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

I attended a group event here and it was excellent. We were served bruschetta, risotto balls, cheese plate, lasagna, grilled vegetables, rolls, panna cotta, cookies and cheesecake. It was decadent and rich and no one left unsatisfied. The cocktails were inventive and delicious. The service was terrific; even the manager came to check on us. I would definitely dine here...

We were seated immediately and greeted almost immediately by our server. The food was wonderful, and service excellent. Salads were cold, crisp and perfectly dressed. The wine list was extensive, and ours was served at the perfect temperature. The only negative is the noise level makes conversation difficult if not impossible

Thank you for taking time to review us! We appreciate the feedback! We love what we do and that we are able to bring fresh pasta, house made italian sausage and pasteries made daily to Norman. Everything at Benvenutis is made in house including all our dressings and sauces! Glad you enjoyed. More
