Oh Vapiano!

Dio mio! International Italian chain Vapiano opened up their doors to the Canberra food scene last week and if their opening night was any indication - they are coming in red hot!

Starting off with a red carpet walkway, the atmosphere was buzzing, the restaurant being full to the brim, as Canberra’s VIP guests enjoyed a night to remember. Vapiano is a modern cashless restaurant which also provides takeaway and home delivery. Inside, it is very spacious with large, smooth oak tables; pot plants, beige interior and floor to ceiling windows. This is reflective of the relaxed Mediterranean dining experience that they wished to create. 

They offer a range of authentic hand crafted pizzas, pastas and salads coupled with an impressive bar list, including craft beers, wines and cocktails. On the menu for the night was an: antipasto board, garlic pizza, ham pizza, bacon carbonara and bolognese pasta. My favourite was the carbonara, it was so tasty and creamy. For dessert: strawberry panna cotta and Nutella cheesecake. I’m a chocoholic so my heart will always choose Nutella but the panna cotta gave a light freshness to my palette.

All guests were served in tasting quantities however they were all deceivingly filling so it will be interesting to see the dishes in all their glory. The table service was impeccable, with all of the kitchen and floor staff attentive and friendly.

Vapiano stole a pizza my heart!

Location: Bunda Street outside Canberra Centre'sMonaro Mall beauty precinct.
