If you want a quiet place to have a weekday lunch with a few friends, Benito’s offer the best service, menu items and ambience. My favorite is the chicken Francese, always fresh and tender. Salads are great and so is the bread. In warm weather...More

Enjoyed a very relaxing evening with great Italian food. The clams in white wine appetizer was delicious as was the fried calamari and asparagus with parmesan. The escarole bean soup is hearty and generously portioned. House salad is very good and lobster bisque as well....More
