We did not expect to find a restaurant of this quality in Myrtle Beach. We got in on Saturday and didn't want to go too far from the condo. I spotted this place and had read other reviews, so we pulled in. Turns out Saturday is check in day, so they don't always get so busy. We happened to walk... More

A small, menu changed daily establishment that created delicious food with excellent service. After about 20 years of visiting the area, this remains one of the top 3 must visit places. They have great appetizers, entrees and amazing desserts. The service is always spot on. Last visit we had the stuffed pepper appetizer, which we also got last time we... More

Benny Rappa's is a well-known jewel among locals and a great "find" for visitors. Every dish is prepared from scratch, and always spot-on. More, the chef will prepare dishes that are not on the menu upon request--no fuss, no extra charges. The service is always tops and the bar is as good as any. Benny and his staff are there... More

We had a nice dinner here on a busy weekend evening. We did have reservations and our table was waiting when we arrived. Both our veal and chicken dishes were excellent as was the Sangria.

This place has the feel of a traditional NYC Italian place without the Mafia. I started with a Bloody Mary, something I've had a taste for all week. Good flavor but they brought some hot sauce to spice it up perfectly. I had the scallops which were excellent. My buddy had lasagna which he loved. Service was excellent. Sorry, no... More

Our group ordered the Lasagna and the Chicken Sorrento w/ breaded eggplant and none of us were disappointed with our choices. Their drink of the day was a grapefruit margarita and those were fabulous too. The best part of the meal though was their loaves of garlic bread, which are sold A la Carte, but worth every dollar spent! I'd... More

Visited several times before. This visit was nothing like former ones. Portions smaller and quality less. Wife had dish with scallops and pasta. Scallops small and sauce not good. I have a chicken and pasta item. Chicken thin and over cooked. Most of both meals left on plate.
