Another kyoto favourite - Edit

Fantastic service, great cosy restaurant & very creative and interesting food. We had a fantastic dinner set with soup, 4x tapas, a main & foccaccia. Also we had cake for dessert. Delicious. All beers recommended were great & lots of homemade drinks. Great!

Pros: Great fusion Italian/Japanese meal, Homemade drink selection & beers, Wonderful service

One of our favourite places in Japan - Edit

The food at Pettirosso was wonderful- so fresh and tasty. The vegan creme brûlée was particularly fantastic. The owners (an Italian man and his Japanese wife) were so friendly and chatted to us about the local culture and community. My partner is GF and the man was able to explain what on the menu was GF and even offered to modify it. The prices were very reasonable and the wine was nice. We are planning on going back to try more of the menu!

Pros: Plenty of fresh vegan options, Interesting menu options, Great atmosphere

Vegetarian delight - Edit

We had a great meal with lots of choices for vegetarians and vegans. The menu was a great mix of Japanese/Italian fusion and the ingredients were fresh and interesting. The owner/waiter Mark was very helpful and friendly. I would happily recommend and we may be back before the week is out. There were fish options for pescetarians too.

Pros: Lots of vegetarian options , Great service , Interesting food

Amazing!!! - Edit

Best restaurant we have been in Japan so far!!! Cozy and familiar, with delicious food and great vegan options. Granted it is a bit a fusion of japanese and european cuisine, but that clearly brings the best out of the two worlds. We have had the problem so far that the real japanese experience is hard to get if you do not speak the language, even more if someone in your group is vegan, but this place gave us an access to something authentic.
The pricing is more than fair and they have an nice variety of drinks (on which they can very competently advise you).
Finally the owners are the most friendly people we have met so far and will chat with you and tell you amazing cultural things and tourist tips.
Would recommend 200%. In fact we are thinking about going back already!

Pros: Veganoptions, Friendly staff, Fusion

fresh japanese-italian fusion in kyoto - Edit

Our entire experience here was a delight, from the warm greeting from the chef-owners to the cozy setting and of course the creative (mostly veg) cuisine. We shared 3 of the vegan seasonal tapas, the vegan peach salad, ratatouille (with egg), vegan pesto pasta, and the mushroom risotto with taleggio. All highlighted fresh, seasonal produce and both Italian and Japanese cooking techniques. The menu does include a fish dish but the majority are veg*n friendly.

best culinary experience in Japan! - Edit

what an amazing place - everything on the menu can be made or substituted to be vegan. There is a vegan set menu which is reasonably priced as well as many mains and share plates. We opted for the fried tofu, stuffed eggplants and our favourite - the pesto mushroom pasta. Yummy wine and the owners are so lovely and up for a chat.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Wine options , Friendly staff

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE - Edit

My favourite meal of our Japan trip so far! We just happened to go on a night that was an all vegan menu and it was amazing!! Very very well priced, ended up being 3700 yen for a cocktail, large beer, 4 tapas/entree meals and a dessert! Lovely staff and lovely little restaurant 💕

SHOULD BE FIVE STARS 😍

Pros: at least 4 vegan options per day, menu changes every day!, mum could get fish if she wanted but that was the

Agree should be 5 stars! Friendly, cozy, delicious, loved it! ❤️ - Edit

Such lovely friendly hosts, Italian guy and his Japanese wife. lots of vegan or seafood, no meat served. Nice wine, good prices, the set we had was big, salads, bread, etc. the main choice with the set was smaller but you already had a lot to go with it fit a good price and was really delicious! Had great chats with the owner, nice wine, even got some free pizza as they were testing recipes. We both totally loved it and it deserves big props as they are trying to bring vegan food to their restaurant which is more challenging to succeed in the area with the non vegans. We had a great night! Go there!!!

Pros: So friendly! , Great vegan choices , Great wine, atmosphere and prices

Cons: None!

Surprising good restaurant with many vegan option - Edit

I discovered this small restaurant just passing in front of it, and i decided to have dinner there. I think that is probably the best place that i find for price/quality here in Japan. They have also a vegan dinner set that is perfect for one person.

Pros: Good price/quality, All the dishes where super tasty

Cons: Music was a bit loud

Deserves 5 stars - Edit

Amazing little restaurant tucked away on a side street. A select menu with the majority vegan or vegetarian (and some fish options) - with a focus on organic, quality produce. We enjoyed the tapas, ravioli and risotto, as well as some very tasty Italian wines recommended by the owner. The owners are extremely friendly and make you feel very welcome. Would give it 5 stars but Happy Cow won’t let me select it because it’s not fully vegan!! Highly recommend.

Is a small wine bar with a lot of personality, great atmosphere and wine and FANTASTIC food! Ayako, the chef and owner , and her italian husband are very friendly and relaxed. They have lot of different vegetarian and vegan option! We didn't know them but we felt at home just after entering. Good luck guys!
