This was the 2nd time we've eaten
here and the food was, again, very good. There are a few specials along with the regular menu and there is a something for almost everyone to eat. The service was good and we sat outside which is really nice because even though cars can go by, it's very quiet back there. We enjoyed it very much."

As is the case in a place you
haven't been to in few rounds Banchetto Feast never disappoints. The service was excellent and the food was perfect. everyone loved what they ate and the friendly atmosphere was welcoming. We will be back again soon."

We recently enjoyed dinner with
friends at Banchetto Feast. The food was quite delicious and everyone seemed to be more than satisfied with their meal. I had Scampi Milan which was prepared a little differently than most scampis, this time with breaded shrimp. It was delicious, light and flavorful. Others had grilled salmon, and steak. We shared two desserts, flan and the chocolate explosion which were really good -- rich without a cloying sweetness. Service was attentive without being intrusive. I would definitely return."

Had a great night to sit outside -
food is consistently good. The special salad was amazing - spinach, lump crab, mangos, sliced almonds, tomatoes, and avocado - so yummy!"

We made the reservation through
open table and it was confirmed. We were taking my 85 year old mother-in-law out for a Birthday meal. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were told that there were two private parties that day and could not accommodate us in the dining room. We were given a choice of sitting outside (not an option for a 85 year old when it is 85 degrees) or they could seat us in the corner of the buffet room, but were told that was where all of the guests from the private parties would be walking by. Would have loved to rate the food and the ambiance - but never got the chance. Disappointed."

Not bad for a family place, on par
with Bensi, but in Northern New Jersey, with the best Italian restaurants this side of Tuscany, the food is a bit disappointing, and we were somewhat forgotten sitting inside."

Another lovely dinner!!! Food was
great (try the peppadew pepper app). We sat outside for 3 hours getting cordial and attentive service from the wait staff and the owner."

Came to Banchetto for a nice lunch
with a friend. Sat outside on their patio. Since there were only two of us, we shared the small portion of the fried calamari app and the ricotta fritta app (which was so delish!). Fried calamari was ok. My friend then ordered a chicken pesto panini which she loved and I had a small cesear salad. Very tastey. Overall great lunch! Definitely recommend the ricotta fritters."

Restaurant was VERY empty for a
holiday, I made the reservation the night before with no problem and out of 20 tables in the room, including my table of 10 there were 2 other tables being used. Some food criticism: Their bread was delicious. Appetizers: we ordered bruschetta (was great, they also added on balls of fresh mozz), calamari-little rubbery, and baked clams--not bad. for my main course I ordered the broiled scallop and spinach special. The spinach did not have enough oil or garlic and the scallops were not fresh."

PARTY OF 4 WE ALL ORDERED THE SAME
LUNCH SPECIAL.. EGGPLANT WITH SALAD.... THE SALAD WAS GOOD, HOWEVER THE EGGPLANT WAS 1/8 INCH THICK WAS POUNDED AND BREADED LIKE A PIECE OF SHOE LEATHER.. COLD AND SOME BALSAMIC PLACED OVER IT.... THE EGGPLANT MUST HAVE BEEN MADE A WEEK AGO, COULD NOT TASTE THE FLAVOR AT ALL. WILL NOT GO BACK AGAIN."

Another terrific experience at
Banchetto! Our friends said "We wish they would open in Westchester! Food was delicious, reasonable and well served. The co-owner, Nastasha, is especially A1 and 1A!"

We were six people and all of us
enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere and food are good. It wasn't very busy and we did have to look for our server so we could pay the bill."

The food was good, but service was
not great never had wine poured and byob wine should have been taken when seated. On a positive note we were not rushed."

The shrimp bisque was delicious!
And the lunch specials are a real bargain. This restaurant never dissapoints."

It was ok. We ordered a couple of
appetizers. Fried calamari and baked clams. The calamari was overdone and I didn't like the taste of the baked clams but the rest of my party didn't seem to mind. In terms of main course, one of us ordered a hamburger. It was requested to be cooked medium came out well done. It was very dry. We could've sent it back I suppose but at that point it just didn't seem worth it. I ordered a chicken milanese sandwich which was pretty tasty and pretty big (took half home) and we also ordered a chicken champagne pasta dish. Once again it was ok, nothing great. I did get the white chocolate rice pudding for dessert which was delicious. Service was great & people nice, but the food, unfortunately nothing special."

It is located in a strip mall, in
the rear. A bit hard to find if you are looking for the street address. Upon arrival we were greated. They wanted to seat us in a big room with no atmosphere. Asked to be seated in the front room. Much better. Food was good and prices reasonable. BYOB. They do sell half and full bottles if wine. But not a good selection."
Dined on 8/3/2013
This place has great Italian food
and they're sauces are on point and well balanced. They're garlic knots are excellent as is their pesto. Prices are good and I've already eaten here twice. Definitely a place to check out."
Dined on 7/15/2013
Service here is horrible, or
perhaps it was just our waiter. He forgot my side of pasta, didn't get my salmon well done, and disappeared for most of the night leaving us sitting and sitting and sitting until finally another waiter came over and asked us what we needed. No mention of dessert menu. They need to retrain the staff here. My salmon was undercooked (I asked for well done), and some of the portion are too big for one portion. I would skip this place. We won't be back."
Dined on 7/13/2013
I think our waiter had good
intentions, but we waited far to long for everything. And sometimes had to ask for things more than once. We had a two year old with us who was clearly restless. Typically servers know to keep things moving with a kid at the table. We were there for over 2 hours. The BYO is nice. But once the waiter opened the bottle of wine he left it for us to pour. Odd..."

Always feel "at home" at
Banchettos ! Food is good and the hostess ,Natasha , makes a point to insure you are comfortable, enjoying your meal and that the waiters are on top of things."

First time dining at this
restaurant, although have eaten at this location severaL times, with different restaurants. For a Sat. night, was not very busy, which bodes poorly for the long-term staying power of this restaurant. The service was very attentive,the food was very well-prepared and the noise level was tolerable. Would return again for a good, casual meal."

Had a post valentines day dinner
with my girlfriend here. BYOB is a HUGE plus! We brought our own bottle of red wine and they uncorked it and served us. Our waiter was very attentive to our dining experience and accommodating. They served my dinner exactly the way i wanted it. I am on a veagan diet and i ordered whole wheat pasta primevara with spicy tomato sauce. Im a spicy eater and the spice was just right. No complaints here!"

Always dependable classic Italian
food. Always good service."

Restaurant was full and under
staffed. Service was poor and we waited for 20 minutes after we finished eating our meal to be asked if we wanted dessert (which we did not get). Then they added an additional meal onto our order. Fortunately, I caught that and had to wait further to have it removed. They did not serve less than a half a bottle of wine so my single glass I wanted was not available. I normally NEVER complain, but this was a horrible experience."

This restaurant was recommended by
several people for my group to have dinner at and we were not disappointed. We shared two "sharing appetizers" of fried zucchini and crab cakes. Both were very good. The crab cakes were full of crab with little filler. Our meals came with a nice size salad. Entrees ordered included Eggplant Rollatini, Shrimp Scampi Rolled in Bacon, Salmon & Crabmeat, Tilapia Piccata and a Veal Dish. All were very good and a nice size portion. We all went home with some leftovers as we left room for some dessert-layered chocolate cake and some gelato! The service was very attentive and we left with thoughts of including this restaurant in our rotation as we go out once a month."

the worst experience ever, we had
reservations at 6:45, place was half empty, waiter finally got to us at 7pm, he mumbled they were short waiters, he didndt speak very good english. after getting our salads at 7:15, we tried to get our waiter's attention to no avail, finally got our hostess, she was rude and said we will get your food soon, by 8:00pm nothing, we asked that our food be placed to go, had enough, finally got our food and bill at 815, they offered no apologies and were completley unprofessional! we went there for my sons birthday, horrible experience, stay away, there are alot of good restarants in westwood, this is not one of them."
