Food cooked individually for each guest. Had the sausage and peppers with penne pasta and house say. Tiramisu for dessert excellent and they now take debit cards as well as cash

My eggplant parmigiana was fabulous & our waitress Carrie provided excellent friendly service. The menu provided many excellent Italian food choices. We enjoyed our desserts too.

The food was excellent. What a nice restaurant. Our waitress, Carrie, was a gem. I give her an A+. They were very busy that night. We did not have to wait long to eat. There were four of us. We each ordered a different item on the menu. What flavor. Each and every bite was amazing. We are from Pittsburgh,... More

The fettuccine alfredo was to die for, the chicken parmigiana was amazing, and so was the veal parmigiana. This was nothing like I've ever had before. Also, our waitress Carrie was the best waitress I've had in a while!

A bit difficult to find since the GPS led us there via a strip mall! Excellent Italian food. My husband loved his very tender veal piccata and I enjoyed the lasagna. Cozy little spot decorated like an Italian home. Reminded us of the original North End of Boston.

The food was good. The atmosphere just alright. Wine and beer only. Very close to the beach. The menu is broad but not terribly innovative. The staff should have been better attired. They looked sloppy.

It was so good, I cannot begin to tell you how great the food was. I cannot say when I have been at a better Italian restaurant.

With a recent trip to Sicily this was a great find. The owners and the food are truly authentic. The food was outstanding and the furnishings were on spot. We stayed on Vilano Beach within walking distance of this restaurant . I definitely would stay on Vilano beach again and the Casa Benedetto's will be on the menu!

I have a week alone so I decided to try places I haven't been. Well, I was VERY glad I tried here. I had the Tortellini Carbonara. It was wonderful. One of the best cream sauces I have ever tasted. I will definitely be back and I can't wait to try more!

We were able to walk to this little Italian restaurant and found it busy but no wait on a Friday night about 6:30. It got quite a bit busier while we were there but never unpleasantly so. Our food was delicious and I was able to get a gluten free meal of a savory meat sauce on spiralized zucchini cooked... More
