The pizza is good, much better than anywhere else in amsterdam! The atmosphere is not the best, it is a bit noisy, so it is not good for romantic dinners, but is great for groups and quick meals. you have to order your food at the counter and then pick it up yourself, which may be annoying for some but it is nice to see how they prepare you dish in front of you!!
The desserts are also good, but the tiramisù does not contain many many biscuits, so beware!

Upon entry you get given a card which is scanned when you order your meal and you then use to pay upon leaving. You then stand in a line to place your order, which can be quite long, your meal is then cooked in front of you and you then take it to your table. I had the mushroom risotto which tasted very good the restaurant environment feels very much like fast food but food was fresh and tasty. We arrived around 5:30 and were served quite quickly but upon leaving the lines were long and tables were scarce, good value if you are eating on a budget, ideal for students.

I am used to eating in the one in Den Haag - always good. This one in Amsterdam is poor. On a recent visit it took 40 minutes for them to serve 4 pasta dishes by which time pizzas ordered by others in our party were cold. They had no rice for risotto. Toilets messy and grubby. My complaint to the manager has had an acknowledgement (after a reminder and 10 days) but he has not answered my complaints in any way. I suspect the problem there is managerial!! I recommend you find somewhere else to eat.

I visited Vapiano last week with my colleagues. The restaurant looks very modern and stylish. It is located on the Oosterdokseiland with many new stores and hotels. For a group, it was hard to find an empty tabel. You can tell it is a popular restaurant. It looks like a cafetaria in a multinational. It has bars on the side where you can order your food: all different kind of pastas and pizza.
For me it never felt like an actual restaurant. It is obviously nicer than going to a Mc Donalds, but it is not that different. It's just a place where you can eat fast and for a good price and then you go.
I had a pizza tropical. The service was pretty fast. You get a beeper which will inform you when your pizza is ready. The pizza was big and thin and looked good. The taste was disappointing. I was really hoping for more flavor. I think if they use more tomato sauce or herbs on the pizza, that the flavor will improve.
The place is not for people who like a good conversation. It is too noisy and over crowded. It is not a restaurant I would visit again.

Great pasta. Incredible prices. Awesome atmosphere. This place is just perfect! Try the green tea with pear and the pesto.
