Being a vegetarian/vegan family is not easy in Italy, a country where most of the dishes have dairy in them! But Il Sedano Allegro was exactly what we were looking for! We ate there two nights in a row. The outdoor patio is delightful! Service was slow, but we were on vacation and the waitresses were very nice.the zucchini pasta... More

I called to check how full they were and they asked me if I wanted to book a table since they claimed Saturdays are a bit busier. We got there 20 mins later and only 3 tables were occupied between the indoor and outdoor seating. We picked indoor since we wanted the air con, but this was a rip off... More

The staff are lovely, you can sit outside or in, it is in a very un touristy part of Florence and lots of locals.our food was delicious, they have an English menu... More

Very nice, little restaurant in front of the sinagogue. Moderate and reasonable price - and not overcrouded.

Oh yes! If you are into Vegan/Vegetarian food this is the place to go, or at least one of the places to go in Florence. Food is really good, we tried several types of Seitan over several occasions and other dishes and we were always happy with the meal, prices are reasonable and service very nice. Totally reccomended!

It takes a lot to disappoint someone who is of the cheese omelette generation of vegetarian. A quirky name but no imagination in the menu to back it up. Every way to put a vegetable in a gratin dish and nuke it. There probably was an explanation for the use of 'parmesan' to describe the cheese in the ubiquitous sauce... More

We stopped in for lunch after visiting a nearby attraction in Florence. It has a couple of rooms to be seated in and we were seated among many other people. It is usually a good sign when a lot of folks are in a restaurant. Maybe, we had a unique experience, but the food was really just average and the... More

We happened upon the Sedano Allegro...or Happy Celery...by chance. Next time the visit will be planned! We enjoyed outstanding fried zucchini flowers dressed with a sauce that was unique to the restaurant. The fresh pasta dishes were delicious and the seitan curry was equally good. We were delighted to have found this restaurant and will take friends there soon.

This place serves what is probably the best seitan I’ve ever had! I define sedano allegro as my fav vegetarian Italian restaurant. The atmosphere is also very romantic. When I'm in Florence, I eat here almost every time. The staff is also very friendly and they take their time with you.
