Visited with a group of people and none of us left disappointed. The concept is unique, everyone gets their own card to put the items on and then you travel around to each station and pick your food which is recorded on the card. At the end you just take each card up to the main desk and pay. Food... More

I've eaten at this location before and had a good experience, and since it was nearby, I decided to eat here again. The food was fresh and tasty, but I left wondering why the drinking glasses are so small. They could benefit from larger glasses.

This US branch of a German chain of Italian restaurants is bustling. The crowd is younger, the concept offers a wide variety of pastas and pizzas in a spacious friendly format. Reasonably priced.

I first found this place by accident. My wife and I were walking around DC and happened to get hungry. I was looking for pizza and this place had pretty good reviews. Little did I know that I would get pasta and pizza and both were delicious! This place is pretty unique in the sense that it's kind of like... More

Well, this is a unique place. You watch chefs cooking your food and they ask you how you want it, great concept plus the streamlined ordering process. Pasta is fresh and made at the restaurant! I loved this place and prices are worth it given the experience!!!!

I've been to a few Vapiano restaurants and this one isn't one of the better ones. While their pastas are great (I particularly liked the spicy special of f the day), the pizzas my friends ordered weren't as tasty or as well balanced. There were also considerable complications with ordering because we tried to get a bruschetta as an appetiser.... More

The food was delicious and efficiently prepared and the staff were very friendly. We did find, however, that for new diners, the set up and process to order and pay etc was not explained as we arrived and only after looking a bit lost did a very sweet and helpful waitress come and talk us through the ordering process.

We just happened to find it and we end up eating there twice when we were visiting in Washington DC. Good fresh food and you can have it "your way" The pasta dish I had was the special on our first visit. The second visit I tried small Ham E Funghi pizza which we shared and another main dish. The...

I had their Hawaiian pizza. One of the few place I have found to get a round pizza. The price was fair for about a 12" pizza. The flavor was good. I don't particularly care for their order system and also their check out. You are given a charge card when you come in. You get in line for pasta,... More

I had a mediocre experience here a year ago but decided to try it again so I wouldn't be accused of snap judgements. Imagine my dismay to find the same rude and unfriendly bartender still at the bar and worse than last time. On top of it, the Carpaccio they served me had been sitting for another order for 10...
