A nice variety of Italian food that is prepared before your eyes. The food was solid, but not extraordinary. With power outlets at the tables and free wifi, they have a very hip concept. Everyone entering gets a "charge" card and you put your food, drinks and desert on it. When you leave you show your card and pay your balance. Definitely a good place to meet for a quick lunch or in the evening for drinks with friends. As it is located right across from the main train station, it is centrally located and a good place to meet.

Standard Vapiano, near to Lausanne station.

Good quality Italian cuisine cooked to order whilst you wait. Lots of choice and specials.

I had the Pasta Gamberetti Piccante with Linguine made from prawns, zucchini and onions, with green hot pepper in a pesto cream sauce with semi-dried tomatoes and cherry tomatoes.

It was very good, quite a large portion and nicely spiced.

Perfect for quick dinners or a drink, even when busy. Service is always efficient, staff friendly and price good too! All food tastes fresh and they have a good selection of choices.

Vapiano is great for lunch or dinner and its great because everyone gets their own card and orders for themselves (no long splitting the bill discussions). The food is delicious and you can watch as it is being made, which I think is a nice touch! For desert I recommend "death by chocolate" - BUT should probably split it with someone as it is extremely filling.
The prices are average while quantity and quality do not disappoint. It is an excellent choice for a relaxed dinner in center of Lausanne.

I love the premise of Vapiano - queue up at one of the stations (e.g salads / pizza / pasta) and they'll cook your order right in front of you. It's fast food without the grease. Decent priced for Lausanne. The prawn and beef salad is excellent, while the pizzas never disappoint either.
