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.

This is a great little Italian restaurant. The food is very authentic and tastes spot on and the setting makes you feel like you are in Italy. I would suggest booking as it gets very busy and you may be in close proximity to other diners, as it's very intimate. 9/10
Great food and friendly service. I have never been disappointed and will continue to return. It has a great atmosphere, although can be pretty noisy as tables are pretty close together. It is a BYO which is a bonus as well.
