Good homemade food

The place is the first and only vegan restaurant in Messina, a reality to support for sure. The staff was incredibly sweet and the food quite good.

Esperienza positiva!

Il locale è piccolo e tranquillo e a due passi dalla stazione.
Io ed il mio amico abbiamo passato una serata in pace mangiando cibo molto buono, così buono che è piaciuto pure a lui nonostante fosse il suo primo assaggio di cibo completamente vegano. Ci ritorneremo senza dubbio

Pros: Qualità e freschezza del cibo, Semplicità dei piatti, Combinazione dei sapori

My fav vegan place in town

I live in Messina and this is my go-to place for delicious vegan bowls, sandwiches, brioche and desserts.

Menu changes everyday, everything is fresh and homemade and tastes great. And ghey provide microfiltered water too.

Also great position, just a few steps away from the train and bus station and a short walk from the cruise terminal and the city centre.
100% recommended!

Pros: Delicious food, Clean, quiet

Delicious and delightful!

My husband and I just had the most delicious and delightful dinner at Vegan e Veg! The food was all local, organic and very tasty! The restaurant owner is extremely committed to supporting and sustaining the local island farming economy and sharing the message of all things plants! Additionally she is a fine chef.
We feel so lucky that we discovered this wonderful restaurant on our first stop through Sicily!

Pros: Wide variety of plants., Great service., Lots of food.

Unfortunately somewhat disappointing

 After all the reviews here, I was unfortunately a bit disappointed. I had really imagined something different. I had Travegzzino with hummus, salt and saitan. Unfortunately, there were two slices of grey bread, which were not toasted. Also, unfortunately, the food was very bland and could have used some spice. The local beer, however, was very tasty.

Pros: Veganes Essen , Das Konzept an sich

Cons: Das Brot war nicht getoastet , Fade im Geschmack , Doch recht teuer für das Essen


13 May 2023

Unfortunately you didn't ask us to toast your travegzzino , why?About our food , we have a mediterranean Natural cooking style, so our food Is not spiced but flouverd with olive oil and our typical aromatic erbs: garlic, onion, rosemary,sage,basil,Mint, parsley, laurel, celery, Red chilli pepper. Maybe you weee looking for oriental food?

Fresh and healthy

There are three basic meals(Buddha bowl, sandwich and something I forgot 😅) which are changing the ingredients they made of by the daily delivery of the local farmer. Super nice concept, fresh and healthy food.
Bit confusing the way menu is made but we worked it out

Pros: Fresh ingredients

Great food

We went here on our way to the south. While the food was really good, I was a bit disappointed by the service.

We parked the car in a nearby parking (5€ first hour).

They have several options and the offer is very interesting and fresh. The service is fast, as everything is already cooked.

I had a salat, vegan burger (chickpea-based) and pasta. And a cake for desert. Everything was delicious.

Nonetheless the staff seemed kind of rude to me. I did not feel welcome. Based on all previous reviews here this seems to be my very personal experience and perhaps a very particular day (maybe not their best). You should go regardless, food is very good.

What felt strange to me:

At some point I had to ask if I had said something wrong, but she said that everything was OK. Some of the things that seem strange to me:

- The way the menu works seemed non-standard to me, so I had to ask several times. Plus the menu was in Italian, so I had some questions. It felt as if they were annoyed by me when I was asking. Probably I asked more than once, but it had been a long day driving.
- The menu was on WhatsApp Catalogue, and did not show up very structured on my phone (that seem to be a WhatsApp issue), so I was confused at times on which dishes qualified for a menu combo they had. Again, they seemed annoyed whenever I asked.
- I asked for their personal recommendations and they were unable to propose anything. They went like ‘anything you want’, ‘depends’ etc. I tried asking twice, but no luck.
- An older couple came after us, and they explained everything in careful detail to them. I could tell how kinder they were to them. They were also tourists. It felt to me as if they were worth their kindness because they were older and we were couple of youngers.
- They had some problems (not their fault, probably bank’s) with the TPV when we were trying to pay. Took like 5 min. It was not their fault at all, but once it worked they did not say ‘sorry’ or not even a ‘ciao’. They just waited for me to pay, that was it.

A lovely little spot

Our experience here was very much in line with what other people have said before; a lovely little cafe with a few outdoor shaded high tables, genuine local handcrafted food and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Messina. Tip: about a 10 minute walk from the cruise terminal (if you visit Messina by ship).

Pros: local, handcrafted dishes, extremely helpful staff

Cucina genuina, fresca e gustosa

Sono stata ieri sera a cena e sono rimasta piacevolmente colpita da tutto: dal locale curato e carinissimo, dalla gentilezza del personale e ovviamente dalla cucina. Particolarità: ogni giorno c’è qualcosa di fresco, in quanto la proprietaria ha scelto di non avere il congelatore proprio perché tutto quello che viene cucinato non debba essere avanzato o fare sprechi. Ogni giorno riceve da contadini e fornitori piccoli verdura fresca e con questa realizza cose veramente strepitose. Ogni volta che passerò in futuro da Messina ci tornerò

Delicious vegan food in a eco-friendly place

What a nice place! We were couple of minutes too early but welcome. We could make our own composition of lots of delicious food. We also had nice vegan wine. The lady was very helpful in English and gave us lots of information about vegan wine on Sicily and restaurants in Catania. A pity it's only open for a couple of hours.

Local, organic and vegan!

This is maybe the best spot on the whole island to get some healthy, nutritous and wholesome food! The menu is set on a day to day basis depending on what the farmers bring in. Now how about that!! Food is fresh and flavours are great. Highly recommended.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Local and organic, Super friendly service - in English

I arrived before they opened and the lady opened for me anyway and was very helpful with deciding what to have. It was tasty and most was locally sourced and bio as well. I had a selection of 3 different options and all were flavorsome and reminded me of home cooked food (which is amazing as I'm travelling for 9 months)
