“Monstrous slices. Surprisingly good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

When I first heard about the giant (30 inch, I think) pizzas at Benny Marconi I figured it was more of a gimmick than anything else. I was pleasantly surprised when we dove into the pie. This is pretty good pizza. Probably not quite on my short list of "go to" pizza joints, but pretty darn good. The prices are pretty reasonable when you consider the size of the pie.

The first time we ordered from there, I sent my son to pick it up and he almost could not fit the box in his car. So, if you do plan on getting take out from Benny Marconi make sure you have room to haul it. The ingredients tasted fresh and the crust is on the thin side if that is your thing (we like that!).

We have gotten pizza there a couple more times and will do so again.

“Thanks a bunch”

Helped me out by getting an amazing pizza ready for a long time friend today. The pizza was good and everyone was blown away when I pulled it out of the car and opened the box. You guys are awesome.

“Good location, excellent pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

This is a great place to visit when you are walking around downtown or after going to the club. Downside is the parking to get there, but when you enter.. that's it!

Slices of pizza take up 2 paper plates.. they have about 4 types of pizza to chose from & a vast selction of drinks to accompany. Love the buttery crust & cheesiness. You can either get a slice or a whole jumbo-tron size pizza that won't fit in your backseat. Our advice is to drive a truck to carry that mammoth! Tell your people to try this out, but remember space is limited. Seating for about 20.

“Big slice, so-so flavor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The only selling point here is the size of the slice. If you want truly superb pizza, go to New York Pizza in Vinton. Pizza straight from Italy, customers lined up out the door.

“The best pasta in Roanoke”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

If you like a wide variety of pasta at a reasonable price with excellent service go to Benny's in Roanoke. Everything from bread through pasta to the wonderful crepe desserts we had were tops. All pasta is homemade and each guest is shown a sample tray of the selections to make a choice.
