This is the best Italian food I’ve had in Florida since moving to Florida (I’ve been here 4 years). Carrie was wonderful, as was the whole staff. They care about the food and service a lot. That ravioli should be on the menu not just...a special.More

The Italian sauce is the best I’ve ever had, and I have had many sauces in my lifetime! My husband had the Chicken Parmesan and I had an eggplant dish. Food and service were exceptional! All homemade and made to order. Carrie was an excellent...server who ensured that our dishes were exactly what we wanted. We live in Sarasota, but this restaurant is worth the trip across the state! We will be back!More

(Please note that the location has moved off the island to US!) This is a hidden gem. Best Italian food. Family run, they pay attention to details and are very dedicated to making sure their diners have a wonderful experience. I am gluten intolerant and...they were very accommodating to my needs (they have noodles!). Don't miss this place!! It's in the Winn Dixie shopping center - its location is a little deceiving - this is very high quality food!! Great service and atmosphere as well.More

I had lunch today at Casa Benedetto's Ristorante today. It was my first time there and I will definitely be returning soon. I went because they had rice balls as an appetizer and wanted to see how they were. They were amazing, the sauce that...accompanied them was delicious. Fresh bread was served with an herb butter and also an eggplant dipping sauce. I liked that sauce so much I think I could have just had the sauce and bread and been happy. We ordered eggplant parmigiana. Mine with angel hair pasta and my friend had penne. All dishes are made as ordered so expect to wait a short while. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. We both had leftovers. The server, Carrie was friendly and attentive. She even boxed the leftovers for us instead of just giving us boxes. I highly recommend this restaurant.More

Our visit to Casa Benedetto's was excellent. Carrie, our server, was gracious and attentive. She provided excellent recommendations for making our lunch the best possible. The warm Italian bread with caponata eggplant dipping sauce was superb. We had chicken and eggplant parmigiana was excellent. The...Sicilian marinara sauce was superb.

Not easy to find, not very large and they do not do reservations but figure out a way because it is worth it. The best food we had during our 3 weeks in Florida. Carrie our service person was as great as the food. Prices...were reasonable and quantities were more than you can eat. Go hungry and enjoy the experience like we did.More

We totally enjoyed the ambiance, food, service and the owners who were on site. The birds were another attraction that enhanced the experience. Our waitress, Carrie, was personable, efficient, friendly and overall top notch. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. This...was by far the best place we ate while in St Augustine….definitely worth the drive.More

What a wonderful surprise this place is! It is hidden at the end of a new plaza, and we almost missed it. It's the best food we've had in St. Augustine--probably anywhere! The marinara sauce is wonderful, as is the eggplant parmesan and the eggplant...tapenade we tried. The atmosphere is just what you'd imagine for a mid-century Italian restaurant. We loved it!More

Carrie was our waitress and she did an excellent job explaining the specials, sauces used and getting our drinks! We had a pleasant evening with friends catching up. My meatballs were juicey and plump. The sauce not over powering, but a savory sauce indeed. Highly...recommend this quaint little Italian restaurant! Nice to go eat with no tv to distract from the conversation. ❤️❤️More

Thank you. We are happy to hear how much you enjoyed your visit! We also prefer to dine where there are no tv's to take away from the experience. Meals should be time to enjoy chatting with friends and family-the old fashioned way!!!!

We had heard a lot about this place, so thought we would try it. It is a little off the beaten path, but boy was it worth it. The service was both friendly and attentive, and the food was outstanding. but what we really appreciated...was that nothing felt rushed. There was an appropriate time between the wine. salad. entree, and dessert. That made the experience even more enjoyable. Would highly recommend.More
