As usual, before flying to Rome, I checked for vegan listings on HappyCow. I got quite a few results, but the problem was that most of the vegan restaurants were a bit far from the city center. As we already didn’t live close to the center, I didn’t want to waste time during our short stay to go to an all-vegan restaurant seeing as Italian cuisine is generally quite accommodating. That’s why we ended up going to places that all had vegan options but were not strictly vegan, or even vegetarian.
