2014 Best Upscale Italian, West

La Campania

The western ’burbs have no shortage of fine Italian restaurants, none as transporting—or as lovely—as this Waltham mainstay. The artfully prepared cuisine (tagliolini with fresh lobster and shrimp, duck-confit-and-fig pizza) and warm, rustic atmosphere (fresh flowers, wooden beams, hanging pots and pans) offer a window to southern Italy by way of Main Street.
