Good Italian food, interesting concept!

Vapiano is a great place to eat as an alternative to fast food, the concept is clever, you walk around several food stations with a charge card, they do a great Caesar salad and the Tiramisu is to die for, that's all you need but they do lovely pastas and pizzas too, great atmosphere as well

Nice the concept of fast food applied to the Mediterranean cuisine. Pizza better than some real Italian restaurants in town. One thing though where unfortunately all locals which pretend to serve Italian food fall down: the sahne. In Italy we do not use the sahne almost at all, except for two or three dishes. For example the real carbonara is... More

Simplicity and quality. Pure. No fancy characteristics. Vapiano as Vapiano is everywhere else in the world. Good wine; excellent coffea.

A popular restaurant that is packed even on a cold Saturday afternoon. I was there about a week ago with my wife. The pasta is great, although we thought the carbonara sauce as a bit too salty. I asked for beef in my sauce and ended up with chicken, even though the pasta chef confirmed that I wanted "Rindfleisch". Not... More

This is a popular restaurant so be prepared to wait for a table and for the possibility that everyone will get their food at different times. This is a self-serve so each person goes to the counter area of their choice to get appetizer, salad or entree. All food is made to order. Depending on how many pasta chefs are... More

Vapiano is a famous franchise for pizza and pasta fast-food. Fast and decent dishes, prepared directly in front of you. It's open till late, in comparison to German standards. Full menu with drinks can vary from 12 to 25 Euro.

Great restaurant for a quick meal. Food is tasty and staff were friendly, despite slight language barrier. They do close the kitchen an hour before they close, however, which was a little misleading as some colleagues arrived late and couldn't order anything.

Vapiano is a fun, self-service concept restaurant, where the food is prepared directly in front of you. Upon entering, you are handed a "charge" card which you proceed to use as you move from station to station ordering your various appetizers, drinks, and entrees. The atmosphere is fun and noisy; the concept is, to my knowledge, unique. From a full... More
