Diner Reviews
  • "The food was absolutely out if this world!! This was the second time I have eaten here both times I have loved the meals I got!! Their pizza reminded me of the pizza I used to order while I lived in Florence and I haven't had that good of homemade pasta in forever!! The service was really really slow, but the waitress was nice and we weren't in a hurry so it was okay. Overall really good experience and I will definitely be going back soon."

  • "We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation and were seated right away. The tables are very close together upstairs and we were surprised that they also had a downstairs where we were seated. There were 3 of us and we all had different meals and all were delicious. We go to the North End only once a year but I don't know if I would want to try a different place after this the meals were so good and well portioned."

  • "This was a good find in the north end. Nice and quaint, not too noisy. Using opentable to make the reservation was great as we were greeted at the door and a table was waiting for us and the staff was very attentive. Extra anchovies on the ceasar salad is a must and they delivered. Lobster ravioli was recommended and did not disappoint. Eggplant parm was good but a little bland for my taste. Overall a very enjoyable meal."

  • "Our waitress, Diane, was terrific. The fig salad and Vanessa's Pizza were delicious. However, we were very disappointed with the basement table the host tried to seat us at. After receiving an email confirmation, an email reminder, and telephone reminder we didn't expect to have such a poor table; nevermind that the host said they were setting a table in the main dining room for us. After I expressed my concern to the hostess, they did give us a table in th main dining room And we enjoyed our dinner."

  • "We arrived right on time for our reservation at Beneventos. The host had two seats that he showed us that were awful in the back of the place right next to the stairwell and next to a busing station. We asked if we were going to be forgotten at these seats and were told no we had the best waitress and she would take care of us. And he was right she was awesome. Diane was great. We ordered a couple of Peronis and the night began. We ordered two specials and split them. Beneventos chicken and Beneventos pizza. The pizza was really good but the chicken was really tasty. The smoked mozzerella and the sauce was great. Will definitely go back and would recommend this place to anyone."

  • "Terrible service will ruin halfway decent good .... unless you don't mind waiting 3 1/2 hours for an appetizer and dinner. You may even see your waitress more than once an hour or get your water glass filled more than twice in that time, but I wouldn't bet on it."

  • "A group of seven of us had a reservation here on for 7:30 on a Saturday night. Unfortunately we were not seated until after 8pm because the guests at the table before us were taking their dear old time. The hosts were friendly and kept updating us on the status of our table, but unfortunately the bar area is very tiny and some of our party had to wait outside until bar space opened up. The food did make up for the delay in seating. I had fresh pasta with broccoli rabe and shrimp in a white sauce and it was superb. Other's enjoyed their meals as well and the prices were very affordable. The waitress was pleasant although not as attentive as we would have liked because the restaurant was so busy. Over all a very nice meal. I would go back."

  • "I had been once before to Benevento's a year ago. And based on that chose it as the venue for a family dinner to celebrate the 19th birthday of our twins. The Benevento's team came through in every way for us... delicious and generous portioned food, excellent service and most impressive to me... they held a table for a half-an-hour for us despite a massive and impatient crowd. We had been unavoidably stuck in traffic en route to the restaurant. HIGHLY recommended!"

  • "Our party of 6 dined at Benevento's following a show in the Theater District. The food was amazing - it came out fast, made to order and piping hot. Our server was attentive and kept our glasses full and our table clear of clutter. A definite must."

  • "We were looking for a North End Restaurant close to the TD Garden to eat before the concert. Reservations were easy to make and when we arrived our table was ready on time. the service was outstanding and the food servings large. The pizza was delicious as were the ravioli's with meat sauce and the chicken brocolli alfredo. It's a tight fit between tables but cozy atmosphere in the heart of the north end. It was a quick walk to the bakery on the way back to TD Garden."

  • "I've always found the staff at Benevento's to be so much fun. Happy and really making you feel like a guest. Our lovely server (I think her name was Launna?) was awesome. Pizzas are great here, don't pass them up even to do as an appetizer with a group. The family had various pastas, all were good. Its nice that the menu is simple where you choose your pasta and choice of sauce. They have fancier dishes as well. Location is also good being away from Hanover and on Salem. Enjoy."

  • "We planned a last minute date night with a few activities and a late dinner. I was able to get a 10pm reservation at about noon the day of. Upon arrival the host/manager thought the reservation was for 6 people and was frustrated since he saved tables. He confirmed it was his staff's error.After that everything was perfect. I can't say enough great things about Diane our server. She anticipated our every need and made fantastic suggestions. The balance of conversation, service and leaving us along was spot on! ORDER THE MUSCLES ! EASILY THE BEST IN BOSTON! The servers congregate along tables. space constraints are understandable, they didn't all seem aware of their proximity to tables and diners with their server gossip and bad language."

  • "My gf and I went here for valentines day and we were greeted by a rude man who seemed very out of place, wearing a big heavy north face jacket. Not very inviting.. Don't sit downstairs. If you can grab a seat near the window do it. The downstairs is depressing, upstairs was loud and fun. Service was good. Pizza was great!!! Bolognese pasta wasn't all that great, but I'm not usually much of a pasta person. I would recommend."

  • "Our dinner at Benevento's was terrific. Cara, whom we've had in the past, was outstanding as our server. She even remembered us from our visit 6 weeks ago! The food was hot and delicious and there was very little wait. The only drawback: our table was right outside the kitchen and across from the bathrooms. Not the greatest spot, especially with inebriated Bruins fans lining up outside the bathroom. but we'll go back again, and soon. We just hope we get a table upstairs!"

  • "Delicious food, great prices and away from busy Hanover St. Have gone here now 4 times in the last 3 months with business colleagues and family. Will be my go to place in the North End. Besides their great pasta dishes they have great pizza as well. It is so good we get one as an appetizer."

  • "This is a very cozy restaurant that's warm & inviting. Service was excellent and Leanna was friendly, sweet, helpful, and efficient...definitely a nice addition to our night! The food was incredible! Pretty basic Italian dishes done well. My gluten free pasta was excellent and the bolognase sauce was to die for! They have 3 homemade pasta choices that are fresh & yummy. My friend who is a chef raved about the homemade fusilli with white clam sauce. The eggplant rolade appetizer is definitely worth a try. Portions are huge and you'll have enough to take home for another meal or two. Would've loved to try the deserts but no room! Can't wait to go back!"

  • "We had a very nice dinner. Food was great, service was good. The atmosphere wasn't ideal as it's a bit narrow and a bit loud, but that's nothing unusual for a mid tier North End restaurant. Our out of town guests were very impressed. For us, having sampled most of the north end's restaurants, it wasn't as special, but it was still very nice, and good value. This was our second time at Benevento's, and it won't be our last."

I had the chicken parmagiana and was a little disappointed. The chicken was a litle on the tough, rubbery side....just was. My date loved the eggplant parm. All in all a good experience... I'd recommend you give it a shot."

Food was good; pizza and pasta dishes pleased all except one. Would recommend for a casual dinner with reasonable expectations. Have to say service was exceptional."
