I have been here twice, about four times in London and once in Berlin, and it's consistently great. The options and customisable element is great, and it's pretty affordable in my opinion. It's one of those place I know I can always enjoy. The queue...More

Recently dined at Vapiano. The prices are reasonable. The food was good. They make the pasta on the premise. Good place for a causal lunch or dinner with friends. You can power your phone at the table.

We have had vapiano in different cities and they are quite consistent in their dishes. Interesting concept of getting dishes made exactly the way you want. Enjoyed the vegetarian spinach and cottage cheese ravioli though would have have preferred the pasta little more well done....More

Hello Alexander, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We are very saddened to read. Our pasts is so fresh, that the cooking time is indeed 90 seconds. The chefs should have finished your sauce in that time and...More

It is very rare for me to give a bad review. Neat concept but execution failed on may levels. The cooks preparing the food had very negative attitudes that made my whole party uncomfortable. Pizza Margarita was just a regular cheese pizza, not tasty. My...More

I have eaten here twice, and each time I always feel I'm getting ripped off. It's a cool concept, but it's always a long wait standing in line to order your pasta. Then, you have to keep standing up waiting for your pasta to finish...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.
