First Review by Paolla

Extensive vegan menu - Edit

This is not a typical "vegetarian friendly" restaurant - most of which have just a couple of things for vegetarians (and nothing for vegans) - Piola has dozens of vegan dishes. There is an entire page of vegan choices near the end of the menu. Strangely, it's not currently listed on-line or displayed on their menu posted at the front of the restaurant, but we trusted Happy Cow and asked the receptionist (who happened to be a vegetarian) and she showed us the menu. We were very impressed. But be careful - many of the items on the vegan menu have the same names as similar dishes with meat, so when ordering, be sure to make it clear that you want the vegan one (the numbers are different). The food is very tasty. We ordered two vegan pizzas, a vegan risotto, and one vegetarian pizza. Most were excellent (one of the vegan pizzas was OK but not something we would order again - everything else was really good). The atmosphere was very nice. Another review of the place mentioned loud music - we didn't feel that the music was loud. And it was not expensive for a nice dinner in Sao Paulo's hip Cerqueira Cesar neighborhood (and much less expensive than most other restaurants in this neighborhood which have few vegan options). The service was great. They charged for one more beer than we had, but when notified they removed the extra charge without question. If you're looking for a regular restaurant for dinner that has many vegetarian and vegan choices, I highly recommend Piola. I would rate this 5 cows because there are more vegan choices than every other vegetarian restaurant we've visited in Sao Paulo, but Happy Cow limits the rating for veg-friendly restaurants to only 4 cows.

Pros: Extensive selection of vegan dishes, Tasty food, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Vegan and meat dishes have same names
