went to this lovely restaurant located near the famous blue synagogue in florence.ate here 1st time in 2011,with an italian business friend.and we were surprised to know it was a vegetarian restaurant.this may 2013.since we were an hour away from florence we decided to again eat here.i can truly say it was one of the best meals i have eaten ...since we are vegetarians i was not impressed by any restaurant serving vegetarian food on my trip -i travelled to moniga del garda and chianti(15 days trip)lovely ambience,excellent varieties and served warmly.

I would have to claim this restaurant as my worst dining experience in Florence. I am not vegetarian although there are so many wonderful seasonal vegetables in Tuscany that you could make to die for amazing meals. Try hand made ravioli with spinach and ricotta or with pear and pecorino. Five of us ordered different meals the onion soup was more like bread soup with a dash of onion, the specialty pasta 'Il Sedano Allegro' that means the Happy Celery looked my like The Sad Celery, gratin artichoke looked quite nice although they are in season so you can not go wrong. My vegetable hamburger was topped with some kind of pinkish mayonnaise and very sad boiled potatoes. The wine was actually quite good.
If you are vegetarian you can find amazing and wonderful meals at any typical restaurant in Florence DO NOT GO TO SEDANO ALLEGRO!

We had supper there with a local friend. Nice variety of veg dishes, neatly presented, not overcooked and pleasantly spiced. Desserts were rather average. Ample wine selection. We arrived early and had booked a table but by 8:00 PM, the place was chockfull so despite the rather negative comments from other travellers, locals seem to appreciate this type of veg cuisine. We're glad we were introduced to this restaurant and will return. It's opposite the synagogue so relatively easy to find.

Given that it seems italian vege restaurants don't often serve dishes based on lentils or pulses we found this one quite good. Went at lunch time when it wasn't very busy and had good and pleasant service. Thought they depended too much on seitan - but enjoyed what we had. Would return.
