Campo Bello has closed after surviving much longer than I thought it would. Good food, but terribly located in a former suburban KFC building.

I never did try Campo Bello. Anything Italian was usually at Provino's/Portofino's until I left Greenville.

I hate to hear this. We only went once. I loved it a lot more than my husband did. Since it wasn't real close to us, I never pushed him hard to go back.

Who, who, and who? No wonder they didn't make it. Never have heard of any of those establishments.

The only one I know of is the Five Star subs and I wasn't about to stop in there with a Firehouse Subs right there.

I live in the neighborhood and had seen all of them but never went to any of them... not surprised they closed. This is a tough time for small businesses everywhere, and if a business doesn't do something to cause itself to stand out from the crowd, it'll follow in their footsteps.

I live in that area and ate at Five Star Subs once. I thought it was good, but my husband wasn't crazy about it.

Wow, always heard advertisements from them on WORD as well as them promoting a Saturday morning call-in show they hosted? I don't see how all these Gold Metal places are still in business. They've been riding this gold buying wave for a long time.
