“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

We ate here late after the FL/GA football game. All of us had excellent meals. Nice restaurant in a small strip mall. Our waitress was sweet. The garlic rolls good & salads were nice. We will return

“Comfort Food on Friday the 13th”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

Benito's is the perfect place for a warm plate of Italian comfort food. First, we love all the soups but especially the Italian wedding soup. Sometimes when I'm not feeling well, all I can think of is Benito's delicious Italian wedding soup. The salads are fresh and plentiful; our favorite is the Caesar salad. The bread is the bomb -- so, so good and hot, and they'll refill your basket as soon as you ask. Our favorite pasta dish is the spaghetti carbonara, and the tortellini is excellent. The chicken francese or chicken alla rosa are delicious especially served over freshly made fettucini. My husband loves the eggplant rollatini...a combonation of eggplant parmagianna and eggplant cordon bleu. The Benitos combo includes canneloni, manicotti and chicken parm...all delightful and light. Benito's is located adjacent to Regal Cinemas near the Avenues Mall...so it's a great place for a meal before a movie -- do tell your server you are going to catch a film. The servers are personable, efficient and friendly. We love Rona and Greta, but all are great. Tony is behind the bar and fills take-out orders, and Benny is personable stopping at tables to make sure everything is going well. We cannot recommend this eatery more highly. We are regulars and love this food. Disregard any of the negative reviews here and give Benito's a try. You won't regret it.

“Great Food at Great Prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2012

I often stop on my way home to pick up a few pizzas. The food is great, the prices are better than the chains and the service is quick and friendly!

“Good food, good value and good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

Good Italian food in a relaxed setting. Their portions are always enough to take home for a second meal. We have been there a half-dozen times and have never been disappointed. Not much atmosphere but friendly service, quality, quantity and pricing of the food make it a good bet. Good for couples or families. I have never been there at lunch but they apparently have a booming business then.
