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

I recently moved to the St Augustine area and decided to take a drive on A1A and happened upon Casa Benedetto's. What an amazing dinner experience my first visit was... I will be back and often. First, the food was delicious and the portion was so big that I took more than half home for lunch the next day. The... More

We happened across casa Benedetto's on a weekend trip to St Augustine in August and found this great little place. Staff was very friendly and family run. The food was traditional Italian and was so home made you felt like you were eating their home. Food quality was top shelf. We had the veal Parmesan and shrimp fra Diavlo which... More

This is one of the best meals we had in St. Augustine. It's not a tourist spot, but very popular with the locals. The owner seems to know everyone, and the ambiance was very nice. It seems like the owners/cooks are from NYC, and their food is very authentic Italian. My husband's family is from Sorrento, Italy, and the meatballs... More

The Veal Sorrentino was superb. I could hear the veal being pounded back in the kitchen by the the grandmother cook from Italia I'm sure. The owners spend time with you like the Italian restaurants and nearly have dinner with you which is a fantastic experience. This is not only a fantastic meal it is a fantastic experience.

I am a resident of St. Augustine, many years. Yet my husband and I still enjoy dinners out in our beautiful city. This was my second visit, my husband's first. The service is warm homey friendly and above average. The owners are personable and treat their customers as though they were in their home...for that I give Casa Benedetto's above... More

First of all, Let me thank you for your wonderful comments. I'm sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with the Crapes Florentine that you chose. Crapes Florentine is a light dish filled with mild creamy ricotta cheese filling and a little spinach, and topped with a spinach in a garlic butter sauce. We would have been more than... More
