I live within blocks of Pointe-Claire village and had never been to Il Centro. We dined on a quiet Tuesday evening, arriving at 2030. The teeny-bopper young lady refused to seat us directly in front of the window on one side of the dining room preferring to "save it in case we have 4 guests" to which I replied -... More

We like trying different places to eat so chose this restaurant after walking past it earlier and reading the menu. It is an old white house that has been converted to a restaurant. We chose the downstairs dining room with linen tablecloths and intimidate looking table settings. There is a bistro upstairs which offers the same menu and it attracted... More

As a fan of Italian food, I decided to visit this place since it was nearby and sold my favourite dish "risotto". I chose the Osso Bucco with Risotto alla Milanese which was basically risotto with tomato based lamb shanks over it. This was amazing. the shank was properly cooked and had awesome flavour. For starters, I had the Aubergines... More

Very low quality food. Bad atmosphere Was seated upstairs at bar with TV sports on for valentines day. Commercials were better than the decor.

We had dinner with my daughters and their partners on Sunday evening. Great service and choice, food was excellent and we had a lot of fun. We will be back.

This restaurant is located a block or two from the Pointe Claire Yacht Club. It may be easy to drive right by as this place is in a charming old historic two storey house. It sits right on the corner and has ample parking in back. It also has a ramp for those who are in wheel chairs or who... More

Had a great meal with my family at Il Centro. Jimmy & Ted are always welcoming, their food is very fresh & tasty. They offer a nice pizza for the kids, desert is worth it. Terrace is very nice on great summer nights.

We've been going to Il Centro for many years and it has been consistently very good. After spending a month in Italy and being generally disappointed in the food we returned to Il Centro to reacquaint ourselves with good Italian food.

On the very edge of Pointe Claire Village, this beautiful old house should be welcoming just because of its vintage. However, we found the attitude of the staff had an air of superiority, and I cannot abide condescension. This is not the Ritz! That is also reflected in the food, which can just be described as good - no more.... More

Four of us had dinner last night and it was our first visit to "il Centro". Our table was set beside the window so we could see all the street activity outside. We decided on the table d'hote menu, one had a salmon starter and the others the clam chowder all were first class. For mains we had three chicken... More
