“Scrumptious!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Visited this, lovely boutique restaurant whilst staying in Melbourne last week. Beautiful risottos made here - I had the pumpkin and walnut risotto, simply delicious. My other friends had the mushroom risotto and the chilli crab risotto. They were all enjoyed by us very much. For dessert we ALL had gelato from the special window at the front of the store. Flavours were devine, it was very hard to choose. Would definitely recommend people dine here, although don't forget to book.

“Triffic tutto bene”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

This was our second visit to tutto bene and it was even better than the first. Great food, excellent service and a pretty nice spot overlooking the river. I had the fritto misto with some lovely scallops, prawn and fish followed by the beef short rib and both were delicious. The beef fell off the bone and was beautiful and tender. My wife had the pork cutlet which was thick, rich and succulent (her words). The meals on first impression are not large but are beautifully presented and with a generous side of potatoes are more than sufficient. We were very happy with our meals. The service was very attentive but not over bearing. We finished the night with an affogatto, although not on the menu, the waiter said they do them all the time. It was fantastic as their ice cream was soft and creamy and went well with the coffee and Tia Maria. We will be back.

“Great Risotto”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We were short of time so just had Risotto with a shared rocket salad. The salad was amazing, full of fresh parmesan slices and very tasty. The Risotto was one of the best I've had. I had mushroom and my partner had the tomato and sausage risotto. Delicious! Lovely chianti with the meal and a beautiful view of the river. Wish we had more time and could go for dinner. Also, after some average service in Melbourne, the service here was outstanding.

“Its all good at lunch Time”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We have been for lunch twice in the past couple of months. On each occasion we have ordered the "Special Menu" which is good value for money. The food has been excellent in quality and the portions have been generous. We could not resist, however, ordering the superb gelati as an extra. The service on each occasion was friendly and efficient. The view of the river and the Melbourne skyline is really engaging and adds to a most pleasant experience.

“Great spot & yummy food!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

We are here last night -$180 for the 3 of us. I thought good value considering we had 3 mains, 2 glasses of wine each & a side salad & calamari entree. The mains we ordered were the duckling - moist & crisp skin, the fish - not too fishy & lovely & soft, the gnocchi - so light and fluffy with a yummy yet simple classic sauce. It's in a great spot, especially at night. Would be lovely in summer with all the windows open. They also catered to the fact we had to be out at a certain time to catch a show. Would 100% go here again.
