Never disappointed with any aspect of a favorite, locally owned, restaurant of mine; that shows genuine care and appreciation to their guests and community. Impressive for every occasion, or make any occasion impressive. Comfortable elegance-My favorite thing. Reservations are not required; but a good idea.

The food and atmosphere are great. It is pricey. They recommend having a reservation but I've never seen it busy enough to need one.

Benvenutis restaurant is the nicest restaurant in downtown Norman. There are other more casual good places to eat downtown, but Benvenutis is more upscale. As the name suggests, the menu is Italian centric but there are many choices that are imaginative takes on your classic...More

Saturday night with a bigger party. Promptly seated but service throughout the night was a bit spotty - long time getting drinks, a bit of confusion, etc. The meatballs with the spaghetti were great and my wife liked her dish.More
