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.

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...
