Don't let the outside appearance steer you away. This is one of those family owned, homemade pasta places. Quaint surroundings, with good food. The staff was extremely pleasant. Would definitely return

You would never know it from he outside but this place has what I would say is the best Italian food I have had since I lived in Houston - And i'm an Italian. We arrived during the week for dinner. The atmosphere is family owned business. It's hard to explain but it's a lot like what you would expect... More

My sister and I always look for unique places to take our kids to eat on our vacations. This place had excellent ratings everywhere we checked so we decided to give it a whirl. Our kids are 10, 8 and 4. The staff was very accommodating and the owner had them make homemade mac and cheese for our littlest one!... More

We are on our annual visit to Florida exploring all that it has to offer. We usually travel to the gulf coast but this year we decide to see what the east coast has to offer. Orlando is a tourist trap so we tried to steer clear. We are visiting the Saint Augustine area and all the history it has... More

What a find. My wife and I stumbled upon this restaurant for dessert after eating dinner at another establishment and found the gelato and desserts to be OUTSTANDING (and we've been to Italy). The very next night we returned for dinner, we were immediately recognized and welcomed by the owner, enjoyed stuffed mushrooms, shared a pasta dish, salads and once... More

I've been looking for a little authentic Italian restaurant since I moved to Florida from the North East where they were abundant. Couldn't find any worthwhile until Benedetto's. Carrie our server was lovely to talk to, and took wonderful care of us. We'll absolutely be visiting again on our next trip to Vilano Beach.
