“Everything you would expect from an Italian restaurant.”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Went for the first time May 2014. Could not have been more pleased with food, service, wine and ambience. Excellent choices of wine by the glass as well. Was restaurant week so can not comment on regular prices. Classic Italian restaurant with staff that appears to really care about the customer. Will return soon.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

First time visit to Benny's. Four of us before a comedy show at Govenor's. Nice bar area as soon as you go in for a drink before dining. Seating area was comfortable and elegent.

I have the veal chop as my entrée which was outstanding. One of those dishes that you want to savour as you devour it. Three others in my group felt same way as I did. Others had the scallops over risotto and the salmon.

The owner, Benny, walks around the dining area greeting diners and thanked us for visiting his establishment. Nicely done without being intrusive. You definitely see his presence in the dining area. Elderly gentleman.

Highly recommended and thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Wonderful, wonderful italian restaurant, with old-world classy service and atmosphere. Food is exquisite and arrived piping hot. I wish there were more restaurants of this caliber still around.

“Never disappoints”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

Benny's is a well established restaurant with a loyal following on Post Ave. The menu is ever changing with seasonal specialties that delight the palate. We really appreciate the old world feel with waiters that serve you wearing tuxedos and Benny always stopping by to chat and ensure that all is well with your meal. The ingredients are always fresh and the presentation is always impressive. It has become a tradition in our home to visit Benny's for every special occasion including our traditional Christmas Eve dinner as well as birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Give it a try and see for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
