Benedetto, the new Italian restaurant from the team behind Giulia, promises to be the most exciting journey yet into the diverse and irresistible regions of Italy. We are inspired by the honesty and wisdom of traditional Italian regional cooking. We aspire to be interpreters and caretakers of these great traditions, both with our craft in the kitchen and with our genuine hospitality. We look forward to preparing our favorite seasonal dishes for you with the very best Italian specialty ingredients and, even more importantly, the best our local purveyors have to offer.

Benedetto’s two private dining rooms can comfortably accommodate up to 79 guests for a seated event and up to 110 guests for a standing reception. The restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the heart of Harvard Square. A world class design from architect Paul Bentel draws inspiration from the rural sophistication of Umbria. Our private event menus feature Benedetto’s refined cooking with bold flavors and rich textures.

In addition to our private event space, the Pasta Table is a custom designed, twelve foot long table in our dining room. By day, hand crafted pastas are made here from the finest stone milled and Italian specialty flours. By night, the pasta table becomes a dining table seating twelve people where your meal will be an evening long journey through the best dishes of the season as personally selected by our culinary team.

Book Benedetto for your next birthday party, corporate event, rehearsal dinner, or any of your other special occasions!
