I called when I saw they have vegan options and said I would like something to eat on the beach. The woman on the phone suggested arrancini balls and caprese salad - all vegan. The vegan cheese was so fresh, and everything was delicious! The box to carry our food to the beach was just right. The door says they can make anything on their menu vegan!

Hidden gem. Phenomenal vegan cooking

Call in advance to let them know you’re vegan (and any other allergies you might have — they’re very celiac / gluten free friendly as well), reservations recommended as it is a very small place. The owner Teresa (who is also the head chef) has a deep understanding of how to make impeccable vegan dishes. Real deal authentic Italian food just as good, if not better, than anything you can get at a pricey North End restaurant. 10/10 every time. Order family style — you won’t regret it. They also have vegan cannolis on the weekends!

Vegan friendly chef

Vegan arancini balls, vegan cannoli, plenty of options, what more could you possibly want? The chef is absolutely fantastic and was super great about making things vegan. Menu is incredibly flexible. I mentioned I was hoping to get arancini with some pasta and she said “I’ll take care of you, don’t worry” and I had a delicious vegan meal exactly what I wanted.

Pros: Amazing food, Plenty of options, Server/chef great about vegan options

Cons: Absolutely none

Just call and ask for something vegan, She’ll make it for you!

I always get the rice balls (incredible) and a main dish, I just take whatever she’ll make, I don’t even ask! Usually a delicious pasta with some kind of sauce and either potatoes or tofu as a base!

Awesome vegan italian

Had a fantastic four course Italian meal yesterday! All improv menu, just mention you're vegan and Teresa and her staff will take care of you! Bruschetta, arancini with almond milk, zucchini pasta and unfortunately no cannoli for me as they were out of vegan filling, but my party thoroughly enjoyed the non vegan ones. Highly recommend especially in mixed company.

Should be 5 starts all the way!

If Happy cow allowed me to do 5 stars for such a great place that does non vegan and vegan foods she would get it. Teresa is a wonderful person and aims to please everyone. After one visit you would become a friend of hers.
