A round up of reviews for Miami's newest Italian restaurant, Campania.

Campania/UrbanDaddy

Just a little more than a month ago, Campania Ristorante & Pizza opened its doors in the Design District. The concept is the latest from Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante partners, Antonio Gallo and Pietro Vardeu, who have owned and operated the popular Miami Beach Italian spot since 2006. So far the reviews for their newest concept ranges from "delicious" to "disappointed." Check out what people are saying so far.

The Happy News: One Yelper summed up their experience as "just delicious" raving about the house made pizzas and adding that "this is what the Design District needed." [Yelp]

The Twitter Buzz: Responding to Miami.com's opening report, a Twitter follower chimed in, seemingly from the restaurant, saying, "Their funghi pizza was truly amazing!! I'm moments away from trying their tiramisu." [Twitter]

The Good News: Speaking of Miami.com, in its 'First Look' writer Sara Liss observes that prices are "neighborhood friendly" and that its "a comfortable spot for affordable pizza and homemade Italian." [Miami.com]

The Not-So-Good News: Another Yelper described his experience as "disappointing," saying he's a fan of the their other locations. Adding that the octopus was "chewy" and pizza was "soft in the middle," and fearful that this, "could this be a case of the cursed/jinxed restaurant location." [Yelp]

The Real Bad News: The harshest Yelp review of the bunch describes the restaurant as a "train wreck," saying that the soup it served was "worse than canned soup," and they found a "very long hair" in one of their pizzas. [Yelp]
