Flora is a vegan restaurant in Verona, also gluten free. I loved our dinner there, it was just perfect before going to see Carmen at the Opera. Arena di Verona is only a few minutes away. I have only praises for them, the food was delicious and the service was spot-on. I would love to visit them again, without any doubt.
They are open for lunch and dinner. The decor is wonderful as you can see in the following picture. Also, at the end of the post there are two pictures with one of the most interesting features of the restaurant.
We arrived a few minutes after it opened for the dinner service and so I could take a picture of the table before it was too busy. Even so, there were a few other people there, who arrived before we did. With that wonderful food, I’m not surprised that it is busy.
As usual, we got different dishes and shared them between us.
We ordered Aperols, as one does in Italy.
For starters we had Gratin in Armonia which is made with artichokes and a vegan cheese. I think it had an interesting taste, but I am not sure about it. I loved the second starter we had, so that’s what I would order next time.
Named cappuccino, this was an white and green asparagus soup. It was so good, we both enjoyed it a lot.
Tempeh was one of the mains, with salad a la Rousse. I was surprised to see that this salad is rather common in Italy. It is a well known Romanian dish, a mix of vegetables with mayo. The tempeh was beautiful and worked lovely with the salad.
Second dish was tofu with veggies. I think this is one of the best dishes I had in Italy. It was so good, the tofu was perfectly seasoned.
We also had desserts, a coffee cheesecake, which was really good.
We also had a raw dessert. My favourite thing about Italian desserts is the amount of sugar they are adding to these dishes. Neither was too sweet and the flavours could come through nicely.
This is the feature I mentioned before, a well, which is lightened up in the evenings, as you can see in the picture below.
Flora is on Stradone Maffei 8c, 37121. It is open for lunch and dinner. I suggest making a reservation because it can be busy.
