Tamburini was recommended to me by a local while I was looking for some restaurants to eat. Probably the best tortellini I have ever had. In addition, they have a brilliant collection of wine too to club along with the dishes

I love this place - it feels so very locals only. It's very easy to pick what you want from the line including wine! The food is simple and tastes great. This is a must do in Bologna.
