I dined here with work colleagues.The food was very nice and quite varied and the wine choice quite extensive.But I thought it was a bit pricy so have only given 4 stars

And we were not disappointed at all. It's not easy these days to get the great view, great service and great food but we did find it at Il Centro - for my husbands birthday. We ordered the Arancini, Salt and Pepper Squid, Cauliflower Soup, Crab Lasagna, and Passionfruit soufflé. It was all fabulous. I would of loved a lot... More

This really is classy restaurant located right on the water by the restaurant district of downtown Brisbane. We were lucky but reservations are strongly advised. Camille, our French waitress, made us feel as we were in a top restaurant in France. Professional and yet friendly. The choice of specials and general menu gave something for everyone. I had special wine... More

The waiter was nice and efficient. The servings were sufficient. The wine was nice. The food was on the tasteless side. The chef is clearly afraid of strong flavours. The prices were acceptable. They claimed they had wifi but it never worked for me. Not sure I would go back.

Most of us jumped on the Rivercat at Newfarm for the short journey to Eagle Street Pier which is the best time to appreciate the Brisbane River (in the dark so you can't see it) and the pretty city lights but parking is available nearby. We'd heard good things but our evening started shakily when the restaurant didn't have our... More

Il Centro has long been regarded as one of Brisbane's best restaurants. Located in the heart of Brisbane's premier dining precinct, Eagle Street Pier, the multi-award-winning restaurant enjoys sweeping views of the Brisbane River and Story Bridge.

Since 1992, we've provided guests with a fine balance of casual yet elegant al fresco and indoor dining with a modern Italian flavour. Our innovative menu and superb location have made us a popular rendezvous for Brisbane's business community, local residents and visitors alike.

Regular guests and first time diners always feel welcome at Il Centro. Good old-fashioned hospitality has been a major ingredient for our continued success. Your hosts, owners Andy and Marcia Georges, together with restaurant manager, Zahir Meher- Homji and sommelier, Shawn Gomes, have a gift for making guests feel like old friends. And this is an attitude you'll find instilled in all our staff.

Our innovative modern Italian menu has a distinctly Queensland spin - best illustrated by our signature dish, the legendary Sand Crab Lasagne. And our executive chef, Catherine Anders, uses only the freshest local produce (including Queensland's best seafood and prime cuts) to create a selection to tempt all tastes.

If you're planning on joining us soon, why not stop off for a pre-dinner drink at Andy and Marcia's celebrated cocktail bar, Mr & Mrs G Riverbar. The welcoming bar is opposite the restaurant, overlooking the river.

Il Centro in the ideal setting for private functions and special events. We have a number of set menus available to suit your occasion. If you have an enquiry please call us.

We look forward to the pleasure of your company very soon.
