vegan options

Posted on 05 / 08 / 2015

The staff spoke English and explained to me what was on the menu and what was vegan, about half the menu was vegan, food was ok! vegan gelato was nice. The restaurant has lots of seating inside and out. For dinner, gelato and drink came to 20 euros for one person.

Nice little veggie place

Posted on 01 / 01 / 2014

Handy little veggie place tucked away behind the big fascist era post office on Via Roma. Has a small menu with a couple of vegan options or they can make other items vegan too. Lunch is self service (order at the kitchen and pay at bar) and about 4-5 euros for a main course and dinner is table service and a bit more expensive 8-9 e for a main. Staff are friendly, don't speak huge amounts of English - the chef seems to though. Food is fairly simple pastas, risottos etc but their home made bread is nice and they have vegan cake too.

Pros: Vegan food , Nice quiet location , Friendly staff

Simple and healthy organic food

Posted on 02 / 14 / 2013

We ate at Freschette several time during our stay in Palermo last December. The restaurant is very small (can sit around 25) and unpretentious, but still has a nice modern/indie decor. The place is frequented by locals and the staff doesn't speak English very well. In fact, the staff and the other customers even seemed surprised to see tourists in the establishment. Nonetheless, everyone was nice and we were able to convey that we were vegans. They told us what the vegans options were and offered to adapt their recipes for us if we wanted to try some of the non-vegan options on the menu, which I think changes weekly. The chef was very nice and seemed genuinely happy to serve vegan customers.

The food itself was good, simple, healthy and inexpensive. A meal with a fresh juice was about 10 euros, which is really a bargain for a restaurant in Palermo. Don't expect anything fancy or exceptional, but if you're homesick and craving for a simple healthy and comforting meal, Freschette is the right place to go.
