First Review by lotustummy

delish - Edit

There were so so many vegan options ( 4 pages daily specials). Went with my omni friend who was worried it would only be vegan available but she was happy with the choices and even said she wants to go back! It was packed because it was Valentine's day but we were given a table in 10 mins. Staff looked under pressure (because it was manic) but they still managed to smile and be nice! Definitely going back! feel like this is a place for everyone. Food was good but desert..... would go back for that alone. Probably the best vegan desert I've had to date!

Pros: Lots of options for both Vegans and non-vegans

Cons: smaller restaurant - bit more compact. Still very

Best vegan food in Rome! - Edit

I cannot stress enough how amazing the food and service was here! The menu is very extensive, with lots of non-vegan as well as vegan options! They are clearly labeled and include starters, pasta dishes, pizzas and even 5 desserts! Went there for 4 days straight and enjoyed it every night, I can highly recommend the vegan margarita and the vegan cream with crushed strawberry biscuits. The staff is very very very friendly as well and the restaurant is not too big, just nice and cosy. I seriously recommend this to everyone, go give it a try!! IF I COULD, I'D GIVE IT 5 STARS!

Pros: not expensive, lots of choice, very good food

Vegan friendly in Rome - Edit

This place was near my hotel and close to Termini station so it was a must.
I loved the staff attitude. Even though it was packed and we had to wait for the food, it was a nice experience and I got back the next day haha.

must have in Rome - Edit

No doubt. It was the best vegan Italian food we had in Rome. Very friendly Staff, which is also the family of owners. If you are looking for typical Italian food in its vegan version, this is the Place to go!

Pros: great taste, clean, friendly and English speaking

Cons: too less time to taste all, cannot give five stars

Kind service, family owned, DELICIOUS food - Edit

We went here twice during our trip. The second time, we had their special New Years Eve dinner. Even though they were fully booked for the NYE course, they allowed us to reserve an earlier time and prepared the special meal for us. It was fantastic. For €55 Euros, we had enough food for 3 meals (couldn’t finish it all and took some to-go). In a city run by pizza and pasta, it was nice to have some variety. Their vegan meat was so so tasty.

The staff was accommodating and friendly. I look forward to being able to go back during our next trip.

Would like to try more - Edit

Many interesting vegan options.

Hummus was very tasty, bean legume balls were quite similar to meat, chickpea omelette had some kind of "yoghurt" in it so it made very interesting combination.
Service was good and we didn't wait for too long even tho the restaurant was full.

Pros: Food styling, Tasty, Many options

Cons: Needs more gluten free meals

Fantastic real Italian food - Edit

One of the best places in Rome where you can eat real Roman food, and traditional more in general. The gnocchi alla sorrentina are fantastic, not mentioning carbonara and other pasta. We often go there for a fast lunch and we have arancini and supplì, but if you have time sit down and eat: you go out very happy!

Pros: Vegan options, Fantastic traditional recipes, Near Central station

A real treat - Edit

Wonderful place. We ate here several times on our holiday and each time was a delight. Staff are super friendly and very happy to explain and recommend vegan options. They have vegan options / sections clearly marked on the menu so there is no worry about ordering incorrectly. Food was delicious every time. Whilst eating vegan in Rome is relatively easy, it was a real treat to have creamy tagliatelle, cheesy gnocchi, tiramisu and caramel panna cotta! Worth a visit for vegan alternatives of Italian specialities. Just lovely.

Pros: Vegan sections on menu, Friendly staff, Delicious food

Best food I have ever eaten EVER!!! - Edit

Holy crap... I’m not just saying this.. this was hands down the best meal I have ever eaten and if I would have gotten ran over by a tram afterwards I wouldn’t even have cared because my life is now complete anyways. I’m only here in Rome for a couple days but I will most definitely be going back. I have never seen vegan cheese melt like real cheese on a pizza before like this. Mind = blown.

Pros: vegan cheese that actually melts, nutella tastes exactly like regular nutella, Pizza balls are LIFE!!!

Amazing! - Edit

I wanted to give 5 stars but am unable to because it's not all vegan, but the vegan menu at this place was extensive and so impressive. From it I had the seitan ravioli, tiramisu and an organic red wine. All amazing! Best tiramisu and best ravioli I've had so far. The service was also 5 stars. Can't wait to go back and try more from the menu.

Pros: Long vegan menu, amazing food, great service

Cons: Maybe the prices are slightly higher than other It

couldn't have been more perfect - Edit

I came here twice in 2 days when I visited Rome. The vegan menu is huge and the non-vegan menu is even bigger. It worked really well for my non vegan parents and I. Everyone was happy!! Prices are very reasonable too. We had a bottle of wine, 2 starters, 3 entrees, and 2 desserts for €60.

Pros: tons of fun options, staff super friendly

Great when your partner is not vegan! - Edit

My GF is not vegan and as much as she enjoys eating at vegan places she also likes when she can have the choice of eating something else. We were visiting the national museum nearby and had lunch in this really really nice place with friendly staff. They speak fluently English. We both had pizza. While it was not our best ever it was still very nice! I recommend the bruschettas with hummus and cherry tomatoes which are delicious!!!! I had a nice vegan tiramisu for dessert. Very yummy too. They have loads of vegan options so we might return and try something else like their seitan scaloppine or something else. Warmly recommended!

Pros: Loads of vegan options (from starter to dessert)

So exciting to get a menu where you have a choice of food options!
The vegan options here were amazing. So good in comparison to the UK. Well, where I live anyway!
I had the ravioli with spinach and tofu in a tomato sauce. It was delicious.
Highly recommend coming here. Meat options available, together with traditional roman dishes. It caters for most.

Pros: Vegan options , Vegetarian options , Vegan wines available

Cons: Gets very busy, Were not able to book on line as so busy

This place deserves 5 stars!! - Edit

Dear god, I had the best meal I've had in all of Italy here. I had the pasta with seitan and chilli in tomato sauce, and for dessert the vegan tiramisu, with a glass of the vegan white wine. I feel like I've died and gone to vegan heaven. There are two pages of vegan options in this place, all sounded equally appetizing, and with four days of Rome ahead of me I'll probably be back every single day.
Wish I could give this place the full five stars.

Pros: Amazing vegan wine, English speaking staff, Central location

Cons: A bit pricy (but 100% worth it!)

choices - Edit

There were lots of vegan options to be had which was great. However when I got my calzone it was SO salty!! I literally had to drink a litre of water afterwards - disappointed I have to say.
