Cheap Italian in heart of Berlin

We chose to go to Vapiano after seeing it recommended in the Lonely Planet guide to Berlin. Vapiano uses a somewhat strange system where you order your meal from a deli style food counter, and then return a few minutes later to collect your food.

The concept is great and useful, although we waited 20 minutes to the pizza. Caprese for starter was great, mista salad was nice too, and the bruschetta pizza was fantastic!

With a swipe card you stand in excruciatingly long lines which can't proceed if plates or trays run out. Expect at least a half hour wait ... but the salad was good.

We visited the six of us on a late Sunday evening. The place was packed and the atmosphere was great. Most of us found the concept (kind of a self service) appealing. We had one pasta Bolongnese (we had better), Pene Roze - very good, paste carbonera (reasonable), pizza pesto (fantastic) and Risotti Americano (so and so). All in all,... More

It is located in Potsdamer Platz and you cannot avoid it as it is on your route to the Brandeburg Tower. The formula is a known one; a kind of fast food (at least for what concerns the orders) with a queue; I can't suggest a better hour to avoid the mess as this restaurant is in the very center...

Too crowded and long queue!! If you're in a hurry don't go there. The food was ok but it's recommended only if you're short of money.

While i always backpack and travel as a traveler instead of a tourist. Sometimes i do spoil myself in a restaurant. Overall the experience was good but not a great one. Service is basically self-service but the cooks and the person behind the counter are pretty friendly. The set-up is amazing and is a good place to hangout with friends... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
