Food was good, but lunch portions are child sized. The carbonara was mostly a bowl of peas. Biggest disappointment was there is no bread served, and none to request...what kind of Italian inspired restaurant has no bread to go with the pasta??

Excellent! The food was incredibly fresh and delicious! I had the Greek salad with chicken and my husband had the lunch special which was a generous large slice of pizza and Caesar salad. I had some of his pizza slice and OMG best pizza!! We are from Rhode Island where we have amazing, authentic renowned Italian restaurants and pizzerias and Centros here in West Palm was right up there with the best of them! So glad we stumbled upon this gem. We will be back!!

Nothing particularly bad but nothing particularly great. Middle of the road, a bit high priced for quality of the served dishes.

Server was inconsistent with tables treating other tables better offering specials but not at our table. Maybe race issue maybe lgbt issue, maybe how we were dressed, ultimately makes no difference, the servers should be consistent otherwise people will notice.

We absolutely love coming to Cafe Centro! It is always a fun, upbeat good time! The energy in the room is so great-it doesn't matter if the service is good or the food is delicious-but it just so happens that it is all of the above. We bring many of our out of town guests here as well as friends, family and business associates.
The world needs more piano bars and places like this-dancing in the aisles and everyone is happy and smiling.

I ordered soup and a slice of pizza. The pizza was not the slice I ordered. A glass of wine was listed as $4 on the menu (before 6 P.M.). I asked the waiter if that was the true price. He said yes. The bill came. Price of glass of wine: $14. Either the waiter didn't know or the restaurant took advantage.

Good menu with a ragout pasta that was delicious. Great bartenders and lively, albeit a bit noisy, energy. Had a few drinks that hit the spot. This was a last minute change after my destination was unexpectedly and permanently closed. I hope to revisit and garner the same and more extensive experience. Definitely some tasty items on the menu worth returning for.

The food is very good and it was 1/2 price night for a bottle of wine. We went on a week night, early dining (6:30) and the restaurant was almost empty. Really should be busier because it is very nice. Have been there in previous years, in season, and it was packed. Folks should go at this time of year, too, and support the place.

The menu has been changed since we were last there. Limited selection on the new menu. There are no “conventional “ dishes.....veal parm, chicken francese, pasta alla vodka. Most of the selections are not routine. It’s odd, Maybe this is what the management is going for but the place was very empty. Too bad, previously we had very good dinin experiences there. Won’t be going back.

It was a birthday celebration, the server or restaurant did nothing about it. Normally every restaurant comes with a complementary dessert or at least singing happy birthday or something, but here nothing.
The food was just blah!!
8 people reservation and nobody loved the food.
I loved the octopus but that’s it.
They charge for the bread that it is totally empty inside, it is just like a empty case.
Who charge for bread? No even Olive Gardens does that.
We have high expectations about the food but we were all disappointed.
The bass boy let a plate fall and almost hit my head, the food was over my legs, they brought my meal right away... the bass boy apologized plenty of times, server too. No manager came to the table to say anything.
The music was lovely, but unfortunately crazy laugh, you can talk and literally we had to scream to talk with each other.
No coming back but I hope they can make improvements for future customers.

We joined friends for dinner, at the time we made the reservation we didn't know that there had been changes to the owners. The new menu was simpler than the old but still suffcient and some nice new addtions. I ordered an item from the "old" menu and its preparation was improved, the taste deeper and subtle, plus a nicer presentation and generous sized shrimp. My husband ordered the Bolonagese and was happy. Our friends ordered the Salmon and the grilled oysters and said they were delicious. We had a caesar salad (much better than before) and the avocado crab appetizer (lots of fresh crab). The bar area was lively with music and people dancing, initially we went for a quiet table in the dining room. An unfortunate choice- shortly after the arrival of our appetizers they sat a very active, screaming child who ran around the room and had adults that ignored him at the table right next to us. Since the dining room was almost empty, had the food not been as good as it was that unruly child would have completely ruined our evening. The child and the piano room were on par. We were happy with the menu improvements and will go back... maybe for dinner in the piano room.
