Drink was a little pricey, but food was fairly priced and decently delicious. I ordered the chicken and broccoli with creme sauce. Was tasty, but could have used a little more flavor (garlic or cheese). Staff were courteous and helpful. Would go again!

Visited the New England area and made a trip to Boston's North End. Did some research on restaurants in the are and chose Benevento's. Great choice as the food was excellent and so was the service. There was literally an Italian restaurant on every block so making a decision was difficult. We hit the jackpot. Will visit again if I'm... More

Fantastic place. The owner is at the door, in the kitchen or wherever he needs to be to make this gem shine. Make a reservation and be prepared to wait. The food is awesome and the portion sizes are large. We tried the lasagna and penne al a vodka both winners !

This was our third time eating at this restaurant. We haven't had a bad meal yet. On our last visits, they gave us complimentary Limoncello at the end of our meal. They didn't offer it this time , so not sure if that has stopped. Great Italian food. Will definitely be back next year!

The food is excellent. We have been going there for over 2 years and have never had anything but fantastic food. The last 2 visits in January we were seated downstairs at the same table with the same horrid waitress. I called and asked that a manager call me back which they did not. I also emailed them with no... More

Second trip to Benevento's this year. We were a larger group of two families (4 adults and three kids) but were seated quickly. Our waitress was excellent, very knowledgeable, friendly and her recommendations were spot on. It was a cold wet day and the staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. The food was excellent.... More

Let's get the 1 good thing out of the way. The food was delicious. I am rating 1 star because of the horrible service. We had a table of 5 and they sat us down stairs by the bathroom which totally takes away from the vibe upstairs (kitchen is open to the dining room). To start, we had a broken... More

We got off to a slow start as it took 40 minutes to get a bottle of wine. Once we let the waitress know we were on a time restraint things got better. Waitress was super friendly and became attentive. Food was outstanding. We had a gluten free member in our party who took advantage of the GF pasta option.... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch. It's a small place, and a little dark, but it was clean and the staff was friendly. We sat in the back, where there's only 2 tables, and we could look down upon the cooks, which was interesting. The waitress was friendly and recommended the homemade fusilli with my chicken parm. She... More

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
