Veggie St. Pete

We take the guesswork out of finding vegetarian- and veg-friendly dining spots in downtown St. Petersburg

Papa Angelo’s January 25, 2012

Filed under: Vegetarian Options,Veggie-Friendly — beatlebird @ 8:13 pm

It’s literally a little hole in the wall across from the courthouse, but the scents wafting out from Papa Angelo’s are enticing in that “OMG, I smell pizza” sort of way. Plemty of veggie and vegan options on the menu; vegans will enjoy sweet potato fries, bruschetta, fried mushrooms, onion rings, a bevvy of salads, and spaghetti with garlic & oil.

Pizzas range from  14″ to 18″ with some unusual topping choices; raw garlic, artichokes, broccoli.

Dine-in, carryout, delivery.
Hours: Mon-Fri 11am-10pm; Sat., 4pm-10pm; closed Sunday.

Gratzzi Italian Grille November 25, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — beatlebird @ 7:27 pm

Even though Gratzzi has moved around downtown a few times, it still commands a loyal following for its basic Italian specialties. Vegetarian options rely mostly on the salads, including the melon & arugula; insalata caprese; insalata di spinaci; and Caesar. Pasta dishes include the whole wheat penne Meditteranea, and pappardelle Alfredo. Gratzzi serves gourmet pizza, whole and by the slice.

Moscato’s Bella Cucina May 2, 2011

Filed under: Veggie-Friendly — beatlebird @ 3:48 pm

This fairly new restaurant, run by a brother-sister team, has a (thankfully) limited menu, which is actually quite veggie-friendly. Two dinner-sized salads, the Signature Salad and the Bella Cucina Salad, can be easily veganized by omitting the cheese- plus, they offer some good proteins and extra veg to add to the salad: garbanzo beans, kidney beans, corn, peas, beets, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, hot cherry peppers. Moscato’s also offers two vegetarian personal pizzas – ‘Grandma’s’, and the ‘veggie.’  Pasta dishes abound here too, as well as a vegetable wrap and eggplant parmesan sandwich. Live entertainment on the weekends. Beer and wine available.
