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.

Tonight I went to Bier Markt with my brother and my best friend for happy hour and their awesome pomme fries. My best friend loves this place and I think it's a nice atmosphere, but we were treated very rudely by the bartender Kelli B. I could tell that she was annoyed we even sat down. She handed us menus... More

Went due to Trip Advisor reviews and search for Cleveland Happy Hour. Went during Happy Hour, had $5 pizza bianca, and ordered "big board" (cheese/charcuterie) and olives from regular menu ($19 and $7). Lots of food for 3 people. Board had great variety of meats/cheeses, including venison pate, "curry wurst", and a white cheese with grape. Accompanying mustard and raspberry... More

We stumbled on this place for happy hour and were really pleased. We were seated by the kitchen, which ended up not being so bad because it was cozy and we could see all the food come out. The pizza was excellent as were the mussels. I think they were voted one of the best pizzas in all of Ohio... More
