I'm living in London for over a year, and they do my favourite pasta. It's very very cheap, with no service charge, the quality is absolutely great. There could be a long queue, but it's always quick. The place is tidy and clean. Go there for a mid week dinner , or Saturday afternoon.

This place is great because it's fast food that isn't junk. Going in a group is good too, because everyone pays for exactly what they eat and there's different prices lists so you can go here even if you're on a budget! Downside is that it's packed most of the time so sometimes tricky to find a place to sit. I wouldn't say the Pizza or the Pasta is superb but it's not bad, especially for the price.


Cannot understand Time Out's rating here. It's a chain restaurant but an excellent one. Had the Scampi pasta dish (essentially a marinara) and thought it was absolutely outstanding with loads of flavour. A friend had similar but with spinach in a cream sauce. Have visited a huge amount of Italian places around the area and very few match for taste, range and price. Every dish that people passed with looked fantastic. It's noisy, cheap-ish fast food but fresh, very well cooked and authentic. Why two stars?


Tried Vapiano for 1st time a week last week. Had an amazing feta cheese and sundried tomato pasta dish, cooked quickly and ate upstairs under skylights. Had business meeting and colleague also ate - perfect meal, great price (just under £18 for two) and couldn't ask for more in terms of deliious fast food that's not 'junk' when time is pressing. I'll be back again, this time with my family.


Canteen-style gourmet dining with a lively atmosphere and fantastic pizza. Definitely try it out if you're looking for somewhere new and interesting!
