Will be dreaming of the garlic bread and thinking about my next visit to Benny Rappa's. We had the shrimp ravioli in lobster sauce and have been ruined for chain Italian restaurants forever!! Will I get the same meal or try something else is the only question I have! The menu changes every night too. Fantastic!!!

Excellent Italian food. Pretty close to Moms!!! Went early on a Saturday night, but would recommend u make reservations cause by the time we left, it was really crowded. Great pasta, & the Cannoli for dessert was to die for. Alittle pricey, but well worth it , Nice for a special occasion.

This was our second time dining at Benny Rappa's. The food is delicious and the service is great. I love their daily changing chalkboard menu and the fact that they will make any Italian dish you desire.... even if it isn't on the menu! The sausage stuffed peppers are so good we ordered two servings. Make a reservation during the... More

I am always surprised when I see this isn't at the top of the listings. A friend turned me onto Benny's. about a year ago and it is my only must dine at least once place when I am in town. This past visit I brought my son and a golfing buddy and they became instant fans as well. The... More

after being in North Myrtle Beach 6 months we finally tried this restaurant. We initially went in for an early cocktail...the bar area is small but nice (as is the whole restaurant) we decided to stay for dinner and on a Friday night were very lucky to get a table ( you should make reservations on FRI/SAT night or get...

This was my second visit to Benny Rappa's and both times it was delicious. FWe chose the stuffed bell pepper appetizer which was great and different from any appetizer I've had before, even in Italian restaurants. Yellow bell peppers stuffed with sausage and just enough spice that it didn't burn your mouth. For my entree' I chose the Eggplant Parmigiana... More

My family was vacationing in North Myrtle Beach. We were missing our favorite Italian restaurant back home. We spotted Benny Rappa's and decided to try it. What a great place! Best red clam sauce I've ever had. We wish we lived in North Myrtle Beach. We have a new favorite Italian restaurant!

My son and I visit the beach at least once a year, and this is a must for our trip. We always go to Benny's for dinner at least once, sometimes if we are lucky we also squeeze in a lunch! The food is freshly prepared from a menu that changes daily. You can also ask for items not on... More

I am a bit of an Italian food snob and drove by this place for years because I thought it looked "touristy" from the road. Based upon a recommendation we tried it last night and were blown away (and I'm ticked that I've missed it all these years!). The menu changes everdday based upon ingredients available and if you don't... More

The food and service are, without question the best in all of Myrtle Beach. The bread is worth every penny(1.99). I told Benny he should charge twice the amount. The service is second to none. The staff knows the menu and the daily specials. The wine list goes with everything else, 5 Stars.
