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

Went to this place for lunch and ordered the raw zucchini and carrot salad and pasta with bread and sun dried tomato. The meal was cheap and tasted fresh. The place itself is very inspiring and has a great ambiance. Bookings may be needed as we were only lucky to get a spot despite being the first customer for the... More

Thank heavens they took us without a luncheon reservation or we might have missed the ambience, food and service of the best vegetarian/vegan place in Florence. Beautifulyl plated selections, tasty, and unhurried atmosphere make this a must even if you are not of the vegetarian persuasion!

I have been here only for teas and treats. You can have lunches as well. There are more rooms, all tiny but cosy, with a very nice forniture. White is the main colour, all others are delicate tones anyway. There are books and candles, and there are some tables in a sort of inner yard. It is not a turistic... More

We ate here twice while we were in Florence in October. My husband is vegan and I'm mostly vegetarian (pescatarian) and this food was phenomenal. The folks working there were very friendly and we were lucky to get to eat at the bar as they were booked solid for the tables both nights (I recommend getting a reservation ahead of... More

It's like being at a bar in a funky little bookshop - it has a great vibe. You can eat at the counter or in the room across the courtyard. This vegetarian restaurant was so excellent - we have already booked again for our last night in Florence. The meals were unique, tasty and generous as far as the servings... More

Quirky vegetarian resteraunts serving creative food. Try the €12 menu and choose from interesting salad, pasta, and pastry. Lovely food fantastic setting - difficult to find no sign. Looks like a bookshop from the outside. Well worth searching out. Try the vanilla cheesecake - best I've ever eaten!
