A bit of a new concept, you get a swipe card which all your food will be loaded onto, its all self service. They have different areas for pasta, pizza and drinks. The girls behind the bar were very rude and didn't really want to serve us but everyone else was very nice. The chefs made the food from scratch... More

Vapianos is a good place for a family. The food there is nice and great quality. The layout is very interesting as you actually watch the chefs cook your food. Although, the music is rather loud and there are lots of children screaming. But, the staff are nice and talk to you while your food is being cooked. Vapianos is... More

The concept and food comes together at Vapiano. There is something for all and the food is fresh and tasty. You might have to wait a bit of they are busy but it's all made right in front of you and the prices are reasonable. Good option for all.

I'm cautious about reviewing surfers paradise restaurants due to the generic get the tourist in , give him an average experience and know you will never see them again NOT THIS PLACE!! Excellent setting (even outdoors in the rain), fantastic staff (young energetic and helpful) and most of all A fresh Italian food feast cooked... More

I went to Vapianos last week, it was again a really good experience. Food was excellent prepared by the lovely Carla. I watched how she made the Bolognese sauce from scratch and everything else I ordered too was totally fresh. Unfortunately I was travelling by myself and my 2 kids so I had to leave them by themselves whilst I... More

Have been to the Melbourne version a few times so was really excited to see there was one here. The food is delicious. A1!!! The bread and dip was just divine and my ravioli was tender and tasty. And love the gummy bears at the front. Such a nice touch.

My partner and I had been to the Melbourne Vapiano, and now have tried the Gold Coast one. They were both so delicious! We both have family members who cook authentic Italian food, and this is PROPER Italian food! Service is fast, good variety of pizzas and pastas and desserts. Love this place, highly recommend!!
