I picked this restaurant just because for the convenience of where all diners needed to go after the breakfast. The location is good but the restaurant is too not so comfortable mainly due to the size and the seat arrangement. I was quite surprised that the coffee took so long to come, even all the food were on the table and the coffee was still not ready, my second order of the coffee also took long time to come. The breakfast dish could be better or maybe the Chef didn't work that early? I do like their croissant and definitely will stop by for pastries at the address Server gave me that is close to Yonge & King.

The food was fantastic! We absolutely loved the pandolci. The scrambled eggs and truffle dish could have used more toast

My experience at this restaurant was beyond what anyone could wish for. From the moment we walked in, we were actually welcomed by one of the chefs, Adriano. His pleasant demeanor and welcoming attitude instantly made us feel more comfortable; considering we had never been there... and we chose this on a whim.

They sat us down, allowing us to choose our seat (as it was busy, but not overly crowded).

The main waitress and the bar staff that assisted with bringing the food, were extremely courteous and well versed in the food menu along with wine pairing! They honestly took the anxiety and stress of ordering from an unfamiliar menu, right away.

(FUN FACT: the special of he day, is rarely/ never repeated)

We had the chickpea fries with parmigiana as our appetizer - too die for!!( SIDE BAR: can be a tad salty, but still so amazing). For the main course We ordered the duck special of the day, paired with a glass of their white Giulian, and the Bolognese with a not so “full tasting” glass of red. The recommendation was spot on! Their explanation of the wine pairing with the food options was not overwhelming at all... Actually, it made the experience fun and super easy to decide.

(FUN FACT: all the wine served in this venue can only be bought there, by the case)

Finally dessert! The homemade gelato paired with an almond tart-drool. If you are an almond fan, this is definitely something you should order. The tart had a slight hint of zesty lemon, while the gelato, was not too sweet at all! Perfect match

This restaurant is definitely under rated and over looked. It’s quaint/modern style of decor, with hints of old school wood and exposed brick make this space, a place to really enjoy yourself and the company you are with.

I am just an ordinary person. They made me feel like royalty. The genuine care that is put into the food along with the service, is what every restaurant should strive for!

Bar Centrale literally “raised the bar” to new height!

Thank you!

Food quality always reluably good.

Normally great dining experience was marred by slow kitchen this time. Over an hour wait after our appertizers for mains.

Server and sommelier were very knowledgeable about wines.

Bar Centrale is one of my favourite places. The food is authentic Italian prepared with quality ingredients.
My niece and her new partner were in from out of town and we had lunch there. The calamari and risotto were BIG hits. Really exceptional.
I often meet friends there for breakfast, lunch and dinner....and I often bump into friends there. The decor is great, the terrace is great, the food is great and very well priced.
