Dear Pura Vita Family,

Due to Covid-19 we have been forced to close our dining room. However, our kitchen will continue to prepare you healthy, organic dishes and we will remain open for pick-up and delivery via Postmates and soon GrubHub services.

We are offering a special family style menu for certain items. These items have been added to our Postmates and GrubHub menus.

Pura Vita has teamed up with Support and Feed! Also available through our online ordering.

SUPPORT + FEED IS A LOS ANGELES INITIATIVE CREATED TO HELP FEED THOSE IN NEED AND ON THE FRONTLINES DURING CRISIS 

Please call the restaurant now to make a donation!

We are a small family owned business and truly appreciate your continuing support of our restaurant. We feel a true passion and responsibility to continuously provide our community with healthy plant-based food, especially during these extraordinary times. This is not going to be easy for anyone, but together we will get through this. Be grateful for one another and take care of yourselves. Thank you again for all of your love and support you share with Pura Vita. We cannot express with words how grateful we are for each and every one of you.

We will see you when your order is ready!

With love always,

Chef Tara and the Pura Vita Family

Welcome to Pura Vita

Pura Vita is a female owned and family operated restaurant. Read our story.  All of our ingredients are sourced from locally grown organic farms and Italian imports for specialty items. Everything is 100% vegan, non-GMO, organic and made from scratch. We are committed to clean, healthy, home-style comfort Italian food that is never processed or fried.

“Setting a precedent as the first 100% plant-based Italian restaurant and wine bar in the US, Pura Vita is not your average Italian restaurant. And you’re in for a real treat because self-taught head chef and owner, Tara Punzone, a vegan herself for over 25 years, has recreated all of her family’s traditional southern Italian recipes into clean, healthy, home-style vegan renditions.” -Katherine Chang, Fitt Los Angeles
