Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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)."

  • "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!!!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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 ."

  • "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."

  • "I had an occasion to treat my colleagues who eat in some of the finest restaurants around. On our visit to Benny's for a business lunch they remarked how great their dinning experience was. The food, wine and service were outstanding but what made Benny's a hit was the way they made you feel like friends or family from the time you cross the threshold to when you return to your car."

  • "My husband and I ate at Benny's during Long Island Restaurant Week. Once it was known that we were having the special menu the night went quickly. The portions were smaller and the courses served very quickly. We had three courses and were in the restaurant for only a hour maybe even a little less. We have eaten at other restaurants during this special week and have never found the portions so small or served so quick. I'm not sure if I would return."

Welcome was friendly and genuine. Service generally competent but a bit indifferent. Waiter seemed bored. Would recommend and would go again however."
