First Review by santafeamanda

lovely place - Edit

Tje place itself is very lovely - perfect also if you‘re vegan or vegetarian but traveling with omnivores. It is very easy to order from the menu, as it is clearly labeled what is vegan and what isn‘t. There was a buffet (lunch time) which wasn‘t labeled and clearly had meat and cheeses. I ended up getting the pumkin soup, which was delicious! The portion wasn‘t huge - a perfectly healthy portion. But as I usually eat a little bit more, I was hungry quite soon again.
Price was ok. I think it was 8€ for the soup and 2€ for the water. The stuff was very sweet, so overall a very good experience!

Happy to find this place in Rome - Edit

It isn't hard to stay vegan in Rome, but staying vegan while eating healthy is another matter. During our 6 days in Rome we kept coming back here to eat. We had a lunch buffet one day that was very good. The vegan pista was excellent. Staff was friendly and prices good. On Saturday evening they had a small ensemble for entertainment. Highly recommend. Would give 5 stars but the app won't let me. Given the paucity of true vegan in Rome, this is a mistake.

Pros: good food, healthy vegan

Disapointed - Edit

The vegan burger was delicious but really pricy in regard of its small size. The fries were good. When I asked if there was any vegan desserts (nowhere to be found on the menu), there was only a brownie. The waitress didn't mention that it was raw (I would still have tried it if she did though). It was absolutely awful, tasted like the ground. My friend who ordered it too had the same feeling. I can't bring myself to think that someone must have decided that it was good enough to be served in a restaurant.

Vegan menu - Edit

There is an exclusive vegan menu which offers a lot of choice - the fresh juices also delicious.
We had a vegan burger which was good but really tiny - portions here are small so not the best value.
We didn't have time for dessert but noted they offer raw vegan brownies.
Staff were friendly and understood our dietary requirements well.

Pros: Lots of choice!

Cons: Small portions, costly

Solid but small portions - Edit

Nice atmosphere, easy to find with an integrated vegan menu on the standard menu. It's just the portions were tiny and it took ages between courses so it's a three from me. Nice staff.

Pricey but deicious - Edit

Amazing vegan options! Atmosphere was amazing and loved being able to come here for dinner with my non vegan friend and both of us getting something amazing! I had the vegan burger and was probably the best I've ever had! My only issue is it is a bit price (€10 for my burger) for the amount of food given. Other than that loved it!

Pros: friendly staff, many options, great taste

Cons: fairly expensive, small portion sizes

Good with fresh ingredients - Edit

This Italian place is located on a main road pretty easy to find. They offer a vegan menu. I ordered 2 smoothies 6€ each (green dream & tropical green), although super tasty one was too milky (they use almond and coconut milk). I ordered a fruit plate 9€, tasted good. The antioxidant salad 7€, loved it. Finally the spinach meatballs 10€, tasted amazing. The staff was very attentive, I would return.

Great smoothie! - Edit

Stopped in for some food but looked very pricey! Many vegan options but we couldn't afford to eat here as the smoothie was pricey enough! Lovely decor and sometimes Ive seen a band playing in the evening which looks lovely!

Overall great but the toilets :P - Edit

The food was pretty good and the atmosphere very nice and stylish. The staff spoke fluent english and they where very kind and friendly. We ate there on New Years Eve and the manager was very stressed and re-arrenged the tables around us over and over again which made us a little uncomfortable and unwanted. I am sure if we went there on any other day the staff would have been much more relaxed :P

Great vegan selection - Edit

We walked by this place and they were advertising vegan options - the menu has a whole vegan section with 2-3 options per course, good variety of dishes to try. Atmosphere and location is really nice so we had dinner here.

I had a vegan pizza with sliced avocado, tomato, and a mustardy vegan mayonaise which I loved - the base was quite puffy and crisp with a crumbly coating. I found it so satisfying! It was a bit salty, but very flavourful - not the most subtle food but if you are hungry and just want to blast your tastebuds this might just be the perfect solution.

My girlfriend had a ratatouille and a simple pasta (spaghetti with olive oil, garlic, lemon and pepper) - she didn't enjoy it too much but I found it yum as well.

The service was good although I had to make sure they didn't serve us egg-pasta. One point for improvement would be offering vegan wines, our waitress wasn't aware that wines could be non-vegan! She was very friendly and had good English skills though.

I would definitely go back to try some of the other dishes! All in all definitely worth checking out.

Pros: Clearly marked vegan menu, Good variety of dishes, Tasty well-presented food

Cons: No vegan wine

Increíble descubrimiento - Edit

Carta vegana aparte (sin tener que traducir). Hay una especie de pizzas con crema de queso riquísimas y con ingredientes poco usuales. También hay comida y postres para crudiveganos muy ricos. Eso sí, para los veganos no hay buffet libre... Lo recomiendo.

Pros: Novedades sorprendentes.

Cons: Poca variedad.

Good food in handy location - Edit

Great option for vegans- loads of options marked on the menu, including deserts, and within walking distance of the main tourist attractions. It was busy when I went for lunch so you might have to wait for a table of you are unlucky. Good food though not exceptional. Reasonable price given its location.

Fresh vegan food in Rome - Edit

We really enjoyed this - about a third of the menu is vegan and a lot of it is raw. Smoothies, juices, salads, pizzas all in a really nice Italian cafe atmosphere. Very central location, friendly staff, clean. I highly recommend it!! Reasonably priced for Rome too.
I would have given it 5 stars but can't as per Happy Cow's policy (it serves meat)

Pros: reasonable prices, fresh food, lot of selection

Cons: smallish portions if you are used to US huge ones
