Had a group meal here.. there were seven of us and each had different dishes. The food was served at the same time hot, tasty and quite efficient. Would go again as it was so nice, friendly and diners were really looked after.

I've been going to this place off and on for about 10 years. I fell in love with it on my first visit and I try and visit whenever I'm in London. From the outside, it is unprepossessing. It's a small palce on teh Ear's Court Road and it doesn't look grand or posh. To be honest it looks a... More

What a great little place. Authentic and welcoming, we had a great evening with friends in a relaxed atmosphere and were well looked after. The food was excellent - straightforward and un fussy, and really good value. The staff looked after the dietary requirements (coeliac and therefore gluten free) perfectly. Glad we found this little place - a real find.

We had passed this on our way past and took note. Returning later to an empty restaurant, it was early and the staff seemed to be an Italian family. Food was excellent and very traditional. When I asked which lagers they had of course it was Peroni, what else.

So pleased we found this place whilst strolling back to Best Western Burns Hotel. Yes, it is quite tightly packed but even though they had a party on, the service was excellent. No stressing even on a busy Saturday evening & they still found time to have a chat with all their customers. Food was lovely, very reasonably priced for... More

Had dinner here on a Saturday. The restaurant was fully booked. The tables are very close to each other so its difficult to have a private conversation. The food was wonderful, freshly made and tasted of Italy. I will definitely be back here the next time I am in London.

This is a very homely family run business, a genuine Italian bistro. The staff were all very warm and friendly and welcoming. The food was great good value for money and good size portions also. I would highly recommend Bistro Benito to anyone who wants a decent meal in a great place on the Earls Court Road.

Overall a lovely dining experience except for being just a little bit cramped but food was delicious and proper Italian atmosphere - more staff than they know what to do with but good in another way

I love Italy and their cuisine, so when I read on TA that Benito's is like a little piece of Italy transported into London I had to go and check :) I was staying at Best Western Burns in Earls Court, the hotel is nice but only really does breakfasts, so I had to look elsewhere for dinner.
