Centini Restaurant & Lounge
Our server was fantastic. I wish I could remember his name so that I could give him the praise he deserves. He did a wonderful job in making us feel special , he was so personable and attentive . Even though the restaurant was very busy with no empty tables, and many large tables no once did he seem rushed. The food was awesome. I have eaten here many times and never have I had a bad meal. The kitchen always impresses. The place was very lively which is what I expected since it was the time for Christmas parties and I think there were a couple going on at the time.
We had a wonderful time.
Great food, great service and a nice setting join an evening out. Seafood linguine and Dover sole we’re excellent, and desserts we’re delicious (crème brûlée, tiramisu and cheese cake). We’ll be back (again)!
Nice dinner with friends, service was very good and friendly food was very good
Ordered tagliatelle - taste was great except for the pasta they served was fettucini noodles. Service was so-so. Tables right in front of the kitchen were high traffic, wasn't a very romantic setting. Overall it was ok - overpriced for the seating space.
The food and service are excellent. One of my favorite places for a great meal and great service. Would highly recommend for a date night or special occasion.
Class meal, class service and we had fun. Wine list should have more Canadian content.
This is my second visit. The food was amazing. Price point a little on high side. But I have no complaints about the service or the food.
Dining in advance of a theatre booking. Time sensitive but the staff and kitchen made it work as they always do.
Hostess is didn’t get to take our coats even thought we had taken them off. Only after we asked did she take them. She confirmed our reservation where I had noted we were going to theatre and celebrating a birthday. Restaurant was empty and tried to seat us at an undesirable table at the front door. Service after that was adequate. Food was very good.
Food was not served in time for concert so we had to stay hungry all evening. Restaurant made no apologies.
Wonderful meal with great service.
Service was excellent as usual. Food was on point as I would expect from Centini.
What a great place for Italian cuisine. The service was cordial, friendly and prompt. The prosciutto board was a great way to start and the veal scallopini was tender and flavorful. We loved our meal and will be back whenever in Calgary.
Great food and incredible service!
We loved this restaurant. The food is authentic and absolutely top-notch. Very pleasant and efficient staff. Great all around 👍🙂👍
Had lunch here with friends from out of town. Very impressed with food and service. Also lots of gluten free options. Going back for dinner!
Great food and awesome server!
My fiancé and I went for a date night and wanted to try something new. We arrived early and were seated immediately..there were very few customers but the service was quite slow but once our server came he was very engaging. We ordered our food but found the food very tasty but the portions were a little small. Hubby had an appy and a main and he left hungry and he’s not a huge eater.
Incredibly delicious food, wonderful service and a great place to celebrate a special occasion!!
The food and service were excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant for for any occasion.
My daughter has been visiting me from Vancouver. We ate out many times - she said it was the best meal that she had in two weeks.
Haven’t been to the restaurant in probably 5+ year. I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the food. I cook myself; better than most chefs and I would have to say everything was genuinely on point. Price is reasonable and service was pretty sharp as well. Very solid by my standards no question!!
Nice spot. A bit pricey.
The food was very good; however, the service was not. Our waiter clearly would have preferred to be somewhere else. Attention to detail was not there. I hope it was an off day for them. This place should be amble to do better than what we experienced. I would go back for the food but probably won’t due to the poor service.
Amazing brunch experience for Mother’s Day. Pastries and pasta exceeding expectations.
We chose to go to Centini’s for Mother’s Day Brunch.
I have been to Centini’s for dinner a number of times and loved it. But this time was a mess.
Made a reservation and was there fairly early (due to our kids needing naps). Even though we were the first people there, we were given a table back beside the bathrooms and not in the beautiful front dining room.
Service was really poor. Even trying to flag a server for a coffee top up was difficult. It took three tries to find a pepper milk or salt grinder that either had salt or pepper and even functioned.
The food definitely wasn’t up to the dinner standards.
Maybe they had a junior guy in the kitchen for this “special” service.
The baked goods were by far the highlight. They should open a coffee shop with those things!!
I know I’ll be back to Centini’s but I’ll stick to dinner, where I can be more confident in the product.
Excellent food and service, however I was highly disappointed when the kitchen made an error with my entree resulting in my party of 3 having to dine while I waited more than 15 minutes for the correct dish to be served. Adding to the disappointment was the extended time required to correct the meal, which unfortunately placed us under an unanticipated time constraint to make our seats for a play. Naturally errors can happen, however the server/restaurant did not address the error despite our discussions.
Best Italian restaurant in Calgary! Service is always wonderful and they efficiently accommodate theatre-goers!
Excellent service, great food and a diverse menu. Staff very friendly.
I thought there was one too many tables... the waiters didn’t really have enough room to navigate and it was impossible for them to not bump into guests. Otherwise very nice meal and the service was good.
The restaurant was fairly full when we arrived. We had a nice table near the window for the four of us. We enjoyed a drink before dinner and everyone had a starter. Our main meals were well prepared and tasty. We also had dessert and coffee. Service was very attentive throughout. We had a lovely evening.
The service and food is always 5 star. We would visit more but do find it too pricey to visit outside a special occasion.
Food is delicious (crab sushi is amazing), service was not great; they were kind but inefficient and slow
Everything about this place is fabulous, just like the owner Fabio :)
Server did not pay us any attention and walked away twice while we were still talking to him. Perhaps he had a bad day but it did not seem like he cared to serve us.
Had the crab and lobster ravioli, soup and avocado salad. Food was excellent.
Appreciated that we were asked if we were going to the theatre, they expedited our service we made it to the show in plenty of time and the food was excellent.
