La Famiglia Italiana Sanford (Vegan Guide)

New-ish Sanford Italian restaurant La Famiglia is located in a retrofitted historic home in the heart of Historic Downtown Sanford (Sanford Ave). Although they don't have that many vegan options, the cute atmosphere may convince some to visit and customize some options to make them suitable for vegans. I have been in discussion with the staff at La Famiglia to verify these vegan options:

A cheat sheet to what is vegan...

- the dough

- the red sauce

- the penne

- the fettuccine

- veggie toppings:

- basil

- garlic

- broccoli

- mushrooms

- green peppers

- black olives

- onion

- customized salads

On the menu...

PIZZA Build Your Own Pizza

Customize a pizza with dough, red sauce, and veggie toppings (ask for no cheese or butter).

Pizza Ideas:

- Pizza w/ red sauce, mushrooms, green peppers, and onions

- Pizza w/ red sauce, broccoli, garlic, and basil


Penne w/ Red Sauce

Fettuccine w/ Red Sauce

You can also for red pepper or veggies to spice things up further.


Garden Salad

Fresh greens, tomatoes, olives, and onions (remove shredded mozzarella).


Burrata cheese (request without), sliced vine-ripened tomatoes, and fresh basil drizzled with a balsamic glaze.

The jury is still out...


Pasta Fagioli Soup

I spoke twice with them on the phone, but this dish wasn't brought up. I need to reach back out to confirm whether or not this is vegan. Right now, I'm going to go with no and advise people NOT to order this.


It's unclear if the bread they bring to the table and the bread they use for their subs is vegan.
