Very overrated! My husband and I arrived on time for our 5:30PM reservation on New Year's eve. We were greeted by the hostess with "Can I help you" which was not a very warm welcome. The place was empty except maybe 4 tables one of which was a loud table of 4. So where do they seat us, but right next to the loud table of four. Not exactly a romantic dinner for two when we could not even hear each other speak. Service was okay as was the food, but not worth the price or the drive. Not a good first experience.

Turn off the TV pictures or position them so they only impact the bar area, and my experience here would be nearly perfect. This is true for so many restaurants I visit these days, and at least they had the volume turned down. But the classier the restaurant, and I'd put D's in that category the more a TV cheapens it for me.

Other than that, the food is great from quality to portions, the owner clearly shows he cares about his patrons, and the service is very good too. The atmosphere is a little 20's jazz club feel and there a nicely understated elegance to the decor.

It's tucked away a bit in strip mall, and other than that taking away a good outside seating option, that does not detract from the experience unless it keeps you away. Don't let it.

My friends and I celebrated an early Christmas and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Once the music/singing starts the noise level rises but at least we could still hear each other. Food was good and a little pricey but worth it.

Our table of four each ordered a different item and they were all incredible. Very generous sizes. The calamari appetizer was also very good. And they had a nice selection of wine. For dessert we tried the cannoli and tiramisu and both were delicious. All in all a five star night.

Took friends to Di Benedetto for their anniversary celebration. All our entrees' were very different and very good with everyone taking lots home. Seafood was very fresh and tasty as was the veal etc. Our server was attentive without being in our face. The wine selected for the evening was also very good.
There is live music during dinner which was lots of fun and entertaining. The volume made it difficult to hear conversations with our friends.
Would definitely come back.

 (Hawaii)·Dined on August 19, 2017

The service during our visit was outstanding. The wines that are "on special" are a great value. The food was uneven. The salmon special was great. The veal was just slightly dry. The melrose pepper appetizer was delicious.

Be forewarned that there is live music. Not sure the starting time but maybe around 7 on Saturday night. It is fun and some patrons dance. But it is not quiet. If you have a group, ask to be seated as far from the music as possible since it will be hard to hear conversation. If there is just a twosome or foursome, you should be fine.

Overall, this is a fun dining experience.

Amazing!!! Perfectly seasoned, perfectly sized portions and the stuffed mushroom appetizer is a must have. I wanted to re-order them for my entree. Di Benedetto's has become neighborhood go to place when we want Italian.

You'll often times find the owners / chef at the bar relaxing toward the end of the night. Both are very engaging, charming and show their appreciation for your business.

Just a train wreck from start to finish. Waited almost a hour for our appetizer only to find out it was sent to the wrong table. Our waiter then throws the owner under the bus saying it was his fault. My entree which was a pasta dish looked and tasted like a bowl of chili. So many choices out there for Italian food, needless to say this place will never again be one of them.

The Steak Diane was delicious, as was the rigatoni. The food is rustic, without being boring--well-presented, without being pretentious. The live music was outstanding, a very talented singer. Bus staff is large, and they hustle to keep diners in water, fresh bread, etc. The entire staff seems to have a positive attitude, evidence of management's culture of service.
Don't let the strip mall setting discourage you. This is a gem.

I've been searching for a restaurant that serves really great Eggplant Parmesan. I finally found it! And I had them hold the pasta, and give me a side of spinach at extra charge. This restaurant is now my "Go To" for Italian food. I am so happy!
