Such a delicious lunch. Wonderful tastes, prepared with attention to flavour and beautifully presented. Three plates wiped clean. Can’t wait to try out the rest of the menu.

Our first visit to Benoli, and we will certainly be back. A very warm welcome, friendly and informative service - explanation of the menu was very helpful. The food was delicious in lovely surroundings.

The entirety of the meal was delicious. One diner was vegan and appreciated the range of vegan options. Standout dishes were the salted cod in milk starter and the pasta vongole. My wife felt that the salmon dish, although enjoyable, did not have the distinctive flavour that the cod and hake main dishes, tried previously, had.

Another delicious lunch. This time I had the Parmesan Agnolotti with porcini, truffle and hazelnut pesto, absolutely divine! Good to see that it was real truffle and not the over-powering truffle oil that seems to be so fashionable at the moment in so many restaurants! Thankyou!

Fabulous service - Pedro was a very animated storyteller, describing dishes in dramatic detail. He was spot on with wine recommendations too. Good choice of unusual pasta - only reason for 4 star review was some of the larger pasta was quite “stodgy”. The GF option of braised beef brisket was superb and the clam pasta dish was stunning. Would definitely return to try out other choices if we were in the area again.

Food was amazing. Main highlight was the staff and level of customer service, especially from our main server (a Greek lady). Only tiny point is that everything seemed very rich, which was lovely and truly delicious. But salad option or lighter option on the mains would be a welcome addition.

Favourite place to eat. Staff are friendly and will talk you through the menu to help you decide. Food is so good and I can recommend the cherry sour cocktail for desert

I was told recommended Benolis by a friend and it did not disappoint! The service was friendly with someone to explain the menu to you. Service was fast and the atmosphere was lovely. The food was AMAZING. I was sad when I had finished it. I would recommend Benolis to anyone who would ask for Italian food! Will definitely be coming back.
