Vegan italian paradise - Edit

Several pages of vegan options on the menu, all italian food could be done vegan basically:pasta, pizza etc. but also non italian vegan food ; such as chickpea omelett . Really good price level. Many vegan dessert options available as well. Just lovely 👍🇮🇹

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Cheap

Super tasty vegan menu - Edit

Went here with both vegans and non-vegans and everyone really enjoyed the food. Also great wine list. Me and my vegan company had bruschetta, pizzas, pannacotta and tiramisu (first one in years, and it was awesome!). Would rate this 5 stars (not possible at a non-veg restaurant..).

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Great desserts, Friendly staff

Cons: None

Must visit if in Rome - Edit

I went tonight and had the gnocchi with tomato sauce, basil, oregano and vegan cheese. This was one of my favourite meals as a kid long before I was vegan so to be able to order it again tonight was amazing. The gnocchi was so fresh and it was a decent sized serving, they also put on a good amount of vegan cheese which is always appreciated. I also tried some of the gnocchi with the walnut sauce and can also vouch for its amazingness. If your in Rome you must visit and get yourself some true Italian food. I sure hope to go back before leaving Rome.

Pros: Fresh pasta, Veggie menu, Lots of options

delicious and suitable for non vegan friends - Edit

Awesome vegan menu with a huge array of choices... a huge variety of vegan 'cheeses' and 'meats'

A good choice for dining with non-veg/vegan friends as a huge menu for them too. Antipasti was a bit disappointing as the items were all very similar but everything else was great!

Pros: variety and choice

delightful - Edit

cheerful welcome from the (vegan- she told us when she asked if I was) waitress, and the menu was wide-ranging, reasonably priced and interesting.
I had the antipasto, followed by risotto with smoky seitan, and finished off with the panna cotta vegana with caramel and nuts. Everything about this meal was, as per the title of of my review, delightful. A couple of minutes' walk from Termini. Go. But you might want to book, this place is popular!

Pros: Great food, Smiling, helpful staff, Handy location

Meilleure expérience culinaire à Rome - Edit

J'ai tout adoré dans ce restaurant! La carte végétalienne est immense, j'ai eu bcp de mal à choisir. Finalement j'ai pris une escalope de seitan aux champignons qui était délicieuse.
La serveuse Ă©tait vraiment super.

Je recommande totalement!

Amazing! - Edit

I see this place doesn't need any more positive reviews, they already have 100+!
We actually know some relatives of theirs that have another restaurant in Cork, called Marcello's, in Douglas! It was crazy to go there out of recommendation and then realise the connection after tasting their wonderful lasagna! We knew that kind of lasagna from Cork :D

Great place, go and get yourself a meal.

Get the combination of vegan starters. You won't regret it.

Pros: Yes, Yes, Yes!!!!

amazing for vegans - Edit

Amazing, extensive vegan menu with starters, pasta, gnocchi, risotto, arancini and about 20 different pizzas (and vegan desserts too). Perfect to eat at with my omni friend who won’t touch vegan food as it caters for all. Asked for vegan hawaiian pizza (which wasn’t on the menu) and they made one up for me! Only thing is the vegan tiramisu, which I was very excited about ,wasn’t great - kinda crumbly dry cake rather than moist and no taste of either coffee or booze :(

Amazing vegan options in Central Rome! - Edit

Located about a 5 - 10 minute walk from the central train station, lovely restaurant with loads of vegan options, including pizza, pasta and dessert! Really great meat, cheese and gelato substitutes. Even labelled vegan wine! Very friendly staff who speak English well. Gets busy though so book ahead or expect a wait. Carbonara is amazing!!

Amazing vegan menu - Edit

This place has an extensive vegan menu of starters, pasta/pizza/mains, and desserts - they also label their vegan wine. It was really difficult to decide what to order, there was so much choice! We had arancini to start, which were very good indeed. My partner got a seitan and buccatini dish which he loved, though I was a little underwhelmed by my 4 cheese gnocchi (not as cheesy as I was hoping for). The desserts were incredible - he tried the vegan tiramisu, and I had the little dumplings with vegan nutella, which was definitely the right size for sharing- it was a huge portion! Service was great, and we were very satisfied customers.

Paradise for a true foodie - Edit

... Especially if you used to love everything non-vegan and miss the taste but not the cruelty and how it makes you feel sick.

Loved every bite. Veggie menu was separate from the ”normal” menu, vegan drinks and friendly service. Gluten free options as well, staff knew of celiacs disease, we were asked if contamination (like food being fried in the same oil) is a no-no.

I recommend with all my heart. Nice family business just a few steps away from Termini. Even on a normal weekday a reservation is definitely helpful.

Pros: Warm environment , Small business, Delicious food

EXCELLENT Vegan Italian Food - Edit

I stopped by for a meal here twice during my time in Rome. The service was great and the food was so so good.

I had the tofu & spinach ravioli, Broccoli, potato & seitan pizza, the vegan carbonara, and the vegamisu (veganized tiramisu). All of it exceeded expectations and made my time in Rome much more enjoyable.

I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an authentic Italian meal that is veganized.

Pros: High Quality Food, Many Vegan Options, Friendly & Accommodating Service

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

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
