Il Centro commands an impressive position at Brisbane’s Eagle St Pier, overlooking the colourful lights of the city reflected in the Brisbane River. Since it first opened in 1992 this restaurant has drawn crowds of people to its dining room which spills out onto a terrace. The menu may be titled modern Italian, but Il Centro’s creations are unashamedly Queensland - and unashamedly delicious. Expect friendly service in relaxed, welcoming surrounds.
The food served is of a highly creative modern Italian style. The popular sandcrab lasagne with creamed crustacean sauce is Italian in style, but fresh and inventive in recipe. The rest of the menu follows the same appetising trend. Dishes from fresh crab and avocado salad with tomato gazpacho, to veal scaloppine with fettuccine are available, all done in an inimitably original fashion. Sommelier Shaun Gomes presides over an award-winning wine list, which offers over 250 high-quality Australian and Italian wines. Cocktails include the sumptuously-named Tuscan Sunset which is a delicate floral combination of elderflower and yellow chartreuse, perfectly complemented by the zesty botanicals of the Tanqueray Gin.
Il Centro, quite simply, is an institution of rare excellence. It offers great food, stylish design and friendly service, all in one of the most scenic locations which central Brisbane has to offer.
