The food was excellent, however Open Table did not make it clear, and neither did the venue, that there would be a prix fixe menu for Valentine's Day (although I should have expected it). The price was $75 per person, which was very expensive for what we ate -- lasagna and rib eye steak. The food was delicious, but overpriced. I will definitely go there again, just not on a holiday where there is a prix fixe menu. I was expecting to spend $100 (not including cocktails), and I ended up spending $165, almost double.

My wife and I had an excellent dinner , the food is amazing and our waitress was attentive without being pushy. Homemade seafood pasta and sauce.
Pork chop was cooked perfectly.
The roasted Cauliflower was over the top.
Highly recommend this gem

Very friendly staff that was accommodating when I had to change the number in our party at the last minute. Our waitress was very informed about the menu and had suggestions for our gluten free friend. Fantastic crab ravioli special with butter sauce and citrus segments. It was a wonderful meal and a nice way to celebrate a birthday. The lemon chiffon cake was incredible.

This restaurant re-opened with one of the original owners and a new chef. We think this new chef is better than the previous one when it was Guiseppe's. The home made pastas are awesome. The bread is delicious, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside - but give me butter for my bread!! The veal scallopini was lemony (but not overpowering) and light. The cauliflower side was delicious and perfectly cooked. I hate mushy vegetables. Excellent Meal!!

We were unfortunately disappointed with our food though our waitress was attentive. The minestrone soup came out cold and my eggplant was stuffed with cubed, dried vegetables on top of curly pasta and a flavorless marinara sauce. I wish I could give high marks for the caesar salad but it was just lettuce tossed with a creamy dressing. The food lacked the comforts I remember from Salvatore but perhaps Benvenuti is still developing their menu. We might be back but it will be a long time...

After noticing this place driving by we came in and had the most delicious pastas and appetizers, along with outstanding service. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you want quality authentic Italian food that will leave you full with perfect sized portions. Also the wines by the glass and suggestions were perfect!
