The food is out of this world.Very Italian.Small portions,but it's the way the Italians eat in Italy.Manager or owner comes around to see if everything is ok.Very expensive but well worth at least trying once.

Here's a story that is not to be believed! Took my uncle and aunt to Benito's in Union for their 57th anniversary. My uncle has been a customer there forever and when he worked, was there at least 4 days a week. Now retired, going there is an amazing treat. So, this past Saturday night, my aunt orders steak and... More

We stop here on our annual (or more often) trip from the Washington, DC area to Maine, exiting the Garden State Parkway at Galloping Hill Road, to be practically right at the driveway to the restaurant. It is extremely convenient, and when coupled with good food and the very attentive service, the experience is both highly practical and enjoyable. My... More

One of best Italian restaurant in NJ. You must try the home made ravioli very good. We've been going to da Benito for as long as I can remember. Beni is back in the kitchen and the food is fabulous. You won't be disappointed.

Fantastic dinning experience! If you have the opportunity to dine here, don't think twice. Menu and wine list alone are worth the visit. Excellent service, presentation, cuisine, all of it. You won't be disappointed!

Fantastic restaurant. We have been going here since they opened and probably only had 1 not so hot meal. That's a pretty good record! Appetizers are excellent. The hot chocolate cake desert is the best in the world. They will make anything you like...so don't worry if what you want isn't on the menu. The 5 cheese ravioli is to... More

All i can say if you are visiting from the country of Mexico you may think this is good Italian fare. Let me tell you, its is not! My meal of linguini and 'clams' was $26 and terrible. I could have had a better meal out of a can. The service from the waiter was terrible, a limited menu and... More

Called on 12/31/2012 at about 7pm to see if they had seats for dinner and was greeted by someone super nice. She said "SURE COME ON IN". I have always passed by the restaurant on my way to work but never imagined how nice and excellent the food and service was. As we entered we were greeted and coat check... More

I had dinner here recently with my husband and friends. The reviews pretty much live up to what they claim but there is something that I am not quite sure about this establishment. The food was quite good---good, but not outstanding. The wine is WAY overpriced as is in most cases when you order a bottle of wine at a... More
