If you like pasta - go somewhere else

It is not possible to eat together when you are with a large group. Ingredients for pasta sauces are reduced, e. g. No more dried tomatoes.

Usually crowded, but the with such an unprepared staff it is normal that they can't serve such a big number of people...my cook prepared my small MISTA PICCOLA with chicken breast ( 3 really small pieces for 2-3 € I don't remember exactly) for exactly 15 minutes which is the same time as I prepare it at home. of course...

Similar to other Vapiano's -except a little more crowded as it's right in the city centre. Fresh, cooked while you wait, low prices. if you haven't tried - DO!

Very nice pasta, pizza, and salad in comfortable and pleasant surroundings. Quirky idea of queuing individually for food and it being cooked to order in front of you as you wait, but it works and the food is piping hot and cooked perfectly. The only downside from multiple visits was an astonishingly rude and grumpy bar man yesterday, probably the... More

I knew this franchise from home already. Serves good quality italian food on reasonable price and you can get it done fast, but you can sit for a while. Trendy bar upsters, young trendy people around.

Situtated in front of the schloss Arkaden (shopping center). Offers italian style food, pizza/pasta. Tried their pizza which was very nice. It is a self service place. Would recommned sitting at the balcony if the weather allows.

Vapiano is a italian food chain in Germany, with a slightly different concept: you pick your semi-prepared food directly at the "kitchen counter", pick the ingredients you want with your pasta, drinks and dessert, pay and then have a seat of your choice. This particular branch is located right at one of the historic buildings in Braunschweig, so the view... More

At Vapiano's in Braunschweig the food quality depends very much on what you eat. We had pasta with river crayfish (granchi) and the calf meat with tuna (vitello con tonno; antipasti), which were both excellent. But the beef (carpaccio; antipasti) was deep frozen, watery and thus without taste. The ambiente is OK for a self service restaurant. Be sure not... More
