My favorite place in Norman to go on a special occasion. Pasta dinners are great! Chicken Marsala is very good. I like scallops but they are served with pork belly😟 so I no longer order them. Service is excellent.

We've been here many times but this visit was a 'fail.' The staff acted as though they didn't want to be there. The hostess was diffident to the point of being rude. The waiter was inattentive. He even poured ice down my back and didn't seem to notice. All of this made the food seem a notch down. We will... More

From the moment we walked in we knew this place was wonderful and we were not disappointed. We started by sharing both the siracha shrimp and the caprese salad. The shrimp were crisp and just spicy enough and the salad was to die for. The tomatoes were full of flavor but the house made burrata had just the right amount... More

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.
