before making it to our table. Definitely will not be going there again or recommending it to anyone, unless maybe I don't like the person, then maybe I'd send them there.
FOUL – Went there once and will never go back again. The alfredo was disgusting and tasted like the stuff you buy in a can, the cheap stuff. The place looked dirty and dingy. I was waiting for something on four legs to start crawling out of the kitchen any moment. Can?t believe that this guy took me on a date there. Dirty disgusting and foul. Oh and had a weird musty smell too. Salad was the kind that you got back in grade school. Dishes were dirty and the whole atmosphere was dark and smelly. I would not recommend for any one to go. YUCK
