La Vecchia Latteria

Traditional Italian vegetarian fare

La Vecchia Latteria Review

With only two small dining rooms, this family-owned lunch spot dishes out an impressive amount of vegetarian cuisine. Opened in 1951 by Giorgio's parents, La Vecchia Latteria (The Old Dairy) began life as a breakfast place, but transformed into a vegetarian restaurant when Giorgio's wife Teresa started introducing her Sicilian influence into the kitchen in the 1980s. Nestled on a small street just steps away from the Duomo, it offers an array of freshly prepared, in-season dishes, including parmigiana di melanzane (eggplant parmesan), lasagna with taleggio cheese, and scamorza dolce (sweet cheese made from Italian cows' milk). The menu changes daily; try the mixed plate, which offers a taste of eight different small dishes. To beat the lunch rush arrive before 1 pm. Between the months of February and July, on Tuesday and Thursday nights, the restaurant hosts an aperitivo called "Eppi Auar" (Happy Hour) from 7 to 10 pm with live music and an all-you-can-eat buffet for €9.
