“Excellent vegetarian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

All the dishes are vegetarian- but don't worry! All the dishes are very creative, taste great, and filling. The setting is also great for dates.

“Wonderful, intimate restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Make a reservation, books up quick on the weekend. Delicious vegeterian and vegan Italian food presented beautifully. Restaurant set in a modern bookstore with garden in the back. Get the Piatto unico, mixed plate where you choose a salad, pasta and Calzone-like dish.

“Innovative Italian Vegetarian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

Well a vegetarian restaurant in in Italy is a rarity in itself. But then so is an innovative vegie restaurant anywhere. Fresh ingredients and wonderfully put together. The atmosphere is calm, modern and fashionable with a real artists touch. The price is very reasonable as well, but that really was not it's selling point. The thing is i am a real carnivore of the nose to tail eating strain, but i would happily eat here as i appeciate well cooked food.

“Excellent - be sure to book!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

A hidden gem - absolutely marvellous. Definitely worth booking so you don't miss it. Not easy to find but worth the search. Can't recommend it highly enough for excellent Italian vegetarian food. No English menu but you can order with confidence as it's all veggie or vegan. Great value.

“Natural food, organic atmosphere, amazing experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Wow. I never would have thought something of this magnitude existed in Firenze. But it does, and I am so grateful my girlfriend brought me here for lunch! We came around 1ish on a Monday afternoon and fortunately for us, it wasn't packed.

The first half of Libreria resembles a bar, to grab un cafe or due cafe. Going through the door, takes you outside to an area with chairs to lounge, books to read and a decor color scheme that screams organic, all natural and serene. Mi piace, molto. And then you enter the back of the place, where there are tables set up in the middle of a room engulfed in books. Books and books and books. Oh how I love to read. Oh how I love vegetarian food. Oh how I love Brac.

I had a late breakfast, so I opted for the avocado carpaccio and my gf ordered the grape risotto. Mine was basically an avocado sliced thin with a drizzle of olive oil and some type of dipping sauce, that was pretty good and a side salad. It was perfect for my stomach. My gf's risotto was excellent. Next time I come though, I will order the combo plate, where you can choose three items.

I really can't wait to come back to visit and eat here again.

mangiare felice.
