The service was wonderful but the food was not good at all! We’ve had lunch there several times and have always been happy. I guess dinner is a different story. My pasta was sticky and bland, my husband’s chicken was rubbery and our son’s pizza was soggy and covered in onions 🤷🏻‍♀️. I hate to leave a bad review but we were pretty disappointed.

The Italian Nachos we had for an appetizer were wonderful. I had chicken parmesan and it was nice and crunchy on the outside, while being tender and juicy on the inside. My wife had the arugula salad and it was crisp and flavorful.

Benucci's has consistently good food, particularly salads and pastas. Our server could not have been more cheerful or professional. My only complaint is that the red wine is served too warm.

Loved the Key Lime Martini and the Chocolate Raspberry Martini. Loved the Mozzarella Frites and the Tuscan Pizza. Loved the Peanut Butter Pie. The Marguerita Pizza was rather bland. The flavor of the chocolate torte was rather disappointing as well. But we love Benucci's and will be back.

Lively, busy place with ordinary Italian food. Ordered veal park-- got chicken parm! Computer screwed up the payment of check --- had to get manager involved; still lack clarity as to what happened but could of comped us a dessert or drink for the fuss and mistakes!

Doubtful I'll be back! Priced well though!

Atmosphere was quiet and we were able to carry on a conversation. Waitress was very attentive. Food was tasty, but my piece of chicken (in the Chicken Parm) was small. It was served over more pasta than I could eat.

It was a pleasant experience overall. I find it a bit pricey, considering what my entree was, with no salad accompaniment. I had Polo Formaggio.

I made a reservation online within an hour of the time I chose. The reception staff had the reservation and a table for me and my guest. The menu offered a nice variety of foods, including a number of vegetarian options...perfect for my friend. The service was prompt and courteous and the food was delicious.

A very nice Italian restaurant. Nice variety of interesting food. Friendly service. Good bread. I have been to this restaurant a few times and will go back. Not a very good beer selection and the house wine is poor. Outside of that I can only think of positive things to say.

Had the eggplant rolettes. They were burned and dried out. Pointed it out to the waitress and she said, oh no they look perfect. They were terrible. Didn't really want to make a scene in front of friends and relatives, so ate what I could. This is a place that just cranks out the food and doesn't really care what's on the plate. Stick to the pizza.

For the quality of the food I received, this restaurant is expensive! The food isn't any better than the Macroni Grill or Olive Garden. But, it's more expensive than both.

We had a comfortable table shaped in a half circle. It was located apart from other tables so we were able to hear each other easily. I was honestly surprised that the food was just ok, especially because the prices were higher than ok. We wanted to try the restaurant but don't foresee returning.

I went with my husband before we went to a movie at Pittsford Cinema. He wanted good wine and a light meal. I wanted a good gluten free option with good service since I drink a lot of water. We both got what we wanted.
