“Still happy after years.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 22 September 2014

We were here again on sunday 21-09-14 with 2 friends that never have been in a Italian restaurant.
I had the Filetto di Manzo as a mains and I can honestly say that it it was the most tender perfectly cooked steak I EVER had. Been all over the word and years in Italie and sometimes you find a special situation that is worth mentioning.This evening was one of those. I like to have a few more garlic cloves with my warm olives though. And this time we had some Italian music that set the right ambiance. We will certainly be back to try the rest of the new menu. Thanks from Bert Wierkx


“Noisy, full of life and the food is good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 21 September 2014

I live in this city and I return to Tutte Bene often. Always busy, noisy and crowded and that is part of the attraction. No whispering over a candlelit white tablecloth here. The food is consistent, about as Italian as you can get outside of Italy or the USA, and the service is good. Deserves its popularity. Make reservations.


“the best italian food in south island!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 18 September 2014

i am hardcore pasta lover and tutto bene is the only restaurant i will recommend for anyone who wants to enjoy a beautiful italian night out. the service is amazing, the food we ordered was the seafood past and my god it is just amazing, the mussels, grilled prawns, calamari rings in the pasta makes it truly world class. its very hard to get a table during the weekend so always remember to reserve.

love this place… highly recommended!!!
