Pizza is very good and also their canolis and deserts but other things on their menu are not very pleasing. When I tried this place for the first time it was so good we came back again. The next time we took the food to go and we ordered calamari and it was over salted and tasted undercooked and dry... More

Okay, it's in this little strip mall next to this colossal movie theater, but the food, totally awesome. The place is charming and inviting. my server ( Renata ) was friendly and attentive. I highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed.

We had Gnocci Sorrentina & Cheese Tortellini Alla Pana - and better Italian meals we've rarely experienced. The Garlic Knot rolls were beyond fabulous. Service by Renata was both attentive and utterly charming. If we lived in Jax, we would probably be here at least weekly - but at least we were able to enjoy it while vacationing here. YUM!

Absolutely delicious! I'm so glad the original owner is back! Way to go Benny! Excellent service and delicious food. Very authentic. I would definitely visit or other restaurant owened by the same owner Bella Vita. Both are fabulous.

They closed and I was sad till I noticed people working inside. I knocked on the door and was greeted by Benny the original owner. He said to stop back on the 9th so here I am enjoying the great lunch buffet only $7.99 fresh hot and cold stations

We are in search of a nice Italian place to dine in Jacksonville, and keep driving by Benito's on Phillips. This is so close to where we live, we thought this would be a match made in heaven. The large sign out front states they're open 7 days a week and with a full bar. How wonderful! We passed by... More

We have been visiting at Benito's for a couple years now. It's one of those restaurants you can count on for super good, large portion meals and you have the option of keeping the starches down with a selection of veggie sides so you can have pasta free meals (not that the pasta is something to forgo by any stretch...

Located in a shopping strip, this is not a stand alone restaurant and can easily be overlooked. We went there for lunch on a Friday. We got there early and the place was not busy at all, although it did pick up. My husband and I both had the buffet, and it was great. I think it was 7.95 or... More

Benito's is one of the places we go out to on a regular basis as a family. We usually always end up ordering a pizza and the Fresh Mozzarella Di Buffalo as an app. The Mozzarella Di Buffalo is pretty much bruschetta - each time we've ordered it, the mozzarella has been fresh. Yeah, ordering bruschetta and then pizza is... More
