As always, the food and cocktails are the best. Excellent service. Love the live music!
Nice local restaurant with entertainment and good service but food was very mediocre. I had mushrooms stuffed with sausage that were very bland. I ordered lemon dole as an entre and had to send it back (which I never do) because the fish was old with a strong fishy taste. They were very good about it and even comped a round of drinks. It’s a shame the food wasn’t better because the staff and ambiance were nice.
Stephen the manager is always so personable and makes a point to come over and see how we are everytime. We love chatting with him and the hostess. The specials are always great and we love the regular menu too! Outstanding service from the servers with a great ambiance. This is our go-to date night spot!
Im from Puerto Rico . La Cena make me feel like it home. Bring me back to mine country. The food tasted this is a good family place to visit. The menu is great and don't forget your bottle of wine. The price is moderate.

This place is our go to for a nice night out. The staff are so friendly and professional. The food is amazing. The atmosphere is perfect. I cannot write how great the experience is here honestly. I don't know where they find the servers but they are aces-every single one them. The hosts will talk to you and catch up, it's like you are at a family members house. Try it, you will go back!
Very homey. Good food. Good prices. The staff needs more help. But the staff that was there were wonderful Also. The music was a little to loud but good 👍
Enjoyed out first time there. Very nice comfortable ambiance. Great singer at bar. My husband and I really enjoyed dinner. Will definitely be back
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.
An excellent dining experience! The ambiance was perfect. The food was delicious. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The drinks were perfect. The desert was fabulous. The restaurant was very clean. We really enjoyed it and will definitely return. 😊

Great food , service , and price
Always a good meal and great entertainment on Thursdays! Actually going back tonight with friends!!
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.
