Go for cocktails and the second plate or pizza

I was diappointed by our choice, primary plate. I should have gone for pizza but was influenced by the older comments.
Pasta and gnocchi were okay but not as expected for homemade plate- minus the specific taste announced (like seaweed) and tiramisu had too much cream and not enough coffee. I would still recommend it for the amazing cocktails and probably pizza and second plates. Lady was very nice.

Pros: Vegan option for pizza, Best cocktails, Nice place and people

Cons: Expensive for the experience, Not tasty enough

The finger foods we started with were fun, as were the desserts, so would recommend these.

However, the pizzas we had were very disappointing. The dough wasn’t good and the bases were a real struggle to cut through they were so hard. The pizzas didn’t have tomato sauce on them - maybe this was our fault as it wasn’t stated on the menu but i thought that was standard so you’re not left with tough dough and a mass of cheese? We had the blue cheese (didn’t taste any) and pesto (not enough) pizzas.

Perhaps the other dishes are better

A top 10 restaurant so far in my life

Truthfully, I haven't been to this restaurant in about 2 years and I only went once. I remember the details quite clearly, though.

The restaurant was busy and we waited for a table, but the staff brought us inside because my fiancée was cold. They were very accommodating, but the food was beyond words.

Every dish was a shape I've never seen before, with ingredients that I couldn't seem to recognize half the time. Some restaurants try to hide lackluster flavor behind fancy presentations, but La Pepiniere does both at a high level.

When I return to Florence, I will make it a point to return to this restaurant, as it was like a dream. Even the cocktails were unique.

I'm just sad to find out the restaurant is no longer vegan, considering my experience was completely vegan last time, and it was a top 10 meal of my life, vegan or not.

Pros: The food was incredible and one of a kind, The drinks were uniquely flavored

Cons: Not a vegan restaurant anymore

Délicieux et vegan ! 💚

Vraiment délicieux ! En fait quasiment tout est vegan, il y a juste les pizzas qui se prennent avec mozzarella végane ou non, mais toute la carte est disponible en mode vegan ! 😍

Un tarif pas accessible à toutes les bourses, cependant la qualité des plats est là !
Leur carte est entièrement sur leur site web, vous pouvez regarder avant de vous y rendre 😊

Dans un cadre chaleureux, un très bon accueil, je recommande vivement !

Pros: Vegan, Très raffiné, Tiramisu et cheesecake végans !! 😍

Hit and miss

The starter (mushroom pate), tiramisu and the drinks were gorgeous, as well as the pasta but the pizzas were too fake cheesy and tasted cheap and the cheesecake lacked flavour. May have been bad ordering, would recommend not getting pizza but 100% get the tiramisu.

Pros: Tiramisu, Venue, Starters/primi

Cons: Pizzas too cheesy/fake, Cheesecake

Lovely restaurant with great vegan options

This lovely restaurant offers lots of vegan options in their menu. The atmosphere and the service were really friendly.

We ordered three vegan starters: vegan cheese with rice Sirup on top, polenta with spinach and bread with a tuna spread on top. All of them were delicious especially the vegan cheese!

For the main course we ordered two different pizzas. One with vegan blue cheese, vegan mozzarella, caramelized onions and capers. It was really really good! The other pizza got vegan mozzarella, mushrooms and green peppers on top - also delicious. The toppings of the pizzas were super yummy just the pizza dough was only average.

Overall it was really delicious and we enjoyed our visit. Especially the service was super nice 😊

Pros: Vegan cheese options (Mozzarella, Blue cheese, …), Super friendly service!, Lovely atmosphere

Cons: Pizza dough is nothing special

A bit more expensive but worth it. Vegan pizza was fantastic. Never had such a good vegan soft cheese.

Lots of vegan options.

The staff here were lovely and made me fresh lemonade which was delicious. I didn't really enjoy my pizza which was disappointing. I hadn't read that it doesn't have a tomato sauce base so it was just cheese, caramelized onions and capers - the capers were really salty. I am sure the other dishes are delicious and I just picked badly.

As good as two years ago

Just totally delicious food. A wide selection of different dishes (menu available online). We were very happy with our choice. We had already eaten here in Florence two years ago and were so thrilled that we definitely wanted to come back. We did and are still totally convinced by the food. Most dishes are completely vegan. Only a few exceptions, well marked vegetarian. The vegan cheese is and remains a highlight.

Pros: Vegan Cheese

Tasty pizza

Lots and lots of vegan options, they have pizza with several different types of vegan cheese. The vegan cheese was delicious, with a generous helping of it. The crust on the pizza was crunchy and tasty. All their desserts were vegan, we had the tiramisu. It was very yummy.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Friendly staff, Lovely atmosphere

Great vegan Pizza

We have the SALENTINA VEGANA Pizza. The pizza was really delicious - the red onions are ingenious. Unfortunately they had no free table when we came, but they give us the pizza to take away. There is a park nearby with tables and benches, we enjoyed the pizza there. 15€ for a pizza is not cheap, but the pizza is worth it and you are very full afterwards. The restaurant is small, reservations should be made beforehand.

Pros: Every Pizza in vegan available , Everything gluten free

Great surprise

We went to this restaurant yesterday, and what a surprise, the food is really good. I ate one of the best vegan pizzas I have ever had with vegan scamorza, and gnochetti al cavolo nero which was deliciously healthy 😀😀.
Last but not the least, the vegan tiramisu was out of this world.

Great staff and a very cozy restaurant. I will definitely go back.🌱

Pros: Vegan options, Light pizza dough, Cozy

Beautiful Carbonara and Tiramisu

The Carbonara was everything I hoped for, creamy, smoky, fabulous pasta - you must have this if you love carbonara - 5/5

Margarita pizza was actually too cheesy - never thought I would say that, but it's true. The crust/ dough was okay, the Napoli crusts are a lot better, but the pizza was of good texture and taste - 3.5/5

Tiramisu was light and fluffy, I don't like coffee and I loved this dessert - 5/5

The BBQ patties were good, along with the vegetables, but for the price, it is not really worth it as there's not much of anything - 2/5
This goes for the eggplant parmigiana, for the price, it's really small, even though it was very dense - 1.5/5

The rice was ok, texture of the rice seemed undercooked, but the veggies in there was good, cauliflower, mushroom, carrots, beansprouts etc - 2/5

Restaurant is lovely and calm, be sure to make a reservation though, they seem to be fully booked all the time.

Owners and staffs were lovely.

Fabulous vegan food in Florence

Super delicious pizzas and tiramisu! You can’t tell the crust is gluten free at all and the service was fab. A little on the pricier side but worth it in our opinion! Huge amount of choice and English translations of all menu items.
NB: the opening times on Happy Cow are incorrect - we went at 6pm and were asked to come back at 7.30pm. Not a problem as the street it is on has lots of little bars to pop into:)

Pros: Vegan versions of nearly all dishes , Large portion sizes , Great service

Cons: Opening times are incorrect

Good flavors but very very heavy cheese pizza

This place gets rave reviews and that’s why we tried it. However, we sadly made the mistake of ordering pizzas and they were very heavy and drenched in vegan cheese/oil. While the service was very friendly and the menu has many vegan options, our dishes were overpowered by cheese and neither of us could finish our plates (very uncommon for me). If you are a fan of veganized ‘real’ pizza perhaps this would not bother you, but I could not get through my mountain of cheese. Again, the other dishes and finger-foods looked more veg-oriented and would’ve likely been more up our alley.

Pros: Atmosphere/music, Friendly staff, Many vegan options

Cons: Large amount of ‘cheese’, Strange pizza crust (gluten free?)

Little expensive but good vegan dinner

Had the gnocchi, vegan pizza with lots of cheese and tiramisu.

Pizza crust was super soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. Lots of cheese and ricotta was super buttery and good.

Tiramisu was a little too chocolatey but still good
