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.

The restaurant just keeps getting better & better! The pasta is all being made fresh daily in house now and you can tell a difference! The staff isn't less than stellar & we always feel welcomed when we eat here. We were celebrating my birthday this time and it was perfect! I've chosen to have dinner here before on my... More

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.

I reviewed this restaurant almost a year ago, but I returned just recently on a first date and determined that it deserves my time again. Wow. Excellent is an understatement. We started with bruschetta, which was absolutely divine, if always difficult to eat while dressed-up. I had the Meyer lemon ravioli with crab. The sauce was incredibly rich and slightly... More

Thank you for the review! We are so happy you had a lovely experience. The Meyer Lemon Ravioli is delicious indeed! Once per month the Chef's Menu changes. Three new dishes to try! In July we will feature a hearty All-American Burger! Worth having with a coctail on the patio! We hope to see you for date night soon! More

My husband and I celebrated our 34th anniversary here as we were looking for something extra special. We drove over an hour and were not disappointed with what we found. We were seated in the middle room where the beautiful wood carved bar stocked to the ceiling was (including a wide screen TV) and fireplace which would be very cozy... More
