I LOVE the food at Benucci's Italian. It is consistently superb, and very reasonably priced, which is why I keep going back there. If I were to rate it on the food alone it would be top marks, and overflowing beyond that. I think that for groups of people the service is also top-notch. I'm just not sure if the... More

I have gone to Benuccis several times over the past few years and I can say that I have never had a bad meal there. Their lasagna with bolognese sauce is amazing and this evening I had a meatball and The Greens and Beans and believe me there was lots of sausage in The Greens and Beans. Both items constituted...

I love chicken parmigiana and also love Alfredo. When I was hear a few years ago I realized they serve their chicken parm with pasta with Alfredo sauce. Amazing! I enjoyed the combination so much I started asking for it when at other places. During my most recent trip the chicken parm was on point and delicious as I remembered... More

We went two other couples to the restaurant at Greece Ridge Center. We were promptly welcomed and taken to our table. The young lady who served us was attentive and courteous. My wife and I had the lasagna bolonese. We never had that combination before and it was very tasty. It was attractively presented on a tray along with the... More

The management was very willing to accomadate us because we had a 1:00 movie time and they opened at 11:30. The waitress took our drink, then lunch order and agreed to give us separate checks. There were17 of us and the waitress did a fantastic job presenting our meals, handing out the checks and collecting the credit cards or money.... More

Great first impression: atmosphere is nice and greeters were phenomenal: they turned to every guest with genuine warmth and attention. Service was efficient but not very respectful. Food was fairly good, on par with prices. Groups are charged built in tip, though this is not listed on the credit card bill: it only lists the amount and a blank tip... More

We had a little time before a movie so we stopped at Benucci's for a beverage and a light bite. We were glad we did. We shared Crab Cakes and a nice shrimp app and they were both delicious.

I had a sliced steak on a salad and asked for medium well, and it came rare. Did not send it back as I didn't want to be the drag on the table. All in all it is a fair Italian restaurant. Good but not great.

Not the first time that we have eaten here. Took another couple. Food was great everyone really enjoyed everything that they ordered. Service was great, prompt and thoughtful. Love when they remember to fill the water glasses and ice tea glasses without having to be asked. Lasagna, shrimp pesto,pasta Benucci and chicken with alfredo sauce. Calamari appetizer. Couldn't pick a... More

I had not been to Benuccis in nearly a decade. I was faint with hunger, so while in Greece, we stopped at the Benuccis in the Greece Ridge Mall. We had a wonderful experience, so thought we'd try one closer to home. We have been there twice for a late lunch. Both times we had the same waiter. He was... More
