This restaurant is great. It is a typical italian restaurant/pizzeria, but it caters for gluten free, dairy free and vegan diets too. The staff is very friendly and the lady that owns the restaurant takes great care in explaining and adapting the menu to any requirements. I had the most amazing vegan pasta with garlic, broccoli and seitan, as a starter I had caprese salad with rice cheese and an apple cake for dessert!! The ingredients are all fresh and the portions are very generous. Next time I go I am going to try their pizza with vegan cheese... can't wait!!!

Pros: Fresh ingredients, Friendly staff, Tasty food

Good homemade food

This restaurant could just seem a mediocre pizzeria from the outside, but it's not. Food is hearty and ingredients used are local and fresh, and pretty everything, from pasta to cakes, is homemade. Vegan choices are many, and portions are big.
We started with some veggies and a dish of farinata, moving on to polenta with mushrooms (also available with seitan), and seitan-filled homemade ravioli. Vegan cakes and dessers are also good and quite chocolatey: we had a rice chocolate cream with pears, and a chocolate-peach cake.
Just remember to tell the waiters that you're vegan, since veg dishes change daily and they are not written in the menu.
Staff are also very friendly, and so is the owner, a lady who takes great care in welcoming suggestions and comments.

Pros: good food, big portions, good vegan choice
Cons: can be crowdy
