During both of my visits to this bistro, I found the food great and the welcome... lacking. Granted I had not made a reservation on either occasion, there was something a little off-putting about the way the owners (I think it was the owners) conducted themselves and interacted with their clients... read more

I have been there several times, and the quality is a constant. Specially if you are vegetarian and do not search traditional dishes from Bologna, this is a great place. The menu changes quite often and the ingredients, combination and plating are above average. One of the best dessert I have ever had was here (millefoglie with ricotta & frutti... More

We had a very good meal, delicious steak and the risotto was also lovely. Nice wines and everything is organic.

This place is a vegan/vegetarian restaurant with equal amounts of vegan options. You can choose either 2 dishes for 6 Euro or 3 dishes for 10 Euro. The food was very tasty however we found the serving sizes were too small and we were still hungry afterwards. The restaurant was really busy from the moment the doors open, so either... More

Don't go here if you're looking for alfresco dining in a picturesque area. This restaurant is all about the food and service. We chose to eat here because it was much more vegetarian friendly than anywhere else we had tried in Bologna. It was also a bit different to other places we had tried. Near the train station in a...

Somewhat "nouvelle" Italian cuisine, this little very modern restaurant is very busy. The food was OK, but since i did not have a reservation , I went at opening time and was asked to eat and go. Needless to say the service was prompt the amount of wine wine the glass was small. It was a Wednesday and people with... More

I loved the food! Very popular among local people. Good service and very helpful and friendly staff. A must if you are vegan or if you wish to eat healthier food. Zenzero is also serving non-vegan food.

You're unlikely to stumble across this small vegetarian bistro unless you venture northwest and away from the historic quarter, but if you do (and you can get a seat) it's an excellent lunchtime break from the meat-heavy traditional restaurants. Decor is plain and the service is brisk, but the food is at the indulgent end of the veggie spectrum. Prices... More
