The food was good, but the restaurant has crammed too many tables into its space. Waiters were having to turn sideways as they walked through the room. We were so close to other diners that we almost felt a part of their conversation even if we did not want to.

The food here is always fabulous and presented very well. By most restaurant standards, this place is fairly quiet and very pleasant. I believe this is a great place more suited to adults. You will leave feeling satisfied having just had one of the best meals available.

Some reviewers claim this is authentic Italian cuisine. It isn't. Granted, it's a cut above Olive Garden and the likes, but it's still a very americanized take on Italian. The service is good, but the food is overpriced.

This was our first time to dine at this restaurant. I had a $30 Groupon to use, and I heard this was a great restaurant. We were greeted and seated immediately. Our waiter was very nice, polite, and attentive. My husband and I split a Margherita pizza. The pizza was good other than a few spots on the crust had... More

The restaurant is an absolute gem. In a small city like Norman, having that great representation of Italian cuisine is wonderful. The plates are the least Amercanised possible. If you look for American-Italian food, this restaurant is not for you. On the other hand, if you pursue real Italian cuisine, you will find a great deal in this restaurant. Highly... More

Came to dinner here with my good friend and it was such an amazing experience! The food was incredible. Our waitress, Kristen, was very accommodating and sweet. One of the owners, Hoss, even sat down to chat with us. He is hilarious! I would recommend this place to any one who would like a genuine Italian meal

I chose Benvenutis to celebrate my wedding anniversary. I have been looking for an Italian restaurant in Oklahoma that could compare to one of my favorites in Los Angeles. This restaurant isn't a match but definitely has potential. My husband loved the pig belly and scallops. I had chicken marsala which was pretty good. The server was good but I... More

My wife and I asked about sharing a Benvenuti salad and the waiter told us that would work. Well, it did, for about two bites each. We ordered Pasta from Hell and Lobster Ravioli. Both were very good in quality, but certainly not too much in quantity. We had to wait a bit on the service and had to ask... More
