We're regulars here and always love the ambience. The food is great and hearty portions: salmon, bolognese, and paninis. I recently has the french dip and DEVOURED IT. Cone give it a try.

What a delightful little place in Marina Vallarta! Benitto's has a great eclectic vibe just perfect for a date night or for lunch with the girls. Very nice assortment of wines, beers and classic cocktails. I've eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. On occasion, they offer talented musicians, which make for a delightful evening of entertainment. The... More

We expected more than one hour a sandwich and a salad Caesar . The food was correct but not enough, very small portions. After we paid, the waiter returned to us and said that the tip wasn't enough! He said that 8% are not enough and 15% is the use!! The service was very bad and that'why we decided to... More

I've been coming here for a while. Always consistent. Excellent salads. I recommend sharing. The French Dip is large & incredible. Just trying Tuba salad today. Very friendly.

I am reluctant to write this review as soon Benitto's will be discovered and packed all the time. Five of us went there for cocktails and dinner and were very pleasantly surprised. We had drinks and appetizers in the bar area, which were all excellent and the drinks were very reasonably priced. When our table was ready we were moved... More

Great spot with different sandwiches and atmosphere. We had ham and cheese on a baguette and roasted eggplant. Both were very good with a crunch to the baguette. Staff is very friendly and willing to make any type of sandwich you would like. Highly recommended.

I asked the waiter what was the best food on the menu and was shocked to hear that he recommended the French dip roast beef sandwich. Damn was he right. It's been a long time since the baguette had a crunchy crust with a hearty dose of roast beef and sharp Swiss cheese. Add a wonderful full Vienna Minera and... More

I've eaten in many places devoted to sandwiches and panini in Mexico. The worst ones just try to develop what seems an easy concept of putting stuff in bread they shop elsewhere. In the best ones, the ingredients go along with the design of every dish. Benitto's was a very pleasant surprise. Service couldn't be better. The waiter was very... More
