Our group of seven celebrated a birthday last evening at Casa Benedetto's Restaurant. What an unexpected pleasure! The service was superior, the staff was warm and friendly, and all of our food was outstanding! Mama even baked a birthday cake for our guest of honor! To look at the restaurant from the exterior you would not expect such a pleasant... More

My family had a wonderful time tonight, great food and even better service. Our server Carrie had us laughing the entire time and was knowledgeable on the menu and very attentive to our table. The owners checked on our table several times, it is a small gesture that made everything even more enjoyable. The quality of the ingredients made all... More

My husband and I enjoyed our food and our service was excellent. My husband was on the hunt for veal and a good Italian restaurant. We live in the area and decided to give Casa Benedetto's a try, as we've driven by it several times. He loved his dinner and raved about the sauce (he's Italian). I had the Chicken... More

We were looking forward to having a great Italian meal in a cozy, family oriented restaurant but we were very disappointed. The texture of my flounder was mealy and mushy and hardly tasted like a fresh fish, despite the fact the waiter said it was before I ordered it. In addition, it sat in an unappetizing pool of oil and... More

We are sorry to hear you were not pleased with the selections you made on this visit to CasaBenedetto's. Flounder Florentine is a dish that many guests love, and many have not loved. Flounder is a soft fish and can tend to come a little mushy when sautéed. Done with the xtravirgin olive oil, spinach ,butterand garlic sauce, it may... More
