During a weekend in Florence, I decided to treat myself and got to a lovely bio (European for organic) vegetarian dinner at La Raccolta in Florence (Firenze), Italy. I found the vegan restaurant on Tripadvisor and could not have been more happy with the natural healthy dishes, biodynamic wine, vegan desserts, and of course the ambiance of the restaurant itself.
This quote from Charles Darwin is one of my favorite reminders on why leaving animal products out of our diets is ethical, sustainable, and the compassionate choice. La Raccolta in Firenze was an obvious choice when searching TripAdvisor for a vegetarian or vegan restaurant. From the bio vino I sipped on, too the savory 'farm to table' dinner and vegan dessert I am still dreaming of, La Raccolta is a must for any vegan, vegetarian, pecatrarian, paleo, health conscious or envirmentally concious individual.
Visit La Raccolta online at www.LaRaccolta.it
or in person at Via Giacomo. Leopardi, 2 - 50121 Firenze
If you still need some more information (aka another opinion) that this restaurant is worth your time, I suggest checking out Ali Seiter's write up via her blog 'Chick Peas + Change' on La Raccolta from 2014 (before they remodeled) and you'll see that this restaurant has the history of quality, consistency and taste.
