For a lively dining experience, Tutto Bene Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria, in the heart of Merivale, is the most popular Italian style Restaurant 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 full of flavour. The team prepare most ingredients in-house, including smoked salmon, smoked chicken, Italian sausage, gnocchi, lasagne, ricotta, marscapone, ciabatta, grissini, gelato, sorbet and biscotti.
The menu is huge and full of variety; 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.
