I would not go here as a vegan. Stay away! Go to Sweet Tomatoes instead which is tucked away back by Ikea on the other side of the mall.

That said, I went here for years as a vegetarian. I'd end up at this particular location b/c it was close to Streets of Woodfield movie theatres. It was never my first choice, rather it was where we'd end up b/c it met the needs of everyone in a large group. As a vegetarian you'll do pretty good. I'd get the Eggplant Parmesan or the Four Cheese Ravioli which were always fantastic. My two star rating is because their vegetarian options are so terribly limited for an Italian place and their vegan options are virtually non-existent.

Also, they serve veal which is inexcusable. Most people know that "veal" are tortured baby cows taken from their mothers the day they are born. Few people know the connection between milk and the veal industry. Learning this connection is what caused me to go vegan. Please educate yourself if you don't already know:

Very limited vegan options because most of the pasta has eggs in it. I have been there twice and the last time I went I was sick the next day. The first time I went it wasn't good either. My meal was very bland and luckily I did't pay for it since I went for a work lunch. Stay away from this place and it's overpriced.
