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
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.
This was a quick dinner decision and did we make the right choice. From the time we stepped in to the time that we left, the service was at a very high-level. Our food and drinks were of Casino quality. When we say this the food here was comparable to any of the top casinos fine restaurants that we have been in. Our drinks were fabulous and I must say we had a few extra because they were so good. Appetizers main course and bread was so evenly matched and enhanced every part of the meal experience.
We were welcomed at the door like long lost friends. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. The waiter was fast and efficient. The music in the restaurant had the whole table, ages from 2 to 60 singing along. The food was really great and everyone enjoyed themselves. We will certainly be returning.
Restaurant was crowded but socially distanced.
We were seated immediately and the service was very good.
The kitchen was slammed so it took a little longer for the food
My wife had veal picatta which was very good while I had the steak
special which was done perfectly but was very tough.
Otherwise we purchased a gift certificate and will return.
I love returning to a restaurant where you are treated like royalty! LaCena has long been one of our favorite restaurants. Drinks are always great and the food never disappoints!
The food and service was great. It is our go to spot for a good dinner.
Great food and great people. We love this place.
Great as always
Always great food & great service every time we go. Food was delicious as always!
Excellent food, excellent service and the prices are great! They also have a really nice band playing.
Always a great culinary experience at La Cena!
Limited dining menu differs from what's visible on website. Should be updated to reflect fewer options. We were the only guests dining inside the restaurant which was nice, piano music playing through speakers was a nice touch but a bit loud in my opinion. Eggplant rollatini was delicious, bread was very hard and stale tasting, tagliatelle de la casa was pleasant though the scallops did not taste very fresh. Overall, a good experience the waiter was super attentive and kind.
Amazing dining experience on Saturday, 10/10/20. We have been here once previously and the food stood out then, so we were happy to see that the quality and entree selections were still outstanding. My husband had the veal chop and was beyond pleased. The appetizers were delicious and prepared with care. Our server, Stephanie, was incredibly pleasant and made sure we wanted for nothing during our entire meal. The staff checked on us continually and made sure to maintain CDC recommendations for their patron's safety. Their house band, Sway, was the perfect backdrop for a lovely evening out. They performed a wide variety of music pleasing to many generations. Their vocal arrangements and overall sound added so much to our dining experience, never overwhelming or too loud to carry on a conversation. We will definitely be back and hope to bring friends with us to enjoy.
The staff at LaCena always make us feel special. The cocktails are the best and the food is outstanding. We always enjoy listening to the live music. LaCena is an excellent choice for date night.
