My wife and I were in the midst of a long drive home from a family trip with our two girls, aged 8 and 10. We wanted pizza, had been in the car 3 1/2 hours, and Bennington was the best place to stop on the way to find it, right on the main drag downtown. We also wanted t keep our spending down, if possible. We found Ramunto's on the web, and it was awesome. Thin-crust NY-style pizza, self-serve fountain drinks, and good-sized salads and calzones. They have a very good lunch special: 7 days a week, you get two cheese slices and a free refill fountain soda for $3.50. M-F, same deal, except you can two specialty slices, and it is $5. The two slices will be large - almost certainly enough for most adults, and definitely enough for any kid. We ordered a large Greek salad, as well, and at $6.50, we felt it was a very good value. My wife and I were able to take about 1/3 each of it, and my kids split the other third, and we were satisfied with our portions as a pre-pizza salad. All of it was very tasty. There is free on-street parking, right on Main Street (Rt. 9) downtown. The ambiance is very casual. About half of the floor space is for a bar, with two big TVs that had football games on. Although we didn't have any beer on this visit, I was impressed by the variety of beers on tap, and would definitely come back for a dinner if I was in the area sometime. You can eat at the bar. The other half of the customer area is a number of finished picnic tables, plus several traditional four-seat square tables. There are two more big TVs, which also had football on. It is not a sports bar, per se, but the ambiance, posters, etc., are very sports-centric. The bar was about full, with eight or 10 people clearly taking their time, watching football, and socializing. Definitely local residents. The dining room had several families and small groups of teenagers , none of them terribly interested in the football games. The service was very good. The pizza came out very quickly, fresh from the oven, and the young woman who took our order was very friendly. The bill for four lunch specials and a large Greek salad was $22 - you can't beat that. My only complaint is that the football games were extremely loud. It is not a very big place, but the volume was VERY high, to the point where my wife and kids were getting annoyed. I am a huge football fan, and even I was a little annoyed by the level of volume. A very small thing, though, for an excellent restaurant - highly recommended for families, couples, or an individual looking to have a relaxing, casual meal in a friendly, local environment. We will return.
Great pizza place for a small town that doesn't have much going on. Order by slice or get a whole pizza. They also have a nice little bar inside too. We got a couple slices (pepperoni and white sun dried tomato with spinach and feta). Both were very good. Pretty New Yorky which surprised us. We also ordered the wings which were decent as well and the garlic knots which were delicious. Service is quick and prices are reasonable. Solid place.
Decent pizza place in a sleepy town. Ordered the spinach dip appetizer, half salad, and large meat-lovers pizza. The cashier warned us the spinach would take a while, but we were in no rush. The spinach dip was GIGANTIC - could have been a meal. The pizza was adequate - not bad, not amazing. Good beer selection and bar area. Main complaint is the lack of table service - makes ordering confusing. Order your food up front, open a tab so you can order beer at the bar, you're on your own as far as refills, napkins, silverware, etc. Go back to the cashier when you're ready to leave... etc. Just a lot of work for the customer.
We stop now and then, and never had a bad experience. I have tried the pizza & gyro. My partner likes the spanokopita and greek salad, and the eggplant parmesan was rated good by two others. Lots more on the menu than the downloadable one. The staff has always been attentive and serves our table after ordering at the kitchen. Ohhh.. the baklava on the counter is quite large, and good. Nothing excellent, but just good, and that is good enough! Prices are reasonable, just check the menu.
We had a delicious meal. The Greek salad was fresh and very good. We loved the vegetarian pizza! The crust tasted cheesy and had just the right amount of crunchiness. The flavors in the sauce and toppings blended smoothly. The friendly staff and good service, along with the excellent food, rounded off a positive meal.
