We arrived at the hotel a bit late, so by the time we were ready to go out it was nearly closing time. We went to Vgloso, a lovely vegan restaurant in mainland Venice. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. They said that we can dine in even if it goes over the closing time, which was about in 45 minutes, as it will be more comfortable for us. So, instead of going to take away we decided to stay in for dinner.
Because we stayed a few minutes over the closing time I could take a picture of the interior without disturbing any other guests. It was quite busy for a weekday, which is understandable considering how good the food is.
We both wanted pasta, because it’s Italy, so pasta is a sort of a must. My husband picked pici with a carbonara sauce. I went for penne with algae sauce. I had algae sauce before at an Italian restaurant in London, which I love, and I wasn’t disappointed at all, the dish was delicious.
We also had drinks, but no dessert because it was late and we didn’t want to take too much of their time. It was a great meal in a wonderful location and I would gladly visit them again.
As many vegan restaurants in Italy, this one too is focused on healthy alternatives. Their menu is also gluten free, while, of course, I’m not saying that gluten is unhealthy. For example, when it comes to drinks, they also offer pressed juice and smoothies.
Vgloso is on Viale Ancona, 10a, 30172 Venezia.
