The Benvenuto Monza Gourmet Group was created in September 2019 to bring together people who enjoy eating out, particularly trying new flavours, savouring food, going for quality and price rather than quantity and/or merely price and liking dining out in new places occasionally. At present we have 15 members of assorted nationalities (only English is spoken) and anyone can join. We have met several times and tried restaurants in Monza and  the environs.  We usually try and make a date once a month, either for lunch or dinner – so far we have had groups of 6 – 8 people.  Each participant is asked to fill out a questionnaire following their meal so an overall judgement can be drawn up about the location, based on the food, the service, the general atmosphere and the ratio quality/price.  The results are then amalgamated into a review in English for Tripadvisor, published under the Benvenuto name.
