Benvenuti's is artful, understated dining as conceived by executive chef Anthony Compagni. We strive to awaken the senses by utilizing seasonal ingredients, both international and local. At Benvenuti's we continuously seek the finest selection of local and organically grown produce, legumes, and grains wherever possible. We also obtain naturally raised animal products to provide foods free of antibiotics, growth hormones, and pesticides. Benvenuti’s pasta is hand made in Abruzzo, Italy by Rustichella d’Abruzzo from the finest Italian wheat. Mangiare!

Fine food is appreciated when paired with fine wine. Benvenuti’s has carefully assembled an artful collection of boutique wines. Benvenuti’s offers more than 150 wine selection to compliment the menu of Chef Compagni, available by the bottle, half bottle, glass or our exciting wine flight.

We made a reservation for 2 to celebrate my birthday, which we have done many times before. When I made the reservation on OpenTable, I indicated we would be celebrating a birthday. We were immediately sat, even with being about 5 mins early. We had a young man (he never gave his name) that was in college as our waiter (we know because he kept talking about it). He asked if we were celebrating anything special and we told him it was my birthday that day. When we would ask a question he would tell us what his favorite was, we would then have to ask him what other options there were. We had to ask for another glass of wine each time because our glasses were empty and we were never asked if we wanted another. This happened 3 times. We had to ask for silverware 3 different times because we didn’t have any to eat with. We ordered dessert and it took about 20 mins to get it. In the past, when celebrating my birthday here, it has always been served with a candle, and the waitstaff serving us would always be kind in saying happy birthday. Not this time. The dessert was sat down and he walked away. The special occasion we were celebrating was never acknowledged after first being sat. Despite all of the previous mentioned lack of service, I was most taken back by watching and experiencing the men at every table being served first. This was not just by the person waiting on the tables, but also the staff bringing the food to the tables. I am glad my main entree and dessert tasted great as I remember; I am, however, very disappointed in my experience at the restaurant.

Everything was great as usual. Disappointed that that you changed the plating (slightly) of the Pig and Scallop dish. Still one of my very favorite places to dine and I'll be back as soon as possible.

We were seated what seemed to be right on top of everyone else. When we asked Victoria to move, she politely obliged. And, expressed it's usually not that busy on a Sunday evening. We understood as we eat here often. 😁💜

This is my favorite Italian food in Norman! It's pricey but the quality speaks for itself and I am always positively impressed and never disappointed. It's definitely one of my all-time favorite restaurants and I would recommend 100%!

The drink someone in my party ordered was “off”; missing an ingredient (amaretto) entirely. When we brought it to the server’s attention she took it to the bar. The bartender not only refused to remake the drink, but also insisted on charging for the amaretto if they were to make it right. It was ludicrous and very poorly handled. They could have sold several more drinks to our table if they had just remade it, but instead, a terrible tone was set for the rest of the meal. Poor service is putting it nicely. We didn’t order dessert and left as quickly as possible. Guest services 101 is to give the benefit of the doubt in an effort to keep your clientele happy and returning to your establishment. Benvenuti’s failed miserably for this party of 4.
