O.k., O.k. Who is the best itlian Chef in Tampa? Well, that is a personal matter but it is obvious the patrons that walk through Benedetto’s in Land O’ Lakes have all come to a consensus that they love Chef Ben.
Form the first day I met Ben, I knew I was meeting somebody that had a higher degree of dedication to his food – higher than anyone I have ever met. When someone travels thousands of miles every summer to keep up with relationships to his distributors, that means he puts in the effort that no one sees. THIS, is a true CHEF. One that goes to extremes not only to prepare the best food, but to keep the relationships with the fisherman and the community that provides the best fresh fish and seafood. We are talking Maine lobster, steamers, and original recipes from the Mother Country of NEW ENGLAND seafood people…His attention to detail and the complexity of flavors is what keeps me coming back….this is making me hungry. I need to make a reservation. – Matthew B., Tampa, FL 33606
