Benito's has successfully traded for 10 years in Dalkey. It's owners, Camillo and Jackie Borza, both come from a food and beverage background from their respective family businesses. Their business is constantly evolving and improving.

Their pizzas have always been prepared in-house by expert pizza chefs and toppings like chicken and ham are slow-cooked overnight to produce a high quality pizza.

In 2013 Benito's started to produce its own pasta and these homemade pastas have proved a hit from the very start. Dishes such as the Ravioli Fiorentina and Tagliatelle with Hick's sausage meat ragú are setting Benito's apart from its competition and giving the restaurant a strong identity.

Benito's prides itself on its friendly reputation and appeals to families and couples alike. It's not unusual to see families in the restaurant at six o'clock and couples in for the second sitting, enjoying the live music by resident musician Seán Whelan (ex-Cafe Orchestra).

For those nights that you prefer to stay in, Benito's has a separate takeaway section and offers a delivery service.

Won't be coming back. Food was bland. Table where we sitting was very uncomfortable & wasn't secure. Waitress that served us wasn't on the ball. When it got busy - we were forgotten.

Was quite as it was mid week but still had a warm friendly atmosphere. Food was fresh and very tasty and at a reasonable price. Our server was also friendly and knowledgable about the menu, no complaints here

Three of us decided to try here on a friend's recommendation. The Seafood pasta was delicious. The Pizza was too big to finish! and the pork escalope was just divine. The deserts were also delicious. it is one of the nicest places to eat in Dalkey.

We went in Benito's last sunday. The food was awful, especially the meatballs, they were tasteless and the tomato sauce as well. The pizza was insipid.

Haven't been to Benitos in a while, but as ever, we had a great night! Fantastic pizza and caprese as ever. The crab ravioli was gorgeous and atmosphere suitably buzzy! It won't be so long before the next visit...

We booked for an early table as we were having a family meal and we were seated in the booth in the middle which was perfect. We shared a selection of starters which were very good. The kids particularly enjoyed ordering their pizzas with their own pick of toppings. The adults had the fish special which was very good and all the kids ate everything. The early bird is exceptional value, especially in a large group and the service was good but hard to judge if it is all the time as the resturant was not full. However it is a family favourite!

There is nothing I can say except if the waiting staff were a bit more attentive this would be a 5 star restraunt the food is delicious homemade good authentic italian cooking and you are not rushed through your meal though this might not be intentonal as you have to try extreamly hard to get the waiting staff's attention once they have taken your order big loss for the restraunt as not as much drink being served between courses but the atmosphere is electric and everybody seemed very happy.

We arrived and were shown to our table. We were given our menus and then waited 10 minutes before anyone came near us again. We had been in the restaurant almost half an hour before we were asked if we'd like a drink. We then waited another ten minutes before our order was taken. My partner Liam ordered meat balls to start, followed by steak. I ordered calamari and a pizza with feta and pepperoni. The meatballs were delicious according to Liam and my calamari was perfectly acceptable. Our main courses arrived and immediately I could see from Liam’s face that he was disappointed with the steak. I wasn’t surprised as it looked terrible. It was just a steak served on top of some soggy roast potatoes with a side order of ordinary boiled vegetables. My pizza had chicken on it instead of pepperoni. And I don’t mean roast chicken – it looked like that cheap thinly sliced stuff that you get in sandwiches at a garage. When the waitress asked how everything was, I didn’t want to cause a fuss but felt I did need to mention the wrong ingredient on my pizza. She offered to change it but I didn’t want to wait because Liam would be finished his meal by the time I got a new pizza. As expected, the pizza had almost no flavour so I was forced to smother it in chilli oil. A male member of staff approached us and asked how the meal was. I told him about the mix-up with the pizza and he told me that I was eating the pizza so it must be good. My Irish born parents live in Umbria so I have had plenty of experience with pizza. By no stretch of the imagination could that pizza have been described as ‘good’. He then muttered something under his breath about getting us desserts or coffees or something. I assumed he meant that we would be given them on the house. When we asked for the bill, we were offered nothing - not even a drink on the house! Avoid this place!!!
