Review: You may like this restaurant only if you are occasionally a vegetarian and usually eat meat and fish. Here they serve food that might be appreciated only by someone who is new to a vegetarian diet. Not worth it! This restaurant has changed its location three times in less than ten years, but nothing has changed on their menu. I have sometimes eaten at this restaurant when it was one of the two vegetarian restaurants in Florence. Now there are others much better than this and I don't go there anymore. The current location is better than the previous ones, and the service is nice enough, but the food is nothing special. Almost everything seems to be prepared beforehand and warmed up just before being served. Prices are not low. There's no fantasy in any dish that they serve. Sometimes salads are with fish. I travel often and eat at many vegetarian/vegan restaurants all over the world. To me it's very clear that in this restaurant they don't really have a vegetarian cuisine culture. The last time I ate there was for Valentine's Day as they had heavily advertised a special dinner and dessert. It was even worst than at other times. Particularly the special cake presented like it was the grand finale of the Valantine's dinner! It was clearly a frozen cake (not well warmed!!), filled with something like a strawberry marmelade (really awfull!). There's something on the menu that they show as one of their specialities, called "bombolotti", but it's nothing more than a kind of pasta that you can find at the supermarket! So I really can't reccomand this place to anybody... I'd like to say to the owner that being and eating vegetarian is much more than what they propose! Taking away turkey and bacon from a club sandwich... at the end you will only eat tomatoes and bread!
