This was our first visit to Casa Benedetto's and it is now tops on our list of "favorites". From the excellent service, quaint, eclectic atmosphere to the incredibly and freshly prepared food, it just doesn't get any better. AND, don't "pass" on the home made desserts; it's well worth the indulgence. From the freshly made hard crusted bread to the... More

We visited Casa Benedetto's based on the positive Trip Advisor reviews, and we are so glad we did. The restaurant has a very cool, sixties beach vibe from the outside, but inside is a small, local, family owned restaurant with some of the best Italian food I've ever had. I ordered the Chicken Parmesan, which was a huge portion, and... More

The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food is very good, and our waitress was very friendly and helpful. Tablecloths and candles - a nice extra. Great bread that was served piping hot! Good meatballs, and Spinach Florentine was really tasty. Too full for dessert, but would be good to go just for dessert and coffee... More

We visited St Augustine from Orlando and wanted a quality dinner after a day at the beach and shopping. The restaurant is as-advertised -- quaint, dated (in a good way), and in a marginal area. But that is what adds to the charm. The interior gives a family feel. I had the meatballs and pasta with fagioli soup. The soup... More

We went for dinner on a Friday night we have been here several times. We were seated immediately right next to the hostess station. No wait staff approached our table for a full 20 minutes. The owners asked if anyone had welcomed us but never offered us a water or anything. Instead they sat and watched as their over worked... More

We are sorry that our service was a little off due to having gotten hit by a high volume of customers coming in at the same time.I am quite sure you did not wait twenty minutes however. We were aware that the server assigned to you was a little behind in greeting you and did check with you about it.Jay... More

This little hole in the wall restaurant is DELICIOUS! It's doesn't look like much from the outside and that's the way I like it. I want the quality on my plate! The service was friendly, warm, welcoming. The food.... oh my goodness, it was sooo good. We wanted to go someplace we had never been. My husband found it here... More

We have been travelling and have not been home for some time. Saturday night we returned to Ponte Vedra Beach and visited Casa Benedetto. It was wonderful. The food was outstanding and the welcome that we received after an absence of weeks was returning to family. This is a special place.
