Benvenuti's Ratings and Reviews
Excellent food at fair prices. Don"t miss the Pasta from Hell if you enjoy some spice in your noodles. The wine list is very good with selections from all over the world, with some wines difficulty to find in other restaurants and wine shops. Our server, Lizzy, was awesome!
This was our 48th anniversary and we wanted somewhere that had delicious food, a place with nice atmosphere and comfortable. Benvenuti's fit the bill. Our food was wonderful. Our waiter was so attentive, and we had a wonderful evening.
I recently went for dinner with a colleague for dinner. We were from out of town and wanted to try a local eatery in Norman. What luck we had in selecting Benvenuti's. The whole experience was above and beyond our expectations. Great service and amazing food. We shared a couple pasta dishes and wanted lick our plates. We finished off the evening sharing the flourless chocolate torte. Wow. Mind blown. Who needs flour anyway! I highly recommend this restaurant.
One of the best restaurants around with great food and absolutely the best service we have had in a long time. Went for our Anniversary and the food, décor, ambiance and service were all a perfect 10. Not a cheap meal but well worth every penny spent. So glad we went and plan on going again in the near future.
They placed an appetizer on our table in error. When I told them it wasn't ours they picked it up and placed it in the next table. I do not find that acceptable. They should have taken the plate to the kitchen and brought out a new plate for the correct table. It had sat on our table several minutes before I could get the waiters attention to tell him it was not ours.
We don't mind pay a bit more for a date night in a nice restaurant, but if we are going to spend 25 or more for each meal has to be great and this was not. I ordered penne pasta shrimp and chicken was over cook, pasta nothing special. We ordered desert to go tiramisu the waiter brought it all smashed in a plastic cup covered with wrapping plastic and it tasted like pure sugar with not other flavors most of it was just cream.
This chef can do no wrong. Fresh, innovative, but also familiar and comforting. Worth the drive, when we have to travel to OKC from Austin for business, Benvenuti's is our first stop for dinner. Included in every outstanding dinner we have ever had, is a knowledge extended by the staff of every item on the menu and the specials. We appreciate every dining experience we have ever had there and look forward to our next visit.
Another fantastic evening at one of our favorite Norman restaurants. Consistently checks all the boxes. Great food and drinks (peach infused vodka Moscow Mule was a surprise) great service, classy-cozy ambiance and the Friday art walk always ads a cool injection of life and activity to the place.
Every dish from the appetizers to the entrees were delicious. Specialty cocktail was a flight of mules enjoyed by 2 at our table of 4. One guest was from Houston and stated this was one of the best meals he has eaten. Rivaled the upscale restaurants in Houston.
Celebrated our anniversary and the staff wished us happy anniv. upon our arrival and we recd the best service from CORI and the best HOMEMADE ITALIAN FOOD we have EVER BEEN SERVED!!! And yes the food is not cheap BUT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! AND IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY!! We are already discussing what we will order next time! Must try meatballs and calamari. This place has a 5 star chef AND you can tell! EVERYTHING was 5 STAR!
