Self-service restaurant, reasonable price

We like this restaurant because food are cooked right in front of you, fresh and tasty. Cheese cake is too cold to eat , tiramisu tastes much better.

Chef seemed inexperienced, carbonara turned to scrambled egg, not offered bread (which I had been in London and Berlin) and when I asked for it chef disappeared for ages. I tried to speak to other staff but they just told me to wait...meanwhile my food was going cold. Chef finally came back with bruschetta which I had not ordered. Overall... More

Fast food made fabulous!! Stopped in for Italian at a made before your eyes, fresh food cafeteria style restaurant, that was incredibly crowded, and didn't regret it one bit. One of the best Carbonara's I've eaten anywhere, let alone Germany. Good beer, good wine, good food, good atmosphere, and for a good price. Yes, that's right, it's all incredibly affordable... More

Went here several times. I like the Va Piano chain and the novelty is the card system, which sort of makes the restaurant self service but kids will love it! Cute deserts in little pots as well.

Decided to head over to Vapiano for dinner after reading some convincing reviews here. Upon arrival, we were handed cards which are used to pay for your meals. Nothing new thus far as we have seen similar concepts before. It was crowded and took us quite some time to find a table although the restaurant itself was huge. First off,... More

If you haven't tried Vapiano yet, Dresden's is one of the best as it is centrally placed and large enough to eat leisurely if you wish. Highly recommended for lovers of good Italian food, cooked whilst you wait using only fresh ingredients!

We went there as a large group after a business meeting. It was loud, crowded, slow. The pizza came out half baked and not very tasty (thank god for the chile flakes!). This is a chain restaurant and looks exactly the same in Zurich. No character, no service. Avoid.

The good and interesting things about the restaurant are that, when ordering pasta, antipasti or salads, you can watch while preparing the food, but the food does not taste like the real Italian food.
