The food is on the expensive side, but generally well worth it. Appetizer, a few drinks, and entrees for two, plus a shared dessert came out to $130, but the food was all amazing and the service was excellent.

This is our favorite restaurant after our first visit. The setting was beautiful, the service was superb and the food was to die for This food was as good as any when we were in Italy. Everything had great flavor. I had the pasta from hell, my wife had the chicken piccatta, we shared the bruschetta and caprese salad and topped it off with the baked apple dessert. Wow.... I highly recommend this restaurant.

The sea bass, mashed potatoes and asparagus were deliciously flavored, perfectly prepared, perhaps the best I have tasted, ever. The lobster was fresh, succulent and perfect, which surprised us since this is land locked For dessert we split the coconut cream tart with a fruity graham cracker crust, again marveling that we are experiencing this in Oklahoma. Perhaps we don’t miss Newport Beach quite as much now.

Not sure what is going on with the kitchen here. This is the second time we’ve visited recently and it has taken way too long to get our food. Service is definitely slipping from what we have become accustomed too when dining here.

Ordered a pizza and veal parmesan. Asked that the pizza have very light cheese. Pizza arrived swimming in cheese. Sent the pizza back. Veal had never been brought over. Server said the pizza was being remade and it was first in line. Pizza and veal finally came back after 15 minutes or so. Pizza was lukewarm so it was obvious it had been sitting in the back for some time. We've brought friends and family here before but most likely won't be back.

What a treat! Benvenuti’s is exceptional and the variety of dishes, presentation, ambiance, service and value is what makes this restaurant a perfect choice for an evening out. The restaurant provides all the important care of the customer. Social distancing, temperature checks and proper spacing is done so in a wonderful manner.

I love this place. The food and service are wonderful every single visit. Since it is on the pricey side Benvenuti's is a 1 or 2 time a year treat for us. This visit did not disappoint. I will also add that since it is a treat we tend to indulge :)

We had the shrimp cocktail as a starter and the shrimp were clean (why do so few restaurants get this right?) and just the right temperature. The cocktail sauce was delicious but the shrimp stood on there own.

We shared a wedge salad next and I loved the unique presentation and substitution of gem lettuce for iceberg.

My husband had the Wagyu strip steak and it was amazingly tender. Knife not really needed. Cooked perfectly.

I had the Kobe bone in ribeye and it was amazing. Seasoned perfectly and cooked to a wonderful medium rare.

I had the ice cream desert (Billionaires something?) and it was really good. Lovely chocolate coating with creamy interior. Perfect ending. Husband had tiramisu and coffee which he loved.

I wish I could recall our servers name as he did an excellent job. He was there but not overwhelmingly. Just taken care of as needed.

If you are looking for delicious, delicious food I cannot recommend this place enough.

Benvenutis is outstanding! My wife and I enjoyed the perfect meal and dining experience recently. It’s hard to deviate from our favorite mushroom rigatoni which is the best item on the menu in my opinion. Great wine, appetizer, salad, entree and dessert!
