My wife and I were there on a Sunday night, not many customers. The Escargot's were great. I found that the items we ordered were smothered in one sauce or another. They were each very good, I just found this a little unusual. Service was excellent, the waiter was a relative of the owner, and out of work from his chosen profession. He was very entertaining and attentive. The wine list was extensive and ranged from the common to the exotic. All in all, and excellent restaurant and we would go again if we didn't live seven hours away.

My family held my Birthday dinner here. They were a bit understaffed due to Covid. And yet they still did an awesome job. Thank you so much.
We got to meet the owner...sweet man.

My first time to dine in. I have done take out twice and my husband had a business lunch recently and we love this place! The food is amazing! Love the live music! Service is great as well as the wine list. I recommend the Simi Landslide Cabernet. Delicious!! 😋

We ordered the Ahi Tuna and a Veal dish. Tuna and veal were excellent however the pasta and sauce that came as a side dish was less than impressive. Sauce tasted like it was from a jar and pasta not impressive either. Wine menu was terrible.

Excited to try this place! Their own website had a menu, including HH, which was no longer in existence at the restaurant. So appetizers listed, some not even available to order at normal price, and definitely a significantly smaller HH cocktail choice. Waitress and bartender had no clue what I was talking about. So not the nest start. I ordered the sangria- it was great! And we had a stuffed mushroom app- also excellent. I got the Bolognese for my meal- so good!! They even brought us a small plate of risotto for our one-year-old daughter. This is definitely one of the best places in Cypress we have been to! Would 100% recommend and excited to go back!

Tried this place after a coworker recommended Tutto Bene. Would not recommend eating hear unless you like your food to be scolding hot. We needed to wait a least 5 minutes for the food to be warm enough to eat. The pasta fagioli was so hot. It was probably microwave for 15 minutes on high. I don’t think you could get any hotter if you boiled it. Seafood dishes we had same thing. Pasta actually burned my mouth. If you want your food super hot and cooked in a microwave come here. Also food did not taste fresh.

It was awful. We made NYrs Eve reservations looking forward to the fixed menu, music & wine. We ordered stuffed mushrooms and a special-for-the-evening shrimp appetizer, Sea Bass & Veal Chop, salad and vegetable (broccoli) of the day. Everything had the same flavor/sauce. Veal chop mostly fat. My salad which was once amazing, was now a slice of tomato on old mixed greens. Broccoli was cold. Brought dessert home, to be surprised that in each container was approximately 2 tablespoons of Bread Pudding. So disappointed. $200 ($30 wine) Know before you go!

The food was tasteless, the steak was chewy and sinewy...on New Year’s Eve at those prices it was the biggest disappointment I’ve had, foodwise. And to call yourself an Italian restaurant when your alfredo sauce tastes like nothing more than heavy cream... it’s disgraceful.

Tutto Bene was fantastic in every way, I just don’t know how it could have been any better. We were there on a Wednesday night, our table of 4 ordered the sea bass, tuna, and salmon. Everyone loved their food! I had the sea bass; it was fresh (no fishy taste), had great flavor, and a nice crust on the outside. I thought it was one of the best sea bass dishes I have ever had. It was served with broccoli and pasta; both were very good. Our server was very friendly and attentive. The wine was priced as I would expect. We didn’t have appetizers or dessert, I want to try the calamari next time. This was such a great experience, I wish I had found this restaurant sooner. We drove 30 minutes to get there, I thought it was well worth the drive.

The food was great but it would be really nice if entrees came with a dinner salad! The wait staff was great and very accommodating. The biggest negative was the lighting in the back room-it was very dark and hard to read the menu. The tables were extremely close which made it tight to move around. The live music was phenomenal!

This was the first time we visited this restaurant. The online reservation was quick and easy. They email a confirmation and called the day before to confirm. Our table was ready when we got there and was seated. The service and food was great and prices were inline with other Italian restaurants. The noise level was low and this was on mother’s day with large groups around us. We enjoyed it and will go back.

This was our first time taking our daughter and fiance' to dinner together and we were very disappointed with our visit. We really are nice to all service employees and always try to not be demanding people. This is my first bad review but I feel I must share our experience. To start our waiter was either overworked or just plain horrible and only cared about certain tables. First we felt that we were shoved in a corner and just plain forgot about. Finally the waiter decided to stop to get our order. We had waited so long that we just placed the drink and food order at once time as we were afraid he wouldn't return again for another 15 minutes. Our appetizers were brought to the table another 15 minutes later and without surprise we still hadn't received our drinks. Not even water. Again not picky people but come on. I finally was able to get the waiters attention and he actually gave us attitude for asking if we could please get our drinks. Halfway through the appetizers the drinks did show up. The main courses seemed okay and tasted fine at the time. I found out different later that evening as I ended up getting sick pretty much all night long. We so wanted to like the place as Italian is our favorite. Severely disappointed and will never, ever, go to this restaurant again.

We definitely will dine again at this restaurant. The food was very good and the service was excellent.
The waiter offered a very nice wine selection. When I made the reservation I asked for a quiet area and they honored my request for a table of 6. They do have live music in the bar area but it was not too loud at our table in the corner. The selections on the menu were reasonably priced. They had a a specialty menu that was more expensive. All six of us loved our food.

We had a wonderful time. The restaurant was great at recommending Italian wines for us to try. We went for a birthday dinner.

Tortellini - outstanding
Amatriciana - outstanding
Mussels in white wine sauce - some of the best i've had. Very clean, no grit
Mushroom caps were fantastic
Caesar was okay - a bit to creamy of dressing for my liking but everyone else seemed to really enjoy it
Seabass was fresh - waiter said it was brought in the day prior. The seabass isn't the thick cut its a thinner cut so keep that in mind when ordering. I would ask them to prepare it a little less done. Mine was a bit crispy on top which made it a bit dry. The sauce it was served in with the roasted garlic cloves incredible!
The pasta with marinara was delish!
Especially loved the sauce Tortellini was in.

Quaint spot. Would absolutely go back and try some things again and a lot of new items.

Wine list is nice as well.

Wow to everything. This place has atmosphere, friendly service, and really good food, all at very reasonable prices. It's not Sorrento, but definitely qualifies to be it's younger brother. On the other hand, you're not paying Sorrento prices or dealing with the tight parking downtown -- and it saves the long drive for those of us who live in Cypress. Definitely worth repeated visits!

All of us but one had the Chilean sea bass. OMG was it ever delicious! The other party had the lasagna and said it was good. He is a big eater and made a comment that definitely could have eaten more. In fact he apparently went home and made a bowl of cereal.
Quite honestly, I can't wait to go back.
