About Us


Locally Owned and Opporated Since 1996

Through a shared commitment to excellence, Benvenuto’s Italian Grill is dedicated to the uncompromising quality of our food, service and people, while taking exceptional care of our restaurant guests and staff. We will continuously strive to surpass our accomplishments and remain a leader in the hospitality industry.

Benvenuto’s is a family-owned Wisconsin business and not a corporate chain. Each location has a slightly different look but all have the same menus, recipes and dedication to quality. We help our neighbors and communities by hosting “Dine Outs” to assist non-profit charitable organizations and support their cause by donating 20% of participant sales directly to them.

The first Benvenuto’s Italian Grill opened in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin in 1996. We are a locally owned and operated restaurant group, ready to serve you.

Our History

The Benvenuto’s restaurant concept started off as a dinner only, Italian dining experience. The menu consisted of a handful of pasta dishes and a few wood-fired pizzas; all of which embodied a “family style” presentation, with food being served on giant platters for 3-4 people. Soon after, the doors opened for lunch and the menu changed to include individual dishes, expanded entrée options and grilled items such as steaks and fish.

Since being established in 1996, Benvenuto’s Italian Grill has grown to four locations across Wisconsin, with plans to open more in the near future. All locations are family-owned businesses and two are locally owned and operated franchises. The Benvenuto’s concept offers something for everyone, focusing on quality, fresh ingredients.

Benvenuto’s founding philosophy is to never settle and to always look for ways to improve upon our food and service on a daily basis. “We should always be looking for ways to heighten our guest’s experience.”


The menu at Benvenuto’s Italian Grill offers a diverse selection of traditional Italian favorites, including our made from scratch meatballs topped with homemade marinara, baked tetrazzini, scratch made alfredo, lasagna, chicken parmigiana, calzones, bruschetta, wood fired pizza, warm focaccia bread, and so much more.

Our featured menu rotates seasonally, changing four times per year, but our diners can always expect:

* Made from scratch sauces and soups * Hand-tossed, wood-fired pizzas * Salads and sides using fresh cut produce * Fresh (never frozen) beef for burgers and salmon  * All Wisconsin sourced cheese* Fried fish everyday, not just on Fridays  * Extensive gluten-free menu * Quality, value, and large portions
