“Excellent Meal-Best Italian On The Beach”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Absolutely wonderful. Although its interior is small, the food is authentic Italian. The aroma of Italian spices greet you immediately after walking in. The portions are generous & pricing more than reasonable. Great for friends and families with kids.

“I Get It Now!”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

Had to wonder about all the great reviews - so we ate there. Now I understand. What a wonderful gem of a place in Surfside Beach. The restaurant is small and because the food is so good you may have a wait for your table. They have the hardest working servers I think I have ever seen. The food, yep, the reviews were accurate. We started with the garlic knots and they were super. We also ordered a regular pizza with sausage, pepperoni and green peppers. The crust was perfect and the sauce had amazing flavor. My husband ordered spaghetti with meat sauce and we shared. That was some of the best sauce I have ever eaten. We ate until we were stuffed and still left with enough food for an entire lunch the next day. Both the pizza and spaghetti were yummy reheated. We saw other plates go by that looked incredible (lasagna, hero sandwiches and some pasta with meatballs and sausage). I think it may take a while to try all of Benito's creations. If you aren't a pizza lover, don't hesitate to eat here. You are definitely going to find a meal you love on the extensive menu. Absolutely worth the time and the prices are good as well.
