This restaurant was highly recommended by our hotel and tripadvisor, so I was a bit disappointed to find the food lacking. It wasn't terrible, but do not come here expecting the best Italian food you've ever had. We split a lasagna and a diavola pizza--the...More

Thank you for the balanced feedback sunshinelover33. The Diavola; Napoli sauce, salami, anchovies, olives, fresh tomato, garlic & chilli certainly isn't for the fainthearted! Last year we took it off the pizza menu, but the regulars just kept on ordering it regardless, so now it's...More

We went to this restaurant because it was open till late... but we returned for another reason. Service was excellent and the food was divine. Being an Italian restaurant, we tried both pizza and pasta and all dishes were to die for.

Thrilled to hear of your discovery Karen P. Thank you for the feedback. Our steak, lamb and fish-of-the-day dishes are also very well-received. And... we have a dedicated vegan menu. Did you try one of our desserts?

On both occasions we arrived at the restaurant without a reservation and we were fitted in and the staff were friendly and efficient and the food was excellent. We will definitely go again sometime.

Was a great meal, was so nice and filling. The staff are wonderful and out waiter was a lot of fun. Not too spacious indoors but isn't too bad if you don't have a large group.

Description
Tutto Bene Italian Restaurant Pizzeria is one of the most popular restaurants in Christchurch. Be transported to a “little piece of Italy” as you step through the doors. View our lovingly-amassed collection of Italian memorabilia on the walls, breathe in the delicious aromas of pizza and pause for a moment to take in the atmosphere. Our culinary vision is to deliver to you a mix of dishes - Italian- style and local favourites. The menu is varied; delicious main courses (including steak and lamb) sit alongside pasta dishes and Tutto Bene’s renowned pizza (Tutto Bene crust ~ Tutto Bene combinations!). The hard-working team prepares many ingredients in-house, including Italian sausage, gnocchi, ravioli, ricotta, ciabatta, grissini, gelato, sorbet and biscotti. An extensive Italian wine list completes the picture. Friday / Saturday has a really bustling, busy vibe to it - early week is quieter and Sunday is perfect for a family dinner. Tutto Bene is a firm favourite for groups with group menus tailored to the occasion and details taken care of by our groups co-ordinator. Gluten-free? Dairy-free? Vegan? Allergies? talk to us and we can accommodate your dietary requirements. During the warmer months, the al fresco dining area, overlooking our native garden and stream is a magical spot. We look forward to welcoming you. Open 7 days a week from 5.00pm until late Fully licenced Takeaway menu available Location: 192 Papanui Road (directly opposite the main entrance to Merivale Mall).
