    I always like to think of my Italian restaurants as someone's grandma is chained up in the kitchen slaving over sauce. While Benucci's is more modern than that, it's also a step above the national chains like Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill

    The host seated us immediately, and the waitress was prompt, friendly, and provided great service. The menu selection was excellent, though a little pricey. They had some delicious traditional Italian meals to match the traditional Italian decor. I would love to try eating outsdie ona nice night-I bet it would be a little quieter and a great people-watching opportunity since it is at Pittsford Plaza. I would definitely return for a special occasion.

    The best thing this restaurant has going for it is the food. Good bread, fresh tasting salad and excellent entrees. Very tasty lasagna with great meat souce and flavorful pasta, chicken and veggies dish. We were however very dissappointed in the glass of Sangria. In our experience these are typically served in a fairly large glass but in this case we got the smallest serving we have ever gotten......a small "high-ball" glass full of ice with maybe 2 to 3 ounces of Sangria. It was good, but when approached by the server asking if we wanted a refill we responded that the serving size was sub-standard and we were not going to order another. The server just said "okay" and walked away. We would return for the great food at a very fair price.

    We invited two other couples to join us for dinner. The atmosphere was perfect, the food was superb and the price is right too! Very enjoyable and we felt like we were treated well by the staff. We were not rushed out and spent a couple of hours just chatting in one of the comfy booths that fit six!!

    I love Benucci's, it is one of my favorite places to eat. They have great pastas and pizza, the best penne vodka I've ever had. They have outside seating, but its small and sits just off the sidewalk. Plenty of seating inside, with a nice bar, but they only have bottled beer, nothing on draft. The prices are reasonable, nice atmosphere and you can get in and out quick, just in time to catch a movie next door!

    I went to benuccis on a date with my boyfriend. I ordered the fried risotto and lasagna. the fried risotto came out crunchy and hot, absolutely perfect to start my meal. the lasagna also came out hot, sauce was a little watery, but delicious. My boyfriend ordered the lobster ravioli and shrimp. the shrimp was amazing, it had a great grilled flavor. the lobster raviolis were really cool; the cook used striped raviolis. we also shared the gelato and cookies dessert. it came with a perfect portion of gelato to share, but two biscottis the size of my pinky. I was kind of disappointed by that, although they were delicious. the waitress checked on us often and they had the proportions timed well. I had to wait 5 minutes for each plate to come.

    Great place to get a good meal before going to a movie at Pittsford Movie Theater. Service was quick and very friendly. Great selection of salads. I had an arugala salad with beets. Great selection of appetizers. They have a happy hour in the bar area that has great prices on drinks and pizza and appetizers. I love that you can make reservation on OpenTable very quick and easy!

    The salads were great, the wine selection was perfect and it was a quiet, cozy atmosphere, so we could talk and we did not feel rushed to leave our seats. A great place to get together to chat with friends without feeling rushed. Our server was very patient with us as we took a while to order and only had salads. We wanted to feel like we didn't have to overeat when we went out, seeing that we are all watching our weight. Just an overall great experience which we will do again at Benucci's.

    We were not happy with our Flat Iron steak selection, the sauce they put on it took over the flavor of the meat. My husband who never complains at a restaurant even if the selection is not satisfying, He told the waitress he did not like it and she only said oh and walked away. I have been at other restaurants and no matter who did not like their food was always offered something else. I think they should have another steak option. Since my husband is Gluten free, he can't eat pasta unless rice pasta and there was no option for that. For these reasons I don't think we will revisit Benucci"s again.
