ONLINE RESERVATIONS ARE LIMITED. PLEASE CALL THE RESTAURANT IF YOUR DESIRED TIME IS NOT AVAILABLE.

We are proud to offer 75 kinds of different pasta recipe, fresh and hand-crafted 12 hours a day.
"Bencotto" means cooked well: this is what authentic Italian food is about.
It tastes as it should and would in Italy.
Bencotto offers two different eating environments: guests can either enjoy their meal at our “kitchen-esque” bar downstairs, or they can relax in the intimate low-ceiling dining area upstairs. The décor creates a clean and sophisticated atmosphere, where old-world charm and warmth blend with contemporary appeal.

    Food was great, service was bad. It's a shame because the food was delicious, would maybe try again just for the food.

    I brought my family here for birthday celebration. It is sad that their food is no longer good. Selection is limited and its tasteless. They even add $25 for cake tab. I can't believed it. I've never seen this fee before. The service is good. I would never come back to this restaurant. It is sad that it became this bad.

    We split an excellent salad and each of us had a different pasta entree. All were outstanding! Our waiter was knowledgeable and made good recommendations. I order the cheese wheel pasta, which was awesome. Finished off the meal with a nice lemon sorbetto.

    Pros: cheesewheel pasta was unique and made the pasta super cheesy (in a good way). Wait staff was great and apps and drinks came out super quick. Cons: Had reservations for weeks in advance and were seated outside right by the sidewalk by everyone waiting in line and the cold wind. Other than the cheesewheel pasta food was nothing special and priced like a high end dining experience.

    Was really looking forward to fresh pasta but was so disappointed. I had Tagliatelle with Pesto Sauce and my husband had Tortelli Di Margo with Bolognese Sauce. Both pastas were overcooked, the Bolognese sauce was watery and flavorless and the pesto sauce was dense and unsavory.
