Truly a special place for dinner. Very creative and consistently above average. Especially for a place in the Northwoods.

Had a bruschetta sampler appetizer (rabbit, traditional, and ham hock). It was good. Entree, had the cavatelli w/ cheddar wurst, it was fine, nothing to write home about though. It is nice that they make their pasta in house, but if i had to guess, they didnt salt the water, it was very bland. And the tiramisu for dessert..... They... More

As I am from New Orleans, good food is a way of life. Finding Tutto Bene here in Bemidji, MN North Woods was a welcome find. Certainly Tutto Bene knows fine food. Tutto is not just masquerading behind an Italian name. I posted few pics of salad, soup, ravioli. Nice balance of flavors, presented nicely. I particularly liked the soup..wish... More

This is seriously fine creative fare, unusual combinations of ingredients and lovely presentation. The prices are amazingly good given the quality of the cuisine. The menu allows for small or half portions on many items, which is great because you need room for appetizers or dessert to appreciate their varied offerings! The waiter was very friendly and attentive, but a... More

Maybe it's just me but we did not fall in love with this place. The pasta I had was pretty bland, the bread we were served tasted old, and the price was ridiculous for the tiny portions we received. Shouldn't pay a lot and leave still hungry. That all being said they have changed owners since I have been there... More

You are correct that the business is under new ownership. The only thing that stayed the same was the name, the menu and décor are all new and different. We are a from scratch kitchen run by two culinary trained chefs. We encourage you to come in again and experience the new restaurant and write a review based on the... More

Seriously good food. We’ve enjoyed dining at Tutto Bene since the mid-90s. Owners have changed twice since then, and each has elevated the dining experience. For close to 2 years now, the current iteration of this Bemidji landmark restaurant has offered superb fare. We’ve never had a bad entree, but we particularly enjoy the seafood. It’s of a quality rarely... More

We had read all the towering reviews, and I think we had excessive expectations. The food was very good, especially for a small town like this. However, here's what held me to 4 stars: 1) The antipasti dish had delicious meats, cheese, and such. But needs some crisp or marinated veggies too. 2) The waitstaff was dismissive and disengaged. Not... More

We were at the restaurant last night. Our server did a very poor job. He didn't want to ask my husband a second time so just didn't put in his soup order. Which in hind sight we should have let it go....the asparagus soup was not that good. We ordered the crab ravioli as an appetizer for the entire family.... More

This is our favorite place in Bemidji! Great food using local fare that's unusual yet authentic. We have never had a bad meal here, we love the Beer Meals when they partner with the local brewery. The hangar steak is my husband's fave, I like the pastas and salads too! You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
