This small family owned restaurant has very good food. Food prepared as ordered, so everything is fresh. It is nothing spectacular inside, and looks small from the outside, but the food promises to be very good and service is very friendly.

From a pretty ordinary looking small building in Villanova Beach we had a very relaxed and tasty Italian meal. The folk were friendly and service spectacular. The red sauce was delicious as was the eggplant and veal it went on. Dinner came with salads and hot bread with a family recipe for a "spread" involving olives and eggplant which was... More

Ten of us from out of town went for a birthday dinner. Service was very good. Food was excellent, except for the calamari. We got a calamari appetizer and one guest had a calamari entrée. Both of those were bad. Everything else was excellent. We all enjoyed the rice balls and stuffed mushrooms. I had Grandma Ferracane’s Braisole. Outstanding! Those... More

This cute little ristorante is family owned and offers genuine Italian dishes prepared from scratch. The food was fabulous. It is a bit of a challenge to find the place, but worth the search.

Found Casa Benedetto while staying a week at Crescent Beach. So delicious that we came back twice. The eggplant parmesan was the best we've ever had while travelling. The soups and marinara sauce were rich and delicious. The servings were huge for dinner. The service was superb in relaxing atmosphere. Dessert was homemade and enough for two. Don't miss this...

This restaurant can satisfy any Italian food lover. They really know how to make a red sauce. Whether it's a typical dish or if you want something special. Nice atmosphere and service. They also serve gluten free dishes which was great because half our family eats that way. The drinks were not bad. You can smell the garlic as you... More

This Italian restaurant was a pleasant surprise. There were ten of us and "Carrie" took great care of us with outstanding service. We all got different entrees and therefore tried many different items, they all were wonderful. I recommend this restaurant to all, I will surely come back.

Fantastic Italian food, just like grandma used to make. We had vegetable lasagna and chicken cacciatore. Perfect after a busy day walking through the old town. We had enough left-overs for another meal - and it was just as good the second night. The restaurant looks like a diner, so not the setting for a romantic dinner.
