I rarely write poor reviews however I have eaten a lot of Italian food and judging on what I had in my opinion, not only was it not good food for the dollars paid, it was not very Italian. My partner... More

I visited Centro with a few colleagues for lunch in January. Everyone enjoyed the food. I had a risotto which was excellent. The service was professional and friendly. If you are in Wollongong it is a great place for a business lunch.

After reading some of the reviews for this restaurant I have a feeling I must have my locations mixed up. But alas it was Centro CBD that a group of 10 people were very disappointed with just about every aspect of this restaurant.The waiters were not cheerful and seemed to resent our presence.. The meals were overpriced and very small... More

I like being a return patron when the service and the food is great. I have now been to Centro CBD probably six times now and it won't be the last. Every time we eat there, the service and the food has always bee the same - great. thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Had lunch with four friends last week and weren't disappointed. All dishes served were cooked beautifully served and the young waitress was very attentive. We would go back there anytime

Here for a staff dinner and had a larger group over 20 thus had access to a separate room. This was a real bonus allowing staff to get loud without affecting other patrons. All meals were pre-ordered which made the evening easy. This is a great service offered by the restaurant. Nice food, nothing outstanding the Dory was the best... More

Quite disappointed. We bought tickets for a dinner and show and were very happy with the live entertainment, however, our two course meal consisted of a small bread roll as an entree and an alternate drop menu of either chicken or pork. The vegetables were beans and a sauce. The mashed potato that accompanied the chicken was spicy and we... More

I haven't been to Centro for a few years and had forgotten how good it is. I really think it has got even better! Food was fantastic - I had tempura prawns, veal saltimbocca and profiteroles - all were delicious. Even the bread rolls were out of the ordinary! It was a large group of about 20 but service was...
