I'm always a bit weary about Americans writing tripadvisor reviews in Europe, so I still had my reservation about this restaurant.

But.... I was not disappointed at all. Food, service, wine, atmosphere.. All was great value for money in this small boutique restaurant. No wonder the place was filled with Italians!!


Don't expect pizza margarita and spaghetti carbonara in this place, here you get the real deal from Italy. Authentic food with great taste.

I have been to Italy lots of times, and this is good, real good!

The place is small and has a limited selection of Italian dishes, for instance there was no risotto or pizza, only antipasti, pasta and steak. The antipasti was great, the pasta average. Good wine recommendation though. Would visit Again. The staff was friendly and attentive. Would not recommend for families with small children.

We were lucky to get a table in this small and cozy restaurant. The waiter was very attentive and the food was very tasty. My family and I are not surprised that Centolire is rated one of the top 10 restaurants in Berlin.

Centolire is a small gem, but easy to miss, since there is a lot of construction around. We found it on a rainy Monday evening, a day when many restaurants are closed. It was well worth our search, since Centolire prepared some of the best italian food I ever had. Each person in our group ordered something different, and every dish was excellent. The pasta was freshly cooked for us. We know that not only because of the way it tasted, but also because the server came and selected some pasta packages from the shelf next to our table. The food was wonderful, tasteful, and authentically Italian, with a touch of creativity. The prices were reasonable, with pasta dishes starting around 10 euros, and meat dishes starting at around 20 euros; portions are generous. The owner is charming and accommodating. As it was very late and most stores had closed, we asked for a few slices of bread to take to our apartment for our next day's breakfast, and he gave us a whole loaf, with instructions on how to heat it. Our dinner at Centolire was a delightful experience.

We stumbled across this small restaurant on our walking tour of Berlin. They were kind enough to seat us without a reservation and the place got crowded quickly. Authentic Italian food - made to order and delicious. Friendly staff. Would definitely return.
