Brisbane's sprawling riverside entertainment complex, Eagle Street Pier, offers its fair share of quality restaurants, but for a casual fine dining experience, you can't go past Il Centro. The restaurant's modern Italian menu has a freshness that's very Queensland, with a big emphasis on showcasing local seafood.
The restaurant's signature dish is the legendary Sand Crab Lasagne. The creamy crustacean pasta is a favourite with regulars and first time visitors alike and has appeared on the menu since the restaurant opened in 1992.
The is is so popular in fact, in excess of 450,000 orders of the celebrated pasta have been served. That’s a lot of sand crab!
