From entry to exit we were treated warmly, yet professionally. The seafood fettuccine was delicious with just a taste of chilli in the tomato sauce. Unfortunately no room for dessert although the menu was enticing. Excellent wine list, priced reasonably by the glass.

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).
