"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.

Scritto da Francesca Gamberini, bolognese, ex ristoratrice, si occupa di cultura gastronomica da quindici anni. Attualmente collabora con agenzie di comunicazione nella produzione di eventi e ha un blog frafoodstories.com dove racconta storie di cucina, cibo e viaggi.

INSIDER tip

Atmosfera intima con una proposta gastronomica originale ispirata alla tradizione locale e italiana regionale, accompagnata da una selezione di vini molto curata. Competenza e passione per le cose buone.

    Wonderful restaurant in a relaxed setting with delicious dishes prepared with local ingredients. Be sure to take your time and enjoy the nice food and friendly service over a reasonably priced bottle of wine!

    A great little restaurant with Italian cuisine and in a quiet street, further from the bustling streets. Great service, even though the English of the waiter was not good, it was easy to understand and explain what we wanted. The Italian accent really added to the atmosphere. The restaurant also has an amazing wine card! Would definitely come back for another Italian dinner.

    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.

    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.
