Walk into town.

Grab a slice.

A cold drink.

Then keep on keeping on.

That’s Benny’s. And that’s how life is meant to be.

Sure the slice is key. Golden brown crust with a white creamy mozz, lightly crisped with bubbles. But it’s the lifestyle that matters. Easy. Breezy. Delicious. Benny’s Pizza.
"Tesoro's" means treasure in Italian and if there is one thing Nags Head is known for it is the treasure hungry pirates that fell victim to our shallow beaches. Benny Tesoro's is our 30th location and what better way to celebrate 30 than to head to Nags Head on the Outer Banks. Come as hungry as the pirates, grab a beer next door at the Lost Colony Brewery, and wreck yourself on our 28" pizzas.
Who's Benny?
Benedito “Benny” was a man of compassion, dedication, and good taste. Born in the old country, raised in Brooklyn, Benny spent his youth in the kitchen of Tiro A Segno (the century-old Italian gun-club of Manhattan). He worked under countless Italian chefs and served a generation of city leaders and cultural icons.
Unknown circumstances forced him to leave the city and he landed in a small town on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. He began making pizza pies for his neighbors out of a brick oven he built off his back porch. He became quite popular within the community.
Three decades later and Benny continues to serve his community with his signature 28” pies. He has been an inspiration to us here at “Benny’s” and a driving force behind our restaurant’s personality and recipes. His anonymity is important which is why every “Benny’s” has a different name reflecting the town it is within.
We hope to bring Benny’s 28” pies to every town in need of a little compassion, loyalty, and of course, great pizza.
