LONDON – I received a £5 voucher from Vapiano in the mail this week and decided to cash it in.
Each time I go to Vapiano (three times and counting) the place is busy! A good sign no doubt. This is an inexpensive restaurant where you can eat a pizza (starting at £6.75) or pasta (starting at £6.75) and get a drink in Central London for under £10 and still feel like you went to a pretty decent restaurant for a nice meal out.
The restaurant runs on a different concept to most. When you arrive, each person gets a card that is swiped each time you order something from the counter. Only on your exit do you pay. It makes it nice for large groups where everyone wants to settle the bill separately. The downside is that since you order your food at the counter, you have to stand around and wait for it and you and your friends won’t necessarily start eating at the same time. Apart from that, it’s a decent meal out and I’d definitely recommend the Toscana pizza.
Bottom line: Nice Italian food at a decent price.
