Benny's is a nice looking, cozy and comfortable restaurant. Great until you try the food. My wife ordered the eggplant parmigiana which came with rigatoni. Parmigiana was worst we've tasted, with no mozz. Marinara sauce was harsh; tasted like tomato paste with mixture of spices...More

Benny takes pride in every single detail and I mean EVERY SINGLE DETAIL. The menu, quality food, freshness, service, parking, wine selection etc. Seating is limited so don't get disappointed if you have a wait. We have been eating here for yrs. We are local.

A hotel staff member gave us this recommendation and even though I thought it was strange to have Italian food at the beach... the meal was exceptional. My favorite was the garlic bread, gelato, and pasta. Will definitely return to this great restaurant.
