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 enjoyable lunch on a hot day. Nice and cool in the restaurant though. Good service, excellent choice of Italian wines. Spaghetti alla Polpo (octopus) was excellent as were the desserts.

    The booking was a dream - very easy. A Cena was even flexible when we turned up almost an hour earlier, hoping to have a drink, but we were offered a table steigt away. I sent an email prior to the visit that we have a birthday amongst us, and they brought out the desert with a candle which was very sweet! Food was absolutely delicious. I had the liver and loved it. The ‘tuna’ pork on cannellini beans was also popular. The staff there was very attentive and overall it really made our day!
