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.

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

Perhaps the worst dining experience I have had in a decade. Waitstaff was "sullen". Had to keep asking to fill my glass. Got the bill wrong. My osoboca was dry. The linguine that came a side was bland and the only sauce on it was the sauce from the osoboca. Only had four choices for deserts, two were ice cream.... More

While enjoying our salads the 1st party arrived and the very, very loud noise began, even though they were accross the room... More

For poor service, crowds, noise, mediocre entertainment and food go to Cafe Centro. I truly believe this restaurant has past its prime and needs a facelift.

I have seldom experienced service this poor in a restaurant of this price level. Server failed to advise the specials, forgot to bring bread, we had no cutlery when the meal arrived, and much more. Food was inconsistent. It was a guess if each item would be good or mediocre.

Our extended family loves Cafe Centro. Their Italian food is delicious, fresh and a crowd pleaser. We love their pizza, their pastas and their interesting dinner specials. Try their garlic bread rolls! Suggest Cafe Centro for your out of town visitors too.
