Nice Pizza & Pasta

There are a few vegan Menus and as always you can ask to get a pizza without cheese. We had some Gnocci‘s and a Pizza and both menu‘s were pretty amazing. It‘s not too expensive and the waitresses were very friendly.

Pros: Vegan Options, Good Gnoccis

Okay pizza, misleading menu

We were excited to try the vegan options which were presented on the menu outside of the restaurant, only to find out that they don't serve them. The menu inside had only two vegan options, which were decent. You can basically choose from salad, pasta with tomato sauce, or pizza without the cheese but at the same price. We ordered bruschetta which never arrived. The atmosphere was pretty hectic and very loud, and some glasses broke, which can happen, but just seemed to fit right in.

The menu is marked with vegan or vegetarian logo, very well described.
Penne with olive and vegetable as well as pizza with porcini mushroom are very good.
Mix salad was very simple, no taste.

Pros: Vegan logo on menu, Good food

Cons: Slow service, full restaurant, Simple mix salad

Pretty good

The food is pretty good, though not a ton of vegan options when I went. The service was not great and it’s always super busy as it’s right off the main piazza.

Vegan not vegan

All vegan dishes are marked with a vegan „V“, which does not mean it is vegan. Although marked with a vegan „V“ and additional note from me that I want to order the risotto vegan it came with cheese. The risotto with porcini mushrooms and chestnuts was from the seasonal menu. And I think the service also does not know the difference between vegan and vegetarian. I am disappointed.

Great pizzas!

Staff was very friendly and helpful when we said we didn’t want any cheese in our pizza. Marinara was very garlicky, just how I like it and 13 CHF sounds very good to me! The pizza dough is very thin and crispy yum yum

Must go

Our server was so amazing and served us in true Italian style. Our pizza and gnocchi were both prepared with egg free ingredients and they understood what we wanted very well. A taste of Italy in Lugano with a great restaurant staff. In fact, I didn’t have as many great pizzas in Italy. I highly recommend vegetarians to come here.

Pros: Great staff, Many vegetarian/vegan options, Reasonable

Typical italian on the plaza

This huge Italian restaurant offers a good selection of vegan dishes plus another few that are seasonally available. All are marked using a V in the menu. The main feature, though, is the outside seating at a busy but quiet plaza in the middle of town. NOTE: Their web site is unreliable but they're in business.
