Excellent food and service. Veal parmesan was to die for. Good selections of wine, also. Beer and wine, only. Owners on premises.

This is a real gem , nestled in the middle of Anastasa Island . Authentic , from scratch Italian food 900 miles south of New York !
We had the Eggplant Parm and Michalina and it was fantastic ! Huge portions followed up by homemade cheesecake . Mareka was incredible as our server and the owners Jay and Robin were very friendly and courteous .

“Don't miss it!”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

While searching for lodging in St. Augustine, one reviewer on trip advisor strongly recommended Casa Benedetto's. The reviews for this small A-frame family restaurant sounded appealing. After a busy day, we headed south on A1A to find this jewel. It was quiet when we arrived and the owner shared stories of his family, the restaurant's history and future plans. The entrees are made to order and you can even hear them pounding the veal and chicken in the kitchen. The food was flavorful and the portions large enough that we took our desert home. Besides the variety and quality of the food, the true charm was the owner, his wife and our server who came by to chat and assure our food was satisfactory. If you like homestyle Italian cooking don't miss Casa Benedetto's.

“89 Miles”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

On the Saturday before Mother's Day, we searched on Trip Advisor for a special dining experience. Naturally, we gravitated toward Italian and were thrilled to find a small, family run restaurant a few miles south of St. Augustine on A1A. We spent the afternoon working up an appetite walking around the historic district (check out The Ancient Olive on King Street). We started with wine and, quite unusual for us, we opted for a couple of appetizers, Rice Balls and Mozzarella Caprice. We shared and thoroughly enjoyed. Dinner salads were next. For the main courses, we selected Fusilli Meatballs and Sausage with ricotta and an interesting pasta, and Eggplant Rollatini, and, of course, more wine! What a delightful experience. Out waitress, Mareka, was top notch. We enjoyed getting to know the proprietor, Mr. Tarantino. And I met his Mama in the kitchen ... all of 4 foot 2! We traveled 89 miles from Fernandina Beach for a special dining experience we and were not disappointed. We left with enough food for another meal! I rarely leave a tip exceeding 20%, but this turned out to be an exception. We will return and I feel certain the family will remember us!
