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).

“Birthday Party”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This event was a surprise birthday party for me and this was an ideal place for it....big table, busy fun atmosphere, efficient and friendly staff. The food was typical "Italian" based style and tasty, filling and good value. I've been there before and would suggest t to others for a fun good value venue. Cheers

“Best pizza bread?!?”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

It had a great menu and food was yummy. Favourite was the pizza bread. Service was quick and efficient. Great place to take your partner or the family depending on the time of night.

“Ten out of ten”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We picked up a recommendation for this restaurant whilst visiting friends in Christchurch a couple of weeks ago. .... and so glad we did. We were expecting the typical Italian meal and were very pleasantly surprised by the interesting menu: these chefs have flair and are obviously interested in creating something a 'bit above the average'. But even more importantly, the service was great: friendly, unobtrusive and nothing was too much trouble.
Loved the seafood risotto so much we went back for a second night.
