Munich is famous for beer, Bavarian Food, Oktoberfest, beautiful architecture, traditional clothes and is known as Italy’s northernmost city. And the Bar Centrale proves that this is right. I think a more concentrated Italian lifestyle in one place outside of Italy is not possible.
This is what the interior of a typical Italian restaurant should look like. Dark wooden walls, small tables, a big counter, where you drink your Espresso upright – as is common in Italy. I’ve often seen this, because the first thing I do, when I pass the Italian border, is drive to the next gas station and order one or two Espresso. These are the best you can get for no more than 60 cents.
The food is very good. It will be prepared in a very small kitchen and every day the menu changes. The staff is typical Italian as well, always friendly, spirited, funny and fond of children.
In the back of the bar is a small and cosy room with leather seats, which looks like a lounge. It’s very stylish as well and perfect for having food.
My conclusion: be welcomed and take a mouthful of la dolce vita in the Bar Centrale.
