After closing their dining room on March 20, Centro Cafe 808 E. Center St., has announced that they are officially reopening for carry-out beginning today.

The popular Riverwest restaurant is offering a pared down menu including garlic bread and salads along with pastas like lasagna, housemade gnudi and shrimp scampi and gluten-free pizza.

Additional offerings will be added in the coming weeks.

For the sake of safety, all orders should be placed online with touchless pick-up available at their front window.

Hours of operation are Wednesday through Saturday from 3 to 8 p.m.
