Clearly I’m on an Italian kick, because my next stop was Centro Cafe, located on Center Street in Riverwest. I have to say, I do like this part of this little neighborhood – everyone seems to know everyone and there’s a lot of unique restaurants and shops.
Centro Cafe has Italian staples as well as more unique dishes (I had duck bacon carbonara – who knew duck bacon was a thing?). Everything was super delicious, super pretty, and the service was fast and wonderful. They have gluten free options too – including a flourless chocolate cake we had that was SO AMAZING.
The only downside to my experience was accidentally forgetting my leftovers on the table. Seriously, so sad. But – to that point, the prices at this place are reasonable, even for a single meal, but the portions are large enough that you’ll probably have leftovers, so… bonus points.
