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.

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!

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.

The BEST!!

Nothing beats the orginal and thats just what you get with the Egyptian! This is the orginal Campisi's and you feel it the moment you walk in. It seems there should be a mob meeting in the back somewhere. It's awesome.
