We are fortunate to have a team dedicated to the sole task of getting extra safety and sanitation guidelines into place.
 
Our standards of cleanliness and sanitation already operate on an above industry standard manner and we have implemented new policies by recommendation of the FDA and CDC.

We would like to first thank you for your continued support of Benvenuto’s during this challenging time we have all been through.  First and foremost is safety, and we would like to reiterate that we have increased our already stringent sanitation processes.  The safety of our guests and all team members is our number one concern.  We ask that you too use the hand sanitizers and also wash your hands frequently to help curb any further issues with the virus.  We also ask that everyone please do their best to respect social distancing guidelines.

As we reopen, there may be some products that we normally would serve that will be unavailable due to the supply chain or other issues.  We are working diligently to find acceptable substitutions that meet the high quality that we demand at Benvenuto’s.

We ask for your understanding as we transition back into full operations with all of the products and services available.  If we are out of one of your favorites, your server, bartender or a management team member can help steer you to another menu item that you will like. 

Again we thank you for your many years of loyal patronage as we strive to do our best to make sure that your Benvenuto’s experience is the best that it can be every time for many years to come.

Benvenuto’s Restaurants are offering half price meals to local frontline health care workers and first responders.

The hospitality industry is one of the most significantly impacted industries during the coronavirus crisis. Bars and restaurants are reevaluating and strengthening their safety and sanitization practices after being ordered to close their dining rooms and event services. Many restaurants are staying in business by offering carry-out, delivery, and curbside pickup meal options, even those who typically operate with dine-in only services.

All challenges aside, Benvenuto’s Italian Grill, which has seven locations statewide, is acknowledging the real heroes during this unprecedented pandemic, the healthcare workers, first responders, and their support staff on the frontline, by offering 50% off their entire menu. “We recognize those who are working long hours day after day, and want to show our appreciation” states Brian Dominick, owner of Benvenuto’s.

All Benvenuto’s locations will offer Healthcare and EMS workers half-price menu items until the dine-in ban is lifted and business can operate as usual. This discount applies to all healthcare staff including janitorial and administrative positions. Upon pick-up please show your work ID as confirmation. Along with this special specifically for those on the front lines, there are additional promotions available for all consumers, that are valid for curbside pickup and delivery.
