This restaurant has so many wonderful, glowing reviews over the past 6 months; we finally stopped in on an early Saturday evening. It is small and quaint. Go early if you want a seat. Party of 3. Service was efficient but not personable. It is very clear if you're known to the owners, you get attention. It is awkward if... More

The food here was not only delicious it came in huge portions. Each person I my party had a different meal and each were equally good. The vodka and Alfredo sauces were very rich and hearty. The two red sauces for the veal parm and spaghetti were delicious. The restaurant has limited seating however we were early enough on a... More

Was told about this little family owned restaurant by a friend. This is a great place. The food and service is top notch. Have never had homemade italian food this good. It is a very small and cozy restaurant. Well worth the drive if you don't live nearby. They did tell us that in December they will be moving up... More

Authentic Italian food, at least as authentic as a southern born gal knows! I've never been disappointed and the family is so nice. I think everything is home made, salads are fresh and the tortellini is worth every calorie. Not fancy but homey.

My wife and I celebrated he retirement by driving up to St. Augustine FL to have dinner at Casa Benedetto's. Yes it's worth the 2 hour drive from Orlando. This is our second time to this place and we have not been disappointed either time. The Italian food just just live you're in Brooklyn NY. I had the veal Parmesan... More

We always spend 1 or 2 nights at this little mom and pop authentic Italian restaurant. The food is terrific and you will be well tended to. Do know that during this winter, 2014, they will be moving to a location in the Vilano Beach area.

Thank you for your compliments on our food. We are surprised to hear that you thought our wine was really expensive? We dine out too and find that our wine prices are comparable with other establishments, and the quality and serving size exceeds most . We use only 750 bottles of imported Italian wine, no 1.5 litre bottles,jugs or boxes,... More

This restaurant was recommended by my sister and when we first drove up, I wasn't sure if I wanted to eat here. It's a little house that doesn't look all that appealing from the outside . We drive on and went somewhere else , but decided the next night to give it a try.... And I'm so glad we did.... More
