Visited on June 28 for the third time. We had 4 different meals and all were excellent. The vegetarian dinners were full of flavor and the price with drinks averaged ca. 16€ a good value. Be sure to call for reservations because they are always full.

Although we are not vegetarians, we greatly enjoy vegetarian food and were delighted that this little restaurant was just round the corner from where we were staying. It is essential to book as there are comparatively few tables and clearly it is extremely popular. The surroundings and atmosphere are original and delightful and fellow diners clearly took advantage of the... More

My daughter and I went to Brac with a vegetarian friend of hers; I was pleasantly surprised at the variety of options available. No "salad bar" this; there were plenty of pasta dishes and breads (and salads of course)--I couldn't begin to finish my 3-course "piatto unico"! And the atmosphere is delightful and romantic (though the romance was wasted on... More

A library and restaurant at the same time... but I didn't took the time to look so much at the books as I was having an amazing foodie experience. I took the piatto unico which includes 3 small meals from the menu. My choices were perfect, you have to try the ginger ravioli and pear carpaccio. :) Service was kind... More

We came here after struggling to find any vegetarian food that wasn't a mushroom pizza in Florence and both were very impressed! We had the piatta unico- where you can choose a salad, main and filled flatbread for €12. The portions are massive, I have a massive appetite and couldn't finish mine! Lovely atmosphere too. It's not the easiest to... More

This is my first choice for a really delucious and varied vegetarian meal. The menu has a limited number of choices but allows you to mix from the three separate lists so you get a taste of each. Portions are abundant and prices are moderate. The food is delicious. If you want a table, book ahead. There are only six... More

We went here 2 times in 2 days it was so good- as soon as we finished our first dinner we went to the counter and made reservations for the next night! The place is very intimate and has an awesome atmosphere, and definitely feels more like a local place. No matter what food you get you won't be disappointed... More

Tiny, quirky restaurant at the back of an arty bookstore in the backstreets, we needed somewhere to feed our mixed vegan/ meat eating group of 5 for a bit of a celebratory meal, following a heavy day queuing in Florence. Brac suited everybody, great freshly prepared food, an innovative ( non meat only) menu which nevertheless had plenty to interest... More

Brac is a little different from other Florence restos - and that's a good thing. First - it's vegetarian - thoughtful vegetarian. English menu is at the back and they have a deal where you can get different components - all served together - a salad, a pasta and a bread - for 12 euros I think. A good deal,... More
