We were entertaining a visiting family member who wanted a 4 p.m. supper because of her early morning flight home. LaCena is often our choice for dining prior to 5 p.m. My husband & I enjoyed Buffalo Caprese for our 1st course - our guest selected the Caesar Salad for hers. For our main courses, we all opted for veal:... More

Four of us visited LaCena on a Tuesday evening. The restaurant was very short handed, and we waited lengthy periods of time to have our drinks refilled and for our bread to arrive. We had to request items multiple times. Out of the four of us, only one enjoyed their dinner. The Veal Parmesan was very good. Not so the... More

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
