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

While the food was excellent and the cook staff great the greeters and management are horrid. They have a different system for ordering and payment which is not well communicated in signage or verbally. They expect you to hold a card for the whole event per adult. The 'why' behind this 'what' was not explained. Come to find out the... More

We went there during happy hour. To get the deals, you have to sit in the bar and the bartender takes your order. It was $8 for a pizza, which was up to $6 off, so it was a great deal. Only pizzas and drinks offered at happy hour prices. I like the decor and atmosphere of the place. It's... More

I will give this restaurant a very good based on the food. I found the description and the follow-through confusing. After I was handed a card to register what I ordered, I went to a couple of stations to order food. I was told that I would be given something in order for the people to find me where I... More
