Forget the food, the experience is tasty in itself. So you walk in and they hand you a card, and you see stations where to get food and drinks. Everything is charged to the card and you pay at the end. That´s it. Interesting concept,...More

Loved our ‘self-serve’ meals. Restaurant was a bit cold (then again, it’s freezing temperatures outside). Not enough bathrooms and the wine I selected was not available. Overall, I would recommend if simply for the perfectly cooked pasta!

Tasty pasta, interesting concept, part of a chain of European restaurants (we visited locations in Berlin, Vienna, Warsaw and Budapest). You can choose on line your pasta and sauce, included whole wheat pasta. Nice young environment, close to New York University and Union Square.

An interesting concept, that is very good if you like to make changes to the dishes. Since everything is made fresh there is no problem or objection to changing ingredients. Staff are friendly and prices are very fair.

This was my first time at a Vapiano restaurant and I thought it was great. The pasta was very tasty and I like that I could watch it being cooked. The price was fantastic and I got a bottle of prosecco for $11.95!!! That's completely...More

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.
