Everything is made from scratch but is well worth the wait if there is one. Even the bread is baked fresh, salad dressings were all home made. Delicious from appetizer to dessert.

A little pricey for the atmosphere. Warning No No credit cards which is kind of silly with dinner plates costing 15 to 28 dollars and apps around $10 each. We started with stuffed clams. They work out to be $1.50 each and are not stuffed clams but steamed sized clams baked and coated with a lot of butter. Not the... More

We are surprised that you did not enjoy your meal at CasaBenedettos.Our policy of accepting only debit cards rather than credit cards was instituted in an effort to keep our expense dollars into quality ingredients and out of the hands of greedy merchant processors. This policy is posted on our door and in several locations in the restaurant as well... More

Excellent food, charming atmosphere, attentive staff. You won't be disappointed. We have followed them from 2 other locations. This location is about 25 miles from where we live, but well worth the trip. If you enjoy authentic Italian food, this is one of the best in North East Florida.

My husband and I dined at Casa Benedetto this evening, after reading the rave reviews on Trip Advisor. Everything was incredible! Our server was Anthony, and he went out of his way to make sure we had a wonderful experience. The bread was fresh from the oven with a tasty caponata. We ordered the calamari and stuffed mushrooms for appetizers,... More

Oh my god. Charmingly authentic. Rich. Wonderful. We had a great dining experience. Perfectly affordable and high quality food. We are both Italian and have traveled in Italy. We have been searching for authentic Italian and have struck out quite a bit, but if I lived in St. Augustine I would eat here at least once a week. Great decor,... More

This is an unexpected treasure. We were very pleased with our meal. Everything is made from scratch and truly delicious. We dined on salmon with dill sauce that was served with fresh grilled vegetables and of course bread. We finished with the most wonderful bread pudding I have ever had. They had many delicious deserts to choose from including homemade... More

We make it a point to always visit Casa Benedetto's when we are in Florida. Since we last visited, they have moved to a larger (and nicer) location. The food was excellent as expected and the service was also good. Two things to realize before going: 1) they don't accept credit cards. There is a sign up when you walk... More

Several friends recommended that we try this restaurant, and we were so glad they did. It is the best Italian meal we have had in Northeast Florida. Authentic Italian, family run. Great service and not to expensive. The restaurant is decorated with different small rooms that give the feel like you are in someone's house. They also have outside seating... More
