Cenadi (Greek: Genadioi) is a comune and town in the province of Catanzaro in the Calabria region of Italy.

Etymology[edit]

The town's name is derived from cena, the Italian word for "dinner". A legend claims that St. John the Evangelist was passing through the town on his way to Rome, and stopped for dinner.[citation needed]
