I deliberately arrived at LAX a bit earlier before my last flight flight in order to test out Campanile, a new Priority Pass restaurant in Terminal 4.
There was no wait for a table and since time was limited, I flagged down a waitress and ordered right away. Here’s the full lunch menu:
Your Priority Pass card grants you $28 in food/drink credit (and an additional $28 per guest). Note the fine print surrounding this particular Priority Pass restaurant. You are only permitted one “complimentary” guest, even if your Priority Pass membership includes unlimited guests.
I chose a flat iron steak. It cost $23.99 meaning I was under the $28 limit and could have walked away without opening my wallet.
The steak was cooked medium-rare, exactly as I specified, and included fried potatoes drizzled in chipotle sauce and mushrooms. I enjoyed the meal very much.
The Priority Pass credit cannot be applied toward gratuity, so I did ask the waitress to charge $5 on my credit card. Please do tip your waitress: it’s the right thing to do considering tipping culture in the USA and how many likely depend on tips to make ends meet.
After eating, I returned to Terminal 7 on the secure side using the underground tunnels which links terminals 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.
Although I had access to the Air Canada, Alaska, and United lounges, this proved to be a far better option. I enjoyed a nice steak lunch and only had to tip. The menu at Campanile is nice: this is a far better restaurant than Barney’s Beanery. I look forward to returning, though I will try P.F. Chang’s next time in the Tom Bradley International Terminal.

Glad to read and see your positive experience. On both Yelp and Google this outlet has nearly unanimously terrible reviews. Hopefully your review means they’ve improved.
I can’t wait for the P. F. Chang’s review (and for the next time I’m flying out of LAX. 🙂
Also had a steak there and it was pretty good, the sauce they put on the potatoes is excellent. My parent had the Mahi mahi tacos and they were ok, a little dry but they did not taste fishy.
Funny thing though, I went in the evening (7:30PM) and had the same menu, a friend went the day before with a different menu (same as what’s on Yelp, squid ink pasta, seafood pasta, etc.)
It’s nice to see that name still around. The Campanile on La Brea was a pretty big part of my childhood, and it was kind of heartbreaking when it closed.
Seriously how do you cope with doing LAX on a regular basis? Have just made it through “security” on my first visit and now parked in a lounge but jeez what an effort to get here. half an hour from moving out from the Avis rental lot to opening the doors at TBIT. Check in was a zoo, thankful business class means that didn’t take too long but then over half an hour queuing to reach the TSA who then because of the queues required no electronics out, no shoes off, and no body scanners only the metal dectector. Nice to not have to unpack my electronics put in that case thanks for wasting half an hour of my time for zero “security” benefits. If it is like this regularly, I am surprised there hasn’t been severe civil unrest
You get used to it.
Do you need an International flight BP in order to visit PF Chang? Priority Pass website said International flights only, but TBIT-T4-5-6-7 are now all connected with airside corridors though it takes 5 to 8 min walk on each corridor – so your return from T4 to T7 probably would take around 30 min one way.
My understanding is, LAX TSA let you go thru any terminal’s check point as long as your BP is valid. Is that true?
We have an AS flight on the Thanksgiving Day afternoon, waitlisted in F but I seriously doubt it would clear. I hope we can use either PF Chang at TBIT or Companile at T4 before flight. Is that possible?
I strongly doubt you’ll need to present an international boarding pass.
Why does this not come up via Priority pass website??
It does. Pull up LAX and it’s on the list. I don’t think it has been indexed by Google yet.
Sadly it got taken off the list…. Wonder why, possibly losing them tons of money
