I was in Norman (at U. Oklahoma) on business and was treated to Benvenutis. The food was delicious; service was friendly and well informed, and nice atmosphere. We had several excellent appetizers and I had fruitti di mare (pasta with seafood) -- the pasta was homemade and the sauce was delicious, slightly piquant (perfect for me). Good wine list as...

The food and the setting is elegant. I suggest order wine as their cocktails are small and too much ice. A lovely choice all the while.

There shouldn't be an argument over the best place to eat in Norman. Benvenutis is by far the best. The pasta is made from scratch and is about as authentic as you can get. I usually get the "pasta from hell" which is a little too spicy for my wife, but there are many dishes she does love like bucatini... More

Benvenutis is a special place. It is upscale but worth every penny you spend for a meal. Every menu item is fresh and prepared beautifully. I have never had a bad dish and I have been going to the restaurant since it opened. Steaks are always right on. Seafood is fresh and the chef does magical things with the Sea... More

Our experience as a group of 14 was disappointing. We had a reservation on a Friday night. The seating was a long booth along a window in what was essentially a hallway with 6 tables pulled together. Very poorly lit as well, hard to read the menus. The service was decent, but a group this large should have more than... More

Dinner with the boss and clients turned out very well at this place. Generally quiet setting, maybe a little under lit as one of my colleagues used his phone light to view the menu, yet very nice. Good antipasti plate with numerous selections. The wine decanter is a bit cumbersome with chips on it. The star of the show was... More

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.
