One of the nicer options in Darmstadt

Vapiano serves Italian food, you can choose between salads, pizzas or pastas .. There's also a bar serving drinks and desert. You have to stand in line to get your food and can see the chefs cooking it.. I like the atmosphere of the place.. It's not spectacular but definitely one of the nicer... read more

I like the concept of vapiano. They give you a card to charge all your orders to and you pay at the end. No waitstaff, just food. I will note this concept is not new and existed in Australia 10 years ago. The food is mediocre, nothing to write home about. Seating is communal so if you're looking for privacy... More

You go in and get a card. All you eat and drink is charged on the card. You pay when you leave. It's a self-service. Staff walks around only to clear tables. Had both pasta and pizza. Many times, trying different things from the quite limited menu and getting very different quality and taste of the food every time. Not... More

I have been here several times and the food is very good. It gets very busy though and you can wait a while to be served. The selection of food is great though and they have plenty of drinks to chose from also.

I had a dinner there on saturday and I ate a pizza margherita and drank water. The food was ok even if quite far from an italian pizza. The problem was the temperature..there was no air conditioning and outside there is not enough space.

I love their choice of wine. Exactly at Vapiano I learned how amazing are wines from South Africa. Food is also very nice. And they serve the coffee I love - Illy!

Interesting concept place,extremely expensive.Location wise just walking distance from the Hauptbahnof.The food in my opinion left a lot to be desired!You jump around to different food stations and get your pasta,pizza made.If its a quiet sit down kind of place,this is not the place you want to go to.

I always loved Vapiano, however not all the restaurants are the same. I learned this real quick after I visited the location in Darmstadt. Ray the Mananger welcomed us with open arms. His team and himself provided an A+ service. The food tasted fresh, the whole team was funny and it was fun watching them how they accommodated each guest... More

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
