I have spent some time reading other reviews of this restaurant and my experience does not seem to match. 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 described his food as not up to standard for Italian. Why didn't we complain? - with a couple of friends and wanted the night to go well.
On the bright side the service was excellent. Attentive but unobtrusive. Very well done. Parking is also very good with a large parking station next door.
Wollongong has a lot of good restaurants. So saying, my meal wasn't even good enough to temp me back for another go.

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 servings and all side dishes were extra. Now I know this is called fine dining but really the meals were a joke. The only saving grace was that the staff at the bar were very friendly. I hope that this was just a one off situation!
