We just moved here from Chicago and found this restaurant to be completely up to par with some of the best places we have eaten. We loved it. It is a little pricey, in the "special occassion" way, I wouldn't just drop by for dinner. I would bring any visiting friends or relatives here, it is possibly the best restaurant in Norman, if I find something else that is better than this I will be surprised.

We enjoyed a great meal at Benvenuti's. We loved the Bruschetta appetizer. Entrees ordered were: Pasta From Hell, Lasagna, Salmon, Ravioli, and Sea Bass. Every dish was great. The Sea Bass was phenomenal. Desserts were amazing.

Variety of food with Chefs Specials brings me back for special occasions or if I want a bit of truffle in my day. Started with crab claws and truffle fries...can’t go wrong here! Salmon special and Chicken Marsala were outstanding. Almost went for the Pig and Scallops (again) because it is so tasty. A nice Napa Valley red blend topped off a great menu. If you haven’t tried Benvenuti’s, you are missing out on a dining experience.

Never disappoints! Food, wine and service are always perfect! Delicious chewy Italian bread, good choice of appetizers (must try the crab claws), salads are always excellent (especially the Nutella), authentic Italian main dishes and desserts!!! Oh, don't forget the wine!! Can't go wrong with any choice!!!

We ate early, 5:30. The noise level is very low when you go early. The service perfect, the food amazing, and a soothing cocktail.

While the noise level will be more later in the diner evening, the food and service will remain top notch.

The best restaurant in Norman. The menu has classic Italian dishes, but the specials are always in season and very creative. The service and atmosphere make it always worth the money too.
