Benvenuti's Ratings and Reviews
We selected our 7 year and counting wedding anniversary and were most please with the old look from the outside and the nice setting on the patio. The hostess was kind and pkeasant to accommodate us in changing iyr table for a boith. Logan our server was a professional and relaxed. Love it. We both did
Had a wonderful celebration dinner with friends. The food was terrific. Shared an antipasto for 4 people then we each had a wonderful pasta. Lots of excellent wine and we weren't rushed at all on a Saturday night. Have been there before and will definitely return.
I have been disappointed with their chicken marsala a time or two in the past, with it being over cooked and tough, but this time I tried it again and it was perfect! Our appetizer, mussels, on the other hand were not that great... 1/3 of the meats were missing and not found in the broth! Some of them were "off" tasting. The food and service are not always consistent, (except salads..always superb) but we keep going back because overall it's a wonderful restaurant!
This is one of the nicer restaurants in Norman that serves excellent Italian food. Service is outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant, especially for special occasions. Though pasta is the speciality, there are several varieties of pizza which are really good. Estimated cost is about $20 a person, not including drinks.
We had an outstanding night at Benvenuti's. Made reservations easily through OpenTable and was seated immediately. Service and Food was excellent. Hard to believe we were in Norman. We are from the Dallas area and Benvenuti's was as good as anything that we have found in Dallas.
The food is amazing and our waiter made the experience so easy and comfortable. Went on Valentine's Day which we assumed would be insane and poor service no matter where we went but we were able to make a reservation 30 minutes before got there and were served immediately! This place is our new special night out restaurant! Try the Chicken Marsala with the Centine Rosè wine ... it was perfect!!
Benvenuti's was delicious! It may have not been the BEST Italian restaurant that I've ever been to, but it was certainly a good one. I was particularly impressed with the salad that I had, the "Benvenuti's Salad" if I remember correctly. The poached pear added a subtle sweetness that didn't overwhelm the rest of the flavors of the cheeses and candied nuts, and it wound up being one of the best salads I've had in quite a while! My entree was good, too - a Ravioli dish with cheese, pork, and beef - and though it wasn't fall-out-of-your-chair good, it was certainly tasty. My wife's dish - a pasta with shrimp - was very good as well.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys a variety of Italian foods and/or someone looking to celebrate a special occasion. Our waitress was very kind and attentive, and I was really impressed with the selection on the menu and would really like to return soon to try some of the other, more unique selections from their menu (my dish was a pretty conservative order by most accounts). The lamb dishes looked delicious as did the variety of seafood options, so I'm looking forward to tasting more food from Benvenuti's in the near future.
There were four of us for dinner with a 6:30 pm reservation. We were seated within 5 minutes and had a great time. I had the special which was a Barrata Cheese Ravioli. Scrumptious. They should have it as a regular feature on the menu. All the food was great, the service wonderful and the wine selection perfect. I have told at least 10 people about this place in Norman. I don't usually go to Norman, OK but I will certainly return just to eat at Benvenuti's.
