    Such a wonderful experience! If you like Italian you really need to pay Avner a visit at Cento Pasta Bar. The vibe is really nice there with a great patio surrounding a beautiful olive tree with great tunes pumping away. Not overly loud, but just right to notice and enjoy. Ok so the food; amazing! The Radicchio Salad was beautifully prepared and delicious, the cauliflower was really unique and a perfect blend of crunch. The pastas are superb and prepared with lots of TLC, the squid ink looked amazing, but I ended up going with the gnocchi which was perfectly Al Dente and melted in your mouth. The Spicy Pomdoro was more flavorful than spicy and a great comfort food experience. For dessert we went with the Banana Tiramisu which was a fun twist on tradition. They had a water bowl and lots of love to share with my boy! Very dog friendly and the tables have some nice spacing so there is room for your furry friend. A must visit for pasta lovers!

    I have been to this amazing restaurant a couple times before prior to having our fur baby and absolutely love the location, the atmosphere and of course the food. Was able to reserve an outdoor table and got to take our beagle and boy was the experience just as great. They have such a beautiful front patio with a gorgeous olive tree in the center. No cement flooring as a dirt sandy gravel covers the front patio, which gives a back yard feel to it. My pup absolute loved and felt comfortable hanging out and was offered his own water (in a Dog Sniffer Bowl at that!). Their large front wall is all glass so you don't feel separated from the indoor dining area, and, depending on your seat can even catch a glimpse of the kitchen. Many heat lamps to keep you toasty on chiller nights.

    Menu has options for vegetarians, pescatarians and meat lovers. I'm a vegetarian so I started off with the Cauliflower with Hazelnuts and Cara Cara Orange appetizer followed by the Spicy Pomodoro entree with Ricotta topped with a spectacular Basil Oil. Couldn't decide on their deserts so we had all 3. Strawberry shortcake twist with a Pavlova, Hazelnut Mouse Cake with Salted Caramel and a Banana Cream Pie Tiramisu. All were amazing and paired well with an Americano.

    Absolutely one of my favorite spots with an amazing friendly fun chef, Chef Avner which can be seen kicking butt in the kitchen whipping up these amazing dishes.

    Highly recommend you make your reservations now. Any seat is a great seat.

Cento was started from Avner's desire to share his experiences with the people around him through cooking. At Cento, Avner is responsible for all facets of the kitchen, including menu design and development.

Avner brings his philosophy of thoughtful, seasonal ingredients to every dish with an element of fun. The concepts are simple - great food at affordable prices.
