We went for a family trip to Bolsena and found this nice and modern trattoria. We did not have pizza, but rather opted for fried appetizers, salads and vegetables. All food was fresh and prepared with care. The terrace in which we ate was comfortable and cozy. The waiter were very friendly and helpful, though a bit chaotic at times.... More

We had pretty good time at Tanaquilla. We arrived without reservation, but we managed to get a great place for two in the beautiful garden (get a reservation if you want to sit outside, we were rather lucky). The waiter came as soon as we took plave and told us they have a beer of the month, of which we... More

Great food served by young friendly waiters. Food was very good. I had goat kebabs very salty and fatty which is to my taste. Sarah had chicken also very good not at all fatty but quite salty. We both had delicious pannacota. I tried the 'real ale' which was 'Special Brew by any other name and undrinkable for me.

We went to eat at Tanaquilla following a recommendation from the staff of our hotel. We were two, one of us (me) a vegan. We ordered a salad that was nice but came without the promised dressing. As for the pizzas, both were mediocre and slightly under baked. The "vegan" pizza was one with mushrooms who seemed suspiciously like cheap... More

I visited Tanaquila with my family recently and went due to the good reviews on Trip Advisor. We had a party of 6 pre booked at 8pm on a Thursday night. We were seated outside on the wooden benches which weren't very comfortable due to not having any cushions. we also had very little space as the table wasn't big... More

Delicious food! Do try the taglione di pesce per 2 persone (antipasto), as this was really moorish! The presentation of the plate itself and all the mix of flavours was absolute heavenly. The pizzas are really good as well.

Came here for evening meal. Shared starters and there were so many different things on the plate, delightfully presented and so delicious. Attentive staff, they obviously take great pride and care in their work. We couldn't finish our mains, so generous were the portions, were offered a doggy bag. Outdoor tables available, pleasant surroundings, lots of locals here, and that's... More

Cooking is good ranging from nice appetizers, fish to pizza (several kinds of pizza, unusual and tasty). A simple pizza is more than just a pizza. Big attention to every single detail. Place too is nice, cozy and comfortable. Cool atmosphere. With a selection of herbal teas, it's great for after-dinner talks with friend. Good service.
