Healthy and filling

I had a club sandwich which was really fresh and healthy, it filled me up well. The taste of my cappuccino was great but it came almost cold. Prices are fair!

Great healthy lunch

We had a nice lunch at Malerba and it was filled with locals even though the seating is very limited. Staff were very kind and friendly, there is a free wifi and their lunch offer had just a few meals that were easy to choose from. I had the raw zucchini pasta that is not usually my first choice but I saw a picture of this dish on their instagram and it looked great. And it tasted awesome with the parsley pesto and fresh cherry tomatoes. I will certainly try to make this one at home. My fiancé had the bowl which was gluten free with wild rice. The fresh juice was also very good. They even had vegan bounty for 1,5 €.

Pros: friendly staff

Cons: salads and bowls served in disposable packaging

Good, but..

So i decided to finally order some food from this place after it seemed quite popular on reviews and so on.

As i tried to avoid going to outlets lately due to avoiding crowded area, i decided to have it delivered. I ordered the soup of the day and the club sandwich for delivery. It arrived roughly 20 min later as i stayed 600m away from the restaurant. I was quite excited for the dish, However, quick to my surprise, i think i had my expectations a bit too high on this one.

The soup portion came half full and close to room temperature. I was expecting at least to have a generous portion for 7 euros. Adding to the dissatisfaction, the temperature of the soup did not help. I would understand if It was a longer distance to travel between the address and the restaurant...but we are talking 600m. Taste wise, i think it was alright. The club sandwich was pretty much like eating a toast with broccoli mash. Nothing too extravagant, but it was ok.

I blame the fact that the food is probably not delivery friendly, at least not for me. As far as price to quality is concerned, i unfortunately do not see it. I hope someone else will have a greater experience with the food, as i do believe it has potential. But for me, unfortunately, not too great.

Pros: Quick delivery, Good variety of dishes

Cons: Bit pricy, Inconsistent portions , Food quality/temperature

Amazing little gem

Malerba is a cute little spot with some very friendly employees who translated the entire menu for me. I tried a roll/wrap with smoked tofu, topinambur, some potatoes and greens as well as a delicious sauce. The combination of flavours was very much on point and I have never eaten anything similar! There are lots of other choices and they are all very affordable. I definitely recommend this gem in Bologna.

Pros: Delicious vegan food, Affordable prices, Friendly staff

Cute vegan Restaurant

Awesome variety, for example pasta, sandwiches, burger, bowls.
I really recommend the club sandwich, it was so good. Had it with the self made burger bun, since the bread wasn't available anymore. Was super yummy! The chocolate cake was also delicious!
The staff was also extremely friendly =)

Pros: Good choices, good prices

Uno dei migliori!

In questo piccolo e accogliente laboratorio non fanno nulla che sia meno che delizioso. I ragazzi che ci lavorano sono gentili ed entusiasti. Do 4 stelle solo perché nel tempo le porzioni si sono ridotte e i prezzi aumentati.

Pros: Tutto squisito

Cons: Costoso e con porzioni non generose

Great for Lunch

Small vegan Restaurant next to the University.
Saturday around 1:30 pm it was really crowded.
The staff was really nice though, the food was good and not expensive at all (Dish and Water was 9,-€ ) , Service was quick.
I had the Dish of the day with Seitan, Tempeh, Broccoli and Rice - but Everything else I saw, like Sandwiches and Bowls looked good as well.
I would definitely come back again for a quick Lunch.

Pros: Organic Food, Friendly Staff, Not expensive

Cons: Small

Cosy and tasty

A small restaurant with an interesting selection of foods: sandwiches, salads, gazpacho etc. Very friendly staff, and yes, the food is tasty.

Prices are totally reasonable. I paid under 20 for two dishes, two drinks, and a dessert.

Pros: Like among friends

Okay food, friendly employees

I decided to go here because it was nearby where I was walking even though I noted some not-great reviews. I got the "Buddha Bowl" for 8 euros which consisted of rice, cabbage, chickpeas, beets, tahini, and some sprouts. It was pretty good but nothing special but was a nice nourishing meal. The two employees working were very friendly and cheerful. Did not like the use of disposable packaging that was used even for customers who were eating in, despite notices that everything was compostable. Overall I would recommend if you're in a pinch and want to get something quickly in this area of the city, otherwise I would say to go to one of the other recommended restaurants in Bologna.

Pros: Friendly employees, Clean restaurant, Healthy options

Cons: Nothing special

Vegan and all homemade

Great vegan place with a more than satisfactory choice. The staff is friendly, acceptably fast processing the orders and very courteous. At peak times there is a bit of a wait and it is rather small, so it is also necessary to consider not necessarily eating on the spot. However, definitely recommended.

Pros: All vegan, All homemade, Great staff

Cons: Crowded at peak times, Small place

Soooo friendly

The guy here was so nice and brightened our day with his smile! It's always great to walk into a place and feel like the people there are happy with their job!

We came for breakfast which is not exactly what they specialize in so I can't say too much about the other options. We had a muffin and a club sandwich as well as a super yummy juice. Everything was excellent but we couldn't come back for a second time.

Be aware that this is a very small place with not a lot of seating available. It's definitely more of a place for a snack or for takeway.

Pros: Really friendly staff, Delicious food

Friendly staff, fresh ingredients, lots of options!

Fully vegan restaurant with casual seating indoors and one outdoor table. Lots of sandwich choices and a couple of dishes of the day. I had courgetti with a tomato pesto sauce and a chocolate cake. Both were delicious! The staff didn't speak great English but were very friendly and tried their best to explain the menu. Eat in or take away.

Pros: Lots of options, Not expensive , Delicious, fresh food

Cons: Needs more outdoor seating

A personal favourite

Been here a few times now, I can safely say I like it a lot! Everything is vegan and they have a very interesting menu, not only the same old boring vegan Burger. I loved both the Focaccia and the wrap but maybe the ingredients change from season to season

Pros: Wrap

Cons: Very cheap - a focaccia is 4,90€ and a wrap 5,90€

back-street crawling pays dividends

A great place to grab a burger and a beer if you're a footsore vegan who's had it up to there with 'culture'. Cheap and tasty food and popular with students (the uni is just round the corner), this is a real find- fast food that is vegetarian or vegan and that tastes GOOD!

Pros: Fast food that is not junk, Friendly, helpful service, Good 'artisan' beer

Cons: You'll need a map to find it., Limited seating- hardly their fault

best place for vegans/vegetarians in Bologna

I really liked this small takeaway sandwich shop, centrally located in the university area.
The food was excellent, mostly prepared with bio ingredients.
I've been there several times and so I could taste many sandwiches and snacks filled by delicious and creamy sauces accompaining seitan burgers,tempeh, vegan hot dog..... delicious.
Recently they have expanded the menu with
other vegan specialties like Pannella, the traditional Sicilian chickpea fritters, and indian potato Tikki, and "Polpettine di pane vegan".
And to wash it all down drink "White dog beer": is a friendly advice!!

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, inexpensive

Cons: outdoor seating
