Nice location for this cozy bistro in the quiet Piazza Duomo next to Verona Cathedral. Pleasant atmosphere with vintage style furniture and jazz music in the background. The place is run by a very friendly couple, she is vegan and speaks a very good english. This place also serves meat dishes so you can't rate it 5 cows but the vegan food was really excellent and I give it 5!
It's the perfect place if you have non vegan/vegetarian friends you want to have lunch/dinner with.

Pros: Excellent vegan food, Friendly english speaking staff, Nice atmosphere

Made my morning

4 Posted on 09 / 16 / 2014

We started with juice which knocked us out - absolutely fresh, slowly squeezed. For dinner we had pasta with mushroom and sweet potato noodle which turned out to be typical Korean noodle. This noodle was rather quite salty, but the pasta was very nice and creamy and we loved it. The price for those main was also quite affordable, so you can order several dishes to try out at same time :)
We loved the desert with cocoa and pears. Not sure if it was sugar-free, but it tasted awesome.

We came back next morning with a small hope that it might be open - and it was! The location was nice as well, it is very close to centre.
For brunch we had some juice again, and then a huge salad bowl with a vegan cake. Thanks for making my day in the morning, we are sure to come back when we visit Verona for a next time!
I was unable to rate 5 cows here, but I give 5! Absolutely the best in Verona.

Pros: Wonderful food, Good recycling sprit, Good location

I have visited Retrobar twice, both times i ordered polenta with tofu and milkshake with almond milk. It was really good and the staff is very friendly. The price is moderate. Would come here again.

If you have a are in the right place

In a traditional "meat city", find a bistro with an international approach to food while remaining "very Italian" is simply a gem!
They deserve 5 stars as they try to combine some traditional meat base dishes with vegan meals, veggie, gluten free. Meaning that if your partners/friends are not vegan (or viceversa) can find something that fits your needs without starving anymore.
But don't expect to eat in a restaurant. They aren't. They serve food, local dishes, drinks, local wines, live beers, raw juices, homemade vegan cakes, almond cappuccino, soya frappuccino, sorbet...just all day long. Pls aware that they are not open late at night, better to call.

A suggestion: Roman bruschetta are one of the best we've ever eaten.

Pros: variety, open all day, city centre
Cons: better to call for dinner

A different place

A vintage style bistrot and bar, serving local food all day long according to the bar's policy "local and fresh". 60% vegetarian food (main course) and vegan options. Craft beers, local wine, blooming tea and almond cappuccino! Salad and raw juices are fab! Bookcrossing zone and slate placemats where to draw while waiting food/drink. Meatless thursday with vegetable burgers and fries from 7 to 11 pm.

Pros: fresh food, value for money, friendly staff
Cons: vegan options
