I was thrilled to find a pizza place in Venice, Italy with clearly labeled vegan option.
Of course I got the vega. It was okay. Hubby was not at all impressed. The place is a counter only, so we ordered and took our pizza box to a nearby square. This is common in Italy. It was fun to do this, but I wish the pizza had been better.
Pizzeria L’Angelo gets two out of five vegan cupcakes. Not only was the pizza not great, the people working there clearly didn’t want to be there. Too bad. I say skip this place and keep exploring.
Eating vegan in Venice, Italy was the easiest of all three cities visited. Our hotel was not in the main tourist area, which was wonderful. We were able to wander the islands (I didn’t even know the Venice we see today is a series of multiple small islands that have been connected with landfill) and see things others often miss.
Of course we were starving as soon as we arrived. Many restaurants are closed during the mid afternoon so I was thrilled to see Teamo was open and had vegan options. Best part? Sitting outside in the lovely weather.
Of course I had to try the vegan lasagna and gazpacho. Both were incredible! Hubby got asperagus risotto (vegetarian) and the Teamo salad without seafood. The vegan menu is small, but there are miltiple vegetarian options.
Yummers! Not the best lasagna I have ever had, but a yummy option for a hungry dinner. The soup and salad were both excellent.
We enjoyed Teamo so much that we went back a few days later. They must only carry so many servings at a time because the only vegan option available was the burger. Which is not actually a burger and I enjoyed it more than the lasagna. It is two seasoned and mixed with vegetables tofu patties served with your choice of raw or cooked vegetables. I got the cooked vegetables because I also got a salad. Yummers!
Teamo gets four out of five vegan cupcakes. Very worth enjoying when in Venice, especially if the weather allows for sitting outside on the calm street/sidewalk.
