I was in Kalamazoo on business and staying at a nearby hotel. Since I love Italian food, I decided to check out Bennucci's rather than eating at the hotel restaurant. It was pouring down rain and I'd been driving for hours, so it would have been easier to just stay in. When I walked in there was a man leading... More

My wife and I met up with some family members and we'd decided to give Bennucci's a chance. From the outside the place looked deserted and even closed as there was only one car in the parking lot. The grounds are rock covered with weeds and we actually had to open the door to realize that the place was even... More

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
