Great Italian restaurant

Booked a table at this restaurant restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent, the wine list was good, and the overall experience was good. Very friendly staff who was quite knowledgeable about menu items. .

Loved the small restaurant with big attention to pleasing the customer. My husband and I did make a reservation earlier in the day which I recommend because this place is popular. The service, wine by the glass selection, food and atmosphere was wonderful.

The food was great and the servers were great. Needs to be more larger not enough tables. Had no reservation but they still was able to get in a quick time. I had the pork chop meal that was amazing. My wife had a scallop pasta meal she said it was the best. It was not to hard to find... More

Went to Benny Rappa's for the first time last week with a group of neighbors. Small place will impeccable service. A bit in the pricey side with a two-page lighted menu. Face it, the problem with so many restaurants with menus that run 10-20 pages is that you have too many choices. Smaller is better. Food was excellent and portions... More

We were passing thru N. Myrtle and found this restaurant recommended by several travel services. With no reservations, we ended up eating at the bar. The service there was at least as good as at tables, and the servers were very prompt and attentive. Salads were very fresh. I had the lobster ravioli, which was very fully stuffed into fresh...

This place is the best for true Italian cuisine. If you don't see what you like on the board, ask and they will prepare it. The atmosphere is very quaint and cozy. As with most Italian restaurants, it can get a bit noisy when busy, but you won't notice so much, due to the fact you will be enjoying such... More

I have passed this resturant many times. Small tables outside with ashtrays on their tables. There were only about 4 tables. I figured, this is quaint but not really worth the time since there are so many other tried and true Italian places that are calling me. For our last night in North Myrtle Beach, our friends treated us and... More

This place looks like a little hole in the wall, but don't drive by! Food was delicious and service attentive. The menu is different daily, but they will prepare any Italian dish for which they have the ingredients. I went with the on the menu chicken saltimbocca, and it did not disappoint. The homemade sangria was absolutely delicious, and the... More
