Disappointing

After Resturant impossible did a story I thought I would try it. The salad came over chilled and wilted. the lazagna bottom layer was under cooked. The sauce on the chicken was good. If you want pizza and arcade I guess this is the place. For Italian food, it is not here.

We ate here on a Sunday afternoon. There was only one other family dining while we were there. We ordered side salads and a margherita pizza. The salad was nothing more than big chucks of iceberg lettuce - nothing else - no tomatoes, onions or croutons. The "house" Italian dressing I ordered on the side was not served as such.... More

I dined at Bene on a recent slow Sunday afternoon after recently seeing "Restaurant Impossible". When the food came out I started to wonder if he actually came or not. We decided to try a little bit of everything to give the restaurant a fair asessment. The pizza reminded me of a Tombstone Pizza you get from the store. It... More

We loved the pizza! It WAS the best pizza in Omaha! THEN Restaurant Impossible came and changed it and we are so sad it is not for the better. At least as far as the pizza is concerned... Neat environment, the rest of the food looked great but we went there for the pizza. The arcade was icing on the... More

The kind of place kids dream about and adults salivate over. Have come to this restaurant several times in the last year -- the pinball machines are the most current and most importantly, they work and are reasonably priced 50 cents). Have also enjoyed the cheese bread and the fried ravioli. Each were good, not great - however each was... More

Ignore the pinball NERDS. The food is fresh and amazing and we make sure to stop every time we are back in town. Try the Siciiian! no other pizza like it.

Went with a large group and we enjoyed the pizza. Don't know about any of the other items, other than the beer, which was cold. Service was quick, and the kids seemed to enjoy the arcade. Prices were very reasonable

If you love Pinball and 80's style arcades, by all means Bene is the place to go. With buttons that don't stick, and joysticks that are responsive, the games are a nice throwback to my childhood. That said, this isn't primarily an arcade, it's a pizza place. Unfortunately, the pizza does not stand up on it's own. There are better... More

I'm a huge arcade/pinballer, loved that part of Bene's. Machines are oversensitive with the tilt, but anyone with pinball experience can get around that. Sad sad "Italian" food, extremely generic, pasta was watery, sub-par sauce, meatballs oh man. Really wish the food was more homemade, if they try to stay away from frozen the food could be outstanding. The service... More
