Benedicto’s, Worcester – Review by HungryOwlOn May 12, 2017 by HungryOwl
I have been away from Worcester for a year and there certain places that I have missed so much. My favourite and the first place I returned to was Benedicto’s in Sidbury, Worcester.
The menu has changed whilst I have been away. Gone is the al a carte menu; but that’s not a bad thing. The new menu is pizza, pasta and few other dishes. I suppose this is the sort of comfort food that people look forward to in England when they eat at an Italian restaurant.
We skipped starters after seeing the pizzas coming out to the other tables and knowing that there was no way we would eat an entire pizza if we had a starter.
So I ordered my own creation pizza with Parma Ham, Salami and prawns, FattyCat had the Pizza Piccante which had spicy salami. Both pizzas looked like proper handmade thin crust Italian pizzas and the taste took us straight back there too. They were fabulous.
For dessert we both enjoyed Tiramsu as authentic as Nonna used to make (without the alcohol though)
To accompany the meal we had a Rosato from the Le Marche region of Italy. It was fresh and dry, perfect to accompany the Pizzas.
The staff at Benedicto’s are all Italian and have a lovely friendly and slightly crazy nature. They are happy to help you choose you food and happy to help you learn a little Italian along the way if you wish.
This was the best welcome back to Worcester.
