Centini Restaurant & Lounge
This was one of the city's hottest tables when it opened in 2002 and its take on fine dining and service have only improved with age. Consistently well-executed food and relaxed, professional service rule in this contemporary dining room. Daily fish deliveries, hand made fresh pasta, an in-house bakery and attention to the nuances of authentic Mediterranean cuisine abound on the large menu. The sleek dining room is complemented by additional rooms that can be closed off, a feature that makes Centini a favorite haunt of the city's corporate players seeking privacy.

The food was really good. Our waiter was excellent. Didn’t rush us out the door. Too the time to talk to us.
Love this restaurant, some of the best quality food that I’ve had in a long time - a must try
Cook on scallops was perfect and our pasta entree’s were great as well,still one of our top favourite places for Italian
Wow wow wow. One of the best dining experiences I’ve had in Calgary! 10/10 recommend!
I sent my comments directly to the owner. One of the worst dining experiences ever. So bad in fact that I left no tip. I’ve eaten there often and always enjoyed the experience but this last time was terrible. On the positive note, the meal was great.
It was Valentine’s Day... people were really packed in. We had a table right beside the door and very close to another table so the ambiance was not what we were hoping for. The food was ok. Main course was better than appetizer or dessert. Service was quite good considering how busy it was and our server definitely was working hard.
Really loved the food, the server was really nice and informative, and despite it being Valentines Day our food came in a reasonable timeline. My only dislike was how close we sat to other tables (about half an arms length).
Nice place , food was good. Waiter was very helpful. It was a busy night.
We went for Valentine’s Day with some friends, the food and service was fantastic.
Was very busy but all good. Thx
We had a lovely dinner in a beautiful restaurant with great service. A wonderful evening.
A birthday celebration. Great food and service.
Our server was fantastic. I wish I could remember his name so that I could give him the praise he deserves. He did a wonderful job in making us feel special , he was so personable and attentive . Even though the restaurant was very busy with no empty tables, and many large tables no once did he seem rushed. The food was awesome. I have eaten here many times and never have I had a bad meal. The kitchen always impresses. The place was very lively which is what I expected since it was the time for Christmas parties and I think there were a couple going on at the time.
We had a wonderful time.
Great food, great service and a nice setting join an evening out. Seafood linguine and Dover sole we’re excellent, and desserts we’re delicious (crème brûlée, tiramisu and cheese cake). We’ll be back (again)!
Nice dinner with friends, service was very good and friendly food was very good
Ordered tagliatelle - taste was great except for the pasta they served was fettucini noodles. Service was so-so. Tables right in front of the kitchen were high traffic, wasn't a very romantic setting. Overall it was ok - overpriced for the seating space.
The food and service are excellent. One of my favorite places for a great meal and great service. Would highly recommend for a date night or special occasion.
Class meal, class service and we had fun. Wine list should have more Canadian content.
This is my second visit. The food was amazing. Price point a little on high side. But I have no complaints about the service or the food.
Dining in advance of a theatre booking. Time sensitive but the staff and kitchen made it work as they always do.
Hostess is didn’t get to take our coats even thought we had taken them off. Only after we asked did she take them. She confirmed our reservation where I had noted we were going to theatre and celebrating a birthday. Restaurant was empty and tried to seat us at an undesirable table at the front door. Service after that was adequate. Food was very good.
Food was not served in time for concert so we had to stay hungry all evening. Restaurant made no apologies.
Wonderful meal with great service.
Service was excellent as usual. Food was on point as I would expect from Centini.
What a great place for Italian cuisine. The service was cordial, friendly and prompt. The prosciutto board was a great way to start and the veal scallopini was tender and flavorful. We loved our meal and will be back whenever in Calgary.
Great food and incredible service!
We loved this restaurant. The food is authentic and absolutely top-notch. Very pleasant and efficient staff. Great all around 👍🙂👍
Had lunch here with friends from out of town. Very impressed with food and service. Also lots of gluten free options. Going back for dinner!
Great food and awesome server!
My fiancé and I went for a date night and wanted to try something new. We arrived early and were seated immediately..there were very few customers but the service was quite slow but once our server came he was very engaging. We ordered our food but found the food very tasty but the portions were a little small. Hubby had an appy and a main and he left hungry and he’s not a huge eater.
Incredibly delicious food, wonderful service and a great place to celebrate a special occasion!!
The food and service were excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant for for any occasion.
My daughter has been visiting me from Vancouver. We ate out many times - she said it was the best meal that she had in two weeks.
Haven’t been to the restaurant in probably 5+ year. I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the food. I cook myself; better than most chefs and I would have to say everything was genuinely on point. Price is reasonable and service was pretty sharp as well. Very solid by my standards no question!!
Nice spot. A bit pricey.
The food was very good; however, the service was not. Our waiter clearly would have preferred to be somewhere else. Attention to detail was not there. I hope it was an off day for them. This place should be amble to do better than what we experienced. I would go back for the food but probably won’t due to the poor service.
Amazing brunch experience for Mother’s Day. Pastries and pasta exceeding expectations.
We chose to go to Centini’s for Mother’s Day Brunch.
I have been to Centini’s for dinner a number of times and loved it. But this time was a mess.
Made a reservation and was there fairly early (due to our kids needing naps). Even though we were the first people there, we were given a table back beside the bathrooms and not in the beautiful front dining room.
Service was really poor. Even trying to flag a server for a coffee top up was difficult. It took three tries to find a pepper milk or salt grinder that either had salt or pepper and even functioned.
The food definitely wasn’t up to the dinner standards.
Maybe they had a junior guy in the kitchen for this “special” service.
The baked goods were by far the highlight. They should open a coffee shop with those things!!
I know I’ll be back to Centini’s but I’ll stick to dinner, where I can be more confident in the product.
