Providing A Taste of Italy

Beneci’s Cucina brings a taste of Italy to the Weehawken area, delivering fresh, housemade recipes. The restaurant provides a warm and inviting atmosphere so you want to stay a while.

“Beneci’s is where you’ll find portions reminiscent of Sundays at Nonna’s and where recipes may have been coaxed out of grandmothers and mothers, whose ideas of a recipe were a pinch of this and a smidge of that,” Ramon Perez, Executive Chef at Beneci’s Cucina, told The Hoboken Girl. “Needless to say, our chefs have inserted their talents to round out the offerings reflecting their own experiences along their culinary journey.”

In addition to the heartwarming and savory Italian cuisine, the restaurant also offers an impressive wine list, classic cocktails, and delicious desserts, including the popular tiramisu — all at an affordable price.

Cultivating Memorable Dining Experiences

Beneci’s Cucina employs a passionate and experienced team that delivers exceptional experiences to diners. Lori Crowley, general manager of the Sheraton Lincoln Harbor, has worked closely with the Beneci’s Cucina team to build the restaurant from the ground up. Involved in the day-to-day operations are Perez and Meritan Kraja, Director of Food and Beverage.

When asked about the best part of running Beneci’s Cucina, Pursel noted how special it is to serve happy, repeat customers who have enjoyed the hospitality and food.

“Come to where people know your name, invite you in, and invite you back,” said Kraja. “Where the Chef sits at the table with you after dinner and tells stories of where his influences have come from. Where you can create your own love story with Italian food and have an adventure that’s light-hearted and fun. BENVENUTI! Now you are family.”

Diners can enjoy seasonal outdoor dining with music all summer long. There is available parking on site, and the restaurant is also within walking distance of many local areas. You can use OpenTable for reservations.
