My husband and I moved to St Augustine in October and we are trying new restaurants weekly. This one proved to be a gem. It is quaint and filled with Italian charm. The food was outstanding. Absolutely the freshest salad I have ever had in a restaurant. There is a nice wine list and the chicken parm to die for... More

We are sorry that you were not impressed with your visit. As you didn't mention what menu items you tried we obviously cannot learn anything constructive from this review. Apparantly you visited at a not so busy time if you found my husband sitting, he is usually running around seating guests and stopping by each table to make sure everyone... More

I went to Casa Benedetto for dinner. I ordered the Chicken Franchaise for dinner with a side of Angel Hair Pasta. It came with warm bread, herb butter and a compote of tomato, olives and onion that was very nice. My first course was a nice but luke warm pasta fagioli soup. The main course Chicken was uneventful, barely any... More

We were informed that the bread is actually made in New York City and shipped fresh here to this restaurant and then they finish the baking it was... More

We decided on this restaurant as it had pretty good reviews, and we wanted an excuse to see the island. It turned out to be a good choice. Two of us had their flounder over a bed of spinach, with a side of pasta, one had lasagna and one had spaghetti and meatballs. There was bread for the table and... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the Tripadvisor community . We are glad to hear that you thought it was a good choice. Everyone has a different preference as to the amount of sauce they enjoy on their pasta. Most agree it should be covered but not swimming in it. Perhaps yours needed more sauce,... More
