“We need these in the U.S.!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We stopped in after not being able to decide what we (wife, friend and I) wanted. They have three sections to chose from; the noodle line, the pizza line and the salad line (I think). You get a little credit card when you enter and after you order, you give the card to the cook and he swipes the price on it for you. Then you go eat and when you're done, you take the card to the payment counter and they swipe it and that's when you pay.
We all chose the noodle line where they run noodles through a boiling contraption and you can chose from a list of toppings and sauces. My wife got the bolognese, I got the creamy mushroom, and I forgot what my friend ordered. All were excellent, fast food! You'd think that the payment system was designed to minimize dine and dash's, but it's pretty much on the honor system. We ate outside, and after we ate, we could've just got up and walked away and nobody would've known.

On a side note: while we were eating, a celebrity of some sort, (middle aged woman) walked past and everyone around us all pointed and remarked in German about her and quite a few people went up to her and shook her hand. We didn't recognize her.

“有創意的義大利餐廳. 手工麵條好吃極了~Love the pasta noodles!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Nice creative way of ordering. Hand-made noodles is awesome. Caesar salad tastes great as well.
The restaurant is clean and with relaxed and brightness environment. I really like the feeling of eating there.3-4 times a month at least. The only thing that can be better is the service attitude of the cooks and waiters. If they would have more smile will be greater.
Recommend to try: YES!!

“Fantastically fresh food - once you're done with queueing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

I loved this restaurant, from its location, to the concept of the freshly made to order food and finishing - very important with the quality of ingredients and generous portions. Even the French Cabernet Sauvignon I had with my dinner was exceptionally good - full bodied and tasty.

You have choices: pasta, salads, pizza and your tipycal italian classic starters. Whatever you order is made in front of you, fresh, tasty, abundant. The kaleidoscope of colours and and smells is bound to make you hungry. All in all superb Italian food in the heart of Nuremberg at HauptPlatz.

You've got to be patient though and have someone to help you carrr your trays around and to the table as you have to queue and wait for your every meal. before queueing at the cash till and then carrying everything on trays to your table. But if you're game, it's totally worth it. if the weather permits, sit outside.

“Vapiano”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Incredible restaurant, you choose pasta you would like to eat and they will add any sauce you like adding ingredients or leaving ingredients out. Portions are huge and salads are amazing. They make all their own pastas in house. One of the best places to eat.
