Excellent

Just wandered in last Saturday afternoon and had a fabulous lunch. Enjoyed a delicious bottle of wine that the waiter recommended and had scrumptous grilled tuna and perfectly dressed salads. My dining companions also loved their pastas and meat entrees. Our waiter was personable and polite and I must comment on the perfection with which my artichokes were cooked..outstanding! Wish this were in my neighborhood!

Great food

The food was awesome, went for dinner on a friday night. Plenty of restaurants turned us away becuase we were wearing sneakers, but this place let us in & really gave first class service. Amazing food and the chocolate souffle was perfect! highly recommended ! try the artichoke and fennel appetizer! it's summery and fresh!

delicious for lunch or dinner.

I stopped in at Centolire on Wednesday for lunch with my daughter. We were having a busy day celebrating the end of her school year and Centolire was the perfect spot to rest and refuel. My daughter was delighted with the pasta bolognese and home-made gelato. I had a wonderful insalata tri colore and asparagus risotto. I dont always fare so well in mainstream restaurants as a vegetarian, but I had several great choices, and what I picked was delicious.

Delicious and worthwhile value

I went in for lunch... I was promptly seated and enjoyed great service. The Prix Fixe Lunch menu is an excellent deal. If you get the choice, take the upstairs dining room, as you have some great views for people watching.

Used to be a great restaurant, not anymore

Centolire used to be one of my favorite restaurants. Not anymore. We went a few weeks ago and it was horrible. The appetizers were average and the food overall was average at best. However, some of the group got the hangar steak with smoked cheese which the waiter recommended. It was one of the worst dishes they have ever tried. I tried it as well and found it equally terrible. We expressed our displeasure to our waiter and got no response. Centloire is now just another over-priced and overrated restaurant.

Outstanding

Brought a friend here for his birthday dinner and the manager & staff were more than accomodating to my special requests, including the presentation of a dish that wasn't even on the season's menu. Service was impeccable without being at all impersonal, and the impressive wine list, incredible food and subtle ambience made for a memorable evening. It's definitely a pricey restaurant, but I promise that everything about it was oh-so-worth-it!!! My friend and I were *so* impressed from start to finish - I'll come back in a heartbeat. Highly recommended.

Looking for Diverse Tuscan Menu ??

You may find yourself trying to tame superlatives after enjoying Centolire's diverse culinary delights. Starting with the interior you'll be convinced that you've been transported from the UESide to an authentic Tuscan restaurant that comes with an attentive accented wait staff. Bring your appetite to this culinary experience. Wet your palate with their selection of cheese's and variety of Southern Italian vino's. Move on to a table-side fettucine w/carbonara sauce, truffles, pecorino, (unrivaled throughout NYC). Seafood: If seafood is more your taste then dive into the red snapper livornese. Skin side pan-seared filet with shallot, tomatoes, green olives and basil served with steamed potatoes. Always fresh never hiding the essence of the seafood taste with a camouflage of over saucing. Suggested dessert: For dessert try the tangerine soufflé that when accompanied by a dessert wine or Italian grappa leaves a reassuring imprint that you'll bring your tastebuds back to Centrolire.

Exquisite

My husband took me to Centolire for our 10th anniversary. The food was delicious and the staff friendly and helpful. This restaurant is a beautiful. I have suggested friends to go here for a wonderful meal in NYC. I suggest the same to any one else. The excitement of my 10th anniversary combined with the ambiance of the restaurant provided a truly romantic dinner.

this place is really good

Eat upstairs. The room is nice, not knock your socks off gorgeous, but adult pretty and appropriate. And the food is excellent. One of those expensive places that are relaxed and comfortable and despite the big tab, it makes you glad that you live in New York and can eat food of this quality when you want to.

alot of fanfare for mediocre food

The restaurant decor and service are fancy, but the food was surprisingly mediocre. The pasta dishes were not very flavorful, and the pasta and sauces did not taste freshly made. The Caesar salad was really mediocre, with poorly flavored dressing. The Parmesan cheese actually tasted like the Kraft brand. Sarabeth's had a better Caesar salad than theirs.
