We had dinner there on Christmas day. Our waitress took our orders, then disappeared for at least 45 minutes... we had to ask another waitress for water refills and a second bottle of wine to tide us over until the food came. It is unfortunate the service (or lack thereof) put such a damper on the excellent food served at... More

Delicious meal for a special Birthday. I had a wonderful Salmon dish and my wife's Lamb Shank was even more outstanding! Happy smiles all around.

We booked Chez Benito for an italian pre half marathon carb loading dinner and an evening with friends we haven't seen for a long time. What a fantastic ambiance! We were happy to discover that this is a place where you don't need to be in a hurry - where the owner, and the person entertaining take the time to... More

The service was slow and unattentive, we felt a tension between the waitres and us and it sort of soiled thge evening. The food was ordinary and overly priced.

In retrospect, we should not have waited at the outset. After the initial wait for the server to come to the table, we then waited excessively long times for water, then wine, then salad, then main. Won't do that again!

My girlfriend liked her pasta gigi, but I found the food to be subpar. The service was excessively long and the waiter was rude. Never going back.

The restaurant itself is cozy and charming,however it was understaffed. The chef was filling in as a waiter. The pasta puttanesca was terrible and the veal didn't remotely taste like veal . Was explained that it was baby veal, however the sauce was much to heavy for this dish. Overall very disappointed. We also waited a very long time for... More

Went there with a friend and it was the Lobster festival. We each had a lobster and it was accompanied with a baked potato and ceasar salad. The food was great and really good service.

We drive from Vermont to dine here and the food is delicious, the prices reasonable and they have live entertainment on the weekends. The owner and staff are very pleasant and accommodating. Great find.

We discovered this place as we drove thru town. The garlic bread was excellent w/lots of garlic. I had chicken w/lemon & capers while my husband tried his favorite, veal marsala. Both the chicken and veal were tender, tasty. We had asked for linguine as the pasta but got spaghetti instead. The waitress apologized but we were hungry so we... More
