Had lunch here for the first time. It was outstanding. Our waiter was a bit abrupt at the onset, but he improved - perhaps something personal was going on. We enjoyed delicious appetizers and main courses. Desert was decadent. Gluten free options were easy to come by - the had several GF pastas and even serve GF bread at the start. That hard to find at an Italian restaurant. Top score from me.

We have wanted to try Centini forever. We finally pulled the trigger for our anniversary! We were blown away with every aspect of our experience! Our server, Shama, was friendly, knowledgeable and very fun! She recommended several wine choices only after we had chosen our appetizer and main courses. Everything paired very well together! The food was amazing. We started with the pan seared calamari puttanesca with white wines! Then we had entrees: seafood risotto and beef short rib ravioli! Again, we tried different wines! For dessert, we couldn’t decide so Shama recommended the share platter of three. Now, many restaurants, when doing a shared platter, the sizes are miniature compared the regular dessert. Not at Centini. We received three full size desserts. They were delicious. They included lemon tart, carrot cake and crème brûlée! At the end of the meal, we asked Shama if she would take our photo and she suggested a spot other than our table! There is beautiful art everywhere and we loved the photos she took. Centini is 5 star all the way. If you have not experienced it yet. GO!

My wife and I were in Calgary, decided on Italian and Centini was close so we decided to go there. We've been to Italian restaurants before but this one tops the list. We had green salad, the salmon platter and the seafood linguini and all the food was excellent. The linguini proved that pasta can be prepared and can taste wonderful without adding garlic or hot spices and the salmon was some of the best we've ever had which says a lot since we're from the West Coast. The server, Brad, was friendly and courteous and he demonstrated that he puts the needs of his customers first. He made helpful suggestions and was happy to allow us the time to decide on what we would have for dinner. We didn't feel rushed yet we also didn't feel ignored. The ambience of the restaurant itself was also good, the white tablecloths are a nice touch and the place has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely visit it again the next time we are in Calgary.

Just finished eating at Centini and the food was not worth the money, spent 92.00 for two orders of short rib ravioli (12 ravioli) and a bowl of soup this was without any wine or drinks. It was small and quaint but hard to hold a conversation due to how loud it was. Service was not what you would expect out of a restaurant who is attempting to attract a higher class customer. Still hungry and need to order something else now due to the very small portions. I suggest Ruth Chris or maybe the Keg for date night, better food and a lot better service.

Our first time dining at Centini and the service was very friendly. We were seated at our table and after 20 minutes asked the maître d to find our waiter. 25 minutes after we were seated our waiter finally appeared and we placed our order. One hour later we received our appetizers, $22 for 3 scallops, $22 for a tiny dinner roll sized escargot pastry. Another hour passed and we received our $34 fettucine (way too salty), and a $38 4oz-piece of overcooked chicken. Our bill with wine and a tip was $336 and I have no problem spending money on good service and food. Very disappointed and my wife good naturedly ribbed me and said we should have dined at Caesar’s or Villa Firenze instead.

I had dinner here with a small group of colleagues and spouses. The menu is extensive, lots of reasonably priced wine options by the bottle, great food — try a salmon or charcuterie board (or two) — and impeccable service! It was a great evening!

We manged to get a table without a reservation during the Calgary Stampede - result! The restaurant was very busy and appeared to be under staffed. The waiters still did a good job and provide us with good service. The food we ordered was delicious Highly recommended

Had an evening meal recently. Loved it! We felt a bit underdressed when we arrived- but the hostess didn’t seem to mind. Our server was excellent and attentive. We both had the seafood linguini. So flavourful and full of clams, mussels, shrimp and scallops. The sauce was delicious and the serving size was decent. We had ordered an appetizer but the server forgot to put our order in. We weren’t too concerned, we still had plenty to eat. We also shared the lemon tart for dessert. So yummy and freshly made. I can’t wait to be visiting Calgary again- definitely going back.

It has been some time since we dined at Centini’s - It was a wonderful delightful evening. Service was friendly and professional. The food was to die for. We shared the smoked salmon board and then each of us had sole meunière - melt in your mouth goodness. Our server recommended a lovely bottle of wine. Coffees and chocolate soufflé rounded out our evening. We will be back.

We’ve been huge fans of Centini’s for years. Having said that, our Monday experience was disappointing. The appetizer order was ‘confusing’, the pasta was too salty, the lemon tart tasted ‘day old’ and the chocolate soufflé was more like pudding. We’ll be back one more time to see if they’re back to the excellent food that we’re used to.

Following a three week trip across British Colombia this is the best restaurant we visited. Quality of the food, professional service and interesting Italian menu.

I went here in the summer while visiting Calgary. Modern and relaxing restaurant. The servers are great and attentive. Pasta is an absolute must, especially the bolognese and you can even see from your table them making it!
