The carbonara never disappoints! Highly recommend, great price-value. Lots of people tho. Pasta, Pizza and italian restaurants are on every corner in Switzerland. Vapianos have an open kitchen and you can kinda guide your cook how you like the given meal. Sheer awesomeness. In this facility everything goes super quick, the food is great and the place is always packed... More

I knew Vapiano from back home in Luxemburg. This proved an exactly equal experience. You queue McDonald's style for your food, but the quality of the food is vastly better. Freshly cooked pasta with a variety of seasonings available. If you are traveling and need a quick meal and you don't want to look around for a nice local eatery:... More

Everything we ordered was tasty especially the risotto but the whole ordering experience is so unenjoyable that I probably won't be back soon. It took about 20 minutes queueing to get what we wanted which feels wrong for restaurant prices. Compare it to a fast food restaurant and you may not be disappointed but don't expect a restaurant-style experience.

This restaurant has no waiters or waitresses. You must stand in line to order, and they cook each person's pasta while they wait in line. So, you will stand for what feels like forever before you can even order. Then they prepare the food. Separate lines for pizza, pasta and salad so you may not even be standing with the... More

Food is fine, but what's with all that waiting in the queue in front of the counter while your food is prepared? In all Vapianos I've been to in other countries, they just give you a badge that you take with you at the table, and you pick up your food when the badge beeps. This is very convenient, I... More

If you are looking for a less expensive restaurant that has fresh food prepared in front of you and the friendliest staff in Zurich, Vapiano is the place for you.

When you arrive the restaurant you get a card and then you queue and order food and garry it by your self to table. You do not have time to chat with your friends at table while waiting to get the food. Food was ok.
