We wandered in last evening for a lite dinner. The pizza, garlic bread, and house wine were all very good. Service was excellent. We shall return to try other offerings.

Who knew Placerville would be so busy on a Thursday night??? We ended up at Bene by default, as the restaurants we were familiar with were packed. We arrived just as a table on the patio was vacated and, as it was a beautiful night,...More
