Respond to Review of RistoVegan at Hotel Sylva
by azur

Review: Went there in July/August 2013, and sadly there is no "Restobio" to be found at this address, and not anywhere else in the vicinity either. So either the address is wrong or the cafe is closed now. Which would be a sad loss, since being vegetarian (let alone vegan) is tricky in Cattolica. 90% of all pasta dishes and salads contain meat or fish. I really got the impression that in Italy, unlike most other European countries, there currently is a trend to add even more meat to dishes and not reduce it. For example, for many bars and cafes, a "Caprese" sandwich suddenly doesn't mean just tomato and mozzarella anymore - of course, ham must be added for that extra nutritional value. At Bologna airport, it was impossible to get a non-meat sandwich either at the Carrefour in the basement or at the snack bar right next to it - there's either ham, meat or tuna on everything. As far as I remember, this used to be different in the past. Also, be advised that "piadina"/"piadine", a local speciality in Emilia Romagna - kind of like a flat sandwich bread with toppings - contains lard ("strutto")in the dough in 90% of the cases. I also found lard to be a common ingredient in prepacked pizza and sandwich snacks at Italian supermarkets. Updated from previous review on Thursday August 01, 2013

Happy to say it does still exist, but has indeed moved - address as per the main entry (Via Cesare Battisti)
