A Cena

418 Richmond Rd, TWICKENHAM, TW1 2EB

1 rosettes

An informal neighbourhood bistro-style Italian dishing up comforting, authentic cooking. Open with a stimulating partnership of pan-fried Cornish mackerel fillet with grilled cucumber salad and move on to pan-roasted lamb rump matched with a vibrantly minty salsa verde, braised tomato with onions and buttery smashed cannellini beans. There's pasta too, of course - perhaps fusilli with a cacciatore sauce of rabbit braised with vegetables, tomato, white wine and herbs. For pudding, torta di Verona is a moresome, tiramisł-like confection of light sponge soaked in bitter-sweet Amaretto liqueur and Marsala, layered with gooey mascarpone and served with blueberries and roasted almonds. Cheeses and wines all speak with an Italian accent.
