Centrolina is an Italian restaurant and market, locally owned and operated by Chef Amy Brandwein, set in Washington’s CityCenterDC development. The Osteria showcases a seasonally driven menu of authentic and innovative Italian dishes offered for lunch and dinner. Chef Brandwein's menu is inspired from the seasons, Italian regionality and the wide variety of Chef curated product in the adjoining market.

The market showcases a selection of imported Italian specialty items along with locally sourced meat, sustainable fish, and produce from local farms. The Centrolina kitchen produces daily hand crafted fresh pasta and sauces, antipasti and entrees available for takeaway.

For parties of 7 people or more, we do require a prix-fixe menu, please email caroline@centrolinadc.com for additional information.

    I do recommend Branzino. It is very well prepared and the cooking by wood grants a very tasteful experience. Personnel polite and smart, waiting time as expected to properly prepare the food.

    Great atmosphere and friendly service. Food was excellent. Deserts fantastic. Unfortunately we sat down for 8pm and about 50% of the entrees were unavailable. Respect the flexibility of menu and constant update, but hard to experience a restaurant when you are so limited in options.

    The service was very slow, the portion sizes small, hence turned out to be expensive, although the taste was very good
