It’s been 4 years since last time I had dinner at Il Centro. Food is still very good, service is excellent, good selection of wines and reasonable pricing for restaurant at river front location. I would recommend it anytime.

We were visitors from Adelaide. Had dinner here on Saturday night. Had a great table outside. Service was excellent. Food was delicious. Not cheap but worth every cent. We were with a wonderful couple from Brisbane. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Il Centro is a solid performer. Excellent range of Italian wines. The sand crab lasagne is the signature but is a full on creamy explosion. Try the soft shell crab instead. Fish are otherwise excellent. Always worth it.

Il Centro has long been regarded as one of Brisbane's best restaurants. Located in the heart of Brisbane's premier dining precinct, Eagle Street Pier, the multi-award-winning restaurant enjoys sweeping views of the Brisbane River and Story Bridge. Since 1992, we've provided guests with a fine balance of casual yet elegant al fresco and indoor dining with a modern Italian flavour. Our innovative menu and superb location have made us a popular rendezvous for Brisbane's business community, local residents and visitors alike. Regular guests and first time diners always feel welcome at Il Centro. Good old-fashioned hospitality has been a major ingredient for our continued success. Your hosts, owners Andy and Marcia Georges, together with restaurant manager, Zahir Meher- Homji and sommelier, Shawn Gomes, have a gift for making guests feel like old friends. And this is an attitude you'll find instilled in all our staff. Our innovative modern Italian menu has a distinctly Queensland spin - best illustrated by our signature dish, the legendary Sand Crab Lasagne. And our executive chef, Catherine Anders, uses only the freshest local produce (including Queensland's best seafood and prime cuts) to create a selection to tempt all tastes. If you're planning on joining us soon, why not stop off for a pre-dinner drink at Andy and Marcia's celebrated cocktail bar, Mr & Mrs G Riverbar. The welcoming bar is opposite the restaurant, overlooking the river. Il Centro in the ideal setting for private functions and special events. We have a number of set menus available to suit your occasion. If you have an enquiry please call us. We look forward to the pleasure of your company very soon.
