Il Centro is a small, out of the way Italian restaurant just east of Chinook Centre. The room is small, comfortable and welcoming, the staff are attentive and efficient. The food is simple, extremely well done, reasonably priced and good value. If you want the pretentious, see and be seen environment go somewhere else, but if you want a great little room with excellent food in a down to earth restaurant this is an excellent choice.

We brought our 3 friends to Il Centro and had a nice dinner. The prices have increased substantially. For a dinner for 5 with a few drinks, appetizers, and dessert our bill came to over $250 and then the payment machine was defaulted to a 20% gratuity. Needless to say I was somewhat shocked at the final bill being that Il Centro is a 3 star restaurant at best. If I had attended a 4 or 5 star restaurant then the bill would have been expected. Unfortunately the cost vs the value does not add up. Will not likely return in the future.

It's just great unpretentious food. I dare say this is the best calamari in the city - just the lightest dusting of flour, not too much sauce and perfectly cooked. The pizza is great, as is the service.

Great pizza; Wonderful, friendly service & Terrific pasta and apps. Clean and well managed. Call ahead or make reservations as there are private functions sometimes or busy on the weekends. Favourite real Italian pizza/pasta dishes in southern Calgary during the last 5 years.

This restaurant is consistently good with authentic Italian foods served in a warm and comfortable atmosphere. The portions are a good size and the food always delicious. Top notch service as well.
