A Vegan-Friendly Way To Roman Eateries from Mark Spector's blog

What does a vegan eater do when the local specialities include organ meats, cured swine, veal, cured eggs, and pecorino cheese? Jokes apart, food always comes first when you’re thinking about things to do in Rome

Good news: plant-based food has quickly gained traction in Italy; by 2022, 8% of the country's population will identify as vegetarian or vegan. The nation's most daring chefs have answered the call with wildly creative, crazily tasty vegan dishes.

This is our list of the best vegan eateries in Rome.

  • Romeow Cat Bistrot

Romeow Cat Bistrot, which is tucked away in a bleak corner of Ostiense, is a quirky haven. When diners try unusual delicacies like seitan fajitas or Gragnano spaghetti with macadamia nutmentortok pepper, and bergamot zest, well-fed cats may be seen wandering the bi-level boho-style eating area.

  • Col Cavolo

According to the sign at the register, if we're not out front, we're cooking for you. You're lucky! When seeking a quick bite, you can't beat this little, vibrant vegan nook close to Villa Borghese.

  • Ops!

Ops, which is only a block from Col Cavolo, is the best option if you're in a hurry or just in the mood for a wide variety of options in a straightforward yet comfortable atmosphere. The popular buffet-style restaurant offers a variety of cuisine with Italian and other influences, and you may pay for it by weight. The spaghetti is exceptionally well-loved.

  • Nativa

Chic Nativa is a little out of the way in Baldo degli Ubaldi, close to the Vatican City but the trip is worthwhile due to its clean white surroundings and inventive New Italian and fusion food. Avoid skipping the pasta with pistachio sauce and yellow cherry tomatoes or the veggie and brown rice arancini.

  • Le Bistrot

Since 1987, this quaint, charming osteria in Garbatella has been a refuge for vegan foodies, serving inventive New Italian cuisine like paccheri pasta with lentil ragù cooked with only locally sourced, in-season ingredients. Check the website before you go because the menus are subject to weekly modification. only available for supper.

  • Grezzo Chocolates

When thinking about things to do in Rome, don’t forget to try out chocolates. Grezzo, which translates to "raw" or "unrefined" in Italian, is a 100% vegan boutique business with sites close to bustling transportation hubs including Termini Station and Largo di Torre Argentina.

  • Rifugio Romano

Pizza and outstanding "fritti" antipasti are among the many vegan options available on the vast vegan menu at Rifugio Romano, which is undoubtedly the best vegan experience in all of Rome. Although they may not be exact replicas of the authentic dishes, the vegan cacio e pepe and the pasta alla carbonara with smoked seitan are deliciously near.

You can take Rome tours from a reputable service provider and can enjoy these foods.
