This place is always busy especially on a Saturday night. The service was below average and they could not keep up with the crowd. People seem to care about the entertainment rather than the food which is just average at best.

Not impressed with the quality of food. Would have enjoyed Olive Garden better. I guess everyone goes for the singer can't figure why it was so crowded not for the food!

As someone that has visited Italy a number of times, this reminded me of being back in Rome. We ordered the margarita pizza, grilled duck , and the special that night .... A rigatoni dish. It was wonderful!! The wine list was adequate and the lemon cello was satisfying. When we are back in town we will definitely make our... More

My husband and I always come to Café Centro during our yearly visit to West Palm Beach. Overall we really love Northwood Village for many reasons and one is Café Centro. We just think it's the best Italian food anywhere - and that's a lot coming from me as I grew up in Northern New Jersey during the '60s. This... More

All 6 of us had an awesome dinner. From appetizers to entrees and dessert, it was a delightful dinner experience. Very Italian and the staff and owner went out of their way for all of us. Can't wait to go back again.

This is another hidden neighborhood restaurant. The food is fabulous so make a reservation. The overflow seating is next door at Allora. The trout melts in your mouth and they have a great wine selection too.

This charming cafe in the Northwood District has traditional Italian fare. It's pretty authentic. Try the pasta e fagoli soup or one of their great pastas. Or tartufo pistachio for dessert. On the weekend evenings the highlight is music, singing and dancing with Ray Chang. It's a phenomenon strictly for fun. It's not a place for quiet chats or soft... More

Cafe Centro is a stylish and chic restaurant with a warm and comfortable ambiance. You are surrounded by exposed White Savannah Brick walls and high vaulted ceilings from the 1920"s. Local artist's paintings adorn the wall that changes monthly to support the local community.

The cuisine is high quality at a fair price and ranged from Free Range Chicken to fresh seafood and homemade pasta's and Gourmet Pizza.

The Cafe Centro Piano Bar has entertainment seven nights a week during the High Season and the Piano player starts at Seven O'clock. The room is warm and cozy but, elegant as well as charming.

We also offer dining on our outdoor veranda along side of Bougainvilleas and lush greenery and beautiful Gardenia.
