Long queues, tired staff, frustrated guests ... Both in Hamburg and Bremen this has been my recent experience at Vapiano. The management needs to get this under control fast before what used to be a lovely Italian food experience becomes a glorified McDonalds.

First let me state the following: I visited Vapiano locations in many cities: Hamburg, Berlin, Reston/VA, London and Bremen. You will always get great value: great pizzas, salads, pasta, good atmosphere - quality you can count on. However the attitude towards customers remains a challenge: I had ordered some pasta, my wife and son a pizza. there was already a... More

After walking around Bremen for most of the day on New Years Day, this was the only restaurant that was open so we decided to try it and was certainly not disappointed. We were new to the concept of having a card which you scan each time you order something then pay at the end but it was a good... More

Good and tasty food, staff was ok, overall good enough, you sit where the place is and you pay when you leave at the desk next to the door. The idea is to use your chip card to order food and drinks. good selection of soups, pasta, pizzas ans salads.

A semi-self-service restaurant: you order your pasta or pizza from various bars, where it is freshly prepared and you collect it when ready. A fairly average (if small) selection of Italian food, served at a sensible price and speed. Fine for lunch or a quick dinner.

Vapiano is half gourmet italian, half coffee house, and half cafeteria. yeah, its that big. A franchise with multiple locations across northern germany for sure (just saw one in Hamburg today), the concept is interesting. you get a "charge card", you go to various lines with fresh pasta, drinks, pizza, appetizers, etc. and you charge what you want on this...

A really good idea. You collect a charge card on arrival to the restaurant and seat yourself, then go to either the pasta, pizza or salad section and order your exact requirement, they swipe your card with the order and pay on leaving. However good the idea the smooth operation depends on numbers and the fresh pasta station on a... More

Part of a chain found in many cities in Germany, Vapianos is a great concept .. limited menu (pizza, pasta & risotto) but the chance to customise your meal and then watch them prepare it in front of you. Reasonable prices, simple decor and friendly staff .. what more could you ask?

Vapiano is a chain restaurant. I normally try to avoid chain restaurants because I dislike the lack of creativity that is found in the standard menu. However, I do really like Vapiano because you can customize your meal and watch them cook it for you. The ingredients are fresh and the different stations (pasta, pizza) allow you to get exactly...
