Three stars for the entertainment. The food was mediocre, the owner was so busy dancing and drinking that he seems to be unconscious with regard for the food & service. Go for after-dinner drinks at the bar.

I have been trying to convince my wife to go here for several years. The menu looked great but it didn't appeal to her. Well I guess she knew best. The service was fast and friendly but my dish was inedible. They comped me with a whopping half price on that item and on the way home we stopped at... More

In the weekend, this is one of the liveliest restaurants especially in the Northwood area. That's due largely to the pianist and singer Ray Chang. He's amazing. On a Wednesday night it's incredibly quiet with seating relegated to the sidewalk or an area to the left of the entrance. Food is good, service is good and then menu is consistent... More

Pros: If you are 65 and up, it can get busy for that age range at night. It is known for being the "silver-back" restaurant. If you can get inside the small piano room,which is the only place you can hear the music really, it has some entertainment. Some people do not like that because it gets hot and sweaty... More

Atmosphere is nice. Food was so so. We were a party of 10, and 3 meals had to go back as it came out cold. The food was not great, but the music compensated for it. Ray the entertainer was great and had everyone on their feet. He engaged the diners and included them in his act.

We were there on a Saturday night as we had purchased a groupon previously. My mom was in town and we brought her along. We got a table outside as the room w the piano was full. (It has apparently become a sensation amongst locals). When the piano guy, Ray Chang, began to play it all changed. The sound from... More

Sure, Cafe Centro isn't the best place in the area for Italian food, and sure it gets crowded and noisy, but don't go for quiet fine dining..... go to let your hair down and have some serious fun!! The food is good enough and the service is great. And the entertainment is off the charts. As Ray cranks up the... More

I was a little skeptical going here when I saw the reviews. But that being said, we had an awesome time! Yes, it is packed. Yes it is loud. Yes, the servers are super busy. But that is the experience. Very European style of a night out DINING. If you are looking for fast food and a quiet night out,... More

good food with reasonable prices, Piano player in the back dining room, and outside dining when not too hot. Otherwise enjoy the inside dining room for good conversation

We sat in the front dining room against the brick wall where there is a long couch/bench and several tables. The tables are so close together it is basically community dining. There was a couple sitting next to us - about 18 inches away - and the man offered to hold my wife's hand for me. When the waitress took... More

Cafe Centro is a staple of Downtown Northwood. We are an upscale Italian restaurant that offers a line of Northern Italian gourmet food featuring innovative, premium pastas and a rich selection of seafood. With its inclusive list of wines, drinks, and signature dishes, there will always be something for everyone! The cuisine is high quality at a fair price and ranged from Free Range Chicken to fresh seafood and homemade pasta's and Gourmet Pizza. The Cafe Centro Piano Bar has entertainment seven nights a week during the High Season and the Piano player starts at Seven O'clock. Our Piano Room is warm and cozy but, elegant as well as charming. We also offer dining in our atmospheric main front room, and on our outdoor veranda along side of Bougainvilleas and lush greenery and beautiful Gardenia.
