Our Event Space

Host your event at Madison’s premiere Italian restaurant. Our semi-private room seats up to 40 guests and features a private bar, floor-to-ceiling windows, and luxury furnishings. The building was built in 1908 and still features the original stained glass, brick, and mosaic tiles, providing for a beautiful and unique atmosphere. Located just steps from State Street and the Capitol Square, Cento is the perfect location in downtown Madison.
