“Only "OK"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

You get a card when you enter, then you "charge" all your food orders on that card and pay when you leave. You take your tray around the perimeter and they cook your food for you. You can customize your pizza and pasta order, or order from the menu board. My kids love this place. The food is OK, not fantastic. You pay really for the whole gimmicky way you order your food. Their dessert was good, however (panna cotta). Kind of pricey. Nice outdoor seating but you may have to share tables with other families.

“McPasta and/or McPizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

All dishes are made fresh and you can actually watch while your meal is being prepared. The quality of the food is good and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Here comes the big BUT...I actually witnessed one of the cooks step out for a cigarette. He was smoking right next to the delivery entrance and left the door open so all that yummy smoke could draft into the kitchen. Once he finished smoking he went back into the kitchen. I can't really say that he washed his hands...it was more like a cat'I lick. He barely wet his hands and absolutely used NO SOAP. He used his apron to dry his hands and headed right back to his post to prepare salads. After seeing what I saw I will definitely not go back there. Luckily there's another Vapiano in Mainz right by the Rhein river approximately just a 20 minute drive from Vapiano Wiesbaden and they wash their hands properly...I hope.....

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

It s ok, food and wines are good. but you have to go to different places to have your food and drinks ( self service) which we didn't like.

“Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Wonderful creations made to order right in front of you! Rebecca is a wonderful chef and friendly host. Vapiano's variety make it a great choice for picky eaters or families with diverse pallets. Always recommend Vapiano's, and the few extra minutes you might wait to be served by Rebecca!

“Great Italian Fast Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Neat place in the center of Wiesbaden. The staff is helpful, smiley, and very hospitable to everyone. The food is great, however I have it a 4 of 5 because the pizza lacks. But if you stick to the fresh pasta and salad, you won't be disappointed. It's probably the best "non-chain" chain restaurant in town. Great for a quick and tastey bite with friends and a view of the Kurhaus (Casino).
