Everything Vegan at Fazolis (Jan-2020)

Fazolis Vegan Options Logo

Fazolis doesn’t offer many vegan options, but the ones they do offer are quite delicious in my opinion. You can definitely have a decent vegan meal here with some modifications to some menu-items.

Overall, while I wouldn’t be excited about eating at Fazoli’s as a Vegan, I know I could make an adequate meal, with some alright (a little overpriced) pasta, with some fluffy tasty breadsticks and fresh strawberry lemonade, so who would I be to complain about eating there?

Build-Your-Own Vegan Pasta Options at Fazoli's:

  • Choose Your Pasta – Whole-Grain Rotini, Fettuccine, Penne, or Spaghetti.
  • Choose Your Sauce – Marinara Sauce
  • Choose Your Toppings – Broccoli
The broccoli doesn’t really add any flavor to the pasta, it’s basically just boiled/steamed broccoli, but hey it’s the only vegan topping they currently have. The pastas are usually cooked quite nice, and the marinara sauce is alright. I’d say it’s comparable to good store-bought pasta sauce with just some regular ‘ol boiled dry pasta.

Vegan Salad Options at Fazoli's:

  • All Salads without Cheese or Meat and with a below-mentioned dressing
  • Fat-Free Italian Dressing
  • Fazoli’s House Dressing
  • Red Wine Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • White Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • Croutons
Yes, the Croutons are Vegan! At most restaurants they aren’t, but according to what Fazoli’s says they are actually vegan at their restaurants. It’s quite nice that they have multiple vegan-friendly salad dressings on top of the vegan-friendly Croutons — which really makes up for the relatively plain salads they have.

Vegan Sides at Fazoli's:

  • Plain Breadsticks (without Garlic Butter)
  • Broccoli
  • Steamed Mixed Vegetables
  • Garden Side Salad (Specify No Cheese — see vegan dressings above)
Truthfully I’d only consider getting the breadsticks or the side-salad, as the vegetable-sides just aren’t very impressive.

Vegan Desserts & Special Drinks at Fazoli's:

  • Italian Lemon Ice
  • Italian Strawberry-Lemon Ice
  • Italian Raspberry-Lemon Ice
These are downright delicious, I almost never get any sort of drinks when I go out to eat, but almost if not every time I’ve ate at Fazoli’s I’ve gotten a lemonade, usually the strawberry-lemonade, as that’s my favorite one.
