The reviews on here suggested there were options on the menu, there were only sides, tomatoes on toast, (bruschetta) and plate of what looked like mostly stalks (verdura/vegetables €7) and salad, (tomatoes and onion on lambs lettuce).
When asked if I could veganise a main (like the couscous in the picture on here) I was told no.
All the portions were tiny, everyone had to fill up on bread.
They seems to think they are of restaurant quality, but it’s very simple and basic.
Please swerve and use a much more deserving establishment

Pros: The table

Cons: Overpriced , Pretentious , Unhelpful

Clearly labelled menu but no officially vegan option

They can adapt some dishes which are normally not vegan (norma or trapani without cheese, pistacchio without anchovies). Staff is very kind, knowledgeable and helpful!
The food however was a little bland. Good wine though!
Nice setting in an alley, inside or outside seating. Reservation on weekends/high season recommended.

2 main vegan options

In my opinion there are 2 main vegan options here: pasta alla Norma without ricotta cheese and pasta with pistacchio without archovies. Both are changes to non vegan dishes

Sehr leckere Pasta

Die vegane/ vegetarische Auswahl war nicht riesig, aber dafür fand ich es preiswert und sehr lecker. An dem Abend war jedoch viel los, sodass die Servicekräfte etwas überfordert waren.

Pros: Geschmacklich sehr gut , Preiswert

Cons: Service könnte schneller & aufmerksamer sein

Einfach umwerfend

In der Nähe vom Dom (Seitenstrasse), alles sehr modern aber doch gemütlich und einladend. Vegane Optionen sind deutlich auf der Karte gekennzeichnet. Alles sehr frisch und lecker. Die Bedienung war sehr zuvorkommend.

Pros: Lage, Bedienung, Frisch

Nothing special, food just ok

When I got there, I asked if they serve vegan options. I asked in english and added „vegano” which is in Italian. The waiter told me they don’t do that. Normally I would leave without further questions, but since there are 3 places in Cefalu serving vegan options, one already booked out, I decided to ask another waiter who said they do vegan food!
Vegan food is marked on the menu but be careful, there are mistakes, eg spagetti With ricotta cheese, I asked if it’s vegan cheese and they said No, this is a mistake on the menu ...
I ordered soagetti With pistachios (not vegan on menu but they said they could veganise it). It was ok, nothing else than that, a bit bland, i would expect more from 16€ dish

Pros: Vegan options marked on menu (With some errors)

Cons: Quite expensive, even for touristy place, Some waiters have No idea they serve vegan food, Food is just ok, nothing special

Great vegan options!

Really wonderful and friendly restaurant in the center of Cefalu. The menu has vegan options clearly marked, and much more than the average Italian/Sicilian restaurant. Lots of fresh vegetables and great produce, including a warm potato salad, green bean salad, orange salad, tomato salad, pepper salad, eggplant caponata, several vegan pasta dishes, the best vegetable couscous I ever had, and a lot more. The staff is super friendly and accommodating, and the atmosphere is lovely. Great find in Sicily!
