I went there with collegues from the university and we had a good time. This restaurant is good if you eat pizza and if you like to run stairs and carry your own food because apparently this is how it goes in vapiano. No service at all. But the prices are affordable and the pizza is fresh made, so big PLUS here. For me this "restaurant" is just a new style fast food pasta place with uncomfortable seats. The starters are too expensive for a "no waiters" place, keep it simple here, one dish - one pizza - and find a table not too far away from the "ktichen window".
It is fine for fast fooding, but not for a real restaurant experience.

It's a chain restaurant, so the food and service are most likely the same as other ones all over the world. It's like ibis among the inexpensive hotels. I enjoy the food quite a lot, so I visit the one in Saarbruecken quite often (ca. every 1-2 weeks). The menu is fixed, but there are some seasonal choices keep changing. Both the pastas and pizzas are good and they're prepared right in front of you. The dessert is also quite good if you have extra space after the main. The only problem is that sometimes it's quite crowded during the weekends, so you'd better either prepare for a long queue or choose a uncommon time for meals.

i like vapiano, the concept of the restaurant itself, an open space where they cook fresh food in front of you. it is indeed italian style and very good prize for the quality of food you receive.

Vapiano means go slowly and yes the service is very slow.
When entering the restaurant you get a badge which allows you to order what you want. There is choice between salades, pasta and pizza. Unfortunately you have to wait in the row for +/- half an hour (it certainly is when you chose paste) before you get at the desk. The cook prepares your choice of pasta (freshly prepared on site) and sauce in front of you.
You can chose wine by the glass: choice of 20 bins from Italy and other countries. Excellent wine houses such as Firriato from Sicily.
Once you received your food you can eat inside, on first floor or outside at large tables.
You pay after you have finished by giving your badge to the desk.
Beside the long delays, the price / quality value is very good.
