Good food and atmosphere

We did not know what to expect at La Cena. Like I said in a different review about a nearby restaurant, I have to stop assuming that restaurants in a strip mall cannot be good. La Cena is more upscale than I expected. The food is somewhat classic Italian with a contemporary twist. The service is... read more

I felt very compelled to write a new review after my 5 star rating last year. Things are not quite as good......although the atmosphere and menu are the same, servings have changed. No longer do they offer the delicious complimentary salads. Getting 2 of our favorites from the past was a great comparison meter. My veal chef norberto (strange a... More

Lovely restaurant! Everything from drinks to dessert was excellent. Calamari appetizers , salad, prime rib special with choice of shrimp, crab , or lobster, Chilean Sea Bass over risotto , with asparagus and topped with chunks of crab meat! Rack of lamb was cooked to perfection . Everyone's meal was great as was the presentation.

We booked a party for my mother in laws 60th bday party. We agreed to meet Sunday morning @ 1130 so we had time to decorate and set up for the party. After waiting over an hour the manager finally shows up to open the doors and barely offers an apology. He tells us his paperwork said 1pm. At this... More

We have never had a bad meal at Last Cena. We've been coming here since it opened. Service has always been excellent. Many of our friends have gone & always enjoyed their meal. Go & enjoy.

We stopped in on a Friday night after driving by several times observing a very full parking lot. Made reservations for 6:30, seated promptly. Italian bread, focaccia and butter with a small salad came before entrees. House balsamic dressing as well as bread was awesome! Clams casino appetizers made with pancetta were the best we ever had.

Growing up in Bensalem, La Cena was always well known for their authentic Italian foods. Last time my fiance and I attended, we both ordered a veal dish which was very exquisite. I would highly recommend La Cena to any one who is looking for a good meal without having to drive downtown.
