Fresh daily. So menu turns over each day. Plus they will make you whatever you feel like eating. Recommended to me and I recommend it to you.

We are in Myrtle Beach for 2 weeks - we cook in most nights, but will go to Benny Rappa's 3 times. First time we went was Mid-week, second time on Saturday. The food and service were equally outstanding both nights. The menu changes EVERY DAY - among the best we had: garlic bread to die for, spicy veal, seafood... More

We had dinner here for the first time this week. The atmosphere is nice and I was quite impressed with the technology - the menus are backlit!! Awesome idea!! I felt the menu was limited, and it changes "daily", so that part was tricky to me. However, our server told us if we didn't find an item on the menu... More

This is a very local trattoria, a great bar scene with friendly bar tenders and customers. We had to wait only about 15 minutes for a table and the staff was very nice. The menus is very changeable based on what the kitchen procures, I ordered a NY classic, a thick cut pork chop, grilled with sweet & hot peppers... More

Seated right away without reservation. Change menu daily and can order off menu if ingredients available. Ordered off menu Spaghetti & meatballs with marinara sauce and chef salad. Salad arrived with hot bread. Determined salad wasn't fresh. Had to fish out spoiled and limp lettuce from mixed greens salad. Entrée arrived and tasted very hot and peppery. Burt my tongue... More

Wife and dined here for a late Friday evening meal and it was fantastic. It had been at least 12 years since we last dined here and after the meal Friday I'm wondering WHY we waited so long. Since it was late we didn't order any starters, instead getting salads and entrees. First of all - the Bleu Cheese dressing... More

Wow, really bad meal! Had the swordfish, tasted old. $30 bottle of Pinot Noir was very tart. Disappointed as I read many good reviews.

Every visit to NMB we have to have a dinner at Benny Rappa's. What I like best is they will make anything you want given they have the ingredients. My favorite is a seafood creation over whit wine garlic sauce and angel hair pasta!!! Service is great as well. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

This is my favorite lunch place. The food is always fresh and home made. The service is gracious and the atmosphere is just right. I love the antipasto salad with tuna and various meats and cheese. Delicious. I also recommend their ravioli, and piccata offerings. Actually I think it is impossible to get a bad meal here.
