I love Benny Rappas. I visit myrtle Beach every summer and this is always the restaurant I choose on my turn. The restaurant is really cute inside and the service is good. They have a chalkboard menu that changes nightly and the food is always amazing. The menu has limited options but you can request any standard italian dishes and... More

Authentic Italian in N. Myrtle. Menu changes daily but is always excellent. Must have a reservation for Friday or Saturday nights. We had Linguine with red clam sauce, gnocchi, chicken sorrento and bruschetta - all were amazing. Service is a little slow but it is a very busy place. Recommend highly!

We've been hearing a lot about this small (seats 70) spot since we moved to the area a few months ago. Our craving for "Italian" was fulfilled. The portions are perfect. You won't go home stuffed nor will you go home hungry. In fact, I'll bet you'll have room for dessert. The menu here changes daily, however if there is... More

Girlfriend and I went here as we were recommended by another couple and it was fantastic food, service and an always rotating menu that specializes in the Italian classics.

If you find yourself in myrtle beach, be sure to visit Benny Rappa's. The atmosphere, friendliness and fantastic food bring me back to my hometown Italian roots! This is real, old school Italian cooking. The menu changes often and if you want something that's not in the menu, don't worry, the chef will make it for you. It's a small... More

We tried togeet in here last year but they were booked. I called way ahead of time and got a reservation. I had the chicken with eggplant and my husband had the veal. we licked our plates. The service was excellent. I will say I am a food snob and this was one of the best meals I have had... More

The food was pretty good I've had worse I've had better. The only downfall of that restaurant that it had a strange smell of cats. No joke.

I must say, I love the Sinatra playing on the radio, but could not hear it over the noise. I loved the awesome murals and the daily changing menus idea, but too noisy to enjoy. It was incredibly small for the number of patrons that get squeezed in there. I loved the light up menus, but too big to really... More

This place is fantastic. New menu daily. Eggplant bruschetta was to die for. Veal dish was fabulous and very flavorful. Great wine selection. Don't miss this opportunity when in North Myrtle.
