Unfortunately this Bensi location is closed. It is a shame the developers of the Shoppes at Hamilton did not solve traffic flow issues (access and egress) before bringing businesses into the property. There is now a traffic light allowing easier access for southbound traffic on Route 130 so hopefully amy existing and new businesses will have a chance to survive.

Like other shops in this ill-designed shopping center, it suffered from poor access and lack of advertising or exposure.

My wife and I ate at Bensi's off Rt 130 one Wednesday evening in December with a Groupon. The salad was the best part of the meal. The wine was inexpensive, however the entrees were just OK. My wife ordered eggplant and I ordered Veal, both just OK. The desert was just ok as well (chocolate cake). The place was... More

Especially for this area which has an abundance of Italian restaurants, Bensi was just average. The food was good but not great. The menu gas lots to choose from, all the usual items. The service was slow and the dreadful music playing loudly made dinner seem to drag on forever. Our calamari appetizer never came and then they tried to... More

The menu has too much stuff on it...maybe less would be more. The food was OK. Service was good.

We were a party of 30 in a separate room, celebrating an anniversary with dinner. Our only complaint was the sound level in the separate room which had all hard surfaces and no soft material to absorb sound. (The sound level in the main dining room is fine.) The food was excellent as was the service. The meal included warm,... More

My husband and I opted to go out for dinner after a difficult day at work. We only ordered drinks and appetizers, but that was all we needed to know we will definitely we return patrons! The half price appetizers were great and the bartender wasn’t chincy on the drinks. I can’t wait to go back for my birthday and... More
