This place is absolutely incredible. So many choices for vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free and even carnivores! We came here 3 times in 2 days, the food is just so delicious and the attention to detail is immaculate. The flavours are so well crafted and arranged. Add to that excellent coffee and a great selection of local craft beers... More

We had a yum lunch here. Had the vegan burger & the cheese/ courgette/ polenta dish. Great for a change from pizza & pasta. Recommend as a lunch destination.

I just had a glass of wine here so I do not have an opinion on their food. The place has very interesting looks both the facade and also the nice retro style interior. A striking combination. My only but would be the attitude of the bartender (maybe the owner). He was probably just having a bad day, but he... More

What a disappointment! After reading the other reviews here we expected something so much better... Retro bar is a brilliant example of how to position your faults as advantages. The opening page of the menu is all about their "special spirit, environmental awareness, no frills" and lots of other bla bla - all used as excuses for why they used... More

I am glad you found the menu interesting, we try to bring new vegetarian and vegan concepts to the table while honoring our Italian heritage. The food was cooked to order and there are express items listed on the menu if you are unhappy to wait. The only frozen item on the menu is noted – pizza dough Perhaps you... More

Walked in at around 11.45am very hungry and in need of a bathroom. Both problems solved at the Retro. We ordered the Spaghetti with Duck, vegetarian sandwich and a small platter (cheese salami and ham). The drinks and food were all served quickly and the food was great. Service was excellent. Recommended by the family.

Without a Reservation, we just walked in. They were full and the both employes very busy, but after a drink at the bar we suddenly found two plates with the finest vegan food in front of us. They just served us everything, it was delicious, perfect! Thank you very much for this great experience!

Whilst on the touristic track happened to bump into this small locale of attractive decor and promising menu. Went for mixed fruit & vegies drink served in chemist's lab utensiles and minced meat rise and porridge topped with parmeggiano and sweet pumpkin. Amazing dishes both of them. Was so impressed that I also went for the vegan cake and pear/chocolate... More

My husband and I randomly stumbled upon Retro Bar after taking photos of the Duomo. It had a few chalk boards outside advertising vegetarian and vegan food that caught my eye (I am a vegetarian and really struggle finding interesting vegetarian food In Italy). The restaurant is really quirky with antique tables and chairs. There is no main light, so... More
