A lot of the Italian cooking is based upon pulses, vegetables etc. It is based upon the old agricultural cuisine where meat etc were rare. So most local trattorias should serve some local dishes without meat etc.. Dairy might make it more difficult. But again a lot of cooking is based upon olive oil. It is also easy to discuss dishes with the cook. So pastas with mushrooms, tomatoes (zugo rosso), trufle sauce (tartuffo) etc.. are available. Starters without meat etc.. also are traditional: bruschetta with tomatoes, garlic, mushrooms or frittata of vegetables, Vegetables in batter deep fried. A lot or places will do risottos. The stock might contain beef or chicken, you might have to check. Contorni are side dishes, again lot of options with vegetables. I suggest you invest in a really good Italian cook book where the Italian names are used, or simply check on websites. You should find a lot of wonderful dishes that are readily available in local restaurants that will ensure that you will not starve. Lentichi dishes can provide meat/dairy free options. But please feel free to discuss your preferences with the waiter or chef. A lot of local places do not even give the people a menu. It is standard to discuss options with the waiter and they prepare food as discussed there and then. For this you might need to be a bit out of the touristy areas,
