I found this place quite be accident when wandering round Dresden and as it was so very cold went in for some warming food and perhaps a quite cold beer! They have a novel, well to me, billing system in that as you enter you are handed a chip and pin card and as you wander round making your meal... More

We have been there for a lunch as a family of three. We were impressed with the observing of the pasta production which they serve. Fresh and stomach friendly ingredients without chemicals made the restaurant appealing.

Went to this restaurant for dinner. It is self service. Here the cooking staff was friendly. I ordered tomato pasta which came across dry, Ceasar salad which felt heavy and bruscetta whereby the tomato was not tasteful at all. While the waitress came to clean plates asking how was the food, I commented on the tomato, she claimed she will... More

We wandered into Vapiano for a late lunch after shopping in the Altstadt. I was dubious about the concept when I saw we had to order at a counter, but everything is made to order and all three of us enjoyed our Italian food: salmon Bolognese, zucchini pesto, and a creamy spaghetti with large shrimp. Freshly grated parmesan on top,... More

I love the concept of Vapiano - basically use your individual order card and pay only for what you eat/drink - which makes it ideal for a large group (we were 17 in number) and avoids any "I didn't have a dessert" arguments. The food is freshly prepared in front of you at the counter, is very tasty and of... More

I have eaten at Vapiano several times - mainly during the day or late afternoon when it's not too busy. In the evenings there's usually a lot of people. Pasta dishes are simple but tasty (still haven't tried them all), great for lunch if you like pasta. Lasagne is also very nice. I like the fact they have solid portions... More

Brand new restaurant. Very central location. Nice ambiance. Seems like processes not up and running - as O am used from other Vapianos. Also staff rather interessted in talking to colleagues than serving guests. Hope management will resolve these launch bumps quickly, so others can rate better again ... Sorry Vapiano. But this has been a comparably poor experience tonight... More

looks nice inside, loved the trees inside! but feels a bit crammed on a rainy day and give you the feeling of a canteen. interesting food, but the taste of fresh leaves of Salvia is a bit too much for me. The chef tried to make a joke that was bordeline passive-agressive when my boyfriend asked if he can make... More

We should wait for a long time standing for meal. Really busy... Food was also not good. I cannot recommend visiting here with kids.
