Amazing vegan food, traditional Italian dishes, rawfood & desserts - Edit

Finding traditional dishes with plant based options while traveling is possible! Had this amazing Italian eggplant pizza made with rice based mozzarella cheese on a crunchy crust with fresh tomato sauce from La Colubrina in Milan, Italy. Chef Consuelo is a full vegan herself inventing amazing dishes comme antipasti, primi piatto, segundi piatto and dolce with an Italian plant based twist.

Pros: Customer Service, Quality of Food, Lots of vegan options

Traditional Italian food - Edit

After ten days in various parts of Italy and not too much to eat, this place was a really welcome surprise. "Vegan options" really meant that (or vegetarian as I prefer to call it when it doesn't contain dairy nor egg ) and not only two options: their menu includes three pages of vegan dishes of which a few are raw. And they use the vegan symbol 🌱 for their raw options.
I had the home made ravioli integrali stuffed with eggplant and cassava. Even though I couldn't feel the taste of stuffing the test was good. Unfortunately it didn't look very tempting. I also had the green salad with tomatoes and cucumber which was really good and it was quite a generous portion. Unfortunately we didn't have time to try any of the desserts. The cover/coperto was 2€/pp and didn't include bread. Prices was reasonable since the pasta was home made. Have had regular factory made spaghetti with canned tomato sauce for more than the 9,5€ La Colubrina charge.

Overall I have to say it was nice to sit down and have an traditional (Italian) meal and not again be referred to the regular vegan fast food such as burgers, wraps and pizza. So tired of that.

Pros: Traditional Italian food - not fast food, 3 pages of vegetarian options (no dairy, no egg)

Cons: A Primi Piatti sized Secondi Piatti

Nicest staff, best food, and perfect place to bring meat eaters - Edit

The chef at this restaurant is vegan, so she knows how to cook amazing vegan food. We've been here twice, and although the staff doesn't speak very great english, they do try their best. The chef saw that we ordered vegan food and sent us a couple slices of pizza to try that had house made rice cheese on it, which was outstanding. They also had things to eat for our entire family, who are meat eaters. I would come here any time I stopped in Milan.

Pros: Delicious pizza!, So many vegan options, amazing staff

Traditional Lombard dishes turned vegan - Edit

I have been here twice and was pretty satisfied both times. What I like about this restaurant is the old-Milan feeling and the staff's kindness. They offer a good choice of vegan dishes, also gluten-free, and some typical Milanese recipes turned vegan. Last time we went there we had sorghum and rice mozzarella balls, followed by a fancy kidney bean burger with porcini mushrooms, baked potatoes and vegetable brunoise and an interesting sunflower seed burger. Another dish I liked was the pumpkin and amaretto cookie gnocchi, a typical dish from Mantua turned vegan, which proved to be amazing. They also offer quite a good selection of vegan pizzas.

Pros: traditional Lombard dishes turned vegan, good selection of gluten-free dishes, traditional Italian trattoria

Cons: a bit expensive

mixed feelings - Edit

It is confusing. They have a wide selection of vegan dishes and all the sweets are vegan but they also have some traditional dishes.
The place has been renewed but not completely so it is kind of a hybrid between an old trattoria and a modern restaurant.
It is quite dark and stifling and not aesthetically pleasing.
The same can be said for the food.
It has some potential but tends too the greasy side and lack finesse.
Despite the restaurant-quality prices.
2 € for the service with just four or five bits of bread is too much. The service itself is kind but quite slow.
The vegan desserts are good. Still, they are overpriced for 7 €.
Everything could be improved.

Pros: good desserts

Cons: slow service, overpriced , greasy

Great vegan options. - Edit

Really enjoyed my visit to Colubrina. Had the teff crepes (it's a small-ish portion) and shared a pizza with grilled vegetables and rice mozzarella. Both really nice. Lots of vegan dessert options. Very good. The restaurant's non veg options were good according to my bf who is not a vegan. The ambience is nice, good service (it was a busy night so a bit slow), would go back if visiting Milan again.

La Colubrina offre un ricco menu vegan. Serve anche piatti di cucina tradizionale ma il pezzo forte sono i deliziosi piatti vegani, comprese le pizze.
tutta l'offerta vegan è ben segnalata nel menu (comprese le birre) e molti piatti sono gluten frew.
tutti i dolci sono vegan e fatti in casa.
Da provare assolutamente!

Pros: Pizze vegane, piatti molto gustosi e leggeri

Cons: A volte il servizio può essere un po' lento ma val

Don't Miss!!! - Edit

We went here our first night in Milan, and there was a fundraiser on for the local ARA group, but they still managed to fit us in....and the food was amazing.
We went back the next night to get a take away pizza (the rice mozzarella is soooooo good!!) and the owners, who are vegan chefs themselves were so kind to us, they slipped in a blueberry croissant that we didn't notice until we arrived back to our hotel.
If you don't go here, you are really missing out!!

Very pleasant experience - Edit

La Colubrina is one of those cosy Italian restaurants where you feel very welcomed and relaxed. Perfect spot for a dinner with friends. Most of the menu is vegan which is fantastic! The food is very homemade-style and portions big enough. The selection of vegan cakes is also great, it's the only place in Milan that I found that has vegan tiramisu!

Uno dei miei posti preferiti - Edit

Il menù cambia in base alla stagione. Il ristorante è prevalentemente vegano con alcuni piatti onnivori per i clienti non veg.

I miei piatti preferiti in questo periodo sono il Winter Burger (con la zucca!) ed i pizzoccheri :P

Menzione particolare per i dolci, in particolare cheese cake al cioccolato e zuccotto... ma anche il tiramisù!

Magnifico Vegan Gnocchi! - Edit

The vegan handmade pumpkin and potato gnocchi with zucchini was truly magnifico and memorable. The owner of this cozy and friendly cafe is vegan and her mother is not so they join forces to collaborate on a menu that has many vegan options. The raw veggie salad included thin slices of carrot, apples and turnips and onions was also nice and refreshing.

Average Pizza - Edit

We ordered two different vegetarian pizzas. While they were good, they were just average in flavor. Perhaps their vegan pizza or other menu items are better.

Pros: Vegan Options

Cons: Slow Service

Great food and atmosphere - Edit

This is a really nice restaurant and the staff were really friendly and welcoming. The vegan dishes are clearly marked and there's lots of choice too! We've tried the pizzas, pancakes and also pasta dishes. They're very tasty and well priced. A big mention should go to the desserts: these were really fantastic and nicely presented!

Pros: Desserts, Great service, Price

Exquisite Vegan Italian Cuisine - Edit

La Colubrina is a fascinating old fashioned restaurant born as traditional one, today it offers vegan dishes very tasty.
Franca and Consuelo, the chefs, created a menu that combines together vegan cuisine with traditional Italian cuisine, crossing "il Bel Paese" and picking up in every Italian region a special traditional dish, completely renewed as vegan. You can try a typical cotoletta, made with beans, crunchy and tasty, the juicy summer parmigiana made with delicate veggies and vegan cheese, fabulous basil pesto risotto with mushrooms and you can continue to eat over and over.... It is all soooo good!!
You absolutely must try the vegan tiramisu, creamy and delicate, and, if you are hungry but it is not dinner time yet, an apericena (typically Milanese) why not? It is amazing, a carousel of special Italian-fusion appetizers from bruschetta to falafels.
At Colubrina's you are at home.
Updated from previous review on Friday September 19, 2014

Pros: real italian vegan cuisine , call in advance for vegan dishes, good brunch, aperitif
