The 8 Best Vegan and Vegetarian Restaurants in Bologna

Picture of Francesca Masotti
Updated: 10 December 2017

Let’s be honest: Bologna is the perfect destination for meat-lovers. Why? The typical foods of the town are lasagne (a local pasta cooked in an oven and made with meat), piadina with ham, mortadella, tortellini (made with meat). But don’t panic; it is possible to find excellent vegetarian and vegan restaurants in a town that won’t disappoint you.

 

Botanica Lab

Botanica Lab is a vegan restaurant and takeaway in Bologna that offers creative cooking, gluten-free dishes, cakes and pastries. The menu changes from lunch to dinner and is made with fresh, seasonal products. Botanica Lab is not just a restaurant; it’s more of a laboratory, which also offers cooking courses throughout the year.

Clorofilla

Clorofilla is the first vegan restaurant in Bologna. It opened in 1984 and has one of the largest selections of veganized Bolognese delicacies in town, including pasta, salads, seitan dishes, panini and vegan pastries. Here, you can also find a fantastic selection of organic teas. All the ingredients are organic and chosen personally by the chef from the local markets. We strongly recommend you to book a table in advance because Clorofilla is often busy.
