Benucci's is perfect for a romantic night out or just getting together with friends for dinner. They have a nice bar with unique cocktails and the service is fast and friendly. The bread is warm and fluffy and the pasta dishes quite tasty and large. You cna't go wrong with Benucci's, best kept secret in Rochester.

Title says it all. Nothing bad to say but definitely nothing great to say. Average at best which would explain the less than half filled dining room

We were disappointed not only in our food (more on that in a moment), but the service should be rated a 2 or less. No one came to take our drink order so I ordered my own at the bar. Finally someone came to our table after a significant amount of time. Our food took a long time to be served on a night that wasn't busy.

Now to the food; the bruschetta was good, the greens and beans were not well seasoned and lacked flavor, the penne ala vodka was bland and dry.

I love their lunch menu. They have a good variety of dishes to choose from in lunch-sized portions. I've eaten here several times and have especially liked their individual pizzas, all with interesting toppings and nice crispy crusts. I recently had the small caesar salad with grilled chicken. The greens were fresh and crunchy, the dressing was delicious, and the chicken moist and flavorful. Add warm Italian bread and who could ask for more.
