Via del Suffragio, 7, Lucca, Italy

Serves meat, vegan options available. Quiet place whose menu has icons denoting vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free. At least one vegan option in each section. Try the broccoli cream and the spaghetti with mint-basil pesto.

Amazing Vegan Meal - Edit

Found this place on Happy Cow and had a evening meal on the last night of our holiday. Wow it was amazing, so tasty and beautifully presented. So pleased to have found this place and will definitely return. Highly recommended. Thank you so much Cantine Bernardini 👍 would give 5/5 stars but happy cow would not allow

Helpful service, good food & ambience - Edit

The staff know what vegans can and cannot eat, vegan items labelled on menu. Not lots of choice but there is enough and the food is both interesting and tasty. Well worth visiting especially for a its warm ambience. Several waiters also good at speaking English if needed.

so many good options - Edit

delicious food and an easy menu, the zuppa di farro alla Lughesse was probably the best thing we've eaten so far this trip! No soy milk but the vegan hazelnut and fruit dessert was very good

Clearly labelled vegan options, great staff and ambience - Edit

Tuscany is better then most EU areas for vegan food but you always need to ask about the dish. This restaurant was a welcome relief with menu items clearly marked vegan, vegetarian and GF. I had the cecina starter followed by spelt and bean soup, both local dishes. The following night I enjoyed the pesto spaghetti- vegan for a change! The staff were friendly with fluent English spoken, service excellent, and the place busy after 8pm. I definitely recommend booking! The owner's daughter is a vegan and he wants to create a place where we can go, find food easily, and not have to ask about every dish. He has created a menu with vegan and vegetarian options with each course. What a welcome break from the typical cheese-less pizza and penne pomodoro options! They have plenty of vegan sides, but the verdure mista was a little too fried and thin for me.

Pros: vegan dishes labelled and available with each cour, good wine list

Cons: booking needed! , wines not listed as vegan

delightful restaurant in the heart of Lucca - Edit

After struggling to find good vegetarian options in Italy it's wonderful to stumble across a restaurant that embraces vegetarian and vegan food alongside its local meat favourites. There is a vegan/veg option for each of the three courses that surpass the usual aubergine parmigiana. The staff at the Cantine are friendly, passionate about their food and speak good English. We went early and got a table but it got busy later in the evening so do book.

Pros: excellent vegetarian / vegan options, friendly staff, great location

Cons: limited vegetarian choice - one / two per course

Fantastic vegan options from the region; very high quality - Edit

On an afternoon stroll in Lucca I came around a corner and the quaint Osteria Cantine Bernardini caught my eye. I took a closer look at the menu and was very pleased to see that they serve regional cuisine and designate vegan items on the menu. I returned later in the evening for dinner and though there were many diners, we were able to be seated outdoors on a very pleasant evening. Everything we ordered was delicious, and the service was great! This osteria is a bit off of the beaten path and was less touristy than many in Lucca. I highly recommend this restaurant for a taste of regional Lucchese cuisine with the assurance that you'll be getting a high-quality vegan meal. I'd have given it 5 stars if I could, but the restaurant serves meat.
