We were recommended this restaurant by a friend and it did not disappoint! The restaurant was very busy even though a Tuesday evening, filled with locals, always a good sign. The food was excellent, with lots of vegetarian and even some vegan options. Good value as well.

What an amazing place to eat. Litteraly I've been a while since I've eaten so well. Amazing atmosphere, service and delicious food. Everything is tasty and well presented. It was an incredible surprise. Luckly I don't live far from this restaurant so I'll go back there as soon as I can.

Beautiful interior but does not reach its potential. The food is good and the service is decent, nice staff but a lacking a bit at attention. They should be better than they are, you have the feeling that everyone can do better, maybe thay just had a bad evening.

I dined once when in Bologna for business and will surely get back: the menu has a wide range of excellent, traditional and creative vegetarian dishes but can satisfy also non vegetarian, the staff is very friendly, the service timely and attentive.

Nice, cool, functional restaurant... welcoming smiles and service... a menu that pleased the vegetarians and our vegans in our party - tempeh, tofu and saiten dishes on offer - as well as the carnivores - chicken, beef and pork. The dishes were creative, the ingredients fresh; the wine list was comprehensive.

It went to Zenzero during the week and didn't have a reservation. It was very full when I arrived. Only after asking twice, the waiter mentioned that I will need to stay at the bar, which is very tiny and right next to the entrance door. There are children running around and the phone is constantly ringing, all right next... More

After about one year since my last visit, I have found the quality not decreased. Wonderful selection of creative & healthy food. To recommend also for vegetarians, even if there is also quite a lot of meaty stuff. I had a delicious filled pasta (tortelloni), millefoglie and a very good dessert with mascarpone. Again, to recommend!

Our first night in Bologna and we chose this lovely place. We arrived with no reservation and found the service was great. We were helped choosing items from the menu and when we went to leave the waiter ordered a cab for us and dealt with the taxi driver. The food was delicious and the restaurant was packed. We were...
