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!

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!More

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.More

We ordered food for delivery this week and it was wonderful! It was delivered at the right temperature (pasta was hot, lemon tarts were cold). We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Thank you!

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.More

At my brother’s suggestion we booked Centini for 6 of us. The setting was cozy and appealing. The food on the other hand was spectacular. We all ordered different pasta dishes and everyone commented on how good their meal was. We will definitely be back.

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.More

We stopped in for dinner before heading to the orchestra, and everything was great. Our server let us know in advance that there was a party of 40 ordering, so we should try to order as soon as possible- and he was very attentive all...evening. We started with the calamari which was fabulous, and then shared the mushroom risotto, and the pulled pork ravioli- both were to die for. For dessert we had the cheesecake, which also was amazing. Definitely recommend.More

I came here for dinner last weekend with a group of 10. The food was fantastic, the wine was great and so was the wine! Also, our server, Sarah, was very pleasant and very helpful. I had the fresh veal tortelloni and it was probably...the best pasta dish I've ever had...and I've eaten a lot of pasta! All in all, a great experience and would absolutely recommend to a friend!More
