You’ve dedicated yourself to work and family.

Your days are long and busy.

We think you deserve an escape.

That’s why we created Cenacolo.

It’s also why we’ve spent all day prepping, mixing and stirring up our sauce (and sampling it ourselves throughout the day to make sure it tastes just right). Making the pasta by hand right here on site. And selecting the finest local ingredients and presenting them in ways that delight the eye, nourish the body and bring tranquility to the soul.

In fact, when you sit at one of our tables, it’s not a lot different than if you joined us at home. We make everything fresh there, too.

With Cenacolo, we’ve created a place that we feel is pretty special. A place that feels familiar and welcoming. And if it were any closer to home, we’d ask you to help with the dishes.


We look forward to meeting you.

    Cenacolo never disappoints. Food is fabulous. I hope they never stop giving the limoncello at the end of the meal...just a special touch.

    Excellent out of the way pasta restaurant in "south" Irwin. Fried artichoke appetizer is dusted with parmesan and basil and large enough for two. Lobster tortelloni and rustic linguini were both delicious and full of seafood. A great Friday in Lent choice!

    Our server Christopher was outstanding. He knew the menu inside and out and had fantastic recommendations. The charcuterie board was fresh and crisp. The lobster tortelloni had almost an entire lobster in it. The gnocchi ragu is so rich and the pasta is so tender. The portions are plentiful for 2 meals. You will no be disappointed.

    While it may seem "pricey", it is worth every penny. They use quality ingredients and do not skimp on anything, including the portion size. The food is served piping hot, too! We have enough leftover food to last a few days! You definitely get your money's worth while enjoying a gourmet Italian meal. The atmosphere was a bit "busy" to me (but it may be because of where we were seated, in the middle of a small dining area, right by the kitchen door). Go. Try it out. You won't be disappointed.

    The entrees are limited to pastas- all house made and delicious. However, they are pricey and portions are huge! We split the pappardelle with osso bucco and still brought home a portion. The service was attentive. The wine selection was good and pours are generous. An arugula salad simply dressed with balsamic vinaigrette is included. I would recommend cutting both portion size and entree price in half so customers could try two different entrees without requiring a personal loan from the bank! Overall an excellent restaurant in a hard-to-find location.

    We were greeted with a smile at the front door and seated quickly, even though they were quite busy (Valentine's Weekend). Our waitress was amazing, with just the right amount of attention. The specials were explained and our questions were answered about preparation of a few of the items on the menu. She was very knowledgeable about the preparation and ingredients in each of the items we asked about. Our food...AMAZING & DELICIOUS! What I like about Cenacolo is the dishes are different than anything you get at other restaurants. They put their own spin on each item from appetizers to desserts. I also like that your salad, bread, and a special treat of Limoncello with an almond cookie are included with your meal, not a la carte. I had Fagioli E Verdure for an appetizer (Sweet Sausage, Cannellini Beans, Garlic, Pancetta & Broccolini in a cream sauce) and Bruco for my meal ("Wavy Pasta", Mushrooms, Sundried Tomatoes, Mascarpone Cream, Truffle). I had enough leftovers for 2 full meals at home! EXCELLENT experience.

    Wonderful brunch! Everything we ordered at our table we would order again. Probably the best dish was the short rib with eggs and hollandaise sauce not that any of the dishes fell short of what was expected. Great drinks as well. We look to go back soon for another Sunday Brunch!!

    Everything was excellent, we had reservations and were seated promptly after having a cocktail at the bar with a delightful and very knowledgeable bartender. Our server was very helpful since it was our first time. Wish I would have gotten her name, I would definitely want her again. Food was delicious and very generous portions. Thank you for the complimentary lemoncello after dinner drink. It was an enjoyable evening!!

    I came for restaurant week and ended ordering off the regular menu. I have gone to many restaurant during this event and you had the poorest offer. There was no buy here and that is why I ordered off of the regular menu. The problem I have that a 25 dollar pasta dish with sausage etc. should have had more than one layer on the bottom of the bowl.The same pasta dish was on the restaurant week menu and I feel that I was given the sampler instead of the regular size. When looking around other pasta dishes looked like they could feed a family and I barely had enough to eat.
