The food was very authentic. The gnocchi was as good as Nonna's and the pizza was delicious too. Definitely recommend

Our Gnocchi (sticky slow-braised beef cheek mixed with house-made potato gnocchi & leeks) is made with a lot of love with Nonna in mind! I'm glad it is up to standard! Thank you stef804 More

Just moved here from London. Was looking for an authentic Italian place and I found it in Tutto Bene. Authentic flavours and a lovely atmosphere. Will definitely be a regular watering hole in Christchurch.

Delicious food, friendly staff and a great place for anyone. It gets very busy so a booking is recommended, particularly on weekends.

A great place for anyone is correct, BalwantSingh2015! We are one of few restaurants that offers an exceptional dining experience to everyone! Young, old, singles, couples, groups, tourists, locals, families, business meetings.. ! Booking is essential. Weekends are very popular, but if you're looking for a calmer night then head in on a Monday evening. Thank you More

Beautiful food and excellent service. We could not fault our night out at Tutto Bene. The calamari entree was especially delicious. Also the garlic bread was soft and beautifully cooked.We had a grande pizza and it was delicious and we could not eat it all so took enough home for lunch the next day.

Yum! It is a popular trend at Tutto Bene to order a Grande pizza with the thought to take some home for tomorrow's lunch. (It takes discipline not to devour the whole pizza though..!) Thanks for the review, Leigh More

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).
