we had lunch at Benito's last week and really like the quality of the food, but they do seem to have an issue with overcharging costumers, we ordered the Caesar salad for $4.95, but were charged $7.95, they charged $18.95 for the mushroom Risotto, which is on their lunch menu for $12.95.

We were in Chester to pick up somethings we ordered and the store happen to call us around 3:00 pm to say our order was in. We quickly decided to take a ride to pick up our order so it was a last moment visit. Since we had eaten on many occasion at Benito's, we decided to have dinner there.... More

We have been there quite a few times over the years for lunch and dinner and have always been pleased with the food, service and atmosphere. There are not a lot of restaurants that we like enough to go back to a second time, but this is one that is better than most Italian restaurants. The weekday lunch special is... More

Not the typical franchise of Italian food. All dishes prepared fresh in a lovely dining room. Small, intimate upscale restaurant.

I've eaten here many times over the years. Service is always good, food is high quality. It's a BYOB place, which makes it more reasonable. This place is comfort food for me, who has to return to Jersey every so often to get some good Italian food. You won't be disappointed at Benito's. Not a Michelin rated place, but for... More

We were there recently. We placed our order. The salads eventually came and a small basket of bread. No one came by again to see if we wanted anything . After 2 hours with no sign of any food, we got up to leave. We were stopped and assured our food was coming right out. We waited a little longer.... More
