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. A complete... More

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

Very good food. Lots on the menu, several specials. We had chicken dishes and pasta dishes. Eggplant with pasta was a special appetizer. Extremely good service. Private room surrounded by wine for a good business meeting. Owner very hands on.

We met family & friends here this past weekend. The dishes are traditional and reminiscent of my childhood. Everything was fresh and delicious, having a very home-like feel. The waite staff is friendly and efficient without being overbearing. If you are luck like we were, you might even get a chance to chat with Benny and hear some wonderful stories.

Visited Benny's on a Saturday night with a 5:30 reservation. Benny himself seated us. Everything about the evening was wonderful and we eat out 3 times a week. Service, Food and Drinks could not have been better. We live 30 miles east of Benny's and will be making the trip so we can try out more things. Great menu with... More
