First Review by Semiconductor

Pretty good! - Edit

I got the falafel wrap, and subbed out the vegan mayo for hummus instead. I was expecting a more traditional falafel, and although what I got was good, it reminded me more of a fried veggie nugget. Definitely more of a "junk food" vegan spot. It was decent and priced fairly (although bring you own drink - I got charged over 3 euro for a small bottle of iced tea). The menu was huge though with tons of options, and dessert choices! There is definitely something for everyone, and good if you're on a budget. Always nice to see vegan places doing well!

Pros: Big menu

Great place - Edit

When we got in we sat at a table with a huuuge menu (I think it'd be better to cut that down by a couple of pages or separate in lunch/dinner?) but when we were ready to order we got an English menu with the options checked that they could serve there, and that was much less. A bit strange, they should've told earlier. My boyfriend had the burger which was allright and I had a foccacia with a burger that I really liked. Friendly staff, low prices, definitely a recommendation when in Florence!!

Lecker aber zu kleine Portionen - Edit

Die Lasagne war zwar sehr lecker aber leider war die Portion relativ klein.

Loved this place - Edit

Not much to say about his little corner restaurant. There's not a ton of seating. The plot of land across the street isn't exactly easy on the eye. And the menu is a bit overwhelming.
Still, everything about our visit was amazing. Great service. Delicious meals (maybe the best vegan burger I've ever had). Fair prices.
If you're anywhere near this restaurant make a point of going.

Pros: Good food, Friendly people, Good value

Cons: Not much seating

Très bonne surprise - Edit

Chaîne de fast food vegan de bonne qualité. Les plats sont bons et d'une grande diversité (pizza, burger, salade, pâtes, lasagnes, nuggets etc) pour un prix raisonnable. Le personnel est sympathique et attentionné. Possibilité de manger à l'extérieur sur une rue agréable. N'ayant jamais été dans une chaîne de fast food vegan j'ai été très agréablement surprise !

Pros: Tout est vegan

A haven in the city - Edit

Excellent chain of vegan fast food. Tried in Milan and was pleased to find the same restaurant in Florence. After a day of walking the length of the city this was a welcome break from the typical cafes. Especially the green juice and vegan cold cuts! Delicious. Great prices and very lovely staff.

Pros: Tasty healthy food, Consistent menu , Friendly staff

Cons: In a quiet area

Awesome burgers! - Edit

Lots of options but I feel like we came at the wrong time.... Sunday afternoon when only certain things were available off the menu. Really wanted to give 5 stars because the patties and cheese were really good but the salad was a bit old and not very fresh - again probably because of timing.

Pros: fully vegan, lots of options

Cons: not as fresh as it could have been and a little co

awesome Italian chain - Edit

This place is a chain but always of awesome quality. The menu indicates low-gluten dishes throughout and the English menu superbly describes all of their offerings in detail. I had the Risotto, side potatoes, and then a cake at the end. Both their low-gluten and standard desserts are unbelievable.

Worst vegan food - Edit

I went to universo vegano few days ago, based on reviews, and cmon you guys who have them a 5 star??????
I got a dead frozen microwaved fungi lasagna, You'll taste it after the first bite.
It's a chain. The menu has quite a few options, maybe the salad is great and you should try it instead, but I ain't going back!
The staff was friendly and I liked the vegamiaú tho...

Pros: Location , Staff

Cons: Food, Price

Good food! worth a visit - Edit

The food is great. I am giving 4 stars only because I'm comparing it to the other vegan chain in Florence, VegyDays. The other one is equally as delicious but a bit cheaper and more seating space/more inviting. If you only have a chance to go to one while in Florence, I'd go to the other one. If you have the time I'd try them both out.

OMG HORRIBLE!! - Edit

First the attitude of staff is horrible! They rolled their eyes at me etc, then they gave me cutlery wrapped in USED napkin?!? The meal, which i paid 8 eur was disgusting !! The quinoa burger was tasteless, felt old and hard, and the salad was UNWASHED!!! Can u believe??
And i paid prior to eating (they asked me to) so i wasn't even able to refuse the payment. Terrible.
NEVER ever go there!
I will attach two photos, one where u can see the dirty napkin and one where u can see the dirt in the salad! And there was much more dirt.

P.s.
I registered to Happy cow just to be able to write this review even though i have been using the app and before website for years, thats how BAD it was!

Cons: dirty, horrible atritude, tastless

Pros: great tastes of food, was prepared quickly

Cons: staff, a little rude, didn't have everything for drinks and were out of

OMGGG eat here immediately - Edit

Another amazing Italian vegan "fast food" chain - so good we went two days in a row! I had the Big Burger and Truffle Royale platters (comes with rosemary potatoes & garden salad), and they were incredible. Hubby had gnocchi and penne, he raved as well! 👌 Owner super friendly and helpful. Must go if in Florence - why can't we have chains like this in Canada?!

Best meal in Venice - Edit

I can't even begin to explain how great this restaurant was - if only there were chains like this in England. Such an extensive menu with tonnes to choose from, all inexpensive and the seating outside was lovely (you can sit inside if you prefer). The first time we popped in just for a cheesecake quite late at night, but went back 2 nights later for a full meal. We both had the mushroom truffle burger with rosemary potatoes, mushroom crudités, nuggets and vegan mayo and we tried a couple of the desserts. Try anything - you will not be disappointed.

Pros: Affordable, SO MUCH to choose from, Didn't want the food to end!

Cons: Nothing

Most Vegan Options I've Ever Seen - Edit

Regrettably we only went here after lunch for a cake. Their menu is huge, so many options from burgers, pasta, pizza, hotdogs, salads, sandwiches, wraps, soups, and of course lots of cakes. The cakes we ordered were very good, and they do have boxes so you can take them away.

Pros: So many options!
