High End Veg Food - Edit

Only a block away from the main train station, this place appears to seeks to be higher end fine dining veg food. Not suit-and-tie fine dining, but a step above your typical veg restaurant.

When I was eating my meal, I thought the chef was striving for a unique but subtle blend of flavors. In my case it was a pesto sauce with carrots and rosemary, a very unusual choice to mix, but they blended superbly.

But like many high end restaurants, portions are small. This is the sort of restaurant where you will need to order two things from the menu, maybe a course with a salad or a first course ("primo") and a second course ("secondo").

It was a bit pricey for what I normally do, but it was worth me going there once to experience it. If you're looking for a unique treat or are the type who prefers the higher end going towards gourmet then this will be a good treat for you.

Pros: Tasty, I'd even say gourmet, Good sevice, Easy access from the train station

Cons: Pricey

very good - Edit

Vegetarian restaurant with a macrobiotic influence, almost vegan (rarely serves eggs or goat cheese) and with amazing desserts. Love it! If you reserve (by telephone or email) they can deliver the lunch to you (at home or at work within Parma city). Open at lunch from Monday to Friday and at dinner on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night.

Compose your own vegan delight - Edit

Apriti Sesamo is a natural bio restaurant serving mostly vegan lunches and desserts, with many gluten free options.

There's a standard lunch menu price which allows you to choose three of the many items on the menu (three choices of carbs, three different proteins, four different salads).
We ate all vegan and almost gluten free and every item was very tasty, with a particular seasoning and texture. Menu changes daily so dish compositions are infinite!
All the desserts were also vegan and to die for: Italian decadence with bio and vegan ingredients :-)

Little vegan haven in the land of ham and cheese.

Simply excellent! - Edit

I have been lunching at Apriti Sesamo every day for 10 years, now that should tell you something :). Menu is changed every single day and lunch is cheap (full meal 12 to 18 euro). All ingredients are totally organic, kitchen and dining room so clean you could eat off the floor. And it's 90% vegan. Through the years, chef Mimmo has become really creative and a meal there, besides being really tasty, is nutritionally balanced (that's how I've survived so long!). You'll be amazed at the deserts; totally lacto-uovo-sugar FREE and so tasty. Most patrons are NOT vegetarians but lunch there daily for taste, quality and value so the place is frequently full, but Antonella who manges it with a mixture of "rigore & simpatia" will always find you a table. The regulars are all friends and we share tables and chat so if you can't find a table we'll host you too ! To conclude: I hereby decalre that I am biased but I do travel the world and always search for veggie restaurants. I have rarely found one comparable in quality to Apriti Sesamo.

Pros: high quality ingrediants, very tasty, affordable

It IS vegetarian! - Edit

The restaurant is 100% vegetarian by lunch, and all vegan by dinner. The owner is a macrobiotic woman who has been vegan for 17 years! The menu is fixed with entries, two main dishes, seconds and dessert. The food is great but quite expensive, expect to spend something like 30-35 euros for a dinner...

Pros: good food!, vegan-friendly, quite place

Cons: expensive
