My wife and I had dinner here on a Friday night. I had the veal saltimbocca. It was the done perfectly. Lightly battered, brown sauce and sage. My wife had a homemade ravioli dish that was succulent. The waiter was attentive in a good way; we never felt rushed. The decor is early 1980s, but the food and service made... More

This is the best restaurant in the Bensalem area. Seafood is done to perfection. Service is very good and bar drinks are done well. All of this and live music makes La Cena well worth the drive.

Hostess Kathy took our reservation with the comment we were in for a treat if it was our first visit. She was right on target. The Italian entrees were excellent, especially the sauces. Service was top notch . Female vocalist and live music on Thursday evening enhanced our dining experience with a variety of easy listening popular music from Adele... More

The food was delicious. The staff from the moment you are seated and until you leave are attentive and enthusiastic. The band that played tonight made this night one to remember. If you are ever in the area - this place is "The" place to go for dinner. Absolutely lovely.

Good food but stay away from the pizza place outback of the restaurant. Brutal itailian pizza with a horrible crust and cheese. Not sure if it is owned by the same people.

We were stuck for a place to go last minute on Saturday of Mother's Day weekend, and found La Cena online. Went in, sight and taste unseen, and boy we were happy we did! Started off with drinks, fried calamari and their delicious bread with olive oil and Parmesan for dipping. We all (6 of us) shared Caesar salads--the dressing... More

Since the area had been dusted in snow that morning, we decided to avoid any icy roads & looked for a place where we could dine at 4 p.m. La Cena, with its full-service bar, is available for diners seeking either a late lunch or early dinner. My husband & I started our meal with enjoyable plates of Caprese Salad... More

Moderation in all things...so my fiancee and I found out at this establishment. The salads were straight from the freezer. The fare was ordinary. The service was fine! Not so much the wine....

Restaurant is nicely decorated. The special scallop artichoke appetizer was fantastic. Salads are a la carte which was surprising for an Italian Restaurant. The main entrée took 40+ minutes to arrive. My husband ordered his lamb med/rare and it came out well done. I ordered a filet mignon medium and it came out well done. We were hungry so we... More
