The piazza (Calzone) we tried was average but the Risotto (Gamberi) was awesome. Tim tam cheesecake was very gd as well. Gd ambience right across the beach (tho not much of sea view). Reasonably priced.

Worst food with full of salt. Staff was very rude. You have to eat on uncleared plates and cutlery. Manager was called and showed the uncleared plates however answer from him was " this is what I have if you want you can wash your plates" . All I can say hopeless, unprofessional. Please don't go there and waste your... More

This was a really a small disaster! We love italian food and we have seen other Vapiano restaurants in Europe - but did not know that this was a really "mock" to the italian kitchen. The people who served us and made the food was smiling and did a friendly try to give us the best experience - but the... More

We love Vapianos Salami pizza at Surfers Paradise, thin & crisp, good size... We often go on weekdays for $10 deals!

The entrance is upstairs, so you don't realize until you're closer how big the queue is. I definitely recommend making a booking as the wait for all 6 of us was quite long. Once we got in, everything was worth the wait. Delicious food, friendly service. The location is very handy, nice view. Well worth returning!

A big THANK YOU. Vapo's Surfer's is just awesome. Set on the second level , so you can sit out on the deck (or Inside) and watch Cavill Mall people go by. The staff are great, friendly and know their stuff. I really enjoy coming here. I've been to the Melbourne and Mt Gravatt stores , but surfers just leaves... More

Loved my lasagne and my husband loved the pizza. Simple and authentic italian made fresh everytime. I love the idea of fresh basil plant on each table. We're a sucker for basil and the unli basil on offer is such a delight.

This is a great restaurant. What a great idea to watch your chef make your meal as you watch and wait. On holiday with family from New Zealand and came across this restaurant by accident. We had no idea before going in...You basically get given a couple of cards which you use to order food and drinks...You can order a... More

First time eating here, and it was a busy night. We thought the idea was good but not the wait. My partner ordered pizza, and was quick to get back to the table. I waited in a que for about 25-30 minutes for my risotto. Although I enjoyed the personlised cooking risotto experience, I was left wondering whether my partner... More
