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.

I was told that it was not a problem by the person who called from La Cena to confirm something on the... More

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.

All of the five star ratings in Tripadvisor might have created unrealistic expectations, but I was not impressed by La Cena. The food was a mix of slightly above or below average. My wife started with their version of a Caprese Salad. Slices of eggplant were mixed in with the tomatoes. It was very good and big enough for several... More

Booked a funeral luncheon here. Atmosphere was excellent. Private bar was available but we did not utilize it. Everyone raved about the food and the service for such a large group was outstanding. Price was competitive and well worth the cost.

Looking for a new place to dine recently, we had a pleasant surprise when we strolled into this restaurant. There was live music by a piano-man of well known favorites and the service was very attentive and courteous. The menu consisted of mainly Italian specialties and the food was very tasty and succulent. While not an exceptional long list of... More

My mother and I were looking for a special place to celebrate my birthday in September. I thought I knew all the restaurants in Bensalem but when I went online, I discovered La Cena. We read some reviews and decided to try it. What a delight! It reminded us of a supper club in NYC from a bygone era --... More
