The philosophy of The Lemon Tree Bistrot Bio is to make sure that our customers rediscover the best traditions of Italian cuisine revisited with modern criteria to safeguard health and the environment: seasonal organic products, possibly from the sorroundings, in a relaxing, informal and welcoming environment. 

Organic farming is the basis of our vision: a method of cultivation and breeding that only allows the use of natural substances and excludes the use of chemical synthesis substances (fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides). This means that we are going to select only products that are the result of a supply chain that avoids the excessive exploitation of natural resources (in particular soil, water and air), supporting a more sustainable development model. 

Our raw materials are the result of a process that respects the environment, the seasons and the territory. Processed according to natural and low-impact process and proposed through a personalized service based on the tastes and preferences of our customers: cooking and seasonings that do not alter their authentic flavors. Fish and seafood are only fresh and fished, if possible, in our seas. 

The Lemon Tree Bistrot Bio also looks to the future. The market for organic food, in fact, is constantly growing. Among the reasons behind this interest, consumers recognize the superior quality of these products compared to their ‘classic’ options. They are aware of their greater safety, healthiness and greater respect for the environmen. 

The quality of organic products today has also found its place within the European legislation. The EC Regulation n. 834/2007 establishes that one of the objectives of organic production is to supply high quality products.
