Turns out London is really good at Italian restaurants, and Campania is one of the best around. Its picturesque setting off Columbia Road and old dairy shopfront mean its absolute Insta-heaven. We wouldn’t be surprised if a Campania filter is released soon enough, optimised for cobbles, candlelight and nonna making pasta. The food here is good though, particularly the pasta and mains, and it pretty much suits any occasion, if you can get a booking.
