Time Out says
In this Italian restaurant you'll find the design, decor, music and lighting come together to create an inspiring ambience for diners. Vapiano is a chain of Italian eateries with locations around the world. Two of them are in Barcelona – in addition to this one in Gran Via, you'll find another in the Diagonal Mar shopping centre.
At Vapiano, talented chefs prepare your favourite dishes at individual stations before your eyes; one of the many values that mark Vapiano is transparency. You can choose between a full menu that features the most typical Italian dishes and personalise them with your own preferences. And the aromatic garden and fresh herbs in the middle of the tables aren't just for decoration, but they offer that special flavour that every dish deserves.
At this international chain, the tables play a fundamental role: they're big, made of oak and invite communication between friends and family. It's definitely a place where you can enjoy excellent food in a relaxed, family atmosphere. As the proverb that gives the restaurant its name goes, 'Chi va piano, va sano e va lontano', which more or less means 'Slow and steady wins the race', and which Vapiano likes to translate as, 'If you have an easy-going and relaxed approach to life, you’ll live more healthily and longer'.
