Diner Reviews
  • "Our party of six thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Benny's Ristorante. Everything was delicious...from appetizers to desserts."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Surrounded by all of the fancy overpriced Italian restaurants that people like to brag and say they ate there last night, this place blows them all away!. Been around a while, food is always the best!"

  • "An old time favorite - authentic southern Italian.. The pasta con sarda is pure Sicilian."

  • "As usual the dining experience started with a warm welcome in this family owned and run restaurant. Our party of 4 enjoyed a leisurely meal not being rushed to eat and leave. My husband and I have been steady diners at Benny's after have been introduced to the restaurant by a business associate several years ago. Food is consistently good and service has old world quality. Only complaint would be the tables could be just a bit larger for a party of 4. Try it..you'll like it!"

  • "We went here to celebrate a co-worker's birthday. We were looking for a nice Italian Restaurant in the area and Benny's was recommended. The food was great. Nice atmosphere with the white linen table clothes, etc. The service was wonderful and they even acknowledged her birthday with a song. She was very happy as she is from out of the country and was missing the celebration she would have had if she was back home. "

  • "We dined here for Mother's Day, and despite it being very busy, the service was very good and food, as always , was excellent. Everything was prepared to perfection, and service was professional and attentive. The scallops are among the best my wife has ever had and my veal chop was wonderful."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Made reservations online and asked them in advance to prepare braciole which is my mothers favorite. I got the scallops which were delicious and cooked perfectly. People are friendly and servers are very attentive and always want to please. Overall everything was great and would definitely recommend. "

  • "The food was great and so was everything else with the exception of a MINUTE piece of very good cheese cake that cost $ 8.00. We left on a "downer"."

  • "After reading reviews and talking to friends, my wife and I were hoping for an outstanding meal. The best thing going for Benny's is the welcoming warmth of the staff and the professional service offered by the waiters. Unfortunately, the meal itself did not match those standards. Both of us had the popular Veal Sorrentina. The veal was tender and tasty, as expected. It was, however, accompanied by tasteless string beans and a scoop of forgettable mashed potatoes. Why not pasta, at least as an option? The dessert menu was surprisingly varied, but our choices were, like the beans and potatoes, quite unremarkable. A nice dining experience, but the somewhat disappointing food would make us think twice about returning. "

  • "I could not have been more pleased with my dining experience at Benny's. Great service, food and wine. Easy to find and park. Well appointed room. Staff could not have been friendlier Will definitely return. "

  • "Some restaurants forget that restaurant week is their opportunity to shine and win new customers. Not Jenny's. We hadn't been in years and used Restaurant week to reconnect with the place and took some friends who had never been. We were suitably impressed. The menu was diverse and the food was great. We will be back soon."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "It was restaurant week and 2 of us ordered off the regular menu. The food was pricey, under seasoned and not what was expected. My friend got the pasta with shrimp, scallops Bd clams. The seafood was practically invisible and pasta stuck together. My branzini was oily and didn't taste like branzini. My friend who ordered off restaurant week menu was unable to get gluten free pasta even though it was on regular menu. The servers were trying but clearly under the constraints of an owner who was serving poor quality food as it was restaurant week. We would not ever go back!!"

  • "You want real Italian food go to Benny's. Service is just as good as the food and the fact that Benny is there working and greeting makes this place all the more special. Terrific."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "On a Saturday night you can expect a large crowd always a bit noisy in this restaurant. Food is good and owner, Benny, always makes his way around to find out how you are enjoying your meal. We made a rather late reservation in the afternoon but still managed to get a table at 7:30"
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "This was the first time at Bennys. The food was outstanding. The chicken scarpariello was delicious as was the stuffed veal chop. The veal was so tender you could use a fork to cut it. Also I recommend the eggplant rollatini a la benny. Service was also very good. Would definitely go back."

  • "Benny's is the definition of a Neighborhood Gem. The service is fantastic they really make you feel at home. The food is always good. Best Veal on Long Island"

  • "Have been to Bennys a few times over the years and always enjoyed my meal. Went again Saturday nite and must say the food was excellent ! Everyone in our party of 4 raved. 2 had the buccatini con Sardi. The veal scallopini with chestnuts was outstanding and the veal chop moist and juicy. Will be reurning soon."

    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "While the service was gracious & caring, unfortunately the food did not measure up. Flavors were bland & not distinctive; even extra lemon did nothing for my cod special. My husband's Chicken Scarpariello was off-the-bone, flavorless small pieces of chicken breast. The evening was saved by the lovely hostess (a family member)."

  • "Excellent experience! Superb service. Excellent menu. No disappointments throughout dinner. Definitely recommend."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Everyone at the table had a great dining experience. Menu featured many classic italian dishes and the specials sounded better than the next. Would rate the decor and ambience at slightly below average. So dont be concerned with the look and feel of the place as you will sit down and have a very good italian meal!!!"
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "We have been here several times and the food is always consistent. It is a little pricey but still within reach for a special occasion type meal. We'll go back. Only complaint was that they did not have the wine we chose. They substituted a younger version but did not adjust the price as they should have done."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "As always great. Pasta with shrimp, scallops and pieces of mahi mahi in a fra diavalo sauce was excellent."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "It had been many years since we last visited Benny's as we moved away from NY. Went back last weekend with my 90 year old mother. Benny himself came to the table where my mother complemented him on the excellent food and the two "senior citizens" had a friendly chat. The wait staff is professional and attentive without being intrusive and the food is just spectacular. The arugala salad was perfectly dressed, the swordfish was firm and delicious and my husband devoured his veal marsala saying it was the best he'd ever tasted. If you're looking for a great Italian meal served by professional wait staff in an attractive setting all overseen by a caring owner, Benny's is the place to go. You won't be disappointed."

  • "Our first Valentines Day as Husband and Wife we decided to try Bennys, the reviews said the food was great and excited to try somewhere new. We arrived and were seated 10-15mins after our reservation the dining room was full and we were seated literally on top of another couple we could hear there entire conversation. Which also made it hard for us to each other. Once seated we were asked right away for our drink orders without even seeing a drink list. The Maitre'd seemed shocked we needed a drink list. We ordered drinks waited a wile to order dinner. As apps we ordered salad and baked clams which we thought seemed like a very long time for our appetizers. Dinner came an we were not impressed at all by this place. We wont be back!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Benny's is an old fashioned restaurant, good service, quality food, and quiet ambiance. The only negative was that they initially brought us to an undesirable table, It was a separate mini room with a single table. There were several tables for two available that were preferable. We asked for another table and they accommodated us ."

  • "We went to Benny's on valentines day and as usual had a great time! This is a gem of a place and I hope it's around forever. Make sure to try the buffalo mozzarella as an appetizer."

  • "Benny's is a special place that has managed to stay current. The Ceasar salad is among the best that I have ever had. Veal was butter soft. no knife necessary. Osso bucco atop gnocchi came off the bone without resistance."
