Amazing Pizza!

Really delicious pizza! Vegan options available. The vegan cheese is really good! If you are vegan, it’s important to note that you’ll want to get the whole wheat crust as their regular pizza dough has eggs and milk in it. The servers were also super nice! Great stop for lunch or dinner😊🍕

Pros: Delicious vegan cheese , Friendly staff

Vegan options

A number of pizza options. I chose the Primavera pizza and substituted mozzarella for vegan cheese. Delicious. My husband is vegetarian and had the Romano pizza customized with mushrooms and chopped tomatoes instead of sauce, plus chopped garlic. He loved it. Service was perfect as usual. Will be back.

Pros: Vegan options by substituting vegan cheese, Tables allowed for social distancing, Fast and professional service

Good selection of vegan pizzas

Non-vegan pizzeria with a good selection of pizzas without animal products. Most options are a combination of veggies such as olives, mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, artichokes, spinach, etc. There's one with yves veggie peperroni and one with tofu (my favorite). The pizza's crust has a good thickness which is sort of satisfying for one person.

Don’t eat there!

After reading these reviews we decided to give it a try because we work 3 minutes away from this restaurant. We called to order the “montreale” pizza and asked to veganize it. They had vegan pepperoni and cheese, so we were all excited to try their pizzas... Not. They’re not edible. It was simply disgusting. The dough was gluey and the cheese was old. We just thrown 60$ in the garbage. Do yourself a favour and don’t eat there.

Pros: Staff was friendly on the phone

Cons: Expensive , No edible

Impressive vegan options

This place had really impressive vegan options for a non-vegan pizza place. They had a vegan crust option, vegan cheese, and even vegan pepperoni (ask for it as I didn’t see it on the menu). Pizza was flavorful and I actually enjoyed the cheese (I rarely enjoy vegan cheese on pizza). They even had a vegan chocolate cake for dessert!

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Good vegan cheese, Vegan pepperoni!

Cons: So so so crowded on a Saturday night

Excellent vegan pizza

This place is always full at lunchtime but their vegan pizza is worth the wait. I am difficult when it comes to vegan cheese but theirs is really good!

Very good and always full!

It's one of the rare places in Montreal offering vegan pizzas cooked in a wood fired oven! They're delicious and you can choose among many options: vegan cheese, bio crust, gluten free...
But you better be patient or book as there are always a lot of people who want to eat there!

Pros: many vegan options, wood fire oven, professional staff

WoW! Amazing pizza!

Best vegan pizza I ever ate. There’s a lot of vegetarian pizzas and we can choose the vegan cheese (Earth Island) and the vegan crust. I ate the pizza « La Bomba » it was sooooo good!

Pros: Many vegan options

Cons: Serves meat , Have to pay an extra 2$ to have the vegan crust
