"Sette tavoli dentro e sette tavoli fuori solo d’estate. Di fronte l’antico teatro Duse. L’interno intimo e accogliente da vecchia osteria, curati i dettagli nell’apparecchiatura, sempre musica jazz in sottofondo. Ogni tavolo ha il nome di uno scrittore che ha dedicato parole al buon bere.

Nato come bottiglieria con cucina e dalla passione della coppia di proprietari per i viaggi alla ricerca di vini e prodotti di qualità in giro per l’Italia, ora ha ampliato il menù e le proposte. Due i degustazione, di terra o di mare a 35€. Piatti ispirati in parte alla tradizione locale ma sempre originali come la Carbonara nel Tortellone, ricotta di bufala e pecorino romano all’interno, con crema d’uovo, guanciale croccante e pecorino. Ampia carta dei vini, grande attenzione e ricerca nei vini naturali.

    I highly recommend this restaurant . The food was absolutely superb and the staff were very welcoming and helpful. The tortellini carbonara and the beef cheek were out of this world! Will definitely return next time we are in Bologna.

    From the steak tartar, through the carbonara and the pistachio-crusted sea bass, this was and exquisite meal, served warmly a smile in a small, cozy space. My only regret is that my wife and I didn't both get our own steak tartars!

    Excellent food at this lovely very small intimate restaurant in the heart of Bologna. The food was excellent - I had the ravioli with carbonara crème and it was superb. Nice wine list, excellent service. Highly recommend this spot, would gladly come here again.

    We had a wonderful meal at Sette Tavoli, it's a really special restaurant with only 7 tables, such a nice setting. Service was brilliant and the food was delicious. Would highly recommend.

    The restaurant is on a quiet side street, away from the crowds. It features traditional cuisine that is executed flawlessly - in an ‘honest’ and straightforward way that is not over-the-top. Service was very friendly and fast, and the price/value ratio is perfect. I’d definitely go back there.

    It was a wonderful and relaxing experience. The waitress was very attentive but not intrusive at all. The food was exceptional. Beef cheek is a must try.

    This was an excellent evening. Sette Tavoli is a charming small restaurant with a great ambience. It is welcoming and comfortable. Service was as good as you could want. The wine list was very good indeed with very reasonable prices. The starter was exceptional as was the superb cheese selection. The main if sea bass high standard however the ribs fell short of this, though the accompaniments were very good. Give Sette Tavoli a try, you won't be disappointed.

    My husband and I enjoyed a gorgeous meal here on a Saturday night, served by a lovely gentleman named Mario, who unfortunately doesn’t normally work there – he is helping out while his own wine place is being refitted. He was absolutely wonderful, charming, helpful, surprisingly knowledgeable given he is only temporary, and quick to recommend things when we asked. The food was beyond delicious – we split the ragu, carbonara tortelli, and beef cheek. If you get nothing else here, try the beef cheek, it is beyond words! For dessert we split the hazelnut semifreddo and the chocolate fudge with mascarpone – both beautiful, if very different. Highly recommended and only a short walk from Via del’Indipenzia.

    It is a darling place and our waiter was charming and very good. The pastas were delicious. It is a very small place and worth the walk. Their is a charming book store & bar where they walked us to the restaurant when we were wavering where it was. Have an aperitivi there and go on to your Meal

    Dined last night towards the end of a lovely week in Bologna. So pleased we did, by far the best dinner we have had. A delicious experience, from the tartare, tortellone, beef cheek, and special spaghetti. Great and attentive service, chefs that are proud of what they create. And very good value for money. Bravo!

    Cozy place, not big. The food was really good! Super flavored pasta, good portion - “La rbonara nel Tortellone”. Dessert was awesome also (we had tiramisù and torta tenerina con mascarpone). The waiter was very good and attentive and he spoke three languages (as far as I know) - Italian, Spanish and English.

    Probably our best meal in Bologna and so far in our trip in Italy. Also probably the best price quality ratio I have ever seen. Quality of ingredients is high end , quantities are ample and the set menu is fantastic. Service is impeccable . Highly recommend this place .....and again one of our best meals so far in Italy !!!!!!

    The food quality was good; service was friendly but a bit slow; portion size may have been a bit more generous. My beef cheek didn’t come with potatoes or veg.

    As it only has seven tables inside, the atmosphere is really nice and intimate. Ideal for a romantic meal, which is why we were there.
