Food was very average for the very upscale prices. Extensive wine list, but again very very I stress very well marked up. Again, I do not mind a good bottle of wine, but the Barolo we had was more than tripled up. So what you would get in a very good Italien restaurent, will cost you about 50-60% more at Il Campari Centro. I also have to stress that this was my second visit. After our first visit, we were frankly disappointed however, we decided to give it another go last time in Montreal. Needless to say, both visits were equally unspectacular, so last time I visit this place. Although the food was just ok, one expect a much better dining experience for the price.
Very disappointing! Three of us went here as a birthday treat. No-one welcomed us, just a brusque showing to our table. The stone-faced waiter asked what we would like to drink. My teetotal friend asked for water & we were brought a bottle of mineral water, for which we were later charged $8. Two of us shared a bottle of Due Torre merlot, which cost $50 plus tax!! We ordered starters of soup of the day (Minestrone) & Salmon Tartare, main courses of Risotto Porcini, Risotto with vegetables & veal scallopine. The place was less than half-full, & waiters were rushing around looking very busy. After more than one hour, we had not received any food. My friend asked the waiter when we could expect to eat, & 10 minutes later, the starters finally appeared. The soup & Salmon Tartare were acceptable. After another wait of 30 minutes, my friend caught the waiter & gestured at his watch, to which the waiter replied "I'm not the cook!" Finally the main courses arrived. The Risotto Porcini was gluey & excessively salted. The veal scallopini was small but tender, & the vegetable risotto was acceptable. The staff seems to have perfected the art of ignoring the customer, never making eye contact. Needless to say, we did not order dessert, just coffee which was brought very quickly at this point, along with the bill for the overpriced meal. The food alone cost $116, which is way overboard for what we had. We won't be going back.
My overall experience in this restaurant was horrible. The waiter sat us down before they offered us cushions for the cold iron chairs. After my girlfriend & I ordered (waiting time of more than 10 minutes), our waiter asked us if we wanted anything to drink, which is normal in most restaurant. Not being such a wine person, I decided to go for the traditional "Water's fine." Throughout my whole life, I have never imagined a comeback to my comment, "Mineral water? Right away." Two minutes later, the waiter scurried back to us with a big bottle of "mineral" water, which cost us 8$ more than common free tap water. When the food arrived in these huge plates, there are two things I noticed: 1. Portion was too small. I had cannelloni, which they offered three on the plate, each with a size no longer than 5 inches. For 24$, I have to say that this is a scam! It did not have any magical or new taste to it; they tasted just like the cannelloni fast food restaurant served. 2. They added a new leaf on top of my food for decoration. Nice little addition, except for the live caterpillar that is still gnawing on the leaf. When my plate arrived, I watched the little green bug writhing in pain as the heat of the tomato sauce engulfs it. I do not know too much Italian food, but I do not think they serve & eat live insects... I pointed it out to the waiter who appears to be clueless until he saw a live caterpillar on his customer's food. He just picked up the plate emotionless & returned it back to me with the leaf gone. Now, looking back at it, how did a live insect pass from the eyes of the cook, then marathoned its way to the hands of a waiter, who skillfully placed the plate in front of me without noticing a light green being moving around in the center of a reddish tomato sauce background? I have to say, this is the first & last time I am going to this restaurant & I highly advise anyone with a hungry stomach not to eat here.
