Love this place. Fine Italian food. Place is not large. Make sure you make reservations. Staff is very accommodating. Sister-in-law wanted chicken marsala (which wasn't on menu). They said no problem. I had a halibut dish that was fantastic They don't have the basic dishes on menu (but as... read more

Last night in town on our "golf" vacation. Wanted to have a nice dinner and had heard good things so we decided to try it. Everything we ate that evening was delicious from the appetizers to the desserts. Nice wine selections also. The place is small but we were comfortable. Our waitress was great. We will definately be going back... More

This is my third time at Benny Rappas and the food is wonderful! But after last night it may be my last. I had called the night before for a reservation and upon arrival we we're seated in the bar area which would have been fine but the noise was unbearable!!! This is a small restaurant and really needs to... More

Came here solo at 7pm on a Thursday night knowing the food would be tasty but hoping not to feel weird for being by myself (I'm female, by the way). Sat at the last open seat at the bar, after which Alya made my meal a truly great experience. When I mentioned hoping for a pink sauce while looking over... More

We arrive about 10 minutes early for our reservation and were seated immediately. Our waitress had a big smile and was very attentive. This was our first visit based on a NMB friend's recommendation that this was the best Italian at the beach. We discovered that the menu changes daily but were happy with what we found. Our party had... More

There were 9 of us here for a late dinner. The restaurant is small but we were seated immediately without reservations. A couple of the "seniors" we're permitted to order from the kids menu (I being one of them). Loved the pasta fettuccini I ordered. The portion was still large enough that I couldn't finish and brought half of it... More

Great food and great service! They change there menu every day but they allow you to order most classic italian meals. I had the chicken Marsala and my daughter (12 years old) had the chicken parm!

Not up to the excellence of other Italian restaurants in town. High prices and small portions plus mediocre flavor make for a negative impression. No bread or dipping oil upon greeting, sharing price, loud atmosphere, service a bit slow - won't be returning.

This place was recommended and was a winner. I liked the atmosphere because it was inviting and not too loud. The waitress was very attentive and smiled continuously. She offered some nice suggestions and checked on the table frequently. The food was plentiful and I had enough to take with me to eat on the beach. I found that restaurants... More

We love this place as Benny puts his signature on every dish, however you want it prepared, he can and will do it. When Benny is there, the food is at it's best; from the Calamari to the Cannoli, it's a beautiful thing. We return each month when we come to NMB. Maria is great and we ask for her... More
