“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

Having previously eaten at Vapiano restaurants, I knew already what to expect. Nevertheless, it was still another pleasant experience of very good freshly cooked food for a moderate price (especially considering prices in Helsinki).

“Tasty and inexpensive”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

In Helsinki, good food is not cheap. At Vapiano, you can have great pizza, pasta or salads that are reasonably priced, yet made to order. The only catch is - the place is entirely self serve, and you might have to queue up to order your food. But judging from the crowd, people don't seem to mind. And, although my friend and I did wait for 20 minutes to get our salads, it was worth it. The pizzas looked great too. I suggest that you go upstairs to eat your meal - it's much quieter up there, and you have a vice view of the square in front of the post office.

“A good idea if it worked.”
Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

We came here to have lunch on a sunny afternoon. The place was crowded and had to queue for our pastas for about 40 min. Probably a good concept if they had enough staff. Way too much queuing though. The food itself was tasty and cheap.

“A nice place for a fast dinner”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

During a visit to Helsinki we went to Vapiano’s for a fast dinner. The setup is the same as all other Vapiano restaurants. Compared to the Vapiano restaurant I have visited in Stockholm this one had better tasting food but a little less compelling interior. The food is, as always at Vapiano’s, Italian and the taste is good and fresh. The service was on top, when ordering and also when it comes to clearing out tables etc. Other than this it’s a self-service place.
Absolutely a place I would want to come back to, but not the place for a fancy dinner.
