Pizza only okay

We had a vegan pizza here. It was okay, but we had better pizza.
The toilets don't have a proper seat (which is unfortunately the case in most places in Sorrento)

Vegan - worth the wait!!

We got lucky and manage to get a table straight away but the night before we saw a massive queue to get in. A lot of places in the area had really long queues but they are worth the wait. They have a set vegan menu but you can add vegan ham to anything and also change to vegan cheese so the full menu can be veganised. The portion sizes are big and reasonably priced.
We went back a second time and if I was even in Sorrento again, this is the first place I would go to!!

Came here on a rainy night and was greeted by a very friendly and happy team. There is an extensive separate vegan menu: you’ll not have to ask for any adaptations. Many choices of pastas, salads and pizzas. Included in some pizzas are option of vegan cheese and vegan ‘meats’. Drinks were very reasonably priced. I had the ‘Buckingham Palace’ pizza which was delicious (and very large). Because I was able to take leftovers home (box provided, no problems) I was able to try the vegan cheesecake with berries: delicious!!! Creamy and tastes like a non vegan chilled cheesecake. Thanks to your team; you know how to make vegans feel welcome.

Pros: Hospitality! , Vegan cheeses and meats on pizzas , Vegan desserts!!!!

Lots of choice but not all good

You are not short of vegan options here, however I did not enjoy the vegan cheese. It was almost like marshmallows somehow. I would have liked to order desert but the prices listed for the vegan desserts were more than the regular ones even though they are the same thing, I was pretty put off by this. I would recommend for the choice but wouldn’t order the vegan cheese.

Pros: Options

Cons: Too salty

I absolutely loved this spot once I browsed the menu and my pizza was delivered. I have found the place in Sorrento that has made all of my vegan dreams come true. I ordered the Il Sombrero pizza in the shape of a heart. All of the ingredients were fresh and tasty. I was not a fan of the pizza with the purple potatoes spread on it and the pesto pasta was not tasty at all. I took one bite and I never took another bite. We returned with a local and she had the carbonara pasta (not vegan) and she had the same complaint as I did, too salty and her words were that “it’s disgusting”. The vegan cheesecake with berries was very good. My only complaint is that the cheesecake serving was very small, but that may be just the greedy part of me. Definitely visit here for a variety of vegan options.

Świetnie oznaczone wegańskie opcje!

Jedliśmy wegańską pizzę i lasagne. Jedzenie było po prostu dobre.
Ogromny plus natomiast za oznaczenia w menu, łatwo znaleźć wegańskie opcje.
Wszystkie restauracje powinny mieć tak wyglądające menu!

I was thankful for this place

I have been in Italy, variety of different places and realized how very difficult it is to be vegan. Some places have no clue what vegan is, think vegetarian is vegan. This place didn’t just have spaghetti with tomato sauce or awful pasta with a few slivers of tofu, it actually had a vegan menu! Not sure if they changed things recently with the reviews I was reading. But they have vegan desserts too! I had the vegan lasagna and Nutella cheesecake. So good! Would definitely recommend.

Very nice vegan pizza!

Great place in Sorrento with many vegan options. They offer a few vegan pizzas, focaccia, and even vegan desserts.

We tried a vegan pizza with vegan cheese and vegan ham and it was really nice.

100% recommended.

The best place for vegan options in Sorrento

There is a separate section within the menu for vegans and the other menu clearly labels allergies/where items can be veganised

We ended up visiting Frankie’s several times as it is the best restaurant for choice (and vegan dessert options)

The food was tasty and the portions were large. Sometimes there is a large queue (we usually arrived early to avoid this).

I took a pizza and a cheesecake... both amazing..
They are now using the new brand 'dream farm' for the vegan mozzarella and it's FANTASTIC.
I'll come back if I can.

We were really excited and looking forward to trying Frankies. My gf tried to order vegan pasta dish off the menu to be told they are currently not offering those dishes.... we both decided to order the vegan burger.
Sadly it was possibly the worst vegan dish I've ever had at a restaurant. The burger was tasteless and I'm unsure what it was made of, there was no sauce or mayo with the burger so very dry inside a pizza ciabatta.

I don't like being nasty about places but I don't want others to pay good money and be disappointed also

Real meat on pizza

Ordered two vegan pizzas and one came out with real prosciutto and cheese (easy to see compared to the other pizza). We asked the waiter and he was nonchalant and said it just ‘looked’ real. We insisted again and went to the chef, who confirmed it was real meat. Replacement was provided but no offer of refund or sincere apology.

Very popular spot with vegan and gf options

The salad was great! They marinated their tofu to make a vegan take on the Greek feta salad. They had a few vegan items (ex 2 explicitly vegan pizzas) and were happy to veganise other menu items. If someone is gf in the group, they have lots of gf options too which is nice. Few seats in the front of you fancy people watching in the alley, and seating inside too.

Fyi - there is spend minimum for the table and a seat charge - might throw a spanner if you’re dining alone for lunch.

Pros: Vegan options, Customisable , Great salad

Cons: Pizza was a bit dry, it wasn’t the biggest flav , Mad busy—get there early/reserve, See note about min. spend

Was recommended to go here from Happy cow. Def worth a visit. Go early because a queue forms fast.
The focaccia with rosemary is divine and then my pizza arrived they have a separate vegan section for pizza and desserts. This place is a must visit if you are in Sorrento.

Pros: Delicious food , Fantastic staff , Again- the food!!!!

Cons: Can be queuing for a while but worth the wait

Great vegan options

After coming here and trying the pizza we knew we would come back. The flavours were fantastic and unable to fault the place! Only not 5 stars because happy cow won’t allow due to restrictions

So nice I ate there twice

Like other reviewers have said, Frankie and his wife are friendly, welcoming and serve incredible vegan options. I had the purple potato pizza and vegan Greek salad. The pizza was perfect and the salad could have used some acid but was otherwise good. They also have signature beers they brew which my fellow diners enjoyed. The experience was so great we came back a second time for take out on our last night in Sorrento. I wouldn't recommended the vegan cutlets (at least not for takeout as they were dry) but the gnocchi is incredible!

Good pizza

Ordered both vegan pizzas and they were good quality albeit with a few strange ingredients but I’m always willing to try something new. We also ordered the cheesecake and it was on the smaller side but very rich. I would definitely recommend making it a point to eat here as they have good vegan dinner and dessert options.

Amazing options and friendly staff

I had heard lots about Frankie’s before I visited Sorrento so it was on my list! They had lots of vegan options in here from pasta and pizza, to paninis and deserts. I think this was one of the only places in the area to offer vegan deserts that wasn’t sorbet! The staff in here are so lovely and knowledgable on veganism too - I went for the violife, tomato and basil gnocchi and it was delicious, tasted just like burrata 😍 would have definitely visited again if I had stayed longer - please note that it can get really busy here and the business is closed on Tuesdays for rest day, I don’t think Google has been updated!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Delicious food , Vegan desert menu

Cons: Only two outside tables

Lots of vegan options!

The queue was long, but fast moving and we were seated within 10 minutes or so.

I had the walnut pesto and mushroom gnocchi which was a touch on the oily side but the gnocchi was perfectly cooked. I would definitely return for a pizza if I had time whilst I was in Sorrento!

My only disappointment was that they’d run out of vegan crème brûlée (which was one of my fave desserts when I was omni). I would definitely recommend if you want a good selection of vegan options.

Pros: Good price , Friendly staff, Lots of vegan options

Cons: Can’t prebook so have to queue, The toilet could do with a renovation

One of the best vegan options in Sorrento

Went here multiple times, the pizza is great!

Good cheap local wine!

Friendly service, easy to communicate in English.

The hidden gem for us was the vegan chocolate hazelnut cheesecake, amazing!

Very popular place, loud and cramped inside but a great place to get some vegan food!

Not sure why I can't give this place 5 stars, since this is one of the only places in sorrento with dedicated clearly labeled vegan options.

Great lunch

Frankie’s had many vegan options that were clearly labeled. My daughter and I had gnocchi (two different kinds) and my husband veganized vegetable focaccia. We sat upstairs in the air conditioning, which was a welcome break from the heat. Nice little place to eat while you’re wandering around Sorrento.
