    Gnocchi was awesome as was the ragu. Service excellent and would recommend this place to anyone. Great wine list and although COVIDSafe made the place seem empty we had a great night

    We have been here before prior to COVID and loved it. It was still very good but due to social distancing, lacked a bit of atmosphere but that is understandable. The food was good and the staff and service very good. We will certainly go back again.

    Love Centra, never been disappointed there. They do "COVID" restrictions well. Not quite the same as pre-covid but would highly recommend. We will be back

    What a great find. The staff were extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. The food was about the best we've ever eaten in Geelong. We couldn't fault our time there.

    Fully enjoyed our meals at Centra. Everything we ordered was spot on. Limited menu after the Christmas break but what was available was still wonderful. Reasonable prices. Staff were excellent also.

    Lovely Italian menu. Good variety. Larger sized meals. Pleasant service. Though it was a challenge as the evening went on to get service and dirty plates stayed for far too long. It was fairly busy

    I enjoy the pizza and pasta here. Staff move promptly and manage big groups well. The atmosphere for a couple dinner missed the mark and felt more like a pub but overall i would recommend for the food.

    Menu looking tired after being the same for 3 years. Even the specials are repeats. These regulars really want some variety. Service below previous good standard.

    The food and the service was lovely. It was a little noisy as there were a couple of big groups but otherwise all good. Thank you to the staff for your service.

    Booked 1 week ago for my birthday dinner with family, day before rang and cancelled booking because it was the night of the grand final and the anticipated it would be quiet...but we’re welcome to go to their new steak restaurant...poor form in my eyes, I won’t be booking here again or at their steak restaurant.

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.
