It is a nice dinning spot in a nice area of Reston. Parking is a challenge and will cost you almost 2 per hour around the place. The food theme is italian and it is of good quality, the place is good for families and business folks alike.

On phone, they mentioned we will validated your parking. At checkout they say minimum $15 to get validation. Then when you get the validation code, it says just $2 i.e. 1 hour only. None of this was clarified after repeatedly asking. I felt they were deceptive and sneeky in their approach. Food was good

Most of the time we do take out from this restaurant but we have also eaten at the restaurant. The pizza is so good that we never order anything else. Recently there has been a menu change and my favorite pizza was taken off the menu. :(

What a great concept for a casual dinner. The food was excellent, I had a new offering called reef & beef, it was very tasty. This will be in my list of go to restraints for the next time I'm in the area.

Loved it. I had campanele Arabiata with chicken and shrimp. Richard was diligent about its preparation. The bread was fresh. Great meal

Yeah, that's what I learned when I checked it out couple of weeks ago for dinner. I like the concept, there is really no servers at the restaurants, just chefs/cooks and bartenders. When you enter, you give you a card looks like a regular credit card. You then take that card and go up to the kitchen and order you... More

Vapiano's is about 15 min walk from where I live, it's er nice modern restaurant, great Italian food. Piazza's, pasta and salads are all good. never feel rushed. Good place for couples and friends to enjoy a meal together and not constantly having a waiter come by. I keep coming back

This was a really cool place! I'd never been to a restaurant like this before. You get a card to scan as you order your food at the counter and also at the bar...go back and get dessert and later you check out. The pasta dish I had was a bit too spicy for me (it had mozzarella and tomato)... More
