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!

We went to Benny’s to celebrate our daughter’s engagement. The staff made the night even more special and the food was excellent.

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.

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.

Benny's Ristorante has been a fixture in Westbury for longer than we lived in the area (37 years). Fortunately we didn't move far away so we can get back often. The pasta dishes are fabulous, especially the Fettuccini Carbonara and the Bucatini con le Sarde alla Siciliana, which are two of my favorites. They will serve them as a main dish or appetizer. Other appetizers on my list are the Pappardelle Frutta di Mare (fresh pasta) and the Eggplant alla Benny (usually on the Special List). Main Course take your pick. I have never had one I didn't enjoy and I always look forward to enjoying one of the special dishes for the evening.
The staff is always friendly, extremely accommodating and if you have a special request, all you have to do is ask. (Note: If you have a very special occasion and you would like a quiet little table in the corner...literally, ask for the wine room. It's a table tucked in the wine room perfect for two or four). The main dining room is calm enough to allow for quite table conversation but lively enough let you know that you're not the only one having a good time.
If you live anywhere nearby or are traveling to the area I highly recommend letting the food and charm of this well established local restaurant provide you with an enjoyable night out.

We all enjoyed our meals. Portions were good yet everyone cleaned their plate. Our children (12 and 9) loved the salmon dish. Very attentive, pleasant service. The only thing that brings down my overall rating ever so slightly is the fact that we found it a bit cool in the restaurant, especially with temperatures outside in the teens, it would have been nice to have a little more heat. Nevertheless, we had a nice meal and enjoyed our time.

This was a get together holiday dinner of "cousins". Benny's was selected because they offered Bucatini con le Sarde alla Siciliana, a dish that's not easy to find on Long Island. The dish did not disappoint. Other dishes and appetizers (Eggplant Rollatini especially) did not disappoint as well. The service was great. We ordered multiple appetizers and the staff separated them equally among the six of us before bring them to the table - a very nice touch. Benny's is on our repeat list.
