We started off with the Calamari rings which we were told that it was only available on weekends. Being inland, I guess calamari is hard to come by or their weekday clientele isn't very adventurous. The rings were a nice start but I wished they doused them in tomato sauce instead of serving them dry.
Everyone who has been to Il Centro had raved about their pizza and so, we ordered one to share. We were hoping if we were still hungry, we would try their pasta too. But once the pizza was served, there was absolutely no way to fit anything else. They loaded up the toppings which included proscuitto, capicollo, mortadella, salami and pepperoni. It was an Italian feast for four but we were only a twosome. The dough was springy and thick, just like the way my wife likes it. I usually like the way New Yorkers make pizza, so thin that you can fold it in half like a sandwich.
To finish off our meal, we ordered the house specialty, Italian sorbet which was freshly made onsite and again, only available on weekends. We enjoyed our meal very much and will be back for their pasta.
I give Il Centro ***+ and a spend limit of $$.
