Bethesda was in need of an Italian kitchen during the past few years, and Vapiano recently came to the rescue. This well-situated, cozy, and inviting restaurant offers the best Italian cuisine available in all of Bethesda, along with wonderful service personnel.
Vapiano’s modern and casual dining experience brings you irresistible food. Your average Bethesda pizza house offers fast food bombs, while Vapiano takes pride in the food it makes. Your mouth will water as you watch the talented chefs prepare your own pizza, a wonderful aroma spreading in all directions. You have the choice of margherita, roasted tomato and garlic, ruccola, salame, and many more kinds of pizzas. For those who are not in the mood for pizza, one of the unique 20 salad types will also satisfy your hunger. Maybe pasta will do the trick? Aside from the short waiting time it takes for your meal, the excellent trio of pizza, salad, and pasta makes for a fresh and healthy combination.
A restaurant can have stunning and awe-inspiring food, but without good service, it will not attract as many customers. Vapiano servers get an A+, for being helpful and kind, and also for letting you have your time and space to eat. A host or hostess will greet you upon arriving at the restaurant and explain how to use a “chip card”, which you use whenever you wish to order food by swiping at the pizza, salad, or pasta bars. There are no waiters or waitresses to collect your orders. Instead, Vapiano gives you the freedom of exploring your meal options. It is easy to start conversations with the experienced and polite chefs, who fulfill your wishes as if they mean the world to them. The great employees, who do the best to make your meal as enjoyable as possible, are as important to Vapiano as the food.
Normally, people have to plan a trip to Rome to come close to Italian delicacies. But Vapiano is located in the heart of Bethesda. In addition there are 70 more worldwide Vapiano locations and 100 soon to be developed in the United States, Europe, and Middle East. The bright colorful lights and modern furniture fit well to Bethesda. When you call a half hour before, Vapiano offers ready to go pick up of any meal on the menu, and it is easily accessible to visit. Being only a few minutes away from the Crescent Trail, some may even walk or bike to Vapiano. Whatever the case, the brilliant location is convenient to visit for those of Bethesda and surrounding areas.
Once you take your first bite and slowly close your eyes, you will feel a rush of emotions shooting ecstatically around in your body. When your eyes open again, you will be sitting in a small restaurant in Rome. The exclusive European dining experience of Vapiano brings something new to Bethesda. Healthy and delicious food freshly made at your request, unbeatable service and commitment by the chefs, and the suitable location of Vapiano provide an unforgettable experience.
