     Margaret Mason and her family had a fantastic time celebrating her 100th Birthday at Benedetto’s Ristorante Italiano located at 21529 Village Lakes Shopping Center Drive in Land O'Lakes. This has turned into quite the family tradition with Margaret previously celebrating her 95th Birthday and her 90th Birthday at Benedetto’s!

     For over 16 years Benedetto's has been serving up incredible meals and memorable moments. Many accolades and awards have been bestowed including being one of Florida Trend's Top 400 restaurants year after year. Head Chef and Proprietor Ben Pumo and his wife Elizabeth's mission is to serve only the finest and freshest food available on the market.

Everything here at Benedetto's is made fresh to order. Most of their filled pastas are made by hand in our kitchen. Our steaks are cut daily on premise and are the finest of Certified Black Angus Meat available. Our northern seafood is flown in fresh from Chef Bens Connections in Maine and the local seafood is delivered daily from his close relationships with the local fish captains. Their shrimp come directly from the docks out of Tarpon Springs and taste like mini lobster tails. Bottom line is you can't Fake FRESH!! One of our most popular appetizers that was made by mistake is the Ben Dip, that includes lobster meat, lump crabmeat, artichokes, spinach, five cheeses, topped with alfredo and mozzarella then finished in the oven. TO die for!!

     We make our bread fresh every day and also our desserts. Their wine lists boosts over100 bottles and many by the glass. Their Martinis are 10ozs and have been said by most to be the best around. You will find that all of their sauces are made from scratch and that nothing contains MSG or artificial flavoring. 

     Benedetto's specializes in northern and southern Italian cuisine with a big emphasis on Seafood. They also offer Gluten free pasta, wheat pasta, 15 vegetarian entrees and can accommodate most diners’ health needs, because all of our entrees are cooked to order, making it a dinning pleasure to those that have special dietary needs. You will find that their service is some of best you will ever have. The average tenure of a server at Benedetto's is 5 years. They will impress you with their extensive knowledge of the menu and the recital of the daily specialties.

Benedetto's is one of the only Tampa bay restaurants to have live piano bar music every night of the week. The walls are lined with customer photos, local and nationally recognized celebrities, Rat-pack memorabilia and numerous awards won throughout the years. 

All of Benedetto's entrees come with choice of salad, fresh baked garlic rolls, and most with side. 75% of menu is between 14.50-19.95. We are not ala-carte, we are not chain and again, you can’t fake FRESH!! Benedetto's keeps the tradition of your family owned dining establishment that is chef owned and operated and works harder every day to make every guests’ dining experience a memorable one.
