This cozy vegan- and vegetarian-friendly café in the Ostiense neighborhood offers a constantly alternating selection of veggie- and grain- based specials for both lunch and dinner. In an environmentally-friendly twist, they choose the approach of a “piatto unico,” where both main courses and side-dishes are served on the same plate to save on water later. Verde Pistacchio’s recipes include everything from their crostone topped with eggplant and herbs; polenta with provolone and pumpkin; seitan with vegetable caponata; and tofu with green curry. Their cakes may be vegan but are (we mean it) as decadent as the classic recipe: try their torta al cioccolato or apple, ginger, and pineapple cake.
