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

We chose this place over the newest, trendy place in Norman OK when we stopped for the night while traveling. The service was so good it would be hard to find fault. Fairly young staff but really on the ball (Norman is a college town.) Glad we didn't do the "trendy" place. We'll be back.

The food at Benvenuti's is outstanding and the desserts are something to dream about. Benvenuti's is my pick for a special night out or celebration. When my daughter and husband visit we always go there for a big family dinner.....it is always memorable.

Haven't been in Norman in many years and the last time I was there this location was another restaurant not worth remembering. But had heard good things about Benvenutis and was here to celebrate my Dad's 93 birthday. The food quality and quantity was exceptional and we could not have asked for better service. Being from the Bay Area in... More

We came here last night for dinner. We arrived a bit earlier than our reservation to sit in the bar area. The service at the bar was fantastic by the two young bartenders. The woodwork of the bar is just simply amazing and very nicely done. Afterwards we moved to our table for dinner. We ordered the calamari for appetizers... More
