Benedetto is a high-end Italian restaurant with white tablecloths, a sommelier, and a menu featuring things like orange blossom ricotta. For as fancy as this Harvard Square spot is though, the menu is priced pretty reasonably. The crudo is great, and we’re big fans of the strozzapreti. Come here in the summer when they open up a nice patio in the courtyard of the Charles Hotel.
