Vapiano is an innovative European concept serving made-to-order fire roasted pizzas, fresh, house-made pasta and hand tossed gourmet salads. Every dish is complemented with fresh herbs from the restaurant's herb garden.
Well worth the visit if you enjoy authentic Italian food and being able to be picky about how it is prepared.
The restaurant is layed out in several counters where each counter prepares a different type of dish. You queue up and then ask the cook what you want and they will ask you at several stages how you want it.
A lot of their preparation is from fresh and home made ingredients/bases, which definitely improves the taste.
When entering the restaurant you are issued with a card, you will be asked to tap this card on the counter when the chef finishes cooking your meal and when you leave the restaurant at the till so they can know what you have ordered and thus calculate your bill.
Big note, there is no table service here.
Good food and a good atmosphere. I love the idea of getting a tab set up as you walk in, makes it easy to enjoy a few nice drinks with dinner.
Pizzas and pasta are tasty. Some of the wine seems on the pricey side.
Most of the staff are superb, although some of them are a bit full of their own importance (yesterday talking to a colleague was more important than serving me).
Overall- good place to meet, eat and drink.
Authentic Italian food cooked in front of you with a fast food flare. Separate areas for ordering pasta and salads. The cooks enter your order while preparing your meal, and you swipe a special card that keeps your order separate and quick to pay before you leave. Everything is fresh and made to order. The Salmon Carbonara was excellent!
Great place for a quick bite near the hussle and bustle of Oxford Street. They have seating indoors so it's good for a quick chat with friends or work colleagues.
The food is Italian, I had pasta and pizza. Service was quick and friendly.
One of my favourite places to eat in the area. With great Italian food and you can be precise with the way it is prepared. The atmosphere is always nice and makes for an enjoyable meal.
