One vegan option

The pizza slice had a good size and was tasty. I ate 2 slices and was full afterwards.
Only one option is currently available.
Music was very loud and only a few places to sit.
Staff was friendly.

Boring and overpriced

I ordered a slice of the vegan pizza which consists of only vegan cheese. No toppings other than cheese. The slice was big, but the taste was bland and boring, so the size of the slice did not create much value for me. In addition, I paid around 8 USD for a single slice (nearly the same price as close to a whole pizza at other places with more toppings than just vegan cheese). The selection of vegan pizzas only costisted of, at least to my observations, that one slice of the vegan pizza. I waited several minutes to get my two ordered slices as the place was overcrowded and loud. The staff was not too friendly neither. I don't think we exchanged eye contact once.

Kinda dry

This wasn’t terrible but it tasted pretty dry and was very overpriced. I think it was about 8 dollars per slice. With just cheese.

Quick pizza

Pizza by the slice with vegan slices available but €2 more than other slices. If you go at rush hour they will not make the vegan calzone for you. Good quick stop

Ok. Not good value

Pizza is nice. Service is mediocre. No atmosphere or seating. Cannot add pizza toppings and is €6.50 per slice. Not worth the cost unless you’re wasted and starving

Nice option

I was a bit sceptic when I saw the pre-made pizzas 🍕 and how they simply heat them up on the oven. But I was very surprised that the vegan 🌱 slice tasted really good especially with their home made cashew ricotta. Not the greatest vegan pizza I ever had but a very lovely choice to enjoy. I would eat it again.

Pros: Tasty cheese , Great option , Huge slice

Cons: A bit pricy , Very busy at night

Great pizza at night

I went there to try their vegan pepperoni pizza but it turns out that currently they have only one vegan option with vegan ricotta. The pizza was good and the slice just huge. Maybe slightly too expensive for the quality (6 euro per slice), but I enjoyed the pizza and would recommend it to everyone.

Decent pizza

Not the best pizza I've ever had but it was decent for a quick hot lunch or snack. Ask for the vegan pizza because it's not always on display but they keep it separately. They have additional toppings like nutritional yeast with chili and oregano. The pizza isn't very flavourful without it.

Pros: Quick and easy

Cons: Only one vegan option

Great American style pizzeria in town

I love difontaines, perfect for when I'm in the mood for a big slice of rich cheesy pizza. The staff are very friendly and good craic at night time when they blast tunes too. They have also recently added a new vegan slice!

Pros: Luscious vegan pizza , Friendly staff, Will custom add toppings if you order a full pizza

Cons: Not a con, would like to see more vegan options

Good American style pizza

I really like the vegan slice, although as the base is quite thick it may not be to everyone’s taste. The vegan cheese is delicious, but it would be nice if they had some more vegan options. I’ve found that the slices don’t travel that well - it’s not the best option to order for delivery, possibly because the slices aren’t freshly made to order.

Pros: Vegan cheese

Cons: Not a lot of choice

Pricey but worth it

Yes its more expensive than the rest of the menu (that vegan tax gets you when you least expect it) but there's one reason this is worth it - the 'ricotta'. Never had anything like it except at a pizza joint in New York. Its smooth, creamy and definitely welcomed should you do what I did and eat the pizza right out the oven and burn your mouth! You are also getting a decent if not good deal given the size if you order a whole pizza.

Pros: Friendly staff, Tasty pizza

Cons: Pricey

Great pizza slice, vegan chess on it was really tasty. Big slice but even at that €5.50 is pretty expensive for one pizza slice. Good if you're looking for something quick and tasty, would definitely recommend trying it at least once.

Cons: Expensive

Vegan pizza

This is hands down the best pizza I have ever tasted outside of the US. While a bit salty, it is so delicious. The price point is just right for a quick lunch or snack.

Pros: Delicious pizza

Cons: Little seating

Great stop for a slice of pizza late in the night. Guys, please make more vegan pizzas options. I am a huge fan of yours and the only one and one vegan pizza available in the menu.

Tasty but Pricey

The vegan pizza slice here is decent but a little overrated by some people in my opinion. It's nice that the place opens late so you can pop in for a slice but at €5.50 a slice it's pretty expensive. The only vegan slice you can get is cheese, it would be nice to have one with other veg toppings. One bonus is that you can sprinkle on extra herbs and garlic after you get your slice. The place is designed for eating a slice of pizza quickly with limited seating or for take away.

Pros: Vegan pizza, Open late

Cons: Expensive, Only one option
