We've been there for both lunch and dinner. Both are excellent. Fresh homemade pasta. Easy drive from Saint Augustine.

From the outside, this looks like a run down restaurant. Inside, it's adorable! The decorations are very homey, with actual tablecloths on the tables! We got here just after it opened, and we were the only ones here, on a Wednesday at noon. Our waitress Aspen was great! I got the lunch portion of chicken parmigiana--delicious and came with a...

I arrived at Casa Benedetto on a Wednesday about 4 pm, the place was empty and the curve appeal was bad. I was there with friends and family and they look at me kind of strange, I knew right away they didn't like the look of the place. I'M all about the food, and all the reviews said, that the... More

The reason for just a "Very Good" Rating instead of and "Excellent" rating is for the lack of servers. My wife and I stopped in for lunch and found that there was only one server working for the whole restaurant. It was quite busy and the server was doing her best to keep up with the traffic. Although the food... More

Thank you for dining with us at Casa Benedetto's. We normally are not very busy during the early part of the day and one server is usually more than adequate to cover the lunch time tables. It happens occasionally that we get busy all at once and we are sorry that you experienced this. I was helping to buss tables... More

The penne ala vodka is to die for. Get it with breaded chicken, you will not be disappointed. The place is decorated with lots of antiques and trinkets to give it a homey feel and Frank Sinatra is always on the playlist to help set just the right mood. This restaurant used to be in Crescent Beach close to where... More
