Il Margutta Vegetarian Food & Art is a modern alternative restaurant and gallery serving creative vegetarian twists on Roman classics since 1979

Tucked away a short walk from the bustle of Piazza del Popolo, down a street that shares its name, il Margutta awaits those in search of cuisine that’s light and healthy, but still distinctly Roman. Traditional and innovative at the same time, the menu showcases classic Mediterranean dishes that accommodate the vegetarian and vegan palate.

Opening in 1979, il Margutta was the first vegetarian restaurant not just in Rome but also in Italy. Ninety percent of the products are organic, with fruit and vegetables arriving daily from local growers. Several products, including the restaurant’s bread and seitan are made in house.

Fifty percent of both the food and wine listed on the menu are vegan and most dishes can be modified to satisfy vegan standards. Margutta also offers classic Roman dishes, making it an ideal spot to get a taste of the city’s gastronomic traditions. Guests can choose from items served a la carte or among four specially designed fixed price menus which change seasonally.  They also offer a daily brunch (12-3.30pm) and an aperitivo from 6.30pm.

By itself, the interior of the locale is minimalistic, allowing the space to function as an ever-changing contemporary art gallery. The current theme is “Urban Style,” which will change again in two months. Special entertainment includes a pianist on evenings and weekends, as well as a weekly jazz night.
