Cafe Centro is a stylish and chic restaurant with a warm and comfortable ambiance. You are surrounded by exposed White Savannah Brick walls and high vaulted ceilings from the 1920"s. Local artist's paintings adorn the wall that changes monthly to support the local community. The cuisine is high quality at a fair price and ranged from Free Range Chicken to fresh seafood and homemade pasta's and Gourmet Pizza. The Cafe Centro Piano Bar has entertainment seven nights a week during the High Season and the Piano player starts at Seven O'clock. The room is warm and cozy but, elegant as well as charming. We also offer dining on our outdoor veranda along side of Bougainvilleas and lush greenery and beautiful Gardenia.

Centro is an Italian restaurant. The food is good not great. It is very noisy so if that's an issue, don't go. The staff isn't very friendly. The food is average at best.

The stars are for the entertainment only. The waitstaff and food were terrible...or at least our waiter and the woman helping him were terrible. We were brought here by friends who swore by it and even they were annoyed ten minutes into our visit. The waiter was rude, condescending, and kind of a jerk. He also kept touching me on... More

Just really good Italian food, wonderful waiters who care that your evening is going well. Nice wine selection. We sat outside on a Saturday night and it was very pleasant. Piano player starts at 9 pm and he is really good! Great chicken francese and spaghetti and meatballs.

For the longest time we have wanted to try this place. It's along our commute, and many nights this place seems to be just bustling with people. Northwood Village has begun to take-off with lots of little restaurants cropping up, music playing and people walking about. What used to be an unsettling neighborhood to find yourself at night, is now... More

I saw mixed reviews and wasn't sure what to expect. We had a reservation and were seated right away. Service was fine and attentive. Italian food with a decent selection. My seafood pasta was really pretty good, not amazing, but good. The wine selection could be better. The best part of the restaurant was the entertainment - Ray Chang is... More

I thought that the service was below average and a little disdainful. The waiters acted like they really didn't care. As with another reviewer I had booked through Open Table and perhaps that was the issue. The atmosphere was "snooty" and I felt uncomfortable here. The food was typical Italian fair and was good although a little over priced for... More

This was probably one of the best Italian restaurant experiences I have had to date. Food was classic and delicious. Service was quick and especially friendly and accommodating. Try and get there while the piano player is there because you will have a blast. Great wine and dessert menu as well. Beautiful art on the walls. I will be coming... More
