If you're in the area and looking for a genuine Italian meal, I suggest you try Centro.

I'm from San Diego and travel frequently across the globe.

Decor is new and clean...including the bathrooms!

Selection of wine is wide and deep for both white and red.

The appetizers are genuine Italian:

- Calimari & Shrimp is tasty and fresh
- Zucchini crisps are excellent...a must
- good olives...hard to find good olives
- bread with olive oil is very, very good
- must try the prosciutto and salami

Meals:

Highly recommend the pesto pasta with shrimp

Calamari salad was fantastic

Simple rigatoni was tasty and fresh

In closing, if you're looking for a good Italian restaurant on the east end of Long Island, you should try Centro.

From my global travel experience this is a restaurant pushing upward and striving to reach 5 stars.

It gets my vote!

Food always fine and thoughtfully considered. Classic Italian and fine attention to detail.
The front end staff has lost touch with clientele, a shame for such a young venture. They will not think outside the box when confronted with customer satisfaction issues. They would rather argue from their perspective.
I asked if the kitchen could substitute veal for Chicken Parmigiana and would it be scaloppine and was told by wait staff that they could do it. I was served a Veal Chop instead an then then scolded by hostess for my mistake. Seems the kitchen doesn't do scaloppine (thin)..
Oh well, living in the Hamptons

Went with an 8:00 reservation for 6, this past Saturday night. I requested outdoor garden dining when we arrived, and was told, I needed to let them know beforehand...after a couple of minutes we were shown to an inside table, but I was not happy. After I explained i rate restaurants, it took only a few extra minuets and we were shown to a gorgeous outdoor garden table, thank you. Our waiter although very nice and friendly, forgot 2 of our appetizers, apologized, after we brought it to his attention, as half the table had theirs...he asked if we still wanted the appetizers, we all said yes, he still didn't bring them..he did offer a round of drinks, and a dessert, so sweet,but we kept saying we still would like the appetizers, but never got them. Food was very good to excellent for the most part. Had we had received our requested appetizers , our party all would say thumbs up!,,

Tried Centro as we had eaten at the prior establishment. The service was beyond slow and this was a Monday evening. Can't get over the cost esp drinks. $17 for 1 drink! And meals were equally as expensive. To make it worse the service was slow.

Portions were nice and food was fresh. A big plus. The timing of the orders was done right. The menu should be more specific when serving fried calamari in calamari salad though for those who do not eat fried foods.
Service needs an upgrade. The silverware is taken with the dirty appetizer dishes and not replaced. Water is not refilled unless requested. Not appropriate in my view.
Fix the service end and the place will boom.
