About us

At VAPIANO our guests share the same interest for freshly homemade mediterrean food, nice conversations and spontaneous, informal meetings. In our pasta manifattura our pasta and dolci are daily prepared on site - all guaranteed to be made from the best, freshest ingredients.

Relaxation and serenity are the virtues of VAPIANO, which are also practiced by our guests and employees, the Vapianisti. And this since October 22nd, 2002 when the first Vapiano in Hamburg, Germany, was opened in the "Hohe Bleichen".

After only two years, the founders decided to take VAPIANO out into the world as a franchise concept. To date, over 182 VAPIANO have been opened in 28 countries on five continents.

True to the italian motto: "Chi va piano, va sano e va lontano" - "Anyone who approaches everything in life in a relaxed manner, lives healthier and longer".
