I like the lunch combos, which include an entree with your choice of soup or salad. Try the lasagne. It's meaty, cheesy & saucy...just as good as the lasagne I make at home (but without all the work).

Great Italian food, nice size portions with extra to go home. The best in house made Tiramisu. Would go back to try other menu items. Before dinner drinks were excellent!

A two-location Italo-American bistro with spots in the eastern and western suburbs of Rochester, the Pittsford Benucci's offers good, if predictable, red-sauce entrees, pasta and pizza. Wine-list favors Italian DOC labels. Room is suburban chic, in a funky outdoor shopping centre (Trader Joe's! Barnes & Noble!) in a pleasant suburb. Nice little neighborhood cineplex is right next door, making it easy to plan a no-stress evening out, with a Cold Stone Creamery next to the movie house, to end the night. Summer evenings don't ever really get much better -- although, to be completely honest, there are better Italian restaurants not far away.

I went to Benucci's last weekend to catch up with friend's. We enjoyed the outside seating. Food selection was good. I went there years ago, but don't remember it being as good as it was last weekend. I plan to go again. Food tasted good, good portion size and decent service.

My wife and I were doing some shopping in the area and decided to stop at Benucci's for a late lunch. This place is tucked away in the corner of a very busy shopping plaza.

Walking up to the restaurant we noticed how nice it was set up with nice clean sidewalk table seating, when we walked in a found a very clean and welcoming restaurant and very friendly and helpful staff.

We ordered our lunch, then came out the warm bread and soft butter which is a very nice part of the meal, (I would return just for the warm bread an soft butter). Within minutes after recieving the bread out came our lunch, hot and tasty just the way we like it.

Both my wife and I would strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants good food, because good food is what they know how to give.
