We ate lunch at Dionsio Bistrot and enjoyed it so much that we thought we would try their dining establishment. We were not prepared for how fancy this was. It is down a dark street and then downstairs into what appears to be a very large restaurant in a beautiful setting. Service was excellent. There are some set menus and also ala carte. We did not want the quantity of food in the set menus so we just ordered on our own.

First courses - Lamb carpaccio, bacon tart, spaghettone
Second courses - Quail, fusilli, stuffed tortellini

Everything was good but seemed the antithesis of what one expects from Italian cuisine which is simple ingredients made to shine. If you are looking for a special occasion kind of place in Benevento, this is it.

Situated in an atmospheric lower ground floor setting with a marvellous atmosphere. The choice of dishes was comprehensive, with three choices of set menus as well as a la carte. All the dishes we chose were beautifully presented and the food, delicious. Portion sizes were just right, not too little, not too much. Wine choices were extensive, from many Italian regions as well as other countries. Service was impeccable, just the right balance between hovering and ignoring. Altogether a memorable meal. Could find no faults.

We visited the restaurant without realising that it offered a fine dining experience.
The interior was beautiful and the attention of the waiter was very good except that he was hard to understand.
The food was pretty exceptional.

We joined another couple from our wine and food tour for an early (7:30 p.m.) dinner at Dionisio. The Ristorante is around the corner and down the street from the Bistrot, so you have to look carefully for it, but it's well worth the search. It took a few minutes for them to come up with a menu in English (which we consider a good sign) and most of the other patrons were Italian. The food was excellent, the ambiance and service were marvelous and we would definitely characterize Dionisio as a "special occasion" sort of place.

For dinner we had(names approximate only):
1 Formaggio crocante...
2 Petto de oca...
3 Blu de bufala
4 Tiramisu'
5 Ricotta e pera...

Beautiful interior with entrance from dark alley. Very attentive service. Sharing dishes was no problem.

The food tasted excellently! Comments:
1 Bottom had become wet so not really crocante
2 Parts of the meat so sinewy that it couldn't be chewed
3 Melted in the mouth!
5 Delicious but quite heavy

Would have given top grade except for item 2.
