"Dietary restrictions: Hands down the BEST gluten-free pizza (base) I’ve had in years. (The margherita topping was 10/10 too).Great atmosphere, loved how there was different seating zones. Slick and well stocked bar. Lovely and friendly staff. A fresh and tasty side salad was the perfect portion to share."

"DELICIOUS! We had the gamberi pizza for mains and mussels for entree, well seasoned, full of flavour, fresh, rich and finger licking seafood goodness, paired with a glass of red wine for a reasonable price. Service was fantastic, from the host to the waiters to the counter/bar staff - all attentive, friendly, smiles and professional. Modern, chic and cozy decor, I’m already looking forward to coming back and trying other items on the menu."

"The vibes here are immaculate! All four of us loved our meals (lasagne, ragu, parmigiana) and the service was excellent, especially by Olivia! They helped us move tables when it was extremely busy because we felt cold, was prompt with taking our orders, bringing us our meals and taking our plates away! At the end of the night we sat talking for a while and they made sure to keep replacing our water the entire time. Honestly such a great experience for just the food and then the service on top made it even better!!"

"My family and i had the pleasure of dining at Cena, and I must say, it was an unforgettable experience! From the moment we walked in, we were treated like family by the warm and welcoming staff. But the real stars of the show were the dishes themselves. Oh, the dishes! Each one was a masterpiece of flavors, textures, and presentation. Each dish remained me that i was in Italy itself as each dish was crafted with such perfection…definitely recommend to anyone who wants to spend there weekend with some outstanding Italian food and staff that treats you with the utmost care❤️"

"First time visiting this fairly new local restaurant that we’ve heard about from friends - both my husband and I were very impressed with the food and the service. Highly recommend the calamari fritti and the linguine marinara. The flavours are nicely balanced, the portions are of a good size. It’s a very spacious restaurant with lots of parking nearby."

Anima Sola

"Fantastic food, service and atmosphere celebrating my granddaughter's 16th birthday. Great night! Thank you to all the girls and Sohail."

Pamela

"That chilli oil was yum, very spicy, and could not get enough of the chilli oil. I think their chilli oil was the star of the meal. The linguine marinara and spaghetti meat ball seemed a little over cooked. Pizzas were good. Tiramisu was okay but a little too sweet for me."

alex kha

"I was there last Saturday with my friend and Cena didn't disappoint. The food was amazing and the service was great ,We had the lasagna and the linguine and let me tell you it was divine, highly recommended ."

Mannat Karki

"Great atmosphere and the food was divine, especially the foccacia. The staff were really attentive and friendly."

Kim Huynh

"Lasagne is more on the drier side. I prefer mine saucey. Pizza was fab but couldn't taste the truffle. Ribs was delicious and large in portion - no complaints. Generous portions for dessert and perfect end for the night."

Christine Huynh

"I ordered the margarita pizza and without a doubt It was the best pizza I’ve ever had and it had so much flavour. the staff there are polite and friendly.

"Amazing to have an Italian restaurant like this in my area. There is nothing like it! Food was on point and service was excellent. I found the place to be spacious and well fitted out. We had the chicken saaltimbocca, pappardelle ragu, kids had the gnocci (sauce was beautiful) and we couldn't go past having the Italian donuts! We also took away a tiramisu and that was delicious!!"

Kevin Tan

"Recently, I had the pleasure of dining at Cena, an Italian restaurant known for its extensive menu and welcoming atmosphere. During my visit, I ordered the 100 Layer Lasagna and the Ortolano (vegetable) pizza. The 100 Layer Lasagna was undoubtedly the highlight of the meal. Comprising 20 layers each of pasta sheets, bolognese, béchamel, mozzarella, and Parmesan, this dish was a masterpiece. The lasagna was incredibly soft, light, and easy to eat, with a rich, flavorful bolognese that tasted fresh and unprocessed. The combination of textures and flavors made it an unforgettable dish and one that I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Cena. In contrast, the Ortolano pizza was somewhat disappointing. The pizza lacked flavor, and while the capsicum was tasty, the other vegetables fell short. They weren’t marinated, which left the pizza bland compared to other places I’ve tried. It’s clear that the lasagna is the star dish, and the pizza could use some improvement. The service at Cena was commendable. The staff were prompt and attentive, ensuring that water was brought to our table without needing to ask. The restaurant itself is spacious, with two distinct sides. Unfortunately, the side we were seated on was quite noisy, which is understandable given the stone floors and tables. It might not be the best place for a quiet dinner, but it has a lively atmosphere. The average price per person at Cena starts from around $30, which is reasonable given the quality of the food and service."
