First Review by Nirvana

Quite Fancy - Edit

I went there for dinner, it definitely has a different vibe from what I saw in the lunch reviews. They seem to mostly take reservations (but it was a Wednesday when I went so they were slower and got a table ready for me). They do a tasting menu for 48 euro. I split it with my sister and it was a good portion for two but it wasn't that large of a meal. I just felt very unprepared and completely under dressed for this restaurant.

The best vegan meal you will have - Edit

Flora is a beautifully decorated vegan and gluten free restaurant and is a work of pure genius. The menu was lovingly constructed and had four or five fantastically creative options per course, even including several raw vegan options.

Starter for me was finely diced courgette in a light avocado tartare, with mint and lemon emulsion on the side. The presentation was perfect and the combination of flavours was incredibly fresh and moreish. My husband's starter was wild mushroom orecchiette in a garlic and parsley sauce, which was full of rich, creamy flavour. Both starters were a generous serving.

The main course for me was crunchy tofu balls with apple and ginger cream, and diced peaches in a balsamic glaze on the side. My husband Rob, a relatively hard-to-impress non-vegan, was delighted with his trio of burgers (quinoa, spinach and beetroot), which were served with a rosemary jacket potato, turmeric ‘mayo’ and caramelised onions.

Dessert was a thing of pure joy!

The raw melon cheesecake had a subtle, fresh melon flavour and a decadent creamy texture topped with a melon jam. The ti-raw-misu was so realistic I am still baffled over how it could have been raw. The ‘sponge’ in the bottom was soaked with rich coffee and topped with a creamy, light, cocoa cream marscapone with vanilla, dates and a dusting of cacao. I've re-created recipes of both on my blog because they were so fantastic!

It was by far the best vegan or vegetarian meal we have ever had – 10/10.

Pros: Inventive menu, Perfect presentation, Out-of-this-world food

expensive fancy dinner - Edit

I read the reviews thinking it was a buffet. At dinner it is table service with expensive tasting menus. Mushroom soup was great! Cheese plate was gross! I'm sad I spent so much money on it. Very nice staff!

Food is good but expensive - Edit

Went here for lunch, and while food is good enough and with an nice selection, I’m not particularly impressed. The lunch is on a by-weighing system and the plate itself already weights a fair bit (they use nice sturdy porcelain plates) so the meal does end up being pretty expensive even though it’s a “buffet” system. I think I’ve had better vegan Italian selections and much more affordable prices.

Pros: good location, nice vegan selection

Cons: pretty expensive , definitely not for people travelling on a budget

Absolutely amazing food - Edit

We went to flora for lunch and had the buffet - it was absolutely amazing! The food tasted really fresh and exciting. My wife and I agreed that this was the best food we ever had.

On this alone, we really wished that we had a longer stay in verona (we were just passing through) - if you are in Verona, you must go there!

Pros: Delicious food

OMG AMAZING - Edit

Actually the best vegan food I've ever eaten in my entire life. I'm from Melbourne Australia where the vegan food is fantastic but Flora tops everything I've ever had. It was the highlight of Verona for me. I went three times in one and a half days. My mum is also gluten intolerant so it was good for her to be able to order anything off the menu and other allergens are clearly noted. Lunch was a buffet style where you pay by weight so of course I took a bit of everything! So delicious! Surprising yet familiar flavours. For dinner the first night we tried the seven course degustation where you get to try a bit of everything and omg was it incredibly delicious. Really interesting food and flavours with a mix of raw and cooked. Dessert was omg incredible. Can't even describe how good it was. Definitely worth a trip to verona just to try this restaurant!!! And the owner is the most lovely person! Staff are wonderful too. Everyone is so warm and kind and you feel really at home.

Pros: Interesting food, lots of options

Cons: stomach not big enough to fit in all the delicious

Quality food, but not for everyone - Edit

I had a mixed experience in that restaurant. They serve good quality vegan food, some of the dishes are delicious. On the other hand, some taste a little odd.
The main difficulty was communication: The waiter tried very hard, but his English was poor, and couldn't explain the dishes to us, and even got our orders wrong, so we got something other than what we ordered. But it was quality food after all.
Try their 4-in-1 Apple dessert.

Pros: High quality food

Cons: Hard to communicate with waiter without Italian

the best vegan restaurant - Edit

I had dinner here a couple of months ago. As I have just joined the happy cow , so memorable was this dining experience that I could not let it slip away with all the other places I have visited prior to finding this site. I am in the catering industry so really love my food. Some may say it is pricey but it should be rembered that you are paying for top quality ingredients and you can almost taste the love. I cannot wait for my next trip to Verona as this will be my first stop.

Pros: organic , locally sourced ingredients and a lot of

Cons: absolutely none

Very good - Edit

I love this restaurant, the place and the food. As a buffet you can try everything you want and for me it was not so expensive, most of the vegan (or with vegan options) restaurants in Italy are more expensive than this one. Also the desserts are really good, I spent 20euros, but I ate much food, the dessert and the extract of the day as beverage. Really good, I recomend it.

Pros: Really good food, Beautiful place, Right near the Arena (the centre of Verona)
