I spent the day in Verona and though Italy prides itself on its food, I have found that the food is never good and over-priced due to tourism. I have tried back streets to find "authentic" restaurants and never seem to be able to... when I saw RETRObar I was attracted to the vegan offerings on the menu, but was... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this place after visiting the Duomo, which is across the road. Naturally hesitant about eating in places close to tourist sites, I wasn't expecting much when we paused to look at the 'menu' notices pinned up outside. But am soooooo glad we did. Whilst Italian food is one of my favourites I find many... More

Found this lovely place one day for lunch. Was getting a bit fed up of only having pizza & pasta options so we saw this had gluten free & veggie options instead! Our waitress was friendly and had excellent English with an English menu too. I had a 'digestive drink' of orange, carrot & ginger and my boyfriend had a... More

Wanted a meal before the opera so booked a table through Facebook. The owner was very friendly and the selection of vegetarian dishes fantastic compared to everywhere else we had been in Italy. I can recommend the asparagus risotto followed by the tiramisu together with Prosecco - delicious. It is the sort of place I would use regularly if it... More

Found this little place while walking around Verona, amazing fresh salads and meat/cheese board. We also enjoyed a cheeky bottle of local wine before heading to do more sightseeing. Very relaxing atmosphere!

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
