Spring Vegetables and Many Festivities
During April, a Cena Ristorante is celebrating spring and some of the essentials that spring brings to Italian cuisine.
April has arrived and we’re excited about spring vegetables, fresh peas, ramps, young onions, garlic, favas, asparagus and artichokes. The winter is finally behind us. These lovely items and their earlier-than-usual arrival will enhanced an already abundant menu this month and into May.
a Cena wishes to celebrate these across-regions vegetables by presenting Chef Gabe Gabreski’s familial and recent recipes. Please come and enjoy this experience at a Cena.
Of course our regular dinner menu is always available.

Open for Lunch and Sunday Early Dinner
11:30am – 2:30pm, Tuesdays through Saturday.. Here is a sample of our current lunch menu and Sunday comes with an early opening–3:00pm–and Chef’s take on “Family Dinner.” There will always be something new to try as our menu does change frequently.
Kiosk and Walking Map
The Sellwood Westmoreland Business Alliance has constructed an informational 3-sided kiosk placed permanently at the key intersection of Milwaukie and Bybee on the NW corner. One side displays the newly created map showing our SWBA members, while the second panel displays the same map but with neighborhood resources and amenities such as parks, walking trains, library, community center, etc. All three panels feature upcoming neighborhood events.
