Do you think $19,00 for a tequila is reasonable? Or $30 for The Prix Fixe (fixed table d'hôte menu) = an entree and an appetizer or a few cookies? If so, then this is suitable for you. The food is good, if a little slow in being served if they are busy (and they are usually busy). Ambience is good. I loved the poster of a young, Sophia Loren, with the caption, "Everything you see, I owe it to spaghetti." Supper for four will easily run you $250.00 before the tip.

The restaurant is very attractive,the servers were polite . That's where anything positive ended. The food took almost an hour to come to the table. When it came it was a big disappointment. There were 8 of us not one person liked there food. The chicken cutlet pamargian looked like it was a frozen dinner out of the micro wave. There was very little sauce and a little slab of cheese. The pasta was not cooked . I had the price fixed dinner that was suppose to come with desert. They put a few horrible store brought cookies on a plate. Very unappetizing. The price was high for what you got. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone

I have dined at this restaurant at least three times a month since it opened with my family and friends and just love it! It's a great place to sit in the bar area for cocktails and dinner and also for meeting new people.The occasions that I dined in the main and smaller dining rooms have not disappointed either for the atmosphere, service or food. They have something for everyone's preference on their menu; seafood, meat, homemade pasta and vegetarian choices. All entrees I tried were delicious. Also appreciate the pre-fix menu on Mondays to Wednesdays which allow me to fit it into my budget and go more often. I've also attended their wine pairing dinners which were excellent! I have recommended this place to other friends.

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!

Thank Keith M

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

We hope that you will join us again so that we have the chance to change your opinion of us. Looking forward to seeing you for a great meal from service to food!
