Located at the corner of Dundas and Euclid, Campagnolo (@Campagnolo_) is warm and cozy. A very romantic atomsophere, a great date night spot in my opinion.
The open kitchen at Campagnolo. Hopefully I'll get to sit at the chef's rail next time.

Drizzled with oil, the smooth and creamy burrata sat atop a warm toasted baguette, surrounded by sweet roasted grapes. All that may sound simple, but man, was it ever delicious. The roasted bone marrow with oxtail and plum marmalade was also stellar; the richness of the marrow was perfectly balanced by the sweetness / tartness of the plum and the savoury tender oxtail. All the entrees were excellent; the roasted sunchoke agnolotti and the braised lamb strozzapreti were standouts for me. The light and plump sunchoke agnolotti alongside creamy parsley root puree was amazing; it was light yet the entire dish was packed with flavour. We also loved the strozzapreti with its tender braised lamb served in a thick tomato sauce. As for dessert, I still can't get the salted caramel budino off my mind. The velvety pudding with a hint of salt really went well with the caramelized sugar, which was slightly bittersweet. The light and crunchy meringue on top was marvelous.
