Well lots of delightful young diners But still @$55.00 for a steak Medium rare should not be well done And the replacement had only touched the grill Well it turned out romantic dinner into an out of phase nightmare Would not recommend

if you want upscale Italian in Norman ,this is the only choice .Tremendous wine list for all you sisters.The delicate choice for variety on the menu makes a head spin but most any pick will reward your taste buds. My advice order more than one and share plus some for home.

Anytime my husband and I get a kid free night, we always end up at Benvenuti's. The food is so delicious and there is always something new to try. Service is also top of the line. Great selection of wine and mixed drinks. I also highly recommend Happy Hour.

I can't tell you enough how great the food was at this warms and cozy place in Norman. We were looking for a different place to eat on a Friday night and decided to try this restaurant that was recommended by a friend. Oh my goodness-it was sooo great! The building was a former train depot so it has interesting... More

I was in Norman (at U. Oklahoma) on business and was treated to Benvenutis. The food was delicious; service was friendly and well informed, and nice atmosphere. We had several excellent appetizers and I had fruitti di mare (pasta with seafood) -- the pasta was homemade and the sauce was delicious, slightly piquant (perfect for me). Good wine list as...

The food and the setting is elegant. I suggest order wine as their cocktails are small and too much ice. A lovely choice all the while.

There shouldn't be an argument over the best place to eat in Norman. Benvenutis is by far the best. The pasta is made from scratch and is about as authentic as you can get. I usually get the "pasta from hell" which is a little too spicy for my wife, but there are many dishes she does love like bucatini... More

Benvenutis is a special place. It is upscale but worth every penny you spend for a meal. Every menu item is fresh and prepared beautifully. I have never had a bad dish and I have been going to the restaurant since it opened. Steaks are always right on. Seafood is fresh and the chef does magical things with the Sea... More

Our experience as a group of 14 was disappointing. We had a reservation on a Friday night. The seating was a long booth along a window in what was essentially a hallway with 6 tables pulled together. Very poorly lit as well, hard to read the menus. The service was decent, but a group this large should have more than... More
