Did not live up to the hype

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... read 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?

Went to bar cento last night before an event at a nearby brew house. Hit it just right on a Saturday evening, just before the end of happy hour. This afforded us the opportunity to order off of the happy hour menu. Great deals to be had by simply showing up before 7:00. Hubby had the lamb meatballs, which we... More

Very big restaurant that I imagine gets quite busy at night. Seared Scampi had great flavour and the portion of risotto was nice and light (and done perfectly). Pizza crust is nice and crispy- must be the heat from the oven- sauce is tangy and toppings fresh.

Food is alright, but overpriced. Supposedly famous for their pizza, had the margherita, not good. Cheese and meat plates are alright.
