We had an absolutely wonderful meal at Benvenuti Ristorante. We were so sad when Salvatore closed, but delighted when they re-opened as Benvenuti. Wonder food, refined atmosphere, flawless service. Everything on the menu is delicious. you cant go wrong with fresh ingredients and house-made pasta.

Food good. Noisy. Tables pretty close to each other. Probably won't return because of noise level. Decor acceptable but plain. Not exactly fine dining.

No. Street parking is metered 10a to 8p and is expensive. The W.C. Library across street has parking in underground garage and is reasonable.
