yeah thats true, but i spoke with several pizza makers and they said that in the original italianpizza there shouldn't be milk or butter... but who knows really what they put in there...

with pasta is the same problem, the chance that they have pasta without eggs is then 50% i would say..

but all in all i got in every restaurant i went sofar something too eat, you just have to talk to the waiter or even better directly with the cook :)

Ps if u order a pizza without cheese say if it is possible to get more vegetables instead most of the time that is no problem ;)

i ve been to croatia last year, but because i m not that ice fan i just ate one... i also had to talk with the person who sold them..
But probably the chance to get a vegan sorbet isn't that bad, but for vanilla and chocolate i think the chances are not so high (but thats just what i m thinking ;) )
i also heard that sometimes they put gelatin in the ice-cream, but because i don't eat it very often i didn't do any more research...

do you also come to austria, there i could help you a little bit more^^

Cheers

Patrick is right, the ORIGINAL pizza recipe does not include butter, but nowadays some (20%? 80%? can't tell) pizza makers include butter to make it more fluffy

about ice cream, vanilla and chocolate are a no go (in each country)
unless you come in a vegan ice-creamerie, by default all these tastes have milk in it! just fruit ones are MOST of the times safe (again, not always; to make it more creamy they do add milk)

and gudri, yeah, happycow is a good resource for whichever country! :)
indeed there is also the "vegan passport"
I agree with you, there is a lot of dishes in italy containing meats and fishes; but I think it is very typical in the mediterranean culture to also have quite some vegetable-based dishes, something that you do not find in the traditional kitchen of nordic EU countries :(

so I think that, if we talk just about TRADITIONAL kitchen, mediterranean countries should be easier than nordic ones for vegans!!
