Excellent find

We were staying in St Augustine and felt like pasta so looked on Trip Advisor and found this place which was across the bridge and closer to Ocean. Near a Publix and Hampton Inn. It certainly looked like an old place from the outside and plenty of parking out front. Service was good and the two... read more

From a warm greeting at the door this is the type of restaurant where you feel like family. The warm bread, main entrees and delicious deserts make this a place you'll want to return to. Our server Carrie was especially helpful in selecting a wine.

My husband and I are visiting St. Augustine for a few days. We read the reviews and decided to give it a try. We enjoyed the white clam sauce pasta and a large lovely plate of mussels. Everything was served hot and very tasty! There was plenty of bread for the delicate sauce. Service was perfect! Friendly owner came by... More

This restaurant is not to be missed! The food is absolutely delicious. I ordered the homemade gnocchi with sausage and tomato sauce and it was perfect. The pasta was firm not "mushy" and the potato flavor was evident throughout. The sausage was tasty with no fillers; just wholesome meat! Husband had the eggplant parmigiana which was cooked to perfection with... More

We were referred to this restaurant by a previous guest at the accommodation we are staying in at Crescent Beach. It was a 25 minute ride but was definitely worth it. The pasta was homemade and tasted as good as the homemade pasta we make ourself. The shrimp, salad and appetizer were fantastic. The price was reasonable. Frank and Dianne... More

I had visited Casa Benedetto's a couple of years ago when it was located near Crescent Beach. I am quite pleased that it is now on Vilano Beach (near the pier). Excellent food, excellent wine list, and outstanding service. Atmosphere and ambiance are lovely. Wonderful place to dine.

Being of Italian descent and used to homemade family dinners it's hard to find a Italian resteraunt that lives up to my expectations. That being said, Casa Benedetto's made me feel like I was sitting at my great grandmothers table. From the atmosphere to the food I could not have been happier! I recommend to anyone looking for a filling... More

My family and I enjoyed three delightful meals at Casa Benedetto at the end of February, two dinners and one lunch. We are snowbirds and arrived in December but only discovered the restaurant at the end of our stay. We will be back next year! The restaurant is divided into several dining rooms. Each has its own theme and ambiance....all... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this beautiful review! We apologize about the quality of your caesar salad. Sometimes during winter months the quality of produce can vary tremendously and we have to work with what is sent to us by our produce supplier. Our staff tries their best to make the best salad possible, but... More

Our second visit to the Vilano Beach restaurant and our fourth to Benedettos. We enjoyed the food every time. We went with our Super Club and it seemed everyone was very happy. I had the Flounder Francese which was perfect. My husband said he could eat their Lasagne every night of his life. The bread was wonderful and so was... More

As my three year old would say, "Tasty, yummy tummy". Bread was crunchy and hot just the way you want it served with garlic butter and carponata. Perfectly made and a great way to start our meal. Calamari and baked clams were made perfectly. My 3 and 4 year old girls loved their angel hair and meat balls. I had... More
