Fantastico!Chose this restaurant for a reunion dinner to reminisce about our trip to Italy! Felt like we were right back there..Wine list was nice, our waiter recommended two very good bottles. Menu was exactly what we were looking for..Authentic Italian food made fresh! The braciole w/ gnocci was magnificient. Restaurant was crowded and every dish that came out of the kitchen looked better than the next. My husband enjoyed a veal chop which he declared was the best he has ever had! The icing on the cake was the homemade limoncello they served complimentary. Benny, the owner visited our table and told us about growing up in Sicily. A definite must for foodies looking for an authentic Italian meal..Well worth the money.....6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAll around goodWas a very pleasant experience.Good was excellent, service was very attentive and the entire staff was friendly and helpful. Would diffidently recommend for a nice night of good food, atmosphere and service without having to go into the city.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Frutti de Mare and homemadeBest Frutti de Mare and homemade pasta I have ever had. And, having zucchini leaves is an amazing treat! Having Benny walking around checking in on us is a great feature too. What a wonderful meal!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat findWe had our son's graduation party here and the service and food were great. It was a Tuesday evening, the restaurant was empty by the time we were done and we were never rushed. I would say the food leans more to Central Italy, with some Northern and Southern dishes, all very good. The service was warm and reminicent of traditional fine Italian service.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSo close to home and so good!This family run restaurant always strives to please the customer - and they never fail. Food and service is always great. Menu specials are inventive and always a good choice. A great place for having a wonderful dinner with friends!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Italian Cuisine in WestburyBenny was an excellent host circling the tables ensuring all was well!

However, overall the experience was excellent.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat timeAmazing food, great service me and my family had a grea time.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good but OldishVery good food and service but a little too old Italian for me and a little too dark and somber on the inside. Worth going back for another meal though and just concentrate on the food.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent. Had aFood was excellent. Had a diverse menu with lots of specials.

We were happy to see some of the same waiters. We had the burata with tomato. It was creamy and delicious. Next we had linguine with tiny clams and hot sausage. It was excellent! We finished with a special request, steak Diane which is prepared table side. It was an item that used to be on the menu. As it was the Saturday before Mother's Day and the restaurant was busy, we were very happy that they could accommodate us. We were celebrating my husbands birthday.
Benny came out of the kitchen and came around to all of the tables. All in all an excellent meal in a first class restaurant with a first class owner and staff.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant EveningWe have been meaning to go to Benny's for quite some time so we finally did this past Saturday night. Overall, it was a good experience. The food was consistently good however there was nothing that caused any of us a "wow" reaction. It was "Saturday night crowded" so the service was good but not consistent. I would go back again as in all, it was above average in all respects.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very tastingThe food was very tasting and the service was friendly and right on.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a wonderful evening,It was a wonderful evening, we're seated promptly,service was outstanding and the food excellent! It was resterant week and it was really hopping. The desert was amazing, just wish the portions were bigger. We'll be back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWine CellarWe were seated inn what they call the wine cellar, a little dingy, but intimate. I thought we would be so out of the way that service would be minimal, however they never forgot us and the service was exceptional. The food was very tasty and hot. The only drawback in this room was when they had to roll a large table through it. We used our smartphone for music and it was quieter than the rest of the restaurant. Definitely worth a return trip.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a very pleasant surpriseWhat a very pleasant surprise this was. We just loved everything about Benny's including Benny.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always Benny's was terrific.As always Benny's was terrific.

The food was delicious and the waitstaff was very attentive to our large party. We really enjoyed the experience and will definitely be going back.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place for traditionalA great place for traditional Italian food with a nice touch of the exotic in some of the dishes. They do many things you may have heard of or had in other restuarants but they manage to do them better and with their own personal touch. Will always leave there and feel you were appreciated and treated with great respect Gary.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA MEMORABLE LUNCHWe were a group of six and not one of us was disappointed. Our waiter was fabulous and was so helpful in our selection of all courses! Calamari, Broccoli Floret, Benny's Rollatini, Pan Seared Scallops, Rigatoni Pugliese, Chicken Gismonda,and a Veal Special. We wanted to have it set up in a "tasting manner". Our waiter made a suggestion to "trust him" in setting up these dishes for all of us to experience; we did. Needless to say, he had the kitchen arrange our dishes where we all had a sampling of everything! The food was fabulous. If I was a person like Peter Giannoti, I would give Benny's 5 CHEF HATS.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter reading a glowing reviewAfter reading a glowing review in a local newspaper we decided to try this venerable restaurant. It was terrific! The service was most attentive, got to meet Benny and his daughter and son and had a great meal. We will be returning soon. Do not hesitate to try this place if you never been before.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA superb dining experience.A superb dining experience.

Being greeted by co-owners Lisa and her brother makes you feel like your having a special meal with family. The pasta special was homemade and the fish was delicious (Swordfish and Sea Scallops). This was my first time eating there and my mother in law and I were beyond impressed. This restaurant has been around for 26 years and I'm not surprised. We plan on coming back again in the very near future.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother good meal for thr moneyHave been going there for over 20 years.

Excellent3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I used to beMy husband and I used to be very good, frequent customers of Benny's many years ago, then for some reason we stopped going.Other places closer to our home opened and we literally forgot about Benny's! Looking for a place to catch dinner before a NorthFork Theater show on Saturday night we rediscovered Benny's and happily found it to be just as wonderful as always. The food was fresh and delicious, the service impeccable. We both had fish dishes, mine branzino, his red snapper and they were both cooked perfectly and scrumptious! We will remember in the future to go to Benny's for a special occasion, or just a romantic night out !3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service and the food isThe service and the food is always outstanding as is the personal attention from the owner and the waiters.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always dinner was excellent.As always dinner was excellent.
