Good food and comfy booth for large party. But very very noisy and very pricey.
Great! Food was yummy and reasonably priced.
Overall good experience - server was excellent
The atmosphere was outstanding and comfortable. Nice selection for appetizers , entrees, beverages and dessert.
Our server was attentive and made sure we had what we needed for our dining experience. If she didn’t know the answer to the question she was able to utilize her resources to get the answer .
Great Italian restaurant with the authentic taste of Italy. Will visit again.
When I went the first time I loved the food, the dishes were super good with unique flavors and of good quality, the dishes were adequate and the variety of pasta was the best. It was my favorite restaurant, I recently went and it was the biggest disappointment I have ever had, the menu and dishes have changed and it is not the same taste, quality and quantity. I don't know if they changed the chef or the owner of the restaurant. but I really do not recommend any change at all they will be disappointed
The food was not good and the portions and presentation was not up to par.
The server was awful,she had an attitude.
The food was outstanding. Nice sized portions. Food arrived hot. Wasn’t thrilled with my first glass of Rose’ wine but the second glass was perfect. Our waitress And the rest of the staff was attentive and answered all our questions. When the restaurant got a bit busier we found ourselves waiting longer for food and the bill but it wasn’t too long. I will definitely go back.
Our server Abby was fantastic!
Dinner out with friends was great. Thanks Kevin
We got the short rib and lobster scampi- both were so good!
Food wonderful and server delightful!
My parents were visiting and celebrating their 41st wedding anniversary! We had a great time!
We ordered mussels and bread for an appetizer. We had 3 different pasta meals. Our plates were licked clean. The food was absolutely delicious! We actually ended up coming back 2 days later for dinner again. The restaurant is beautiful, great wine selection, and the service was great!
College send off
Food was good. We had a great time over food, wine and conversation. The restaurant seemed to be at capacity and so the noise level was high but also a very festive and fun atmosphere . We all had a wonderful evening.
I'm 77 so t noise level a bit high . music might be little more dinner like but then i am 77 and being hard of hearing helps
love food and try to make it once a week since we moved to Madison a few months ago
Always consistent, high quality experience. We'll done during challenging times.
Our waiter was super!!!! We could not have asked for a better evening! Well done! Thx.
Very welcoming atmosphere, food and staff. Second time in 10 days due to first experience. Among the three of us, repeats on the lobster Cobb salad, burrata and lobster scampi, but everything was great, including a well priced wine list. Will repeat again.
Delicious food and excellent service. Cento is beautifully and simply decorated with an open kitchen for viewing the magic that happens there. We are vegetarians and our server was overly generous in suggestions for menu and off-menu items. The house limoncello is SO delicious. Yum to all!
Wait staff is a little pushy to turn over tables. reasonable drink and wine selections and prices. excellent beef carpaccio and very good bacon-wrapped dates. my Taglialatela was superb as was my wife's pasta with lobster. my wife chocolate mousse was to die for. definite on the repeat performance list.
The wait staff were very responsive and friendly. The noise level was higher than I remember in the past and the vibe of the place became very energetic as the evening wore on.
As good as expected from reviews
Octopus appetizer was delicious although a bit more octopus would have been better, as the dish was heavy on the chickpeas. The chorizo they use is perfect, not greasy. Entrees: Chitarra was outstanding, as was the fusilli alla puttanesca. Service was great.
Excellent food and service! Very nice atmosphere and friendly staff.
We had not dined in at Cento before so this was a real treat. We went for brunch for a special celebration and had a wonderful experience. The food was great (as we expected) and service just wonderful. Abby, our server, was totally on top of things as were the other servers. Would definitely recommend Cento for great food, service, and setting.
The music was hideous. Sounded like the bass from a car on EWash. Much to loud and took away from the enjoyment
Amazing flavors. Excellent appetizers, all three entrees were delicious, perfectly cooked. Great service. Highly recommend! Thank you!
Only one really negative comment...didn't like the fried artichoke. Seemed very fibrous and didn't taste that good.
Making reservations here was a breeze. Staff read my notes on my reservation and were aware of the occasion we were celebrating as well as the dietary restrictions. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff was very friendly.
Cento is fantastic! Third time I’ve been to the restaurant and every time the food is amazing.
Another FANTASTIC dinner at Cento! Our server, Abby C, was amazing! Her timing was spot on and she had excellent recommendations and overall demeanor. We had the lamb meatballs, dates, buratta, Tuscan kale salad, crispy potatoes and porcini parpadelle. Everything was amazing. If we had to pick what we wouldn’t do again, it would be the meatballs, but their flavor was great. The pasta was out of this world fantastic. Every time we are in Madison, Cento is where we dine! Thank you again for a great experience!
Great Food Great Service Good Ambiance All around great experience.
Food, service, and atmosphere all excellent. A little noisy for conversation, but just goes to show it's the place to be.
Sam was a great server! As always, food was delicious.
The food was fantastic and the ambiance was amazing! Great service!
