    The food and service were excellent! Everyone was attentive, the food was portioned and presented well, and, as a former bartender, the drinks were a delicious addition to the dining experience. Bar Centrale will become one of my more regular spots now.

    I much prefer Bar Centrale to the upstairs. The choices on the menu are excellent, really outstanding and original food and the wine list is fantastic. Waiters are all great. Very efficient, friendly and attentive. Ambiance is great. You can actually engage in a nice, intimate conversation and hear yourself talk. No hesitation in recommending Bar Centrale.

    The service was very slow and the restaurant was empty. Apps and mains came at separate times, had to wait for complete orders to arrive. Pastas were cold and overcooked. Had to wait 20 minutes to get another glass of wine. Servers were seen “eating” their dinner while guests were waiting for theirs. Terrible experience.

    Always like the "vibe" at Bar Centrale. It's never too crowded (unlike upstairs), the food is excellent (I actually prefer it to the upstairs venue), and the staff are first-rate. Just a nice, relaxed place to enjoy a quiet romantic evening.

    I loved this place! Went with my parents for a cozy and delicious meal and we got just that! Our server was lovely and so informed. I appreciated how they let us take our time and answered any questions we had about the restaurant and the food. Also the spritz was delightful! Definitely a new spot we love.

    the intention was to eat pizza, you specify on the page that it is only on the Terroni menu and we realized that we were not the only ones with this confusion and there were those who were changed to the other restaurant. the pasta we ordered. It was too hard or undercooked and a long time to wait.

    There was some confusion (on my part) with the reservation, but we enjoyed it. I wanted more of an intimate setting, so we waited for a table upstairs. The atmosphere at Bar Centrale was lovely, and the staff accommodating. Next time, I will be sure to pay attention when I click on the options at Terroni Price, to avoid future mix-ups and long wait times, especially on a busy Saturday night. Will definitely go again.

    Always enjoy Bar Centrale but felt service staff were way too aggressive letting us know our table was booked for next party, snatching everything they could off table before we were finished and no sign of next sitting when we left. Was kind of a downer.

    The food and service exceed the very casual, bustling, neighbourhood nature of this spot. The Italian-rooted dishes are authentic, well-prepared and nicely presented. Our server was attentive and efficient, with a refreshingly genuine demeanor. As Bar Centrale is part of the Terroni chain, we thought it would just be a fairly decent place to have a post-movie light meal; however, we were pleasantly surprised that it surpassed those expectations.
