I went here with coworkers, and have gone there often. With friends, family alone. The food is just perfect, the cashier and the chef's are awesome and the ambiance is just perfect. It could be a tad expensive, especially if you go for lunch. But Methinks it is worth it.

Informal & great place to take the kids. No waiter service cafeteria style. Seating not very comfortable but reasonably priced and good assortment of eating choices.

Eat in or take out, Vapiano's provides the best pizza in the Town Center. The BBQ chicken pizza is my favorite, very flavorful. Get a bottle of mineral water to share with your group. You can ask for cups to go with it. They also have soft drinks for the sugar dedicated drinkers. Inside, seating is on tall chairs or... More

Vapianos is set up with four 'stations' with different seating options, including fresh Italian and a full bar. Each guest is given a plastic card to swipe at the stations and the card is charged on the way out Its an extremely classy miniature Italian food court, but has the feel of an upscale Italian restaurant The Italian pasta is...

I never liked pasta but this changed my liking towards it. The chef prepares everything in front of you. You can customise the spiciness.. Definitely recommended. My wife love the pizza here too.

Good quality average, but do to the cafeteria style, we all ate at different times. Maybe good for dining solo, but not for a family or group.

Sorry you didn't have a chance to eat all together. The concept is all about cooking fresh in front of our guests and let them decide what to add or not to add, or if they have special wishes such as gluten free or if for example a woman is pregnant, they are able to talk with the cook directly...

Best part of this restaurant is that, you get to see your food being cooked.I can always ask the chef to customize my food.The spinach ravioli's are my favorite.

I like the food, its fresh. And it's hard getting fresh food out these days. Most restaurants server factory food.

This restaurant is simply excellent, the way of cooking pastas in front of us is a very good idea! I recommend this restaurant to all the amateurs of Italian cuisine!

Came here with a group of 4 while travelling for work, bad experience from the minute we walked in. We were handed cards at the door but not told what they were for, apparently they are like charge cards and whatever you order gets put onto your card and you pay when you leave. Would have been nice to be... More
