Long a favorite of ours. We enjoy the music and by sitting in the front room we can also talk, The pizza with shrimp is our favorite and it did not disappoint, My husband loves the Rigatoni ala Vodka; perfectly seasoned and not overly sauced and plenty to share with me. my steak requested med. rare came out well done. The waiter was horrified and returned it to the kitchen. They could not have been nicer to me about it; they remade the steak, sent me a Scallop appetizer and treated us to a dessert too. Mistakes happen in the kitchen but they knew how to make it right and I left a happy customer.

There were 4 of us that visited Cafe Centro WPB for the first time. Staff was very attentive and friendly. Rob was our waiter. Rather small portions, three out of the four meals were delicious. Cocktails and dessert were delicious. More than anything the live Motown music last night had the crowd singing along and dancing which added to the night and our fun evening.

The waitress forgot to put my order in but put the rest of my table. She brought the food and told me she just put in in. I got my food while everyone got coffee. The chef came out and apologized for her but it was clearly her mistake She just forgot to put it on the order. He was so pleasant and nice.

Great ambiance and the food was delicious. Our waiter was extremely nice. We were slow to get water refills, and a salad asked to be undressed was dressed. Service and food was slow, but it was delicious. There was a great jazz trio and they weren’t overpowering. Would definitely go back. Again, our waiter was super nice but he might’ve been new.

Casual, fun dining place. We enjoyed everything about it. It's a restaurant that makes you feel welcome and hate to leave. The food was delicious. Make sure to order the bread. The peach Sangria is not to be missed. The trio was delightful, good music, well played. It's definitely a go back to place again and again.

We dined early (4:30) and chose to sit at one of the sidewalk tables. It was in the shade, lovely and breezy.

Everyone in our party of four enjoyed their meals - shrimp scampi, pan-seared salmon, and pan-seared scallops. We ordered side salads which were fresh, generous and served with a very good house vinaigrette. We also shared an order of a freshly-baked puffy round of bread garnished with a garlic-herb mixture.

The service was professional, solicitous and friendly.

We began with the Chcken Wing confit and it was crispy and tasty. My husband loved the Branzino Filet, and I had the Pasta Carbonara. The ambiance was very nice either the decor, but the icing was the piano player. He was quite a pleasure to listen to. Service was fantastic as well.

Cafe Centro- WPB is one of my favorite WPB restaurants. Our party of four was seated outside (at our request) so the noise level was that of a street, not the restaurant interior. Same for ambiance.

The food is very good. I had the spicy sausage rigatoni, two in our party had the fish, and the fourth had marinated pork chop. Everyone was very happy with their selection.

Service was terrific. Gino from Ecuador provided us with excellent service. Very helpful and friendly.

Soul man Greg Jackson is back on Friday evenings. We left before he started his entertainment, for which I was sorry. He puts on a great show.

I highly recommend Cafe Centro-WPB for a nice evening out.

Went there for the first time last week. We were pleasantly surprised with the food which was pretty good. Not the best Italian food in the Palm Beach area, but the great live soft jazz band, the Susan Merritt trio, made the evening memorable. Can’t wait to go back!

We enjoyed the music. Advice to owners - overall ambiance significantly reduced by the INCREDIBLY bright lights. Decor is ok, but could be (should be) more moody and romantic with lower light level. Food above average. Didn't appreciate the $10 well drinks (whiskey/soda). Rest of the pricing average. The "music room" is small and tables very packed in. You sit too close to other people, sharing conversations. The music was wonderful - 6:30p to 9:30p. Too few restaurants with no music. Lucky to have one like this. We'll go back. Don't order a side of spaghetti marinara. Mistake.

Intent of the dinner: interviewing a candidate for work. Cafe Centro was recommended.

First, the food was very good at a good value. Our party’s choices were Stuffed Chicken Parm, Chicken Alfredo, and Carbonara. Everyone cleared their plates, respectively. We loved the live jazz! It is dinner jazz! Overall, 4 out of 5.

Here are the challenges. This dinner was booked as a business dinner. So, why did the owner put us in the room with the live music? Did he not read the purpose of the dinner? Having been our first time dining here, I won’t make the same mistake twice.
The second challenge was the front of house manager delivered our desserts and dumped my guests on the table causing it to dump out onto the table in front of the other person in our party. She had to pick it up with her fingers off the tablecloth. The manager asked, “Is that ok?” All while my guest looked shocked of knowing what to do. We asked the manager to bring another. He agreed with obvious agitation. He returned two minutes later with a plate with whipped cream and Oreos, the garnish of the chocolate mouse. The three of were stunned. Frustrated, I went to the front of the restaurant, found the manager, and stated that we expected a replacement dessert no just the garnish as he had dumped the entire mouse onto the table.
The big issue from the beginning was he was dismissive, clearly agitated that we asked for a replacement, and that he thought his mistake was “OK.” REALLY!?! This employee needs a remedial lesson in service etiquette!!

First time eating here, after hearing good things about it. Everything we had was delicious, the smoked salmon app, the inflated Nan bread drizzled with butter and garlic. However it was our main courses that were really exceptional. My beautiful date had the glazed pan seared salmon and I had the rigatoni garlic chili paste pasta with sausage that I am still talking about 3 days later!
We made new reservations for the piano room in two weeks and can’t wait to go back!!

We were seated at 6:30. The tomato mozzarella starter was great, but our salad/soup was brought before our starter was finished. Halfway through our soup/salad, the entrees arrived. We asked that they hold them until we finished. Ten minutes later they brought our entrees. My Bolognese was outstanding, but my husband’s spicy sausage pasta had dried a bit with the wait. The night was early and the diningroom was only half full, the service shouldn’t be rushed. We were out by 7:40. Please slow down your service!

Had the best Italian food, being a Italian from the north east, this was the type of place you’d be used to going to where I’m from. Sal the owner, and his family, made us feel like part of their family. So inviting and happy to see you when you walk in. The live music, on the night we attended, turned into a jam session with a guy from the crowd coming up and singing the Great sing-along tunes, the crowd was fun, and tables were getting up and dancing as did our family! This was the day after Christmas and I’m telling you, it was great! The food is fantastic and the rest is just as good! Go, you’ll thank me later.
