“Great food for an affordable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I always seek out this chain when I travel. It suits all needs, both smart and casual.
The food is always very tasty and a safe bet. The queues can be a bit lengthy depending on the time however it doesn't ever take too long.

“For the young and the posh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Vapiano is a restaurant chain that offers quick Italian mainstream food (mostly pizza and pasta) made before your eyes with fresh ingredients. All fine and well, but the atmosphere is not to everyone's liking: noisy, always packed, a constant coming and going of mostly young folk in business attire, barstool seating. The food's definitely good, but you can have your tagliatelle in much nicer environment.

“Fresh food, nice staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Vapiano is one of my favourite restaurants. The Hamburg restaurant is very small so to eat there is quite difficult - it is always crowded. But as a take away it´s fantastic - the pasta is fresh, salads as well.

“Great for a quick dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Hey, if you're needing a quick dinner and not looking for anywhere particularly fancy then this is the place to go. I like the concept here: you pick what you want to eat, watch it being cooked and then ask for added bits and pieces. In practice though it can be a lengthy wait, especially if the person who is cooking for you is in training or is just slow. My tip: watch how long each cook takes and wait in their line. Pasta can be a little bit undercooked so maybe emphasise how you'd like it.

“Great place for Italian fast food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Vapiano is a chain restaurant you will find in quite a few cities around Germany. We went to the one places at Hohe Bleichen 10.
At the entrance you get a "credit card" and you are only able to buy food using this "credit card".

It is quite simple. Order pasta and anti pasta at one counter. Pizzas at an other and drinks from the bar. You always pay using the "credit card".

Food is freshly made within 10 minutes.

The taste and quality is far better than expected and is indeed in fact rather good.

The restaurant is cantina/canteen style and is not for the romantic candle light couple.

When done, you bring the "credit card" to cashier and pay. Prices are absolutely reasonable. I can only recommend this place.
