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

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.

We go here every beach trip and love it. The garlic bread is delicious. The stuffed peppers appetizer is great. This time I went for a classic Veal Parmesan and it was perfect. Cheesy, tender veal with spaghetti. I generally order a special or pasta...More
