Fantastic Italian food, just like grandma used to make. We had vegetable lasagna and chicken cacciatore. Perfect after a busy day walking through the old town. We had enough left-overs for another meal - and it was just as good the second night. The restaurant looks like a diner, so not the setting for a romantic dinner.

Carrie, our waitress, was the very best! She did an excellent job & was very friendly. My husband & I had lunch there. I would highly recommend to try this place. You will not be sorry. Prices are very reasonable & food very good.

This was a diamond in the rough. We actually were looking for another restaurant and someone suggested this one. It was cozy and warm and you immediately got the feeling that the staff and owner cared about your experience there. I had eggplant parmigiana and it was exquisite. It was accompanied by ziti with marinara sauce and a salad. The... More

I loved this little place. The shrimp was to die for and the wine was so on target for our meal and I would absolutely go again! The little man that owned or ran the place made me feel I was in Italy!

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
