Not many options, but good food! - Edit

The veg and vegan options are clearly labeled. The food that was vegan all tasted very good, and pricing was good. Would recommend!

Amazing Tuscany food - Edit

This is a nice trattoria with traditional Tuscany dishes. Vegan options are clearly marked so it’s easy to choose. We had Pappa al pomodoro, Ribollita and a really good pasta. The waitress also recommended vegan lemon and sage sorbet and it was delicious.

Pros: Delicious food, Clearly marked vegan options, Cozy place

Wasn’t horrible - Edit

My partner and I had the pesto vegan pasta and the seitan ragu pasta, both of which were very average. Just super bland and boring flavors and very undercooked pasta. Not bad but nothing to rave about honestly.

Pros: A few vegan options , Centrally located

Good Italian food - Edit

We had lunch here, it’s a traditional Italian restaurant with meat dishes, but veggie and vegan items clearly marked. They had 3 vegan pasta dishes, we had the zucchini pesto penne and the spaghetti with spicy tomato sauce(it wasn’t spicy though-which the waitress warned me about). We also had the sautéed chard. Generous amounts of olive oil. Vegan bread served with meal. Nice waitress.No vegan desert (except fruit). Nice to finally have a vegan meal in a traditional Italian restaurant after being in Italy for 2 weeks. Good value.

Pros: 3 vegan pasta options., Nice atmosphere

Cons: Good value., No vegan protein (seitan, tofu, etc) on menu.

Good restaurant for a mixed group - Edit

I had the toasted bread with Tuscan beans to start, which was gorgeous with olive oil and black pepper. Then had the gnocchi which was really good. Wouldn’t have found this gem if our travel agent hadn’t reserved us a table for our first night in Florence.

Pros: Vegan options clearly marked, Clean, Friendly staff

Fantastic Vegan Options - Edit

What a relief to find a family-owned authentic Italian resto with many vegan options denoted on the menu! I had bean soup, penne with pesto and black cabbage with a side of chicory. Healthy and delicious.

Pros: Many vegan options, Delicious food and totally fresh and authentic. , Great service and reasonably priced.

Selection of dishes available, but nothing special - Edit

A good place to visit if dining with a non-vegan. Plenty of clearly labelled vegan options on their menu including: a vegan salad (€8), 4 soups (€7), wholewheat pasta in a ragu of seitan (€9), penne pasta with asparagus & cherry tomato (€8.50), spaghetti in a spicy tomato sauce (€8), seasoned vegetables stewed with soy bits (€10), various sides (steamed vegetables, grilled vegetables, white beans, swiss chard, potatoes, salad). Dessert: fresh fruit salad (€4.50). Cover charge: €2 per person. (Many restaurants in Florence include a cover charge in the bill.)

Overall - a good selection of dishes, but presentation was poor. I got the seasoned vegetables stewed with soy bits - but I would describe it as very well cooked vegetables with a chopped up soya burger. Nothing to shout about, but great to be able to eat out with an omnivore. The staff were warm and helpful and had great English.

Bad - Edit

The main course was nice, there weren't a tos of option but it was tasty. The dessert was the problem, I ordered a Chesnut cake with "soy" ice cream.
It turned out to be regular ice-cream so just be careful and ask everything! Maybe it was just that day but it turned out to stain the whole experience.

Cons: hard to find, food marked wrong

By far my fave so far - Edit

So many marked up vegan options, lovely atmosphere, pleasant staff (who speak perfect English, if that sways it), and food is healthy and fresh. I enjoyed a wholesome gnocchi in squash sauce with a side of steamed veg.

Pros: cosy, lots of options, friendly staff

Cons: I don’t live here

Proper Italian food - Edit

First thing - Happy cow sent us to the wrong end of the street and I had to use another review to find it. If you're walking to v. Faenza from v. Bernado Cennini, turn right on Faenza, not left.
I went here with omni friends and it was perfect for that as it had good options for everyone. Vegan options marked clearly and was proper good Italian food - not just salads cobbled together so they can market themselves as catering to vegans.
I had a gnocchi style pasta with seitan and tomato sauce and it was amazing. It felt like authentic Italian food with a lot of care put into it.

Pros: Very tasty, Clearly-marked for vegans

Cons: None

Lovely place - Edit

I was staying near the restaurant and decided to have dinner there one evening after a long day of walking - and as Il Vegano was closed for their holidays during my stay (until the 12th Sep). Staff were really friendly and knowledgeable about vegan foods (there are a few vegan influences apparently :))

Had Tuscan breaded bean soup, which was comforting and wholesome, followed by a grape tart, which had the perfect balance between sweet and bitter, no need for ice-cream/cream (as we would probably do in the UK) as the sprinkling of icing sugar on top was perfect. I don't normally have dessert but this was really good.

Sat inside as outside was full but atmosphere is nice inside as well. Certainly wasn't the only vegan in the restaurant that night, which was good to see! And really good for the restaurant as well.

Pros: Tasty, wholesome good, good portions, Knowledgeable staff with very good English skills, Location (for me anyway!) and atmosphere

A-mazing!!! - Edit

Omg! Favorite dining experience of our italy trip. They staff is super sweet and when we said we are vegan they offered great choice of on and off menu dishes. All equally amazing. Fresh and so local. The soups you just want to keep eating and the pasta is exactly like when we visit local friends in Florence

Tasteless food - Edit

Food was very disappointing. Tasteless over cooked pasta that was drowning in olive oil. They kept giving us small baskets of bread, which they charged us €2 per basket for! Especially with the food being so disappointing and the small, it wasn't particularly cheap and definitely not worth it. Better to just order a pizza marinara at a non-vegan restaurant than to go here just because they have marked vegan options...
