Celebrated son's graduation from OU last night. Benvenuti's was his choice. Good choice. We had 7 in our group ranging from 18-82. We all had a blast. I'd called ahead and spoke with the manager, Hass (sp?). Very helpful as I preordered some champagne and wine. His recommendations were excellent. On arrival, our wonderful server Blake, was tremendous. He had... More

Just had a monthly special at Benvenuties. It was a veal shank special. it was literally one of the best meals we have ever had. We split it and was way plenty for the two of us. Benvenuties is an amazing place in Norman, OK. Chef Anthony makes you feel right at home when he comes by every table at... More

Benvenutis has a great atmosphere for romantic or special occasion dining in Norman, Oklahoma. Its dining room is elegantly appointed. The building is the former bus station and interurban depot for Norman, although it has been a restaurant for several decades. The mushroom rigatoni is outstanding. The pizzas are cooked in a wood fired oven and are also very good.... More

Arrived late one evening after walking out of another area restaurant due to poor service (absent service). What a pleasant change it was to arrive at B-V. The staff was gracious and friendly. The service was timely. The food was solid although not spectacular. We have been here many times and always enjoy the experience.

We've eaten here 10+ times. It is consistently good food and atmosphere. The wait staff is attentive, the wine selection is large. They also have wonderful specials that are very well done.

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
