Varietà di piatti vegani, ma troppo costoso per sopportarne la mancanza di servizi igienici, lentezza e carenza assoluta di buone maniere.

Cons: Expensive, Not polite

Tutto buonissimo

Piccola gastronomia in Via Mascarella, è già la terza volta che mangio da loro e mi trovo sempre benissimo. Piatti buoni e bella atmosfera. Unica cosa il posto è un po’ piccolo e il cibo era leggermente freddo.

Cozy Vegan

I love this place. It is very small so you don't have a lot of sits. I like the mixed daily dish that is also quite cheap at 10.50euro. Or you have other options. Usually they have lots of choices. I love also the sweets. Biscuits are amazing but the cake are wonderful. Don't miss even to take away.
Unfortunately works mainly at lunch and in the evening early in the weekend

Pros: Nice service, Sweet are amazing, Good price

Cons: Small, Mainly Daily

Buono ma caro

Tutto quello che abbiamo provato era buono, però rispetto alla porzione il prezzo è caro (pagato 9€ per un pezzo di farinata e delle bietole)

Really nice overall experience!

The staff was really helpful in explaining how the menus worked (translating them into another language). I was there with my family (which is non-vegan) and we all loved the main dishes and the desserts! Highly recommended!

Okay cafeteria style place

Alchemilla is a cafeteria style restaurant located near the university campus. The food is fine, though a bit overpriced. No bathroom for customers.

Cozy, amazing food

This is a small and cozy place in the centre of Bologna with an astonishing selection of food, both savory and sweet. You can either buy single dishes, or combinations (and you can choose to pay whatever you want and pay depending on the weight).

I had lunch there today and had a combo dish with cuscus, seitan and veggies, and oven-baked zucchini. I topped it up with a fabolous fruit cake (with cream!): I simply cannot recommend this place enough!

The persons working there are lovely and helpful, and there was a good vibe when I was there. Will go back for sure!

Favourite place in Bologna

This is an authentic gem. It's a small laboratory in which they prepare different dishes every day, Everything taste amazing and you can feel the love they put in it. The only downside is probably the organisation. The place is small and you'll probably end up waiting because of their way of serving people. They explain the dishes to everyone every single time and obviously that takes time. I would advise them to use some labels or write everything on a blackboard daily.

Pros: various choices, everything taste amazing

Cons: waiting time, small

One of the best vegan meals I've had in Italy

Amazing food, really lovely staff who speak good English. The meals consist of a choice of dishes that you can mix and match, up to three choices. They also do a range of desserts, I had Torta Della Nonna which if you haven't had the chance, I would go for it, it was delicious.

Sono stata da Alchemilla la prima volta per aperitivo, ho preso un piatto unico comprendente lasagne, seitan con verza e patate dolci, e uno sformato di cavolfiore. Tutto davvero buonissimo, genuino e saporito, accompagnato da un bicchiere di vino! Ho acquistato anche una fetta di sacher da asporto e anche quella era molto ben fatta. Torneró sicuramente per assaggiare le altre pietanze 😻

Nice place

Nice little place with homie dishes that you can choose to fill a plate. Portion is not huge, but price is fair. Cakes are very good. Can be a bit busy around 1 pm when the students are around and they don’t have many seats. Only complain is that there is no toilet.

Pros: Fully vegan , Good cakes , Fair price

Cons: No toilet

Best lasagne of my life

Im Italian and I LOVE lasagne - I make them pretty much every week and let me tell you - this is the best lasagne I’ve ever had, even before turning Vegan I would say!! The Bolognese ragù and the freshly made pasta were just unbelievable. Also service was great!

Pros: LASAGNE, Cozy place, Kind staff

Cosy place, good food

I had a quick lunch here, the food was tasty and there were quite a few number of options to choose from (you can choose 1, 2 or 3 different dishes from their buffet). The place has kind of a homemade food vibe. They also had cakes and cookies which I didn’t try but they looked good. The server was so nice!

Ottimi piatti e prezzi onestissimi

Locale piccolino con 3 tavolini all'interno ma un buffet pazzesco! Tanta scelta e tutto quello che abbiamo preso era buonissimo, compresi i dolci.
Carbonara, crocchette con formaggio filante e hummus top! Davvero consigliato, i prezzi poi sono ottimi.

Wide variety of good dishes

There are many options, they always change from day to day. Chocolate and himalayan salt cookies named “biscotti del buonumore” are delicious. I eat here at least once a week, unfortunately sometimes the wait is a little long

Tiny but awesome

The place is really small, but I was lucky to arrive early so I got a place to sit at One of the sweet cardboard tables.
The friendly and welcoming owner spoke perfect english ans explained everything.
I had the Dish of the day which was a combination of their menu. Everything was soooo tasty and I had the best and creamiest Pasta Carbonara in my lifetime. The pumpkin-chocolate pie was really Good as well.
And: It was not expensive at all.
I will definitely go there again.

Pros: Delicious food, Cheap prices, Nice Staff
