there is no longer vegan menu

the waiter told us there was no vegan menu, but we had bruschetta which was amazing. the only vegan option they had available was pasta al pomodoro which isnt on the menu. it was the best sauce ive had in italy yet. they served mostly meat options

Pros: pasta, bruschetta, limoncello

Cons: no vegan menu

Great option if you want a restaurant with both vegan and meat options.
I ordered the vegetable torte and a small salad and it was fresh and filling, but not anything special.

Vegan menu

Fantastic to find a vegan menu! And the brocolli gnocchi was lovely, I'd recommend it! We also had the tempura style vegetables which were tasty. But the gnocchi was the more filling/satisfying of the two dishes.

Dog friendly

Nice vegan menu and restaurant vibes.

First up, the correct name of this restaurant is ‘La Patatina a San Giacomo’. DO NOT confuse this restaurant with another with called ‘La Patatina A San Polo’ which offers zero vegan options which we almost did and what I assume some of the reviewers below did.

We sat in the covered garden area in the back which was super cute. My 10 month old and I shared the broccoli gnocchi and I also had the tempura style vegetables that came with a lovely squash cream.

A bit far from the center but worth visiting!

High end vibe, but for a reasonable price. They have a separate vegan menu with 5 dishes. I had the potatoes broccoli gnocchi which was delicious. They also have a menu featuring only dishes with porchini mushrooms, and they were very accommodating and veganizes a dish there for me (salad). We had wine and it's was a really good dinner. Highly recommend!

Good quality choices

I took some gnocchi with brocoli and nuts.
The plate looked quite small but it was finally enough for me. It was delicious.

OK food in a nice setting, a bit upscale

The food was good, even if the vegan options were limited. The restaurant has a few tables outside on the square and in the courtyard in the back. I probably wouldn't do a big detour to get there again, but a good choice if staying nearby and wanting a nice dinner.

They’re trying…but not too hard

Lots of vegan options here - apparently they’ve had a vegan menu for about 4 years - but there’s not much creativity or love in the food.

We had the gnocchi and the vegetable “tart” - which was just baked vegetables in the shape of a tart - no pastry. They were both edible but basic and instantly forgettable.

With a little bit of effort this place could be amazing - but they don’t seem to want to make that effort

On the plus side, sitting and eating outside on the square in the summer night air is beautiful!

Overpriced and underwhelming, but technically fine?

We were happy to find a place that has a dedicated vegan menu- 5 items in total. All just...vegetables. If you're into smaller portions for a bigger price and want literally zero protein, it's perfectly good. It was fine. The food tasted great actually, just not what I'd hoped for (especially to still be hungry afterwards). We had the "fried vegan crispy vegetables with seasonal cream" which was a bowl full of zucchini and carrot tempura with maybe 2 Tbs of cashew cream underneath them, and then "vegetables rainbow baked pie with pistachio extract" which was really delicious (think shepherd's pie, upside down- mashed potatoes, carrots, peppers, etc. Great, small, probably won't go back.

We both had the gnocchi and it was just amazing. Side of grilled vegetables also good. Staff understood importance of the vegan restriction and made sure to accommodate. We are there for lunch but would be a better dinner option.

Pros: Delicious, Staff understands vegan option, Great atmosphere outdoors

Great dedicated vegan menu section

Nice staff, about 6 decent choices for vegan mains. Tried the gnocchi with broccoli and walnuts which was very tasty- if anything the portion could have been slightly bigger given it was a main, and for the price. Would still recommend it as the food was good, but our bill was €30 ish each for 1 dish and glass of wine.

Pros: Easy to see which dishes are vegan, English explanations of Italian names, Fresh and beautifully presented

Cons: Could be better value

Overpriced, food not great

Was looking for a healthier alternative to pizza and pasta, which this restaurant definitely provided.
However, my rainbow pie was cold inside, portion sizes were very small and the prices are quite high (28 euros bill for one person)

Pros: Separate vegan menu with decent options , Friendly staff

Cons: Small portions, High service charge (4 euros), Food wasn't really good

Fancy restaurant with a small vegan menu

Fancy restaurant with a small vegan menu. The dishes are very well presented and cooked, the ingredient quality is high. I am not giving 4 stars because they do not offer vegan desserts (apart from a fruit salad) and because the service was a bit slow. Nevertheless the place is beautiful and I recommend eating in the inner courtyard. We were served a white polenta with caponata appetiser, and then I had a nice gnocchi dish made with walnut cream and broccoli. Both the veggie salad and the fruit salad were fresh and full of colours.

Pros: A separate vegan menu, Very fresh ingredients , Nicely presented dishes

Cons: No specific vegan desserts , Service a bit slow
