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.

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

    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

    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.

    Lovely food, really tasty and they did really simple sounding dishes really well. Great service, they let us have a very chilled evening without any pressure to 'order faster' or more dishes. Prices were slightly above what I'd normally pay but it's Richmond...
