Visited with friends, really buzzy atmosphere, so it was perfect for a relaxed night out with some good food. Menu could accommodate all palates and found the staff to be knowledgeable and accommodating (we had a citrus allergy amongst us). I’d say pricing was mid range, food was of a decent standard and the wine/drinks menu had a good range of options. Not a bad spot.

Normally food in Cena is exceptional. This time I got my ride Otto undercooked cold inside. Once mentioned this to the staff they were quick enough to correct it. But you can’t do that kind of mistakes in a reputed restaurant.
And I heard the next door table guy complaining about the same dish saying there wasn’t any flavour to it

We have had many great meals at Cena, but unfortunately the 20th Oct was not great.
We were informed the pizza oven was not working which our boys enjoy so they had chosen the burger to which we were informed as they had only just sold 3 only 1 was available. No garlic bread was available due to no pizza oven.
The 2 calamari starter's were great as usual but the 2 small pieces of halloumi for the other 2 starters were not good value. One main meal with chicken, cream and pasta was very rich but very salty taking over the flavour of the dish.

We will go back and hope to enjoy as much as we previously have but won't be high on the list.

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.
