Favorite restaurants: Campobello’s Cucina Italiana

Campobello’s Cucina Italiana, located at 9334 Transit Rd. (at the corner of Casey Rd.) in East Amherst, is my favorite place to go during Local Restaurant Week, which happens twice a year in the Buffalo area. Why is it so great? In addition to being great food, you also get enough food for two more meals easily!
Restaurant Week at Campobello’s means you get an appetizer or dessert, soup or salad and a full entrée for (this year) $20.13 – that means my dad and I can splurge on Chicken Parmigiana, which includes a piece of chicken that is, in the words of David Venable, “big as ya head!” and (in my guess-timation) a pound of pasta (the Angel Hair portion looks like at least that much!). The options for Restaurant Week also included Veal Parmigiana, Lasagna, Manicotti and Fettuccini Alfredo, among others.
Can’t – or didn’t – make it to Restaurant Week? They offer the same deal every week, Monday through Thursday, for $25 – still an awesome value.
In addition to great pasta dishes (I also highly recommend the Pasta Parmigiana), Campobello’s also offers up the usual suspects at an Italian restaurant – pizzas, subs, chicken wings and fingers, calzones and Friday fish frys. The pizza is awesome, with homemade pizza dough and a sauce that I think is the best in town.
