Quaint family restorant, very clean and excellent service. I did not notice a kids menu, but the pasta, seafood and chicken dishes we ordered were great. Each meal comes with homemade soup or salad. We were too full for dessert but are going back to try some next summer.

We enjoy Ventcellos a couple of times yearly. We always try to remember why we don't come more often. The food is similiar to Palermo's (its sister restaurant nearby) which is closer to our place. But we are never disappointed. Both serve good servings of Italian staples. All details are covered. Good service, good bread, good soups, good salads, fresh seafood..... Parking on the street can require a short walk, but downtown Benicia is a nice safe place to walk around anyway.

Went for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. We both ordered off of the special menu. I had a seafood risotto and my wife had the chicken. Both were great and priced well. We will definitely be back. They could use some soft music for ambience.
