We go often with our girls. Always get great service and our pizzas are lovely, good size and the pastas and desserts very good. BYO so it is always a good idea to bring your wine. Love going to Tutto Bene!!!

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).
