    The staff was welcoming.. very nice atmosphere, good/more than good white wine (Fiano). 2 out of 2 starters ordered were pretty good. First main (pasta) could use some work on. Very small portions, cacio e Pepe spaghetti had a nice flavour, but linguine alle vongole were very basic, a whole clove of garlic half melted, tonnes of chopped parsley and chilli (maybe not a very good quality of chilli as wasn’t tasting of much). Nice desserts.

    Perfect for a special family occasion. Thoroughly recommended. We went for my daughter’s birthday meal and it was really delightful and memorable.

    A Cena was really buzzing when we went there last Friday evening. Staff were friendly and allowed us to change to a better table than the one originally offered. Starters and the bread were fabulous - fried courgette fritters, and the beetroot and goats cheese dish, really excellent, but the main courses were disappointing - we both had the marinated monkfish and it was a bit rubbery and tasteless. These things happen and otherwise a lovely experience.

    The food was excellent, perfectly cooked and presented: Goat's cheese & beetroot salad best I've had, fabulous zucchini, delicious seabass - could not fault it. Atmosphere and ambience good, but try to get a table nearer the front, and if only two persons then one of the window tables. One unfortunate problem that put a damper on our evening, and one that really have a huge issue with, the price of our wine was £8.00 more per bottle than on the wine list, and although this was rectified upon notification, it spoilt the evening and the excuse was unacceptable - apparently the increase of wine prices had not been amended on the wine lists, although their tills certainly had the price adjustment, makes one feel cheated. Not good.

    It is always an uplifting experience to go to A Cenna. The food, atmosphere and staff are superb. It is very efficient and a lot of effort goes into caring for the customers. I always go there as my 'go to' favourite local restaurant.

    Although the food was fair and the service was friendly but a little aloof the restaurnt was not as good as in previous occasions and makes think that perhaps there’s a change of ownership

    Great place for Sunday lunch with friends. Excellent food, a good selection of wine and very reasonably priced if you have the set lunch offer.

    This was our first visit to A Cena since the change of ownership- obviously we don’t get out enough! We were glad to see that the standards are as good as ever they were. The food choices for Sunday lunch were excellent and delivered. I don’t know if this is the case but the wine list was a shrunken version of what used to be presented. Personally, I was fine with that. There was plenty of choice and a more concise selection makes decision making that much easier. I particularly enjoyed the duck ragu and my fellow guests were delighted with the sea bass. Congrats to the chef for the mont blanc. Always love to get a sticky based version of meringue rather than the dried out chalk offerings frequently encountered elsewhere.

    Lovely, friendly atmosphere. Meals all good but highlights were fried cauliflower, the lamb and the triple fried chips!
