Not vegan anymore:(

The pappardelle tartufo is not vegan anymore. It now has cream and cheese in it. I had the pasta last year and it was delicious, was looking forward to getting it again:/

The best pasta!

I love this place! The pasta there was so delicious and the portion was huge, definitely recommend. It is a good idea to book in advance since it's very full in the evening.

Limited vegan options

The menu online had way more options for vegans than the menu we were handed. Had the mushroom truffle pasta, it was ok, but seriously lacked salt. We were able to modify the bruschetta to have as a starter, it was fine but not great. Service was fine and its an ok place to eat if eating in a group

Pros: Was able to have vegan pasta, Can modify, Nice service

Cons: Few choices, No aircon

Wouldn't recommend

Ordered the labelled vegan pasta and my stomach was in bits the following day. In a way if i had accidentally had dairy. The staff were also very slow and rude to my party

Lovely little Italian

Really atmospheric Italian nestled in the bustling back streets of Alicante, super friendly staff, good amount of vegetarian and vegan options and they are happy to modify dishes if need be. I had the spaghetti with tomorrow and chilli and it was delicious, lovely fresh garlic bread too - I meant to take photos of my meal before I started it but I was hungry and it looked really good. This is one I’d happily come back to.

Pros: Fresh food and perfectly cooked, Nice and atmospheric indoors, Good portions for the money for the area

Cons: If your outside the street can be busy, Small inside so you might need to book

Good and not really good

Really good tasty truffle oil / ”champignon” pasta, first visit.
Second visit, same dish not a trace of truffle oil but plenty of champignons. Two totally different experiences. Nice location, nice staff.

Pros: Staff, location

Five vegan pasta options ( 3 on main menu, 2 on chefs specials

Not loads of options but still some choice. The bruschetta can be made vegan without the cheese. Four pasta dishes that are clearly labelled vegan. Lovely atmosphere both indoor and outdoor seating

Nice spot for dinner

I came here via happy cow, I was surprised to see they had even more vegan options in person than on the menus I’d seen on here! I had a penne arrabiata and it was a classic, but very good!

Pros: A few vegan options, marked as such, Friendly staff, Good portion sizes

Süßes italienisches Restaurant

Ein schönes italienisches Restaurant, welches bereits ab 12:30 Uhr geöffnet hat. Die Auswahl veganer Speisen begrenzt sich auf drei. Wenn man bei Bruschetta Classic den Parmesan weglässt kommt man auf 4. Der Preis für die Nudeln ist angemessen, der für die Bruschetta allerdings in keinem Szenario.

Pros: Gute Lage und freundlicher Service, Für Hunde steht ein Wassernapf bereit, Plätze draußen

Cons: Bruschetta Classic viel zu teuer, Kein Wasser inkudiert, Nur 3 vegane Gerichte

Vegan options / Willing to cater for vegans

We had some lunch at Spiga which was really enjoyable and tasty. There are a couple of vegan pasta dishes on the menu (highlighted as Vegan) and they were also happy to prepare a Marinara pizza with rocket and olives. Food was top notch, as was the service.

Pros: Vegan options on the menu , Willing to cater / flexible for Vegans

Okay but limited

I was a little apprehensive about going here as it seemed from the online menu there was one option and that included truffle oil.
There were two other options, aglio e olio and arrabbiata which I got. I started with a tomato pizza bread which was okay. The pasta was over seasoned and lacked any bite. The tomato sauce had cherry tomatoes in which was nice touch.
My two star is based on the limited options. As with any Italian it takes very little to creat vegan options and there are plenty of vegan options that would appeal to meat eaters as well. I asked about the pasta, the fresh pasta does include egg but the basics like penne and spaghetti do not. Friendly staff. If you fancy a bowl of pasta this is a decent option. If you want to have some choice this isn’t for you.

Pros: Staff

Cons: Limited

Enjoyable pasta

The options for vegans were limited, but the pasta dish that was available was very good (creamy mushroom sauce). Good beer and wine options. Pizza available for milk-eating friends (please do a vegan one!)

Middle-ing priced - about 10 euro for my main dish.

Pros: Ambiance, What was vegan was delicious

Cons: Only a few vegan options

Visited Alicante in a large group, most of whom aren't vegan, so Spiga was a fair compromise. Three decent vegan pasta options available, I had the pappardelle and the bruschetta, both of which were very nice. Definitely worth a visit if the dedicated vegan and vegetarian restaurants aren't open

Not a real vegan food

In the menu there are 3 vegan options for pasta. However after we asked waiter, if there is egg in the ribbon pasta, waiter told us that their fresh pasta contain eggs. He told us that we can order truffle pasta with panne or spaghetti cause these two do not contain egg. We will never come back to this restaurant again.

Cons: Not many pure vegan options

Good food but messed up order

x 2 bruschetta, tasted great but then we had to wait for one meal to arrive, a little annoying but otherwise good food and good customer service (apart from the mix up)

Pros: 3 Vegan pasta options, Good option for a nice evening dinner

Cons: Could have vegan cheese for vegan pizzas?

Good food, great service

Food tastes fresh and is really good. Pasta is perfectly al dente. I had the penne arrabiata and the tomato sauce is good. Not as spicy as you'd expect but still savory. Service just the right amount of attentiveness. Check in periodically but not overbearing. Nice outside seating area in between buildings so plenty of shade on a hot day.

Pros: Vegan and vegetarian options, Nice outside seating , Friendly, helpful staff

Life Saving

I went to Alicante for a day trip and was looking at only vegan restaurants. Since all of them seemed to be closed during afternoon I had to find another place to eat. I had Bruschetta without cheese for starters and the Truffle Pasta for Main, both were very delicious! They don‘t have soo many options on their menu, but at least they put an effort to label the vegan ones! Staff was nice
