Although the food was good and tasty, the place was let done by it's poor service. When we arrived we were not offered any drinks to start and then it took a long time for them to ask us what we would like. Although we told them we were going to a show it didn't seem to make too much... More

My favorite dish in the world is Mushroom Gnocchi- and Tutto Bene nailed it- Seriously best ever!! I made everyone on our table try it and they all agreed. Silky delicious gnocchi with a full earthy mushroom flavor.

Risottos, spaghettini, gnocchi and lasagna are beautiful. Great table service in a premium location. One of the best Italian restaurants I have been to

We dined here in the Southgate area prior to a show in the State Theatre. The service was efficient and attentive and the food excellent. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and outlook over the Yarra River. It would have been perfect if there was a little more on the plate though.

What a supurb and amazing experience: $55 for Chef's selection: the food just kept coming! Made up of delicious 'dishes of the day" from every category; including dessert and Italian coffee! It was a truly Italian lunch experience! Every sense was wowed by the flavours, smells and sight of so many delicious sides and salads and sweets. All washed down... More

What a wonderful dining experience. The chefs choice was delightful & exciting. The food was amazing. The wine list was filled with wines that were the very best without the outrageous price tag. The service from the staff was very professional so nice to see staff who love there work & food. The resturant looks at over the river, so... More

Good food however not value for money. From purely monetary value it is not too expensive in Southgate area, but the portion of mains are very small which makes it more expensive than many Melbourne's fine dining restaurants. I ordered Duck for main, on the menu it said "boneless half duck", for $38 I didn't realize it means no duck... More

We ate off the specials menu today. Two courses and a wine $40. My partner ordered the calamari stuffed with risotto, garlic, chilli and rocket and for myself the swiss brown mushrooms baked and served with taleggio and walnuts. Second course for him the risotto risi e bisi and for me the fish of the day, snapper. Presentation was great... More
