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.

    Excellent short menu means everything is fresher cooked. The acid test for this is always risotto. Theirs is perfect.
    Service is also excellent.

    Last minute choice for a quiet dinner for two. Friendly helpful staff and great food beautifully cooked for a reasonable price. We came away really happy and wanting to return for dinner again in the future.

    Wonderful dining experience. Waiting staff are lovely, around but not imposing. Food is delicious, simple & not over complicated, great portion sizes - just delightful.

    Lovely food and service. A great find. As it was appalling weather that evening, my only criticism was there was no heat in the building. Otherwise we loved it.

    Exceptional prawns to start, and the new duck main was delightful. Be careful with the red wine choices and a lovely meal is always had for the Sunday set menu
