Continental Divide went by the wayside and now there is a new pizza place in its spot on Main Street. For those from Blacksburg, they’ll be familiar with what Benny Ventano’s brings to the table. What the bring to the table is massive pizza as in 28″ of pizza goodness or a Virginia Slice which is cut from that massive pizza resulting as you would guess a massive slice.
That’s pretty much all they do, pizza. Five bucks will get you a slice and $38 a whole pizza.
This is the 20th location of a Benny. They’re all named a variation of Benny. The one in Blacksburg is Benny Marzano’s. As for the Fan’s Benny Ventano’s there is a reason for the name.
Building upon the original Benedito’s persona, “Ventano’s” represents the patient, disciplined side of Benny. Ventano loosely means fan, relating to Richmond’s Fan District, and plays of venti, meaning twenty, as this is our 20thBenny’s location. What does this have to do with patience? Well, Richmond was going to be our 5th location, and then 8th, 13th, 16th …. but it was never meant to be… until now!
We look forward to our opening this Winter 2019, so we can finally bring our 28″ pizza to the great capitol of the greatest state in the country!
