    I just had the pesto pizza with chicken and it was AMAZING! Definitely eat here if you're in Chinatown looking for a place to chow down.

    I had the Cesar Salad with Linguini Chicken Alfredo and it was the best thing I've ever had. For my first visit, I was extremely pleased. I'll definitely be going back 😋

    A chic place where you order right at the kitchen, sit at trendy wooden tables and enjoy the site of DC through the huge windows of the restaurant.

    You wouldn't think Cheesecake at Vapiano, but think again - it's delicious! And while you are still thinking I'm getting seconds on it.

    Pasta lines can be long but there is a reason! The pomodoro sauce is incredible and the 'spicey' option is slamming!

    Vapiano is the best Italian chain in DC. Their food is consistently good, and the atmosphere is fun.

    really unique concept: they give you a card that stores all of your purchases from various stations, then you pay at the end. not at all crowded

    Fast food Italian combined with kitschy digs. This place is excellent for anyone who can tolerate self service in a chaotic atmosphere.

    Good prosciutto pizza. Good prices for the pizzas (~$12) when most places are over $12-$15.

    Decent "fast food" Italian where hey create the dish in front of you. Limited gluten free options but they had a few. Everything was good.

    Pasta was a little raw and the sauce was watery, not creamy. To order pasta, order instead risotto was better tasting.
