We have probably been there at least 24 times since they opened in December. We really don't go any place other since they are so close and the food is so good. The owners and staff have become good friends. Never, ever have we nothing but great food there -- something unusual in the area. David and Jane

Continues to push out great quality dishes. They make you feel like your at home without the preparation or clean up!! Service and food are both spectacular. NOT a fast food stop as they prepare when ordered. Great!!

We have been vacationing in Vilano Beach for several years and we went to Casa Benedetto's for dinner one night. The food was authentic and very good. We will be going back.

Nothing unique here. Pasta is heavily sauced and the selections are overpriced. The setting is quaint & colorful. Service that night was awkward. I think that the waiter was new.

We have been to this cute little neighborhood restaurant for both lunch and dinner and found it to exceed our expectations both times. The staff is friendly and helpful and the service is good. The pasta is cooked just right- al dente and side items like salads are fresh. The wine pours are generous and the ambiance is nice at... More

This is not the first time I've eaten at Casa Benedetto's, it is my favorite restaurant in St. Augustine. The food is the best Italian I've had in Florida, the owners are super nice, the wait staff is great and it's in a really nice area, right off the Vilano pier. I eat there every chance I get and I...

Living just around the corner, this is our favorite place to go for an authentic italian dinner - the lasagna is our choice almost every time. Owners and staff are very friendly.

Don't let the exterior of the art deco building throw you off...this is a real step into Italy...from the "Italian Gramma" who greeted us at the door to every morsel of food..this was a delight to my inner Italian Girl. My brother ordered the daily special Gorgonzola Chicken, after smelling one waft by to another table and he wasn't disappointed.... More
