What a wonderful place - excellent food, nice atmosphere! Carrie was our server and she was great! The food is to die for - heavenly - you don't want to miss going to this hidden gem. It's been a long time since I found a restaurant that I would highly recommend.

This restaurant hits all high notes. From the wonderful freshly baked bread to the delicious food and pleasant background music. We had the specials for the evening and they were fantastic followed by desserts that were to die for. The Tiramisu was the best we've ever had and we've tried it in many different areas and places. The Chocolate Cake... More

Honestly, we haven't been so excited about a restaurant in years. We were driving the art deco / mid century roads of Vilano Beach on a Saturday afternoon to look at the architecture, ( only two miles from Old St. Augustine, across the Vilano Beach Causeway, behind the Publix ), and we ran across a quaint cool looking place...We knew...

This was a great find after trying the busy seafood restaurants in the area. This place was quiet, so my husband and I could have a conversation without competing with background noise. We had baked clams and two shrimp dishes served with pasta on the side. All the food was excellent and enjoyable. Kody was our server always attentive to... More

Love the authentic food and quaint atmosphere! Amazing Italian food! Thank you for a lovely and quiet couples date night. The pasta tasted homemade. The tortellini was creamy and rich.

This is a small, family run restaurant on the "town center" strip in Vilano Beach across from St. Augustine. The restaurant is in what was apparently a house and/or diner from the 50's - 60's travel boom in that town. It is cozy with only a few tables per room, and eclectic decor. The food is delicious. The bread served... More

During our recent trip to Vilano Beach, Florida, we decided to try Casa Benedetto's Italian Ristorante. The owner stopped by our table to say hello, and she is a charming lady creating old world Sicilian dishes. The service was fantastic and the food was excellent. The restaurant has a charming vintage feel that is very welcoming. It was Christmas Eve... More

We just moved to area and enjoyed our "3rd" meal at Casa Benedetto's and wow, incredible quality and the service staff very professional. Both "Jo Jo" and Kody were not just very good wait staff, but a lot of fun. Fun is always good! Five Star here, best at Vilano Beach and one of the best in St Augustine. Thanks!

Thank Bluezkat
