Pizza and vegetarian-friendly food in Lakeview

Pizza Capri has two locations in Chicago (one in Lakeview and one in Hyde Park). The pizza can be made vegetarian but not vegan because neither the sauce nor the crust are vegan. There are, however, some pasta and sandwich items on the menu which are vegetarian and could be made vegan.

They also have a brunch menu on which many items are vegetarian, but none of which is really vegan.

There are a couple of decent vegan (or easily-made-vegan) menu items at Pizza Capri.

The Viva Capellini is just angel hair pasta, tossed with olive oil, garlic, tomatoes and basil. The dish is normally vegan, although Pizza Capri has occasionally been known to add grated parmesan to the delivery orders, so you should definitely mention if you don't want cheese.

The mixed baby greens salad is delicious and can easily be made vegan if you tell them to leave out the gorgonzola. Even without the cheese, the salad still contains gourmet lettuce, spinach, roasted pecans, granny smith apples and raspberry vinaigrette.

In my experience, Pizza Capri is one of the more professional eating establishments in Hyde Park. The owner does things like providing free samples when there is a long wait or giving a free bottle of wine as a "thank-you' gift for using their catering services. There are definitely other restaurants nearby that have more vegan options, but if you're looking for a good restaurant with reliable service should check this place out.

I've been to both Pizza Capri locations, and I can usually find something on the menu that is vegan-friendly and is good. The service is usually quite good, but I only come here if I happen to be close and itching for pasta or a sandwich. Since things aren't really natively vegan, I don't go out of my way.
