Definitely not to be missed while in Florence

We dined at Brac this past February, which is a unique and creative vegetarian restaurant set within in a library in Florence.

Read reviews and booked ahead- which was good as Brac has few tables and was full when we went. Reviews state it is best veggie restaurant in Florence- must say I disagree- it is possibly the best veggie restaurant in Europe! Also incredibly good value - the meals were large- prices small. The menu was a little tricky [wine one... More

As a vegetarian travelling through Italy, I was on the verge of bludgeoning the next person who said "spaghetti in tomato sauce" to me. Brac came as a very welcome surprise! This gem of a restaurant has absolutely amazing veggie food for very reasonable prices. The ambience and decor are very cosy and comfortable and makes you feel at home... More

It was not the right time for the more interesting dishes, and the vegan options are limited, so we had an avocado dish - sliced thin with an interesting sauce. Quite tasty, and the bread was also tasty. We shared a dessert, which was good. The shop was certainly interesting and different - like sitting in a small library. (But... More

I am not a vegetarian, but the meal I ate at Brac was by far one of the best in Florence. The food they serve is a creative fusion of the freshest ingredients, and everything we tried was simply delicious! The menus and setting alone are worth the visit! Each menu is an altered book experience unique in and of... More

If you like a little alternative but not too much, and if you are a vegetarian food lover than it's worth the walk to this part of Florence. Huge meals for a reasonable price (around €10,-). They have a lovely small garden space for the summer, but also in winter a very cosy place to be due to all the... More

Everything was delicious, fresh, organic, cooked in front of you. Many italian specialties on the vegetarian side. A must in Florence.

Finally booked two days ahead to get into Brac, little bookshop-cum-vegetarian restaurant. Delicious platters with three interesting fusion experiments. Will definitely go back to sample other things on the menu.

I made a reservation by email , and our table was ready upon arrival...We ordered 2 appetizers and one of their stuffed Balkan bread entrees as an appetizer, plus 5 entrees, and two bottles of water. Everything was tasty. Service on the entrees was somewhat on the slow side, but that is a minor bit. We were not happy with... More

Have had both lunch and dinner at this excellent, unusual restaurant. A bright space reached through a courtyard with the tables surrounded by books. Very tasty and well priced Tuscan food, all vegetarian. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Reservation for dinner pretty much essential
