It draws you in. Cosy, quaint, family-owned Italian - you think. From the Toscane décor and the smile and handshake of the Italian grandfather who greets you; we entered full of hope. However, that hope switfly died, as we were served cardboard crunch garlic-flavored bread. Things worsened as we started eating our spaghetti and canelloni. The spaghetti swam in a... More

Been here several times now. Great little Italian restaurant. Very homely, family run Italian restaurant. Food is excellent as is the atmosphere, if you like a 'family type restaurant'. Value is good too. Seats are a little tight but it is well worth it. Not a 'posh' restaurant just great food, friendly service and good value. Well worth a visit... More

Benito is ten years older (and he was off this evening, nursing a cold we were told), the menu has evolved slightly, the wine list changed slightly, the kitchen is its same consistent self year in and year out, and they still have to pull a...

Sometimes it is nice if things change but on other occasions you want things to be familiar and how you remember them. So it was with Benitos. The same delicious food , friendly service and reasonable prices. I love this place and... More

Small Italian restaurant, feels like a typical Italian family restaurant. Food is nice, served quickly and good value for the money.

Called in late on a Friday evening for a meal with my wife and children. The restaurant was very busy with a mixture of clientele including some Italian families. We were provided with a small table near the stairs for the toilets at the rear of the establishment. The place is basic but somewhat homely in appearance. There was a... More

First ate at this restaurant around New year 2011 and returned last night as the experience was one we enjoyed. Had a smashing meal that was cooked well, brilliant and friendly service and the place was packed which is a good clue as to the quality of the place. Top notch.
