Benetutti (Sardinian: Benetuti) is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Sassari in the Italian region Sardinia, located about 190 kilometres (120 mi) north of Cagliari and about 91 kilometres (57 mi) southeast of Sassari.
Several prehistorical archaeological remains have been discovered in its countryside. These include Giants' tombs (Bronze Age mass graves), Domus de Janas (hypogaean Neolithic graves) and several nuraghi. An example of Roman ruins is the bath-pool on Saint Saturnino's hot springs. Benetutti is known for its thermal sources, famous since ancient times and probably related to the name of the village, which could come from the Sardinian bena 'e tottu, meaning "everyone's fountain".
One of the most famous inhabitants of the village was Francesco Cocco Ortu, who was a minister of the Kingdom of Italy.
In the main church hangs a 1549 painting by the "Maestro di Ozieri", Giovanni del Giglio, and assistants.
