Good Modern Italian

This restaurant highlight is that there's no need of waiters, so you go ask for your food, you wait for it standing up in a line and then balance your tray to look for an available place to seat. The plus side is that you get to see how the cooks are preparing your food and actively asking you... read more

We had salad with scampi, Pizza Tonno and pasta to go and all of it was delicious. Waiting time was rather long but still ok. VaPiano is always a great deal.

Food is good. Staff is friendly and helpful. It's not a restaurant though. More a canteen experience.

We have enjoyed Vapiano food in Germany and Sweden before, with the only problem being the queues, which can mean family members eating at different time. Looking for a place for a quick lunch on Sunday, we noticed Vapiano just opening, which allowed us to beat the queues and find a table. Some reviewers compare Vapiano to a canteen, but... More

Me and my partner wanted to visit this restaurant for the first time. The place was very crowded, so we just had a quick look around if there is any free table available. There was none, so we passed the queue in front of the door and got out. All of a sudden the employees begin to shout behind our... More

The concept of this restaurant is very simple: you pick a table and start to act as the waiter using a piece of credit card type plastic to record the drinks & food ordered and picked up yourselves from the various counters and kitchen stations. Although it was busy there was never a long line in front of those; you... More

A bit difficult to understand if you have never been there before. You take a card and tray and queue up at one of the serving stations at the kitchen. You tell the chef/cook what you want and he/she cooks it in front of you. All the ingredients are fresh and portion controlled in individual packets. When cooked you scan... More
