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.

First time in many years we've eaten at Benvenuti's and it was a great experience. Aside from it taking way too long to get our initial drinks everything was spot on. We're already planning our next visit.

We were so excited to celebrate our good friends birthday at Benvenuti’s! Our food did not disappoint it but our server was disappointing to say the least. His response time was poor, he wasn’t knowledgeable about the menu or specials and he honestly was very disengaged.

Food and service were excellent as usual. Atmosphere is the best in Norman, marred only by the very casual attire of some of the patrons. But this is a college town so that appears to be unavoidable. Too bad because Benvenuti’s is a wonderful restaurant whose ambience deserves more respect than it gets. Still, it’s the best restaurant in town.

Delicious food! We split the Veal Parmesan and asked for a side of capellini and marinara. It was fantastic. Our friends ordered spaghetti and meatballs and chicken piccata. They said it was some of the best food they’d ever had. Salads were fresh and desserts were so good, it all tasted fresh and perfectly seasoned and prepared.

Great restaurant with an upscale vibe. The food was great! We sat in the bar area so it was a bit noisier than the rest of the place but not so much that we had to yell. Overall it was a great place to celebrate our anniversary. We'll be back!

The Maitre 'D forgot about us and we were seated 25 minutes after our reservation, the waitress forgot our appetizer, and when they half-heartedly apologized about it they took another 20 minutes to give use the check (it was not that busy) - having worked in the service industry for over 6 years I was pretty disgusted with how we were treated - when we were about to walk out the Maitre 'D started gossiping about us. Will not return.
