First Review by Ricardo

amazing ! - Edit

The best place in Paris to eat vegan food. The waiter was so nice to us, and told us what the meny was in english.
If you want you can get a 3 course, but we only had the main dish. Still amazing.
Oh, and they also have a organic wine meny

Great little spot, tasty food and friendly service - Edit

Charming spot with an épicerie selling a few vegan products. The menu was entirely vegan on the day I went. Interesting chestnut flour blinis layered with hummus and spinach as a starter, a great burger as a main (the portions are very generous for the main courses) - actually, probably the best vegan burger I had so far, and a delicious mousse au chocolat with raspberry coulis - not too sweet and airy,

Pros: Charming decor, Casual dishes but interesting flavors, Fair priced

Flavorful and rich - Edit

This spot is incredibly delicious! Traditional Italian dishes are made to order with the care of a skilled and passionate chef. Most anything on the menu can be made vegan. The pesto pasta dish was more flavorful than any on our recent trip to Liguria- and without the cheese! Very fresh with al dente pasta. The risotto was full bodied and well-developed, and the hearty vegetable and legume plate was incredibly satisfying. Oh, and the desserts!! Both the tiramisu and the mouse were divine! If you enjoy Italian food, don't miss this place! They also source locally and organically!!

Pros: outdoor seating, organic

Pleasant place but food lacks original flavours - Edit

I totally agree with Ricardo's review. I went for dinner and had a celeriac soup that was quite good. Then, I ordered pasta with walnut sauce but the sauce was minimum and there was no walnut pieces that would have added something. For 14 euros, I expected something more creamy and more original than a rather simple pasta dish. However, the dessert (a chocolate mousse) was very good. To summarize, the place is very pleasant and the staff and cooker are very friendly but the food is a bit expensive for what you get in terms of creativity and portions.

Pros: very vegan-friendly, good desserts, friendly staff, pleasant place

Cons: small portion, a little pricey, simple dishes

IVLOtoyou 27 Apr 2016 - thank you Jon for your revue.You should consider that IVLO is a organic restaurant so the price is justified from this quality of products.

Very vegan-friendly but slightly overpriced - Edit

Because I couldn't find a menu either in their Facebook page or in their website, I was a little unsure of how vegan-friendly they were; but actually, most of the plates are vegan, so that was a relief.

The service was very attentive and welcoming.
The atmosphere was also quite alright.

Regarding the food, I felt it was a bit overpriced for what you get, in terms of creativity of the dishes and the size of the portions.
The taste was good, but unfortunately it's not something that would make me come back anytime soon.

I think they could do better if they would add to their menu a little more elaborated dishes like lasagnas, cannellonis, risottos, and also provide something else as desserts instead of the "mousse au chocolat" or the "gateaux au chocolat" which was a fairly simple chocolate pound cake.

Perhaps they do prepare better dishes and I was just unlucky with today's options; but not being able to check their menu online beforehand is definitely a minus (especially if they change it frequently).

In summary, there are just much better options in Paris for eating vegan food. And some of them not too far from where they are.

Pros: many vegan dishes, friendly staff

Cons: a bit overpriced, lack of creative dishes
