There is a lot of competion around Camden Lock of course, but I rather liked Bar Centrale. The staff were nice, they have Italian beer on draught, and the pizza was excellent. A handy drop in on the way to the Roundhouse and other nearby venues. Very reasonable prices too.

Visited last week on my annual break to London, accompanied by Davey Dite. As usual, service, staff and food excellent. Not a chain I think, so you get more friendly and personal service The manager (and owner?) Bruno even let me have a go on his guitar! Keep on Rockin'! Two complimentary limoncellos each! And two coffee cups given for... More

The restaurant we were planning to eat at was full so we walked past Bar Centrale & decided to give it a go. Really pleased we did, as the pizzas we ordered were delicious and different choices from most pizza places. Good choice of wine too, if you fancy a glass.

There was plastic in the pizza that we ordered. When we called to inform them they denied that we'd ordered from them. They then called us back once they realised that they were wrong, but blamed the problem on Deliveroo. The plastic was baked into the pizza, so Deliveroo had nothing to do with it. Not impressed and will not... More

Best pizza in London! Good service, cheap prices and good location (between Camden Town and Chalk Farm Tube stations).

Was nearby to Chalk farm and looked promising from the outside. Salad was lovely and fresh, calzone was a little bit of a let down but pizza was good if a little soggy in the middle. Portions are generous and well priced. Service is OK.. servers sometimes need some help to figure out which table things are going to.

I wondered up and down Chalk Farm Rd into Camden and back looking for an Indian or Chinese but didn't see any so as I got closer to the Roundhouse I plumped for Bar Centrale as it looked ok and didn't seem overly expensive. The service was cheery and welcoming, but I thought the food could have been better. The... More

The place looks nice and there were plenty of room . The food is not great but alright and not expensive for London standards. Service was OK.
