We had a good first visit to Dolce Vegan just over 3 years ago, so I was happy to be returning. Unfortunately, our second visit probably means there won't be a third.
Perhaps it was because we arrived after 9pm, but every sauce and every side we asked about was "finito". It turned out the only sauce they had was carbonara. I didn't want carbonara, so decided to order the lasagne, which I'd really enjoyed on my last visit. What I received was an anaemic-looking slice of, what appeared to be, lasagne carbonara!
Sadly - even for those at the table who wanted carbonara - it wasn't a great carbonara sauce - very rich and soupy. Everything tasted bland and joyless.
The staff were helpful enough when I asked questions, but not particularly friendly. Even a request for ketchup was turned down (they put ketchup on all the burgers), and instead, we were given a small bowl of (you guessed it) extra carbonara sauce.
There are so many better places in Florence for vegans and vegetarians to eat that we probably won't visit Dolce Vegan again.
