We always visit Tutto Bene when in Melbourne. This time we enjoyed Risotto which was generous and delicious. The complimentary olives was a nice touch and the service was friendly and attentive.

We visited on a quiet evening so the service was very good if a little slow. The salami plate of meats as an entree was huge, in fact I thought it was a serving for 2 people and was very tasty. We both ordered risotto...More
