Vegan paradise - Edit

The food was amazing! And it was just a 10 minute walk from Villa Borghese. I felt that the buffet was a little expensive, but definitely worth it. I have tried many vegan pastas and I think Ops! ravioli in cream sauce was my favorite. Ops! also offers a huge selection of desserts. The only downside of the meal was a charge for water. I find that most of the restaurants in Rome do that. It's not something I'm used to.

Pros: Location, Amazing food, Vegan options

Cons: Charges for water, Price

Great buffet! - Edit

Ops! had a great selection of rices, pasta salads, and meat substitutes! My full plate and a cappuccino came out to around $10 which seemed reasonable for what I got. Quick and easy!

Lovely staff, good food. Many people eat here and food by weight catches you out.

Very impressive selection of food. Today was all gluten free as well, bonus!

Worth the visit - Edit

We went to Ops on Palm Sunday, and we were surprised that 80% of the people there were locals. Ops offer a vegan buffet, with an impressive number of dishes. They have a range of dishes, from lasagne, and pasta, to steamed veg, tofu and seitan dishes, different types of hummus and a small salad selection. There were a few dishes that were exceptional; the red rice with peas and strawberries is incredibly flavourful, the lentils were beautifully spiced. We also had chocolate ice cream, not included in the buffet and that was just out of this world. It's worth coming for the ice cream alone!! I'm really glad that such options for vegans exist in Rome and I think Ops is worth the visit, however it's not a place I returned to, as I don't think it's great value for money and I would like more greens and more nourishing options.

Pros: incredible ice cream, excellent variety

Cons: not the best value for money

Tasty and interesting food - Edit

I visited it with my omni mum and we both liked the food and the different tastes. It's a bit on the expensive side, so we didn't fill our plates too much and in the end stayed a little hungry. We also shared a Tiramisu dessert which was nice.

Pros: Tasty, interesting (all vegan) food

Cons: A bit expensive

Be careful! :P - Edit

There's so many options and I got too excited, did not even order a drink. Me and my s/o shared a glass of OJ and fill our plates twice, second one not too much though.
It turns out to be 50€!
I agree with the other person commenting earlier. The plates was heavy and IDK if it's taken into consideration when weighing.
Food was nice and the pinoy staff was helpful. :)

Pros: Options

Cons: Price

lovely food bit pricey for what it is - Edit

The staff were lovely and really helpful as I had never visited before! It's buffet style so you pick your food then weigh your plate before sitting down. It would have been helpful if I'd known how much it was (after weighing) so I could estimate whether I could afford more! Was a bit shocked that my food came to €14 and I didn't even have a full plate! My ot was still hungry after we left as he didn't want to spend more money! The plates are quite heavy and I'm not sure if that is taken into consideration when weighing. The food was nice and tasted good but we didn't get much for what we paid

Il mio primo amore - Edit

Questo locale è stato il mio primo amore e lo consiglio a tutti. La formula è perfetta... si sceglie il tavolo, si prende un piatto e lo si riempie come si desidera e poi si va a pesare... e si paga a peso. Il buffet è veramente vario e sempre rifornito sia con piatti caldi che freddi. Si ha anche la possibilità di riempire dei contenitori take away. Per me il cibo è buonissssimo e sempre vario. Il mercoledì è gluten free vegan.

Pros: menù vario che cambia con le stagioni

Cons: non ho ancora trovato difetti

Amazing. In evening it works by weighing your plate at the end. Lots of options for everyone, nice romantic vibe in restaurant (given the style of self service), candles, low light etc.

A must when you're in Rome - Edit

Great experience. Very friendly staff and amazing food. Not the cheapest place but not more expensive then a regular restaurant. The pasta, lasagna and risitto was delicious. The location is a bit off from the tourist spots. 20 min walk from spanish steps or Termini. But it is worth it!

Pros: Amazing Food, Great staff, Great atmosphere

Cons: The location is not the best

A Must Try in Rome - Edit

The food here is absolutely delicious. Ops! is a nice, casual sit down restaurant. You ask for a table, then choose whatever you want from the buffet, and have your plate weighed before returning to your table. There are lots of yummy options to choose from, so it's easy to over-eat and end up with a big bill if you're not careful. Lots of yummy vegan deserts as well. If you are in Rome, definitely check this place out!

Pros: Variety, Delicious, Buffet style

Cons: A little pricey, Closed one day a week- double check hours

Wonderful Lunch Buffet - Edit

Me and mum are on holiday in Italy and ops! is the closest vegan restaurant near our hotel. When we first walked in we were a little confused, I would say to just ignore the 'tags' outside and just go in. You take a plate and load it with whatever you want AND EVERYTHING IS VEGAN! I wish now I had gotten more. You pay by the weight of the plate and pay at the end.

I loved the seitan meat and the tomato chickpeas, and mum loved the vegetable fried dumpling things ha. I then had a dessert of this chocolate pie thing, which was also lovely. It cost 30 euros for 1kg plus a dessert and a glass of wine.

Pros: Variety for vegans, Nice atmosphere, Friendly staff

Cons: Didn't know what some things were

Imagine dozens and dozens of amazing vegan items in a buffet format! Staff is super friendly. You can tell the food is made with love. Everything is fresh and tastes amazing. I don't taste a lot of salt or shortcuts. you can eat both super healthy, or slightly naughty, vegan style.
