Your Guide to Eating Vegan in Italy is Coming!

Veggie-Lover's Guide to Eating Vegan in Italy

Italy is a place that's very dear to my heart. One of the things I love most about it is definitely the food, but unfortunately Italian food is woefully misunderstood outside of Italy.

Pizza is seen as unhealthy junk food.

It's assumed that everything is smothered in cheese, so Italy must not be vegan-friendly.

So many travellers worry that they won't find anything to eat as a vegan in Italy, or that by sticking to a vegan lifestyle or plant-based diet they will be missing out on part of the Italian experience. Which is why....

I'm writing a vegan guidebook to Italy!

This book will prove that those misconceptions couldn't be further from the truth.

​In reality, there are dozens of plant-based dishes in authentic Italian cuisine. It's possible to order a delicious vegan meal in ANY Italian restaurant, and this book will show you how.

No more traipsing out to the suburbs in search of the only vegetarian restaurant in town​.

No more settling for spaghetti with tomato sauce at every meal.​

Instead, you will be eating like the locals and discovering authentic, traditional dishes that most visitors have never heard of.

I announced the book on Facebook Live video a couple of days ago and explained more about the project. Click the image below to watch the video:

  1. I was vegan for over 6 months and it was one of the challenges I decided to take in order to get more creative in my kitchen, try something different, get healthy and help the environment. It was a great journey and I ended up not eating meat anymore 🙂

    • That’s fantastic Agness! Kudos to you for trying something different, and I’m so glad that it was a positive experience for you that resulted in lasting changes.

    • The christmas recipies are not vegetarian nor vegan. Why are you posting them on this site?

      • Hi Christine,
        I think I can explain what happened. There is a plugin installed on my site that allows bloggers to include a link to one of their own posts when they leave a comment. Unfortunately it looks like Agness has posted some non-vegan recipes on her blog and has chosen to link to that post. I have just removed the link now. Thanks for pointing it out.

  2. Will be in Rome in 2 weeks and would have loved to have some more info 🙂 Though I am not 100% vegan I always prefer vegan food over vegetarian food only. Italy with the pizza can be tough :/

    • Don’t worry, you will have loads of options in Rome! And you can always order pizza without cheese anywhere in Italy. It’s not a weird thing there at all; it’s just like asking them to hold the mushrooms or any other ingredient. One of the most common types of pizza – pizza marinara – is naturally vegan already. I do have several other articles about Italy on this blog that you might find interesting. The one on Rome is a bit dated now, but you can check out this guest post I wrote on Alicia Silverstone’s website: http://thekindlife.com/blog/2016/06/guest-blog-how-vegan-friendly-is-italy/

      In it I mention a few Roman specialties that are vegan. And be sure to check the restaurant listings at http://www.happycow.net. There are more veg and veg-friendly restaurants popping up all the time. Some of my favourites are Origano, Rifugio Romano, Buddy’s, Emma, Flower Burger and Universo Vegano. If you can only make it to one, I would choose Rifugio Romano. But you can find a delicious vegan meal in any decent restaurant in Rome. Don’t be afraid to ask; most people there know what “vegano” means. Buon viaggio!
