The atmosphere is lively and friendly in this very busy restaurant. Food and wine was delicious (huge menu to choose from) and the service was fantastic. Would absolutely recommend to anyone searching for an authentic Italian meal in a great location. Can't wait to go back next time we are in Christchurch.

The service is incredibly friendly, and the atmosphere is very bubbly. Great fun. The food is quite good, but definitely not the best italian in Christchurch.

We have been here twice with my brother and family when visiting Christchurch from the U.K. The last time being January 2014. Big family togethers.

I visited Tutte Bene located in the heart of Merivale, Christchurch, while I was travelling in the city. It is a spacious and open restaurant with warm decor. It is a busy restaurant, which thrives off of the energy of the patrons and guests and this makes for a fun and enjoyable evening. The Italian menu is delicious with fresh,... 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).
