“Poor experience - never got to try the food!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

We passed this restaurant and parked to try it for lunch on a sunny June day. We found a table outside and waited to be spotted. A Waiter did pop his head out but noone came out so after 5 minutes I went inside and took a couple of menus so we could make our choices. A waiter did now appear and his first request was for us to move to a table for two - we were seated at a table for four but it was not busy inside or outside! We elected to leave altogether so never got to try the food. We ended up in Caffe Baglioni and had a lovely lunch so Tamburino not only lost out they did us a favour!

“Fantastic all round experience”

The best Italian had outside Italy. Enjoyed the food and wonderful service at a reasonable price. The special sword fish was truly delicious

“Great Italian eating experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

A real italian restaurant in the heart of a quintessential English town. Great! Didn't try the pasta, but it looked good. The pizza was the best for miles! The service is genuine 'Italian' (and much better than some of the other eating establishments in town). A real find, particularly on a Monday night when most of the town's other restaurants are closed. Next time I'll do the whole antipasto/pasta/dessert experience - after fasting for a couple of days! A great find and thoroughly recommended.

“Well Done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

We visit Sherborne about twice a year and by chance found Tamburino Gold and pleased we did. Great hospitality something so many restaurants fail to offer. Waiter took time on a busy evening to engage in conversation. A birthday on an adjacent table was marked with cake candles and all sing happy birthday adding to a good evening with in my opinion above average food and complimentary liqueur. .Well done.

“The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

I have eaten in this restaurant, on average once a week for about 2 years. We have been with children, parents, on our own and with party's of 20 or more. Nothing is ever to much trouble, the food is excellent and the staff are brilliant. If you are in or near Sherborne you should go.
