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

I've brought groups of people here, had a romantic meal and me and my girlfriend had a great meal here. In the good weather you can sit outside and enjoy. It is a BYOBottle Dress is casual but neat. Classic Italian fare with homemade tiramisu. The owners are always there, the place is tiny but they do fit larger groups... More

This is one of my top 5 favorite restaurants and that includes the places i love in NYC. We have celebrated many events there and this visit it was my birthday. We were joined with my granddaughter (her favorite place) and her good friend. Everything was perfection, the service, the food and the relaxation that comes from knowing that you... 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

Nice-a Italian restaurant located in the heart of Chester's downtown. When the weather is pleasant, nothing beats sitting outside for lunch or dinner. Their outdoor seating is charming, away from traffic and shielded by large umbrellas. The food is good, although some entrees are better than others. They offer a lunch package for roughly $15 which includes soup or salad,... More

Centrally located in Chester makes this trattoria a perfect dining spot. The food was very good except for the fra diavlo sauce - I would have like a little more kick in it. The caesar salad was perfect and all the portions were nicely sized. There is inside seating and out on the patio. Since it's off the main street... More
