A couples dinner. Everything is perfect
The food is great. I found it to be a little noisy to converse with a group of six people. Very good service and knowledgeable waiter.
We celebrated our anniversary here and couldn’t have been happier. The food was outstanding. Great cocktails. Our server Aundria was absolutely great, very pleasant as well as knowledgable and helpful with the menu. The braised veal cheek with butternut squash risotto was one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten. Definitely recommend.
We celebrated my father's 70th birthday here and we loved it. The staff gave him a birthday card and cake with a candle. We loved the food - meatballs for a starter, wedge salad (best wedge i've had) sea bass was perfectly cooked and a big portion. We had a nice bottle of wine - The Water Witch, best wine we've had in while.
This place has the best Italian food for Hunnes of mile and several states. Classic and creative dishes, served hot, with perfect service. Worth splurging on the wine to accompany the meal. Excellent deserts.
Good food, great ambience, and convivial atmosphere. Great spot for traditional Italian dishes.
I am Calabrese/Sicilian from Chicago and have lived in Oklahoma City for 2 years. I have finally found the most authentic food that brings me back to my roots. The meatballs and gravy are perfect! The care and pride that Benvenuti’s emanates has made our dinner here the best Italian experience we have had here in Oklahoma. Gianni took care of us to perfection. We also had an incredible shrimp cocktail special with shrimp from Hawaii. The Chilean Sea Bass and Filet completed our meal. We now have a reason to come to Norman regularly throughout the year!
The food and service were great. Had a very nice bottle of red Zin as well. Our seating area was very loud but I’m sure we could have requested to be reseated.
My main complaint is that it is very noisy but not sure what could be done to improve it? The tables in the bar are very close together. But overall very nice evening!
Exceptional as always! My favorite place❤️ Every time I dine here the food is top quality, service wonderful and a most beautiful place!
Once again, Benvenuti’s exceeded our expectations. The fall weather made for a great outdoor evening dining experience. Our server was throughly knowledgeably of the published menu as well as the evening’s specials. My wife had chicken Marsala, which was like no other - stuffed with spinach and cheese. I ate the wild boar ragu with gnocchi- very flavorful as well. We enjoyed a moderately price Cabernet and capped off the meal with a triple-chocolate cake and French pressed coffee.
Excellent traditional Italian restaurant. Pretty expensive, so probably should be reserved for special occasions, but they try and make it worth your money, and they succeed.
Tbe first mediocre meal ever! My child had his birthday there and he got chicken marsala. He loves marsala. He could not even eat it, it was so awful. Burnt. Odd flavor. He would not let me tell the server because he was embarrassed. My other son got the filet. He asked for medium rare. He got medium well. So just overall a bust. Oh well! Cannot be perfrct!
Enjoyed a great dinner on a Friday night before a Saturday football game. Ambience was lively. Our server was excellent. The menu was filled with interesting choices. My husband loved his Pig and Scallop choice. I had butternut squash ravioli and recommend them. Friends raved about the veal.
Server, Kristen, was great - very personable, very intelligent and very helpful.
I had the Kobe bone-in ribeye - it was not even good. I am a huge steak lover - and ribeye is my favorite - but had two or three bites that were an inedible and I left food on my plate. I’ve had this same exact steak at B’s in the last 6-8 months. Both were much better. I don’t know if it’s just a bad cut of meat, or what.
The place looked great and all the staff we interacted with were wonderful. It was a little loud, but it was just good conversation, nothing that would warrant criticism.
The best restaurant I have been to in Norman, cannot wait to come back!
The best sautéed crab claws I’ve ever had. Service is top notch and they will remember your name...
food and service was wonderful! Will definitely go again!!!
Perfect place for a family dinner for our oldest daughter's sweet 16 birthday dinner.
Food and service were excellent. Abigail was our server and she was very attentive and friendly. Servings are very ample but not too big. Would definitely recommend Benvenuti's!
Fantastic all around. They take extreme pride in their service and food. Can’t say enough nice things. As a bonus, we got to see and meet Barry Switzer who was having dinner.
Best restaurant in Norman.
Wonderful Italian food. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone who would like fine dining at a reasonable price.
Best Italian food within the OKC metropolitan area. Veal parmigiana is a whole veal chop, and every bite delicious. Pasta dishes fresh and not too heavy. Good wine list.
The food and the atmosphere was wonderful! Cannot wait to go back!
Went out with friends to celebrate our anniversary.
One of our favorites! We recommend to our family and friends
Everything was great except the waiter. He thought he was Houdini. He kept disappearing. There were 10 of us.
I love this place and have for over 10 years! BEST restaurant in Norman! The food is amazing and service is always great! It’s a beautiful restaurant and I highly recommend!!
This place was great for my end of the summer date with my boyfriend. It had a great vibe to it and the food was extremely authentic. It is a bit pricey, one dinner for the both of us was $100 with tip. Keep that in mind.
Outstanding restaurant! Excellent food, excellent service, excellent atmosphere. Can't wait to go back!
Always a good time at this place. Food is definitely the highlight of the experience, as it should be, but service was great as well.
Service was great. Food was disappointing. After telling waiter we were disappointed he advised that the chef was not working tonight.
The experience was really good up until the waitress forgot about us. I had to flag someone down after sitting for 40 minutes to get the check, and they brought us the wrong check.
The restaurant is very nice inside and the food is always fantastic. This time the service was slow and our waiter kept apologizing for the slow food and drink delivery
Enjoyed finding this gem in Norman now that we are new OU parents!
Charged $1 for aoli that the waiter offered. Otherwise great service and food.
Our first time at Benvenuti’s and the the experience did not disappoint. Service was great and wine recommendation was perfect.
