I rarely get excited by Italian cuisine but Café Centrale was a very pleasant surprise. I had Bolognese al Gnocchi which was rich in flavour and delicious. Service was good to the point that the chef came out to ask if all was OK and to apologise for the delay (only slight) in my meals arrival. A glass of Familae... More

After watching the 100 Foot Journey movie at Lido we were craving good food. With no French in town this was our next choice. It was amazing. We have bruschetta, ravioli, gnocchi and then gelato and tiramasu. The food and owner are authentic! And the place has a lovely intimate feel.

Just had a "date night" dinner here with my husband.... I was just a little disappointed by the decor, but the rest of the evening (food, service, beverages, dessert) all more than made up for it. First of all, I'm originally from California. I've been in Hamilton for 3 months. This is the FIRST place that has actually served wine... More

We ate at Caffe Centrale on the recommendation of hotel staff - glad we asked. The Chef is from Roma - we enjoyed great pasta - although my wife's Carbonara was little on the dry side for her taste. We just had to have dessert topped off with a great espresso.
