The service was a little on the slow side for the restaurant not being too busy at 7:30/8:00 and the penne Alfredo was just okay.

Lasagna was heavy on the parmesan. It was overpowering. Since there is extra cheese on the table to add I'm not sure why the cooks use so much. That's my preference only though. Dining mates enjoyed their dinner. Liked the food but didn't love it. Very busy and noisy!

The food was delicious and the price was good, however both our food was Luke warm it could have been hotter. We heard the people next to us debating if they should send their food back because it wasn’t really hot. My vegetables were hot, but my ravioli’s and my husbands lasagna was warm.

I am glad that you offer an on-line reservation option. Benucci's was very busy on Tuesday night but we were seated right away and on time. Our waiter was pleasant and attentive. Two of the small plates at our table were dirty. One had a piece of red pepper or tomato on the bottom, and the next was soiled from that plate. That was not pleasant. The food was very good with good portions.

Arrived a few minutes before our reservation time and we were seated promptly. Drink orders were taken and we were informed about the specials. Drinks and bread arrived and starters and entree were ordered. Starters were at the table quickly, as were the entrees, but we never felt like we were being rushed. Everything was very good, from the starters to coffee and dessert. All in all, a very enjoyable meal.

Good food and good service. It was a quiet spot that was easy for conversing, even at 6:00 PM on a Tuesday. As a bonus tip- we went to the theater next door and it so happens that movies are half-price on Tuesdays.

Great place, good food, reasonable prices. We like this place especially because of the booths, that afford some privacy and make it a little quieter (tho' it is not really that noisy). Very popular spot for dinner and lunch.

Reading the Google reviews I was expecting much better than what we got. I have to say the weakest link is the physical structure itself. We were four and the table they gave us was a very uncomfortable and U shaped. It was not good for people who are not family and don't want to be leaning up against each other. I used the restroom facility and these were also not up to par to my expectations. The food was good but not exceptional. I would equate this restaurant in terms of the level of an Outback. If there were no there other choices its acceptable, but there are way too many better choices in the area.

I ordered the eggplant rollatini. It was small, charred, very little filling. The angel hair pasta did not have a red sauce and there was no sauce on the eggplant. Salad was OK. This meal was overpriced for the lack of quality. I ordered a cafe latte. It came in a small cup with very little latte. My husband said his meatball was awful and left it on the plate.

Great food, large quantities, good service. The scallops with pesto risotto were delicious. The tiramisu was probably the best we’ve ever had. Same for the creme brûlée with raspberry sauce. Divine! We went on a super hot and humid day, so the temperature inside was a bit warm and clammy for our taste. However, it wasn’t bad enough to affect our enjoyment of the meal. We will definitely return!

I always enjoy Benucci’s for their GF menu. I had a bad martini which they readily fixed. Service is top notch. Food was good, not great, but definitely good.

Food and Service were great! A little disappointed that a restaurant with a kids menu, high chairs, and huge bathrooms have no Baby Changing Stations, otherwise a good experience.

Good food, their fresh bread basket with garlic butter was good, they should serve more breads if number of guest more. Food was good. Would be even good if they can have more vegan and vegetarian choices in menu

Have always had a good meal at Benucci's. This visit did not disappoint. The Bruschetta Trio had a nice selection of flavors and was good to share. The Caramelized Salmon was cooked the way I asked and I was able to substitute whole wheat penna for the angel hair pasta. The Profiterole desert comes with four again just right to share for desert.

Excellent Menu, Amazing Italian Entrees, Good Wine selection and generous portions, Awesome warm Bread and Terrific Salad Entee Selections. Service is attentive and not intrusive. Very tasteful atmosphere and comfortable larger booths when needed. Great Catering Menu as well. Love giving business to our local establishments, and they show that they appreciate it as well. We have been returning to Benucci’s for countless years and hope for countless more to come!

We went for an early dinner (4 p.m.) hoping for a place for quiet conversation, and we were not disappointed. It was fairly empty at that time. Our server was attentive . The food was wonderful.
