Set in the heart of Eagle Street Pier, Il Centro offers a place to refuel from a leisurely stroll along the pier and take in the cool breezes sweeping off the Brisbane River. A delectable plate of Fresh Crab and Avocado Salad with Tomato Gazpacho is the perfect accompaniment to a glass of white wine during lunch. When evening descends and the lights across the water bathe the river in shimmering colour, you can catch uninterrupted views at Il Centro. For dinner, the Moreton Bay Bug Tails with Potato Gnocchi, Oyster Mushrooms, Roasted Chestnuts, Green Asparagus and Sweet Corn Sauce bursts with flavour. While savouring each mouthful, sip on a glass of Antonutti Pinot Grigio from Italy.
Il Centro’s Set Lunch Menu
ruschetta with mortadella, mozzarella, rocket and green olive tapenade or saffron arancini, scamorza, tomato sugo, and grated pecorino. The main affair is a choice between freshly-caught fish with salsa verde, cabernet reduction, house salad and beer battered chips or carnaroli risotto, spring peas, prosciutto, asparagus, mascarpone, mint and lemon. To finish with something sweet, get stuck into a limoncello pannacotta with lemon soil, blueberry compote, pistachio gelato or the melt-in-your-mouth white chocolate semi freddo, almond brittle and blood orange sorbet. Delizioso!
