When in the North End of Boston, one will expect to wait. And this place is certainly worth the wait. John at the front door was very good at managing all who wished to enter. Jessica our waitress and her support, were right on it, for such a busy place. Now the food. Outstanding. Having been to Italy more times... More

We stumbled upon this welcoming, busy restaurant while meandering around the North End. We were attracted to it because of its welcoming name. The host told us that we needed a reservation, but he would try to find us a table anyway. After a short 5 minute wait, we were escorted to a table in the lower level of the... More

I cannot say enough good things about this place. We stumbled into this place our first night in Boston and it was so amazing we can back again before leaving. They even remember us from our first night. They are known for their pizza but I would go for the homemade, fresh pasta. Absolutely amazing!

We popped into Benevento's on a cold afternoon looking for a coffee - the waitress was so friendly and accommodating, and the espresso coffee so delicious that we decided to go back that evening for dinner. Being our first trip to Boston we were keen to try some lobster - Benevento's dishes did not disappoint, my husband had the lobster... More

Amazing pasta, wonderful staff, generous servings. A real gem in a city with over 100 restaurants to choose from. The chicken Benevento was beyond delicious.

Family & I (parents and 2 teens) dined this evening at Benevento's. It was a Friday evening and we had 6:30 reservations. Highly recommend this, as we heard there was an hour wait for a table and lots of people in the streets waiting on restaurants. Also, Benevento's is a quaint and cozy place - which is to say it's...

Being gluten intolerant, its hard to find an Italian restaurant to go to without problems. This place is amazing!! All their sauces are gluten free and the pasta was amazing as well. Our waitress was so nice and energetic and very attentive the whole time, they have a great menu with a wide variety to choose from. My friend chose... More

The food is always fresh and delicious at Benevento's. The Caprese salad is delicious, and the pumpkin ravioli with honey-butter sauce is a sweet treat. You can see them cooking in the kitchen, and the staff goes out of their way to meet your needs.

We had attempted to get into the restaurant next door, however our reservation was misplaced. A lovely local gent suggested we try this restaurant, as the food in his opinion was better. So glad we followed his advice! We asked the wonderful waitress to just have the cook make us dinner, which she obliged. We were over the moon with... More
