Osteria IL Centro, along with their sister restaurants, Minsky's Pizza and eggtc. participated in KC Restaurant Week this year for the first time, and thanks to our loyal patrons, together we were able to raise $13,776.92!

Gregg Johnson, founder and owner of the three restaurants stated, "We are grateful to be able to donate to the KC Restaurant Week charities and look forward to Restaurant Week in 2022. We can't thank our guests enough for their support to these charities, especially now when things aren't quite back to normal yet in Kansas City."
