Campagnolo in Lakeside

Campagnolo’s is an Italian restaurant in the Lakeside Centre plaza on the southwest corner of Glades and Boca Rio. Lake many plazas Lakeside is long and the restaurant was hard to find at first. It is in the westmost section. If you enter from Glades make an immediate right.

Customer base at 5:30 averaged 80 years old. That might be for the phenomenal early bird special. $11.99 for salad, entree, dessert and coffee or tea.
There is a main dining room with an area in the back suitable for a large group.

We were told the crowd was younger in the bar area but that’s not what we saw.

Salads were fine. One of us had Caesar and the other mixed greens.

Great service – Drinks were refilled when half full. They hustled to get us Parmesan cheese and they didn’t hold back on the quantity of it.
I had the Chicken Marsala, which was solid with lots of mushrooms that were obviously fresh. Partner had spaghetti and meatballs. The meatballs were fine but not to our taste. The marinara was a little sweet for my taste but partner liked it.

I had the world’s longest and thinnest piece of cheesecake – it was very tasty. Partner reported the cannoli was also good.

Overall, nothing was spectacular but it was mostly quite good. For the money this is one of the best deals we’ve seen in all of South Florida.
