Great spot with different sandwiches and atmosphere. We had ham and cheese on a baguette and roasted eggplant. Both were very good with a crunch to the baguette. Staff is very friendly and willing to make any type of sandwich you would like. Highly recommended.

I asked the waiter what was the best food on the menu and was shocked to hear that he recommended the French dip roast beef sandwich. Damn was he right. It's been a long time since the baguette had a crunchy crust with a hearty dose of roast beef and sharp Swiss cheese. Add a wonderful full Vienna Minera and... More

I've eaten in many places devoted to sandwiches and panini in Mexico. The worst ones just try to develop what seems an easy concept of putting stuff in bread they shop elsewhere. In the best ones, the ingredients go along with the design of every dish. Benitto's was a very pleasant surprise. Service couldn't be better. The waiter was very... More

The food is pretty good small portions service staff is actually very nice and pleasant for small portions I feel that this is very priced or they're trying to cater to the rich and famous which is not attending this location so we had pointed out who the owner was he said he's a very arrogant person he seems light...

We wandered the Marina area trying to find something different for dinner after a week of local foods. We would have eaten here but the menu was a bit limited and we couldn't find anything that just called out to us. So we settled for resting our feet and having a drink. This area of the marina had changed drastically... More

My husband & I stopped here on a friends recommendation. We are glad we did. We sat inside with the air conditioning, as it was warm outside. The waitress was right there for our drink order and then came promptly for the food order. We both had sandwiches, Chicken Parm & Pastrami with goat cheese. Both on Ciabatta rolls. The... More
