Located just east of Christiansted, our new location features a spacious bar, chef's table in the kitchen, and secure parking lot!

Our spacious private dining room can accommodate private parties, wedding receptions and special occasion dinners but still keeping with the intimate, Italian family dinner atmosphere.

“Rough start, great finish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013 via mobile

We literally stumbled upon Tutto Bene after an unsuccessful attempt to find a spontaneous dinner restaurant to catch our eye in Christiansted on a sleepy Sunday night. The visit started out rocky when we were greeted by a hostess / waitress that appeared to be exhausted and none-too-thrilled that she had another new table. She proceeded to inform us that the place would probably be clearing out soon (it was 8pm), so we felt a little pressured. Things took a positive turn from there. Although service started slow and never sped up, we decided to accept it as the "island pace" that we were just starting to get used to. We both ordered the flatbread pizzas and they were outstanding. The great finale was when the other waiter on duty (who had already checked in on us once, because he was aware of the slow pace) came over to our table, thanked us for our patience through the evening, and proceeded to pour us shots...on the house... and visited with us for a long time. Take it from a guy who's been in the restaurant / bar industry for a long time. The great food and that type of personal touch is what brings people, including us, back to your restaurant!!

“Where do I start??”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

We literally stumbled "on" to going to this fantabulous restaurant! This was the last time we have been to St. Croix too! We'd go back, just for the food! We were on the Island this time for 9 days. We went there 3 times!! The food, and the owners, Kelly and Smokey were fantastic. We sat at the VIP table our last time there. (it's in the kitchen! loved it!! ) What more really can we say? We sent every tourist we met there within those 9 days and actually ran into a couple we had referred. They too, loved it. This is a place that not only serves the best food, wine, desserts, etc., but it is warm and comfortable and you feel like family immediately. I do have a picture of the 4 of us, somewhere...I have to find it. :) We kept in touch w/Kelly especially for a good couple of years,but as things go, not for a while now and I am sorry about that. I hope they are still "doin it" because this is a GREAT place!! Period!

The Pizza at Tutto Bene is very, very good. Thin and Crist crust with wonderful toppings. The pasta is also very good but be prepared for HUGE portions.

“Had great meal and won two theater tickets to CCT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

Loved the dinner and the entertainment provided by the cast of CCT. They did some short skits of their current show called Romantic Fools which was hilarious. Following the skits they had a contest for two tickets that required you to know is what does the acronym CCT mean? The answer is Caribbean Community Theater and our table answered first and won. If you get to St Croix be sure to look them up (cct.vi) for an entertaining evening.
