Went here for my cousin's birthday - food was great! The decor and ambience is very old school Italian - dark and quiet, definitely not trendy. The food was delicious. A great place to sit and talk over a long meal. I loved the mushroom tortiloni. Also liked that they had a lot of gluten-free pasta options. Also liked that... More

My husband and I went to Benny's for the first time last night. The food was fabulous, the wait staff couldn't be more attentive. The place is classically decorated, with Old World Charm. I had the eggplant ala Benny. It was wonderful. Very unique. My husband had the duck special. We both enjoyed our dinning experience very much. Will definitely... More

Went to Benny's for their Long Island Restaurant week special. 3 courses $27.95. Most restaurants use this week to showcase the food and quality. I had the mussels/clam appetizer, my wife the ceasar salad; I had pork loin scallopini stuffed with mozzarella and mushroom sauce, my wife chicken franchese and we finished with banana bread pudding with caramel sauce. Ceasar... More

A friend had recommended Benny's, so we decided to give it a try. It was a very slow weeknight and so we received excellent service. The food was fine--better than the average Italian for sure. The two of us had an appetizer each and a pasta, all of which were tasty. But, $80 was a bit steep for that, we... More

Wife and I went to try during Long Island Restaurant week. We had been wanting to try this restaurant. We found the food to be only okay and expensive compared to other good Italian restaurants on the north shore. The drinks and wine were also expensive. We are glad we tried, but probably will not be returning

We have been coming to this restaurant for years and it has always been wonderful. The service is very good, Claudio usually greats you personally to seat you. We particularly like their zucchini blossom appetizer ( in season ) and any of their scrumptious veal dishes. They aim to please so ask for what you would like even if different... More

We were given a gift certificate to Benny's restaurant and when we called for reservations were told you could not use it for restaurant week. There is no indication, stipulation on the gift certificate. The gentleman who answered the phone clearly said it is on the "restaurant week menu. " The gentleman would not give me his name.

Old school Italian classic. The decor is dated, but the menu is excellent as is the food. Benny will stop by your table to bend your ear for as long as you like. You can actually have a conversation without shouting. The veal valdostana was excellent and the eggplant rolletini with cappelini was outstanding. Now, if only the patrons would... More

A very classy restaurant where a table of 4 can perfectly hear each other while enjoying the excellent food and the knowledgeable waiters. The special eggplant appetizer is so light and delicious it's hard to imagine your are eating pasta. Along with some ricotta cheese, it fills a thin lightly fried slice of eggplant. The fired calamari is also flash... More
