Really delicious

The place is really beautiful and family friendly. There’s a small store and a book store at the entrance and the staff is super friendly. The prices are a little bit expensive but is really worthy. Love it!!

Pros: A respectful amount of vegan options

Cons: A little bit expensive

Nice hipster place

Clean but cozy atmosphere, it was quite ok but the burger was a bit dry. Still would go there again

Excellent Veg/Vegan options

Zoo was easy to find, along one of the main streets in Bologna. We stopped in after a yoga class down the street. Menu was written on the wall in mostly english. Staff did not speak much english but we did not have any trouble communicating. My friend and I both got the vegan burgers. I got mine without a bun.

The way their menu works is that it's sorted by categories, i.e. breakfast/burger/bagel/salad, and then further broken down into a meat/veg/vegan and special meat/special veg/special vegan option. The veg and vegan options were substantial...no one likes when they get a mason jar full of lettuce as their "vegan" option...this items contained tempe, tofu, a variety of vegetables, offered vegan mayo, vegan cheese etc.

Atmosphere is nice, there's ample seating and they included water, and a side in their price. The inside is also a cute book shop/store.

Would have given 5 stars but I'm not allowed to do so because restaurant offers meat products.

Pros: substantial meals, very good flavor, good service

Cons: limited english, limited options , serves meat products
