The outside of this restaurant is not attractive, which made us tempted to go across the street to another place. The layout inside is unusual; it's one long room broken into three rooms, so to get to the farthest room you have to walk through the other two. They were not very busy. The menu has the typical choices in... More

Brought a bus trip of 22 people in on a Friday night. We made reservations well in advance. We were seated right away, they handled the separate checks very well. Food is Fabulous! I found this place last year and had to come back again. Portions are big, get a Lot for your money. Would love to have more bread... More

Driving up to this place is off-putting. For example, weeds in the yard, potholes in the pavement, paint chipping off the door frame, and a dirty foyer that hasn't been cleaned in months (or years!). On entering, the dining room and bar areas have dirty floors and the bar top was sticky. The Fix: The owner needs to close down... More

Me and my girlfriend stumbled upon Bennucci's one Valentine's Day a few years back and I'm glad. The food is great I have had the Chicken Florentine, BBQ Ribs, & I always order the Beer Battered Shrimp all of it has been delicious. I recently discovered the Tiramisu and it's the best version I have ever had good enough for... More

Bennucci's is one of my favorite restaurants in Kalamazoo. My family orders the same thing every time: deep dish pizza with six toppings of our choice. This little gem is about $22 and can feed 2-3 adults for two meals. The secret is to call in your order about an hour before you want to eat. You then carry out... More

We at Bennucci's on Friday Oct. 11 with a party of about 30....a college hockey team, coaches, & some parents. The coach set up us being there weeks before hand so they would be prepared. We got there at 5:00 and were sat right away. The waitress did a great job of keeping all the orders straight (with about 25... More

Despite the very Italian sounding name, Bennucci's is more of a typical bar experience than Italian restaurant. I have eaten there two times, and the food is acceptable but nothing about the experience compels me to go back. There are no windows so its very dark inside, and the menu includes numerous sandwich items and entrees. Nothing wrong just not... More

We were there when an event going on in the area, so it was crowed and very, very loud. The food was average. The restaurant bills itself as Italian, but I would not recommend it as such. Not a lot of traditional Italian items on the menu. The meat lasagna was dry..not enough sauce and not much meat. The steak... More

Our main reason for trying Bennucci's Restaurant was that it is located in the building of the former Cork & Cleaver, which we had enjoyed during past visits to Kalamazoo. Of course we were not expecting a duplicate of "the Cork" but couldn't help making comparisons: The interior of this eatery was not as attractive and cozy. The front of... More

i have never sat in to eat here but the food is fabulous! I used to stay across the street for business and I would look forward to the stay just for some Chicken Alfredo at Bennuci's! If you are staying at a hotel nearby you get 10% off plus they deliver. Skip Olive Garden and go here!
