What a wonderful dining experience from a truly tiny family run restaurant. The service was super, and the food was to die for. My only regret is that I didn’t save room for dessert. Next time, I will try!

After traveling from Charleston to st. Augustine, eating out every night and eating regional food( which was excellent). My husband and I needed old fashioned "home cooked food". Casa Benedetto was excellent. The Italian food was as good as "little Italy" in New York.
