Culinary Vienna: Vapiano {Go-To Italian Cuisine}

EN: There's hardly any other restaurant, where I end up as often as at Vapiano! Especially great for spontaneous lunch meet ups or during shopping breaks, the Italian 'fast food' place produces high quality pasta, pizza, salads, risotti, desserts and seasonal specials for very reasonable prices. The atmosphere is pretty low-key and relaxed, the food is great, but the one contra point to me is self-service. I do get that this is an important part of the concept and don't mind it a bit when being there with a very small group of people. It is quite impossible though, to enjoy your food date as a group of four or more, because having to queue up in different lines (whether you want to have pasta, pizza etc.) and being handed your meals at different times, makes a relaxed outing almost impossible. Especially during the most frequented times at noon and in the evening, one always eats alone while waiting for the others. Apart from that, Vapiano definitely is my go-to choice for spontaneous food cravings! My all-time favourites on the menu are bruschetta, the big bowl of mixed salads, salmon Carbonara (best pasta!) and pretty much all kinds of pizza. The desserts are delicious as well, plus they have homemade iced teas. The pizza you see pictured here was a vegan version for my gf, by the way. There are several Vapianos all over town, generally located next to tube stations and shopping streets. For detailed information, check out their homepage.


GER: Vapiano ist seit Langem eines meiner Lieblingsrestaurants in Wien, welches ich auch bereits in anderen Städten besuchte. Als Restaurantkette weiß man eben immer, was man bekommt, und das ist in diesem Fall besonders lecker! Die selbst gemachte Pasta (besonders á la Lachs Carbonara!!) ist großartig, die verschiedenen Pizzavariationen - auch jene, mit ungewöhnlicheren Belägen, wie etwa Bergkäse und Feigen - gelingen immer und der große gemischte Salat mit Grana zählt sowieso zu meinen Favourites. Desserts und eigens kreierte Eistees schmecken köstlich und die Lage in Einkaufsstraßen und an U-Bahn Stationen lädt besonders zu spontanen Food Dates ein! Allerdings sollte man sich für Verabredungen mit größeren Gruppen lieber ein Lokal ohne Selbstbedienung aussuchen, da man sonst kaum dazu kommt, sich entspannt unterhalten und gemeinsam essen zu können. Besonders zu den stark frequentierten Zeiten ist davon abzuraten! Ansonsten kann ich Euch nur empfehlen, Vapiano zu testen, falls das Lokal nicht ohnehin schon zu Euren Favoriten gehört. Mehr Information gibt's hier.

Love, Julie.
