this restaurant had well prepared, fresh, and reasonably priced food. the service was excellent. the best part of the meal was the home made rolls. like beignets, without the sugar. am still dreaming about them. gorgeous setting as well.

Tranquil venue ideal for hot summer days and evenings. The menu is compact but with enough variety to satisfy my picky family. Our dishes were well prepared with an elegant twist to some all time favorites. I can recommend the cheese platters and cold cut hams and salamis. The owner/manager was utterly charming and one large group of local friends/colleagues... More

We stumbled across this hidden gem in Bologna. Ordered a salumi platter and a cheese platter and 2 glasses of wine and everything was fabulous. Couldn't have asked for more variety or higher quality. Frankly blew Tambourini away. Lovely uncrowded setting, linen covered tables, friendly service.

The restaurant is located close to city center and was open on Easter Sunday... The food was reasonable and affordable, although the cheese platter was on the expensive side (15 Euros). The service was nice but the waitresses could not speak English.

Thank's for your visit. Not all our staff speak a fluent english, it's true.... That's probably the reason of your disappointment about the price of the selection of cheeses. It's a very fine selection with jam and crescentine included. Nobody explained you which kind of specialities you were eating. I'm very sorry... In fact we serve cheese seasoned in the... More

Dinner meal with family - lovely courtyard setting - very pleasant and attentive waiting staff. Food was very good - crostini, tomato/mozzarella salad and great pasta dishes - excellent wine list. Lovely evening.

we have been here before once for lunch which was an excellent experience. last night we attended again. it was not terrible but not up to the previous standard. service was slow, an expensive bottle of wine not properly chilled. a pasta was not al dente but undercooked. Despite asking I am still waiting for a napkin. The waiting staff... More

I really don't image what happened that night! The moon? The heat?? The tiredness? I can't remember you, the couple of tourists from Australia who asked for a napkin, but I hope we will have another opportunity with you! best regards. Silvia More

Maybe it was the basement setting or the nondescript menu or maybe it was because it was Sunday night and perhaps chef's night off, I don't know. All to say, I had a salami and cheese plate which I could have done back at my apartment, pasta bolognese which was good but not great. My companion had a limp lettuce... More
