We tried Benvenuti's Ristorante for the first time on Saturday and it was fantastic! My niece cannot eat gluten which is why we picked this restaurant because they have gluten free pasta! She ended up getting the gluten free pizza and she said it's the best gluten free pizza she's ever had! My husband had the mussels and I had a pasta dish and both were excellent as well. She lives in Ada and we live in Edmond so we met in Norman for dinner, and we'll definitely drive back down to Benvenuti's again, especially when it warms up when we can eat out on their patio! Oh, and you have to try their nutella filled donut holes for dessert - amazing!

We went for our 11th Anniversary. Great table, lower lighting, quiet. Aundrea was awesome. Wasn’t overbearing and was there when we needed her. I got filet and it was AMAZING. One of the best steaks I’ve ever had. My wife got the Rustico pasta dish and it was so good! Finished it off with some delicious tiramisu.

For starters we had to wait over 10 minutes to be sat even with a reservation. Seemed like they were short staffed because our server was so busy it made it hard for her to give good service. We waited longer than necessary to be greeted for drink orders (do yourself a favor and don’t drink the water 🤢) and were ready to order food for 5-10 minutes before the server got back around. Food is usually great but it was only mediocre this visit. They were out of my favorite dessert and then when they brought dessert we were informed the dessert chef had already left and that’s why it took so long to get it out. Overall it was just not the experience I’ve had previously which was even more annoying by the fact my boyfriend and I hyped it up and brought out of town guests. None of us were impressed and we probably won’t be back.

I’ve had very good meals at Benvenuti’s and disappointing ones. My last time there was disappointing. The clam chowder was thin and boring; you can get better down the street from the soup-bar at Sprouts. The grilled vegetables I had were fashionably undercooked, meaning I had to saw through them to cut them up and chomp down to chew them. They tasted semi-raw, and not at all flavorful. The bella mushrooms had somehow been made to taste sweet, which was nasty. There was a bit of thin humus and some green paste, which I forget what it was supposed to be. It was duty-eating; I had to eat it since I’d ordered it and since it was healthy, being vegetables.
Our server this time was better than other times—fairly uninvasive, as compared to times we’ve had the server want to hang out and chat with us at length. And the ambience is good. You and your companion can have a pleasant conversation in what feels like your own space, without intrusive noise from music or other people’s conversations.

It was OK. It seems very popular. The bruschetta is not very good. The spaghetti and meatballs were OK. The chicken picatta was not very good. The taramisu was small with a lot of cream and it was just OK. It was an average place pretending to be high end. I will probably not go back. Hope this helps other people.

It was the first time that I had been to a high scale restaurant and I greatly enjoyed it. The server that we had was very knowledgeable about everything on the menu and was very professional in her knowledge of the menu and wine lists and answered our questions with kindness. She had a shadow following her who was also extremely kind and even though he did not interact with us much in terms of answering questions he was very kind as well and did everything that he could to make our experience worthwhile.

Personally, I was a little disappointed with this restaurant. The bruschetta starter was only so-so, and overly sweet. The wild boar gnocchi could have been served with more thought to plating (was serve lumped in a bowl) and the gnocchi was very soft/doughy. The goat cheese ravioli was a little on the bland side, as one would expect a good punch to a goat cheese, that was missing, the ravioli were quite flat, and the tomato sauce did not help the overall blandness. The chocolate cake with three layers of mouse was quite good, although, my heart was pounding later after eating it, so I suspect it may have had heavy fat or possibly trans fat in it. I expected, for the price, that the food would be pretty stellar, and it fell quite short of that. I would rate this restaurant a three star, rather average in my opinion. The service was quite good however, and we still enjoyed a memorable experience.
