The food was fine. I enjoyed my Tortellini alla Diavola and stuffed mushrooms. It was just nothing spectacular. Cafe Capri in Bryan is better. If it did not have competition like that I would rank it higher. The biggest fault I had was with the service. I went with my wife for a quiet birthday dinner. They seated us next... More

My husband and I wanted to give our 21 year old daughter a lovely dinner for her graduation, including family and her closest college friends. I contacted Houda Cerone, owner, two months in advance, and she was sooooo helpful in our getting everything perfect. She created a set menu for our guests with several choices of both entrée and dessert.... More

We were part of a large birthday dinner and our host ordered large amounts of every appetizer. They were all so incredibly delicious, but we could stop eating the Crab au Gratin. You have to get it. We personally got the pollo parmigiana and the pollo Valentino. After the large appetizers we ate as much as we could and took... More

Based on the reviews saying this was a good local, family owned restaurant, we tried this place while visiting College Station. It was not crowded at dinner on a Saturday night, so we did not have to wait long for a table. The drink list is very limited and it all seems to come out of a bottle - even... More

The entrees were very good and the staff was very nice. My wife got the taramisu for dessert and we agreed it was the best we had ever had

Our favorite local family owned Italian Restaurant. We started with their amazing Calamari. Lightly fried, crisp and tender. Dad had lasagna, I had Gnochi di Mare, and my wife had Lobster Ravioli. As always, everything was wonderful. We should know, our first experience here was 27 years ago!

As a fan of local restaurants, I enjoy visiting them instead of chain restaurants when I travel. This place is a cute little Italian restaurant with very good food. I had the lobster raviolis and they were very good. I will come back again

As an Italian wife in a large Italian family, I surely no what great food taste like. The food at Cenare's is amazing. I asked for my dish to be spicy and it was amazing. I have never had such good food. The staff is friendly and are top of their tables, even on a busy night. To be greeted... More
