After facing criticism for dominating Italian menus, pizzas disguised themselves by folding in half, nesting inside bagels, and hiding in the secret compartments of birthday cakes. Unmask hidden pizzas with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Italian fare at Bensi. Choose from three locations: at The Shoppes at Hamilton in Hamilton, NJ; The Shoppes at English Village in North Wales, PA; and The Shoppes at Cross Keys in Sicklerville, NJ.
Amid an urban-bistro atmosphere, Bensi's thumb-worn recipe book conjures a diverse menu of savory Italian eats, from plated entrees to crispy pizzas baked with homemade dough. The house specialty chicken francese weds slender slices of chicken to robust artichoke hearts drizzled in lemony butter sauce ($10.95/lunch, $15.95/dinner). Classic pizzas ($5.95+) and newfangled white pizzas ($6.95+)—topped with olive oil, garlic, and basil instead of red sauce—satiate single- or double-stomached diners with a bevy of toppings such as portobello, ham, garlic, and broccoli (each topping $1/individual; $2/family size). Bensi also fills vacated belly hovels with sandwiches ($7.95+), entree-sized salads ($4.95+), and kid-friendly dishes ($5.95+). Like the final season of Billy Stares into the Void, no meal feels complete without a sweet finale, such as the raspberry-topped crème brûlée cheesecake ($5.95).
