For the entire month of November as part of The Age Good Food Month, Southgate’s restaurants are serving up their favourite Signature Dish along with a matching glass of wine or beer (or cocktail) from $15 to $35.
As part of the The Age Good Food Month’s Signature Dish festivities at Southgate, Tutto Bene will be serving up their Granchio Risotto.
A Tutto Bene signature risotto, the Granchio Risotto was a stunning dish which combined spanner crab perfectly with tomato and chilli. As expected, it was superbly executed. The rice in the risotto was puffy and al-dente and, coupled with generous amounts of tender spanner crab and lashings of chilli, had a wonderful depth of flavour. The risotto had hints of fresh seafood with a robust undercurrent.
The glass of Te Mata chardonnay, Hawkes Bay NZ was the perfect match. The wine was fresh and expressive with floral and peach notes which cut through the heat from the Granchio Risotto perfectly.
A meal at Tutto Bene would of course be incomplete without some of their delicious gelato.
We love Tutto Bene's gelato. The quality ingredients mean the results speak for themselves - texturely perfect gelato with beautiful flavours. The passion for artistic expression using quality ingredients can be tasted in each scoop.
As always, our meal at Tutto Bene was of excellent quality. “Tutto Bene” is an Italian phrase that translates literally to “everything’s good” - a highly appropriate name which evokes memories of the warm familial atmosphere, of the consistent excellence of its cuisine and, inevitably, of their revered risotto.
