This is one of my go to places when I want good Italian food without the frills. If you have a special request they accommodate without any issues. The mussels and the pan fried chicken with broccoli rabe are my 2 favorite dishes.

Love this place. Excellent customer service! Friendly staff. Great food. Reasonable prices. I recommend this place to anyone. Sitting outside is awesome - overlooking the hill covered by trees. Very convenient location. Plenty of parking. ShipRite is next door.

You can count on Bensi to have consistently good food for a good value. I like the the chicken over broccoli rabe and their fried shrimp is very good as well. I have never had a bad meal, honestly. If you want to run out for a quick meal, you can't go wrong here.

Went here for a meal not realising it was a BYOB...so if you're intending on having a drink with your meal, go prepared! The interior is pretty tired and dated but the food overall was ok with good portions. Salmon was good but colleagues were disappointed with their meals (not getting sauce or described sides with mains..) the staff were... More

It has been several years since I was here, but I must say Bensi is still quite good! The pasta, Stromboli, and pizza are excellent. We had take out - so I am very sure that eat in might even be better!!! The dining room is pleasant, and parking is a breeze (large shopping center). Enjoy!

Can't quite place it - the variety is there, the colors are there, the friendly staff is there. But the dishes are not very flavorful. Still, scores above the nearby fast food alternatives.

Bensi cheerfully accommodated our family of eleven on short notice on Easter Sunday night. We were there to attend my Dad's funeral on Monday and Tuesday and were really happy they were open. The service was superb and the food was excellent. Some of the best Italian food we have had in a long, long time. The staff went out... More

The menu includes items from heroes to ravilloi. The selection is varied and the food is all fresh. In warm weather you can eat outside although the dining inside is not crowded.

Went to this place twice with a friend. I've frequently been to the shopping center it's in, but never thought to eat there. The food was pretty good. The first time I ate here, I wasn't too thrilled with my dish because the pasta was a little too chewy for me, but the second time everything was great. Service was... More

I don't know what to tell you about how AWFUL the service was and the food made me physically ill. I went with friends for my birthday. I'm a vegetarian and I ordered the Buccatini Primavera. I mentioned that I was a strict vegetarian when I ordered and there was CHICKEN in my food. The manger, Geronomo, who was also... More
