We are new fans of Casa Benedetto’s. From the moment we walked in, we knew this was the “real deal” by the way we were greeted by the husband owner. Later we enjoyed chatting with the “wife owner”. Our server, who just comes in to...work on Wednesday’s now, because she loves visiting the owners, made it her mission to check the recipes for my husband’s dairy allergy. We both had chicken dishes. The meat was fork tender and delicious. I had scallopini Marsala, and Bob had it with peppers, sausage, tomatoes and onions. We have enough left over for a lovely lunch today. We were also served a crisp romaine salad, with a lovely dressing, and pasta with our chicken. We hope to return on our way back to South Carolina, since they are not planning to open a restaurant there for us.More

Our server Tracy was phenomenal! She was fun energetic and eager to please! She gladly answered all our questions and was attentive to our needs. Bread is great (soft on the inside, flaky on the outside), meat sauce (cooked for 8 HOURS) was wonderful! Alfredo...was the BEST anyone in our party had every had. Desserts were all equally as impressive. We tried the cheesecake, tiramisu, cannoli, and mocha cake! Just happened to find it on google and decided to try during our vacation. We will definitely be coming back if we are ever here again (or maybe once more before we leave town).More

Everytime we've been here, I get a different dish. Everytime it's the best version of that dish, I've ever had. This place is the best kept secret in St. Augustine. The food, the service, the atmosphere, and the family are just fabulous! I could go...on and on about it, but go and find out for yourself. You will be happy you did!More

What a wonderful surprise to find this excellent Italian restaurant hidden at the back of a remote small shopping center south of Saint Augustine! After hearing of the good food via word of mouth, from two different people, we decided to give this place a...try. We were delighted with the Mom and Pop atmosphere, table set up and cloth napkins, and pace of preparation. The bread, butter and fresh tapenade were great! The salad came with a perfect oil and vinegar dressing. My wife had Chicken Parm and I had Manacotti and we had to share given we both loved the other's choice. The Tiramisu was second only to what we had in Italy! Don't miss this place!More

True Sicilian homemade Italian food. Everything is made fresh to order. Come hungry the portions are big and everything is extremely delicious. We ordered Chicken Parmesan and Chicken Alfredo shown in the pictures. Reasonably priced and the service is great. We had Allison as our...server and she was fabulous! If you are wanting great Italian food, you will not be disappointed.More

My wife and I had lunch here yesterday for the third time. It was perfect as always. Our waitress Jo Jo was very helpful and gave great recommendations. I had the soup instead of the salad and if you like seafood it was to die...for. It was like a Manhattan chowder with shrimp, flounder, calamari and other vegetables. This was the best soup I have ever eaten. The companato they bring with the bread is hard to describe but it is addictive. Do not miss this if you are ever there. My wife had her usual home made fettuccine alfredo with grilled chicken. It was excellent as was my lasagna. I can honestly say that was the best lunch I have ever had at a restaurant.More
