Not sure what is going on with the kitchen here. This is the second time we’ve visited recently and it has taken way too long to get our food. Service is definitely slipping from what we have become accustomed too when dining here.

Ordered a pizza and veal parmesan. Asked that the pizza have very light cheese. Pizza arrived swimming in cheese. Sent the pizza back. Veal had never been brought over. Server said the pizza was being remade and it was first in line. Pizza and veal finally came back after 15 minutes or so. Pizza was lukewarm so it was obvious it had been sitting in the back for some time. We've brought friends and family here before but most likely won't be back.

What a treat! Benvenuti’s is exceptional and the variety of dishes, presentation, ambiance, service and value is what makes this restaurant a perfect choice for an evening out. The restaurant provides all the important care of the customer. Social distancing, temperature checks and proper spacing is done so in a wonderful manner.

I love this place. The food and service are wonderful every single visit. Since it is on the pricey side Benvenuti's is a 1 or 2 time a year treat for us. This visit did not disappoint. I will also add that since it is a treat we tend to indulge :)

We had the shrimp cocktail as a starter and the shrimp were clean (why do so few restaurants get this right?) and just the right temperature. The cocktail sauce was delicious but the shrimp stood on there own.

We shared a wedge salad next and I loved the unique presentation and substitution of gem lettuce for iceberg.

My husband had the Wagyu strip steak and it was amazingly tender. Knife not really needed. Cooked perfectly.

I had the Kobe bone in ribeye and it was amazing. Seasoned perfectly and cooked to a wonderful medium rare.

I had the ice cream desert (Billionaires something?) and it was really good. Lovely chocolate coating with creamy interior. Perfect ending. Husband had tiramisu and coffee which he loved.

I wish I could recall our servers name as he did an excellent job. He was there but not overwhelmingly. Just taken care of as needed.

If you are looking for delicious, delicious food I cannot recommend this place enough.

Benvenutis is outstanding! My wife and I enjoyed the perfect meal and dining experience recently. It’s hard to deviate from our favorite mushroom rigatoni which is the best item on the menu in my opinion. Great wine, appetizer, salad, entree and dessert!

My Boyfriend and I went for out one year and it was perfect! Food was a very reasonable price for the quality. We were able to get an appetizer, 2 entrees, a dessert, and 2 drinks for $75. This is a very reasonable price for the AMAZING food that we ate. I have not stopped talking about this restaurant since we went.

First time here and our server, Ryan (I think!) was great! I had the mussels with a pink moscato, and my dad and stepmom shared a pizza. I kept my dessert light with the Banana Cream Tartlets and they shared the Carrot Cake! I would definitely return if I was in the area. So good! The low light was spot on (no pun intended).

The servers worked really well together from the time we walked in the door taking our temps, in between meals, and through cleaning off our dishes. For C-19, they offered outdoor heated seating and all the tables inside had hand sanitizer on them spaced well in between each other.

What was once an upscale creative restaurant had become just another college town pub that will permit anyone, regardless of attire. Our last visit was plagued by loud drunks and slobs in sweats and slides. Poor service to boot. No longer worth the costs. We won’t be back.

We love this place! They are very Covid savy. When we expressed in our reservation that we'd been socially distancing, they set us in a private corner in a separate room, which we had all to ourselves. So it was quiet, safe, romantic and as always delicious.
