Review from Brendan H.
Quality of food excellent and cooked to order in front of you. Was relatively quiet at 10pm so the service was reasonably quick.
Meals range from €6.5-10, with some salads for a little less.
Improvement would be to provide plain bread with each pasta meal or offer it as an option - did not notice this on the menu.

I visited this restaurant for the first time today and left absolutely furious about the service I received. As I handed the chef my 'chip card' to charge my meal he stared through me, pointed at the desk in front of him and told me "down there, maybe you should stop using your phone" (I had briefly looked at my phone while he prepared my food) - when I explained I hadn't used the system before and didn't realise how it worked I was told "now you know everything, go".
As I asked for the manager to complain I was interrupted by a server who tells me I need to "chill out" while laughing at me. I was told I "didn't need a manager".
Food is ok, brought down to poor by the side order of bad attitude you get for free! If you want to eat here chose another branch!
Review from Rory R.
Restaurant chains can sometimes be hit and miss (See TGI Fridays) but this seems to be one of the successes.
How it works: you enter and are given a card with which you do the ordering. You order directly from the chefs and scan your card. Then depending on what you ordered, you wait for the food or are given a beeper and retie to your chosen spot. After it beeps you collect your food and dig in. When you have finished you take the card to the door, scan it again and are given the amount to pay. Pretty simple!
The decor is airy and fresh and clean canteen style tables/banks with fresh herbs on the table for you to pick at your lea sure. This for me is a fantastic little idea that should be adopted everywhere at once.
The food is above average for an Italian restaurant and is good value for money, fulling too!
The wine list is quite impressive too for a self service restaurant.
Not somewhere you could go for a romantic meal but for a nice, clean place to grab a bite to eat this is very recommended.
Review from Damon B.
For me this is one of the better Vapiano's in Vienna, as it has lots of room to get your food and loads of space between tables to move around without getting your tray knocked out of your hands.
Well done to the design team on this one.

Dear people at Vapiano..
May I reccomend you the following:
- when you're open until 22hr, don't turn up the lights at 21:45
- when you're open until 22hr, don't turn off the music at 21:45
- when you're open until 22hr, don't start scrubbing the floor at 21:45
That's rediculous behavior.
Or, if you want to lock the door at 22:00, lights out, everybody home.. Don't let me in at 21:30 and take an order for two pizza's that need 15 minutes to bake.
The food is the best.. The ambance is great.. The prices are spot on.. But you don't get it if you think only that makes you a good restaurant.

Vapiano is a nice Italian cafe in Vienna. There are multiple locations throughout Eastern Europe and the rest of the world. The food is quick and the portion sizes are pretty decent.
When you enter, you are given one card per person. You take your card and bring it to the different stations. There are different stations for pizza, pasta, and salads. At the station, you order your meal and then they charge what you ordered to your card. Then when you exit the restaurant you pay your balance on the card.
I am not a huge fan of this card system. It is such an easy way to rip off tourists. The location near the Opera House really ripped us off, we ordered three small salads and they charged us for three large salads. We didn't even realize until we got back to the hotel
I tried both the green salad and Caesar salad and they were both fresh and delicious. The pizzas are extremely thin crust and crispy. Yummmm
TIP: Make sure you clearly state what you are ordering and make sure that is exactly the charge they put on your card.
Overall, I really like this place. We visited several times when we were in Vienna. I highly recommend checking it out.

Vapiano is one of the best restaurants on the popular Mariahilferstraße. It is also the best for your money! They have a wide varitey of pastas, and the place is set up where you order straight from the chef as he makes your personal dish. You choose a pasta, a meat, and a sauce and other miscellaneous choices and he cooks it for you on the spot.
The pizza is also quite good and the salads are fresh, but i would definitely go with the pasta! They also put your order on a swipe card that you pay for as you leave. Very modern! It was busy everytime I went and seating can sometimes be a problem, but just share a table and you will be all good.
Review from Audrey H.
Yes, Vapiano is a chain of Italian restaurants, without table service.
But the food is really good, truly tastes like a real Italian restaurant and is cooked right in front of you according to YOUR preferences.
They have several counters, one for each Italian specialty: Pasta , Salad and Pizzas, and also have one spot for starters, desserts and drinks.
You get a card at the entrance that you charge at one of the counters (depending on what you are having). You make your choice among the appetizing dishes, can customise it (sauces, added ingredients (€) , herbs...), and then admire the chef cook it for you!
If you are having pizza, you get a bipper that you take with you at your table. A few minutes later it will bip and you can go back get your freshly baked pizza!
All in all, a quick and tasty meal for a reasonable price. As for the ambiance, I like the modern decoration and its high wood tables and seats.
So yes, Vapiano is a channel of Italian restaurants. Luckily for us: there are several of them in the City! :)
Review from Neelam P.
Delicious pesto pizza!! The location is convenient and it was quite crowded both times that I went. I thought the prices were reasonable given the fact that you're getting some delicious food. They also have a bunch of pasta options.

I love the Vapiano. I could eat there everyday. Here are some reasons why:
Location: It's set near Mariahilferstraße, the main shopping street in Vienna. You get there easily by U2 and several buses
Food: The have THE most delicious Italian food I've ever had. The Pizza is just perfect with delicious cheese. If you order salad, you'll get a huge bowl with everything you'll ever imagine to find in a salad
Prices: Quite expensive, but that's okay if you look at the food and the high quality ingredients inside
Decorated: There are some olive trees and tables around it. If you ever eat there you'll be in this "Viva Italia" mood.
All together I give it 4/5 stars, because it is modern, delicious, very clean, but they only have Self-Service
