Very impressed!!!

I would say, it is one the best restaurants in Oklahoma. Amazing and tasty food, great service and wonderful location. Me and my sister-in-law felt a bit chilly sitting on the patio and had been provided with an outside heater. It's a perfect place for any family gathering or friends... read more

Very nice restaurant. Everything was delicious. Me daughter had the steak and I had the lobster fazzoletti, both were amazing. The bruschetta was also very delicious. Will definately come here again.

I read a lot of reviews of this restaurant before I decided to book for a dinner date. I was apprehensive because many people were saying that the portions were incredibly small. However, between the two of us, my boyfriend and I had enough food for just under $60. We ordered the calamari appetizer, which was a larger-than-I-expected serving. We... More

Benvenuti's is locally considered the best place for a business dinner in Norman. I strongly disagree. I have been here many times and I can assure that it is not the best in Norman, not even close. The food is OK, nothing amazing and not in line with the price. The service is inconsistent, sometimes has been good, many other... More

Wonderful food and service!! Some of the best Italian in Oklahoma. They stay very busy so call ahead for a reservation OR be prepared to wait. Worth the price.

Located on Main St. in downtown Norman, OK about two miles east of I-35, this dining gem shines in the land of chains with quality, fresh Italian food, friendly staff, comfortable dining room, and would be a great experience in any city. Invited by local friends for evening dining during a stay in Norman. They promised a good meal and... More
