1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

The dominant flavour of the carbonara sauce I ordered was sweet, caramelised onions. But who puts onions in a carbonara sauce? By contrast, I had to be asked whether I wanted garlic and parmesan cheese (yes!). The lardons were bland: this is not authentic Italian cooking. And then having to stand and wait while the food was cooked and served,... More

Vapiano offer a unique dinning experience with a selection of pastas, salads and pizzas to choose from. This is a great place to have a quick bite to eat with the food being great and value for money. I would advise to not visit at lunch time as it is very busy

Normally reliable lunchtime pizza awful on a Saturday night visit. Half the toppings not included because they'd run out of them, and to call what we did have paltry would be generous - our pizzas were essentially flavoured garlic breads. When I complained to a very disinterested member of staff she said maybe the guys making the pizza were just... More

I've never been to a Vapiano's before - what a great concept. I had both a lunch and dinner here and was impressed. It's definitely not fast food as meals are cooked fresh right in front of you, but it's quicker than a restaurant. There's an assortment of Italian dishes, pizzas, and salads, and you can even get a glass... More

I was born and live in a country with one of largest italian population in the world. Even there, I was not able to find a restaurant like Vapiano. The pasta is al dente despite it is prepared so fast, the ingredients are fresh and savory.

Have visited this place over the last three years. Still impresses. Freshly made pasta cooked to your menu choice right in front of you in about 4-5 minutes. The same is said for the pizzas (about 10 mins) So fresh and at a reasonable price. Great, busy, atmosphere one that all can enjoy. Do get there early as it does... More

I love the concept, the card system is really easy to use and very clever. The food is cooked fresh in front of you and is absolutely delicious. As well as some of the best pasta I've ever had, the coffee I finished on was really good too. I'd have given 5 stars if only anyone here had cracked a... More

My work colleague that i lunch with asked if I'd like to go to Vapiano's as a pre-birthday gift as i had planned to be away on my actual Birthday. Fast, fresh service on arrival. The pizza I ordered was delicious as was the wine and cheesecake for dessert.

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
