Good concept

Good pizzas cooked quickly to order. Usually busy, so looks like their dining concept works and quality holds up.

Great place to drop in for a good meal and people watch. We always run into friends here. Like the soups, wood fired pizza and homemade pasta.

Food is good. Lots of Italian style cuisine. Reasonable pricing for what you get but not super cheap. Lots of variety and you can customize to your liking. A bit loud of you want to have good conversation while you are there.

Love the pasta and pizza here, so much flavor and freshness since they make all their dough in house fresh! I personally think it's a lot of fun to watch the chefs cook the pasta as I order it, It's certainly a more laid back restaurant, more of a self-serve type, but it doesn't diminish the quality of the meal....

Vapiano has good food, but you have to stand there while the chef cooks your meal. I find that incredibly irritating. The décor in this restaurant is neat - it even has a modern fire place. It is an open space, so quite noisy when it is busy - which it often is. I just wish they had waiters.

The restaurant uses a RF card system to help you spend money. The pastas and pizzas are on the expensive side; however, they taste good and the ingredients remain fresh. Good happy hour deals and well worth a visit.

The restaurant is very open and of a modern design. Seating is open, i.e. works with the concept. You get a charge card each and once you have your seating selected, you can go to the back and order from the kitchen staff your meal. Soup, salads, pastas and pizzas. All practically cooked before your eyes. You get a pager... More

I think the food here is a little above average for an Italian place but the ambiance helps lift it to a very pleasurable visit More strictly this might be a 3 but it was fun Choosing your pasta, sauce and ingredients is a fairly simple concept however they do make it fun The table centerpieces are a mix of...

The food is OK but you need to go and get it yourself. Prepared to order but who wants to stay around for 5-10 minutes awaiting your order for each course? Not me.
