Lots of great options

The food was delicious, everyone in our group enjoyed their meal. Great for a mixed group. Two vegan daily specials, including wild mushroom pizza with nondairy cheese and a vegan ravioli. Lots of vegetarian items on the regular menu such as eggplant parmigiana, smoked mozzarella, and eggplant rigatoni, pizza, etc. etc. Delicioso!

Pros: Vegan and vegetarian options , Food taste and quality , Good for a mixed group

Vegan Ravioli is Amazing!

I went here two nights before the Boston Marathon and was so delighted they had vegan ravioli. It was delicious! I went back two nights later and tried their vegan pizza special as well. It was also good.

Pros: Quality of vegan options, Reasonably priced

Cons: Only two options

Excellent North End Restaurant with Vegan Options

Large family group came here after my daughter's graduation. I had mentioned being vegan when making the reservation and the person indicated that I should just mention it when we arrived and that the chef would come out and discuss options. The owner/chef did greet us early during our stay and recommended the vegan ravioli, which I ordered. The zoodles on top were a nice touch and the pomodoro sauce was great . The other menu option was a mushroom pizza. The chef also offered to cook a pasta dish with vegetables w/ the pomodoro sauce. I was the only vegan in the group, and everyone else enjoyed themselves tremendously. They do offer veal, which someone in my paty ordered😒
One funny thing that might annoy some - they brought an unordered dessert for the table as a "surprise" because it was my daughter's graduation. Donut holes with gelato. I couldn't eat it, of course. When I checked the bill, though, they had charged us for it!

Pros: Multiple good vegan options, Very friendly service, Entrees priced reasonably for type of restaurant

Cons: Veal on menu, Wine prices were high, Gratuity added to check

Healthy vegan options

This restaurant is not only beautiful but they had exclusively vegan options that were healthy and delicious. I’ve been to a few Italian restaurants in the north end and had to resort to a plain salad or pasta with marinara sauce which is not very exciting. It was a pleasure to dine out and have excellent vegan dishes to choose from.

Great place to eat in the north end

This has been the only restaurant in the North end that actually has a specifically labeled dishes for a vegan. The owner greeted us and after I thanked him for this he mentioned this app. The ravioli was great and I'm happy they are conscious of food restrictions. Would rate 5 stars if possible

Pros: Has two vegan dishes that were labeled, Great staff

Cons: Pricey

Personable Chef

The chef came and spoke with us at the table and was sharing all of the dishes he could prepare vegan. The vegan ravioli was very well portioned and the sauce was incredible. The waitstaff was also beyond sweet and accommodating. The meal was wonderful overall, but the bread beforehand is not vegan as it contains egg.

I did not know that the bread had egg. I should have asked - they knew that I was vegan and didn't say anything.

Very Good

I saw people upset about the price. I think it’s to be expected to the North End on the Main Street.

They do have vegan ravioli which we thought were very good. You only got four, but they were very big. They also do vegan pizza with vegan cheese. Neither are on the menu, but they do have them. We also got the Italian Chopped Salad without the meat and cheese. It was very good.

The table bread was not vegan.

The server we had was very knowledgeable about the vegan food.

Too pricey

$30 for a plate of 4 ravioli, spiralized zucchini and a chopped asparagus. The total plus tip was nearly $40. Sorry but this is a touristy ripoff even if the food was delicious and the service was great. If you order drinks it will be even more. The bread has egg so we couldn’t enjoy it. We just had water and the plate of food. And this was supposed to be the large portion! Don’t waste your $ here.

Cons: Totally overpriced

I came here on a Friday night. They had valet parking. The menu has a vegan ravioli that comes with zucchini and asparagus noodles. It was a great and flavorful vegan ravioli dish. They have some salads that you can customize too! Very good and worth the price.

Pros: Vegan options, Fancy

Cons: Expensive
