Benny Rappa's Trattoria in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina was established back in 1996. It only seats about 75 people, but this also gives the restaurant its cozy, home-style ambiance. Owner Benny, for whom Benny Rappa's Trattoria is named, and his wife, Michelle, created a fine-dining environment with an Italian menu to match.
Many of the ingredients used in the dishes here are from local sources. Benny Rappa's Trattoria is open for lunch and dinner. If you come for the former, you have the option of ordering �Lunch on Time.� This menu item consists of either the lobster ravioli ala vodka or the Italian sausage sandwich. Both come with a Caesar salad and the Italian wedding soup.
This is the second times that we have eaten here and it will be a regular stop every year on our vacation. The food and service are excellent and the dishes are very authentic. I had Beef Ravioli, she had Cheese Manicotti. We shared an excellent appetizer, Calimari Staek, a method of serving calimari that I had never tasted. Nice wine, no room for desert. Highly recommend that you check this place out. It's on Rt 17 South, NW of the busy area, near the Krispy Kreme. Call for reservations as it's popular with the locals and usually busy,
My wife and I dined here last week after reading stellar reviews. The food did not disappoint. Everything was fresh and delicious. The staff and kitchen were happy to modify any dishes. The lighting made for a romantic feel and the exclusive setting was nice. The only negatives would be that there is no view other than traffic on 17 and it is quite expensive. Perfect for a special occasion, but wouldn't bring kids. In all, very pleased.
My husband and I dined here for his birthday, while on vacation. We had a wonderful experience and highly recommend this restaurant! We plan to be back again- you won't be disappointed.
Six of us had dinner and all enjoyed the lighted menu! Waitress was great, service was great and most of the food was wonderful. I had a scallop dish which was too salty for me but if you check with the waitress, I'm sure they could have taken care of that. She indicated that we could order something we liked, even if it wasn't on the menu and, if they had the ingredients, they'd make it.
Finally had the chance to take my family, including in-laws and nephews, to this restaurant which I have enjoyed for years on guys' golf trips. It was a huge success! Everyone loved it and many of my in-laws live in the NY/NJ area where they are used to finding great Italian. Benny rocked it!
Enjoyed mussels appetizer and lasagne entree.
We have previously dined here and again had a wonderful dining experience. The chef will prepare an item not listed on the menu if
the ingredients are available in the kitchen which he did for us. A great meal.
We chose this restaurant to celebrate a new job and it didn't disappoint. We loved our entrees and everything tasted fresh and homemade.
You always get an awesome meal here!! even if you don't see it on the menu!!!
We have been going to Benny Rappa's for the last 3 years. The food, whether on the menu or not, is always tasty and cooked to perfection. They really cater to the customer's taste. Can't wait to return to M.B. next year so we can go back!
