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

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

A family friend from OK City recommended this place and it was excellent. The tomato sage broth served with the muscles was some of the best bread dipping sauce you'll ever have. My wife had the rack of lamb. It was a huge serving, perfectly cooked and very flavorful (we had left over lamb with eggs for breakfast he next... More

This restaurant is romantic with great food...especially the warm bread they bring out first. We get the big ribeye and split it...very delicious. Go.

Absolutely great food! By far the best place to eat in Norman, and my wife considers their steak to be the best around the metro area. Try the meatballs they are amazing!

Benventuis is really good. I would say it is probably the best restaurant in Norman. Hoss, the owner, is a great guy. If you are going on a date, think about sharing the bone-in-ribeye...it is awesome!!!!!!

This is a very comfortable restaurant. You can go casual or fancy. I have never eaten at a better Italian restaurant. Try the wine trio, french press coffee, and the best deserts in town to top off the traditional Italian food. Wide variety of fare. A cut above!!
