Good hearty Italian Cuisine, Anti Pastas and main course were large portions, Serve staff were friendly but unfortunately the restaurant was packed and the kitchen staff were back logged. Resulted in our food taking a long time to arrive.

I ate at Benvenutis a few years ago. It was even better than I remembered. It is one of the best restaurants in Norman. The service and food is outstanding. It also has an excellent wine list. It's perfect for any special occasion, or just a night out with your favorite special friend(s). Highly recommended.

This is not our first time here, but we have noticed a decline in the food lately. And tonight to make things worse one of their employees was standing next to our table the entire time talking with her friends. She was showing them info on her phone bent over with her butt right next to me. As we were... More

This is our favorite special restaurant. The food is always good. Tonight I had the steak. It was juicy and so tasteful. Great wine menu. They have seasonal specials which are always great. The desserts are wonderful too. Love this place

Food was excellent. Loved the lasagna, clam linguini and salad. Waiter was very attentive and even checked on the mileage to our next destination.

As if being Norman's finest Italian restaurant wasn't enough...the relatively new happy hour is fantastic. Drinks and appetizers $5, no limit. Received the same excellent service and food quality as always. Our group will make their happy hour an additional Benvenuti's go-to!

Beautiful restaurant, good food, great atmosphere. A bit on the pricey side, so won't be taking the kiddos with us next time - but they were wonderful with our kids while there.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review ! I am glad you enjoyed our restaurant. We certainly don't mind having kiddos there, but we do encourage "date nights"!! More
