One of the best vegan in puglia

This is one of the only 5 fully vegan restaurant in puglia. It offers many different dishes from couscous, to sushi, avocado toast, soya noodle, burgers with different option etc. I liked the homemade ice tea without sugar. The owners are very kind and friendly. The food is healthy and tasty and prices are very reasonable. You wont regret it

Pros: Healthy food, Tasty, Very cute restaurant

Very good!

Micro is a very small cute vegan joint. The service is nice, the food is good and very tasty. Italy unfortunately still offers incredibly little vegan food so this was really a treat to eat here! Hopefully we will see more vegan tents in puglia in a few years!

Pros: Super

Cons: Geen nadelen

@missvegannl Please allow me to comment on your thoughts. The Apulian kitchen is originally mostly based on about 35 vegetables and therefore a perfect area for vegans. I agree however, that most places don't label the vegan options and often also on request, they don't know. Also many modern interpretations or dishes, that are not traditional are also not vegan. I can recommend Raparossa in Pezze di Greco. So many different options. I like Micro as well for it's simplicity and cuteness however.

Fully vegan restaurant

It's great to find somewhere fully vegan that is tasty! Unfortunately the menu doesn't always live up to expectations - for example, ordering a couscous, falafel and hummus plate implies you get a good amount of each... but we were served with 1 teaspoon of hummus 🥲

It's great for Italy! But I'd keep expectations lowered if you're used to the options of the UK etc

Pros: Fully vegan, Nice starter snack

Cons: A bit underwhelming

Delicious different flavors from pizza and pasta!

Entre las callecitas de Cisternino, llegamos al primer restaurante vegano de todo Puglia. Un lugar muy acogedor atendido por su dueña. Cambiamos la comida italiana por otros sabores muy buenos. Sandwich de hummus, falafels de lentejas con kétchup de betarraga y un queque de chocolate-ají, nuestro favorito con un toque perfecto de picante. Micro es una perfecta parada recorriendo el sur de Italia.

Among the streets of Cisternino, we arrive at the first vegan restaurant in all of Puglia. A very cozy place attended by its owner. We exchanged Italian food for other very good flavors. Hummus sandwich, lentil falafels with beetraft ketchup and a chocolate-chili cake, our favorite with a perfect spicy touch. Micro is a perfect stop touring southern Italy.

Pros: The staff and owner, Vegan cake spicy , Falafel fava

Delicious Vegan Food

We were surprised finding this vegan restaurant close to our air bnb. We went there shortly after they opened and were the first customers. The waitress was nice and prepared all of our food fresh! We had some bread with a kind of bell pepper spread, the bruschetta (amazing tomatoes), the soya spaghetti, the burger and a cake with avocado cream and strawberries. Everything was very tasty with fresh local ingredients and the price was very reasonable.i would definitely recommend going there when you are in the area.

Pros: 100% Vegan restaurant , Fresh and local produce , Freshly cooked food

Cons: Limited indoor seating , Portion size could be a bit bigger

Great tiny restaurant in a very nice and typical location. Food was very good. Portions were a bit small but after spending several days on holidays eating too much, we were so happy to eat less. Meals were very balanced with whole grains, legumes and fresh vegetables.

The owner is very friendly and gave us some advice about activities in the region.

Pros: Location, Food, Friendly owner

Cons: A bit expensive compared to average prices

Cosy 100% vegan restaurant

Based in a picturesque little town (which seemed to also contain a gelateria with vegan options).

I had cumin soya spaghettini and my companion had a pumpkin and quinoa burger with beetroot Mayo. We both had fruit smoothies and everything was lovely.

It was empty at 7pm. Friendly staff, chilled-out ambience.

Pros: Everything vegan, Pretty setting, Relaxed atmosphere

Cons: Sit inside if there are flies about...

Little lovely vegan corner

Small and cool vegan eating corner in the heart of Cisternino. We ate here for lunch yesterday on our trip trough Puglia and we found excellent vegan food, friendly and smiling staff, peaceful and warming atmosphere. Two girls serving and cooking but service was good. Only few tables, better reserve before arriving.
