Great food. Tables VERY close together. Don’t need to seat customers at every table side to side if there are open tables.

The restaurant was closed when we got there. I've been before & food is great but to let people make reservations when you're closed is frustrating.

We had a table of two on a Saturday night. There was also an event downtown that night. Food was a little slow coming out, but they were VERY busy and the waitress apologized. Definitely make a reservation!

The vibe feels like a place from New York. It has lots of small tables in a long narrow restaurant. The mood was set with tea candle lit dinner and lots of laughter. The cooks in the back were just as excited to be there as we were. Food was AMAZING. Would go again any day.

They require you to put your mask on for the 8 steps to the table, but the people making the pizzas have their masks pulled down.
Wait staff was talking to each other and didn’t even attend to our table more than twice.

We ordered four slices of pizza, four drinks, a side salad and two cocktails for $85. It took almost 1 hour, server was awful and barely came to the table. He seemed miserable the entire time.

If I must find fault with Central Pizza, it is that the restaurant is loud and echos. The chatter of fellow customers, the noise from the kitchen and even street noise can contribute to a din that can make it hard to hear your party's conversation.
