First Review by Ajolote

loved it - Edit

Just arrived in Rome, and found this little gem when we needed something quick.
I had the mushroom burger, it was absolutely delicious. Non vegan hubby enjoyed his as well.
Reasonably priced, no fancy stuff, just as we like it.
Can definitely recommend.

Pros: Reasonably priced, tasty, everything Vegan

Cons: none

Affordable, fast and really tasty - Edit

I had the vegan hamburger for only €5,9. It was a good, big burger. After that I had an amazing tiramisu tart for €3,9. Food is served very fast and you can eat in or take out. My omni boyfriend Who is hard to convince, enjoyed his wrap.

Pros: Amazing food , Good portions , I liked the owner

Cons: Seating could be a little more cosy

Highly recommended fast food - Edit

Sandwiches, wraps, salads, etc.. Everything we had, dessert included, was very well seasoned and warm. Small place so it was just one person on the register and one cooking food, but they did a fantastic job keeping up.

Pros: All vegan

Cons: Could use a larger space!

Great for a tasty treat. - Edit

Had the Big Smokey burger and loved it. Maybe could have been a bit more generous with the lettuce and tomato (one slice and a leaf) but the flavours were all there and the little Seitan chunks were epic.

Definitely recommend as a naughty treat.
Probably don't go just when they open after change over though... (730pm) the cook seemed flustered, maybe because of the picky/annoying American family who asked about 4000 questions and didn't bother reading the menu properly 😂

vegan junk food! tasty and filling - Edit

I got in once it was opened at noon. I had the smoky burger and a seitan focaccia sanwich, both delicious. i also had the cheesecake, not good. I suggest not getting the cheesecake. (when i was there, there were very few dessert choices. the fridge is almost empty)

Not so fast food - Edit

The food here is excellent, but the owner/cook was late to arrive. Another couple we ran into waiting on the step outside said they had been waiting half an hour since the store was supposed to open. Once it did open, the food was fast to be prepared but none of the dessert items/display case items were available. I got the vebab and my husband enjoyed the vegan foccacia so much he got a second one. I recommend it for the food that is available, but expect everything to run on italian time.

Pros: good food

Cons: unpredictable service

burgers are out of this world - Edit

We got there as the shop opened, and I had a soya burger and potato croquettes. The croquettes were very filling as they also have soya in them. The burger was phenomenal. I had cheesecake afterwards and just WOW. beautiful. Love everything about this place.

Pros: fast service, amazing food, manager is very friendly :)

Cons: no bathroom, no plain potato options

It was okay, I guess - Edit

We were starving when we entered Universo Vegano and boy, we were dissapointed! The menu does offer a wide selection of vegan food, but the outcome was greasy and the main flavour of the foods were just mayo or chilli sauce. I for one felt anything but energized after eating my vebab roll - although I'm not sure what I expected.

The chocolate cheesecake was okay, but it could have tasted more like chocolate - now it was just sweet and sugary. The creamy, nutty thing my husband had for dessert was okay, yet it had a weird savoury filling that tasted like turmeric. Not sure if that's just an Italian thing.

My main problem with the place was the lack of toilets. You'd think that a place serving greasy food like this would have a bathroom or even a place to wash your hands, but no.

We won't be coming back.

Pros: Loads of options to choose from, Vegan cakes

Cons: No toilet, Few places to sit, Greasy food, not that flavourful

great lunch stop - Edit

all vegan fast food place, we had wraps and soup - freshly made, great value, lots of choices - definitely recommended. It is more a fast food place than a restaurant, not a lot of seats and no toilet, probably better for lunch than dinner

Pros: excellent food, lots of choice, good value

Cons: no toilet!

Dessert heaven!! - Edit

Tried visiting on Friday but missed out by a few minutes! I wasn't going to go back but I'm SO GLAD I did! My boyfriend got the chocolate cheesecake and I got a cream/lemon cream dessert covered in nuts! They were so good I got another cheesecake to go! Wish i could have gone back to try the sandwiches but super happy with the desserts!

Delicious! - Edit

I've been visiting Rome with work for the last 12 years and always found it slightly limiting choice-wise for vegans. This little cafe is just great. Really nice big menu-salads, toasted sandwiches, wraps, desserts- and very friendly staff. They make the food for you whilst you wait. Fantastic fully vegan place- we need more like this!!

Pros: The perfect place for lunch, Great selection, Reasonably priced

burgers - Edit

Serves mainly burgers, wraps and sandwiches. Nothing extraordinary, but quite nice if you are in the area already and the desert cakes are sooo delicious!
Atmosphere fits more a lunch snack than a big dinner, staff is very friendly.

Fast food...it is what it is. - Edit

Fast and convenient, but not worth making a trip to. Lasagna and gnocchi were terrible. Wrap was pretty good.

Great Vegan Fast Food - Edit

Small sandwich place, similar to the Veggie Grill in the U.S., just smaller. Food is good and service is fast. It's a little hard to find, it's tucked away in a small street.

Pros: Good Food , Reasonable prices, Fast service

Cons: Small place, Limited hours

Would recommend - Edit

This is a great place if you want tasty fast food. The menu is extensive and offers sandwiches, burgers, falafel and desserts. The service is excellent and the owner is always in a happy mood. Every customer is greeted with a smile. The food is delicious and tastes very fresh. My favourite is the spicy sandwich. It is very good value for money too. I think I paid around €8 for a burger and a bottle of water. I would definitely recommend this place and I would visit again the next time I'm in Rome.

Pros: Good value for money, Excellent service

Cons: No toilet

excellent! - Edit

My boyfriend and I took a stop in here on our first day in Rome and we couldn't stop talking about it for the rest of the trip!
We got two of the daily specials, a vegetable paella and a pasta with ingredients from the south of Italy and both loved our dishes. The staff were super friendly too and made it an absolute pleasure. Prices were really great too, they had a lot of options on their completely vegan menu and even had a good few desserts. We both had the tiramisu - I still have dreams about it. A must for any vegan in Rome.

Disappointing - Edit

We were excited to visit Universo Vegano because they are completely vegan and have great reviews. Unfortunately they could not live up to the high expectations. We tried a quinoa&falafel wrap, the lasagne, and an apple pie.

The wrap was okay, for us it went too heavy on the salty cheese sauce which is just not our style, we prefer wraps with more lettuce/tomato/cucumber. It might just be the Italian/Roman style of thin, crispy wraps, grilled very flat with relatively little greenery, so maybe that is a personal thing.

The lasagne was unfortunately really bad. A very strange vague flavour, again too salty. The apple pie was okay, but nothing special.

The restaurant was extremely busy and appeared to be staffed by a single girl. Maybe we would have enjoyed the experience more if we had gotten some recommendations for dishes to try... though looking at the menu there didn't seem to be that much more which sounded interesting. Universo Vegano seems to have a lot of meat-imitations on their menu (typical for vegan fast food joints) which is not our taste.

Pros: Hot vegan fast food

Cons: Disappointing quality, Busy and limited seating, Focussed on meat imitations
