    Benchmark is around the corner from where I live. I hadn't been there since it first opened and it truly has evolved into an exciting, fresh, creative menu. The pizzas were delicious, the dough fresh and chewy and I love the fact that they make everything - their sausage, cheese, dough etc. the produce is local and straight from farm to table. I had a glass of the Montipulciano - $6.00- and it was very nice. Our waiter was very friendly, attentive and warm - I will return again and again !

    This is our favourite neighbourhood restaurant. Outstanding pastas, pizza, salads and great wines on tap, and Strauss soft serve ice cream for dessert. The first seating can be noisy with lots of babies and children filling the dining room so book after 7:30pm if you don't like the noise.

    I really like Benchmark: excellent pizza, great sundaes, varied and interesting appetizers and salads. Don't miss the pistachio pizza. This past visit everything was great as usual, except the caesar salad, which is usually outstanding.

    Excellent pizzas, great salads, very friendly service, unpretentious, good for kids and families and just about everybody. We loved it and will be back. Highly recommended for good food without crazy prices or attitude.

    Had been wanting to check out Benchmark for a year now, but just hadn't found the opp. Really glad we did-- excellent food and nice setup. Only minus was that the service/food delivery was a little slow.
