My favorite restaurant to enjoy Italian food in Central Texas is Benny's Ristorante Italiano located in downtown Temple. The owner Benny Ismaili is a great personal friend of mine that has been in the restaurant business for over a decade first with his Dibz Restaurant and now he's in his beautiful new location on South Main Street.

We have a chance for you to win a $50 gift card for you to experience Benny's up for grabs as part of our Valentine's Day Giveaway! You can nominate a special someone in your life or nominate yourself and tell us in 100 words or less why you or that special someone deserves an amazing Valentine's Day!

If you've haven't been to Benny's yet, let me take you on a tour! We stopped by during the #MandatoryMeeting on Facebook Live and I'll show you around and we even talk to Benny about his establishment and what he has going on including a special Valentine's Day menu and show with singer Joe Berg. You can call (254) 771-0169 to reserve your table at Benny's and stop by 17 S. Main Street in Temple and enjoy some amazing food!
