“Interesting”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

It was a random restaurant when we first tried it, but have visited it several times later.
It´s a bit unique compared to the others in the Aker Brygge-area. Huge place, you don´t feel like you are sitting very close to people around you, you cane stand and watch your food getting ready, special orders are not a problem here.
Overall must try it once.

“Nice place to meet friends for pasta and pizza”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Nice ambiance and view.

Pasta was excellent and portion was big. However because everyone lines up for the chef to whip up your order right in front of you, it can be quite a wait. I rather they use the remote notification device shaped like a UFO to inform us when it's done so we don't have to stand and wait for the pasta. Pizza was good, and there are fresh herbs on the table which you can add to your dishes, now that's cool. Went with a friend and my family and it was children friendly.

There's nothing much to say about the service since it feels more like a hybrid buffet/ self service concept here. Again I would come again for the food and atmosphere.

“Love Vapiano's, in Riga, Tallinn and now Oslo!”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

This is my third Vapiano to try in as many countries. I love this place! Walk in, receive a card per person to tally your order as you go. Walk to the counter to order a pizza, step down a few paces to choose a pasta, then down a little further for a salad. All made right in front of you as you order!! Hand the card to the chef or flash it in front of the digital reader and it will record your purchase, then when you leave you hand in your cards to be tallied and pay. Fun!

The food is delicious, never had anything that wasn't good. This time it was a vegetarian pizza and Caesar salad. Pasta is always good too. Portions are ample, usually can take home extra. Atmosphere is great as well. High bar stools or tables, always busy but efficient.

“Tasty italian quisine made in front of you”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I visited Vapiano in Germany, Berlin about year ago. I am pleased that this restaurant is in Oslo. It is great that you can see how your meal is made. I am regular guest in Vapiano and strongly recommend :)
