An order of the Classic Margherita from Campelli’s Pizza.

   When it comes to pizza, most people look for a great crust, lots of flavor, and an amazing combination of toppings. Campelli’s is the perfect restaurant to find the qualities that most want in their pizza.

  Located on Foothills blvd. in Roseville, Campelli’s is a pizza goldmine in the center of the plaza.

  As soon as I walked in there was an aroma of fresh pizza baking in the oven.

  The restaurant was designed in  an appealing rustic, yet modern interior which makes it stand out from others.

  The menu contained a variety of foods and different kinds of pizzas.

  You can make your own pizza with chosen toppings or you can order one of their original combinations that they offer.

   I ordered the Margherita pizza which was made up of a very crispy thin crust lathered in a light olive and oregano sauce, red sauce, melted mozzarella, fresh basil, tomatoes, and balsamic vinegar to add a special touch of wow.

  The staff was very kind and informed about all of their combinations and ingredients.

  I even got to watch my pizza be created in front of my eyes as I sat at a counter in front of the pizza oven.


   As I waited for my pizza I was able to enjoy clever portraits of well known paintings with a twist, such as the Mona Lisa eating pizza.

  The restaurant had a warm and welcoming vibe, as well as a lot of space to be seated anywhere you desire.

  My pizza was finished in less than 15 minutes and as I was handed the pizza box the baker didn’t hesitate to ask me if I wanted any parmesan cheese or sauce to go.

  As soon as I opened the box, my eyes lit up.

  The pizza looked extremely appetizing.

  All the toppings were neatly placed and the cheese was perfectly melted. The crust was also baked to crispy perfection.

  After a bite, I was completely satisfied.

  There was a perfect amount of each topping, with each slice bursting with flavor.

  The pizza was more on the pricey side but I would definitely say it was worth it because of its taste.

  Campelli’s is the perfect place to enjoy an authentic, freshly made, brick oven baked box of goodness.
