For business reasons I come very often to Bologna, and I normally try to go to different restaurants to build up my own "Top List". This small, warm and nicely decorated restaurant has indeed seven tables, the meaning of its Italian name. I had the privilege to meet the owners (a very nice couple), who take incredible care of every... More

Small portion of pasta as a primo dish. Arrived lukewarm so I sent it back. No meaningful apology, just the full bill. Will not return. Nice ambiance but let down by poor cooking and missed opportunity to put it right.

SetteTavoli, Proprietario at Sette Tavoli, responded to this review

We're really sorry in reading your bad review, mostly because we apologize more and more times about your pasta that (according to you) arrived a bit warm. Unfortunately you didn't want to hear any apologies and didn't change your mind despite our kindness, so we came to the conclusion that your only goal was about not paying the full bill... More

We visited last weekend. Excellent service, the food was great and the wine really good. This is a small place so I suggest you to book before visiting. We really enjoyed our evening there!

We really enjoyed our evening at Sette Tavoli. The chef is the only staff member who speaks English, so he came out and gave us wonderful descriptions of everything on the menu and answered all our questions. The food was really good and the ambience was wonderful, with jazz playing at a reasonable level in the background. We'd recommend this... More

I was not aware of this beautiful restaurante until Yesterday night. We will come again in the next future, for sure, especially because we learn about their monthly menù rotation, each permutation dedicated to a different italian region through their own tipical special food. This month we ate Sardinia pasta, entree and meat. I found and tried for the first... More

There was room inside and and it was nice and cool in there. I was very comfortable in this restaurant. The inside is very quaint and cosy and... More

We chose the €10 lunch menu which included a Primi, either Verdure or Dolce (we chose Dolce), bottle of water and coffee. July's speciality region is Puglia. The food was fresh, plentiful and delicious. Menu in Italian only but the waiter spoke English went through it with us in English when asked. Service was attentive and pleasant. Slightly higher prices... More

I sat inside and it's very mellow. Groovy music and nice decor. The menu is simple but it works well. I will easily come back for the relaxed atmosphere but the food was excellent and service good.
