Great Location, Great Food

The location is fantastic. The flatbread pizza is to die for, and the collection of beer is outstanding. I'll be back again and again!

Fun place to have a drink, but the food isn't all that memorable. Their widely touted pizza was not so superlative. Fries were OK.. the atmosphere is more interesting than the food.

Two of us went. We had looked at the menu beforehand - so pretty much knew what we were going to order. One of us ordered pizza and the other ordered the steak entree. We were able to split the food between us so each got some of both. I would be hard pressed to pick my favorite. But the... More

I really have heard nothing but good things about Bar Cento but was really disappointed. Upon walking in the hostesses and host (clearly a manager) ignored my boyfriend and I, only choosing to speak to the rather rude men in front of us who were leaning on the hostesses' stand. Being polite and not wishing to interrupt their conversation we... More

West 25th is great. Parking a little difficult but valet is available for $7. Service was efficient as orders were delivered from the kitchen as they came up. Olive appetizer was tapenade with some fried olives - a good choice. Appetizer fries also tasty and the large order more than enough for 4. Limited selection for vegetarians - though the... More

Nice atmosphere and good, friendly service, but incredibly salty food -- every item, even the house salad, amazingly.

We had a late lunch at Bar Cento on a Saturday afternoon. The menu noted their pizza had been voted a favorite of Zagat and the Food Channel, so we gave it a try. It was absolutely wonderful! We had the bacon, potato, and rosemary pizza from the "modern" list - there are also traditional favorites. These are 10-inch, thin... More

We went here for lunch because it wasn't crowded at 2:00 pm and it was near the Great Lakes Brewery. It was empty (probably for a good reason). The food was fine. I ordered a pizza and asked for no cheese and after a long wait, it was delivered with cheese! I had to wait even longer for another to... More

I've been to Bar Cento twice. The first visit I would have given this restaurant an excellent rating for food and service. The second visit was less promising. While my lunch (moules frites) was quite good, my sister's mussels were undercooked, and two did not open. Plus, I also had at least 5 more mussels than she did. When she... More

Try the many different types of pizza here and you won't be disappointed. The bar is also fun to visit on the weekends.
