A culinary journey without labels

Vegetarian delicacies from Sicily

Our menu is based on organic and mostly vegetable ingredients, with a strong preference for Sicilian products whenever available. We would like to point out that the cuisine we present is essentially oriented towards satisfying every customer: we believe that labels such as vegan or gluten-free serve to outline food characteristics, but that the real mission of our bistro is to delight the most avid carnivores with our dishes based on vegetables and legumes!

Journey through the world of Ecologica

Ecologica first opened as a shop for organic products. Our choice comes from a simple observation of the world around us. Climate change, global health problems and last but not least, the increasingly less tasty ingredients that the market offers every day are the obvious consequence of the exploitation of the earth. Over the years, we have seen how the price we pay to feed ourselves is not limited to the money we directly spend on the products: pollution, pesticides and diseases are actually a hidden cost behind price tags, which ultimately everyone has to pay.

Good energy

Quality breakfast

We exclude saturated fats. At Ecologica, breakfast is truly the most nutritious meal: cereals, fruit, plant-based yogurt, porridge, granola… everything in our book is really good for you!

Quality breakfast
Not just any coffee

Specialty coffee, the experience

One of the most beloved drinks in the world is also one of those that does not find the prominent place it deserves in almost all cafès, who choose profit and low quality. At Ecologica we serve specialty coffee, blends selected to make the difference between a coffee and… THE coffee. There are also numerous options for your cappuccino, in addition to organic cow’s milk, such as oat, coconut, almond, soy, millet and our exquisite secret plant-based mix!

Specialty coffee, the experience

Organic and unique grocery

Organic farming excludes chemical products from the supply chain, but there’s more: the people who grow organic plants have the interests of the earth and humanity at heart, they respect annual rotations, they regenerate the landscape. The fruits of this commitment can only be delicious: sometimes with singular shapes, but precisely for this reason, more incline to be loved.

Organic and unique grocery
Lovely atmosphere and excellent service

Ecologica for business brunch

You can’t go wrong for your business brunch: you certainly want to make a good impression in a peaceful, clean environment where the service is excellent and fast. All of this, obviously, must not be second to the quality of the dishes and drinks! Our elegant terracotta tables with island decorations are ideal for welcoming loving couples, families, and why not? Solo travelers who take the time to appreciate the good things in life.

Feast for the palate

Not “just” a salad

Salads at Ecologica are a feast for the palate. Often even those who don’t usually consider salads a delicious dish end up asking for an encore and for the recipe for our dressing!
Which is actually very simple: Sicilian extra virgin olive oil, lemon, salt and seasonal herbs. The secret is to season at the moment and choose the highest quality ingredients.

Great food spot with lots of vegan options if that’s your thing. Very friendly service. Nice little spot to stop for a bit and a glass of vino. Very friendly service 🙂

Pete Greenburg

Absolutely wonderful. We ate here twice and did some shopping in the store. I’ve been traveling full-time for over two years, and this could be my favorite restaurant.

Jon Hartbar

We absolutely loved this place! Whether you’re vegan or not it’s an amazing little café and grocery store in a great neighborhood.

Skully Pleasant

A nice little shop and restaurant away from the busy streets and located in a peaceful area. The service was beyond good, and all of the staff was so nice, always making sure you’re satisfied. The vegan food we ordered was delicious, especially the pastry filled with veggies. I would absolutely go here again. 🙂

Chiara Valguarnera

Delicious lunch, with courses at the same time very tasty and light. Very friendly and kind staff. Fresh air flows outside, therefore excellent even in summer. I will definitely be back!
