A group of us went to Centro for an Ian Moss night. My wife asked for the vegetarian option (it was a set menu night for the function). We have never seen such a pathetic attempt at a 'vegie stack'. One small 7cm eggplant, with a sliver of zuccini and a piece of cheese that would not have been 2cm, and it was stone-cold. The other meals were not much better. Talk about cashing in on the entertainer !
Ian Moss or not, we won't be back.

I love this restaurant. Always traditional Italian food of excellent quality and service to match.

You can't go wrong eating here.

This place is awesome. The soft shell crabs are too die for. The only problem my wife and I had was trying to decide what to order. Definitely going back.

Went to Centro for dinner after a show at IPAC - very convenient and have been meaning to try this restaurant for some time. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and did not rush us even as we were the last in the restaurant after what appeared to be a quiet night for them. Food was well prepared, well timed and good portion sizes (not too large!). Good vegetarian options as well.

Rang ahead to make a booking and to start things off they mucked that up completely and were very rude about it as if it was a real imposition even though the restaurant was almost empty (I am not surprised). Very poor service throughout the meal - not once were we asked how was your entree/main or would you like some more wine or water or coffee etc etc. Seafood was terribly overlooked to the point it was inedible, chicken was well overdone and bone dry and chewy with a milky tasteless sauce, pasta was all butter and void of any taste. Cannelloni was good no complaints. For an expensive a la crate dining experience it's best to choose any number of restaurants in the near vicinity as the food was completely mediocre at best and very poor service from start to finish particularly given it is far from cheap. On paying our bill there was still no mention of how was your meal or thank you for coming hopefully see you next time. Cross this restaurant off your list as we will definitely not be returning or recommending it to any family, friends or even enemies. All things considered a very disappointing experience!!
