Fresh, healthy food, self-service

The restaurant has healthy vegetarian food that is delicious. The way it worked was a little confusing, because it is self-service (you order at the register and then pick up your meal at the counter), but it worked well for us. It was nice break from heavy pasta and pizza dishes.

Simple and genuine veggie food, kind service (but you got to go to get your food at kitchen stand). Cute garden open also in winter. No reservations accepted.

If I end up eating rice with some veggies (seaweed too), then I can't rave about a restaurant. I eat rice and veggies at home all the time. When I go out to a restaurant, I'd like something more interesting. But the vegan options were limited. My spouse had a lasagna, but that was not whole grain pasta, which is... More

It's basically a self service restaurant, but the quality of the food is outstanding and the portions are generous. Everyday there's a slightly different menu so you can always try something new. I'm usually a meat eater, but I really enjoyed coming to this place.

Found this on tripadvisor and it was reasonably close to where we stayed (at Hotel Rapallo). The food was unusual (to us asians) but very good and tasty. We were lucky to come in and place our orders for an early lunch. The place started filling up rapidly and was alost full by the time we finished our meal. Price... More

Have eaten at here 4 times in 7 years, and I am pleased that the Quality and value remains unchanged. This last time I was traveling solo and the family style seating meant that I could share my meal with others. Bountiful portions of delicious food

We wanted to try out a vegetarian restaurant, found this on Tripadvisor, and decided to try this out. An amazing place, great food, superb concept, and very friendly and helpful people (we could not understand a word of the menu, and they were kind enough to help us out)

This restaurant was recommended by our B&B owner. When I asked for a vegetarian restaurant, he initially said there weren't that many options, but this was the best. As other reviewers have said, this isn't for tourists -- it was filled with locals. It is strange when you enter because you walk through the dining area, down a hall and... More

We stumbled onto this restaurant by seeing a line outside waiting for it to open. We joined the queue and were charmed by the rustic ambiance and great selection of dishes.
