Vegan Dinner Oasis - Edit

This moderately-priced restaurant has a pleasant, casual atmosphere, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the food is very good. They have a separate vegan menu but you need to ask for it. The most important aspect is that they are open for dinner when most other vegan-friendly restaurants are not. The pizza was filled with a variety of vegetables - artichoke hearts, olives, spinach, tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms, and vegan cheese with a delightful, crisp wood-fired crust - and the salad was made from mixed greens with shredded carrots, tomatoes, cucumber, and olives. We split both items between two hungry people and it was enough to satisfy. The only vegan desert option was three flavors of sorbet - lemon, raspberry, and coconut - served on a drizzle of raspberry puree and crushed pistachios. You could order three scoops of one flavor if you want. They all had intense, real fruit flavor. Very tasty over all!

Pros: Open in the evening, separate vegan menu.

Amazing vegan pizza. - Edit

Very busy Italian restaurant. The pizza really is amazing. The best vegan pizza I've had in years. The cheese was excellent and very much like how I remember regular cheese. Very nice and helpful staff.

Just remember, you have to ask for the vegan menu.

Pros: Amazing vegan pizza

Cons: They don't have the vegan options on the standard

Amazing service and food - Edit

I loved my time here at Tutto Bene- They have a vegan menu that you have to ask for. There wasn't too many options in the pasta section so i opted for a pumpkin pizza. The owner came around and spoke about how many vegans come into their restaurant now and that he loves it.

Romantic spot :)

Pros: Great waitstaff, Cozy and romantic, Vegan Menu

Cons: Would be better to have more pasta choices

impressed - Edit

I loved how they had a great vegan menu with a range of options!
I did have to ask for the menu as it wasn't automatically on the table with their traditional set menu.
I was impressed with my pizza and also my first time trying vegan cheese which was cool.
They even had vegan wine 🍷
Would recommend this restaurant

Good but simple - Edit

Firstly, they have a menu just for vegans. So already winning. The food and atmosphere is good too. Been there twice now.
The only bit of criticism is that the pasta dishes could be a bit more adventurous.

The best pizzas - Edit

I thought I knew what good pizza tasted like but I was wrong. The pizza at Tutto Bene (complete with vegan cheese) is truly the best pizza I have ever tasted. It has ruined me for takeaway pizza now. I can also recommend the bruschetta which was also wonderful with great flavours and texture. I really appreciate having a restaurant I can go to if I have to go out with non veggies and need somewhere which can suit both parties. They also do work functions. Very good location on main road opposite Merivale Mall so easy to find parking in the mall car park or park your bike right outside. This is a very popular place so reservations recommended.

Pros: vegan menu, vegan cheese, authentic Italian

Cons: limited vegan desserts

Jesus Christ - Edit

This place is cute to death, and they have an entire vegan menu, all with vegan cheese. They also have vegan wine.

The owner made some slights at being vegan, which I was able to totally overlook cause I had pizza going into my face.
