|Al Terrazzo||Carretera Bon Retiro, 8, Benidorm, Spain|
A few mixed reviews about this Italian. The Terrazzo needs to up its game maybe in a town full of competition.
|Authentic Pizzeria||Calle Gerona, 11, Benidorm, Spain|
Not sure how long this has been opened. Some comments from people about good food and lovely pizzas. Some service issues but let's see over time.
|Bistro Venexia||Calle la Palma, 30, Benidorm, Spain|
Lots of reviews about how 'authentic' it is and the fact that the owner and chefs make time to talk you through a menu. Looks nice too
|Casa Guillermo||Calle Santander, 22, Benidorm, Spain|
Another restaurant close to my home in Benidorm, I've popped in here a few times and really enjoyed it. There is loads of space and Guillermo's is well run and clean. Good staff and good Italian cooking make this a place to go and find. Very popular with Spanish tourists
|Casa Jan||Av. de Estocolmo, 15, Benidorm, Spain|
Low prices and generous portions, Casa Jan is a small pizza place. Probably a 'pop in' place if it is near and you suddenly fancy pizza.
|Duetto||Calle Londres, 4, Benidorm, Spain|
Doesn't have any bad reviews, always a good sign! Often mentioned are their very large pizzas.
|Duomo||Carrer d'Alacant, 6, Benidorm, Spain|
I like this place because it has a nice feel about it and is quite calm albeit a little hard to find. The food is authentic Italian and the pasta dishes are really very good… lots of choice too. Warm atmosphere and staff.
|El Italiano||Plaza Hispanidad, 3, Benidorm, Spain|
Big pizza place which is quite nice inside. I think you won't be disappointed but, equally, you won't be 'wowed' either . If you fancy a pizza and you are close by, then you may as well go here. Read the reviews of other Pizza restaurants in Benidorm if you really want to find the best ones.
|Garibaldi||Av. del Mediterráneo, 44, Benidorm, Spain|
The Garibaldi Pizza restaurant serves Gluten Free options which I know can attract a lot of families where one of their group has a wheat intolerance. Other than that, well cooked pizzas etc. It can suffer on service in busy times.
|Italian Garden||Calle Lepanto, 21, Benidorm, Spain|
Although on quite a busy road, the large outside area has a fence/barrier all around it so allows you to sit outside with kids and get a bit of fresh air. I'd say average to good food and not too expensive. Service can suffer at really busy times.
|Italian Twist Bar Bistro||Carrer Sant Vicent, 14, Benidorm, Spain|
Small Italian bistro with quite modern styling. Run by two nice chaps who seem to put a lot into service and welcoming people - just as it should be. Some reports of it getting a little warm in there.
|La Cas Cantonieria||Carrer Sant Roc, 11, Benidorm, Spain|
Mixed reports about the Cantonieria. Mostly service based so it may be because they get busy, to be updated further.
|La Pasta||Carretera Bon Retiro, 4, Benidorm, Spain|
Tiny tiny pasta place - all freshly made on the premises. Lovely staff but don't go in a big group!
|La Tarantella||Calle Gerona, 1, Benidorm, Spain|
Not a great Italian according to a few Spanish and European visitors. Another restaurant suffering from bad service.
|Llevatelo Pizzas||Avenida de los Almendros, 11, Benidorm, Spain|
Simple and cheap pizzas. This place has been going for a long time. Tends to be popular with locals.
|Luna Rossa Pizzeria||Avenida Montbenidorm, 5, Benidorm, Spain|
This is not too far from my house in Benidorm and I've visited there a few times, often alone when I was out on business etc. I would absolutely recommend La Luna. The pasta is really, really fresh and their home prepared ravioli is a favourite of mine. You can sit inside or out if you are a smoker. I think La Luna is often passed by, don't.
|Mandolino Beach||Carrer Metge en Cosme Bayona, 6, Benidorm, Spain|
Another restaurant where you need to see what nationalities eat there. This is very popular with Italian visitors and it is an Italian run restaurant. Whist Italian and British tastes often converge, they don't always match so pick your dishes carefully. The food is, in my opinion, very good! Nice views and good for people watching.
|Napoles Pizzeria||Avenida Madrid 26|
Tucked out of the way at the far end of Levante beach, Napoles is up a small alley way from the beach. This means the seating area is quite quiet but there's still some people watching to do. Generally well regarded and seems to be good for kids too, not overly expensive. Pizza, Pasta and Burgers cooked well.
|Pinocchio Pizzeria||Avinguda Alcoi, 12, Benidorm, Spain|
Great location, good to watch people go by in this pizzeria which I'd say is slightly more popular with Spanish visitors who like the brighter lighting, modern styling and ice-cream.
|Pizzeria Avanti||Esq. Cl. Coles Calle San Miguel 3, Benidorm|
If you can get a table outside, this little Pizza place is quite good for people watching. The calzone I eat once (albeit a few years back) was lovely. Reasonable reviews, not sure I'd eat inside as this little alley way gets really hot at night in the summer.
|Pizzeria Di Mare||Calle Santander, 12, Benidorm, Spain|
The Di Mare is a good pizza place with good pasta too. Quite a nice location with eating inside and out under a canopy.
|Pizzeria Dolce Vitta||Calle del Esperanto, 13, Benidorm, Spain|
Nothing but praise on t'internet for this place. Very good quality and service all around it seems.
|Pizzeria Italia||Calle Lepanto, 14, Benidorm, Spain|
Fast food Italian. Food on the move with the Italia Pizzeria on Lepanto,14
|Pizzeria L'Originale||Calle la Palma, 36, Benidorm, Spain|
Another family run Italian where the difference is made by the owners and staff who care about food. Lots of comments about their pasta. To be honest, even though it has very good reviews, I found the service to be poor and unco-ordinated. A group of 12 of us all got our meals at different times; some being finished before others started! The head waiter refused us a menu as he wanted to explain the dishes to us!
|Portus Massai||Avenida Vicente Llorca Alós, 22, Benidorm, Spain|
Owing to the fact this restaurant is just down the road from my house in Spain, I have been to the Portus Massai quite a few times if only for convenience. I think the location is good and I quite like the styling. I think it is family run and there's a few comments about indifferent service from some waiters. Well, I wonder if this is because the lads get told off sometimes and become surely. I like the family dynamic. Nice burgers.
|Spagetti House||Calle la Palma, 7, Benidorm, Spain|
Fast food Italian style, the Spaghetti House is more of a small shot than a house. Not a destination place, a food stop really.
|Spasso||Plaza del Torrejo, 1, Benidorm, Spain|
Really nice to place to sit and eat and watch people go by. I'm afraid I use this place as my 'hangover' breakfast bar where I can get an Orange juice, big white coffee and toast in the morning for just a few Euros. The food at night is quite good and if you go later it is a brilliant place if you are a couple and just want to watch the world go by. Food OK but nothing really special but it isn't that expensive either. (By the way, Google says this is on a street behind the beach but it actually overlooks it.)
|The Pizza Factory||Avenida Europa, 6, Benidorm, Spain|
There are better pizza places in Benidorm but if you're close to this place and fancy a filling meal then pop in. When you look at Spanish reviews, they rate it higher so this might mean the toppings and style of pizza is slightly more to Spanish rather than British tastes.
|Topo Giggio||Av. del Mediterráneo, 9, Benidorm, Spain|
Food is rated highly and it looks like it is a good and simple Pizza restaurant. Seems to have a few service issues from reading reviews found on various Spanish review sites. Interesting views on owners. No idea if its true but I'll check it out.
|Torna a Sorrento||Av. de Estocolmo, 48, Benidorm, Spain|
The Sorrento is worth a peak inside its entrance which looks a little plain. They have a lovely terrace garden and the ambiance is nice. Sometimes it is nice to get off the street and eat in a nice calm environment. The food is good. Worth a try in my book.
|Toscana Pizzeria||Calle Gerona, 3, Benidorm, Spain|
Another Pizza place where they cater for both English and Spanish visitors however the bright lights and the menu favours Spanish tastes I'd say. Not really sure how much meat is eaten, mainly pizza and pasta.
|Va Bene||Avenida Bilbao, 3, Benidorm, Spain|
I like how clean this restaurant looks and the fact it isn't far off Levante beach. The place, being more modern and brightly lit will attract more Spanish people who seem to like it as do British holidaymakers. I think it’s a day time/early evening place not a destination restaurant. Might be wrong. Lots more Spanish styling to the Italian Food.
|Va Bene Pizzeria||Avenida Vicente Llorca Alós, 13, Benidorm, Spain|
Right on the beach with a lovely view, the Va Bene pizzeria very much benefits from its location on Poniente Beach. Because of its location, the restaurant attracts a lot more Spanish than British. Not outstanding food by all accounts and many of the dishes made to the Spanish style (lots of Olive oil etc.).
