Was there with a group of 10 tonight. Found out that they don't like to book large reservations after 5pm for large groups - especially on a Friday night - but Ben the owner made and exception and we are so GLAD he did. We...had not been there before, but the rest of the group ranted and raved so we joined them.
First the service was amazing! Our waitress (and I'm sorry I could not remember her name) was quick, interactive, responsive and our food arrived hot. Sometimes thing get lost with a large group.
Ordered the spaghetti and meatballs - and could NOT eat the whole dish, so asked to share with my sweetheart - was charged $4 for an additional plate. My spaghetti is way better, but I was satisfied. Had the cheesey bread too, and it was good, though it's not real sourdough French.
I recommend this place for good Italian food. It's not Italy - it's Placerville and for that it's pretty good.
Parking - save the trouble of driving around town for a spot on the street - go to the parking garage. Bene's is SHORT walk around the corner, and it's safe at night.
Looks like too you can sit out on a patio of sorts in the summer.
Staff is really very friendly, and great with kids - I witnessed some of the interactions with littles.More
