    Shown to our table, but not told there was no table service. Outdoor table top was sticky! After waiting 15 minutes+ for service my husband went inside to be told order drinks/ food at bar. Requested waiter to take food order at table, but waiter could not say what fish was being served, & failed to ask how the steak was to be cooked! Food was lovely, but a sirloin steak was served cut into pieces? For prices charged service was terrible. Saw business is for sale probably due to service lacking. Quiet Sunday trade but staff were disappointing.

    Always enjoy our times at Centra - its a great welcoming place to eat and meet friends - food is spectacular and there is an extensive wine list to choose from. The staff are always friendly, helpful, accomodating and patient.

    Have to wait an hour for meals with children, then starter and main meal came out at the same time. Told waiter I wasn’t happy to have entree and main at the same time and he didn’t care, Manager was nice and apologised the misunderstanding but the waiter had already done the damage, no customer service. Shame it soiled my daughter’s birthday dinner

    Great Italian food. We had a pizza and seafood linguine and both were excellent. Service was friendly, professional and attentive. Wished we lived in Geelong so we could eat there again.

    Our group was well catered for in all respects. One had particular food requirements and the issues were dealt with discretely and well prior to menu taking. The meal was very tasty and not any lesser to the other meals served. Very well considered and catered for. Will recommend to those with tricky diets.

    The table service was invasive. One particular female waitress was forever in our faces! The assigned staff member was fine, she was over the top. The food as okay, nothing spectacular. I would not go back.

    Was looking for a good Italian restaurant in Geelong & have found an extremely good one that we are all looking forward to going back to so that we can try more things in the menu. Added to fantastic food, the service was excellent with staff being very attentive and pleasant.

    it's hard for me to find time to visit any other places when the food at Centra is honestly that good that there is only one other local venue I choose to frequent. The menu is simple with items everyone is familiar with but the quality and authenticity of the food is a level far beyond anything I could find in most establishments, between Centra and my other favourite restaurant I cant decide what one is better.

    Very impressive venue. Warm welcome and excellent wait staff. Good knowledge of wine list when asked. Food really delicious. Chef actually came and discussed an alternative menu item when kitchen realised that they had run out of the one originally requested. Very busy for a Tuesday night. Prices are quite acceptable. We dined with an interstate visitor who wants to eat here again when he returns. Centra is our 'go to' in Geelong for beautiful Italian food.

About the restaurant

Meet you at Centra

With a focus on architecture, food and drink - Centra Hotel seamlessly links all three delivering a harmonious dining experience that caters to all the senses. The venue, originally constructed in 1854, has been given a recent facelift by renowned architect Tarryn Joyce who has created a comfortable contemporary space, which still highlights elements of Centra's history.

The menu is rustic and Italian, driven by local produce and a desire to deliver fresh, flavoursome, expressive and honest. The antipasti offering is perfect for an afterwork snack, while the primi, secondi and pizza listings are great for a hearty feast (the pappardelle lamb ragu is simply mouth-watering). The menu is beautifully complemented by the drinks list, which offers a large range of beers and ciders, plus some locally sourced wines and craft brews. Come with your mates and sit out in the leafy courtyard, bring the family for a big ol' catch up or bring your partner for a casual date night - this place can cater for all.

Best dish: prosciutto & rucola pizza followed by tiramisu.
