Santa Claus is coming to Centotre

November 28, 2009

Why not come in and have a bite to eat or a cup of our fantastic coffee and let the kids tell Santa what they want this year for Christmas!

After all, how could Santa possibly know what to put under your tree if you don’t tell him?

Santa will be at Centotre on the 6th, 13th and 20th of December between 10am and Noon.

San Patrignano – A Good Night for a Good Cause

November 16, 2009


At Centotre, our values and beliefs enable us to provide the very best food, using the most excellent ingredients but also look after our community both locally in Edinburgh and Italy where possible. That is why we are hosting our wonderful San Patrignano Wine Tasting event again this yeart.  5 delicious courses perfectly matched with 5 new vintage wines, tickets only £50.  Sunday 29th November at 7.30pm.

San Patrignano helps young men and woman with serious drug problems regardless of ideology, social background, or religion, and completely free of charge, accepting no payment or funding from their families or the government.
Since 1978, San Patrignano has taken in over 18,000 people, offering them a home, healthcare, legal assistance, and the opportunity to study, learn a job, change their lives, and regain their status as full members of society.

Whilst we are raising awareness of this amazing project, the real beauty is on the magnificent wines we will be showcasing, along of course with our best cooking, with courses perfectly matched!

To accompany this Stefano Bariani, a professional wine connoisseur, from the San Patrignano vineyard will be hosting the night and speaking along with Victor, which is sure to be entertaining.

So, come along! Tickets are selling fast so be quick.  We can all share a November night of  of good food, good wine, good company and all for the greater cause 🙂

Please RSVP to or phone us for a chat on 0131 225 1550.

We look forward to seeing you there 🙂

We recently picked up on the following comment received by the prestigious Restaurant Guide web site:

“My boyfriend and I visited Centotre last Friday night and what a great time we had! I had eaten there for lunch before but never been in the evening, the chandelier there is beautiful and creates a lovel ambience. It was my partner’s birthday so I requested one of the booths at the window which we were told normally cannot be reserved, the person who took the reservation said they would do their best to get one and sure enough one was saved for us when we arrived. We were greeted by the very friendly owner who showed us to our table. Our waitress was lovely, very attentive but also knew when to leave us alone. The food was delicious, fresh and not at all stodgy as is sometimes the case with Italians. After our meal we got chatting to the owner and after mentioning my boyfriend’s birthday were presented with two limoncellos on the house. It was a great night, we’ll definitely be back!”

Victor responds: “We’re both delighted and humbled at such praise, and grateful to customers who take the time to comment on these online guides.

It also encourages us to continually keep up and surpass the high standards we hold ourselves to in offering the very best to our customers.

Molte Grazie.”

Buon Natale e Felice Anno Nuovo.
