Perfect - Edit

How good is this gem! 1-6-17
I only popped in for a snack because I was waiting for a friend to arrive at the airport. Sat at the bar alone. The bartender was super friendly and we exchanged conversations. I had - Arancini - Crocchette, both were entrees, both were fantastic! Minimum eptos is $30 unfortunately so I ordered the - Tiramisu, I was extremely full, I have never had Tiramisu but wow this was so delicious. I will be back on the 3-6-17 for dinner. Can't wait to try the pizza.

Pros: Staff, Food, Atmosphere

Cons: Minimum $30 on works

Best vegan pizza in the world !!

The menu is creative and the pizzas taste like you are in italy. Staff is welcoming and smilling.

they don't take reservation so must go early (6/7) or a bit late (around 9/9.30).

Nice with familly or friend, Gigi is always the best place to go for an italian experience.

Best Pizza outside of Italy - Edit

My favourite Pizza restaurant in Sydney! Everything is perfect! From the food, to the staff and the atmosphere. The line around the corner to get a table is a testament to the wonderful food they produce. Must try the crocchette's for started with the Panelle (chickpea chips). My fav pizza is the pumpkin and spinach calzone and the potato pizza!
The tiramisu is the best I have ever eaten!

Pros: 100% vegan, Amazing food, Best Tiramisu

Cons: Parking

A great place for a great meal - Edit

I ate here twice in a week. The food is excellent and the staff are fast and efficient - there's a very fast turnaround from ordering to being served your meal. They don't take bookings so on a Friday night we had to queue for 20 minutes.

Pros: First rate vegan pizza, Fast service, Good vibe

Cons: A little pricey

Can it get any better?? - Edit

Had dinner here last night and absolutely LOVED it. We started with the arancini, then two pizza off the specials and the tiramisu as dessert. Everything was phenomenal. I'm usually not much of a pizza person, but man, I could eat this every day. The tiramisu was also hands down the best I've ever had. Ever.

The place was hopping and the music was kind of loud, so it was pretty noisy inside. We were okay with that since we were too busy to talk anyway stuffing our faces, but I thought I'd just throw it out there.

Pros: excellent food

Cons: noisy

Best pizza And tiramisu i've ever had! - Edit

Honestly Gigi's has the best pizza I've ever had, vegan or otherwise. (And I have had a lot of pizza!)

My favourite is the blue 'cheese' and cauliflower pizza. The pumpkin calzone is also very nice! The tiramisu is a must try. It is absolutely delicious!

The queues for this place are a testament to how incredible the food is here. If you want a table straight away, arrive just before opening time! The pizza is very quick to come out of the oven whenever I have eaten here.

Prices can be a bit more expensive if you're use to eating at your local takeaway pizza joint, but I think it is worth it!

Pros: All vegan, Traditional pizza, Vegan tiramisu

Cons: Can be a bit of a wait for a table sometimes

Best Vegan Pizza I've Ever Had! - Edit

I used to think my native Chicago had the best vegan pizza in the world - but after eating at Gigi Pizzeria, I decided that Sydney has that distinction! :-) My vegan friend and I shared the Ripieno zucca e spincaci (pumpkin cream, sautéed pumpkin, spinach, swiss brown mushrooms & onion topped with roasted cherry tomatoes, thyme & rosemary with extra virgin olive oil), plus one other special pizza also featuring pumpkin. Absolutely delicious!! The restaurant is beautiful and lively, and the staff are super friendly and fun too.

Pros: Delicious pizza, Lovely environment, Friendly staff

Fabulous pizza - Edit

This place is all vegan and makes delicious pizza as well as tasty desserts and drinks (including cocktails). There always seems to be a queue to get in, but it moves pretty fast and it's been worth the wait each time I've been!

Dough to die for! - Edit

Sooooo good! Took my meat loving friend and she was pleasantly surprised by everything we got from the chickpea chips and rice ball starters to the mushroom and ripieno pizzas and the orange cake dessert - honestly with dough like that any flavour of pizza is sure to amaze. But the pumpkin cream with spinach was my favourite - just incredible flavours and texture and can I mention the pizza base/ dough again?? And such a cool set up and really friendly staff and love the way they present the pizzas etc!

Pros: the pizza dough + set up + staff

Cons: none

The best vegan pizza joint in existance - Edit

My favourite pizza in the world!

Authentic Italian pizza and 100% vegan (as of 2015).

Short walk from Newtown train station.

Must try:
- Funghi e Radicchio
- Cannoli (even better than some authentic, traditional cannoli I've tried).
- Any of the pizzas

Worth the queue which always tends to move quickly.

Pros: AMAZING food, Great location, Nice vibe

Cons: Queues on weekends

Amazing - Edit

As a pizza lover (started Notzarella in 2011) and also a lover of authentic experiences, I was floored by Gigi. I was in Sydney for one night, had no idea where to eat. I was starving - my weekend had been a small disaster. Gigi made it all worthwhile. I forget the specifics of what I ordered, but it was real food. The attention to detail in the place was heartwarming. Was almost crying at the bar, where I had to sit and eat it was so busy (Saturday night).

Pros: Amazing, Delicious, Wholefood

Cons: Busy (not really a bad thing).

worth the wait! - Edit

On a Friday night we queued for over an hour but it was well worth the wait for a good quality selection of all vegan pizzas and other Italian dishes. Very tasty toppings...shows that a pizza doesn't need cheese to make it complete!

Pros: Wide range of all vegan choices

Cons:

The best and authentic pizza place! - Edit

This is one of my favourite places in Sydney. Every pizza is so good and taste like Italy! It is very popular especially on weekends, so prepare to queue for a while. Althought the line goes very quickly, about in 5-15 minutes.

Distinctive vegan pizza - Edit

I was impressed when I read this restaurant had become completely vegan and ended up coming here twice on my last visit to Sydney. The first time, a Sunday evening, the place was very busy and we had to wait a few minutes to be seated, even though the restaurant is quite large. The staff were friendly and helpful. We ordered a garlic and oregano focaccia as an entree and regretted this because we just ended up eating a whole lot of what was effectively pizza base before our actual pizza and couldn't fit in dessert. The pizza was a Funghi e Radicchio and it was nice enough, but there was a bit too much radicchio and not enough funghi for my liking. We returned the following evening, which was quieter, and ordered a Pepperone Rosso. This was very nice, just a little spicy. Compared to conventional pizza chains, pizzas at this restaurant have a small amount of topping with a relatively large crust, and I'm not sure I like this, traditional as it may be. For dessert we had tiramisu and a scoop each of strawberry sorbet and lemon sorbet, which were all very nice. This will be on the list to visit whenever I'm in Sydney and I'll make my way through the pizza menu.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! - Edit

I've walked past Gigi's so many times and just thought "can't go there, it's a pizza joint." When they went vegan it was a revelation. Even my omni friends love it. So good, and so authentic, and none of the fake plastic cheeses you get on a lot of vegan pizzas — Gigi uses natural ingredients to create creamy textures and umami flavours. It's bloody brilliant!

Pros: Lovely food, Fast service, Friendly service

Cons: Sometimes lines, but the wait isn't long

Congratulations Gigi! To put your beliefs first at the risk of loss of profit is awesome. That can't be lost on the general public. Fabulous people, fabulous pizza.

Respect - Edit

This was long amongst Sydney's most celebrated pizza. They put their reputation on the line in order to live their new vegan convictions. The result: even more celebrated pizza.

Rather than simply use commonly available vegan substitutes for their existing pizzas they have created new masterpieces out of unlikely, traditional ingredients.

So many chefs like to think of themselves as something special, something revolutionary. Meh. *This* is revolutionary. If you want to see how vegan ingenuity can redefine traditional favourites then this is your stop. If you want to see how vegan products can be top of their class then come here. Gigi is a pioneer in the future of food.
