Had lovely meal here of arancini and squid starter, then salad and seafood chowder. Also tried pasta for my daughter and that was huge and tasty, well and truly filling her up. The service was very attentive and we had a very pleasant time.

Met up with a friend who booked us into this restaurant we were a party of nine when we arrived the restaurant was very busy and our table wasn’t ready but the owner showed us to a table in the garden area where we had drinks the atmosphere of the whole place was great.
When our table was ready we were looked after very well and the food was excellent we had various dishes pasta, lamb, pizza ( huge) everything was perfect!
We all would highly recommend Tutto Bene for their excellent food and service .
