coolest restaurant in Dallas. Been going there for over 40 years and is always fun. Many famous people have walked thru those doors and continue to do so to this day.

When the Byron Nelson was played in Dallas, it was neat to see Arnie, Lee and Jack walk in and go to the club. Love the pizza, crab claws and the hamburger. Yea, they make a great hamburger.

Old school Ay-talian, pizza/pasta/Parm meats

Dallas take on pizza in an old style pizza joint staffed by waiters that would never leave the cannoli in the car *wink*.
I always create my own toppings pizza: garlic with anchovies. No one ever asks for a slice.

I don't usually rate restaraunts but

I don't usually rate restaraunts but this had to be known. I don't understand how there is even a 3.5 rating right now. This food was horrible, and the service was horrible. I went here with my family, and they did not enjoy their food either. I had the lunch ""chicken"" breast with angel hair pasta and marsala with mushrooms. When I ordered this I read it off the menu, and yet for some reason the waiter was asking me if I wanted the marsala with mushrooms on my chicken or on my pasta? I was like... how do you usually serve it? I mean really... The ""chicken"" was like fast food chicken it was completely processed and didn't even have the consistancy of a real chicken breast (ridiculous considering this plate was 10$) and the mushrooms must have been poured straight out of a can onto my chicken. The whole mess tasted like dirty dish water and looked like it too. I took two bites of it. The waiter was never around when we needed him and we waited 20 minutes for him to come take our food order. Then once everyone else was done eating (or barely eating since it was practically inedible) when the waiter came to take my plate he asked if I was done and I said yes, then he asked me if I didn't like it since I didn't eat it and I told him no, I didn't like it. Maybe I just believe in good customer service but if someone gets a whole plate, tells the waiter they didn't like it and didn't eat any of it then they should not have to pay for it? I mean really I was not expecting it to taste like that. I actually cringe thinking about it.



Campisi's The Eygptian

Seriously, I am not sure where the populace of the reviewers ate at or what they were dinning on. I have eaten at THIS DALLAS LANDMARK since I was a child, I first met Joe, when I was a teenager. Upon graduating from High School, and starting Under Graduate School, the weekends that I would come home from school I was fortunate on Friday evenings to dine with Joe at his table in the back of the old store. The food was incredible then just as it remains today!

Goodness I'm starting to think Citysearch is run by Morons for allowing these bad posts without some kind of filter. Love Campisis. Good family good food!

I tried Campisi's pizza because all my friends swear by it...I'm now in the process of reevaluating these friendships because this was the worst muck I've ever been served out of a cardboard box.

First smells odd....the toppings (extra cheese, beef, sausage, pepperoni, mushroom, black and green olives, onions) I can only describe them as slimy bits and chunks...with the runniest cheese I've ever had the misfortune of eating. (seemed like they poured left over fondue cheese all over the pizza) ...the sauce is sickeningly sweet...and the crust (which I use the term ""crust"" loosely--saying something had a crust implies it might have at least a hint of crisp to it)....the crust was soggy and limp almost as if it sat in dirty dishwater for a few seconds before it was dumped in the box....gah...and if that isn't enough....they cut this thing into like 30 thin strips that are so limp you can barely pick them up out of the box....why would someone do this and try to call it pizza?

My boyfriend who can pretty much stomach eating anything...for example he will mix canned tuna fish with plain rice and soy sauce and call it you see he does not exactly come to the table with a discriminating pallet...even he, Mr. Canned Tuna Fish Sushi couldn't choke down this mess.

I agree wholeheartedly with my fellow poster that compared this muck to a clothes-hanger abortion.

It's so gross, we need a new word for gross.

How does this place even stay in business?

My girlfriend likes their horrible pizza that tastes worse than any frozen pizza I've ever had, so once in a while I will tolerate a bite or two. I have tried to like many things
on this place's menu, and each time I am even more grossed out than before.

So last nite I agreed to try the fettucine alfredo and we had that and a green pepper pizza, along with one a piece of chocolate cheesecake delivered.

The always bad pizza was cold, and the fettucine alfredo was HORRIBLE, but I was starving, so I doused it with parmesan cheese and pepper and ate as many bites as I could stand and vowed never to put myself thru the torture of eating any of the so-called food from this place again.

In the middle of the nite I woke up totally sick and spent the rest of the nite in the bathroom. I have no idea why this place is so well known and has been around so long. This place has NO CLUE on how to make good Italian food. It's called an ""Egyptian"" restaurant so maybe that explains it. Seriously, they don't even know how to make decent tomato sauce.

Try Campania if you want real and delicious Italian pizza. Actually you would probably enjoy a frozen pizza you bought at 7-11 more than this food. It is truly awful. Even the cheesecake sucked. I'm really bummed that I have to even give this place one star. It does not deserve it and should just do us all a favor and close down. Man I miss Cremona.



Always Delicious

This restaurant has never disappointed me. No matter what I've ordered, I've always left fat and happy and so have my dining companions. Unless you hate Italian food, this is the most romantic Italian restaurant and seems to be happily stuck in the good old days of mobsters and gun-molls. Go. Eat. Smile. Keep an eye out for Tony Soprano and try to be seated far enough away to avoid any overspray in the case of a hit.



Really Cool Place!

I've dined in the Egyptian maybe 30 or 40 times. Though Italian is their specialty, they also have an excellent variety and quality of conventional foods. I have hardly ever been in this restaurant when there was not a crowd, especially on weekends. Often the owner, Carlton (Corky) Campisi, son of the original owner Joseph Campisi, can be found in there visiting with local business people or local sports figures. In addition it is not at all uncommon to see any of Corky's three daughters (Amber, Gina or Tara) dining or hanging out at the bar. Some of my favorite dishes at the Egyptian are the Italian Steak, Veal with Angel Hair Pasta, their awesome spagetti and meat balls, and of course they have the best Pizza in Dallas.
