Good Food, Family, Friends and Fun!
Bene Pizza and Pasta was a concept that came into being in 2002. The Lanphier family had dreamed of opening a restaurant and the idea came together after they all met one evening and talked about combining the many talents throughout the family.
Bob and Ginger Lanphier’s sons: Jon who had a great deal of food and culinary experience and Bobby who had a striving internet business restoring the classic arcade and pinball games of the 1980’s golden age. Ginger’s mother, Grace, started with, and worked for over 25 years with, a well known family owned local pizzeria before she suddenly died in 1987. Grace left a legacy of old world Italian recipes and between her secrets and those that Jon came up with on his own, the Bene pizza menu was born.
Bene - Means Good!
The unique concept of Bene lies in its atmosphere. You truly feel like you are stepping back in time, movie posters of the true classics from the 70’s and 80’s line the walls, A classic 70’s style jukebox loaded with hits from the 70’s , 80’s and 90’s and to top it all off a true classic arcade just like the old days - featuring games like Pac-man and Defender with over 50 classic arcades represented and the best pinball selection in the area.
The cornerstone of the concept was Bob and Ginger who really helped get everything in place and perfect this family dining experience. All of the extended family was involved in many ways, from aunts Mary, Barb, and Diane helping whenever they could, to Uncle Jim and cousins Justin and Jason who helped with the build-out to uncle John in Kansas city who once owned a chain of pizza restaurants, helping with setup and design and even working in the kitchen when he is in town. So peruse our menu and stop by anytime, you may never want to leave. You will find out why we have so many regulars that we see every week and know everyone by name. Come and experience Bene for good food and fun with family and friends. Adults and kids alike can never get enough Bene!
