I have almost forgotten how positively I was surprised in this coffee bar. The coffee and food was excellent but the atmosphere of this hidden place was even better. I could easily spent whole afternoon here.

Very nice place and vegan :) Friendly and helpful. Cold drinks in great location. Vegan is a bit hard to find in this area so this is a find! So close to the Duomo.

We saw this restaurant while visiting the Duomo and decided to try it, even though we are not vegetarian. There are vegan, vegetarian and meat options and all of their products are locally sourced and environmentally friendly. The food was good and they had a charming little courtyard to sit in. A good choice for lunch.

The restaurant was listed in Happy Cow as a vegetarian restaurant. The restaurant definitely serves some vegetarian options, but the food was not all that interesting. I had the tofu foccacia (because the red lentil soup was only in the winter), but it turned out to be pretty bland. What I like about the place: 1. Organic 2. Eco-friendly 3.... More

We popped in for coffee after a visit to the Duomo and were so impressed returned later for dinner. The menu has a good choice for vegetarians which is unusual, and we enjoyed our meal. It was very quiet the evening we ate there which we thought was a shame as it is a great place, service was good.

Visited this restaurant after struggling to find anywhere else serving soya milk (dairy intolerant) and so glad we did! Menu had options for everyones taste including vegan dishes throughout all 3 courses. All food was amazing along with the service and helpfulnes of the waitress/owner. I cannot express enough how DIVINE the hot chocolate was - everyone must try it!... More

Good service, interesting menu with good veggie choices. Ambience is good and doesn't feel touristy at all. Easy to find but away from the crowds at the same time. Overall the food was good though I was expecting it maybe to be a bit better

We had the meat & cheese tasting platter (large) washed down with local wine and fine local craft beer. Excellent food & drink in a prime location opposite the duomo.

We found this place by mistake, but I am exceptionally happy that I did! The cafe is superbly decorated with some beautiful furniture, and has an 'arty' feel to it without being arrogant. The place is run by a couple (I assume) and the lady greeted us in flawless English to save my blushes (I butcher the Italian language) and... More

We have been to this cozy little place twice for lunch and both times left satisfied. The first time we came here in the summer, we sat in the quiet little patio, which was a perfect escape from the sun and heat. My husband had the horse stew over creamy polenta and I had the bigoli with horse. The meat... More
