A Cena

About A Cena

This gorgeous offering on the Richmond Road in Twickenham is the brainchild of Camilla Healy, an experienced international chef and party-planner. A Cena has a rich, elegant style that has seen it become one of Twickenham’s most-loved neighbourhood Italians. The old-fashioned gilt framed mirrors and candlelit white linens were inspired by Healy’s grandfather’s Italian restaurant, and the atmosphere at A Cena has a distinct family-run feel. The dining room is always buzzing with locals, and favourite dishes from the traditional menu include the slow roasted rabbit in Soave Classico sauce with pancetta, nutmeg, parmesan and brushcetta; the whole roasted seabass with fennel, white wine and olive oil mash; and the spicy mussel and tomato linguine.
