First visit to this gem in Silver Lake Village. Found with promotion on Dine About Park City, and will return. Really great service and food. Nice atmosphere as well. Deal on DAPC was great value. Overall, a winning combination for me and my guests. Bravo!
Jimmy, Thank you for leaving such a wonderful review! We will be sure to pass on your compliments to the Chef, and we hope to see you dine with us again soon. Kind regards, Chef Zane VP of Food & Beverage, Corporate Chef
We walked here from our hotel and ordered the spaghetti and meatballs and Prosciutto & Garganelli. Both were okay, but not memorable. The bread was great and the clam strips were huge and very good. My husband felt the sauce on his meatballs was too thin and flavorless. The Garganelli was good, but the pea shoot stems were so hard and tough I couldn't eat them, and it was two large stems of pea shoots (should have been cut smaller). Probably won't return.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us your review! I am disappointed to hear that your experience with us was less than 5 star. I will be sure to pass on this information to the chefs so that they may better train their kitchen staff. I hope you will give us another chance to wow you in the future! Kind regards, Chef Zane VP of Food & Beverage, Corporate Chef
We had dinner here on 9-15-19 and sat on the outdoor patio, which was nice. Several of the heating units were not working but the two nearest our table seemed to be working fine and that kept things warm enough on the cool evening. Our waiter was great.
The four of us split the crab cakes appetizer (two on a plate), which was delicious. We then split one Caesar salad and one chopped salad and both were good. For the entree two of us split one order of spaghetti and meatballs and the other two split the tagliatelle with lamb Bolognese. Those that had the spaghetti thought it was delicious and the meatballs were the star. Unfortunately the gummy, maybe even over/under cooked tagliatelle ruined the joy of the delicious lamb Bolognese. We ended up using bread to eat the sauce and left the tagliatelle behind.
I will say it is always nice when the kitchen will split items on separate plates in the kitchen instead of diners having to do it themselves at the table and Cena did it happily although they did charge us a split charge, which was expected.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback! We appreciate the information and the constructive criticism. We will be sure to pass this information along to the chefs so that they can better train their staff. Although your tagliatelle was chewy it sounds like you otherwise enjoyed the experience, and we hope to see you join us again soon. Kind regards, Chef Zane VP of Food & Beverage, Corporate Chef
Great pasta pomodoro with meatballs. My wife ordered without and was charged the same.
We were 4 adults. Fish smelled very fishy; it was sent back. 2 people order the duck breast which was very over done & dry. Carrots & gnocchi were very good. 1 person had lamb chops which were also overdone & he asked when ordering for it to be medium. The person who orig ordered fish, ordered the pasta & it was fine. Maybe if you go to Cena, stick with pasta or something Italian. The server was very nice, but not very attentive. We asked for oil to go with the bread several times.
Maybe look at other reviews & see if pasta would be a better choice for this restaurant.
We appreciate you taking the time to leave your feedback. I am concerned to hear of your dining experience with us at Cena. I would love the opportunity to review your meal with you further and personally invite you back. Please reach out to me at (435)649-3700 or respond privately and we can discuss the details of your visit and see where we can better improve our team.

They appear all booked up, but when you get there, its dead. I get it, staffing levels, but still.. I called to see if they could accommodate a party of 8, when opentable would only allow 6, and the hostess said 'unfortunately no', but later in the day (in person) a different hostess said no problem.. Food was good, except the appetizers were pretty bland. Seemed everyone was pretty satisfied. When the bill came out, the attractive waitress said she was automatically going to add 30% gratuity to the bill for larger parties- was that ok with me? Yeah, um, first of all you can ask me more discreetly, secondly, are you asking me or telling me? and lastly, 30%- um- its Deer Valley, but its still percentage based, and your food is already inflated. I politely agreed, and made a mental note to leave a marginal review afterwards.
Good Afternoon Brian and thank you for taking the time to leave this review. I am very concerned to hear about your experience with us at Cena. I would love the opportunity to discuss your evening with you further and personally invite you back; if you could reach out to me at (435)649-3700 or respond privately then we can find where we need to better train our staff. I sincerely look forward to hearing from you, Chef Zane VP of Food & Beverage, Corporate Chef
Waiter took our food order and we never saw him again over the next hour. The folks that delivered our meal, not our waiter, asked if we needed anything else and my wife ordered a glass of wine. The wine never showed up until the meal was over and our table cleared. Personally, I would never eat here again as this was one of the poorest service experiences we have ever had. There other things that could be mentioned in the service, but it is not worth the time.
Thank you for taking the time to leave this review! I am concerned to hear of such poor service from our service staff here at Cena and would like to discuss your visit with you further. Please contact me through the hotel front desk at (435)649-3700 and ask for Chef Zane. This is absolutely not the experience we want our guests to have and I would like to know more about where we need to improve our training. I look forward to hearing from you, Chef Zane VP of Food & Beverage, Corporate Chef
Servers were very attentive- foreign students on work visas. Kale and orange salad was very good. The noodles in the bolognase were not good. They were rubbery - may have been microwaved.
Thank you for taking the time to leave this review! We love our J1 students; they add so much culture to our team and we truly enjoy the time that we get to spend with them while they are here. I do apologize that your noodles were rubbery. We will use this feedback to better train our chefs. We do hope to see you dine with us again in the future. Kind regards, Chef Zane VP of Food & Beverage, Corporate Chef
The food and service was subpar but the atmosphere and scenery were amazing.
This was our second dining experience at Cena -- first was two years ago. This time we chose to dine on the lovely patio versus the lovely dining room, and sunset made a beautiful ambiance. Our food was delicious as it was before, and the service attentive but not intrusive (something that can be rare these days). Highly recommend!
Mary Anne, Thank you for leaving such a wonderful review. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your dinning experience with us on our patio. We strive to give every guest a five star experience and are so pleased to hear that we achieved this for you. We look forward to the next time you visit us for dinner! Kind regards, Chef Zane VP of Food & Beverage, Corporate Chef
I believe that over the last few years the quality of the food has diminished. The staff is very nice and efficient, but the food was mediocre at best. The place needs renovation and the cooking needs improvement.
We appreciate you spending the time to give us your feedback on the Cena Ristorante. It is upsetting to hear that you believe that the food has diminished in quality and needs improvement. I will be discussing this with my culinary team and using this information to better train our staff. Thank you for giving our service staff such a glowing review; we will be sure to pass this along to them as well. Kind regards, Chef Zane VP of Food & Beverage, Corporate Chef
We added a pizza to our order on a whim - we are so glad we did. It was excellent. I almost wish we had ordered more pizzas and just had that for dinner. Our other items were all good but the pizza was the highlight. We got the fried clams based on OpenTable reviews - I didn't think they were anything too special. They were good just not a "must have". We went on a weekday in June and it was very quiet. The service was good. We ate on the patio. Right now, the ambiance lacks a little due to construction across the street but it wasn't terrible. It will be fantastic once the construction is finished.
Thank you for taking the time to leave such a detailed-- and glowing-- review! As an Italian restaurant we pride ourselves on our pizza so we are so pleased to hear that you thought it was excellent. As for the construction across the street, we completely understand your comments, there is nothing that ruins ambiance like the sound of construction, and we cannot wait until it is finished as well. We hope this does not keep you away next time though! Kind regards, Chef Zane
Service was excellent. Beautiful restaurant with lovely ambiance.
This was our first night in Deer Valley and the ski season is coming to an end. We were the only three in the restaurant. Awesome waiter who is also a Sommelier, Eugen, was great!
A lovely spot with very nice food. The restaurant was quiet at the end of the ski season, but the food was very good, as was the service. We will definitely return.
If you are staying in mid-mountain at Deer Valley, Cena is a must. Always dependable
very good food with healthy sized portions. Also, if you like fried clams, this is the only
place that I know of in the Park City area that has them.
Atmosphere, food and service were wonderful. Nice and quiet and welcoming. My family loved it and it may have been our best meal in Park City this trip. My only criticism was that the prices for the individual entrees on the final bill looked to be a few dollars more than stated prices on the menu. Our overall experience was positive so I did not make an issue of it at the time.
Awful food. Poor excuse for Italian food
The food was very mediocre. Kevin was an amazing waiter and provided great service. There was not much ambience the restaurant was pretty empty and the food was disappointing for the price.
Really good Italian food in a great location
Least inspiring Italian food I’ve ever eaten. Lacked any character. Would not return.
Nice spot smallish menu nice service
We really enjoyed Cena. From start to finish we enjoyed our meals. Claudia our server was knowledgeable and made great suggestions.
The chef made a fresh horseradish dip to go with the fried clams! Definitely recommend. We will go back soon!
food was ok but not extraordinary. we tried makind the reservation for 7pm through Opentable and were told there was no table until 7:45pm. we got there at 7:30pm and the place was basically empty so we were seated immediately. go figure!
Disappointed. Wonderful location mid-mountain and great service from a very attentive staff. The food, on the other hand, was terrible. The starter was a roasted squash pappardelle -- flavorless. Main course was a grilled Branzino over potato hash. The fish looked like it had been left on the grill 10 minutes too long -- completely overdone and dry. Hope this was an off night for the chef.
Beautiful setting. Lovely ambience. Fantastic menu. Fantastic team of servers made our evening just perfect!!
It was a winter wonderland with 96 inches of snow ❄️😎
Okay food, but very convenient if you’re on the mountain
Great location for a reasonably priced dinner on the mountain. Everything we ordered tasted great and our server was very accommodating. We will visit again.
Claudia our server was amazing! Our food was good too!
While the service and food were pretty good, the restaurant overall did not have a good vibe and was not a great value.
We are on a family ski trip and Eugen was excellent!
The food just wasn't great and the menu was very limited.
Service was slow. Food was average at best. Not what I was expecting based on what I had heard. Maybe it was just an off night, but was not pleased at all.
Lovely atmosphere, quiet and great service. Food was very good.
Eugene was incredible. Thank you for a great Christmas Eve!
Door was good but service a bit disappointing. We were seated at a table for 4 but only 2 places had silverware and Bread plates. Waitress never brought us the 2 needed despite ordering. Appetizers and it being obvious we need them. Also we order a side dish that did not come out until we were finished with our entrees
Living in Park City, we have many fine restaurants, however, it comes with a price! Cena's location being at mid mountain at Deer Valley keeps it out of the main street crowd and the price structure. Having just returned from 3 week in Italy, the pasta dish I had was far superior than anything in Italy. This time of the year being a local, you can get 2 for 1 and it makes even MORE appealing. The service, the atmosphere, and the food is alway great and it's our favorite spot time and time again.
The bread and the appetizers were awesome. The dessert was good, but the main course was not to our taste. Still, it was a nice place and we enjoyed our evening.
The manager was extremely helpful helping us select a wine. The server was very nice and prompt .
Food portions were small for the price. Pork was very dry, the mushroom polenta was very disappointing. Spaghetti & Meatballs had a good flavor, but portion was very small and husband was hungry again 2 hours later. Service was very slow, despite very few parties dining. Very cute area, but wouldn’t dine here again.
