Among the plethora of cafes/taverns sprinkled along SR A1A, some good, some not so good, Casa Benedetto's Italian Caffe is truly a standout. Robyn and Jay Tarantino offer something unique; i.e., a truly fine dining experience.Seating capacity is kept at about 20 in order to offer each diner individualized, caring service. This is not the place for a "fast-foodie." A... More

The home mades sauces were delicious and the dishes authentic! The portions were more than generous. The eggplant parmesan and the veal parmesan were mouth-watering The proprieters greeted us warmly... More

Then this is where you need to dine if you are in the Crescent Beach area between St. Augustine and Palm Coast. All the dishes are prepared to order, that takes a little more time but you can taste the difference! The service has always been great here and this nice little place has outdoor seating if you would like.... More

My wife and I have eaten at casa's Benedetto's quite a few times and we are never disappointed. On this trip we split an order of calamari and stuffed mushrooms for our appetizers. My wife had the special of the night which was the stuffed pork chops, which she very much devoured. My choice for this trip was the Bettys... More

Scrumptious delight from start to finish. A choice of wines, flavorful shrimp bisque, Parmesan dishes like eggplant, veal, and chicken, in a long-simmered italian sauce that creates the most savory delight, followed by home-made apple pie, tiramisu, chocolate mocha cake, and so much more, left us with smiling stomachs. The atmosphere is homey, the service was impeccable, the owners warmly... More

A friend highly recommended this restaurant to us, and Casa Benedetto's did not disappoint. We had an amazing meal and the service was excellent. This restaurant is old school Italian, where they make everything from scratch and the sauces are to die for. A great Saturday night adventure that was well worth the drive. The guys had veal dishes and... More

My gf and I were heading out to St. Augustine to do an ghost tour, we had time to visit a restaurant, we found this place on the internet & decided to come here. The place is literally the epitome of an Mom and Pop place, very small restaurant but it was still very nice. The restaurant had a nice... More

This small establishment is not to be missed. If you're looking for old school Italian food, like Nona used to make, then this is the place for you. You can tell that the sauce simmers for hours, the veal is expertly pounded and there is a lot of love in this food. My favorite is the braciole! It is made... More
