Centro Ristorante e bar, located in Wollongong’s City, radiates a modern and sophisticated elegance. Specialising in Italian cuisine using classical techniques, the team have created a modern and minimalist environment to indulge in these traditional delights.

Inside, Centro’s contemporary white marble bar, soaring ceilings, and bright abstract art work make it a sophisticated yet warm environment.

To begin, traditional breads like fresh ciabatta and brushetta will please, and the anti pasti selections will delight. ‘Beef carpaccio’ (thin slices of raw beef fillet) with garlic oil, lemon juice, black pepper, parmesan and rocket will have you in a jolly haze and dreaming of the possibilities of your main.

Famous for their classic pastas and risotto’s, Centro’s options are broad ranging, home made, affordably priced and indulgent. ‘Creamy pasta with prawns, smoked salmon, spring onions and roasted capsicum’ is a big favourite.

The main fish selections include the classically cooked Barramundi fillet al cartoccio, sure to put Nona’s cooking to shame.

To finish, send your senses soaring with 'Vanilla crème brulee,' served with biscotti or 'Flourless chocolate cake,' with vanilla ice cream and strawberry coulis.

The kids are taken care of too, with their own reasonably priced Kids Menu, complete with uncomplicated options.
