Located in Kew on Cotham Road, Centonove offers a refined and elegant atmosphere for Italian dining. The menu provides a selection of contemporary Italian meals from fresh Rigatoni with zucchini flowers to something sweet like a traditional tiramisu. Executive Chef Patrick Fletcher sources the finest produce to make up his detailed primi, secondi and dessert style menu.

Having travelled extensively through Italy in the past, Mr Fletcher pays homage to Italian cuisine, using authentic ingredients to provide the freshest and finest dishes to his customers.

Each meal is carefully complemented with the restaurants selection of award-winning wines. The 500 strong varietal wine list showcases Australia’s best shiraz vineyards and has the most comprehensive selection of Italian wine anywhere in Australia. Recently for the 7th consecutive year, Gourmet Traveller recognised Centonove with a 3 wine glass rating, the highest rating possible in the Wine List of the Year awards.

In the coffee scene, the La Marzocco Linea coffee machine pours a rich golden crema using the Prima Tazza blend superbly balanced with a lingering honey finish. The space itself includes three separate dining rooms with two for private dining.

A favourite is the small 8 seat room surrounded by the ambience of 2500 bottles of wine, perfect for a special birthday celebration or business meeting. Centonove’s long term success comes down to excellent food, friendly and approachable staff in an elegant environment. The professionalism of the owners the Davidson family is exemplary. 109 Cotham Rd, Kew 3101
