A neighborhood gem. Fantastic bar and bartender!
Price fixed was an unreal surprise!!!
Selection huge, portions generous and all 5 meals were Italian gems like mom use to make.
Our second visit and won’t be our last.

Everything was good. My only complaint is that the Opentable menu isn’t anything close to the real restaurant menu, I’d say maybe 10percentis actually on the menu. Was able to order anyway but had my heart set on items that weren’t actually on the menu, a little disappointed.

Restaurant was nearly empty so very quiet. That should have been our first clue since it was restaurant week. Service was excellent but food was lacking. Salmon tasted like it had been frozen. Chicken was too salty and drowned in sauce. Skirt steak was lost in a soup of some kind of sweet sauce. Overall a big disappointment.

We went with another couple for restaurant week. We had heard that the food was very good. We were met by the manager who was very friendly. The waiter introduced himself and was very friendly. Service was excellent. Always checking to make sure everything was ok and no problems. Manager also came by. Gave us a copy of their new prix fix menu starting the following week. No of us were disappointed with serving size of portions and quality and taste of food. Will definitely go back again. You will not be disappointed if you go here.

We were seated right away no waiting at all that was great. Server was ok he got our drinks and then proceeded to get us bread. Everything so far was good we ordered the grilled octopus that was ok. I ordered and entree of the pasta with short ribs, I couldn’t even eat it to be honest it was very salty, my husband ordered the lasagna that wasn’t good either i had to return mine because it wasn’t eatable I decided to try another pasta which was the penne allá vodka that wasn’t that great either. I definitely will not come to this place. The only thing that was good was my pear margarita.

We sat outside at this little gem. What a quaint and decorative patio area, the food was excellent and it was quite romantic. Check out this “pearl in the oyster” before it gets cold. Sitting outside was a home run! They have an ample inside area as well for when the chill hits~

First time dining at Cena 081, the Patio is a lovely spot, our only little suggestion is to keep the music low...at times it was too loud and didnt really have a dining vibe to it....otherwise we loved our meal and the service was GREAT! we will be back for sure!

First time here recommended by a friend and it was great. We had a table in back patio that they have which is beautiful with a waterfall in the corner. We shared a pizza and seafood salad for appetizer and they were both great. My wife for dinner had Sunday sauce and it was to die for and I had skirt steak special it was excellent came with sautéed onions and mash potatoes and for dessert there home made tiramisu. Jen was my server she was excellent and Orlando the manager came over and introduced himself to us and told us anything we needed to please ask. Great experience. Will definitely be back.
