Not my type of food - Edit

They only had 2 vegan deepfried riceballs. Me and my girlfriend had a really hard time getting through those (they didn't taste that good). One was with a small small amount of vegetables in the middle and one with a small small amount of bad tasting soy. The rest of the ball was just thick rice.

Cons: Needs more vegetables or better taste

Delicious fast food option! - Edit

This place was recommended to me by a friend for authentic Sicilian street food. We got the vegan Arancina and mushroom pizza. It was delicious and affordable!

Vegan arancini - Edit

Cosy stand up bar with a few seats with a few vegan trad italian snacks. Mostly fried specialities. Arancini with different fillings. We liked the Vegano best! Very friendly staff. V fair prices.

Pros: Easy. Central. Friendly. Tasty. Fast. Cheap.

Not vegan friendly - Edit

Do not be fooled by the tag - this place had 2 deepfried balls which were pretty disgusting to get through.. One was with a small lump of vegetables in the middle, follow by a large amount of rice before the deepfried batter. The second one was a bunch of tasteless soy, deepfried in batter..

Plus the staff were not very friendly nor welcoming..

Pros: They had some fruit in a plastic cup

Cons: Disgusting, Deepfried, Balls

Nice for snacks, small selection - Edit

If you are visiting the Vatican this place is a short walk from the Lepanto metro stop - so you could get off the metro, grab something takeaway here, and then walk to the Vatican. Perfect for waiting in potentially long lines.

The pizza was pretty tasty, the Arancini with soy ragu was not my favourite - I think the other Arancini with mixed veg might have been yummier. Arancini is quite heavy food so some people might love it, others it might not quite be their taste... Up to you.

In other respects we weren't so impressed - everything was okay (staff, decor, atmosphere, cleanliness) but don't go expecting an amazing dining experience! Strictly quick and easy food!

Pros: Quick and affordable, Snack food for the go, Good pizza

Cons: Small selection, Arancini didn't impress.

I was an arancina virgin... - Edit

Tried this place because of it's proximity to the Vatican and I definitely don't regret it. Arancina are lovely- crispy lovely fried coating, amazing rice and soya-ragu filling. I now need to try the vegetable one. It's also very filling and cheap at only 2.50 euros each.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. I can't really fault it.

Pros: Delicious vegan food, Very inexpensive, Helpful staff

Cons: None that they can help

Amazing vegan friendly Sicilian food in Rome! - Edit

Found out about this place thanks to an Italian vegan Facebook page.

They had two types of vegan arancini, one labeled Vegana that has soy ragu inside (delicious tomato sauce w/ soy protein), and they also let us know the mixed vegetable one was also vegan. Some of the pizza by the slice was already without cheese. I also noticed some soy nuggets and salads in the small refrigerator case near the entrance. But I was there for the rice balls, which were AMAZING, inexpensive and very filling! We also had a slice of pizza with the most amazing tomato sauce, peppers and eggplant. The flavors of the vegetables and sauce were incredible, rich and very fresh. This is probably the best food we had in Rome. I would absolutely make it a priority to eat there again if I am ever in Rome!
