Will accommodate

There were no listed vegan options, but I was able to order toast & jam (no butter), a fruit cup, & potatoes (part of an egg breakfast they were willing to make separately).

Pros: Accommodating upon request

Cons: No vegan menu items

Super Vegan!

Simple and yum Super Vegan focaccia (go for the focaccia, not the bread. It is so good!). The waitress was lovely, the owner stressed 😅 cheap. The focaccia costa 5.50€ and, for this Region, Liguria, it’s a very reasonable price.

Vegan sandwich

This was the only vegan place I could find in Vernazza, so I was grateful for that 😅. There was one labeled vegan sandwich on the menu, and I also got a lemonade which was super refreshing. The sandwich came out with a slice of cheese, and I wasn’t too confident it was vegan, so I just took it off (it wasn’t listed on the ingredients on the menu, so I think they just added it). Sandwich was fine otherwise. Nothing special but grateful for the option.

Good vegan sandwich

The vegan sandwich they offer on the menu was very tasty. Salty from the olive tapenade and fresh from the veggies.

Food is okay

I had the super vegan sandwich which consists of veggies. It was affordable. It wasn't bad, just decent. The place was really busy for lunch.

Pros: Vegan options , Inexpensive

Cons: Okay food

There were not many vegan options around in April. The pesto at Lunch Box is not vegan, so the options here were focaccia or salad. I had the salad made to order. It was fresh and okay, though nothing special either. The waiter was reallly nice in trying to accomodate me.

Amazing meal

This is an understated restaurant but the food was awesome. They have a couple of listed vegan options on the menu and quite a number of vegetarian options. All of the focaccia sandwiches were great. The “Super Vegan” focaccia sandwich had an olive tapenade that was fabulous. The vegetarian bruschettas (one with tomato and mozzarella, other with sun-dried tomato and parmesan) were some of the best we have had in Italy. The pesto here was vegan and amazing too. (I’ve run out of superlatives.)

Our waiter was very friendly and very knowledgeable.

I would give this place a 5 star rating (but the app limits restaurants in this category to 4 stars.)

Very good

The Vegan Panini was absolutely delicious. The bread was hot and crispy, the veggies were nice and tasty. The Vegan option was clearly marked.

Sandwichs de focaccia vegan délicieux et abordables !

Petit restaurant qui propose des salades et des sandwichs de focaccia à composer soi-même avec un large choix d’ingrédients.
On a testé le super vegan très frais et composé un sandwich avec focaccia complète, purée d’olives, roquette, tomates séchées, aubergine et concombre un véritable régal.

Pros: Sandwich à composer soi-même , Nombreux ingrédients vegan (pain complet top), Pas cher

Delicious and pretty affordable, considering it's Cinque Terre. 5.50 euro for the super vegan with the choice of white or some other focaccia. Lots of veggies inside and quite filling

They know what vegan is

Had a vegetable soup and a gf pasta with pomodoro. Both were nice! For this town, knowing what is vegan and what’s not is already a lot!

Pros: Gluten free pasta

Not good for dinner

My boyfriend got the vegetarian pesto lasagne and he found it not so tasty, the pesto way too satly! And the waiter was not friendly, he spilled a drink over us and didn't seem very sorry. It was a big portion though. There were no vegan dinner options that day.

Pros: Big portion

Cons: Not so tasty , Service not friendly, Little vegan options

Hervorragende Foccachia

Leckere Säfte, die für die Menge aber bisschen teuer sind (btw: das war keinesfalls ein 500 ml Glas, sondern ein Cocktailglas, höchstens 300, oder 400...)
Foccachia waren sehr gut, mein Mann hätte sich noch eine bestellt wenn er nicht satt gewesen wäre! Und es lassen sich beliebige vegane Füllungen zusammenstellen, also muss man zu zweit etc nicht das gleiche nehmen wie es häufig so ist! Gleiches gilt für die Sandwiches.😄Würde es gehen würde ich noch 0,5 oder 1 Punkt mehr geben.

A yes from me

I think the only option on the menu may have been the vegan sandwich but I came back twice for it. Super tasty and they offered gluten free bread😄

Yummy smoothie

After a hike in the heat and humidity we wanted something cold and healthy. This place has juice and smoothies. The smoothie is one fruit of your choice, soy milk, ice, and agave, it was really good and refreshing.

Pros: Many fruits to choose from, Speak English , Environmentally conscious

Create your own sandwich!

Went here for lunch after our hike ending in Vernazza. It has one labeled vegan sandwich, but they also have the option to create your own sandwich or salad. So this way you can actually order a lot more vegan options even! I had focaccia with olive paste, grilled eggplant and bell pepper, walnuts & olives. It was great and filling! Also their juices (also create your own option) & coffee were great!

Pros: Make your own sandwich or salad, 1 labeled vegan option, Delicious juices

- bring your own lunch box / Tupperware to avoid plastic waste

Pros: One vegan option on the menu

Cons: Wrapped in aluminium

The Super Vegan Sandwich is incredible. We ordered it all 3 of the days we were in Vernazza. Their juices and ginsing coffee are great as well. They do not have many vegan options, but what they have is delightful.

Pros: Food is delicious , Service is fast, Location is great

Cons: Limited vegan options, Small space can get crowded

Best vegan focaccia in the Cinque Terre!

Delicious vegan focaccia with olive pate and grilled veggies. Perfect lunch spot if you're hiking from Corniglia - Vernazza - Monterosso! We also loved the Ace (orange, lemon, carrot) juice!

Loved this place!!

Delicious vegan sandwiches, soy milk, and the co-owner was running a one man show (not expecting so many people in November) but was really friendly nonetheless. Loved the sandwich! My favorite was the veggies and cheese with no cheese, add sundried tomatoes. Yum!!

Wonderful little sandwich shop!

This place really blew us away! One panini clearly marked as vegan (super vegan) but the veggies and cheese panini without the cheese was excellent too. I added sundried tomatoes to mine and that was perfection. Great service. Also soy milk for smoothies or cappuccinos. So happy we found this place!
