Our family enjoys Spatola's Italian menu at least twice a week! Mohammed & his staff are the best! Salads & sandwiches are also great! Cindy & Family

You really need to add Taormina's.

Thank you Mary - It's been added!

La Campagnola may be good food, but the family who owns it makes the expierence HORRIBLE! We went for my 30th birthday. My wife planned ahead, paid for a set menu, got advanced orders to help them out and not only did they rush us out, but they were rude to the guests, rude to me and most of all destroyed years of me bragging about the place. It was loyal customers like my parents and others that helped keep them open the first few years, and as they grew more popular, the service and quality was exchanged for volume of business. The owners berate employees in front of the guests. The family talks poorly about staff that work for them, and the screaming matches from the kitchen made my decision easy. ANYONE BUT La Campagnola.

Agreed regarding LaCampagnola.. the mother of that family makesit a horrible dining experiece for all.

Where is this place?
Bill Henning March 27, 2012 at 09:36 PM
Also, agreed. Some friends gave me a coupke gift certificates and praised the place. They sat us down next to the kitchen door. All we heard was foul mouth arguing with unpleasent service. Never did go back and use the other gift certificate.

Other than that a lot of great choices. Had some great meals at Fiore's and Ristorante Toscano's and the kids & I enjoy Main Street Pizza.

I also have to agree about La Campagnola. Great food but terrible experience every time I went there. Never going back. Taormina's is amazing. fantastic food at a great price.

Really disappointed with Toscanos, From waiter who was wearing a dirty T-shirt to 3 plates of pasta and 1 chicken dish being 70$. chicken piccata over cooked, Gnocchi with meat sauce mushy and topped w/half lb of unseasoned ground meat, linguine w/ clams too aldente with a can of Giant brand clams dumped on them, linguine w/ butter and garlic just swimming in a lake of butter. may be the worst Italian restaurant I have ever been to...just awful. Will never return

La Campagnola hands down!!
sophia March 29, 2012 at 10:08 PM
I have been going to la Campagnola since the beginning. The food is the best. The family is amazing as well. The mother doesn't speak English well and is so misunderstood. Running a business is very hard. If you haven't been there in a while. Give it another chance you will be surprised. La Campagnola is my vote

Fasageo's in Sellersville is wonderful! They have a stuffed veal with jumbo lump crabmeat on top that is delicious. It is quaint old inn run by family, not a chain restaurant. Lots of variety from pastas to filet mignon. They also have alot of craft beers and DT on tap.
Jonelle Buckley March 30, 2012 at 01:29 PM
La Campagnola would have 100 votes from me! Running a business especially with family members is no easy feat. The food is delicious and we have closed the place down many times and the family has never rushed us. You can't tell me that in your day to day work environment you haven't raised your voice or gotten upset with a co-worker. In a restaurant it just so happens there is an audience. Definitely give them another chance.

Have not been back to LaCapanola for 2 years because of the rude mother. there are no excuses for her behavior. she is in the wrong business. definitely does not have to deal with nor appreciate her customers. I for 1 have more respect for myself then to suffer abuse for the sake of a good meal.

I love Ariana's! They are friendly, and the food is always consistently good.

I understand exactly what you are saying because my husband and I had a similar experience here, and it was no misunderstanding. I work with the public every day, and acting out or losing your temper in front of customers is unprofessional and unacceptable. There is no excuse for it. If this place were in an area where they had more competition, and the expectations were higher, they'd never get away with such bad service. I'd never go back to this place again because there are lots of other places that I can go where the food is better, and they appreciate my business.
