i felt really bad for this restaurant as it was completely dead. Food and service are great but being only 1 of 2 couples in the restaurant felt like it was too quiet. We need to support our local restaurants before they go out of business.

Both ceaser salad appetizers were very poor. Vegetables and potatoes were almost cold on my 54 dollar entre. This is the second time we have eaten at Centini and was excellent the first time.

Great food and service. The veal chop is exceptional, they also have an extensive wine list. Cocktail selection is limited though. Would definitely come back.

Food was topnotch. Very very good. It is refershing to NOT be at a restaurant that forces you to eat off tiny "shared plates" that come out at random times. I hate it. Three course meal with nice wine pairings, perfection!

This restaurant is very dated. I think it is way past it’s prime as a top Calgary restaurant. The food is a bit overpriced as well. Had the crab and avocado salad - avo was brown and the crab had many shells in it. It was very average for a $500 meal. I won’t be back.

We had an awesome dinning experience Valentine's Day 2021. I love sitting at the high top watching the kitchen " do their thing"!!! It was fun to see the care that everyone put into preparing our meal. Even the big boss was in on the grill.
My Bride To Be had a wonderful Seafood Linguini which was an overly generous portion and prepared perfectly.
I had the Veal Chop prepared perfectly too. The crust was magic and it was over the top.
I love going to this restaurant. It was such a pleasure to get out for a meal again.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the staff were attentive and excellent. The food was fantastic, clearly homemade and of the highest quality of fresh ingredients. Each course arrived in a well timed manner, not to quickly and not too long of a wait. I would highly recommend Centini for an everyday night out or for special occasion.

I think I’m the restaurant was more than I expected. Beautiful restaurant downtown with amazing staff. I think the food was subpar for the price. My notion is I don’t like paying for food I could make at home. What I got I easily could have made at home and it was almost $50 (note this came with one Brussels sprout, one mini bok choy, three potatoes and a tiny pile of squash - LOL), meanwhile my partner got an amazing dish that was under $30. I can’t really understand why since i think the ingredients were equally as fresh and from what I know of pricing should come out to something similar for restaurant costs. I really don’t mind forking out extra money for the experience and fine dining but I need to understand cost justifications between meals.

All that said the experience was overall enjoyable. I will end up going again but I’ll be more mindful of what I’m ordering.
