I went a few months ago and there wasn’t any heat. The service was good at that time.

On my most recent visit the service was lacking. The server took our order and we had to flag people down in order to get items and the bill. Several servers walked by and the one that asked about dessert and completed the payment was rude and smelled of cigarette smoke. Very disappointing.

Great gem in the west end. Wide selection of appetizers that are great for sharing. The list of specials is always tempting- especially their ragu sauce.
Relaxed atmosphere with excellent service

Centro is an amazing eatery on Denman. My partner says they may have the best calamari he’s ever tasted. The pasta is homemade fresh and delicious. Everything I’ve had at Centro was stellar.
They have a bar that is top notch. I was surprised they had Aviation Gin along with many others including Empress. The martini was as good as mine at home.

I highly recommend this gem on the west end. Looking forward to eating here again.

I'm so pleased that Centro participated in Dine Out Vancouver which got me in the door. Each of the 3 courses were excellent, the service was great, I felt welcomed even as a non-wine-drinking single diner. It has the feel of a place you want for your regular go-to eatery. I will definitely be back. Serious yum.

Pasta and cocktails were excellent and I loved the vibe. We were in one of the rounded 2-person booths near the bar which were super cool, but a place to hang our coats would have been nice (we ended up sitting on them).

Things were going great until a mouse ran through the restaurant. That changed the ambience somewhat.

Went on a weekday night, the restaurant was extremely cute and cozy. The interior is bomb and definitely instagram-worthy! Food tasted amazing and fresh! The only down side was the second waitress :( the first waitress (about 5’2”) was nice and friendly and checked on us from time to time. The later taller waitress started to serve us after the previous lady got off, but this lady was not as easy-going as the first one. The bill wasn’t the correct amount, and after we told her, she simply said, “Everything is correct” without putting the effort to double check it. Other than this, everything was good and we would still come again!

One of the coolest dining rooms in the west end. We felt well taken care of and really enjoyed the food.

I love Centro. My neighbourhood go to, and I wish I got there more often. The food is reliably delicious, the drinks are very good and good value. Now that I can make a reservation, it's all perfect. Buonissimo!

We had an amazing meal; excellent prep and presentation. The daily special flatbread was so good. Excellent staff. Nice neighborhood casual restaurant with outstanding quality. We will be back for sure.

We only had a couple appys but they were very good. The Italian 75 cocktail was excellent—I would go back for it. Love the 70s decor.

Great decor, really disappointing food. Both pasta dishes were over cooked to the point where you couldn’t even twirl the noodle it just broke apart. It was overly salty and not an authentic dish. The decor was really awesome, but not worth it for the price and over cooked pasta. We won’t be going back.

I think they watered down the happy hour aperol spritz. Food was alright but not worth the hype, service was curt with us and slow with our food. Tiramisu was dry. At that price point there are far better options. Great decor though super retro. Won’t be back.

Excellent quality Italian food in Vancouver that is reasonably priced. Rare find. Best gnocchi I’ve had outside of NYC and Italy. Really.
