Four of us came for dinner. Restaurant not too busy when we arrived at 5.30pm but soon got busy which made it hard to hear each other. We all enjoyed our meals which were a good size. We have been before and will return.

We went to this restaurant on a Saturday night and it was very busy, but the service and staff were great. The food was well presented and really tasty. One small complaint was that the bottle of water was tepid. After eating the garlic bread,...I actually used to to wash my fingers!More

Thank you for the feedback Mary G. Sorry for the tepid water, sometimes we can't keep up with rotating the chilled version through our fridge! Glad you enjoyed the garlic bread. Looking forward to seeing you soon.

Tutto Benne has so many vegan options they even have a separate vegan menu... how fantastic is that?! We are working our way through it and have not been disappointed, although personally I love pizza and their pizzas are the best. The pastas are pretty...good too though. The service is always fast and friendly, would highly recommend this place!More

Our gluten-free bases are made off-site by a company who specialises in gluten-free products and are certified as such. Our standard pizza dough is made in-house, daily and fresh! Thank you for your question.
