Eggplant Parm was excellent and serving generous. Salad was made with very fresh greens/tomatoes. Their shrimp scampi is alway wonderful. My husband had angel hair pasta with their home made marinara sauce. Super size serving. Absolutely delicious Italian-made coconut cake. Well worth your stop for an authentic Italian meal.

Quaint little A frame on A1A in Crescent beach/ St Augustine beach. Authentic Italian food. The food was fresh and made to order. The pasta fagioli was very good just like home! From the appetizers to the dessert the meal was down home quality. Seating is limited so call ahead.

This is my 6th time coming here. The food is awesome but the decor needs a major overhaul. I even saw the owners have to send people away because the house was packed--with only 7 tables! My shrimp scampi was very good, however the lemon was rather potent. The cannoli were awesome though and made up for it! Our server... More

My fiance and I were staying for a week in the area, and had researched local restaurants. We picked out Casa Benedetto's because of the reviews and the pictures. We were surprised by how small the interior really is, but that intimacy and warmth contributed to a unique and marvelous experience! Her Aunt Betty's manicotti and my lasagna were cooked... More

The food and service were great. The decor is like early grandmother with stuffed stashed all over the place. Just an a-frame house converted to an eating place. Good vegetarian selections and very tasty. The cannoli were very tasty. Cramped, but great food.

4-16-14 Took my wife and two teenage boys here for dinner while in St Augustine this evening because Trip Advisor and reviews were so good. I loved the idea of a locally owned, home cooked Italian meal. Very small and quaint little restaurant. I like that too. And with the exception of my wife's Pasta Prima Vera (bland), the food...

We are so sorry that you felt neglected on your visit to Casa Benedetto's last evening. WE try to give exceptional service to all our guests. You came in early when the servers are prepping for the evening as well as taking care of guests, so your server may not have visited your table as much as usual. Jay &... More

I was recently able to enjoy the pleasure of another excellent home made meal at Casa Benedetto's. I cannot emphasize enough just what a diamond in the rough this establishment is. The owners are sincere and affable, the servers are attentive and helpful and the meals are incredible. By now I have been able to try almost everything off of... More

Went to South St. Augustine for a short holiday recently. After dropping off our bags at our lodge we decided to drive into town and find something to eat. We noticed Casa Benedetto's little A-frame as we drove by and figured that since it was already after 8 p.m. and we had no idea how long restaurants stayed open in... More
