We visited the Oslo branch of Vapiano the day after they first opened their door (September 21st 2012). This was my first visit to any Vapiano and the experience was really good. Great fresh pasta, freshly made at your request, with fresh herbs and olive oil at the table. Brilliant food at reasonable prices for being an Oslo restaurant.
While Vapiano in my opinion is not offering a genuine Italian atmosphere, the place looks sleek and inviting. A bar / lounge offers coffee and drinks in a separate part of the premises. Service was great throughout, from we were welcomed, ordered food and drinks, until we paid and left.
Minus for not catering for those with gluten allergy (the salad looked to do the trick though). But definitely an experience which makes you want to come back on a frequent basis.
