Good pizza; fun bar

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

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

Get the sunyside pizza and the pomme frites. Both are to die for. They also have the best veggie burger in the city.

I had heard this place was great and that the pizza is the best. To me the place was just OK, including the pizza. Pros: great beer selection and attractive interior Cons: pizza margarita was not very flavorful - tomatoes were pale and wimpy without much flavor and hardly any seasoning. We shared fries which were good but not great... More

Great beer selection, great staff, awesome food (I am very serious on this: try their French fries while drinking). The staff is amazing as is the beer selection and just the feel of the place.

This was our first visit to Bar Cento and our last.We decided to stop before a concert .The space is cold aesthetically and temperature wise. Every time the door opened,which was a lot Sunday night, because of the Browns crowd coming out of the bar to smoke.The cold air flooded in to the restaurant. They need to invest in a... More

Bar Cento is a very close approximation of what you get at trattorias in Italy. Great apps, wood fired thin crust pizzas, and a few right sized entrees. I highly recommend "The Big Board" a charcuterie and artisinal cheese board. At $21 it is a great value. There is plenty for 4 to share as an app. House made meats,... More

Based upon Bar Cento's reputation in Cleveland, we were looking forward to dining here for our first time to mark our wedding anniversary. Upon arrival, we were seated at a two-person table near the bar and accentuated by a high amount of traffic to and from the kitchen. My wife ordered a Mojito which was made without simple syrup; our... More

Great beer selection. Pizzas are your best bet. Good fresh ingredients. Nearby parking available. Great place for meeting before or after a game?
