Vegan Italian Feast at Pietro's

Pietro’s is one of the oldest Italian restaurants in West Michigan. Since they opened in 1980, they have been introducing great Italian cuisine to West Michigan community. Pietro’s also adopted different dietary requests and started to serve gluten-free pasta, gluten-free pizza, and vegan pizza cheese since 2010.

Pietro’s wants to invite Grand Rapids Vegan/Vegetarian meetup group and share their vegan items with us.

Head Chef Ernesto came out with family style all vegan course meals and all you can eat at just $20. This includes the tax and the gratuity.

 

Here is the menu of five different dishes you will get.

 

1. Michigan Cherry Salad:

spring mix with raspberry dressing, caramelized pralines, and dried cherries and red onions

2. Sicilian tomatoes soup with white rice

3. Corn pasta with primavera vegetables and vegan cheeses

4. Eggplant Parmesan

5. Lasagna:

using vegan cheese and pizza dough for lasagna noodles, and layered with vegetables

 

So, what do you think? Don’t miss this great opportunity and enjoy totally vegan Italian meals on May 17th, Friday evening at 6:30pm.

    Did we ever find out the name of the cheese in the salad? What was in it? It seemed too good to be true!

    It was good to try a new menu and meet new people but the atmosphere and food were lacking. Hopefully the new owners have plans to renovate the physical restaurant along with the menu to increase the amount of light and add a more contemporary flare.

    And hopefully they have other vegan options in mind for their new menu. The salad was great (what was the cheese?) but the rest of the food was bland, overcooked and reminiscent of 90s style vegetarian with mostly carbs and no protein.d
