We had a very nice dinner at Centro. We were seated promptly, the service was attentive, though our wine was a little slow to the table, and the food came very promptly. The salmon was delicious as was the pasta. Big portions!

My wife and I go to Centro's frequently on Sat. date night and have never had a bad meal there. Italian cuisine, including homemade pasta; superb pizza, salads, excellent wine/bar list, etc. Always crowded, but surprisingly cozy; service is top notch. On our regular rotation. Highly recommended.

The ambiance, service and food were the best we've had in DSM since moving here in May. Their mojito was quite good, not too sweet and the blood orange sorbet was incredible. I had the chicken and prosciutto with a parmesan cream sauce (excellent) and my wife had a special sweet potato stuffed pasta she thoroughly enjoyed.

Centro was a fantastic experience. I took my fiancé there for a romantic birthday dinner. The environment was pleasing and all of the food was good. We had an appetizer, each a different entrée, and dessert, it was all well worth it. I will definitely be going again, and have been recommending to my friends.

we went for appetizers and wine . The fried Brussel sprouts were mostly raw, the deep fried raviolis were almost burned , and barely room temp. The giant meatballs were very good ,but came with no side of marinara sauce. Had to request that. Was not impressed ! Will give them another try, but it won't be for a while.
