No vegan main dishes

We were disappointed since there was nothing vegan about this restaurant! Maybe they've changed the menu? We ordered pizza without cheese with some vegetables. Nothing special about the pizza. 12% service fee...

Delicious gluten-free vegan pizza and salat

The service was really nice and we joked a lot. The menu has vegan and vegetarian options and the staff is helping you to adjust the menu to your diet.
We had the Greek salad (me vegan and my mom with feta) and a gluten-free pizza as side dish. So far it has been the best gluten-free pizza in Venice and one of a few places to eat a good an fair portioned salad. We really liked it.

Pros: Vegan and veganizable options , Gluten-free options , Fair prices

Good pizza

The only vegan pizza by default is the marinara, it's good but like in many other places in Italy.
For two pizza, we waited quite a long time.

Not the best

Owner spoke great English and was very friendly (maybe too friendly if you are a solo female or group of females only, as saw him making a couple of females uncomfortable, as well as a mother with her two young daughters)

I ordered a vegetarian pizza and asked for it without the cheese, and had to specify twice that I did not want the mozzarella as the owner kept telling me it was great and I should try it. Only when my partner called him over the check that they knew I was vegan did he go back into the kitchen to tell them (and based on how much longer my food took than his, I presume they made it non-vegan and had to start again)

That said, when the food arrived it was delicious, prices are reasonable for the location but given the choice I probably wouldn't come back

Pros: English spoken by all staff

Cons: Make sure to specify you are vegan!

Good food but no vegan cheese

No vegan options. I had a “pizza” without cheese, only tomato sauce and vegetables on top. It was good (the tomato sauce was delicious), but other than that not wow. We also took a Greek salad with no cheese and it didn’t have dressing, so it was simply vegetables that I added olive oil and salt.

Pros: Very good service , Tomato sauce was delicious , Great location

Cons: No vegan cheese or alternative

La mejor pizza

Solo dos opciones veganas. Los ingredientes muy escasos pero tan buenos, que aún así ha pasado a ser la mejor pizza que he probado

Fantastic staff

Had a great meal here as the last stop on our journey. The staff was willing to make any pizza vegan by not adding cheese. We had a pizza with mushrooms. While it lacked substance, the crust was amazing, and finding vegan options in Venice is nearly impossible. Really happy to have found Gino’s for a quick bite.

Pros: Fun and accommodating staff, Delicious crust, Quick meal

Cons: No vegan cheese , No vegan menu

Flexible kitchen

We came here to have a light dinner, as our accommodation was nearby. When we asked the waiter for vegan options, he looked somehow ‘lost’ and ‘surprised’. Once we explained the concept, he was able to offer us two vegan pizzas from the menu (cheese free) and added extra vegetables to it (artichokes, olives and capers). The food was brilliant and the waiter really pleasant throughout the night. Good atmosphere, small restaurant founded in 1972 with lots of Italians eating here. Worth trying if you are around the area!

Pros: Flexible kitchen, 2 vegan pizzas from the menu

Cons: No vegan pasta (all egg-based)

Any of the veggie pizzas can be made vegan with no cheese, good choice of different pizzas. Quick and friendly service

Okay, but not much more...

I had the Pizza Siciliana (see the picture), and for 6,90€ ( 12% in gratuity) it’s hard to complain in Venice. That said: the crust was a bit disappointing, so if you can make it closer to the center there are other and better options available.

Good, close to station

Pizza tastes good - only con they put a ton of olive oil on there. It was all dripping in oil.

Okay place

They offer only one vegan pizza, that is the pizza marinara, but they also had some basic pasta dishes. The pizza marinara tasted quite good.

Cons: A bit expensive

Not many vegan options

Gino's didn't have many vegan options or any vegan cheese, but the pizza I had was very tasty. If you're in the area it's an okay option but not the most exciting for vegan food!

Pros: Tasty pizza

Cons: Not many vegan options

This is a good place to go if you are travelling with non-vegans. I ordered the marinara pizza and it was very good.

Marinara pizza near railway station

There are many restaurants in Venice that sell marinara pizza, but I went to Gino´s because it was mentioned here in Happy Cow. The pizza was okay, it had enough of garlic and oil on it. Good marinaras don´t need olives or other extras, if the dough and tomato sauce are great. Gino´s is located by a busy shopping street near the railway station, so it´s practical to go there when you arrive in Venice hungry.

People have recommended La Zucca restaurant a lot, but when I tried to go there in June, they had siesta during the day and told that they are fully booked for the next couple of days.

And anyway, when you visit Italy you need to test different marinara pizzas (though Napoli area has the best ones...).

Pros: Near railway station, Easy to find, Easy to order marinara because it´s vegan

Plenty of vegan options, but none are labelled

Gino's was the first place I ate during my short trip to Venice as it was close to my hotel; it was OK. It had two vegan pizzas on the menu, plus pasta and salad options.

I went for the Siciliana because it had no cheese but also had olives and capers. It smelt lovely, and the flavours were nice but it was extremely garlicky and a bit too crispy. It was the only pizza I ate during my visit so nothing to compare it with, but I've had much better in the UK so I'm assuming it's not the best Venice has to offer, however it's a pleasant place to visit for a quick bite to eat.

Pros: Location, Vegan pizza

Cons: Nothing marked as vegan, Not great quality

I knew ahead of time that being vegan in Venice would be a challenge, so my expectations were low. A simple pizza marinara & french fries kept me going. Decent. The place was very nice, inside & out, and it was around the corner from my hotel, so...

Pros: 1 vegan pizza, Friendly staff

Cons: Only 1 vegan item

Enjoyed the meal!

Gino's is colorful, much like the Venice Carnival. They have a collection of old ad's as their decor and worked very well for us!
The pizza was baked fresh, the staff was friendly and when asked for vegetarian food, they showed me a separate section on the menu with Lasagna etc and also a section of pizza's. I picked Pizza Marinara, Vegan pizza and I am certain that the staff could bake another pizza from the veg menu without cheese if told to. The pizza I ordered was super delicious, the best I ate in my week at Italy. The place was reasonable and the ambiance cozy.

Pros: Veg selection, Good food, Nice ambiance
