Opened by the same owners of The Elephant in April 2018, Dumbo is all about wood-fired Italian food, 100% vegetarian. But there’s more. They have a coffee lab and an amazing cocktail bar. From breakfast to dinner, through cheeky aperitivos—Italian-style happy hours—you can taste the freshness of the products, sourced by their permaculture garden and grown in compost-enriched and spring-fed soils in north-central Bali. Also, 1% of all profits are donated to orangutan conservation in Indonesia. Food for good at its best. Do try their fried zucchini flowers.
