Restaurant description

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.

    Very nice Italian restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. The food was amazing, super delicious. The polenta was incredible, but a bit too small size for a secondi. Overall a fantastic place!

    It's Acena, what more need be said! Always terrific - we are fortunate in that it is "local" to us.

    Its been more than 4 months since visiting Acena which is one of my favourite restaurants. As always it excels! While some favourite dishes have disappeared, they always seem to come up with new dishes that quickly become new favourites!! Anyone wondering about social distancing etc...... should not be, tables nicely spaced and staff all taking precautions as necessary.
