We booked a table at Centolire a few hours before going there. It was a very warm night and we sat outside in a nice backyard. We were welcomed by the owner, who started chatting with us. The waiter was very friendly and good at explaining the dishes. And the food was supperb. We were two and payed about 90... More

It's a really great italian restaurant, small, cosy and very friendly people. We went there for lunch or dinner almost every day. You have the possibility to choose out of a maximum of 10 courses. So you know the food is fresh made. Not expensive food, a bottle of water is around 5 euros. So really worth the visit .

Why this is so high rated at Tripadviser I don not understand. Antipasta was just a plate of tasteless slice of ham and german cheese and cold sauce. Main course took appox 50 min to arrive. No winelist because of new vines every month.......? Vaitor showed us two vines to select among. Wine was OK but quite overprized. Never again.

I'm always a bit weary about Americans writing tripadvisor reviews in Europe, so I still had my reservation about this restaurant. But.... I was not disappointed at all. Food, service, wine, atmosphere.. All was great value for money in this small boutique restaurant. No wonder the place was filled with Italians!! Don't expect pizza margarita and spaghetti carbonara in this... More

The place is small and has a limited selection of Italian dishes, for instance there was no risotto or pizza, only antipasti, pasta and steak. The antipasti was great, the pasta average. Good wine recommendation though. Would visit Again. The staff was friendly and attentive. Would not recommend for families with small children.

We were lucky to get a table in this small and cozy restaurant. The waiter was very attentive and the food was very tasty. My family and I are not surprised that Centolire is rated one of the top 10 restaurants in Berlin.

Centolire is a small gem, but easy to miss, since there is a lot of construction around. We found it on a rainy Monday evening, a day when many restaurants are closed. It was well worth our search, since Centolire prepared some of the best italian food I ever had. Each person in our group ordered something different, and every... More

We stumbled across this small restaurant on our walking tour of Berlin. They were kind enough to seat us without a reservation and the place got crowded quickly. Authentic Italian food - made to order and delicious. Friendly staff. Would definitely return.

The previous reviews made much of the food at this restaurant and they were not wrong. I had the prawns, which were huge, and avocado for starters - fantastic and tagliatelle with truffles - exquisite for main. We shared a tiramisu dessert which was also lovely. the wine, although limited selection was lovely. We had a sauvignon blanc which cost... More

We visited this very Italian restaurant today. The restaurant is very small, there were only seven tables outside in the inner garden, but while more people were arriving, the staff organized more tables. The atmosphere and service was really friendly and relaxed in the best Italian tradition. We liked the food a lot, we had antipasti and two different pasta... More
