    Banchetto Feast far exceeded my expectations, especially for a restaurant located in a mall. The salmon, cooked exactly as I had requested it, was delicious as was the sauce that accompanied it.

    I invited three friends for lunch and we all enjoyed our meals, the service and the ambience. This was my third time at Banchettos and I will definitely return again. It's a local place to count on for good food at reasonable prices.

    Being I made a reservation 4 days in advance, I expected a nice seating area. Instead we were given a booth for my party of 5 right next to the waiter's serving station, which was very hectic.. When asked if we could switch, we were told the other tables were booked. As for the food, it was good with the exception,, most of us were still eating and the waiters started cleaning off the plates to those who were finished. That left us feeling like we were being rushed. We asked if they could leave the plates until our party of 5 finished. Apparently that didn't work . They continued to clear, even taking my side plate of pasta which I WASN'T finished!!! Sadly this experience left me not wanting to return

    My friend and I loved the decor of this restaurant and especially loved the food! The appetizer salad with the fresh crabmeat was delicious and the portion was huge. I had the orange glazed salmon and it was delish and my friend had chicken with peppers in a sauce and she enjoyed it as well. As for desert, well the gelato in the coco shell was so good and even though we were full from our meal we finished every bit of it. All the staff were friendly, courteous and made sure we were enjoying our meal. We both would definitely return to try some of the other dishes on the menu. Another great restaurant to return to in Nanuet for sure!

    Banchetto Feast serves up the best chicken francese ever. The little rolls that come with the meal are irresistible. The pizza is also excellent. The service is usually very good. My only complaint - and this is me being nit-picky - is that almost every picture hangs crooked on the wall. I have to restrain myself from getting up and straightening them.

    It was the first time dinning at Banchetto Feast. Came with out of town guests and we all were so impressed. The food was exceptional - there were so many delicious sounding items on the menu. The salad was wonderfully fresh and perfectly seasoned. One of our group had Talapia Francaise and couldn't praise the dish enough!! We had a wonderful waitress, Lola, who was very pleasant and helpful with answering our questions. We had a fantastic dinner from start to finish - everyone was so pleasant and friendly - we never felt rushed as we lingered over coffee and desert. I HIGHLY recommend Banchetto Feast and I can't wait to return!!

    We will definitely be returning to this restaurant. It is a real find. The food is delicious and the portions are generous. The menu is extensive enough to please just about anyone. One thing my husband and I always check out is the bread...this bread met our high standards of crispy outside and soft inside served with sweet butter. Banchetto Feast gets a gold star from us.

    It was very busy but my wife and I were seated immediately. We had a reservation, but I've been to places that we still had to wait even with a reservation. Our server was smiling and pleasant and took our drink order immediately. We started with crab cakes: warm, fluffy, light…delicious! There were only two but that is a good portion size—it is an appetizer after all. I had a caesar salad and my wife had the Banchetto salad. Both were excellent, and I'm not a salad eater. My wife had the salmon which she just about did her "When Harry Met Sally" restaurant routine. She loved it! My branzino was an ample portion and it was fantastic. We never waited long for anything. Overall, we would definitely return!

    My wife and have been dining at Banchetto for over five years, since it was abandoned in the old Nanuet Mall. Originally we attended the restaruant when my wife was pregnant with our twins. The most memorable experience's besides never a bad meal was the excellent and personable service always provided. We have since been back numerous times with and without the twins, and the parents and the in-laws. We have also attended large gatherings such as christenings and showers all with good food and excellent service. I always recommend Banchetto to friends it was always a go to for us and hope everyone has the same experience as we have.

    We have come to rely on this terrific spot as a place that never disappoints. It was more. Rowed than we have ever seen it, yet we were warmly greeted and immediately seated (so glad we had made a reservation). Even though they were extremely busy, they gladly accommodated my food allergy and made the dish I requested perfectly without the offending ingredient. This place is a real winner.

    My husband and I came to dinner here for my birthday. We split the meatball bites which were very tasty. The rosemary bread and garlic knots they provide are quite delicious. I had the chicken mama Mia and he had veal parm. Both generous portions.we wanted to save room for dessert so we both had doggie bags to brig home. I had the canoli and he had vanilla gelato. Only down side he really wanted chocolate gelato but they don't have any! We will certainly be back. We had a great happy hour drink at the bar with really cheap prices!

    Although the restaurant had a nice ambience and the service was good....the food was tasteless....although people in the party(6) enjoyed the bread and the garlic nots.......Veal dishes....were inetible...and left over....and most other dishes were tasteless. I think they need to buy and use something called Spices which clearly the cook forgot to use... Will I go back.....honestly there's no way unless they get some talent in the kitchen. Although we were told that the $6.95 lunch was excellent....Note that was by people in their 80s.....for those of us in their 60's the dinner for $90 (2 people)....was truly a disappointment.

    Our group of 17 people ranged in age from toddlers to grandparents. There was something for everyone on the menu. The waiter took a quick order for the three toddlers as soon as we sat down so their food would come before everyone else's, which was a great help. In general, our waiter was great and there was always waitstaff available if we needed anything. There was no push to order appetizers, wine or dessert, which I appreciate. I spoke with Joe, the manager (owner?), in advance by phone to pay for the meal with a credit card so that the guest of honor couldn't fight for the check. He graciously accommodated our request. I would definitely return again.
