According to the Real Deal :

“Named after the region in southern Italy of the same name, Campania said its new restaurant concept will focus on the cuisine of Naples and the Amalfi Coast with artisanal, made-to-order pizzas, calzones and pastas. The restaurant will also feature a custom pizza oven, which was created to the team’s specifications in Italy and shipped to Miami. In addition, it will have an onsite marketplace where patrons can purchase fresh buffalo mozzarella and burrata that will be made in-house daily. ”

 

According to Miami Tourist Guide :

“Campania’s décor reflects the rustic and casual feel of its menu, with distressed off-white chairs and tables filling the spacious dining room, as well as an intricate wine wall showcasing the extensive wine collection. Pearl white mosaic pillars and black and white framed photos of the Campania region also complement the restaurant’s warm tones. The dining room is illuminated by large windows, washing the restaurant in a warm glow for the lunch and early-dinner crowd. Teardrop-shaped lamps hang above Campania’s hi-top marble bar and subtle overhead lighting in the dining room create a warm and welcoming atmosphere in the evening. The custom-made pizza oven is tiled in a blue and white mosaic to balance Campania’s sleek marketplace design, which has several glass showcases filled with freshly-made products available for purchase.”

 

According to New Times :

“A custom-made pizza oven, imported from Italy, is the restaurant’s focal point from which fresh to order pies will be fired at rapid speeds. Think marinara (tomato, garlic, and oregano; $10), capricciosa (tomato, mozzarella, artichokes, ham, black olives, and mushrooms; $14), and ortolana (tomato, mozzarella, grilled zucchini, eggplant, and cherry tomatoes; $14). Campania’s eponymous signature pie is a white pizza with mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, arugula, and prosciutto ($15). If you like to fold your pizza into a pocket, you’ll be particularly fond of the calzone selection, which includes the marechiaro (mozzarella, tomato, ricotta cheese, salami, pepper, and basil; $13). Other rustic Italian offerings include shrimp wrapped in kataifi pasta ($16); arancini with mozzarella in carrozza, potato croquettes, and zeppoline, frittatine ($16); and steamed mussels with oregano and white wine ($12). Mains include veal milanesa with mozzarella and basil ($24); wood-fired shrimps, calamari and rock fish ($24); and baked branzino ($24). ” written by Carla Torres.
