CHEF DONATO SCOTTI READIES THE DEBUT OF HIS FIRST
SAN FRANCISCO RESTAURANT, CENTO OSTERIA
Opening this spring, the restaurant will focus on simple osteria food
from different regions in Italy, paired with artisanal wines and cocktails
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – April 4, 2018 – Chef Donato Scotti, proprietor of Donato Restaurant Group, will open his first San Francisco restaurant, Cento Osteria, this May. Located along the city’s eastern waterfront at the corner of Brannan and the Embarcadero, Cento Osteria will feature simple, seasonal fare in the style of a classic Italian osteria, including pizza, pasta, grilled meats and seafood, and small plates to pair with wine and cocktails.
Donato Restaurant Group comprises Donato Enoteca, a popular Italian dining destination celebrating its 10th anniversary next year in Redwood City; CRU, a European-style bar and wine shop, also in Redwood City; and Donato & Co. in Berkeley, which Scotti opened in 2017 with fellow Italian chef and longtime friend Gianluca Guglielmi, who is now executive chef for the Donato Restaurant Group. Cento Osteria will be Chef Scotti’s fourth restaurant.
“At Cento Osteria, we want guests to experience the kind of simply prepared, everyday food that Italians enjoy at osterie all over Italy,” said Scotti. “You can come here for pizza or pasta, order a steak, or share a custom-sized selection of small bites with friends over wine or cocktails at the bar in a fun and familiar space.”
