We were there a few weeks ago on a Friday night and it was wonderful. It was so good we went back last week, but went on a Thurs. night. It was a different experience. I know it was during the week so it wasn't as busy but they were really short staffed. Our server was trying to do everything from waiting tables, to sitting people, to helping bus tables and pack up food to making drinks. She was very nice but we had to wait a long time between getting dishes to getting the check, paying etc. We were there much longer than we planned to be. The food was still very good, but I'm not sure I would go back during the week. Perhaps on the weekend when it is busier and they have more staff.

I live nearby and always heard it was good, but never tried Di Benedetto's. I will now be a frequent flyer, so to speak. The food was outstanding and the prices weren't too bad.

We go back every year for our anniversary. The food is great, the atmosphere is wonderful and the entertainment (usually a soloist) is nice while you enjoy a nice dinner. The prices are reasonable and the portions are large. Service is superb!

The food is consistently excellent. My husband had the special orange roughy which was very flavorful. I had the chicken and sausage combo with peppers in tomato sauce with spaghetti. It was delivered cousin. Both portions were extremely generous. The entertainment was good and a little very addition to the ambiance. We are regular customers and will continue to go back.

We went for father’s day. We wanted to try a new place out and we all love Italian. Unfortunately we were really disappointed. Our waitress was fabulous and very attentive but the food was a total flop. Everything was greasy .. and the pasta was overcooked. Our table ordered chicken Vesuvio with potatoes, chicken Marsala with pasta, Angel hair with AGLIO E OLIO and angel hair with Alfredo sauce. Everything was very bland. There was a ton of olive oil at the bottom of the pasta and the vesuvio. The Marsala gravy was very watery with no taste . The chicken didn’t have any flavor either . We will not be going back.

Horrendous service & food experience. I have been vegetarian/vegan for almost 10 years, and when my pasta came out, it had chicken in it. Not a big deal - things happen accidentally in kitchens - tickets get misread, things get made wrong, and that I completely understand. I have worked in fine dining restaurants for 15 years. I didn't take a bite so I wasn't totally freaking out - I simply wanted it remade because I was hungry. But when the server comes back to the table 10 minutes after it was very politely sent back by the guest, only to rudely bark at the vegetarian that she definitely ordered chicken, it's flat out insulting. The icing on the cake was that she then said they were currently "RINSING THE NOODLES OFF and remaking the sauce". And I quote, it's "what we do". I couldn't even believe it. After in her table intro, she boasted how everything is made from scratch and to order? Please. We were given a $60 check and both left hungry after my partner pushed his pasta to the edge of the table because he didn't want to eat without me. Such a bad experience.

Katie - I'm sorry there was a misunderstanding with your order and the server. We never rinse off food and I'm sure they were going to remake the entire dish. Everything is fresh and made to order, I'm sure it was just a misunderstanding and we apologize.

We usually go there at least once a month. this time I was disappointed on the bill. We ordered DB's Vodka martini's - a big sign on front door says DB's Vodka MARTINI Rocks, Mix, $6, yet when bill came we were charged $10 for each. we paid the bill thinking we must have misread the poster. But the food and service are great and we will go back as usual.

We enjoyed our meal, everything was very tasty. The restaurant was very busy so pretty noisy. Our waiter was very friendly and efficient. Will definitely be back again. They had a female singer who sang throughout the whole meal.
Unfortunately could not really hear because of the noise level of diners.

Our waitress was very good think her name is Cher. Very attentive and I ordered something off the specials because of her recommendation. Pork tenderloins carmelized onions in cream sherry sauce. Delish. Was our first time there and the experience was great.

Our server was the bartender, Mary, and she was fun, attentive and overall just great. The Osso bucco, aka pork shank, was tasty and delicious and cooked perfectly. The pork fell off the bone without a knife. The lobster ravioli and caprese salad were made similarly well. We enjoyed the Friday night live music. You really need a reservation here as the place is busy. Enjoy!

We went to Di Bennederto’s to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I was looking for a new place to go close to home and found it on the internet. Wow we’re we extraordinarily happy with finding such a great restaurant without any recommendations or previous experience here. We walked in the door and were greeted by the owner. He was very nice and welcoming and wished us a Happy Anniversary right away. Our server came to the table soon after we were seated and he too was very kind and polite. He helped us with the menu choices and went out of his way to provide a special soup for our special needs daughter. Our food was delicious. I had the special, orange roughy with a potato encrusted breading. Delicious!! Husband had chicken Parmesan which he orders often at restaurants and said this dish was one of the best he ever tasted. They treated us to limoncello liquors and desert. Wonderful experience all around. Have already recommended it to friends. We will be back!!!

We are fairly regular customers of Dive retro's, it is by far the best Italian restaurant around. We have never had a bad meal and if want a deviation from the menu it is never a problem.
