Benvenuto's has fantastic food and atmosphere. The service was wonderful and the menu options expansive. Great for couples, families, friends, business meetings, etc. Nice wine selection, too.

You can always count on Benvenuto's providing excellent food, in a nice environment at a fair price. We find the pizza and the pasta dishes to be very good as well as filling. They have a good selections of beverages. All in all, a nice restaurant offering a good value with good service.

We were in Madison just before New Year's and decided to take our group of 5, including 1 child, out for dinner, 6:30 pm on a Tuesday evening. So glad that we choose this place. Atmosphere was clean and inviting, both in entryway and dining areas. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable and accommodating to our many requests. She had a... More

I have seen their commercials on TV and thought that I would give it a try. I sat at the bar and the bartender approached me right away and I told her that it was my first time in. I asked for the specials and for a menu; she provided both. I ordered a drink which is a good value;... More

Super friendly service and OUTSTANDING food. You can't beat it. The Lasagna is my personal favorite. This is a quality place with atmosphere, friendly service, and incredible tasting Italian food. In the past, I've called ahead for carry-outs and it is always ready on time. We've been to other locations and this one is the number ONE tops. I'd give... More

First, this restaurant is gorgeous. It is tucked away at the back of the Holiday Inn, and from the outside is nothing special, but inside is amazing. I had gluten-free bruscetta chicken with balsamic sauce over gf fusilli pasta and it was to die for. Everyone adored their food and raved about it all weekend. Service was excellent. I highly...

Benvenuto's Northport - near Dane County airport and across from popular Warner Park. Nina was our server this early afternoon, and she was prompt and efficient. "She" enjoyed her favorite - Shrimp Tetrazzini with a glass of Chianti - delicious as always. I tried the evening special, Cajun Shrimp fettuccine - very good - shrimp was prepared to perfection.

This is a small chain that provides a good meal at a reasonable price. Our dinner was good even though the tuna was a bit more cooked than I liked and my wifes veal parm was not very crispy. Tuesday night is half price bottle wine night which was great. Had a real nice bottle of wine at a good... More
