We went for Sunday brunch at 11:00 a.m. (when they open). Having read there is always a line we arrived about 10-15 minutes early. There was already a line forming. The place is tiny, but no matter, the food is amazing! The blueberry scones are wonderful. We even bought a couple dozen to have for family at Christmastime, along with... More

Went here when visiting a friend and I couldn't have been more pleased. The wait is totally worth the delicious food! I ordered the French Toast and was not disappointed. I will eat here again when I come down to AL.

The pizza / salads are delicious and unique for lunch, but the recent visit for brunch was a whole new level of enjoyment. My frittata was very tasty with excellent texture and my wife and I split an order of french toast that was absolutely heavenly!! Best part of the whole thing is watching how they made it so we...

This is one of my favorite downtown restaurants. Always packed at lunch, but well worth the wait! Yummy casual Italian food. Famous for their unique pizzas, but the salads are amazing, too.

We stopped in for Sunday brunch during the Sidewalk Film Festival. It was delicious & all was super fresh! Three of us all got different dishes and we all loved our selections. I hate I couldn't try a fourth dish, French toast. Also, the cafe aulait (sp?) was wonderful! Highly recommend. Get there early. A line forms. Or just be... More

Trattoria Centrale is the perfect lunch spot on beautiful downtown 20th St. Some say it is the best pizza in Birmingham, and while I don't know that's for sure, they are certainly a contender. Eat inside in the AC or al fresco at the sidewalk cafe tables. Pizza is sold by the slice, the food is very good, it comes... More

Menu is a fine balance of pizza, pasta and nice Italian meat and seafood dishes. Affordable, and every option at our big table was a hit! Definitely coming back to have another great lunch.

We tried a few different pizzas by the slice and they were all fantastic. Their crust is amazing. They made a pizza just for my daughter because she is picky. The employees were all very friendly and responsive. If you like pizza then you will love this place.

Very good food and service! Recommended for anyone visiting Birmingham. The coffee is amazing, pizza and scones. Also, the pizza looks great, but we haven't done lunch there just yet.

We got to Trattoria about 15 minutes before opening, and there was already a line of 15 people. As we waited the line got much longer and stayed that way while we ate. You can watch them make the food while you wait, and it tasted just as good as it looked. I liked that there were cheap options as... More
