    We tried the crema di fungi and the ravioli! Both of them were great. Waiting in line takes time but therefore you get your food ready in front of yourself. The ingredients are fresh made everyday!

    Chain restaurant. Very odd approach to self service. Would be better adopting the Nandos philosophy. Good value mid range italian fare. Tables come with chili oil and fresh basil plant - nice touch

    Can never go wrong with Vapiano although keep in mind ordering a fresh pasta will cost you some time. Worth it tho, just be patient.

    Good relation quality-price. Fresh pasta made in front of you, good quality and cheap. The problem is they are extremely slow. Two hours for lunch, for me it does not worth it.

    Food 7/10 fresh, fast & yummy pasta is better than the pizza. service 4/10is self service & you have to get in queue line for every section. atmosphere 5/10 more like upgraded fast food resturant.

    If it's your first time here worth getting instructions from the host about how to order and pay 💰

    Tacchino Piccante works very well with the Conchiglie pasta. I can also recommend the chicken caesar salad. Pizza Diavolo can be made extra spicy when ordering, that means HOT!

    I love Vapiano but you should avoid it at core lunch and dinner times. Waiting time is just way too long, especially at a tourist spot like this.

    One of THE best gluten free pizzas ever had. Broad gluten free options

    Italian fast food. Often busy, so you will have to queue for a while. Beats tourists traps and other fast food places.

    Go for Granchi di fiume (crawfish + lobster sauce) pasta and carpaccio. Sehr lecker!

    The Thaitaly pasta was unusual but very tasty. I could see how the queuing could get a bit mental at lunch time, perhaps go for a late lunch...

    if you can’t avoid going here, try the pizza rucola

    Nice concept,pasta is okay, but the place is mostly about the atmosphere of fast Italian food right in front of you.

    Not bad! It's practically an Italian place and they're gonna treat u as well as Italians do. Italiani, non è male..! Non come a casa, ma ci sanno fare...

    I like the live-cooking-concept... But why do I have to wait about 15 minutes in line, seeing that so many pasta-stations are not in use? However: thee food is great at an afforable price.

    Be prepared to wait...a lot. The chef also didn't know the correct recipe for my pasta dish from their menu

    Horrible place. Food is OK, but you'd think after years they would have figured out how to design a shop where people in line don't block the war for people to walk. Don't recommend it.

    Had the pasta with beef. For some reason they decided to cut the portions…. There is nearly no beef in the plate, ridiculous amount… expensive for what they give you… maybe this place lost its touch

    Go for the Arrabiata but be careful when the chef asks "medium spicy or extra spicy?"... He's serious about the "extra spicy" part! :-)

    It seems like in an effort to make ordering items easier they actually made it even more complicated.

    Self service restaurant. Pasta was great. Pizza is mediocre. A bit loud. Must be tried at least once.

    Have you ever seen Caesar salad without any meat(any kind at all) and one tiny skinny piece of tomato?Come and see!:))Pizza was also tasteless.Topping was very scarce.Do not recommend.

    No longer serving pizza but pinza… which is a rectangular undercooked pizza wanna pizza. Maybe the pasta and salads are still ok but avoid the pinza

    The self-service is crap! Why on earth do you have to stand in a line to see other peoples pasta being cooked?

    Helpless staff. Long que and really slow chefs - and they are rude too. Obvious bad hand hygiene on top. We left before we had to eat.

    It has a fast food atmosphere but waiting times are long and prices are high compared to a regular Italian restaurant
