Respond to Review of Il Vegetariano
by KristaMarie

Review: I have been living in Florence for 3 months, and this is hands down the BEST vegan food I have ever eaten! The menu is all in Italian, and always FRESH and DELICIOUS. The restaurant is always packed, but you find room (seriously who knew how many Italian vegetarians there were in Firenze?!) and people will gladly share a table with you. I always get it to go, the maximum I've ever paid for a meal is 9.50 but there are cheaper options. There are vegan, vegetarian and gluten free items with coordinating symbols next to them. I go here at least once a week! I tried Dolce Vegan (my friend used to rave about this place until I introduced her to Il Veg) and it was frozen meals that they pulled out of the freezer with a lack of seasoning and not nearly as much love that goes into Il Vegetariano cuisine. Yeah, I usually don't know what I'm ordering, but if it's vegan I know I won't break out in hives with a swollen throat... AND ITS ALWAYS DELICIOUS AND EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED. Being Dairy-free in Italy is very hard, but Il Veg makes it so worth it. The staff is also very nice, the food comes out quick because they make it in bulk to keep the flow of customers going. It is all made fresh daily though, so I find this better than keeping it in the freezer and popping it in the microwave! I have had the polpettone twice, made out of grains with tomato sauce, but the way they treat their seitan is out of this world. What are you waiting for, go to Il Vegetariano! Oh and leave room for dessert...
