I have enjoyed hundreds of meals at Cenzino. But, this Saturday was different. Not only was the food exceptional as always, but they reduced the number of tables to ensure a safe environment for all diners. What a thoughtful, proactive, considerate approach in this tenuous time. Salute to the Cenzino team for their concern for their patrons.
We had an early Saturday evening dinner, prior to the more restrictive social distancing and close of businesses. I was very impressed with the steps Cenzini had already taken. Tables were farther apart and they seated every other for the time we were there. Their food was fresh and delicious and there is no better service anywhere around. Top notch evening and so glad we chose Cenzino. Really a wonderful place
Excellent food and service. Back the second time in 3 weeks
Very nice restaurant and the staff was very professional and courteous. The food was delicious and served quickly.
Over the top fantastic! We love. Cenzino!! Always great food service and ambiance
We are regular customers at Cenzino and brought friends for a special occasion and as usual Rob did a fantastic job taking care of us..our friends enjoyed it and will be back...
Good choices for appetizers and main dishes.
Fantastic is all I can say!!! This is our go to restaurant for a fun filled evening with great food, service and entertainment.
Great atmosphere and great food. Really enjoy going there.
Celebrated a birthday. Regina was very helpful with a cake and beautiful table. Paige was a wonderful server. Very attentive!
Cenzino is a special occasion type of restaurant - special food at very high prices. The wait staff was very attentive, and we had a great time. I’d recommend the surf and turf, but my Caesar salad at home is better! Next time I’m going to try lunch!
The food is absolutely delicious and the service is outstanding!
Cenzino has been our “go to” place for over 17 years. My girlfriend and I met at Cenzino. We return at least once a year on that anniversary. This past time was on Valentine’s Day.
Cenzino never disappoints. You feel welcome when you arrive. Service is excellent, very professional. Food is delicious. The Restaurant was renovated a couple years back and it is beautiful.
We highly recommend!
Paige and Vincenzo were wonderful hosts, the food was delightful, and the environment was perfect. Personal yet elegant Italian restaurant with attention to detail.
Wonderful as usual!
Great food and great service.
We love cenzino because food is great and service always outstanding...our favorite waiter is Rob ..have had him for almost 3 years now, we have a daughter with special needs and she is treated like a queen,...his service can’t get any better....The Pogorelecs
It was a delightful experience. The dinner was exceptional and the wait staff very accommodating.
The best time we have had in a long time! Just what we were looking for good food and a fantastic atmosphere. We are still talking about what a perfect night it was! Thank you to Vinny our host and Johnnie for the entertainment! Can’t wait to come back. If I could give you 10 stars I would.
Service was excellent, food was Appetizer, GREAT, Main Dish GOOD, Desert GREAT
Enjoyed our dinner Pleasant atmosphere Good Martini
Excellent food and good service , we always enjoy having dinner at cenzino
Returning to Cenzino is always something I look forward to. I ask for Robert to be our server, he is a responsive and friendly.
The dinner specials are really SPECIAL and authentic Italian dishes but not overpriced.
Just the way to spend New Years Eve, without all the extra hooplas! Food and our server Vincent) were both excellent, and he was very knowledgeable which made our night out even more enjoyable overall.
We loved it both times we were there in the past month. The food is consistently wonderful, all the staff is friendly and the atmosphere homey as well as elegant.
We dine at Cenzinos often and always have had good overall meals and experiences, but have never tried it for a special event like New Years Eve. We went this past Tuesday to celebrate the new year, simply stated, in my opinion the $125 per person for a 5pm seating just wasn’t worth it. Sorry Cenzino ownership, if you choose to do this next year for $125 per we definitely won’t be there. Given the menu options and considering all else that was a max $85 per person meal.
Everything was fabulous, food, service, our table. I'm not exaggerating, fabulous! My only complaint is the price for a drink. Cosmopolitan was $14.
Christmas Eve dinner with the family was wonderful! Highly recommend it!
We have been going to Cenzino’s for Christmas Eve for the past 5 years. Regina and staff are always so warm &inviting and the level of hospitality is exceptional. The food is always delicious! Thanks again for another great experience!
Love love Cenzino staff awesome food delicious
Food was amazing. Staff was very pleasant and attentive but not overbearing.
Dinner was wonderful! We had a pasta dish, a veal dish, a chicken dish, eggplant for appetizer and chocolate mousse cake for dessert! Everything was delicious! Thank you!
It was great in all response.
My girlfriend and I agreed to meet at Cenzino 17 years ago. The rest is history. We try to return every year. It never disappoints. From the stuffed olives in my martini, to the delicious deserts.
This is a class restaurant. You really should consider it as a special occasion venue for dinner.
Service started out promising- had 3 servers introduce themselves but when it came to service they were no where to be found. Requested a water refill when food was served and did not see any server until they brought the check. Ordered a shrimp dish with grilled vegetables and it came with mashed potatoes, 2 slices of grilled onion and 4 slices of grilled zucchini. Not worth $32. Was disappointed- was expecting more.
The service was kind of slow but the food was good.
Great meal. They do not rush you out of the place. 7:15 Reservation. Did not leave the restaurant until 8:45. Good wine, good food, cant beat it.
Jenn and Rob are the best!
