A Cena never disappoints. We wanted to try the new Express Lunch menu which costs £10 per, and it was delicious: a rocket & parmesan salad and two main courses - pasta with different and interesting sauces - and coffee/tea. So not merely good value but very good taste.

A Cena has been serving authentic Italian food on the banks of the River Thames since 2001. Set in a warm, friendly, elegant and relaxed atmosphere, the menu changes regularly to adapt to the seasons and ensure only the freshest ingredients go into the dishes.

Begin with the likes of smoky aubergine and potato croquettes with Parmesan and aioli, fried tiger prawns and chili mayonnaise, or one of many tempting fish, meat and vegetable antipasti. Sample main dishes on the A Cena menu include grilled Scottish ribeye steak with rocket, lemon and patatine fritte, or pan-fried marinated hake fillet with capers, white wine, butter, lemon and green beans.

The dessert menu at A Cena restaurant features Florentine donuts with strawberry sauce, salted caramel ripple ice cream, and hazelnut praline with chocolate ice cream. The wine list offers a lengthy selection of Italian bottles, whilst the cocktail menu is equally expansive, and includes the signature A Cena cocktail: vodka, triple sec, orange juice, cranberry juice and fresh lime.

Next to Richmond Bridge, A Cena Richmond is a 10-minute walk from St Margarets Train Station.

    Service good but food only fair. Guinea fowl not very flavoursome and only one vegetarian main option plus upset stomach afterwards. Has gone downhill since I dined there last year.

    Lovely food, great service

    Was greeted warmly and staff are very attentive (maybe just a tad too attentive) the moment my guest arrived our waiter came to ask if she wanted a drink, unfortunately she had barely sat down and wasn't sure. The food was excellent; bruschetta and sea bass my choices were perfect size as well. I really liked the half bottle of wine options as my guest does not drink wine. We overstayed our time and the staff were very polite in stating this, we had no idea!! Overall a wonderful evening and delicious dinner.

    Efficient service but wasn't impressed by the quality of the food

  • (((** 10 February 2017 by Neal from Twickenham, United Kingdom

    Service was the big disappointment here. We were one of 3 tables in the restaurant on a quiet Wednesday night, but you would have thought that the place was packed with the lack of attention that we received. The server barely mumbled a word as he stopped by to take our drink and food orders. Then we had to flag him down multiple times to get additional drinks and our bill. I would give the food a 4 out of 5, but it's a shame that the service is what really sticks in our mind. Probably won't make it back, at least for a while.
