Benvenuti's Ratings and Reviews

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!

Benvenuits Mule is the best cocktail in Norman! WOW! Delicious!! Even my hubby loved it!
I am love with this place. We have started dining once per week and service and food have been perfect every time! They certainly know what they are doing and you can tell they take pride in it all!

My husband loves the bistecca di santo — American Kobe Beef Bone-In Ribeye. It is huge! But oh so delicious! The best steak we have ever had!
I love the rack of lamb. This time I tried a special Gnocchi dish that was out of this world.
It is a bit pricey but it is top notch food so I get it!
Will definitely be back!

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.
