Designing your own pasta as you watch it be prepared, quite a different experience I must say - but the end product was just perfect and exact to what I wanted. I love the concept of this place, must be visited.

I like Vapiano for the meal, the entertainment of having my pasta dish made in front of me and the tables with plants on each table top. I've visited this one before, as well as in Lithuania and Brisbane. All pretty much the same and why not, no reason to change the formula.

I'm still unsure whether to love or hate this place. The food is terrific and the concept of having your own card for billing is brilliant, however.....having to stand in a line whilst the pasta is cooked individually means that you are not eating at the same time as your friends and family. We were a group of six and... More

Had an early dinner with the family. They loved the concept, but is a bit casual if you are looking for a sit down meal with waiter service as there is none in this restaurant. You get your own drinks from the bar and order your food and line up to wait for it to be cooked. It was fine... More

This is a poorly conceived idea. You line up to order your food and it's made in front of you. The only problem is the lines are so long, you can wait for up to 40mins. I waited 40mins, returned to my seat only to find someone had put a straw in my beer and my friends had finished eating.

This is located just off of the esplanade and offers a variety of salads, pastas, and pizzas. Everything is made fresh right in front of you as you order and it all looks so delicious it will be hard to choose just one dish! The laid back house music that plays in the background fits perfectly with the modern furniture... More

We ventured today to Vapiano for our daughter's 15th birthday celebration. Have been to Vapiano in the US and were quite excited to be going in our back yard. Sadly it did not live up to our US experience, maybe they have changed their dining to suit the Aussie market? We arrived and got to choose where we sat, then... More

Have been waiting in line for 20 minutes for kids pastas. I am still yet to order and have my dish made. My wife spent 10 minutes at the pizza and salad lines. Our young kids have no choice but to sit at the table alone. Who wants to spend their night standing in lines. I don't get what all... More

We haven't eaten there for a good 12 months , but ventured in there late Sunday evening. The meet and greet guy on the front entrance was smart, and friendly. We only had and antipasto platter and a pizza , and both were top notch. Big flavours , fresh tasting and served quickly. Keep up the good work , your... More
