Good food

Easy to find as its opposite the church in Piazza Duomo. Friendly welcome and English spoken and the menu is in English. It's not all veggie/vegan and there are meat dishes on the menu including horse. However, veggie and vegan choices are very well labeled and there is a good choice. The food was... read more

We were lured in by the nice looking terrace out front but on coming in to look around were accosted aggressively by the female owner who asked my boyfriend 'what were we doing and what did we want', orders were taken slowly and without friendliness and on going into pay, the male owner couldn't remember what we had ordered (a...

Dear customer, We are very sorry about your experience, perhaps something has been lost in translation? We are happily married for decades so it’s a bit strange what you reported, perhaps a misunderstanding due to our Italenglish or our sense of humor? Nevertheless, it would be a pleasure having you as our guest should you like to try one of... More

This is a real find. The choice for vegans is unbelievable and very original. Cooking is amazing. It also caters for non-vegans/vegetarians too so good for group outings too. This is a must for visitors and locals alike in Verona. The location overlooking the cathedral is a nice bonus.

Went to Verona for the day last week whilst on holiday in Lake garda. This bar is right by the stop for the hop on /hop off bus tour of the city. It is a cool, peaceful haven in the city. The gluten free bread is the best I have tasted EVER.It is made by a local bakery and tastes... More

Being in Verona for day only I'm really glad we were able to eat here again. We went to Verona two years ago and decided to make a repeat visit to this amazing restaurant cafe, as we enjoyed it so much the first time round. It's located next to a beautiful church where you can sit outside the front and... More

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
