This is a very busy pasta restaurant, everything is cooked in front of you to your specifications, absolutely delicious, they also give you bread which is so fresh and soft, but make sure you ask, it is free but they don't tell you

This made each dish taste so authentic. For such fresh and high quality food, Vapiano is also amazing value. The individual card option was also a good idea,making... More

Vapianos is such a cool concept ! There are different stations where you order different things , such as pizza , pasta, salad , and the bar. Everything is made to order right in front of you ! All of the doughs and pastas are made from scratch every morning. Very reasonable prices , nice atmosphere and delicious food!

It was a very good experience to see how your food is prepared, being able to customize your order if needed. not good for a date though, as you both end up queuing and running around to get your food ;)

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
