  • El Centenario: The Full-Plate Mexican Experience

    by Jetgirly Updated May 25, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Normally, when you go to a Mexican restaurant in Italy you get a burrito. And stop. But the owners of El Centenerio have clearly traveled outside Piemonte and searched for a more inspirational serving style. At this restaurant, your chosen burritos, tacos and/or fajitas are served with rice and beans on the side.

    Now, we get into some trouble when we examine the actual ingredients in the food served. The side dishes consist of white rice and black beans (whereas a typical Mexican restaurant would serve red (Spanish) rice and refried beans). However, the most appalling thing was that my burrito contained PEAS and CARROTS in a cream sauce! It was like a vegetable casserole in there! Little seasoning and even less spice rounded out a large but bland and extremely Italian-ized meal. The sangria was good (only served frozen) and very strong!

    The decor is interesting (lots of retro ads for Replay jeans) and the service was excruciatingly slow.
