Eat Well. Laugh Often. Live Long.

There’s a restaurant in downtown Naples, FL attracting a ton of attention–from patrons, the most important food critics in the world.

I’ve been there twice and can say the place has great energy, good food and good service.

While I’m motivated to talk about Campiello here, others have been inspired to paint the scene.

Here’s how the owners describe their venture:

Like Italy, its inspiration, Campiello is a study in contrasts. The restaurant is both urban and rural, sophisticated and casual, old-world and strikingly new.

Campiello is owned and operated by D’Amico & Partners, one of the nation’s preeminent restaurant developers and management companies. Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the privately-owned company operates 18 Italian restaurants, plus a catering division.
