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.
Food is always good..but this time around...service was sub par
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.
Amazingly great. Went for our anniversary and it was such a wise choice.
Our go-to dining spot for every special moment in both our lives and with friends in theirs. We drive over an hour each way to reach Benvenuti’s. It has always been an incredible dining experience. We highly endorse.
Bread was perfection, calamari appetizer was the most tender I have ever had and the main courses were delicious!
short handed so service kinda slow and food was not as good as previous visits--guess kitchen was also short handed
Tables along south wall were too close together. Great food.
Wonderful repeat experience. One of our favorites. It's lively with fantastic service. Food is freshly prepared and always perfect. You will not be disappointed!
The staff was super friendly and incredibly helpful. The atmosphere was cozy and perfect for a rainy day. They had a band playing so it felt more relaxed.
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!
Food and service are consistently good every time we go. One of our top three places to go in Norman.
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.
We always have great food and great service here. The wine list is extensive. It is a safe place for gluten free diners too!
Food was great, we had the meatballs to start off with, I had the Veal Parmigiana Ravioli which were to die for, then we finished with the Banana Tartlets which I would recommended to anyone going there. Also the server was FANTASTIC
Great place. Great food. Interesting wine list.
First time dining & a great experience! Each of us sampled the tables’ entrees of Sea bass, chicken Marsala, Rustica. Delicious! Also, the carrot cake & brûléed banana cream tartlets were very tasteful! Highly recommend!
It was very busy but they seated us immediately.
Outstanding meal just like every other time. Ivy was an absolute delight as our waitress. Benvenuti’s has never failed to impress. The antipasto board is the best around and the pasta are unreal.
Always a great meal and evening!
Favorite restaurant in Norman! Always high quality!
This was our first time at Benvenutis. It was a wonderful experience!
Kids were in town from KCMO. BJ our server was polite, knowledgeable and took extra care of us. The General Manager-Tarasina was amazingly friendly, pretty and very cheerful. The rustica, lamb shank and pasta from hell tasted great. Best lamb I’ve ever had. Felt like home, treated us like family. Did I say Tarasina looked gorgeous in blue to match her big blue eyes!
Great as usual
Celebrated our daughter’s birthday here with friends. Bread was great as was service.
We visited Benvenutis for the first time this weekend. Our experience was near perfect from beginning to end. Ivy, our hostess, was exceptional! She was quite personable & knowledgeable about the entire menu. From appetizers to dessert, the food was top notch! We’ll definitely return and next time we’re bringing family. Thank you for a lovely evening!
We've been waiting a while to try this restaurant. The entire experience was great! We will definitely return.
It was an anniversary celebration with friends.
We hadn't been back to Benvenuti's since we moved to Oklahoma City, but we've exhausted all the fine dining here atm and thought that we'd revisit an oldie, but a goodie. It was well worth the 45 minute drive. Great service, great ambiance, great food, and an unique and delicious dessert selection which is hard to find. Restaurants tend to have the same basic desserts everywhere we go so whenever there is something unique we're very impressed. Hands down the best Italian restaurant in the area, one of few we trust with properly seared scallops. Service is that of a Michelin star restaurant. We were so impressed with our waitress, sadly I can't remember her name right now, but she was great. Only Con is that they are not closer to my house.
Benvenuti’s never disappoints. My wife had one of the Daily Specials, mushroom encrusted sea scallops, and pasta with a light cream sauce. The meal was delicious and serving size plentiful - 5 large scallops. I had the other Daily Special, braised lamb shank, creamy polenta and fresh green beans. The lamb shank was tender and flavorful, the polenta creamy and rich with cheese. We rounded the meal off with a Chianti and finished with a Cappuccino. Our servers were attentive, but not overbearing. We especially like how the Benvenuti’s staff work as a team ensuring you food is served hot and in a timely manner.
We always have a great experience at Benvenuti's, but tonight was especially good! We thoroughly enjoyed our one day after Valentine's dinner! We always order the same thing (filet for me and lobster pasta for my husband), but this time we added a very nice bottle of wine too. The wine was amazing and the food was delicious! Our waitress was so sweet and decanted our wine and let it breathe for 10 minutes which was quite nice! Dessert was wonderful as well! All top notch!
A favorite in Norman! Food is always excellent! Lovely, quiet, Unrushed atmosphere! Our waiter was outstanding.
Excellent food, drnks and service. One of the best resturants in Norman.
Our first, but definitely not our last. Great food/Good service.
Awesome special occasion place to have a romantic dinner with that special person. Food is pricey but very good. Service was super, very friendly and top notch. They provide privacy but yet do not ignore your dining needs. Highly recommend Benvenuti's
I want to thank Benvenuti's for making our occasion special as I request a table for two to celebrate our valentines with our date night. Not only were we placed in a wonderful romantic corner with the nice window view but the area that was chosen was just perfect! The candle was a bonus and the atmosphere was very comfortable. The manager even came by with a smile and nicely asked us how our food was and if we needed anything else. The only thing I would change is that the lady of the table be given her food first before serving the man and making note that the woman should be spoken to just as much as the man of the table. Maybe adding some special flowers or roses would have topped it all but overall I was impressed and received more than expected, and yes I will be having more date nights here as well! Thank you again for helping me with my special night!!
As always my favorite place!!! Everything is great here!
It's our favorite go to place in all of the metro area. The food is always fabulous along with the service.
Our server, Storm, was excellent!! She was extremely pleasant, efficient, and allowed us to truly enjoy our fabulous dinner! It was a perfect, unplanned🤗evening out!!
