My wife and I came down for visit while in Tallahassee. B&B we stayed at recommended Casa Benedetto's. Definitely not disappointed. Started with the soup of the day which was pasta fijjiole(so?) which was outstanding. I had the fusilli and sausage and it was also very good. My wife had the manicotti and was very happy with it. We finished... More

My husband and I went to Benedetto's for lunch and sat outside on a beautiful warm spring day. They are pet friendly and offered to bring water for our girl. I had peppers and sausage and my husband had pasta primavera. We were both very satisfied with our meals and Danielle, our server, was most attentive and effecient. I even... More

CB was on the short list and grabbed us in the drive by where the other 3 dinner candidates on the same street couldn't compete on curb appeal: it looks like nothing's changed in 50 yrs...so though we went in the door completely based on atmosphere, the food was A++. Extensive menu and wines, reasonable pricing, and they clearly care... More

We met someone at Stogies who recommended this off the beaten path Italian restaurant. The rice balls were very good. The chicken parm was amazing and very large portions. Our wonderful waitress, Aspen, recommended the chocolate mocha cake, which was homemade and delicious. Will definitely return the next time we are in St Augustine.!!!

It had to be over 20 of us. We had a fun tasty luncheon for our treat as a monthly group get together. This wonderful Italian old world restaurant never disappoints.

Outstanding! The food and service were out of this world. Really neat, comfortable and clean environment. Our waitress Carrie was wonderful. I don't think we were seated for more than a couple of minutes before we felt like part of their family and were treated as such. And it was actually our first visit. It came highly recommended from our... More

As you walk in, you get the feel that this is a beach diner from the exterior and decor. We were pleasantly surprised to find this adorably charming Italian restaurant. We were greeted by the owners at the front door, a really sweet couple. The tables were draped in real linens. Soft music played in the backgound. Bob, our waiter,... More

A large group of us made reservations for dinner and had a great time here. For a large group our server Carrie did an outstanding job. We had a lot of requests and she worked hard to accommodate. The food was wonderful and on point. Well worth the drive!

Great good, kitschy atmosphere, great friendly service from Carrie. Will definitely go again. We're from NJ, and haven't found much good Italian food down here. This was the real deal!
