Was close to our hotel so tried it out. Lasagna was the best I've ever tried anywhere, and the staff were warm and welcoming. We returned a few nights later and enjoyed it just as much. The tables are close but it gave us the opportunity to meet a family from Italy who were on vacation. We spent our time talking the them and the owners served us a complimentary warm masala wine while we talked and shared our pictures and stories. Great atmosphere for people who like to socialize while being served delicious food in a friendly family oriented environment.

We dined at Bistro Benito on Monday, 29th. April, 2013. The place was busy, the staff very friendly, the food, awful. They seemed to have one sauce for everything. I had a chicken dish, which arrived covered in a Bolognese-ish sauce, that was JUST edible. My wife had a lasagne, covered in the same sauce, which she found gristly and inedible. Our friend had a spaghetti Bolognese (same sauce) which he too found quite distasteful and left most of it.

We were not inclined to try any desserts given the quality of their main meals.

The best I can say of this establishment is that the staff and owner (?) were extremely affable.

Visited this eaterie on Sunday (two adults); it was the day of the George Michael concert. Everywhere was extremely crowded, including this bistro. The restaurant was very busy and noisy. The tables were extremely close together, too close there was no privacy in peoples' conversations. There was a reasonable choice but limited vegetarian options, prices OK. We had to wait over 30 minutes for our meal, a couple of apologies that the meal was coming but no explanation (some customers had ordered, eaten and left whilst still waiting) as to why we had to wait - it was only pasta. Bearing in mind this is an Italian restaurant, you would expect top class pasta and sauces. Mine, a stuffed pasta in tomato sauce, lacked a good, rich flavour and was only just warm. Perhaps on a less busy day this bistro would have scored more points, but sorry to say I left feeling hungry! A place I would not return to.

We were staying in Earl's Court in July 2011 and decided to try this not huge restaurant rather than one of the many chains in the same area. Variety of Italian food well served.The service recieved was the best. How about staff? They were friendly, especially some beautiful waitress with brown, long hair with Polish (as we might have known)accent ,she was really nice and personable. We were in Bistro in September and the atmosphere was worse in this place. But anyway, we are going to visit this place during this year. One of the best restaurants in Earl's Court.
