Chris, Stephanie and the busboys are good servers and attentive, although it was not busy for Friday night.
The service and food were very good!! The only thing I was bummed about was the menu was significantly reduced of options. The menu on Open Table is like twice as big as the one page selections on the paper menu we were given. Everything ordered by our table was still very good!! Wife and another person ordered the veal parmigiana, I got veal Marsala and our other guest got the Orange Roughy fish special In a light scampi sauce with shrimp which was excellent!! The average price for all items in this visit averaged $20-25.00. The bar area is very nearby and can get pretty loud especially with live music going on. All in all a good experience and we would go back.
Overall it’s a nice restaurant. Very noisy, it’s hard to hear what the waiter tells you. I ordered fresh oysters and I don’t feel that they were fresh enough. Had a stomachache all night. But other food was good. Very pricey, good for special occasions only. Not sure if I want to be back.
Always a go to occasion dinner. Live entertainment in the bar area varies and very good acts on weekends. Makes for a pleasant experience.
Listen for the specials before you decide on the menu item. We had the branzino with broccoli rabe and filet items. Perfectly cooked (MR) and presented. Nice dessert selection too.
I must commend our servers!! When we got there we were one of two tables. When we left there were 15 tables and people at the bar. The two gentlemen working were the hosts, bar tenders, waiters and food runners. They were calm through the whole evening. They were amazing!!
Great food, service and environment. Everyone was pleased with their dinner.

Food was fab!! Special buratta limoncello ravioli was to die for!
Horrible staff! Less than par food!! Overall bad experience!!
three of us went out to dinner on a Friday night. the restaurant was much nicer than i expected. the food was great. one of the people in our party had a family emergency just before the entrees arrived and we had to leave. The restaurant staff was extremely gracious and we appreciate their hospitality.
The pasta was a little too al dente. Portions were small but some entrees were tasty.
Amazing neighborhood find. We were visiting from out of town, looked on OpenTable and off we went. Surprised, absolutely. Had Branzino that was wonderful. Good drinks, good food, live music, a genuine Pennsylvania dated Italian restaurant with character... think a few years ago and when you went to dinner you enjoyed a stress fee enjoyable time. Thanks
Live music + great food + ambience + old school charm + lovely hostess!!
My BF and I were looking to try some place new when we found La Cena on the Open Table app. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in. The atmosphere and service were wonderful. Food was excellent. Will definitely go back again and bring friends.
Great food and great service.
Food was delicious and very nice service!
Piano player was a nice touch. Food was just ok!!!
Great food, atmosphere, entertainment!
As always, had a great experience at LaCena. From the time you walk in the door you feel welcome. The food is always excellent. The music was exceptional. Our favorite date night venue.
Excellent quality and quantity of food. Attentive service. Dim lighting made reading menu difficult. Interior steps to elevated dining area a trip hazard coming and going. Good restaurant for non-seniors.
Friendly attentive service. Loved the penne with crabmeat and Caesar salad! Definitely will return.
The food was great. Service was outstanding. Tables were socially distant. I would recommend this restaurant to everybody.
I did not get to enjoy. The restaurant was closed
Romantic Valentines dinner with my Husband. Aside from the Sea Bass cooked in a tad to much oil, everything was delicious and we enjoyed how peaceful and ambient the experience was.
Awesome Food Excellent service. And who knew outstanding piano!!!
Perfect for Valentines Day, the Veal and Chicken Parms were outstanding.
Service was top notch. My wife even received a rose from the restaurant after dinner...
Great service, excellent food, warm ambience, overall great restaurant!!!
We were a party of four and we sat in the back even though we were far away from the bar we could still here the combo been playing and singing and it was at the perfect sound level. Our meal started out with appetizers and the shrimp made with coconut and pineapple was out of this world. We had the asparagus crab soup again a knockout punch. And then everyone’s meal was at casino quality. Everyone enjoyed and we are definitely headed back in the near future.
Was seated right away. Waiter was pleasant, brought the apps out, then the entree.
Everything was delicious, Coffee is especially good, Would recommend
Chris, Dominic, Jeff and everyone else were fantastic.
Cocktails are always top notch. The caprese salad was awesome and the duck was the best. Love LaCena!
We’ve dined at La Cena many times. We love the food, wait staff and entertainment!
Great food and at a very reasonable price! It was my fiancé and I’s first indoor dining date in quite a while and they made it an awesome experience. The live music was an added bonus as well. Will definitely be back again!
Excellent food with nightly band/singer. I was surprised by the upbeat atmosphere, but was impressed with the food and the service. Nice little hidden gem of a restaurant.
This is a hidden gem. Amazing food great service and management CARES about your experience. I have never had one bad meal nor one single bad experience. Everytime, its always been 100%. This is why I take family and friends for special occasions, and we go for an "us" night. Beautiful entertainment (loved tonight 1/8). Just try it, you'll see.
