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.

Who doesn't like Motown music Add to that a few drinks and respectable food, and you have the recipe for a very fun evening. Don't expect to come and sit in your seat a whole night. I guarantee you that you will be up dancing with everyone else. Even the tables outside get into it. Service is also friendly. Thank you Wanda for taking good care of us.

We hadn’t been to Café Centro in a very long time since it’s about a 45 minute drive from my home. I was bringing my brother to the airport, and was very happy to dying here again. The service could not have been any better, and the food was very good to excellent as well with each of us. Each dish was uniquely prepared. We may just break up the long drive back-and-forth, and come regularly like we used to do several years ago.
