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.

    Delicious dinner of very authentic Italian food. Also, well balanced portions - substantial but not stodgy. Love to atmosphere and low-key but attentive service. Thanks A Cena team. Never disappointing...

    great food, good service another excellent meal at a Cena

  • (((** 2 February 2018 by Gill Woodhams from London

    Inspite of booking a week previously we were given a table in a very dark and small corner of the restaurant at the side of the bar whilst there were lighter and much roomier tables. The food was fine but we were perpetually rushed into ordering and the food all arrived very quickly. We felt like they needed the table back very quickly.
    Have been there before and had a really good experience.
