We were the only people in the restaurant when we arrived at around 730 one night. We were taken to a table next to a bookshelf with quite a few works of Shakespeare (in Italian of course). Our waiter handed us the menu which was all in Italian and he was happy to translate it for us. There were some vegetarian spins on classic Italian dishes, two veggie burgers, and some salads. I ordered the ceci burger which was essentially a chickpea based veggie burger with a side of roasted potatoes. My wife got a dish which was roasted onions (she thought it was also came with potatoes but apparently it didn't). We were asked what we liked to drink and since I noticed that they had 6 taps and quite a few bottles (several different boxes of Southern Tier [a favorite of mine] were stacked near the bar) I knew I had to get a beer (6 euro for a pint 3.50 for a half). They didn't have a beer list so he asked what I liked and told me he would bring me a couple of samples. I tried two different pale ales and selected one and my wife decided to have the other.
Our food showed up and it was really tasty. I'm not vegetarian but I do occasionally enjoy eating that way as a change of pace. My burger was hearty tasting and my roasted potatoes were very savory. My wife liked the roasted onions she got so much that we tried to figure out what they were glazed with (honey, balsamic, and red wine maybe) so we could try and make it at home. Both of the beers we had were really good and I was really impressed. I wish we could have stayed longer so I could have tried the imperial porter they had on tap.
The restaurant filled up as we were there and got pretty busy after a while. Our waiter appeared a bit overwhelmed but this often happens in European restaurants when they have just one server for the whole establishment. The only other person there was the chef and she did some serving too. My only complaint was that right after getting our food the chef started rearranging some tables right next to us for a very large party that would show up later. I don't know if they had just called and they wanted to get it done but not the best timing with the arrival of our food. The dining room is unique looking with different works of art many of which are from the same artist. I would definitely recommend this place if you want some vegetarian food (or just delicious food!) or are looking for craft beer.
