Delicious pizza with vegan cheese - Edit

My partner and I love CinCin for a nice meal out. We also take our omni friends or family there when they come to visit. The staff are always lovely too. I highly recommend the Verdura pizza with vegan cheese. One thing to note is it can be a little loud when it's super busy.

Tasteless - Edit

We went there because of the good reviews on Happy Cow. There where no vegan disches on the menu exept the garlicbread which was ok but we could'nt taste the garlic at all. So he showed us some disches which they could skip the cheese. And they could make a pasta with tomatosauce too. Sounds good so we went for one each. The mushroom was ok but tasteless and the pasta was just pasta with peas and so little tomatosauce it didnt even taste tomato. It tasted pasta and oil. So i was very dissapointed when we thereafter got the check of witch my pasta dish was more expensive than the mushroom dish! When if i made it at home it would have cost me 3 dollars. Will not come back for pasta and peas for 27 dollar. Maybe try the pizza you might have more luck than us.

Pros: Sweet waitress, Nice decorations

Cons: Tasteless food, Expensive for what you get

VEGAN CHEESE - Edit

Even though Cin Cin doesn't have that many vegan options, their pizza is so good I need to give them a good rating.

The base was crispy, there was just the right amount of vegan cheese, the flavors worked very well together, and everything was cooked to perfection.

The environment is great too, would recommend for a date or stylish meet up location.

Pros: Vegan cheese pizza, classy environment with sleek interior, friendly staff

Cons: Small amount of options

Pizza good, salad left a bitter taste - Edit

We came in around 5:30pm on a Sunday without a booking and had no problem getting a seat. We were advised on vegan options and chose the Verdura pizza ($25) and the Fresca salad, which was vegan standard. We were not charged extra for vegan cheese in the pizza, which was delicious. The salad was a different story. It was dominated by bitter rocket, which was not offset by the olives, pine nuts or mandarin; and was a bit ordinary and insubstantial for $20. I fed this back (when asked) to (I assume) the owner or manager and he told me this was reasonable and they would actually be putting it up to $25. Kind of made me not want to go back.

Pros: Tasty pizza

Cons: Overpriced, bitter salad

great pizza and garlic bread - Edit

Great pizzas with vegan cheese, other options available too (mushroom risotto and vegan pasta). Would also recommend the garlic bread as a starter. Staff really friendly and it's nicely done out too!

Pros: nice venue, good pizzas

Not much choice for vegans - Edit

You can substitute regular cheese for vegan - no charge - great. This excludes white base and clazone however and most of the regular pizzas have meat on them. You are left with a limited choice (margarita, fungi or roast veg to memory). He had the fungi which was a margarita with some very sparingly sliced white mushroom. We both expected a little more in both volume and variety of mushrooms on a fungi pizza. I had a salad which was vegan by default: orange, fennel and rocket with pine nuts. It was nice although a little lacklustre, small touches such as toasting the pine nuts would have gone a long way. We were the only people in there so I feel the attention to detail could've been greater.

The best bit was, as others have commented, the garlic bread. I must add that it wasn't the best I've had or even close - it's just good garlic bread.

Would like to give more stars as the service was good and the food was perfectly nice. I don't think you need to pay restaurant prices for food like this though.

Pros: Vegan cheese, no extra charge, Good service, Nice setting

Cons: Small choice for vegans , It's ok... it's not the best?!

Authentic Italian pizza.... - Edit

Cin Cin is a nice Italian restaurant in Upper Cuba Street. Not a big street frontage but plenty of room once inside. It's often busy so a booking can be a good idea here.

No separate Vegan menu here but they will happily replace standard Mozz with vegan cheese on any of their woodfired pizza options if you ask. I ordered the (already vegan) garlic bread and then the 'funghi' (mushroom) pizza...both delicious!

Great service and a nice atmosphere to dine in. Good authentic Italian pizza. Moderate pricing but bring your appetite!

Updated from previous review on 2017-10-03

Pros: Great service. , Delicious, hot, authentic Italian pizza!

Cons: Only one vegan dessert

Authentic pizza with vegan cheese - Edit

Pizza base was just right, authentic and tasty. You can have almost any pizza with vegan cheese. And our waitress was wonderful, when I ordered a pizza, he recommended margarita with extra olives and chili oil, so I got just what I wanted, but paid less. Restaurant is also very beautiful.

Delicious garlic bread - Edit

While not on the menu, Cincin has vegan cheese which you can swap on one of their veg pizzas. Highly recommend the garlic bread - pizza base with tomato, garlic and rock salt, delicious.

limited but delicious - Edit

As per the description, even though it's not listed on the menu they do have vegan cheese. The standard vegan pizza is eggplant, olive, and mushroom. They can make alterations though. The pizza was DELICIOUS which for me made up for the lack of choice. Very attentive staff and a nice ambiance.

Pros: well made food

Cons: very limited options for vegans.
