Waited 35 mins for a pizza and when it arrived it was inedible - completely soggy, see photo. The cutlery and glasses were dirty. Really disappointing. I will not be returning.

Very disappointed in the staff reaction and ignorance to us in the cue ! Very disrespectful and discriminatory character. Left without eating because of the staff attitude . Won't give it a single point the system of reviewing won't accept zero circle

Vapiano is a great place to eat with friends or if you need quick food(excluding peak hours). They have Pasta, Pizza, and Antipasti. I love eating pasta at Vapiano. Unfortunately, the ''deliciousness" sometimes depends on who's preparing it. Nevertheless, I will always recommend Vapiano.

We are a family of lovers of Vapiano, we have visited quite a few branches of the network in the past (Berlin, Vienna, Warsaw, Innsbruck and more) It was clear to us that we would be looking to eat in one of the London branches....More

An hour waiting on Tuesday 9pm for dinner is one thing but having very salty salad is unacceptable. It's not a good place to go for large groups with young children. Overall we had such an awful experience.

I visit this restaurant regularly and I am very glad that this time i received an excellent service from one of the staff members called Willy (if I am right). He is a very professional member of staff! Great customer service! Thank You!

This sophisticated and sociable slice of Central
London is a shopper’s paradise, offering the latest
fashions, gadgets, and souvenirs. Fitzrovia is
conveniently located between the major retail
thoroughfares of Regent Street to the west and
Tottenham Court Road to the east, with a handful of
well connected Tube stations dotted around the area
for easy transport. This neighbourhood is a favorite

Laid back, buzzy restaurant, loved for its freshly made pasta, pizza and salad dishes. Pick up a card on the way in, choose your dish from the counters and watch it made in front of you. Pay on the way out.
