Benny’s was the perfect place to end our trip to Westbury, NY to watch Justify win the triple crown! The food was absolutely delicious and the wait staff was attentive. I only wish we had another night in Westbury to go back and try more dishes!

We've been living in Westbury for 6 months now and heard about Benny's a few times. The food was very good especially eggplant a la benny. The service was very bad. We went at 530 on a Saturday and it went from empty to packed quickly. The wait staff seemed overwhelmed and confused. They didn't come around very often and we waited over 25 minutes for our dinner plates to be cleared off the table.

We went during L I Restaurant week. A three course meal at a fixed price. We were annoyed as we entered by them not accommodating us in our table selection. Benny's was three quarters empty and yet they seated us at the table not to our liking. We asked to move and they replied that we didn't ask for a specific table when we booked. They argued until a table opened up along the wall. We waited until they cleaned that one and we sat down. At no point did the restaurant fill up while we ate so we still do not understand why they weren't more accommodating. The food was good but not outstanding. We will not be running back because of what we perceived as poor client service.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Benny’s. The service is impeccable and they make you feel so at home. Benny’s egg plant appetizer is always the best! My husband really enjoyed his pork osso bucco. My branzino was filleted perfectly and was accompanied with clams and mussels. Wonderful dinner!

RAINBOW TROUT WAS NOT FRESH. VEAL PARMAGIANA WAS OLD AND WATERY. MY BROTHER ASKED FOR THE SAUCE TO BE SERVED ON THE SIDE. VEAL WAS SOAKED WITH MARINARA SAUCE WHICH APPARENTLY WAS USED TO MASK THE OLD, POOR TASTE OF THE VEAL.

I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT TO MY PHD OR LAW COLLEAGUES. VERY DISAPPOINTED.

WE CAME FOR RESTAURANT WEEK BUT WERE CHARGED OVER $100.00. Left $100.00 bill with no tip. Denied that lunch was part of restaurant week but I made the reservation through Open Table of Restaurant Week and it was accepted for NOON. Restaurant had one other customer which my brother brought to my attention immediately.

We brought my mother here before a show at the music fair. It was close and convenient and everyone enjoyed their meals. I had the stuffed filet of sole and it was the best I've ever had. We will go back for sure.

When you think traditional, top-notch Italian cuisine with impeccable service - you're thinking Benny's. It's got all of the old world charm without feeling dated - and the menu has everything you've loved about Italian food since you were a kid, plus all of the things you learned to appreciate as your palate matured. I honestly cannot say enough about the service at this restaurant - you're treated like you are the most important person in the restaurant and everything is perfect always. You won't get flashy, you won't get gimmicky - you get classy and delicious!

While the food was very good, the service was very slow for our group apparently because they had been booked for a larger lunch event at the same time, and they had insufficient staff, both in terms of the chefs and waiters to serve us in a reasonable time period. What should have been an hour or so lunch, lasted more than two hours. Nevertheless, the food was very good.

It was our third time to Benny's everything was as good as the first time. Benny is a wonderful host. He makes it a point to walk around to each table and chat with you. Cant wait to go back. His veal dishes are great and so is the gnocchi in the veal ragu sauce.

This was my first visit to Benny's and I must say - every course was delicious! I especially loved the trout special and the flourless chocolate cake. Plus, the super courteous wait staff went out of its way to make sure my gluten free needs were well taken care of. We felt like special guests at a friend's home. That's not so easy to find these days and I look forward to visiting again soon.

Whenever we have concert tickets to "The Space" in Westbury, we always go to Benny's for dinner before the concert. The location is perfect, the food is always wonderful, and we enjoy Benny's very such. Prices are great and portion size is perfect.

As always we enjoyed impeccable service. The Food was superb . I had a plain grilled veal chop that was not on the menu. We also ordered the stuffed rainbow trout. Both entrees were great. For starters we shared the buratta and the beet salad. Each was served as separate portions. This is definitely my favorite place to come for a "class act" dinner.

With Benny's constantly being on the list for top restaurants on Long Island I had I expectations. The service was great, the food OK, a bit on the salty side. The house wine by the glass was pricey. I will give it another try however.

The whole family went - including our two young kids. Everyone really enjoyed dinner. The service is friendly and attentive. The food is delicious and fresh. The starters of Fried Calamari, Spiedino Alla Romano, Beef Carpaccio and Eggplant Rollatini were all very nice. The mains of Veal Sorrentina and the Bucatini con Le Sarde Alla Siciliana were very good. The kids loved the Fettuccine Carbonara which reminded me more of an Alfredo. We watched them make the Zabbaglione fresh - very good stuff. The kids loved the tartufo - the ice cream in it was very creamy. I was really pleasantly surprised and would recommend Benny's.
