Olive Dolci – vegan ice cream shop Rome

I can’t believe it that I didn’t checked Happy Cow good enough to find out that Rome has a whole vegan ice cream shop!! Luckily I had still a free day left as I was teaching nearly every day yoga and stretching classes ๐Ÿ˜…

This place is not only awesome because it has only vegan ice cream, but of its special way to produce it!! It’s all made of olive oil!! And as I am the biggest olive oil lover this place was heaven for me!!

Of course the different tastes are not all olive oil flavored! Actually you’ll taste nothing of olive oil in it! But it makes such a creamy consistence for flavores like Lolla Nonna, which is like Nutella, peanut or steccialtella! 

It took me a quite while to choose my flavors because there where a lot i never tried before, like white wine, red wine, black sesame and and and ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™‚

So I decided for Goji, green tea, Lolla Nonna and coconut! Later I got to taste a bit of the olive oil ice cream and it was sooo delicious only with a really soft taste of olive oil! For me it could even have been more ๐Ÿ˜œ

But that’s still not all! They have ice cream on a stick and a few different cakes, made of olive oil base as well ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

I don’t have to mention that I had to take also an ice cream on a stick ๐Ÿ˜…

This by far is my favorite ice cream place in Rome and I can’t wait to come back to taste a lot more of all these, I guess over 30, different flavored ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

Find it: 

Via Emanuele Filiberto 140/142 &

Via Vittoria Colonna 20, Roma

Gardaland – Italy

After an incredible vegan experience in Verona, I still was surprised to find vegan food in an amusement park at Lake Garda!! And not only accidentally vegan items but real conscious chosen vegan dishes with an extra remark on their food flyer!

I mean to find vegan stuff like sugar apples, vegan ice cream like sorbet or Granita, fried nuts, fruits etc etc, is not that difficult everywhere!

But finding healthy and delicious vegan food I didn’t expected in an amusement park in Italy ๐Ÿ˜…

Called the vegan kiosk or Sultan Kiosk, there is a spot in the Arabic area which makes delicious vegan food! There where 3 menus to choose of and now the best!!! Three different desserts! And guess what it was! Two different vegan cheesecakes and on vegan chocolate cake!!! I couldn’t be more happy ๐Ÿ˜ Continue reading Gardaland – Italy

Flora – Verona

I nearly missed my night bus back to Germany for going to this restaurant and I have to say it was totally worth running with all my luggage to the bus station like crazy!!

This raw vegan and gluten free restaurant has so many good things on the menu that already deciding took me way too long for the little time I had! But with the help of their nice staff I decided for a quinoa dish and raw tiramisu as dessert. And actually this tiramisu was one of the best ones I ever ate!! I’d love to have the recipe for this!!

La Lanterna – Verona

They have all typical Italian dishes like pizza, pasta and antipasti, but also special ones like pasta al cacao !! Of course I had ti take this one ๐Ÿ˜‰ Continue reading La Lanterna – Verona

Universo Vegano Italia

A new vegan place to eat in Rome ๐Ÿ™‚ !! And it’s actually the first vegan fast food chain with shops in different italian cities like Milan, Verona, Turin and Rome ๐Ÿ™‚
With their philosophy of respecting all animals and nonviolence for all life, they use only natural products, strictly vegan products of course, and give also importance to regional products.
You’ll find there bagels, burger, focaccia, sandwiches, hotdogs, vegan kebab, Piadina which is there called Veghina and is filled with various things! One of my favourites, directly after the Saitan Tonnato, which is something like a tuna sandwich, is the Veghina chocolate !!!
There are 2 shops in Rome, on in Trastevere, in Piazza di Santa, Rufina 6 , and one in Campo de’Fioro at Piazza del Patadiso 18.
For the other cities watch out:

Bveg Florence

While my last time in Tuscany I found a really nice vegetarian and also vegan friendly restaurant in Florence. It’s in the near of the station and you eat in a cozy room which looks like a cozy living room full of books.
We had the vegan plate with soy Sausages, cauliflower cream and other yummy stuff, a vegan burger and a mouthwatering chocolate cake, which we even get as a present at the end of the meal ๐Ÿ™‚
The exact address is: Via degli Orti Oricellari 6, Florence

Arancia Blu

This vegetarian restaurant has a really beautiful interior! Sitting there you feel like in a big comfortable living room for its cosy atmosphere and a big shelve full of books and DVDs. The food is quiet good, I had an amazing starter of raw artichoke and hummus followed of fried ravioli and almond sorbet as dessert. As a vegan these were the only things out of the menu, because nearly all of the rest was made with egg and much with cheese, so its not that vegan friendly, but as long there is a vegan dessert for me I’m happy!
Its located in Via Prenestina, 396e

I sapori di Liila

A new vegan restaurant found its place in Rome, Mentana!
In this lovely places which is run by an even lovelier woman, you get vegan organic food, for sure made with a lot of love!
You can order a la carte or take the menu for around 25 euro which includes not only starters, main dish, dessert and water, but also mostly a little cute surprises!
What I liked there really much was that there is a nice variety of wine and other alcoholic drinks…alcohol free!
But of course also the hard stuff if you want ๐Ÿ˜‰
If you are wondering about all the food in shape of hearts on my pictures… It was valentines day ๐Ÿ™‚
And like always I realized that I wanted to make pictures of the dessert, when it was eaten by me like a crazy!
The restaurant is open for lunch or dinner every day except Tuesday and you find it in Via 3 Novembre, 59 in Roma, Mentana!

Vegan Dinner and Cooking classes at OPs

And again I joined a fabulous evening at restaurant vegetarian OPS, this time with a menu cooked from participants of a cooking class that day.
It was a very nice and completely vegan menu with starters from a buffet, a first and a second plate and a nice dessert of which like often I couldn’t made the picture anymore because I ate it directly without able to think anymore ๐Ÿ˜‰
Nearly all visitors of this evening were in accord that Seitan is something much more better than normal meat!
And as the perfect end of the evening I got a copy of the book from the chef himself!
So if you live in Rome and want to improve your cooking abilities I can suggest this one! Or take the book like I did! Can’t wait to try a few recipes soon!

Un Punto Macrobiotico

Berlinveganlove girl Sรผnne and me were this weekend reunited in Rome and if course enjoyed together the great Italian kitchen!
We found among a lot of other nice places this macrobiotic restaurant in San Lorenzo.
It’s not really a vegetarian restaurant because they have one or two things with fish but the rest is completely vegan because there are no meat, dairy or eggs used!
We took the lunch menu for 10 euro and of course tasted all of the different cakes for dessert!
The lunch menu consists 5 different meals like whole grain salads, pasta or couscous Gnocchi with almond cream sauce.
After eating a lot of fatty and heavy food it was our rescue!
We were in Via del Volsci 121 where you find next to the restaurant also a macrobiotic shop!
But also in Via dei Campani 65/67 is another macrobiotic restaurant, but with pizza. This should be checked out soon!
