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.

The server was polite, knowledgeable, caring and friendly. The service was at a nice pace with proper spacing between the different courses. The portions and the pricing were fair, no leftover for the day after. As a southeastern European, I obviously had some expectations for the dishes I ordered, namely goat cheese ravioli and beef carpaccio. We had a candid discussion about such culinary cultural differences with the server at the end: I had to agree that authentic Latin flavors may not fit well with many American palates. Let's say the dishes are a great mise-en-bouche to eventually move forward into stronger delightful flavors, helping develop that special acquired taste.

The restaurant is beautiful and filled with a professional staff and outstanding chef. The shrimp scampi pasta special was delicious as well as the crab claws and calamari. One guest order the lamb chops which were terrific and the veal parmigiana was delightful. This is a great restaurant and a must when in Norman.

We don’t get there as often as we would like but when we do we are never disappointed. Outdoor seating is always enjoyable, when the sun is not beating on you. Indoors is beautiful, but just a little loud.

While the food was good we were seated in the bar area which was much warmer than the other parts of the restaurant and outside. Also bartender got my drink wrong and asked for it to be made again and was incorrect second time but wouldn’t dare return as I observed the bartender was mad he had to make it again the first time. Food preparation took longer than expected and we were at this restaurant for over 2 hours.

Definitely dine at Benvenuti's for outstanding authentic Italian cuisine. However, avoid being seated in the bar area on a warm evening, as the air conditioning didn't amply cool the room.

                                                                                                                I highly recommend dining at Benvenuti's. But not on the night the customers are celebrating Oklahoma University graduation. Even with all the noise and excitement, the food and service was excellent. We shared the Bruschetta. The wife had the Rustica and I had the Lobster Fazzoletti. Check the menu for description of the food but it simply doesn't do it justice. These two dishes were fabulous and the sauces Fantastico. I highly recommend both and that's coming from a Born, grew up and worked in Canarsie(little Italy), Brooklyn, New York who had the privilege to dine in some of the world's best restaurants. Though I think my Mom and Grandmother could rival some and Mom even got her cookbook published. It's no wonder it's at the top of OpenTable's list of where to dine. Fine Dining is our favorite pastime especially when we're traveling but it's so nice to have such a wonderful place close to home.

The sauce: could not stop soaking it up with the delicious warm bread. All four entrees were excellent. Everyone was trying each other’s and there were no disappointments. Wine, cocktails very enjoyable. Will definitely return.

The patio was lovely but one of our party couldn’t tolerate the outdoors, due to allergies, and we were quickly moved indoors even though they were very busy.

The appetizers were delicious - we shared four different ones. Clam linguini was outstanding, veal parmigianna perfect, and chicken picatta just right. I'll go back every time I can afford it! Well worth the price.

All of the dishes were good, very very rich. This was our fourth visit and we still haven't had that dish that just keeps you coming back. The service was slow and it was loud but the overall ambiance was great. The taste of the food doesn't quite justify the menu prices. Overall a good place for a date nite.

Our waitress was maybe spread too many places , so we waited for everything….drinks, ordering, bread, etc . We will still consider it our favorite spot in spite of the service letdown. Maybe just a bad night for the server.

                                                                                                                Don't get me wrong, Benevenuti's is a wonderful restaurant. However, the lobster was served without a seafood fork or a seafood knife. I had to ask for a sharp knife to cut the lobster tail and was brought a steak knife. The bread which was wonderful was served without butter and when asked for, it took over 5 minutes to arrive. Part of the issues are on management, some on our server. We ate early and the place was not busy, but the service was extremely slow. When a large party begin to arrive the restaurant got very loud and crowded. The check was $214.00 and we left a $45 tip which was too much for the service received.
