The food lacked in flavor and gave us bad indigestion. The beer on tap is not one of the best, the desert was ok.

Liked this vegan restaurant which offers lunch dishes for 9eu!
Pasta dish, as well as risotto were very good.
I don't know how long this restaurant has been opened, but we were a bit disappointed by the very small menu: only 6 dishes to choose from. And not a salad on the menu, which is a bit strange for a vegan restaurant.
But will go back as this is a very nice place.

I actually didn't realise this was a Vegan restaurant! We went in to ask for a table on a busy Friday night, we were accommodated no problem.

I don't eat meat & have never been to a vegetarian or vegan restaurant! My husband was quite happy to give it a go & we weren't disappointed. The food was fantastic, full of flavour & really fresh. We had the kebab & the stuffed courgette, delicious as was the bread. The wine was delicious too. Our waitress asked if we wanted sweet & we decided yes, we ended up having three different types, the strawberry tart, the creme caramel & a chocolate cake! They were so delicious & not a bit of dairy in sight!

When the bill came we did a double take & checked it to make sure everything was there, it was, €47!! We couldn't believe it! Had to leave them a generous tip.

The staff are very helpful and friendly, and the atmosphere is simple and welcoming. I have eaten here a number of times and I have never been disappointed. They know how to make the most of good vegetables and vegan ingredients. Quinoa is always turned into a tasty dish, and cereals and pulses are also abundant. I love their seitan cutlets with shiitake. Anything with mushrooms. Farro salad also very good. I have asked them why they do not put any wild rice (Zizania) on the menu. No real reason, just a rather unknown ingredient in Italy, though available in local macrobiotic shop. Maybe it is still rather expensive. The desserts are not usually as satisfying as their pastas or risottos (excellent).

Travelling from Florence to Como we stopped here for lunch. It was packed but we'd called ahead and reserved a table for 7. Thank goodness we did because it was well worth the trip off the motorway.

The involtini with tempeh were so delicious and one of the teen girls said that the pasta was the best thing she had ever eaten.

Such a treat to find a place filled with locals.

Great value too. 84 euros for 7 dishes, 4 bottled brings, 3 bottles of water and 2 beers.
