I ordered Risotto and watched it being cooked (the highlight of the meal). Cooked with too much butter and not enough cheese. Taste was just ok. The big issue I had was the individual preparing the meal was adding ingredients by picking them up with an ungloved hand. This would be a health code violation in the US. Probably happens... More

This is a chain but unlike McDonalds / Burger King (no disrespect to those chains) it is Italian food cooked to order in front of you - fresh excellent food and the price is good . They have a slightly limited menu but it is about freshly made and cooked Italian food - you can also buy their freshly made... More

Amazing idea where you can have a card to swipe at every station to record the food you ordered and you just give your card back and pay when you are leaving. Pizzas, salads and pastas are as great as you are in Italy. Great idea if you wanna dine as a group and you want to pay for what... More

A local hangout in Darmstadt is Vapiano, an Italian restaurant with a twist. It is set up with inside and outside seating, including a nice lounge area. You are given a plastic card when you enter that charges all your food and drink as you order it. There are stations for salads, pasta, pizza and a bar. The food is... More

Very nice atmosphere, high ceilings and comfortable tables. Has a fun feel to it. The way to order your food or drinks is a neat concept, they give you a card and it is scanned at each station when you order something. I had penne all'arrabbiata. Very good. I would go back again for sure.

At this restaurant, you can ask for food choosing a type of pasta, sauce and accompaniment. The point of cooking is perfect, and when you choose your queue (one for pasta, another for pizza...), they provide you a key which informs you to pick the meal up, so, you can wait for it sitting at your table. I've also eaten... More

Young people love this restaurant, now two in Darmstadt. Very clever concept, no table service, except to clear plates etc. If it's pasta you want you queue at several counter stations and chefs cook your food as you wait. Each chef prepares two pasta dishes at the same time. When you come in you are given a charge card which... More

I like Vapiano, I just do. Enjoyed Gamberetti Pasta and small side salad here, it was good as usual. I was early so it wasn't too busy, staff was friendly. The building is amazing, really nice atmosphere!
