I ordered the eggplant rollatini. It was small, charred, very little filling. The angel hair pasta did not have a red sauce and there was no sauce on the eggplant. Salad was OK. This meal was overpriced for the lack of quality. I ordered a cafe latte. It came in a small cup with very little latte. My husband said his meatball was awful and left it on the plate.

Great food, large quantities, good service. The scallops with pesto risotto were delicious. The tiramisu was probably the best we’ve ever had. Same for the creme brûlée with raspberry sauce. Divine! We went on a super hot and humid day, so the temperature inside was a bit warm and clammy for our taste. However, it wasn’t bad enough to affect our enjoyment of the meal. We will definitely return!

I always enjoy Benucci’s for their GF menu. I had a bad martini which they readily fixed. Service is top notch. Food was good, not great, but definitely good.

Food and Service were great! A little disappointed that a restaurant with a kids menu, high chairs, and huge bathrooms have no Baby Changing Stations, otherwise a good experience.

Good food, their fresh bread basket with garlic butter was good, they should serve more breads if number of guest more. Food was good. Would be even good if they can have more vegan and vegetarian choices in menu

Have always had a good meal at Benucci's. This visit did not disappoint. The Bruschetta Trio had a nice selection of flavors and was good to share. The Caramelized Salmon was cooked the way I asked and I was able to substitute whole wheat penna for the angel hair pasta. The Profiterole desert comes with four again just right to share for desert.

Excellent Menu, Amazing Italian Entrees, Good Wine selection and generous portions, Awesome warm Bread and Terrific Salad Entee Selections. Service is attentive and not intrusive. Very tasteful atmosphere and comfortable larger booths when needed. Great Catering Menu as well. Love giving business to our local establishments, and they show that they appreciate it as well. We have been returning to Benucci’s for countless years and hope for countless more to come!

We went for an early dinner (4 p.m.) hoping for a place for quiet conversation, and we were not disappointed. It was fairly empty at that time. Our server was attentive . The food was wonderful.

I hadn't been here in a long time, and I wasn't disappointed. Food was delicious (I had the veal parm), service was great.... and very ample. We had enough to take home for another dinner. All in all, a great dinner and I'll go back again.

I came up to Rochester to pick up my daughter from RIT. She made reservations at Benucci's on Saturday (5/11/19) evening. I am thankful that we had reservations because the people who came in without reservations had a 30 - 45 minute wait. I like the look of the dining area. It was nice and clean. With the restaurant being busy, it was noisy, but not too loud that we could not hear each other talk. I ordered Penne Vodka with Shrimp. My two children also ordered Penne Vodka, one had it with Chicken and the other order was plain Penne Vodka. After the waitress took our order, she brought our drinks along with 3 rolls. Then we didn't see her again until she brought out our meals. I'm glad no one needed anything else. Even though the food was good, it would have been nice to have a more attentive waitress.

We were a party of five and everyone ordered something different and everybody enjoyed their meal. We had the pasta chips nachos for an appetizer for the table and everybody enjoyed it. Our reservation was for seven and it was a little late but considering how crowded it was it wasn’t bad, we sat at the bar for a drink. The restaurant quieted right down about 730 7:45. Overall we had a very pleasant experience and would visit again. Only complaint is trying to find a parking spot In Pittsford Plaza.

The food is average. There is nothing “interesting” on the menu. Pricing ($20.00) for spaghetti and a salad is pretty high for Rochester. Service was good.

I have been to this restaurant many times. This time I was disappointed with the artichoke French. It was too oily & over cooked. The servers are always welcoming & helpful.

There were 4 people in my group & the other three were very pleased with their food.

We were a party of 5; each and every one of our dinners was excellent. The grilled shrimp and pasta special was especially good. It was seasoned properly and the shrimp had a nice charcoal grill flavor. The caramelized salmon was also a pleaser. Service was professsional and friendly.

Quick service and warm atmosphere, server came to table within a minute of sitting down. Order the calamari for a starter and the pesce diavolo for an entree, the calarmi was fried well and didn't have an overwhelming amount of salt. Pesce diavolo was very small, about 3 pieces each of shrimp, scallops, and mussels, sauce did not taste spicy at all, and the linguine tasted like it came from a box. My girlfriend ordered the chicken parmesan and said that the chicken was rubbery and dry.

My friend and I each enjoyed freshly prepared salads. Our server had no problem with my request for substitutions. We shared an order of garlic bread with mozzarella, which came as a hand-crafted pizza. Lots of melted cheese over a crisp crust - a perfect complement to the salads. We both ordered Italian blackberry sodas, which were delightfully refreshing. A perfect meal with superb service. We will be back again - soon!
