    Excellent food, reasonably priced . Nicely styled interior with very friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. The only negative aspect came at the point of settling the bill. The young lady pointed out that a 10% discretionary gratuity had ALREADY been added to the bill and the my choice was therefore to leave it or remove it prior to paying. Not the way it's done in my opinion. The customer should be given the choice of adding a gratuity, not the option of withdrawing it. Bad form.

    Evening spoilt by a mix up with the booking and we were seated near the door which was very cold then had a couple seated next to us on a high stool table which meant I had a view of a rear next to my wife face. We asked to moved which they were happy to do and everything was fine after that.

    I am a regular so probably a bit biased. Love Cena, always a great welcome. Consistent food quality. Caters for gluten free (as my friend is and she was pleased with choices). A professional and friendly team - we sat by the pizza oven and it was interesting to see how hard the chef and her team were working. Thanks guys for another lovely evening.

    Have eaten at Cena several times over 5 years and this may be the last. Service and ambience were excellent as ever but my wife's cannelloni dish was so hot that the food kept cooking and by the time she could eat it, it had stuck to the dish! My sea bass fillets were tiny although nicely prepared and very tasty. Coulkd do better at these prices.

    Visited during busy boxing day bank holiday lunchtime. Good atmosphere and service was excellent. Sadly once again the food was mediocre. Pizzas remain undercooked and bland, lasagne was burnt, prawn spaghetti tasteless. £140 for five people (three children) no alcoholic drinks. Shame as the restaurant, atmosphere and staff are great, but the food is consistently mediocre at best. This was our fifth and now final visit.

    Food was nice sides are overpriced for the size of the dish, normally the service is very good but it was definitely lacking. Ordered a bottle of wine - glasses and wine plonked on the table wine not poured just left, meals were brought out no interaction from staff. A disappointing experience not their normal standard
