This was our first experience with Vapiano while in Europe. It was quite busy when we arrived even though it was only 5pm. We found a seat upstairs and worked out the system. They give you a card which you use when ordering (like a credit card) and then pay on departure. You have to go to the different stations... More

On web site the closure is marked at 24:00. We showed up at 23:30 and a very rude cashier refused to let us in saying that kitchen was closed. From entrance was clearly saw that the kitchen was working and that there were other people waiting for a plate of pasta. Great rudeness and lack of respect for the customer.

Hello Andrea, Thank you for your review. We are truly sorry for the impolite service. That should not have happened. Kitchen closes 30 minutes before the closing time. The info is on our website too. We hope to see you again, we will make sure it goes better that time. More

Interesting idea to give you a card for which you use to pay for your food at the end. Also, ordering the food at different stations is a novel idea. Unfortunately, this doesn't make the food anymore exciting or special, just the same as most places. Worthwhile for a visit, but there are probably more unique Italian places around.

This restaurant is great for afternoon lunches or to eat out with friends. It also has a bar so if you are looking for a sit down place in the middle of the city to buy time then it is recommended as it allows for a great view of the downtown area. By the locals it is known for being... More

Had a quick visit in Vapiano. Ordered shrimp pasta. Pasta was great. The way people had to queue was a bit weird though and the cook sometimes shouted at the customers, telling they need to change to the other line.

Thank you for your review Anni! It's great to hear you liked our shrimp pasta. It's one of the most popular pastas on our menu. We have the queuing concept because we think it's unique to see how the food is done right in front of your eyes. A bit longer wait, but more awesome food. We make sure that... More

Visited in friday evening. You have to queue your food like in Burger King. The queue for pasta and risotto was long and slow. So I took the pizza queue. Took Tonno which was a lot of onions and some slices of tuna and too dry. But the place is nice and relaxed. The toilets are really clean!

Thank you for your review Lochte. We are sorry to hear that the pizza wasn't what you expected. On busy hours the lines might get long. But we value the interaction between the costumer and the chef. It means a bit longer wait, but more delicious food. You get to decide how the dish is seasoned. We are really happy... More

Thank you for your review Christian. We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your visit in Vapiano. It is possible to order extra meat even up to 210g. We value the interaction between the costumer and the chef. It means a bit longer wait, but more delicious food. More

Hi Gade! Thank you for your review. Salami pasta is great specially during the cold winter days - spicy and warm. We are really happy to hear that you liked the pasta so much that you wanted to cook it at home. Let us know how it tasted :) More
