Stopped in for a quick meal before attending the theatre. They are very used to having people do this so they were very accommodating to our time needs. Food was excellent.

Located downtown, this restaurant is unassuming. I read other reviews and was hesitant. The food I had for lunch was spectacular. The Caesar salad was well portioned and the right amount of garlic and dressing. The oil and balsamic vinegar is always tempting to have...More

Went with a group of colleagues. It was quiet enough for good business discussions. Centini features primarily Italianesque dishes. I had a very nice salad and the short-rib ravioli. Both were excellent. We polished off several bottles of red wine that I cannot recall specifically...More
