Campisi’s brings new taste to campus


Students asked, and Southern Methodist University delivered. Introducing the newest freshman on campus, SMU’s slice of heaven, Campisi’s Restaurant!

Campisi’s offers top-notch pizza that would move the most stern pizza critic to a smile and bring the most ardent pizza lover to tears. Follow the sweet aroma for a slice but if you still get lost, Campisi’s can be found in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center.

A local brand, family-owned and operated, Campisi’s tucks nearly 70 years of experience under its belt.

Owner David Campisi attended basketball camp and was a ballboy for SMU in the 70s and 80s.

“Bringing our first on-campus location to The Hilltop is not so much a business decision as it is an emotional one,” said Campisi in a press release. He continued to credit the support and loyalty of the SMU community for his successes.

A rich history with close ties to SMU, yet Campisi’s has the community wondering: What’s the secret to its delicious pizza?

Todd Robison, Director of Operations and aficionado of Campisi’s, shares the secret: “Quality and freshness is what gives our pizza that zing! Everything is genuine, from our dough to our desire for customer satisfaction.”

Mr. Robison favors the All the Way Pizza; I took his suggestion and tried it for myself. First, I have to get something off my chest: I’m not the biggest fan of pizza.

After I took my first bite, Campisi’s changed my opinion on pizza. The rich taste, the fresh toppings, everything was made to perfection.

Their pizza made a believer out of me, and I’m not the only one.

“I like the thin crust,” said Corey Smith. “Its got a good crisp to it.”

When asked about the best aspect of Campisi’s pizza, Trey Ivison said, “The sauce and cheese ratio is going strong,” and proceeded to give the thumbs up while nodding his head in satisfaction.

It’s easy to see why students and faculty flock to Campisi’s.

With its commitment to quality and freshness, Campisi’s easily ranks as one of the best pizza restaurants in the Dallas area.
