Good food, huge wine selection and nice service

4 Posted on 08 / 07 / 2014

This is a small restaurant with a big wine selection. The vegetarian food was prepared nicely and was of good quality. The dessert selection for vegans was very small. The waiter was helpful and polite. Because of its location and quality of food, we visited it several times.

Pros: food, service, wine
Cons: vegan sweet election

One of our favorites

5 Posted on 06 / 07 / 2014

We very much enjoyed our meal here. They had a number of items that could be prepared gluten free. We enjoyed the roasted potatoes with ginepro, taleggio and black truffle. They were able to substitute a gluten free pasta for the pasta with ewe cheese and black truffle. The courgette flowers stuffed with potatoes and pesto and rolled in crisp rice noodles were memorable and unique. The semifreddos were amazing. I had the carameled fig with vin brule sauce and my husband had the zabaglione parfait with caramel sauce and pine nuts. Wonderful! At the start of the meal, they asked red or white and then paired a wine with the meal. It went very well with our selections.

Pros: Gluten Free Friendly, Gourmet food, Great dessert
Cons: A little slow

Italian French Vibe

4 Posted on 10 / 19 / 2013

The food was very good. We found the restaurant around 8:00 and we're able to get a table without reservations as it was before the Italian dinner rush which is closer to 9:00. The waitress was extremely helpful and attentive to our needs. She spoke a little English and gave us the menu with the specially marked vegan/vegan modifiable dishes (about 7 or 8 dishes all together).This is a wino place (which I can be intimidated by as my husband or I are no wine experts), but I asked to a glass of red wine and the waitress brought us three different reds to try just for a glass (aka we did not have to buy the bottle).

For dinner starters are about 7€ and 1st and 2nd courses are 10-12€., which seems pretty standard. There is only one chef and one waitress and once the room filled up (which we were happy to see it did) the service understandably slowed but we were happy to watch the locals and make friends with fellow vegetarian tourists sitting at a nearby table. An enjoyable experience with very good cuisine and wine.

Pros: Good cuisine, Helpful service, Mixture of locals and tourists
Cons: Service slowed when the room filled up

Very few choices

3 Posted on 10 / 12 / 2013

The waiter was very nice in explaining us the vegan choices in the menu, which were very few. For a restaurant that advertises itself as vegetarian/vegan, the vegan part was not a priority. The food was good, though and the service too. The restaurant is super cute and the wine selection very wide.

Pros: Service, Tasty, Ambiance
Cons: Few choices

Good but not the best

4 Posted on 08 / 19 / 2013

Arancia Blu is nice restaurant located near to Piazza del Popolo but I couldn't find it at the first time.
There was charming waiter who made everything to make me feel good in his restaurant.
Food was tasty but oversalted.

Pros: good location, good atmosphere, nice waiter
Cons: oversalted food

Good food

4 Posted on 08 / 15 / 2013

It's an interesting restaurant. It surprised me that there was not air-conditioning. But the food is OK. The vegan pasta with red sauce is really excellent. The red sauce should be the best vegan one I have ever tasted. The chef also kindly tried to replace the milk in white sauce with soy milk for the vegetable pie. But that sauce tasted salty...
The chef should be one of the top vegetarian cookers in Rome. I hope that more vegan cuisines will be provided.

Pros: Good vegan food, nice atmosphere
Cons: no air-conditioning

Can't afford it

2 Posted on 09 / 25 / 2012

The food is good, more "vegetarian friendly - italian style", than typical vegetarian. The place looks like a gauche caviar french bistro and it's expensive (80 € for two people and i swear we didn't eat the whole restaurant :D ), at least for italian lower/middle class pockets.
If you can afford it, enjoy!

Very good restaurant

5 Posted on 05 / 30 / 2012

I had dinner at Arancia Blu last week and it was amazing. The place is big but quiet, and it is nice to eat surrounded by books and bottles of wine! :--)
Every dish is unique, and you can get a lot of ideas on how to cook new types of vegan/vegetarian food from the menu. There is also a wide choice of wines, teas and coffees.
You can also get pizzas, but not every day.
I also like the fact that there are a lot of informations (history, properties...) on oil, wine, and other ingredients.

I recommend it for sure!

PS: we were two, we spent 38 euros in total with a starter, two main dishes, tea and coffee.

Pros: wide choice, unique and good food, friendly staff

Excellent food, a little far from the city centre

4 Posted on 09 / 17 / 2011

It takes a tram ride to reach l'Arancia Blue from the city centre, but this is well worth the trip. The restaurant is lovely, offers indoors and outdoors sitting. The menu has a lot of vegan options, unfortunately these are not clearly marked and we relied on the help and patience of the waitress who pointed everything to us. Food portions are very generous and the wine list is extensive as the restaurant is also a wine bar. Advance reservation for late dinner is recommended as the restaurant tends to fill up around 9pm.

Pros: Food, Wine list, Staff friendliness
Cons: Distance from downtown

New Location! Fantastic!!! English Menu

5 Posted on 04 / 20 / 2009

Absolutely loved Arancia Blu. They have about 4 or 5 vegan menu items that are out of this world. The place is WINE oriented so the best bet is to go with a local Lazio wine which will run 15 Euros (least expensive). Its a ways out of town and you can take the Tram there or Bus, cab rides get expensive. You'll be asking yourself why did I travel all this way, but once you get there and settle down you'll realize its well worth the trip. The Potato Pasta / Ravioli / Rice noodle wrapped flowers, etc were all amazing! The ambience is incredible and service impeccable!

Pros: vegan friendly, english menu, upscale
Cons: far from city center, $30Euro/person avg

!BE CAREFUL, NEW ADDRESS!

4 Posted on 07 / 31 / 2008

J went in this restaurant a lot of time before they changed place where they are. Now j don't know how nice is new place! Because J'm Italian and J love wines too, j think that is a very good place to have a nice and a not too much exspensive vegetarian dinner. Good taste and smell about the food, but , j think, not fancy way to show every dish. However everytime j had good meals. They had also a very very interesting wine cellar, that's because j think you have to try this place.
But above all my review is to allert you that they have already changed their rooms, so they aren't yet at Via dei Latini, they chenged their address, and now they are at VIA PRENESTINA 396, Rome as well.
So be careful if you are looking for them.
Veggie Kisses.

Pros: interesting wine cellar, healthy taste, not too much exspensive
Cons: not fancy, maybe alittle bit far from the Centre

Fancy place better for vegetarians

3 Posted on 05 / 13 / 2008

We came here for our pre-marathon carbo loading meal. Probably not the best choice, it's fancy and the portions are on the small side. It's also a wine bar, but we resisted from indulging. Our server understood vegan and spoke very good English, so was able to tweak some menu items for us. The food itself was ok, but not fantastic. Lots of black truffles! Lots of use of cheese and dairy in the menu, this place would probably be good for lacto-ovos. We got lucky by checking back for a reservation cancellation, it fills up quick so a res is highly recommended!

Pros: Helpful staff, Black Truffles!
Cons: Not very vegan friendly, Kinda pricey
