If you're looking for a friend's night out a small business meal or even a romantic dinner Vapiano always works. They serve Italian food. Mainly Pizza and Pasta but they have a lot of variety. I eat here every now and then and there's always something new to try. Price is really fair in relation to other Restaurants in Basel.... More

there are so many nice pizza places in town, okay they really know how to cater to kids - other than that ...... if you go during peak hours you wait in line for the obvious. So we decided to go during off-peak on a Sunday, okay what is off-peak during a Sunday, doesn't actually exist. We waited for the... More

Vapiano is a chain across Europe. love the food, very easy to order delicious pizza and pasta. if it is busy you have to line up. But overall it is a fantastic experience. Sometimes i tend to share a pizza and a salad to have the healthy option. Be aware they offer ready made dressing, i tend to go just... More

It's difficult to go wrong with Italian food, it's always a safe option. And that was true for Vapiano. It's a great restaurant, with a joyful and young atmosphere and you can choose between salads, risottos or pizza. I had this amazing melon and ham risotto and my sister share a zucchini pizza with her boyfriend that looked great as... More

Great choice of different dishes, had an awesome seafood risotto and tiramisu. Nice atmosphere as well. You order and pay with a personal card where all gets added until you pay at the till when you leave.

It's a very nice place, many people, nice ambience, wine is good, presentation is very good... I went twice, once I got a risotto which was very good, aother time I took a pizza which was not good (nearly better in the Migros restaurant). I suggest to go sometimes with friends, eat fresh pasta or risotto

I go here a lot because I love pasta and the interior is so cozy with the dimmed lights, the wooden floors, the herbs and the dark red walls. This is the perfect place if you only want to have one course and then leave, but also suitable if you want to sit here longer and have dessert and coffee.... More

One of my preferred restaurants in Basel. Vapiano is very informal restaurant, nice especially when you don't want to wait to be served. Usually I order the salad. The rucola dressing and Parmesan cheese on the top are a must-try!

Vapiano is a nice place for a drink and as casual dinner with friends and family. The quality itself is really good as you can get homemade pasta and all fresh ingredient. Good place but always really busy, something a little bit to much!
