Four of us visited for dinner on December 2nd, it was a really busy Friday night and all 4 of us couldn't fault the entire experience. The Braised Beef Ravioli was absolutely plate licking delicious. Because of this wonderful meal 2 of us went back last night, the restaurant was not busy like on our first visit, and sadly the... More

After scouring Trip Advisor for recommended restaurants for our final night in Christchurch we opted for this one..and we were very happy with our choice . Firstly it has the atmosphere of a real Italian restaurant and the food was just like Italians make it. I had the delicious prawn starter and then we shared a large size pizza which... More

I had heard a lot about Tutto Bene and finally got to try it myself. Professional service and a brilliant pizza, well filled and very tasty. Next time in Christchurch I will bring more time to try more of their menu.

You can see why this place has such a great reputation - service is excellent and food is YUMMY!! Always full so it's wise to book a table ahead of time. Indoor and outdoor seating and adequate parking. Large menu which can leave you a bit confused as everything sounds good. Yes, you're right - tastes real good too! Wood... More

Description
For a lively dining experience, Tutto Bene Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria, in the heart of Merivale, is one of the most popular restaurants in Christchurch.

As you step through the doors, you are transported to a “little piece of Italy”; a lovingly-amassed collection of Italian memorabilia adorns the walls, strains of Italian music fill the air and the atmosphere is bustling.



The culinary vision at Tutto Bene is to create dishes where the ingredients shine through – fresh and authentic. The hard-working team prepares many ingredients in-house, including smoked salmon, smoked chicken, Italian sausage, gnocchi, lasagne, ricotta, marscapone, ciabatta, grissini, gelato, sorbet and biscotti.

The menu is varied; delicious main courses (including steak and lamb) sit alongside pasta dishes and Tutto Bene’s renowned hand-stretched pizza. An extensive Italian wine list completes the picture.



Tutto Bene has long been a firm favourite for groups with set menus tailored to the occasion.



During the warmer months, the al fresco dining area, overlooking our conservation reserve 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).
