Sunday lunch made really special by great welcome and great care with a delicious meal catering inventively for dietary needs. An imminent return plan says it all!

4 lovely course, each was lovely, quality ingredients with excellent presentation, a little pricey but well worth it, the service was tentative and unobtrusive. The setting was beautiful, and the evening went well.

This used to be a favourite of ours, but very hit and miss these days. Shoehorned into a table for two, squeezed next to a table of six whilst 90% of restaurant remained empty. In fairness it did fill up in time,I don't know why...More

I was taken to A Cena for a birthday meal last week. We couldn't fault a thing. Both the food and the service were excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

A Cena restaurant is located just over the Richmond Bridge in East Twickenham. A fantastic local italian restaurant set in a warm, friendly, elegant but relaxed atmosphere with a menu that constantly changes to suit the changing seasons and ensuring only the freshest and best ingredients go into our dishes. The wine list is superb ranging from small, modest Italian Vineyards to some of the great names and vintages. A Cena means "at dinner" and is pronounced "Ah Chenna"
