Best (vegan) Italian restaurant by far

My all-time favourite Italian restaurant! The lasagne and gnocchi are standouts, as is the cheesecake. Staff are super friendly, there’s often a line out the door though.

Great vegan pizza

It's great. It's yummy. But it's not the best. We had the Atlantic pizza and it was great, the sauce was amazing, and although it's been a long time since I've had seafood pizza this one really reminded me of true seafood pizzas.

The special that we had was tomato base pizza with eggplant and mushrooms and it was just fine. No hook, no zing.

When I come back and have more, and if pizzas taste as great as Atlantica then I will change my rating to 5 star!

Probably the best vegan pizza in Sydney

Never disappointed with Gigi’s, they have so many pizzas, pastas, sides and desserts, both veggie based and faux meat/cheese based. Can be a bit pricy for a few courses but it’s well worth it for a nice dinner!

Pros: Variety , Authentic but vegan

Cons: Can be a bit pricy

Vegan Wood-Fired Pizzas

Known for their vegan wood-fired pizzas! I enjoyed the pizza I ordered, which contained minimal processed ingredients (except for vegan cheese) yet tasted very flavourful. The tiramisu dessert was good too. I did find the lighting rather dim, and it got quite noisy with people trying to talk over the loud music; I understand it's subjective and some people might like this ambience though. This is a populary eatery that draws a crowd/queue; reservations not accepted. Note that they are a cashless eatery, and 10% surcharge is applied on public holidays. Few minutes' walk from Newtown Station.

we need more vegan pizza like this

Gigi is an Italian restaurant specializing in vegan pizza but also offering a couple of other dishes including pasta and antipasti.

They have pizza and calzone with classic toppings/fillings as well as unconventional toppings/fillings featuring e.g. cauliflower, parsley, potato and radicchio.

Overall, I really liked the pizza and wish there was a vegan pizzeria like this in my city! The pizza dough is thin and lightly crispy at the edges. Also the plant-based cheese was amazing - even my non-vegan friends enjoyed the pizza here!

Service is somewhat automated: You order and pay in advance via an app. Staff will then bring the food and drinks to your table.

Because this restaurant is quite popular, it is normally very crowded and you may need to stand in line to get a table!

*Chef's Kiss* Italian Food

No wonder this is one of the top rated vegan restaurants in Sydney! The food, the atmosphere, everything is amazing!
We ordered Arancini, Carciofi e Funghi, and Cannoli, and it was all excellent!
I only wish that we could have stayed longer in Sydney, so that I could try more of the different dishes on the menu!

Had the pizza with mushrooms/artichokes/eggplant and mmmm. So good. I also tried my boyfriends spinach calzone and it was delicious. Expensive but so delicious if willing to splurge.

On uber eats

Had a bit of a day so ordered this to my hotel. Was so glad to see gluten free gnocchi on the menu. Got the pesto gnocchi, and some potato almond bites. Also got the arancini but didn’t like it - it was too meaty textured for me. Came in compostable packaging, which was great!

My first re visit since last Nov. Didn't disappoint we shared an asparagante pizza was my fav had delicious tomato puree, asparagus spears and a cauliflower, artichoke topped with melted cheese. After we indulged on a tiramasu was delicious.
Had two lagers on tap. $79. The food and service was excellent. Place was packed.
Certainly worth a visit or two.
Revisited with a carni friend, he loved the pizza and I had the calzone washed down with Henry. Again Gigis the best pizza diner in Sydney.

Insanely good!

Pros: Fully vegan menu, Delicious food, Excellent service & atmosphere

Great vegan Italian

Really good Italian food which is a bit of struggle to find as a vegan. The staff were very friendly, special thanks to the lovely lady who got me a shot of coffee even though it’s not on their menu. We will be back.

The best Italian restaurant outside Italy

The food at this place is some of the best I’ve ever had. The pizza was probably the best pizza I’ve ever had, including anywhere in Italy. I had the beyond sausage pizza and we also had the lasagna. Would 100% recommend this place!

Great vegan pizzeria

We enjoyed a Salsiccia e Broccoli pizza and the Rucola salad. Both were tasty and very nice, although I prefer my pizza a little thicker.
The food was prompt and the service was friendly, although ordering from an app does detract from the experience.

Pros: Vegan, Nice food, Friendly staff

Cons: It was a little expensive

Stunning authentic pizzaria

Really outstanding place.

Food was filling and packed with favour.

Our croquettes to start were kinda basic mashed potato balls with a roasted almonds coating that confused me.

The pesto gnocchi was awesome, filling delicate and will make you go "vegan? Really?"

Our pizza the "Melanzane" with added beyond sausage was so damn good. The perfect italian meal.

The server were polite and welcoming however there was not real "service" or waiting offered as it was all QR code with a host and a food bus person.

QR codes are killing the hospitality customer

Pros: All the plantbased options, The melanzane pizza, Spacious and cool

Cons: Almond croquettes were "confused"

One of the best vegan pizzas I’ve ever had. Couldn’t fault anything we had, this place would have omnis fooled. First time finding vegan arancini which was delicious. Tiramisu and cannoli for dessert were next level and a must try!!!
