We have been here many times before and have never been disappointed. Excellent food, atmosphere and service. There are several new offerings on the menu and we both tried something new for our meal...Rustica. It was a mix of large shrimp, chicken, mushrooms and speck over pasta, all in a delicious sauce. We started the meal by sharing an appetizer... More

Upscale menu. Professional staff. Great atmosphere. Only positive comments can be made about this establishment. I would recommend this Italian restaurant to everyone. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

A great place for Italian food. Very creative and unusual menu. Nice choice of wines. Can be a little more on the pricey end. Worth the money and they also do wonderful catering.

I was looking for a restaurant for a quiet birthday celebration. Being a friday night I made reservations and requested a quiet table. Even though the place was packed and people waiting to be seated, we were shown to a very quiet table at our requested time. The staff were very friendly and had excellent recommendations. The food was marvelous... More

My husband and I have been going to Benvenuti's for years! The food is absolutely Devine! The pasta from hell is one of my all time favorites (it is spicy), the filet is one of the best I've ever had, and the sea bass will melt in your mouth! All of the appetizers are delish as well as all the... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant in Norman with food of this quality and inventiveness. The dining room is a little "old school dark" for my taste so we ate out on the patio. We enjoyed three great appetizers including a bruschetta with buffalo mozzarella and pillowy soft sun-dried tomatoes that melted in your mouth. They also served... More

I saw some good reviews so decided to try this Italian restaurant near the OU campus, and this was one of the best food experiences I've had. The fried risotto ball appetizer melted in your mouth, the raviolis were outstanding and the desserts were to die for. I will be back here again. And coming from the Mid-Atlantic, the prices...

Quiet elegant surroundings with attentive wait staff. House cab good. Poke belly and scallops (weird combo, huh?) was great and wifeys pizza also excellent

Good hearty Italian Cuisine, Anti Pastas and main course were large portions, Serve staff were friendly but unfortunately the restaurant was packed and the kitchen staff were back logged. Resulted in our food taking a long time to arrive.

I ate at Benvenutis a few years ago. It was even better than I remembered. It is one of the best restaurants in Norman. The service and food is outstanding. It also has an excellent wine list. It's perfect for any special occasion, or just a night out with your favorite special friend(s). Highly recommended.

Thank Kathy H
