Terrific choice of menu for kids and adults in an Italian atmosphere. Numerous types of pizzas, pastas and other meals together with several entrees and deserts after. We were well looked after and the cost was reasonable, well worth the food and service.

Enjoyed the service and restaurant, food was spectacular full of flavour. A little noisy in front of restaurant preferred the rear where the atmosphere is more pleasant.

Tasted like when we were in Italy! My husband liked his so much we went back the next night and had the same meal. He had veal parmesan and I had pizza. We were very happy with our meals and are looking forward to returning again.

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).
