cheap and tasty vegan pizza

and very friendly and beautiful people in there as well
Just: the vegan pizza is just like a pizza without cheese. Still good, but I like it better with one of the many vegan cheese options.

Pros: cheap, tasty, friendly
Cons: no vegan cheese

The best Pizza in Portugal

Posted on 12 / 13 / 2014

I've been totally obsessed with Primo Basilico's Vegan Pizzas since I tried them, 1 year and a half ago, been there more than 20 times during this period.

They always have 1 or 2 vegan options (and at least a couple of vegetarian options as well) and they are usually awesome, my favourites being the Seitan Bolognese Calzone and the Zucchini, Red Onion and Sweet Potato pizza.

I've eaten quite a few vegan pizzas all over the world, but I'd have to say that Primo Basilico would probably easily be in my personal top 5 (or maybe even top 3.. #1 has to be viva herbal pizzeria in NYC)

Note: Just 4 cows because HappyCow doesn't allow 5 for a veg-friendly restaurant.

Pros: Vegan Options, Really fresh food, Tasty!
Cons: Parking is hard when you go there by car

Amazing veg and vegan pizza

Posted on 12 / 10 / 2014

As an Italian I'am really impressed with the pizza these two Italian guys make and as vegan really glad to find such a big choise of toppings aimed for the cows friends. Excellent those with cheekpea cream and tofu cream. Amazed with the arancina filled with caponata! Absolutely recommended!

A verdadeira pizza al taglio de Lisboa!

Posted on 01 / 16 / 2013

O Primo Basi­lico veio a Lisboa e revolucionou totalmente a nossa vida!

Porque? Ele trouxe a Alfama, em Lisboa, a pizza ao corte (em italiano "al taglio"), no verdadeiro estilo italiano. Uma alternativa de refeiçao rápida e de ótima qualidade!

O pleno respeito da tradiçao italiana e uma atençao particular a sustentabilidade sao dois ingredientes fundamentais. Para além daqueles pilares da cozinha italiana que nao sao produzidos no estrangeiro a base das pizzas - farinha, azeite virgem extra, fermento e sal - é feita com ingredientes portugueses! Ao lado da pizza, outros produtos típicos Italianos feitos no forno, alguns salgados e coisas doces, para dar uma escolha ainda mais variada aos visitantes da casa do Basílico.

Uma particular atençao em ter sempre no balcao mais opções vegetarianas e veganas, sendo nos também vegetarianos :)

Venham a Rua dos Remédios 37, ao pé do Museu do Fado, para experimentar o laboratório de cores e sabores italianos do Primo Basílico!

Primo Basílico has come to Lisbon and a foodie revolution is on the menu!
What happened?! Well, he has brought to Alfama, in Lisbon, what we Italians call "pizza al taglio" - pizza by the cut. Eating authentic Italian style.

A taste for traditional Italian cooking and a concern for sustainability are the main ingredients. So while Primo Basilico brings Italian taste, he makes the base from local ingredients. Tutti freschi!

Besides our pizza, be tempted by Primo Basilico's selection of many authentic Italian gastronomic specialties, savoury and sweet.

A special attention for always having more vegetarian and vegan options, since we the owners are vegetarians too :)

So come to Rua dos Remédios 37 in Alfama, close to the Fado Museum, for a feast on the eyes and taste buds at the kitchen of Primo Basilico!

Pros: excellent food, veg-friendly, good value
