After many years in my neighborhood, Centolire has closed it's doors for good. It is a loss to the upper east side as they were always dependable for a fresh and well prepared meal.

I had the worst caprese ever here- the mozzarella was old and rubbery- no excuse for this in NYC where delicious fresh mozzarella can be found every block. The dishes are expensive and overall not worth it. Try Vico up the street instead, it is...More

Dependable, with a couple of stellar selections - the Spaghetti alla Rustica is to die for, and the Ossobuco may just be the best I've ever had! Plus they've got a wonderful Kids' Menu, so it's the perfect place for the whole family!

We were in the upper restaurant. We had both the mozarella cheese appetizer and the cooked mushroom appetizers. I'm getting hungry just remembering them. The fresh bread they give you is great, but watch out for the butter--they add some oil and peppers on top...More

Upper East Side

easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural
institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most
livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth
Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
