Campino's is a great place to go if you have a big group of friends and family to go out with.

Campino's Portuguese & American Cuisine is located at 218 Warren Avenue, East Providence, Rhode Island 02914. Their hours are: weekdays: 11:30am-10:00pm; and weekends: 11:30am-11:00pm.
The City of East Providence is home to many Portuguese restaurants. So what makes Campino's different?
As a frequent diner, I can honestly say that every item on the menu is wonderful. My family and I look forward to our special occasions, which are often celebrated here, as well as a quiet evening out any time of the week.
The food is always hot, fresh, and served with pride in a clean and comfortable environment. Campino's cuisine features old-fashioned family-style cooking from Portugal. It is some of the best authentic Portuguese food I've ever had.

The first time I dined at Campino's Portuguese & American Cuisine Restaurant, I ordered the pan-fried eight-ounce steak topped with an egg and red pepper in a tasty white wine sauce, and a glass of red wine. I was so excited to have another option in the neighborhood for Portuguese food.
When the waiter brought out my plate, I thought he brought me the wrong order because it looked so much better than I expected. It was cooked to perfection, just like you would find in an expensive steakhouse. The meal tasted just as good as it looked.
Campino's Portuguese & American Cuisine is a warm, family-friendly restaurant serving hearty portions of fresh-baked bread and desserts to go alongside freshly prepared entrees. You'll have to ask your server about the dessert options because they change frequently.
The friendly staff will help you navigate the menu if you're not sure what to order, but there are plenty of options that will satisfy just about anyone. This restaurant is a great place to go for lunch or dinner with friends, family, or coworkers.

One thing that strikes me about Campino's is that it looks more like a banquet hall than a restaurant. That lends it an air of elegance compared to some other casual local eateries. If you've ever been to a Portuguese wedding reception, you'll know what I mean.
My family and I have eaten at Campino's multiple times since it opened, and every time, the food was superb. The service is very good and the prices are great. We plan to eat there often.
Not only is the food amazing, but it's a great place for families. It's very family-friendly. The waitstaff is fantastic and very attentive. I highly recommend Campino's to anyone looking for some good homestyle Portuguese food in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. They even serve traditional Portuguese soup.
The menu is varied, with something for everyone, adults, and kids alike, and they have a wide variety of affordable wines. They also have a full bar with plenty of seating for anyone dining alone or with a friend. The bar offers its own menu, featuring sandwiches served with fries, rice, or salad that are not available in the dining room.

I love the food, there's a lot of variety and it's good. There are dishes you don't normally see on menus and that's what I like about this place. They even serve goat cheese. The service is also great. The owners are very friendly and make you feel at home.
