Nice staff that tries

Honestly, it seems that they are removing all the vegan options from their menu. We had the coliflor and the artichoke. They were really good, I won't lie, it was well prepared.

The waitress was very careful making sure we would not get cheese in our order and replaced butter with olive oil. Sad part, the vegan pizza is out of their menu, they mentioned that they will remove some vegetarian options soon.
It means that this place should be removed from Happy Cow, since really, it is a place where you just have salad, coliflor and artichoke as an option.

P.S. they were not able to offer vegan bread, all their focaccia was premade with parmesan cheese on top. I feel that bread it's one of the easiest things to have for vegans, so that's when I realized that maybe it is not super suitable to be included in Happy Cow.

Pros: Nice staff that understand vegan, Nice ambiance

Cons: It is eliminating vegan and vegetarian options , Very little options , Not even vegan bread option

very nice restaurant but no real vegan options

The Restaurant is really pretty with a nice terrace to sit outside. I went here with my colleagues so that we all could find something to eat. Sadly, they did not have any vegan cheese or vegan options in general as stated here, but the waiter recommended me Pasta Aglio e Olio, which traditionally is vegan. Though I said I was vegan it came with Parmesan on it, but only four big chunks so I could easily remove it. My colleagues who are not vegan really liked their food though. The waiter was very very nice and fluent in English. All in all, I think you will be able to find something to eat, but without real options.

Pros: very nice service , beautiful location

Cons: no real vegan options
