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!

This is one of those places with way too many items on the menu, and most items feature way too many ingredients. Settling on basic items like a Reuben, a steak and a burger, each of us in our party of three was disappointed in the food. I was quite hungry and couldn't even eat half of the Reuben, it... More

This place is the "Cheers" of Kalamazoo. It is a friendly, home town place. The food is all homemade and great.

I was staying near by for the night and read all the reviews for a fair chance at good dinner. Ambiance is lacking. I suggest not sitting close to the bar, the crowd was loud. Looked like a regular watering hole for older crowd. Service was slow. They could have used one more waitress. I asked for how the chicken... More

We loved this place! Spent 2 nights in Kalamazoo for a lacrosse tournament. The atmosphere is great. They had an acoustic musician playing during dinner. My son loved the ribs. We liked it so much that we ordered a pizza the second night and took it back to the hotel.
