Great food!

They have a separate vegan menu that you have to ask for (our waiter was new though and didn't know anything about a vegan menu, but a different waiter gave us the vegan menu).
We had a vegan pizza with yellow tomatoes (awesome!) And the chickpea pasta (okay).

Best vegan pizza

Friendly, helpful staff. The waitress spoke good English. There was a separate vegan menu (unfortunately not in English) with multiple options for all courses, which were all very reasonably priced. Two of us had two courses and two medium beers each for a total of just €51. All the food and particularly the pizza, was exceptionally tasty.

Pros: Outside seating, Friendly staff , Tasty, reasonably priced food

Amazing pizza!

A great separate vegan menu (has to be reauested). A great number of choices between starters, pasta, burgers and pizza. We had 2 pizzas and the rice cheese is amazing. The starter pizza frita was amazing, I never has such tasty tomato sauce. Animal friendly.

Pros: Separate Vegan Menu

Best italian vegan food!

Last year we have been here before, and we came back to trieste this year mainly because of this Restaurant. They have a whole vegan menu when you ask for it. The homemade rice-mozzarella is breathtaking and the parmigiana is delicious. Also the prices are absolutely okay for what you get! We will go there a lot of times in the next days 🤤

Pros: Rice Mozzarella , Best Pizza , Parmigiana

Cons: Long waitingtime for the food

Excellent vegan options

Excellent location just off the popular V.le venti settembre, it would be worthy of 5 stars (not allowed because it isn’t exclusively vegan/veg) but their separate vegan menu was delicious, with 3-4 options on each starter/primo/main and dessert.

Tasty, creamy pasta sauce and authentic pizzas. The dishes may appear to be simple but like many great Italian meals the quality supersedes the quantity of ingredients. Their MONTANARA DI PIZZA FRITTA (Deep fried pizza starter) is HUGE but the tastiest dish you will get in Trieste.

Large menu for non -vegan/veggies too so good for groups. Highly recommended in Trieste

Pros: Tasty flavours, Good prices, Authentic Italian atmosphere

Cons: Can get busy, booking advised

Probably best meal in Trieste in 10 days

Separate vegan menu and delicious food! Had the pizza gialla which was excellent and only €8! I can’t wait to go back and try all the other options! So nice to have somewhere that does both meat veggie and vegan so your whole group can have great food without compromising on atmosphere or limited menu options. Lovely staff, lovely setting 👍

Best vegan Pizza in Triest

Maybe the best vegan Pizza I have ever had! We went their twice. You have to ask for the vegan menu (which is only Italian) The first time I had the vegan Margherita with Olives and the second time I had the pizza with yellow tomato sauce, rice mozzarella, yellow tomatoes and red tomatoes. It was so delicious. At our first visit my girlfriend had the pizza with just rice mozzarella and "Friarielli". This one was also good but it was a little too much rice mozzarella and we missed the taste of tomato sauce.
A total recommendation when you're in Triest!

Pros: Nice and helpful staff , Own Vegan Menu, Nice restaurant

Amazing food

When we came to Trieste we were sceptical if we can find any restaurant which serves vegan food. But we were surprised as we visited this place. They have a fully vegan menu which you have to ask for. They serve traditional Italian dishes which are very fairly priced. You can get a pizza for 8-10€ and pasta for 10€. The waiters were also very friendly. The only negative point was that the menu was only in Italien available. We helped our selves with the iPhone camera translator function.

Edit: We were twice there and I can‘t get away the feeling of that they don‘t really want tourists at this place. But maybe this is just a feeling of mine.

Do not miss!!!

Granted, this was the first meal I’ve ever eaten in Italy, but it was absolutely incredible! There is a full vegan menu. It’s only in Italian, but the very helpful waiter translated the entire thing for us. Between two people, we split the bruschetta, chickpea pasta, eggplant parm, and a pizza (they didn’t have a vegan dessert that day). It was just the right amount of food for two hungry Americans to leave a little too full. With .5L of incredible house wine and two beers, the bill was 50€, which is a steal by US standards. Everything was good, but I will dream of the eggplant parm and tomato sauce for the rest of my life!!

Pros: Incredible food , Multi course vegan menu, Great service

Best vegan pizza

Can only chime in with the others: ask for the vegan menu. They have a variety of appetizers, primi, secondi and pizza. Everything was super tasty and well-cooked. The pizza dough was amazing. We had a vegan pizza with yellow tomato sauce, topped with rice-based mozzarella. No exaggeration: the best vegan pizza we had so far. Absolutely recommended!

Pros: Delicious vegan pizza, Seperate vegan menu with plenty of choice

Separate vegan menu

The restaurant has a cool design which I liked a lot. The owner and the staff were super nice and bring you a separate vegan menu and vegan starter if you ask. They offer multiple dishes which were all unique in some kind of way compared to the traditional italian versions. The bruschette with polenta was delicious and I really liked the vegan mozzarella made from milkrice, a bit similar to mochi, because it actually had a creamy melted texture.

Ask for the vegan menu

Have eten here a year ago and that was great, so we went again yesterday. Was again very good, we loved it and we would certainly go again. You have to ask for the vegan menu.

Nach der veganen Karte fragen!

Leider sind auf der normalen Karte die veganen Optionen nicht aufgeführt, es gibt aber eine separate. Da gibs aber reichlich Auswahl.

Ich habe eine Pizza mit dem veganen Mozzarella zum Mitnehmen genommen. Waren ca. 8,50 €, die ich für Peperonis und Oliven als Belag insg. bezahlt hab.

Strong Italian flavours

All the food we had was of great taste. My phone's internet didn't work at the restaurant so I couldn't look up what any of the dishes meant. None of the staff really spoke English either. But we were very happy with the food we got in the end. Everything was of great quality. It was not really expensive, but the portions were quite small and not quite filling enough. If we had ordered one more round it would have been perfect, but also more expensive of course.

Pros: Vegan versions of classic Italian food

Cons: Have to ask for the vegan menu

Eine tolle vegane Karte

Man muss zwar erst nach der veganen Karte fragen und es stehen keinerlei vegane Sachen in der normalen Karte aber wenn man die einmal hat hat man eine tolle Auswahl von Vorspeisen bis zur Nachspeise.

Pros: Auswahl bei jedem Gang , typisch Italienisch , mega lecker

Cons: nur nach Nachfrage veganes Menü

Super tasty vegan menu

They have a separate vegan menu (don’t worry to ask for it), which was wonderful. We had two starters and two main dishes, and it was completely perfect (their vegan cheese is delicious). They serve amuse-bouche before the starter and they surprised us with a vegan one, with pumpkin and capers. We brought our dog with us and they gave her water immediately. Price was totally fine.

Dedicated vegan menù

The food is tasty and they have a dedicated vegan menù but the meals offered do not contain much protein.
The staff is quick and friendly and the atmosphere is cozy. Totally suggested.
