Excellent Food, superior service. The "pasta from hell" as it is called is extraordinary. The wine selection is very good and the wait staff is friendly. We have enjoyed many of the items on the menu to include appetizers, entrees, desserts and pizza. We usually order the pasta, pizza and an appetizer/dessert. It is more than enough food for everyone.... More

The Pasta From Hell is one of our favorites too! The house-made Italian sausage is actually our grandfathers receipe that has been a family tradition we are pleased to share with our Norman family! We hope to see you soon! More

Had dinner with friends on a Monday evening. The restaurant was packed but we got seated right away and received service quickly. What a pleasant dinner! Great service, great food, and great atmosphere. It was a busy restaurant but not a bit chaotic. Kudos to the staff!

My wife and I have dined here a few times. The food is somewhat pricey but is always well prepared and tasty. The decor is nice and the service is always good. I have tried several dishes but recommend the steaks or spicy pasta dish. I will definitely be back.

Make reservations. Since we moved back to OK this was the best Italian experience we have had. Party of four we had varied entrees from chicken Marsala to pizza to ravioli to Gamberretti. Portions were quite generous, the salads were superb, wine list ample. Deserts are shareable and good. Some restaurants "over flavor" food, but not this one. All servings... More

Benvedutis is an amazing place. The food and service are fantastic from start to finish. Everything from the appetizers to the pumpkin cheese cake. All topped off by chef Anthony dropping by the table to make sure it was a evening to remember. We highly recommend going and enjoying.

We had dinner here on Friday night. Benvenutis is truly a gem of a restaurant in downtown Norman. Cozy and inviting atmosphere we loved everything about our dinner experience here. We were warmly greeted by the hostess staff and taken to our table-in the back "wine" room. One wall of the room was filled with wine bottle storage. Great if... More

It's kind of hidden away; you have to know you're looking for it. Greeting at the door was friendly, reservation was found and we were shown to our table efficiently. We met our grand-daughter and her boyfriend (both OU students) who recommended this place as a special date-night place. Menu is varied and it all sounds wonderful. Chicken Marsala, Sea... More

Being from NY originally, and now living in NC, I am always on the hunt for great Italian food. Who knew I would find it in the city of Norman, OK. Wow! That about sums it up. Ambience is wonderful, staff was so friendly and food was outrageous. If you are ever near OKC, you must drive this reasonable distance... More

Fancy and high-quality ingredients, but combinations are odd and cooking is uninspired. Overall, it's relatively expensive for what you get. The decor, ambiance, and service were well above average.

We have been coming here for years and it is always great! Athony (chef/owner) greets us every time and often delivers our food to the table. Ask for Caleb to wait on you. He knows the beer and wine list and great pairings. Very personable . The sea bass is the best around. The carpaccio is outstanding with large caper... More
