Dinner here was excellent. We loved the salads, pizza, pasta and risotto. Everything made fresh right before your eyes with all ingredients customizable by you. Great concept and great execution.

* One of my favourite restaurants in London so it was a given that we were going to visit the NYC location! * Not a very busy evening so we were served fast and found a table even faster. * Ordered the shrimp and tomato sauce with linguini pasta (so delicious - forgotten its name on the menu!) * Clean...

I was visiting New York from India, and I absolutely loved this place. I was meeting two of my best friends int he US and we just enjoyed the food here! Being, vegetarian, my choices were limited, however that did not stop me from having one of the best pastas I have had!

This restaurant or self-service food, had a different idea that can still be improved. The food is delicious and fresh, the portions maybe very small. Very good service of tables, cutlery and napkins of very good quality and excellent cleaning, without personal service, the technology in this case does not give speed to the service, since it is necessary to...

...with freshly prepared food from various self service stations. We had a pizza, a pasta and a salad and all was really tasty. Good wine list and a full bar, nice, relaxed atmosphere in a generous space.

We've been to the Vapiano in DC and one member of our party visited the location in Sarajevo. The restaurant has a contemporary setting with open spaces and blond wood. They give you a card as you enter and it is charged for whatever you order at the various food stations. The food is essentially Italian, with offerings like pizza... More

Popular with NYU students, this two level order up your own Italian restaurant is always hopping and its mid-priced Italian is popular. You essentially pick up a card, order what you want, pick it up at various counters and chow down. And you pay as you head out.

We went there as 2 couples. The concept of the restaurant is that there are specific stations that offer different foods. One station is dedicated to pizza, one to pasta and then there's the wine bar. You get in line and order your choice of pasta for example and have a choice of pasta to go with a specific sauce....

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
