If you’re a vegetarian or simply looking to cut back on meat, there are plenty of Italian vegetarian dishes you can enjoy. While Italian recipes sometimes use a variety of meats, it is equally easy to create a mouthwatering dish without using any meat at all. At Giolitti Deli, we offer our guests several vegetarian dishes to enjoy, including the classic items listed below. Additionally, vegan options are always available upon request. The following appetizers and meals are delicious, healthy, and filling no matter what your diet usually consists of.
Lasagna is a classic Italian dish, which often includes meat in its many layers of pasta. However, veggie lasagna is easy to make and is an excellent vegetarian option. At Giolitti Deli, our veggie lasagna comes with mushrooms, zucchini, and spinach, along with several mouthwatering cheeses: fresh ricotta, parmesan, and mozzarella.
The Chicken Parmesan is a staple of Italian food, but if you’re seeking out Italian vegetarian dishes, you can still enjoy this meal without the chicken. Eggplant Parmesan, just as the chicken parmesan is, and covered with delicious melted parmesan cheese. You can also choose to have the dish served with spaghetti or penne pasta.
Custom Neapolitan Pizzas
Of course, the versatility of pizza means you can design your own delicious vegetarian Neapolitan. At Giolitti Deli, you can choose to add various toppings to your pizza, including onions, green pepper, tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, marinated eggplant, roasted peppers, and more.
You can also explore various other Italian vegetarian dishes, from veggie calzones to the classic mozzarella sticks. No matter your diet preferences, you can find something delicious to enjoy in Italian cuisine.
