Fast fresh Italian food

Sometimes go here for Lunch as I work close by. At lunch times usually really busy but the food is nicely freshly prepared in front of you. The price is also a positive factor. Sometimes pizza's take bit longer but ja thats due to the amount of people.

I often travel alone on business and sometimes, as a lone diner with table service, I am ignored (could it be that the size of my potential bill fails to impress?!). Vapiano is a really cool concept when you want high quality Italian food but without the 'pomp and circumstance' of a fancy restaurant! You get your order card up... More

A great place in this expensive city to grab a fairly reasonably priced meal. Great for family, friends or couples. The system whereby you order and pay at the counter and take your freshly made meal back to your table is good. Also, a nice touch to have fresh basil and oils at your table. I would recommend!

Eaten here numerous times. Relaxed and easy, often come here to chat and catch up with friends, over inexpensive drinks and eats. You can choose to sit in the bar area or in the main restaurant area which is bright and contemporary. You choose what you want to eat and drink and the food is cooked fresh in front of... More

Good place, like always. Swiss prices are much higher than in other countries (for i.e. Germany, UAE, Hungary), but this is still a recommended place. Basel restaurant is not really well located, but still easy to access.

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

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
