“Really good food, great concept...”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

This is a really neat restaurant concept. When you enter you are given a card to capture all of your purchases (run a tab). You go from station to station making selections (drinks, salads, pastas, pizzas, etc.). As you select items your card is swipped and that item is added to your tab. I had the chimichurri chicken pasta, very good.

“Great italian at a good price.”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Vapiano provides a wonderful setting for a business meeting, a family meal or a date. The indoor seating is comfortable and the food is delicious. The outdoor seating is a perfect place for people watching over a glass of wine in Uptown Charlotte.

The cafeteria style approach is not typically my favorite, but everything else about this spot was cool so I can play along.

“Did not realize they came to the US”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Love this place for a good fresh salad...their pizza quite good too. Great model combining cafeteria style with fresh prepared food. Great for business, family or friends. Please keep growing. Some of the US chain restaurants could learn from them.

“Great place worth trying out”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We went to this restaurant with a few friends one night and then this weekend we went for lunch with family that came into town. It was a great experience. When you go inside, you get a card and then you go order what you want from the bar, dessert or food. You can watch the cooks make the food in front of you. You can sit wherever you want. They have fresh herbs on the tables and it's great! Everything is really good and fresh. The prices are very decent too. We will definitely go back again!

“Great restaurant in the heart of Charlotte!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Came here yesterday for lunch with my mom and loved it! When you walk in, the hostess tells you how the restaurant works, and gives you a card, almost like a credit card. There are different stations (pasta, Panini's, salads, etc.) and you go up to the one you want and order. Then, you swipe your card and the amount gets out onto that. At the end, you pay back at the front desk however much is on your card. It's a really interesting system, but it works really well. The food is unbelievable. You see them making the pasta ad ingredients right there, and the table are around trees (big ones that were probably there when they built the restaurant) and herbs that they grow. I had a great experience here!
