Food and service was lovely. Gluten Free options are great.

Had to send pizza back as not warm enough which they obliged to do and everything else was lovely.

Food was brilliant the taste, presentation was quality. Only down fall is as soon as your shown to your seat and table they ask for drinks straight away which your not sure what they even sell until you have looked. Apart from that defiantly a 9/10

The food, drink and service were all excellent. I don't have anything but positive things to say about my experience there. I have found Cena to be consistently excellent and I'm really pleased that this is still the case.

I would not recommend based on service, been a few times now and the staff are all quite young, don’t really know what they are doing and with no guidance. My food this time was also pretty average, spaghetti Bolognese was bland and watery. Informed waiter but as mentioned he was young didn’t say anything and no one came to speak to me about it or apologise.

Food is a bit fussy could do with adding maybe a simple pasta in a tomato sauce

We have eaten here many times and the food is usually good. However I ordered Pork Milanaise which I had enjoyed before and eaten many tomes in restaurants all over the world, including Milan. Milanese is a flattened escalope about 1/4 in thick of Veal or Pork fried in breadcrumbs until crisp on the outside.
Unfortunately the current chefs, (new?), version was a normal pork chop 3/4 inches thick in a soggy mess of breadcrumbs.
I don’t think he knew what he was doing in this instance.

Lovely meal-I have a number of dietary problems which makes it difficult for me to eat out. The waitress was really helpful and I was able to have a plainer meal without the sauces

Fantastic food, great value for the quality. Service was attentive without being OTT. Staff were very understanding when my daughter felt ill and couldn’t manage her main course, she enjoyed it at home later! Can’t wait to return.

2 person tables upstairs were crammed together upstairs, far too close together. I was disappointed with the food if fact my wife was ill shortly afterwards as she felt unwell. The worst thing for me was the noise too may people in too small a space it was like being in the south stand at the riverside stadium.
The waitress service was good.

Nice anniversary meal. Happily the downstairs tables were further apart than the last time we visited.
The food and service were v good.
We felt the welcome could have been better- it took a while for anyone to acknowledge that we were there. It was exceptionally noisy. But overall very good.

Good quality, nicely presented Italian dishes. Helpful and friendly service who were really helpful when it came to one of our party being coeliac (gluten free). Good atmosphere with a buzz but not too loud.
