We ate here one evening on our short break to London and I must say we both really enjoyed it. We were welcomed into the restaurant by the friendliest Italian gent who was so welcoming and found us a seat quickly. The decor inside is cute. We ordered drinks and food and were not disappointed, bf had steak with pepper... More

This place is great for a cheap fun meal out. The staff are friendly and funny and I always have a lovely time in there. The food isn't the best italian I've had but the place has a great charm which keeps us coming back.

An authentic Italian Restaurant with nice pasta dishes (there isn't any pizza) and limited menu. Although I suggest for a romantic dinner.

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

I first visited Bistro Benito almost ten years ago. Nothing has changed at all. 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...

We have visited Benitos quite a few times over the years but had not been back for sometime. 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
