It is a really hyped place in Mannheim . The food is ok. I think the pizzas could be better, definitely the more plain the better. Pasta is definitely enjoyable. The problem with this restaurant is you always have to wait a long time until you can get your order. Since it is self-service, you are mostly waiting in a... More

It's like a high-end cafeteria--you take your tray and get food from various stands around the place--really appetizing pizza and pasta and other things, great tea, coffee and other drinks, and very pleasant decor. Prices are good too, and you don't have to deal with wait staff because there aren't any! Hence, no waiting either.

A unique concept for an Italian restaurant matching somehow a "fast-food" type of restaurant. Good food, very nice design and good bar. The staff is kind and speaking sufficient English. Pricing is reasonable. Located nearby to one of the city's main attractions: the Fountain Square. Visit recommended.

Vapiano is Amazing! You get to choose your pasta noodles and ingredients and they make it right in front of you! I would describe it as the Chipotle of Pasta. I chose the Bolognese and it tasted homemade and even better than my prized Spaghetti Bolognese (popular with my family and friends). The Bruschetta is also very tasty and exquisite,... More

Vapiano features fresh pasta and pizza at reasonable prices in the heart of downtown Mannheim. Seating is a bit of a premium but the food is worth the visit.

Nice simple fresh food. I like the concept. You select what you want and it is prepared infront of you. Will check it out the next time I am in town.

We met a big group of friends to celebrate my husband birthday and bought several pro-secco. The wine was very good and so the service.

For 2 times, bad mood cookers made the wrong pasta and when kindly asked to make the correct one he/she was very aggressive. But this last time was the worst ever. The cooker throwed the food in the trash, trowed the fridge down and started making a new one, but incredibly rude and stupid, throwing ingredients into the fridge.. garlic... More

A great restaurant chain with good, high standards. Great atmosphere and service is friendly. Love the fresh pizzas. Best to avoid the busiest times in the evenings as it can get so packed. Best after 9pm when not so busy.
