“Délicieux et honnête”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

Les pâtes étaient al dente avec délicieux concassé de tomate, une escalope de poulet juste à point et un bon verre de vin rouge. Le serveur était souriant et conviviale avec Sinatra en background. Simple et bien fait. On y retourne dès qu'on remet le pied à NY.

Bravo,
S & G de Montréal

“The BEST Italian food I've ever eaten. Period.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

We stumbled upon this place while in NYC last week. We were craving Italian and we walked up, were greeted by a super friendly man and decided to eat there! The food was superior-100% made from scratch and every bit amazing!! The restaurant was so cute and the service was fantastic-it made us feel like we were actually in Italy! Go here. You will NOT be disappointed!

“Run away and,fast!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012 via mobile

The waiter promised us the best italian in New York......The stuffed mushrooms were bland, the meals very average. The music was either Tina Turner or none at all. It was Nye and we were asked to leave at 7.15 before we had finished our wine. We were disappointed with the entire experience.

“Overpriced and Overcooked”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011

I went to Benito II last night (December 14, 2011) and was very unimpressed. The waiters kept trying to upsell us, and the food was WAY overpriced. We ordered chicken in wine sauce which was overcooked and dry. One appetizer, prochuitto and melon (supposed to be a delicate finery) was given to us simply as a big slice of melon with a piece of prosciutto thrown on top. None of the dishes we had were really that good at all.

Don't go here - it's just not good.

“Charming and authentic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

It was the perfect slowdown to a hectic weekend. Delicious, charming and authentic. The staff was attentive, friendly and helpful. Had a simple meal of caprese salad and pasta that was just divine.
