Alco Pest Control

Popular Florida Italian Restaurant closed for roaches

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Action News Jax visited Benito’s Italian Café & Pizzeria on Philips Highway after roaches were reported by the health inspector.
During the most recent inspection, a health inspector reported seeing a number of issues including roaches. In the follow up, an inspector saw more issues like live roaches, dead roaches and roach droppings in the kitchen. The health inspector shut the eatery down until it could fix the issue, which included getting rid of the current pest control company.
“We were using them for a while, and for our other location too,” said manager Rafaela Gjondrekaj. “And this happens, and it’s like so frustrating.”
Benito’s also wanted to apologize to its customers.
“I want to reassure everyone that the problem has been solved,” said Gjondrekaj.
Everything was clear during a follow-up inspection with the health inspectors.
