Book a table at the Italian Restaurant in Norwich people love to eat at ...

You’ll find Benoli Italian restaurant in Norwich city centre, tucked away at the bottom of Timber Hill. Since opening in July 2019, Benoli has quickly become renowned as one of the best Italian restaurants in Norwich – not just because of our fantastic food, inspired by top quality ingredients, cooked with skill and care.

We focus on great service and our friendly, knowledgeable staff are on hand to explain the menu and recommend dishes for you. Combined with a lovely, modern décor and great atmosphere, we offer an experience that motivates customers to return again and again.

Creative Italian inspired 

Chef/owner Oliver Boon and his talented kitchen team bring all their experience together to bring simple but creative Italian inspired cuisine to Norwich. They have worked in, and headed up, some of the country’s top restaurants and have been heavily influenced by Italian food whilst travelling.

We specialise in handmade fresh pasta but offer far more than a standard pasta restaurant. You’ll find a wide choice of other dishes on the menu and we not only cater for meat and fish lovers, but vegetarians and vegans too. It changes regularly and often with the season. Please visit our about us page to find out more.

We love to make customers happy

“I really enjoy running Benoli and we’re very excited to be cooking the food I believe people love to eat. I wanted to create a new Italian restaurant that serves the kind of food that I was brought up on as a child whilst travelling around Sicily and Italy,” says Oliver.

“Judging by the fantastic reviews we’ve had from customers (see below), they adore our food. Many say the restaurant is the best Italian they have been to outside of Italy. We love to make them happy!

It’s great to be part of, and contributing to, such a creative city as Norwich that has such an exciting food and art scene.

What’s better in the world than being surrounded by good people eating fresh pasta, amazing cheese, great wine and strong coffee? That’s what Benoli is about.”
