Best vegan pizza!

4 Posted on 06 / 09 / 2014

Although Pala serves meat, they have a clearly marked vegan menu with pasta and pizza items. The pizzas are truly delicious. I believe they use Field Roast products for their vegan sausage. The pizza is as close to authentic Italian pizza as you can get, I do believe. Of course, it's more expensive than say, Two Boots, but the food and atmosphere is also very different.

Pala is a relaxing, somewhat chic restaurant. The front of the restaurant is made up of garage doors that open up during warmer months. It's candle-lit in the evenings. Pala serves fancy cocktails that cost a pretty penny but are truly potent and delicious.

The pizza is remarkable. I can't wait to go back!!!

Pros: Upscale vegan pizza, Romantic atmosphere, Vegan menu clearly marked
Cons: Kind of pricey but worth it

Great vegan pizza in the Lower East Side. Very nice setting and the staff are polite and attentive. Perhaps a touch on the pricey side and would probably reserve for special occasions, although I'm craving another potato and broccolini pizza now just thinking about it. Check it out.

Pros: vegan options, great taste
Cons: price

Great vegan menu, could do with some diversity

The food and service here were both really good, but the entrees suffer a bit from lack of creativity. Or, to be precise, ingredients. The gnocchi, for example, is delicious but it is not much more than gnocchi with tomato sauce and daya cheese. Some vegetables would have been nice. Still a good place to eat though.

Pros: service , vegan menu

This is a nice little pizza place on the north end of the Lower East Side that serves meat and dairy, but about 1/3 of the menu (back page) is vegan. I had the arrabiata pizza, with no cheese (I am not a Daiya fan), and I talked them into adding soy sausage. Apparently, the management is opposed to substitutions/alterations to their pizzas, but they took care of me. It was very good. Thin crust, fresh, and flavorful.

Pros: nice ambiance, fresh , reasonable prices
Cons: no modifications

Amazing pizza! This restaurant serving primarily pizza entree's is wonderful- tasty food, nice staff, and enjoyable atmosphere. I love the extensive vegan menu, that many of the vegan items can be made gluten free (which is sadly unusual in restaurants with gluten free options), and that vegan and gluten free items are prepared separately and are cooked on their individual pan and separate oven. Also, it is nice to be able to eat out at a place where my omnivore friends are happy to eat, too- they always taste and enjoy my pizza, too. The menu is set, which can be annoying not to craft your own topping selections and pizza; however, their gourmet pizza creations are very tasty, so it doesn't make a difference. The Etna is my favorite gf vegan pizza- it's incredibly delicious!

Pros: Tasty food and drinks, great atmosphere, nice staff
Cons: sometimes the gf crust is too salty, sometimes the bartender is patronizing , can't create own pizza
