Stumbled onto Bensi while on business and enjoyed the simple, yet comfortable restaurant and cuisine. Service was warm and helpful while the food all homemade and prepared to order. A great lunch.

We have never had a bad meal at Bensi. Their portions are generous and always delicious. We love their chicken francaise and eggplant reggiano. Salads are great as well.

We go there for their eggplant dish and good pizza. The eggplant consists of very thin layers with sauce in between each layer with basil on top, Don't know the name of this dish but it is yummy.

Had a great lunch with an old friend. Very delicious food, good portions. Prices are not cheap, but food was very tasty. Worth the trip. I would recommend them.

In an area with some terrific Italian food, Bensi simply doesn't stand out. Not that it's bad - it is not! Just that there are so many better options Drive another 5-10 minutes and you can get a really nice meal
