This was our second time dining at this gem. Our group was six in number and we had convened for a college reunion. Needless to say since we had dined here before we were anxious to return. We were not disappointed from the moment we walked in the door we were greeted by friendly staff and seated a the perfect... More

We have enjoyed this restaurant over the years and always found their food to be exceptionally delicious. I am not sure if management has changed or the chef or both, or whether it was an off night for them. We waited 45 minutes for our appetizers to arrive though only three other tables were occupied on a Thursday evening. The... More

The restaurant has a very intimate feel to it. Traveling alone I ate at the bar where the service was very good. The server had an intimate knowledge of the menu and steered me to a very nice dinner of Pomodoro Salad and Rigatoni along with the house Cab. All were fresh and very tasty - expertly served with efficiency... More

This is our second visit to this large popular Italian on the waterfront. We were there on a very busy holiday weekend, and the restaurant was packed. Our waiter literally ignored us after taking our order. We never got our water refilled, never asked if our dinner was satisfactory, and had to flag down management to get our check. The... More

My family and I have been traveling up and down I-87 for years and have lived through more mediocre meals than I care to admit. That is, until we visited I'l Cena'Cola. It was a Sunday evening around dinner time when hunger pangs hit as we were driving south. Newburgh seemed to fit as a destination so we searched TA... More

I should start by saying that I went to this restaurant during Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, so maybe my expectations were a little too high. The menu we were given sounded delicious, but our portions were extremely small. My meal of stewed chicken tastes great, my mother ordered a pork dish that disagreed with her the rest of the night.... More

We have celebrated many anniversaries, birthdays and other special occasions at Il Cena Colo. This is a restaurant for special evenings. Excellent menu, many specials besides the regular menu. Food is well prepared and the service is outstanding. Ambiance is intimate and comfortable. I highly recommend Il Cena Colo.

My wife and I love this place. No matter what dining experiences we've had in NYC or other cities when traveling, this is one of the best. The staff is cordial, respectful and quite helpful in understanding not only the regular menu but also the extensive list of specials. My mouth and tastebuds have a great time!! The food is... More

Il Cena' Colo has been one of my favorite restaurants for the last 10 years...always a great dining experience. If you love true Italian cooking, this is the place. It's worth the cost...we always make sure to also go during Restaurant Week when the dinner is $30 per person...more than worth your while to go.

My blind date and I arrived at Il Cenacolo around 8pm Friday night, what a beautiful restaurant, so cozy & tight. Ok I'm going to be honest here I like to have fun and tend to be a little wacky no matter where I go, so I did feel a little up tight but what happened next was a memory... More
