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.

    We had an excellent meal . We are both vegetarians so we had the endive salad with Roquefort dressing, amaranth leaves and Roasted walnuts, and for mains we had deep-fried polenta with Ben roast tomato and broccolini. The service was very good I and the food is well sourced and good value. I would recommend it to anybody ( I can’t speak for the meat dishes but we were lucky to have such a good choice for vegetarians ). There was a good selection of deserts but we couldn’t manage any more.

    My wife and I love A Cena - to celebrate with family and friends - or just for dinner just the two of us. The ambience and service are excellent - as is the cuisine

    Food was great. Service was terrible. The waiters kept badgering us to make a choice even though the restaurant was very empty (only us an another group). Asked us to choose our mains upfront claiming it takes long to cook them, but then got that food within like 10-15 mins. Was clear they could not wait to get us out of the restaurant since we were the last group (and we left around 8:45ish. So wasn’t even that late.
