Centini Restaurant & Lounge160 8 Ave SE, Calgary, AB T2G 0K6
A fine Italian restaurant on Stephen Avenue Walk, Centini has a huge and very diverse list. Owner Fabio Centini has really old vintages on his list. They reckon they have over 700 wines. Try choosing one! Also notable, many older vintages are available at very good prices. Many wines are also available in different size formats from half bottles to party-friendly 18-litre bottles.
In the Telus Convention Centre, Centini is an obvious choice for business people who need to take a luxurious break from the grind of conferencing, but it’s also a favourite of business types in need of a classy lunch. With its Italian-inspired menu (including both pizza and pasta) and a lengthy wine list, it’s no wonder the office crowd keeps returning, whether or not there’s a conference on the go.
This upscale Italian go-to spot has a stylish yet lightly casual air that befits its location in the city’s arts district. Settle into a multi-course meal in one of its dining rooms or in the long, central lounge, both of which overlook Stephen Avenue Walk. Take the chef’s lead and ask about the restaurant’s daily specials.
