Went to dinner with another couple for 7:30 on Saturday night. Arrived and took 15 minutes before anyone opened our wine. Never saw anyone again until 8:15. Big dumb waiter comes to take our orders and we ask are there any specials? He says, "I didn't tell you yet"? He tells us the specials and comes back to take our order. We ordered 3 apps and 4 entrees. No sign of food and no sign of anyone checking on us to fill our water etc .It is now 8:55 and there is no food. Unacceptable! We got up and walked past the waiter and said we can't wait anymore. He said you still haven't gotten any food??? Really??? After almost 90 minutes. This place is so small yet he we was invisible. Worst service I ever had and will never go back. Who cares if the food is good if they don't actually serve it. Sign outside says they are on vacation from 8/1-8/15. I think they started their vacation early. This place sucks. Go elsewhere like Forte in Randolph.

Fresh is how you describe the seafood served here. My wife ordered Tilapia and it was delicious
and melted in your mouth. I had Calamari Marinara over pasta. The sauce was delicious and,
again, it melted in your mouth ( I've had plenty of calamari at other restaurants that was a little too
firm, and some that was like rubber, Benvenuti's is the absolute best!) The Waitstaff is always
attentive and friendly, and it's Byob. Finish off your meal with a delicious cappuccino served in a
tall glass cup.

Our favorite restaurant by far!. We've never been disappointed with any dish we order and are impressed with the personal service of the owners. They remember our favorite dishes and will accommodate special requests. This place is a must try!

I live in Alabama and travel in my consulting job. I had worked in the East Hanover area for several years, and I visited Benvenuti at least once per week, often 2-3 times per week. This is a very small restaurant, where the staff provides excellent service and wonderful cuisine. They take genuine pride in providing a memorable dining experience. This is # 2 on my all-time favorite restaurants list!
