Best Italian food – We love to eat out and find that Centanni has one of the best value and taste in town.
The setting and atmosphere are so warm and welcoming.
From a simple dish as Penne Arrabbiata to one of the special listed on the black board, everything is so good and so reasonable!
We're regular customers and will be back again with more friends.
Perfect!! – My parents grew up in the Marina and they have been linked to here for years. You walk in the front door and you just get enveloped in the smell of the Italian food waiting inside. They have the best deli meats and cheeses and be sure to pick up some raviolis to take home. Mozzarella is shipped in fresh from Italy twice a week as well. This place just reminds me why I like being Italian.
Great Find! – Almost hate 2 tell other people about it except that the people who run it are the best. Great service, terrific food and very fair prices. Very Venice! Sweet!
Citysearch Editorial Review – This charming neighborhood trattoria’s warm and friendly atmosphere invites Venice artists, musicians, families and friends to stop in for Italian comfort food and lively conversation. By day sunshine spills into the tall windows and highlights pale olive walls, high exposed beams and sleek, dark leather and wood chairs. At night candles create a romantic atmosphere, perfect for a casual date. Owner Helen Wassell-Paez and Sicilian chef Marin Santos, formerly of Dolce, offer a sprawling menu of panini sandwiches, Mediterranean salads, pastas and authentic, traditional Italian dishes, all at great prices--nothing’s over $16. Hot and cold sandwiches include homemade beef meatballs and provolone, eggplant parmigiana, grilled vegetable, and prosciutto, mozzarella and arugula. The pasta menu features smoked salmon farfalle, pumpkin ravioli with butter and sage, and tagliatelle with beef ragu, while mains include steak tagliata and chicken piccata.
Awesome – The food is fantastic, the hospitality is amazing, and the prices are just ridiculous. Bring your lady and your own bottle of wine, and you can have a three course meal for under $50 including gratuity. Can't beat that. I am definitely gonna be coming back over and over.
