super tasty organic food

they said to us: "we are like mcdonalds, just with fresh an healthy food". They are totally right. they have selfservice there. u order at the desk and they call your name when its ready. food was super great with fresh veggies. interior and the outdoor seating area are cozy. worth to go there. all thumbs up.

Delicious grain and veggie bowls

Delicious salads and grain bowls. Quiet open location in a closed alley. Try it, with a glass of wine!

Good but expensive

We liked the food which was served. but it is quite expensive for the size you get. We ate a vegan salad and a vegan dish but were both still hungry afterwards.

Pros: Fast, Seats outside

Cons: Expensive, Small portions

Expensive, greasy and wasteful

The food is fine, just some veggies and a vegan burger (without bun). However, it was very little for the price you pay for it and very greasy as well. The restaurant uses single use plastic cutlery and cups, even if you eat there. This is just super wasteful for no reason. Definitely don't recommend this place, there are way better vegan options in Trieste!

Few vegan whole food options

We tried the vegan plate (with a burger patty and nice assortment of colourful veggies), the vegan salad (with a lot of cabbage and a nice dressing) and potatoes; and skipped the burger. All very tasty.

They have a great selection of local beers and lemonades.

Not good

We had 2 salads. These were quite pricey and certainly nothing special. Added to this is the disposable tableware which is really unnecessary if you eat there on the spot. I also ate here once last year and hoped it was better this time. Unfortunately it wasn't, there really are better vegan options in Trieste.

Pros: Vers

Cons: Te duur

A good option

Food was okay. I had a burger sandwich and my friend a vegan plate. They were both good but nothing special.
We had white spritz served in disposable cups which is a bit annoying to me, also because I saw that every table made a lot of trash and it is very sad.

Pros: Vegan options

Cons: Disposable cups and plates

Buona varietà di piatti vegani

Io ho preso il Piatto Vegano, diciamo un piattone ENORME e gustosissimo composto da una base di verdure alla piastra e insalata riccia; in cima spadroneggia il burger vegano di loro produzione e il tutto viene insaporito con un mix di spezie spaziale è una salsa di stagione.
L’ho trovato davvero squisito!
Ho preso, a parte, anche le tre salsine (barbabietola, pomodoro e zucchine) ed erano molto appetitose.
Ottimo i piatti in carta etc, spero che sistemeranno anche i bicchieri

Pros: Varie opzioni vegane

Good burger

I ate a GIANT vegan burger full of delicious vegetables, together with roasted potatoes. I also ate a SUPER CREAMY chocolate tart (it is available also with jam). Genuino offers also some vegan plates, but they are pretty similar to the burger. The burger is not the best I’ve ever eaten, but it’s good and full of healthy vegetables; no fake cheese made who-know-how or other weird toppings (the purpose of their cuisine is being balanced and healthy). Excellent for a good and fast dinner. The tart was AWESOME.

Pros: Good place for both vegan and omnivores, The chocolate tart, Fresh and seasonal ingredients

Cons: The plates are very similar to the burger , A bit expensive

Good food, bad circumstances

For this price I expect a restaurant or a bistro to have bathroom, proper cutlery and plates. So much waste with these single use cutlery and plates! And it is really a fast food place, only with somewhat more local and healthy ingredients. They are all the time shouting the names of ppl, so it is not a nice experience to eat there.We ate vegan hamburger and a piatto vegano.

Pros: clearly marked vegan options

Cons: single use cutlery and plates, everyone is in a hurry and nervous, no bathroom

There are a quiet few vegan options on the menu, but they seem to be all very similar. We had the vegan burger and the piatti vegano and both of them tasted mostly like olives. The food is freshly prepared and healthy, but too expensive in my opinion. Also the cups and cutlery are single use!

Pros: Clearly labeled vegan options, Fresh and healthy

Cons: Expensive, Vegan options are all very similar, Plastic cutlery

we had vegan burger and salad; burger was really really nice, quite big and cost about 10 euros, salad did not contain any meat substitute, it was vegetables only but the dip was tasty and there was a lot of spices and we really enjoyed it, i’m sure we will visit again

Pros: really good food, nice location , friendly waiter

Cons: no english menu

Great selection of vegan options for lunch

Super vegan-friendly place, with one vegan option for each of the types of food they serve. The concept is rather focused on quick but healthy meals. Vegan dishes include a vegan burger, vegan salad with vegan patty, vegan tris of rice with veggies (delicious), vegan crostata (three flavours: peach, strawberry or hazelnut cream) and possibly a few more. All is clearly labelled, staff is very kind and the location is central and very nice, especially outdoor. Would definitely recommend for lunch.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Healthy food, Kind staff and central location

Buono e decisamente vegan friendly!

Vi ho mangiato di recente ed ho avuto un'impressione positiva: oltre alla vasta offerta di piatti veg (riso condito, insalata vegana, hamburger vegano, passata di verdure ecc) mi ha colpito la qualità del cibo. Ingredienti semplici e di stagione elaborati in chiave decisamente gustosa!

Pros: Varie opzioni veg, Stagionalità

Cons: Un po' costoso

Teuer und viel Verpackungsmüll

Das Essen an sich war ganz gut, auch wenn die Auswahl nicht sehr groß ist.

Der Preis für die Portionen ist jedoch sehr hoch. Zudem wird das Essen mit Einwegbesteck in Pappschachteln serviert.

Cons: Teuer, Viel Verpackungsmüll

Not many vegan options

There wasn’t too many vegan options to choose from so we got a burger and the millet. They were both super good. We were so full we had to take away the rest. Cute atmosphere and friendly people.
