I arrived for lunch at 12.45 the owner and wait staff were sitting and talking. I smiled, waved but no one could be bothered to acknowledge me. After standing and watching them joke among themselves for 3 minutes I left.

After searching for a decent seafood restaurant in Ventotene, we came upon this perfect-spot. Small and unpretentious, it served up healthy and wholesome seafood at a good price. The grilled sardines were perfectly prepared while my hisbasn's orata was also nicely done. Not fancy, but good!!

We have been here a few times in the last year. Never a disappointment. The food is great, the waitstaff is friendly and the view is excellent.

A little pricy, but friendly service, wonderful sea food on the outdoor grill, and some very nice wines. Nice quiet location too.

We found Benito's while searching for my friend's ancestors on this magical little island. What a discovery! There is a large open barbecue where they grill the freshest fish you've ever tasted, and the antipasti and pastas were fantastic as well. The family take great pride in this well run restaurant and it shows in every dish you receive. But the best part if all was meeting and talking with 85 year old Benito who is as young as any man half his age! Go and enjoy this fabulous restaurant. It's like dying and going to food heaven.
