The menu was brief and fine for a Sunday brunch. We had brunch before attending a performance at the Overture Center across the street. Overall, good food, good service and convenient. We'll be back.
Nice atmosphere and good food. Waiters were very attentive. We will be back!
A very pleasant experience. The happy hour price on the full bottle of wine was a nice surprise, even though we only drank one glass each and took the rest home.
Very loud and difficult to hear my companion. Otherwise the food was good, cocktails excelkent, service superb.
We had a fabulous dinner for our anniversary. The food was incredible, and our server went above and beyond to make our dinner special.
Every dish was subpar and poorly cooked. The service was passable but for a fancy restaurant it felt detached and slow.
Ambiance was good, server was attentive… was not blown away by the food.
This is one of the most delicious meals I’ve ever eaten. Will definitely come back again.
This was the best food I’ve had since I’ve arrived in Madison. Everything we had was of such high quality. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is wonderful. 10/10!
super good food!! service was ok but food was delicious, first time here— would return
Came to visit my younger sister at UW Madison. She recommended I take my girlfriend to Cento for our 2 year anniversary dinner. The ambiance was great and the restaurant seemed very high end. We had a nice talk with the sommelier Kevin who was very knowledgeable about the entire wine list and sold us a bottle in our price range. Food was tasty and the fresh pasta made the dishes much better than traditional boxed pasta. They also offered us 2 complimentary glasses of Prosecco or a free dessert. Very nice overall and would definitely come back if I am in Madison
Love Cento - excellent service and fantastic food. Love the space where tables are spread out. Second time here.
This is my 2nd time going to Cento, and I’ll be back on my next trip!! It’s a solid Italian restaurant. The food and service are excellent. Does not disappoint!
Table was ready at time of reservation, had a helpful server, good selection of menu options (not too many not too few). Would go back again.
Wonderful dinner at Cento. Our waitstaff person, Gabrielle, was very attentive and most knowledgeable about the entire menu. The roasted brussell sprouts with light dressing were outstanding and almost a meal by itself. We shared a pasta dish, which was great and just enough. Wine was very nice.
Always love this place. Never been disappointed.
Execelente servico, la comida fue muy buena, es un lugar tranquilo para celebrar y platicar, pasar un rato agradable.
Service was absolutely fantastic and the food was wonderful. They made mine and my wife's anniversary very special.
Sophia was great server and food was over the top yummy, especially the roasted Brussels sprouts, hold the dressing tho. Highly recommend this place.
The service was great. We were seated immediately. Our server was Cora . She was so attentive to our table. Our appetizer was a salad and artichokes. Both were so fresh and tasty. My entree was the halibut which was served on risotto with pesto. My husband ordered the brick chicken. My husband said it was the best chicken he ever had. My son ordered the tagliatelle which were so tasty and fresh. Our desserts were affogato and tiramisu. The wine list and specialty drinks were extensive. My cava was generous and divine. I can’t wait to return with my daughter
Absolutely delicious brunch! We loved the meals - especially the ricotta pancakes, and the atmosphere is lively, but not loud. Hope to come back for dinner soon!
Our waitress, Allison, was so good! And the halibut was maybe one of the best dishes of my life. Can’t wait to go again.
The bacon wrapped dates, seasonal charcuterie board, and pastas were to die for. This is our favorite restaurant in Madison. They sent over champagne for our anniversary :)
Great place to have brunch with a friend or a partner!
There were four of us. Two shared a pizza, which they liked. One other had the halibut with risotto, which was excellent (I understand this will be leaving the menu starting Oct. 4). The other had the short ribs, basil, sugar snap peas and parmesan, which she liked very much. We will visit again the next time we go to Mad City!
Absolutely delish food. It was an excellent evening to celebrate our son's bday!!
Simply put - we've had better. Atmosphere on a Friday night was busy and a bit noisy. Music didn't seem to match the style of the place. Service was above average, but the food just wasn't what I'd expect from a place and price like this. Don't think we'll return with so many other options around the Capitol.
Great restaurant. Food was okay. Service was great. The antipasto was awesome. I’d go back for apps but probably not the food.
Great food, great atmosphere, excellent service! Covid conscious environment.
Takes a long time to get a glass of wine. Waitress not very attentive; they always seem rushed, not engaged with customer.
Had great service from Sophie. Food was very good with a comfortable portion.
It was a little loud due to one larger table, but we didn't let it bother us.
Had the lamb meatballs, octopus and fried artichoke/chickpea appetizers which were all outstanding. I had the sauteed halibut with risotto and gremolata as a main course and my dining companion had a lobster cobb salad. Two glasses of grenache from Provence and all in all a very memorable night.
Everything was delicious and enjoyed our meal . Will definitely return shld We be back in Madison
Great meal, great service!
Good food and comfy booth for large party. But very very noisy and very pricey.
Great! Food was yummy and reasonably priced.
