A neighborhood gem. Fantastic bar and bartender!

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.
Thank you for your review Wally. I’m so glad you had a great experience and I’m happy that you got to try our new pre-fixe menu. Hope to see you soon again.
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.
Thank you for your review. I’m glad you enjoyed everything. I do apologize for the menu on open table being different then our menu it was an oversight by us we changed our menu about a month ago. We did updated. We hope to see you again.

Food and service were good. Parking could be better.
Thank you for the 5 star review. I’m happy enjoyed the food and the service. Yes parking can be a little difficult at times we have a small lot right next to the restaurant and usually there’s plenty of parking on the street. Hope to see you soon.
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.
The coconut shrimp was the best I have ever had!!
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.
Food was good, pasta was not fully cooked harder than al dente
Thank you for your review. And I’m sorry the pasta wasn’t cooked to your liking next please let us know so we can fix it for you and you can enjoy your meal.
Food and service are outstanding but when the place fills up it’s way too loud.
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.
Waitied long time for appetizers
Food was ok not great
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 visit for my wife's birthday sat by the waterfall it was very nice food was fantastic on the expensive side waiter was nice but a little slow and it wasn't busy.
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!
Food is excellent. The brick oven pizza outstanding. Noise level is terrible.
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.
