Vegan Italian Cuisine
Specializing in vegan Italian cuisine, Vegano Italiano has the hookup on plant-based fare inspired by this Mediterranean country. Ypsi diners may choose several courses of tasty Italian eats from appetizers and salads to sandwiches, traditional entrees, and pizzas. Appetizers include fried meatballs and eggplant cutlets, while sandwich lovers can choose options like meatball subs and loaded gyros. The menu includes a variety of salads along with traditional Italian entrees such as vegetable lasagna and pesto pasta. For the vegan pizza connoisseurs, the plant-based eatery offers a variety of specialty pizzas like buffalo chicken ‘za and an irresistible breakfast pizza. Creative vegans may also build a custom pizza pie with a variety of sauces, cheeses, veggie toppings, and even plant-based meatballs.

Vegano Italiano has a decadent treat selection including banana coconut bread and tasty seasonal cookies.
