We visited on a Sunday afternoon and found THE BEST gluten free pizza ever. To my surprise I ordered the BEST calamari in the world I have travelled in over 90 countries and have not found better It was good service and a pleasant atmosphere

We had enjoyed a day exploring Boston and wanted to eat in the North End. We looked in lots of restaurants before deciding on this one. We are great fans of Italian pizza so were really looking forward to it. We waited a very very long time for our food. I could have understood this if the place was busy... More

Their pizza here is to die for! We love dining here when we visit Boston. Service was great and fast, despite how busy they were. The only down side is we had to wait for a table which was no problem, except that it is so small we had to wait outside. There was plenty of room at the bar... More

I really enjoyed eating here. We went on a Monday night and the place was packed! My group ended up being seated in the very back where they take the dishes (they make use of every inch!) which was a little weird at first but we got over it. Even though we were in the way back, the service was... More

Delightful North End restaurant. Benevento's has both charm and wonderful food. The brick oven pizzas were delicious, as were the fig salad and the Ceasar salad. It is a good idea to make a reservation. It is extra special when you can tour the North End with a local Bostonian who lives right down the street.

The lady next to us ordered... More

Pizza? Yes. But also amazing pasta choices including gluten free options on everything. Staff was great also. The only reason it is not a '5' is because the reservation/wait was less than optimal.

We wanted Italian food in the North End. We chose this restaurant based on the Gluten Free advertising they do and the reviews of the good food. We did not have reservations and it was Saturday night so we knew we'd have to wait. We were told 45 minutes-1 hour. As we waited (over an hour) by the door, we... More

We had a nice Sunday evening meal at Benevento's. We arrived about 6:45 and were seated right away at a table near the front window. The tables are pretty close together but it makes for a nice homey atmosphere. Our waitress was very friendly and answered all our questions about the menu. My husband had the chicken special which he... More
