Came here for a mid-week business dinner at 7pm there were very few patrons. Food was OK, nothing special, Olive Garden stuff. I'd write a better review, but service was unforgivably slow given the number of diners.

My son loves Cenare and every time we visit College Station, we head here. He always gets the veal parm. Their salads are also delicious. My daughter always has a spicy chicken dish with jalapenos. Very good. The lobster ravioli is good as well. Nice atmosphere and terrific gelato and cappuccino.

My wife and I ate at Cenare's last week. This was the first time in several years, though mot sure why I had not been before. The food was great and very authentic and the atmosphere was good especially for a special occasion. The wait staff was very professional and helpful. It was not overly crowded and the way the...

I lived in College Station for five years and this was, hands down, my favorite place to eat. Whenever I fly in, this is my first stop. I have always had great service in this establishment. Some of the waiters are actually Italians so you may have to signal them to come to you because that is how waiters behave... More

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
