Greatest restaurant I've been to in years. I had the eggplant rollitini and still can't get over it. Little restaurant but great atmosphere. Not for big groups because theres only one cook, but GREAT for families and dates. Great vegetarian options too!

Fabulous food and the best "Gravy" ever!!!! Definitely the best Italian food in the area...chicken francese is wonderful along with their meatballs. I have never had a bad meal here.

I just love this restaurant. Have been to great Italian restaurants all over the country, including NYC, but I wouldn't trade this little restaurant for any of them. The service, the food, the authenticity, the creativeness, the ambiance, the friendliness, the desire to please. It has it all. Just a wonderful culinary experience of the highest degree. Support it!

...at Casa Benedetto's. My wife and I visited on recomendation from a couple of local people and were so glad we came. Authentic Italian, not fake Italian like you get at Olive Garden or Carraba's. I had the lasagna and it was delicious. My wife had the veal picatta and it was fantastic. Canoli's for desert capped off our 'real' Italian experience. Service was great and we had a nice chat with both Robyn and Jay afterwards. Geat people. We are from NY and HIGHLY recommend this restaurant if you want great 'real' Italian food. Don't miss it!!!!!

...have I had more delicious and authentic Sicilian food!

The owners are the sweetest friendliest people and the place itself is cozy, quaint and delightful - the charm of the place is evident the minute you walk in the door.

The fried calamari had a light batter, perfectly cooked and was amazing. The pasta fagoli was delicious and the veal was spot-on...typically I don't order veal in a restaurant because when it's not cooked just right, it's terrible. They cooked it perfectly and it melted in my mouth. The dessert - amaretto ricotta pound cake was also to die for.

My father and his wife live in the area, and I can't wait to book my next trip so that I can come here again. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I definitely would. Absolutely not to miss!
