Food was fresh and delicious, and price was very reasonable. There is no waiter service, you just stand in line and place your order, mainly for pasta dishes, and they make it right in front of you! You also are given the option of customizing...More

I had never been to Vapiano before, so had to be told how this place works. It is basically college dormitory food in a bad college dormitory setting. The noise level was ear-splitting: it was so loud, from the sound system, and the way the...More

Loved our ‘self-serve’ meals. Restaurant was a bit cold (then again, it’s freezing temperatures outside). Not enough bathrooms and the wine I selected was not available. Overall, I would recommend if simply for the perfectly cooked pasta!

Tasty pasta, interesting concept, part of a chain of European restaurants (we visited locations in Berlin, Vienna, Warsaw and Budapest). You can choose on line your pasta and sauce, included whole wheat pasta. Nice young environment, close to New York University and Union Square.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
