Chi va piano va sano e va lontano

Chi va piano va sano e va lontano.

In cities around the world, Vapiano is where people meet to share their love of life and spontaneous and genuine companionship.

Our Story


“Chi va piano, va sano e va lontano”: According to an Italian proverb, “If you have an easy-going and relaxed approach to life, you’ll live more healthily and longer”. And this is exactly the attitude which is lived every day in our Vapiano – by both our guests and our employees, the Vapianisti.  It has been this way since the 22nd of October, 2002, when the first Vapiano in Hamburg, Germany, opened its doors at the “Hohen Bleichen”. Today you can find Vapiano around the world on five continents. Today there are already more than 200 Vapiano restaurants in 33 countries on 5 continents, and many more international openings planned for the future

People who meet in our relaxed setting share one important quality: the love of enjoying life and sharing spontaneous and genuine companionship.

The long oak tables in the Vapianos are an open invitation to communication – with friends, family, or simply with other guests. Conversation comes easy in good company where all are talking, laughing, and of course, having a wonderful dining experience.

Pasta, pizzas, salads and antipasti are ordered directly from our chefs at individual stations in the middle of the Vapiano. The chefs prepare the dishes to order, right in front of you. You can have your meal made exactly as you like it. The herb garden and the fresh herbs on the tables are not just for decoration, but to offer the special taste that every dish deserves.

In most of our restaurants, you can watch as pasta and dolci are made fresh each day in the glassed-in manifattura. Our pizza dough, our sauces and dressings, and our pesto are all prepared in-house and guaranteed to be made of the finest ingredients. Every Vapiano around the world takes care of producing its own food.

Those who want to enjoy an after-dinner coffee or drink can move from the table to the bar or the comfortable lounge. Thanks to the smart-card payment system, you just pay for your consumption when you are ready to leave the restaurant.

Vapiano is the perfect setting for a quick lunch, an afternoon break, or a pleasant dinner with friends or family. Have you tried Vapiano yet?
