Although the food, location and waiters are ok, we were asked to pay for a jug of tap water without ice or lemon CHF 10.-. As of note, we ordered the jug with a bottle of wine. Since I am of the opinion that this is outrageous I'm giving Centro a 'terrible' review

First of all, the location of the restaurant is perfect. If you reserve early, you may get a seat next to the windows overlooking Barfüsserplatz.

Very run of the mill Italian, serving all the same items as 80% of the Italian restaurant in Basel. Nothing bad here, but equally nothing amazing either.

We visited this place twice during our stay in Basel. On our first visit we found the food to be good, but the service was slow and the place was hot. We decided to give this place a second chance, again same conditions. We asked the manager in charge Mr. Zimmermann to turn on the air conditioning and he refused... More
