large selection

I loved the large selection of vegan pizzas. The vegan cheese has little to do with real cheese, but I didn't mind. Overall, a very tasty pizza in a cozy place.

Better than 3*, but not enough to deserve 4.

Three stars is perhaps a bit harsh, but four would have been too much. I'm thankful they had some vegan options and that they were open so late, when almost all the vegan restaurants were closed. The space is nice and seems to be popular with the locals.
Pizza-wise, I have mixed feelings, hence the rating. The dough was nice, chewy and crispy. The toppings were ok, but the cheese was poor. No melt and flavour. Improving this alone would bring the pizza to a really good level.

Pros: Vegan options

Cons: Poor vegan cheese

One of the best Pizzerias we have ever eaten - and we have eaten Pizza in Italy many many times!

They have a huge selection of vegan Pizzas, and vegan Pastas and Desserts soon to come as well!

Lorenzo, the owner, is very nice and helpful, and a real pizza-master!

There is also a very nice kids corner in the restaurant, what made our daughter very happy.

We loved it and will be back for sure!

Disappointing vegan pizza

I think they might've changed the vegan cheese they use. On older pictures it seems to melt like regular cheese, but the one we had was like crumbly tofu even though it was still almond based. It didn't taste good and the overall pizza was pretty tasteless. I expected more from the reviews. The dough was exceptional, though!

Delicious pizza bases and very reasonable prices

I went here for lunch and the pizza came out quite quickly. I thought the prices were good too. Although the toppings lacked some originality (only really offering mushroom, pepper, tomato, olives, basil, and corn), the pizza bases and vegan cheese they use are pretty tasty. I would come here again.

Mi primera opción

No sé cuantas veces he venido!
Tiene pizza con queso de almendra lo que es perfecto para cuando tus amigos come-carnes quieren pizza pero no quieren excluirte y tu no quieres comer en una pizzería x pan con tomate :)

Pros: queso de almendra, friendly staff, nice vibe

Best vegan in Quito

I visited this place with my girlfriend for a late night pizza. We phoned to make sure they had vegan cheese and the base didn’t have any eggs or milk and they confirmed both. Although it was reasonably late the place was still busy and the kitchen was buzzing with activity. You have to order your food at the desk and then find a seat and they will bring it to you. It had a traditional and authentic Italian pizza kitchen feel and although the menu was just pizzas and salads there were plenty of vegan options. You need to specify vegan cheese when you order and is a little more expensive than the menu price. The pizza came so quick we were hardly waiting five minutes and it was delicious the best pizza I have had in South America. The ingredients were fresh, 100% organic and their vegan cheese which they said was made with almonds was awesome. Friendly staff a great atmosphere and delicious vegan pizza means I will definitely be returning soon.

Pros: Great pizza , Buzzing atmosphere , Super fast service

Cons: Serves meat , Had to pay a little extra for the vegan cheese
