Literally translating to ‘everything is good’, Tutto Bene is an authentic Italian eatery headed up by Italian Head Chef Nathan Scarfo.
Boasting spectacular views of the Yarra and the bustling area below its second-storey vantage point, this gorgeous spot is perfect for a work lunch, pre-theatre meal, or a night out with friends.
The authentic menu, specialising in risotto, has a super-exciting, modern spin on classics. Their carrot arancini is shaped like a carrot with activated charcoal and carrot leaves on top – resembling a freshly picked version. A selection of risotto is available, such as capesante risotto, dark black, with scallops and black truffle, or funghi misti risotto, featuring mixed seasonal mushrooms, parmigiano and aromatic herbs. Likewise, there’s a selection of pasta dishes, such as house-made squid ink fusilli, which comes with a calamari bolognese, or there’s a lasagne with a mix of pork and lamb. Fish of the day may be a seared red emperor fillet on a creamy Sicilian oregano puree, crispy kale, capers and a rich, lush lemon butter reduction.
PSST! Tutto Bene has a fabulous lunch special: two courses and a glass of Victorian wine for $40.
