holy crap! - Edit

Yum. Yum. Yum. I dined in by myself and found myself talking to myself (and mostly moaning ooh and aah) as I joyfully threw the entire pizza into my mouth! The vegan mozzarella was out of this world. It blew my mind. Within minutes, I had downed the entire pizza. The lady who served me was amazing. I was the only person in the restaurant. One litre of water, a vegan pizza and a cake cost me €19.50. It was worth every penny. I can't wait to go back and indulge some more. The BEST vegan pizza I've ever eaten. The dough was slightly charred from the wood fire and just the right balance of chewy and crunchy. There were plenty of vegan options on the menu including pasta, pizza, salad, calzone and the famous fried Napoli pizzas. This is also one Street back from the Duomo so easy to find. Worth 5 stars.

Pros: vegan cheese, loads of vegan options

amazing vegan pizzas - Edit

We went here with a group of 4 vegans and had the most amazing service and good. The owners daughter is vegan so despite being traditional napolese pizza he understands veganism and plant cheeses etc.

We started with a plant based cheese platter and then shared 2 vegan pizzas and a vegan calzone. Safe to say nothing was left on the table. We finished with Vegan Canoli for desert. Enjoyed with a beautiful bottle of red wine.

Can not recommend more! I would rate 5 stars but the app won't let me

Pros: not too busy, great service and traditional , home style cooking and service feel

Cons: nothing

best pizza, veggies and service - Edit

This has got to be the best pizza I've ever had! The owner is from Naples which explains the perfect crust & sauce. But even the vegan cheese was awesome. My husband isn't vegan and it was his favorite too and even he can't wait to go back. We also had the sautéed spinach and it tasted so fresh and was plentiful & delicious! We were served by the owner's daughter who couldn't be more informative and delightful. It was a great first night in Florence!

Pros: food quality & flavors, sweet, friendly service

Vegan food and friendly owners - Edit

Lots of vegan options including vegan cheeses and vegan sausage. We had a vegan pizza and a vegan cannelloni. The food was really nice but the main attraction was the welcoming nature of the owners. Definitely recommended if you're looking for vegan food in Florence. We went twice in one day!

Pros: Vegan food, Vegan cheese, Welcoming owners

Definitely Recommend - Edit

My boyfriend and I stopped in here hungry today and were not disappointed. Staff was friendly and immediately asked if we were vegan. There were tons of clearly marked options which was a relief after being to a few restaurants in Florence where that wasn't the case. I had a (massive) vegan calzone and my boyfriend had the vegan gnocchi and loved it. Had an amazing cannoli and a soy cappuccino for dessert.

Pros: Variety of choice, Friendly staff

Awesome pizza and hospitality - Edit

What a gem! Delicious vegan and conventional pizza that made the whole family happy after a long morning at Uffizi! Many delicious options and a good value. My daughter was thrilled to have so many choices. And the owner was so welcoming!

5 stars - amazing - Edit

Would give it 5 stars if Happy Cow allowed it (it sells non-vegan food too). When we arrived the owner asked "vegan?", I said yes and she cheered! She couldn't wait to talk me through all the vegan meals when we sat down. We also got complementary bread. The vegan pizza and salami/cheese board was incredible. Would've gone back if we were in Venice longer 👍

Pros: affordable, so much to choose from, delicious

Cons: none!

5 stars really - Edit

I'd like to give it more than 4 stars for the welcome alone. The owner greeted us warmly, asked if anyone was vegan and chit chatted with us. The food arrived very quickly and was delicious. The pizza was thin and crispy with a chewy crust, the vegan cheese a nice touch dotted on top of the spinach. We also ordered a "massive salad" and that is exactly what we got and more. It was loaded with chickpea and mixed greens. The owners daughter Filomena came by and chat which was also lovely. The atmosphere here is so welcoming it is like you've walked into their house. The vegan cheese, sausage and cakes are made for them by a vegan chef. Please go and check this place out. It will be worth your time.

Pros: Incredible hospitality, lots of vegan options incl

best pizza in Italy! - Edit

Great location. One street from church of Santa Croce and short walk from Piazza Michelangelo. I would definitely give this place 5 stars if HappyCow allowed non-veg places to get that score.

We ordered the cheese and salami platter to share and it was the best thing I've ever tasted. I think they use vegusto cheese and it has a spicy/sweet sauce alongside that was fantastic. We tried to eat it as slow as possible to savour that flavour! We also received some complimentary bread.

I had the vegan cheese margarita which blew my mind. I hate fresh tomato so the relief when I saw the tomato sauce/cheese combo was immense. It was perfect in every way. My partner had the vegan calzone and said it was great as well.

We got a slice of vegan desert to take away and ate later which wasn't so good but the appetiser and main exceeded any expectation we had so it didn't matter.

The staff were lovely and happy to speak to us in English. Plus drinks for around €40.

Pros: so many options

Cons: desert was a little underwhelming

Vegan Options - Edit

We didn't go the restaurant but ordered online using deliveroo. Delivery came on time. We got a vegan pizza each and a shared vegan coccoli e nutella, which is like a fried doughnut. My pizza was ok, just ordered a vegan margherita, not a cheese I had tried before but it was fine. I think because we got delivery the base had got a little more chewy than I would have liked. I tried the coccoli but only an hour later as I wasn't hungry enough first time. The flavour was nice but again I should have tried these fresh as by the time I had them they were very very chewy and not soft at all.

Pros: Lots of options, Delivers online

Cons: Dough is chewy

A must-go for vegans in Florence! - Edit

A little weird to find as the map shows it slightly farther down the road. No biggie. Very excited to see so many vegan options at a place that seems like such an authentic Italian restaurant. Menu has English translations. Staff speaks English.

We got the bruschetta and polenta apps and enjoyed them both. The bruschetta had tons of flavor. The polenta was a bit salty, but still good. We also had the vegan calzone and vegetable pizza with vegan mozzarella. Again, both were great! Wish the pizza had tomato sauce and was pre-cut, but I guess that's the Italian style? The calzone was HUGE and extremely tasty.

We ended with dessert...basically a doughnut with sugar and chocolate sauce. It was pretty good, but also a little too salty. Also, by that point we already had so much bread we were about to explode.

Total price: €35. Very reasonable. Would have been full and satisfied with just the pizza and calzone.

Highly recommended for vegans visiting Florence!

the best choice for vegans in Florence! - Edit

I'm really glad I discovered this restaurant here. If you want something very tipical Italian and you're vegan this is a must. The owner is very friendly and knows about veganism. Vegan and vegetarian are clearly labelled on the menu. The vegan cheese they use is amazing! I even bought some to bring home. The also offer a vegan cheese plate as a starter.

Pros: very good quality food, traditional food, many vegan options

Cons: closed on Mondays
