    Great welcome. Food was fabulous. At the end of the meal a waiter was rather abrupt. Grabbed empty bottle off the table, knocked over the pepper pot and tried to get us to pay the bill after we'd already paid it. He did apologise after being challenged about his abruptness.

    It's the first time dining at Cena. It has a nice welcoming atmosphere about it. We were seated at a nice table and the service was very good. The choice of food had a nice selection of meals and the gluten free menu was also good. The service was prompt and the waitress was helpful. The food itself was very nice and I especially enjoyed the antipasti. Overall we enjoyed our meal at Cena and would recommend it.

    Having a coeliac in the party always makes it quite difficult to find a safe place to eat - but Cena was excellent. Great gluten free options, and very conscientious staff who checked on orders. No aftereffects either, which validates the caution. Very tasty food and great portion sizes. A thumbs up from all in the group. Thanks Cena.

    Lovely restaurant. My only constructive criticism is I don't like it when the tip is added to bill. I know it's optional but some people may not realise or feel obliged to pay it. I always tip but I like it to be my choice and not something you feel obliged to do.

    Feared the worst when we arrived. We were seated at the last free table and the place was jumping! But we needn’t have worried - all of our food was well presented and absolutely delicious. Friends with us were visiting for the first time and said they’d definitely return. The staff were very welcoming and worked well together. Yes we did have to ask to order more drinks but given just how busy the place was that was no problem to us at all. Looking forward to our next visit in the new year.

    The food was lovely, though not a huge selection. This however is my second visit within a fortnight and on both occasions, the service has been poor. The waiting staff were uninterested, very slow to take drinks orders, then a long wait before returning to take meal orders. Very littler interaction, seemed more interested in leaning on one another near the kitchen. It's a shame because this restaurant has a better reputation than that. Unfortunately I'm afraid that we are unlikely to attend or recommend based on the above

    I specifically requested a table downstairs but was seated upstairs, the man that greeted was dismissive and said not on the booking. Didn’t ask if reason for this or try to resolve the issue.
