ABOUT

Benny’s Big Time Pizzeria is what the name suggests - big, fun, tasty, and Italian. As a Southern food flag-flier, I’ve long resisted the urge to cook Italian. But Benny’s gives our team permission to make all the wood-fired pizza, ravioli, bucatini, risotto and spiedini we can stand. It’s the perfect place to bring your family and the perfect place to share a meal and perhaps some drinks without your family. Italian food makes people happy. Benny’s Big Time takes happiness to the next level.
