Benvenuti's Ratings and Reviews

Waited nearly an hour for our table with reservations. Didn't get drinks until 15-20 minutes after we ordered. Food order was delivered to our table incorrectly. It was my fiancée's birthday and we came here for that special occasion with his parents and they were NOT impressed with the service. Very disappointed as we were so looking forward to this! I asked if they do anything special for birthdays and was told if we ordered something they would put a flag in it. Really?! After all of that?! No thanks.

The restaurant is really romantic for having a great decorated dinner with people you love. it is great for anniversaries, date.
they change the menu every 3 or 6 month so you could always try a new delicious food.
Although the price of food was high compare to other restaurants in Norman but it is really worth to test their food. foods are delicious and pretty!
I highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions.

We were well greeted, promptly seated and our waiter Ray took it from there. He was among the best servers in town. Present but not bothersome, friendly, convincing that he loves what he does, gave good wine advice. He tipped the scales from very good to a great experience.

just good, real Italian by name and fact. dont expect the typical Italian processed food you'll find everywhere. Benvenuti is run by a professional Chef with strong Italian roots, and the dishes are made in the kitchen with top ingredients ( opposite to the typical microwave warm up ).
and the Italians of Norman approve of this place.
chi mangia bene vice bene.

Benvenuti's is our favorite restaurant in Norman. It never disappoints! The waitstaff are knowledgeable, friendly and attentive but don't hover. The food is excellent. The filet was tender, juicy and perfectly seasoned. The mashed potatoes and asparagus were nice compliments to the meal. My daughter had the spaghetti and meatballs. The portion was so generous, she had enough for lunch the next day. The 2 meatballs were tasty and each was the size of a man's fist. The lasagna was also excellent and was a generous-sized portion. My daughter and I split a Caesar salad . It was dressed perfectly, not soggy and the croutons were crisp. The mussel appetizer is always a great choice! Just make sure to use the bread so you don't miss any of the delicious sauce!

I ordered lamb medium rare, it came out well done. This has happened to several of my friends lately here. Then I sent it back and they rushed the next order out and it wasn't good. My martini was borderline warm and over the top dirty. I can't believe they made me pay for the lamb even after the server understood everything that happened. This place has gone downhill. I've had fantastic meals here so I'll give it another try.

If your going to eat out the only place that I've found the that truly goes the extra mile is Benvenuti's, I enjoy seeing the same staff members every time I come in and that's a true testament to a great place. It help that the food is the best in the mid west, and could compete easily with the best. Great wool Benvenuti's keep it up!

Excellent meal and service. All four diners agree. Appetizers and main courses were delicious and well presented. Pretty good Italian representation on the wine list. Italian restaurants in Oklahoma tend toward the Chef Boyardee taste, so this is a treat.

JUST FABULOUS! SIMPLY FABULOUS! We were so full after eating those FABULOUS appetizers, we barely had room for the amazing entrees. Friendly, really nice staff and service. Service a little slow, but well worth ANY wait. FAB-BU-LOUS!!! Can't believe this place is Norman, OK. It should be in NY or better yet -- in Dallas.

Best Happy Hour Deals in town!! Drank Moscow Mules for $5! My friends had Martinis and Old Fashioned also for $5.
We shared four appetizers between us they were full size portions and each were $5.
Best kept secret in town!!

This was our first visit to the restaurant based upon open table reviews. Upon arrival, we were told our table was not yet ready (not a problem). The restaurant looked inviting and we were looking forward to a dinner experience someplace where we had not been before. Once our table was ready, we were taken to the back part of the restaurant and seated at an "extended" table with 10 other guests. In addition, there were two large groups in this section. The ambience of this section was completely unlike that of the "main" seating area. It reminded us of being in a banquet hall. Our disappointment was , even with reservations and ample seating in the main restaurant, the fact that we were seated in this section. The food was delicious and we plan to return, but we will probably be sure to request main dining room seating.

We are in love with this place! We came for a birthday party in a private room! The service was great and the manager, Terrasina came by several times to make sure everything was perfect. And it was.
The food is truly the best in the mid-west. Might be some of the best food I have have ever had. We had the Lamb Rack, Filetto, Bruschetta, Benvenuti Salad, and the Butterscotch Budino and Brandy Ice are a perfect finish.

My wife and I ate there to try to decide if we will use their catering for our daughter's wedding. Before we ate, the manager was awesome because she took the time to review the options. So many and they can make it work in our budget. Dinner was nothing short of fantastic! If they put the same care into the wedding dinner as they do their food, it will be a splendid evening!!
