Small and informal, with a laid-back atmosphere. Great for business lunch (if you don't want to work in the afternoon, that is) and for families, but also great fun for a foodie couple. Sure you can order the starters, some pasta or the pizza, and even the house wine is pretty good, but everyone goes to da Benito because it's... More

This restaurant has an unusual menu approach - whilst there are options, they are related to you and not written down We visited as a group of 8 and had a great variety of antipasto followed by a meat feast ...and it is a FEAST - we chose a variety of beef dishes Ribs, sausages and steak - all beautifully...

Great restaurant, best steak I've ever eaten. Roast on the bone on a wood fire, meat was falling apart, tender and delicious. Very nice staff and atmosphere, clean. Does require booking a table in advance, every night is full!

Book, book, book if you don't there is little chance of getting in. No menu, just go rustic with antipasto starter, choice of pizza, pasta but a must is the local steak, if u like meet it is to die for. As the waiter to recommend, you won't be disappointed. House wine is served in a 1.5 l bottle. The... More

Just what the doctor ordered! A local restaurant with excellent food and service and very few tourist except us. Lots of local charm - don't expect a written meal just an exquisite meal.

Had been hearing about this place from some friends for the past year or so and it certainly did not disappoint. Starters, juicy tender grilled bistecca which is the speciality of the house, desserts, water and wine for only 30 euros per person. The only downside is that you will need to rent a car (or pay a cab) to... More

Benito is an institution in this part of Tuscany. Never been here, because every time I try to book it's fully booked for weeks (in weekends even months). We came here then for a work lunch with two of our customers from Florida. Small place, small menu: if you come here, you must get the steak. Once you sit at... More

The steak is fantastic. Eating it is like enjoying a delicious and passionate landscape of taste. This make it different to Kobe beef, which has one perfect taste as I could experienced in Kobe. The wonderful variety of taste of da Benito's steak in combination with the antipasti and service of this family-driven trattoria makes a visit such a good... More

For those who can, i want to say that a little stop here will be a great discover! When you travel from Florence to Lucca, go out from Altopascio highway and in 10 minutes you can find the very tipical bistecca in florentine art and not too expensive! Useless is trying other dishes, i must say there is nothing very... More
