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 the Italian word for dinner, "cena". A legend claims that St.John the Evangelist was passing through the town on his way to Rome, and stopped for dinner.[citation needed] It is unknown if the latter had any affect on the former.
