My wife and I go there a few times a month; especially for lunch. In addition to all of the great Italian dishes, they also feature a Buffet daily. Italian music in the background sets the mood. They offer Italian Garlic bread and salad with their House dressing. (My favorite) We order the same meal almost every time. My wife... More

My husband and I dined with my sister who lives in the area. We ordered pizza and a pasta dish. Both were very delicious and large portions. I particularly fell in love with the pizza. The crust was perfection in my book. We sat at the bar and the bartender took our orders. Service was second to none. Looking forward... More

We wanted something that was not the usual chain restaurant- and we found this place. We always do a quick check of reviews before we go, and the reviews were 3-4 stars on Yelp, which was not exciting, but not bad so we went in. It is a small place with a small buffet in the very back corner. Even... More

We needed to eat before our movie time so we pulled into the strip mall next to the theater. Benito's was in front of us so we decided to give it a try. The portions are huge! We split an appetizer and the main dish of eggplant Parmesan. We are glad that we did. We still brought half of our... More

Went to Benito's based on a friends recommendation. The service and quality of the food was very good. The cesar salads were quite good, as were the hot garlic rolls. I tried the veal marsala which was served with a side of angel hair pasta. It was absolutely delicious. My husband also enjoyed the "left overs" - the portion sizes... More

Happenen in after the Movies -which is in the next parking lot. A little hard to see from the road. The dinner included salad which was very good. The sauce-red- was really nice and made everything taste wonderful. Very clean with very pleasant wait staff /mostly women. Bread was delish too,

Restaurant is located in a strip mall next to the movie theater. Wanted something other than fast food but nothing that would take too long. We saw this restaurant and I read the reviews. We gave it a try and was not disappointed. Food was very good but not outstanding. We will be back. Don't hesitate to give it a... More

Atmosphere is pleasing. Server, Rona was excellent. Attentive, but not hovering. The food is plentiful, appealing to the eyes and tasty. Price is moderate......meal for two with 1 wine and 1 mixed drink under 40$. I had chicken Marsala and my husband chicken parmigiana. We were both very happy. The portion size was so large we will both get a... More
