Food was good, as usual. However, we had to wait ~30 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. Service was not good--our server forgot our wine order and we had to send our entrees back, as they were delivered before our salad. This has been a favorite, but we'll probably go elsewhere next time.

Overall, one of the better dining establishments that take reservations. The food is very good but pricey! Obviously, they take advantage of the college/parents visiting Norman.
Our service was extremely slow and unattentive as our waiter was working inside and outside. It took 3 requests to receive bread prior to our meal. Also, drinks ran empty pretty regularly and had to ask other staff for assistance.
The most disappointing was I made reservations 4 months in advance and was still provided a very poor table right by entrance, while other tables sat empty that would have been more accommodating.
Live and learn.

Really delicious! We had a special carbonara, a dish called rustica, and a filet-and all were great. Rustica was SO rich! Desert was a salted caramel chocolate pots du cream- fabulous. Back room was really pretty where we sat at 5:45 but by 7pm it got so loud we had trouble hearing each other.. Overall- wonderful time.

Excellent, as usual. We went recently to celebrate our anniversary. In addition to the many dishes we have tried before, there were several new items on the menu. We both chose to try the Rustica...shrimp, chicken, mushrooms and pasta in a delicious sauce. We were too full for dessert but took home a piece of my favorite flourless chocolate torte to share later. Always happy when we go to Benvenuti's, whether it is for a special occasion, with a group of friends, or just the two of us.

My wife n I from SW OK met my Georgia cousin and my NOKC dad in Norman. Food was terrific. Service was attentive and not portentous. It was nice to visit and catch up on each other's lives. It also made a sweet memory. Thank you.

My husband and I have eaten at Benvenuti's twice now, each time we are in Norman, we make it our "date night"...it is wonderful! The service is fabulous, the food is delicious, the wine list is great, and the overall ambience is lively, yet perfect for a quiet dinner for two! We can't wait to go back!!!

We had a fantastic dinner, with excellent pasta, some of the best I have ever had. It was a busy evening during OU Homecoming Weekend, but the food was worth it and the service and extra care by management made it worthwhile. Would DEFINITELY recommend. This is a gem.

This was by far the best dining experience I have had in Oklahoma! No one can beat the food or service! Ray was our server! What a doll! Knew just which wines to offer with every dish. I would expect this place to be in NYC or Chicago!
I will be back!

This restaurant may be the best restaurant that our family has ever eaten in, and we have traveled many places in the US and other countries. Who knew that in Norman, Ok one would fine the lightest, most tasty pizza crusts and breads, the freshest foods with so much flavor, and the most pleasant and prompt service? I ordered one of the chef's specialties with elk and pumpin ricotta grudges and tomato gravy. It was spectacular. My husband's "Pasta from Hell" was outstanding with serrano peppers, sausage, tomato cream sauce in tagliatelle. The young man who was out waiter was so charming and professional. Keep up the wonderful restaurant, please!

Grant was exceptionally pleasant and attentive as our server; we enjoyed celebrating our anniversary here (as we have in the past). The food and wine was wonderful. We've never been disappointed with our dining experience here.

My brother and I surprised our Mother by flying in to OKC from Nashville for her 60th birthday. Benvenuti's was recommended to me by a friend. We had a wonderful dining experience and had an exceptional waiter. Grant was his name. We made a great memory. Thank you, Bryan

Not impressed w desserts this time. W/ many open tables available, we were seated in a high-traffic area closest to bar and kitchen entrance. Been here many times, still good main courses, but experience overall just not that impressive anymore.

The service was outstanding; we started out as a table of nine and grew to 13. Our server accommodated our large demanding group with grace and professionalism. The food was great, everyone happy with their selections, and some difficult food allergies easily accommodated!
