Centro (pronounced Chentro) is one of the places I constantly eat when in Des Moines. They have a great menu selection such as pork chops, salads, seafood (yes, seafood in Iowa), steaks and pizza to name a few.
For an appetizer I recommend the incredible Portobello Fries. They are lightly breaded strips of Portobello mushrooms served with a truffle aioli (which is a little like a flavored mayonnaise), that is so good you will want to order an extra. Even if you dont like mushrooms try these. They are always a hit. The Sicilian Calamari is also highly enjoyable. For dinner I usually order the pork chops with cheese polenta and mixed vegetables --- so unbelievably good. I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal here. The specials are constantly good and the servers are helpful in answering any questions.
If you are hungry and want a great menu and atmosphere head to Centro. I guarantee you will leave full and happy!!
