We were referred to this restaurant after telling a store owner that we were vegetarians. We are so grateful for the referral! The restaurant is gorgeous - it pairs as a contemporary art library and looks magical. The food was brilliant - love that there were options for both my partner (flexitarian - mostly veg) and I (raw vegan). We arrived quite late and the owners so kindly let us stay after closing. The owners also gave us terrific travel recommendations - they're the reason why we traveled to the gorgeous Val d'Orcia region. HIghly recommend this restau!!!!

Just off the main square, this little place on a side street was a true gem. Far from the madding tourist crowds, we settled down for what was one of the best meals we had in Firenze. We licked our platters clean!
We found this on Trip Advisor! Thank you for the recommendation.

Great vegetarian cuisine, inventive dishes prepared and served with care, charming and quiet location. We ate there three times during a four-day stay.

We were wrapping up our time in Italy and had seen the reviews for Brac. We tried to make a reservation the same day and were out of luck so we made one for the following night. We were of course the early American diners at 7pm, but we were catching a flight out at 6 am, so thought it best. My husband (a diehard carnivore) and I (a vegetarian) both thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The atmosphere was wonderful - loved the bookstore in the front and the unique hangings in the courtyard - it felt like we had stepped into a different space and time. The service was great, though our waitress said she didn't speak English we were able to speak with her in English and work our way through the Italian menu. And last but not least the food fantastic. I loved knowing that I could eat anything on the menu. I differed to our waitress who recommended the platter where you get to try 3 different items on the menu and each was so tasty and fresh. My husband had a pasta dish and feel in love with it. We were both quite full by the time we left.
Thanks for such a great end to a fabulous time in Italy. I would encourage meat eaters and vegetarians alike to check this tiny gem out!

This was the best restaurant in our two week trip. The caffe is located in the back of a bookstore in a modern designed, brightly lit space. The menu was in Italian and there were mostly locals eating here. We had amazing wine and food--vegan and vegetarian. The pasta with curry and basil was incredible as was the caponata and the foglia. The waitress was patient and nice. We also met the chef who enthusiastically shared some tips with us. This is a place to savor and not try to rush through your meal.
