Our family-owned Italian restaurant, located in the Forest View Shopping Center, in Hoffman Estates, is just minutes away from Woodfield Mall and several hotels. It’s an ideal location for lunch, dinner, a social gathering, or meeting.

The restaurant is also known to honor customer requests for off-menu dishes, provided the necessary ingredients are on hand.
Enjoy live music and dancing Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights.
An additional private dining room is available for about 50 guests.
If you read our historical reviews you will see that we really like this establishment, understatement ! As usual everything from the "greeting" (by name) to the "goodbye" was excellent ! Really good Italian food and service in between those 2 :-)
Great food and wonderful service.
Prices didn’t match service.
If you read the reviews you will find that this is obviously our favourite restaurant. Everything is great from being greeted through to having paid the bill, being bid farewell and leaving :-) The food quality is excellent and the specials are often very special, as are the standard menu items :-) No worries, we'll be going back again soon :-)
Vittorio, Kathy and their team always provide excellent service and welcome you into their "home". We've been there dozens of times and have NEVER been disappointed. We enjoy the entertainment as well as the Italian specialty dishes featured on the menu. Additionally, the wine selection is always top notch. Go there, you will Love it!
Food is always great and the service was wonderful
We enjoyed the food & atmosphere. We were celebrating a birthday & were happy we chose to celebrate at De Benedettos.
We and another couple ate here for the first time on Saturday night. Two of us had the fettuccine Alfredo, I added shrimp to mine and it was so good! My husband who is very particular enjoyed the seafood diavolo and our friend really liked the veal Marsala.
We dined here for my daughter's birthday. Since it was Halloween and a snow storm, it was dead. But the service was PAINFULLY slow. Our server took forever for everything. She kept disappearing. My daughter and I sent our glasses of wine back because they tasted bad. The server said we could have a different brand by the bottle for $32. That same bottle at the grocery store is at most $14.99. That's a ridiculous mark up. The food was good. I do like there pappardelle pasta is delicious. But I'm disappointed that the spinach wasn't fresh. It tasted like frozen. A true Italian restaurant tosses the fresh spinach in at the end so it just lightly cooks. Everyone in our party seemed content with their dinner but frustrated that we spent so much time there on a school/work night when they weren't even busy.
Thank you for coming out on a snowing night! Our servers do the best to provide you the space to enjoy your dining experience while not rushing you. The wine choice selected was Moscato which we serve as a non sparkling version, which is more popular with Americans. Your preference was for a sparkling Moscato which we only serve by the bottle and cost us much more than any grocery store pricing. Additionally, our spinach is fresh and prepped to order along with all of our vegetables! Grazie
I had made reservations though Open table and also called to request a table by the entertainment. Management made sure we have a table up in front. We enjoyed our food. The service was great. Also your weekend entertainment was wonderful. Sam Magdal is a great entertainer. We have also seen Diva Montell who is wonderful as well. We plan on coming back! Great food and great singers!!
Karla - Glad you enjoyed the evening! Please let us know any special requests to accommodate future visits!
Warm and friendly atmosphere, Great service,very good food (just short of great) Overall a very enjoyable experience.

One of our favorite places for dinner. Always a great meal and service.
A great neighborhood place!
As usual great food, great service and reasonable prices. What more could you want ?
Our waiter was fantastic and the food was delicious as was the wine the waiter suggested.
All was wonderful dining. We we’ll go back frequently.
Outstanding service, great food, and great friends, what more can you ask for. Thank you, see you again soon.
Seafood diavolo is perfecto! Harry’s bar is unbelievable. Just tried the stuff mushrooms and those were out of this world.

Always a pleasure seeing you! See you again soon! Thank you!!!!
Love the great food. Could spend hours there enjoying food
Thank you! Hope to see you again soon!
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.
The entertainment was wonderful; the food, Ok (2 at out table did not eat their meals); the server was very pleasant but, I think, overwhelmed...
Everything was great as usual 😀
One of the best places I have been to. The owners and staff are wonderful. The live music is outstanding.
I would highly recommend Di Bennedetto's
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.
Outstanding homemade pasta and sauces. Service a little less well done, but a good place overall.
Excellent food. We had 4 different dishes and we all agreed they were each one of the best we had tasted. Well worth a visit!
Restaurant was excellent, great food and service. Our waitress was great, very helpful in recommending dishes. Believe her name was Cher.
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.
Amazing food. Prompt, courteous and attentive service.
Thank you - we do our best to make sure everything is perfect! Hope to see you again soon!
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.
Always a great meal. We love this place.
As always everything about the restaurant was excellent 😁
Delicious food, fabulous live entertainment, great owners. They make you feel like family.
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.
My guests and I had an enjoyable experience. Thank you.
We enjoy going to Di. Benedetto trattoria. Our choices this time were not to our liking. We always have nice service and will continue to dine there.
Great food! Vittorio always welcoming!
