We were seated downstairs by the cleaning area. The bleach smell was so overpowering. The ambiance upstairs was beautiful, downstairs needs help. Food was excellent.

Delicious food - the specials were so tasty and the homemade pasta is worth the up charge. Salads were fresh and not over-dressed. I’d recommend a reservation because the line was out the door for people without one. (Totally worth it.)

The food was great. However, our party was sat thirty minutes late and told to wait outside in the freezing cold. No one ever apologized or said a word about it. We were crammed right in the front and the door kept opening blasting us with freezing cold air so we had to all keep our coats on.

Excellent restaurant..highly recommend. My daughter has Celiac..and when a staff member brought bread to our table..I said we did not want it. Literally within a minute the owner was at our table..asking if either of us needed GF (because we declined the bread). He carefully went over options with us for GF items (they have a ton) and he gave us a few options of bakery/breakfast places for the morning (we asked if they had any suggestions). Our server Diana was fantastic..and also very knowledgeable about GF, the menu and she was very attentive. The food was fabulous..both the GF and regular menu items. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Our server and service were excellent! Drinks, apps, and dinner came promptly. Everyone was happy with apps and meals; antipasto, eggplant rollatini, fig flatbread (special), pizza, lasagna, chicken parm, and veal parm. 😋

We had a fantastic dinner here! We securd an early reservation to beat the crowds. Annette was our server and I believe one of the owners. She took great care of us and the food was delish! She made the dipping oil for our bread and it was some of the best I have had. The limoncello at the end of the meal was a nice treat! We will be back.

Needed last minute reservation for 6. Benevento’s came through. Gave us private table down stairs. Food and service was awesome. Quality and quantity was how I would describe the food. Everyone ordered something different and everyone was pleased with what they had. You will definitely go home with leftovers. Service was awesome

Our adult children were in town for a visit so we took them and friends to Beneventos - our favorite restaurant. We were treated like royalty and everyone’s meals were prepared perfectly. Thank you!

Make reservations if going on the weekend, or be prepared to stand outside and wait. The good thing for those waiting, they keep the keep everything moving. We had 3 dishes, Eggplant Rollatini, Veal Saltimbocca and pasta with Carbonara sauce (and meatball ) . All were very tasty. There was a mixup on the pasta sauce and our waitress offered many times to redo the dish, but, it was a nice mixup.

Best Eggplant I have ever had. We went for my wife’s birthday. Everyone had a great meal. I recommend a weeknight. It is crowded on the weekends but never disappoints. We had a great waitress too.👍👍

Very good quality food for the price. Highly recommend the pasta carbonara and lobster ravioli. The eggplant parmigiana is one of my favorites. Waitress was very nice. I could have done without the loud country music which made it difficult to carry on a conversation.

We were a party of three visiting from out of town. Server was great, helpful, and informative about gluten free options. We shared the sautéed calamari for an appetizer. The bread brought to the table wasn’t anything great. I enjoyed the gluten free gnocchi with the vodka sauce and sausage. It was amazing! My husband had the fig salad and my son had a Quattro formaggio pizza. All was delicious!

We made a reservation and they had no room for us!!!!!!! WIll never come here again. Don't take walk ins when you have a reservation in place. For 30 minutes they told us they were getting our table ready which was a lie. They had no room for us and place us in the basement where the kitchen was and all our cups and forks were dirty!

It was nice, too noisy for my taste & my mother’s poor hearing. I’d asked for an acknowledgement of my mother’s birthday via some dessert option but out check was brought without even asking us if we wanted dessert. That was a bummer.
