Excellent Italian food with a great range of pizza and pasta on offer, perfect for sharing “family style”! An authentic Italian style restaurant which feels cosy with great food and beverages to match! We enjoyed our Aperol Spritz, a classic European cocktail, which was perfectly...executed and went down a treat. The pizzas were cooked perfectly in the wood fire with crust bubbles (my favourite) and a suitable amount of toppings. The pasta dishes were equally delicious (I always like a little more sauce with mine, but that’s a preference) and the extra Parmesan offered was a nice touch. Couple of basil leaves on top would have been ideal and would finish all the dishes off nicely (again a preference). Service was great and attentive, thanks team! We look forward to our next visit!More

Ate at Tutto Bene on our trip to Christchurch and enjoyed the ambiance and meal. The Restaurant was busy and obviously popular in the orange level covid environment. The wait staff followed the Alert level requirements which added reassurance to our visit. Our orders were...taken quickly and efficiently and we were served promptly and attentively. We enjoyed the pizzas we ordered which definitely met my wife's high standard definition. The timarasu my wife ordered for dessert was greeted with enthusiasm by her. Well worth the visit.More

All I can say is, "go there". I have dined at Tutto Bene many times, alone, couple, groups of friends, and no one has ever been disappointed by anything, other than the time limit on one's stay but that should say something about how popular...it is and for good reason.More

Tutto bene has definitely declined since lockdown last year. I got the gnocchi, and there was barely any sauce/beef cheek, very underwhelming when it used to be one of my favourite dishes in town, and the pizzas are considerably smaller. The service was all goodMore

Thanks so much for the review nurseylu367. Sorry to hear your gnocchi wasn't up to our usual standard. Would you mind messaging me through this platform and I'll sort something for you next time you dine with us? We are keen to earn your gnocchi...More

We had a pizza, chicken dish and vegan gnocchi. All were cooked perfectly, delicious and beautifully presented. Wide selection of drinks added the value of the restaurant.

It is probably hard trying to operate under level 3 and we appreciate having dinner cooked for us but felt the meal we had tonight wasn't your usual standard! Felt the meals were probably smaller than when we dine in. The vegan spaghetti meatballs only...had 4 meatballs and couldn't taste many herbs. The vegan gnocchi was OK. The crispy potato skins and carbonara was enjoyed.More

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.

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.
