Everything about our experience here was very good. Service was excellent. The menu selections were few but well balanced to fit most pallets. the kitchen was quite accommodating in modifying and customizing dishes to our taste. The food was well prepared and quite good. This will be our choice for Italian in the North Myrtle Beach area.

Benny Rappa's occupies an older building that can't compare with the big money that chain restaurants put into their architecture and decor. To pass by or pull into the parking lot - it looks somewhat dated. (But well maintained) Turns out - that just doesn't matter. It is what's inside that counts, and Benny Rappa's delivers. GREAT honest to goodness... More

As a TRUE local in the NMB area, I had always heard wonderful things about Benny Rapas. After hearing 3 great things about it within a week I was excited when my friends informed me we would be having dinner there. Service was great! LED light menus and check presenters were definitely awesome and wonderful idea for any restaurant! However,... More

We're vacationing and chose Benny Rappa's for our anniversary dinner. Great choice. We went early and enjoyed the entire experience. We had eggplant and lasagna. Both delicious. The restaurant has great atmosphere and is well decorated. Benny said they just expanded and his custom wine cellar is just cool. Nice wine list. Cortney was our server and really did a... More

We have been to Benny Rappa's many times and it never disappoints. Great food, great service, cozy atmosphere. Menu changes daily and always has great special dishes. Will willingly accmodate requests for items not on that day's menu as well. Love this place!

A locally owned authentic italian restaurant in a jungle of chain locations. Everything is freshly prepared and as you like it. They even have gluten free pasta if you wish. A real plus for us is they will prepare a lunch portion anytime and includea nice salad for just a bit more. The Italian loaf dripping with hot butter and... More
