My wife and I had dinner here and had a mixed experience. Her had the linguini with clams and enjoyed it. I ordered the Spaghetti Bolognese and the pasta was over cooked and the sauce wasn't even close to a bolognese. So one good experience and one completely failed experience.

My family visited this restaurant after reading a positive review in the Sacramento Bee on 2/24/17. We took my father in law for his 89th birthday. He is Italian and has traveled in Italy a great deal. Based on the review in the Bee I ordered the large Margherita Pizza and upgraded to the buffalo moz. This was a mistake.... More

We've been trying to expand our list of local Italian restaurants and after reading a favorable review in the SacBee we decided to try Bene for the first time. For context let me say we approach every new restaurant with the expectation that we will love it and return again and again and do so with many of our favorites.... More

The pizza was excellent and was up to New York standards. They have several creative variations and each one that we tried was great.

Pizza was undercooked . Raw dough and cold. I ordered it to go and walked across the street to our hotel. I was angry because it was overpriced and the service was rude and pretentious the gross pizza went in trash. There are so many quality restaurants down town. Try ANY of them first!!!

With the holiday food frenzy over, today's delightful lunch at Pizza Bene with two dear friends put healthy eating back on the menu! We had salads that were fresh, crisp and colorful: Antipasto, Caprese and Italian Green, accompanied with fabulous bread and dipping oil. We ordered the local favorite,Boeger, and never looked at their full wine list. The draft beers... More

Took my son here for a special outing yesterday after him repeatedly imploring me to try their pizza. He's 12 but knows good pizza and had been there with a friend. His rave review was spot on. I had the pizza margherita and he had pepperoni. We also ordered a combination and Vesuvius calzone to take home for dinner. All... More

My second trip for pizza, not as good as the first (an off night?) The atmosphere is quiet and comfortable with outdoor seating for a bit of people watching...
