Both are historical dramas, albeit from different eras. The reasons are different, but the female main characters both live disguised as men. The Tempest is a sort of fantasy story loosely based on real events while Onna Nobunaga is an alternate take on history and a re-writing of a real person. There's romance in both, but The Tempest is more character-driven. Onna Nobunaga is a bit more realistic in some aspects and there are lots of fighting scenes. Onna Nobunaga is shorter because it's a two episodes special.

Both are about Italian restaurants, and there are lots of cooking scenes that make you hungry. The main plots are different (Dinner is about saving the restaurant, while Bambino! is more like a coming-of-age drama about character growth), but they have the same simple, heartwarming atmosphere that makes you smile.
