The 400 cover restaurant spans two floors and boast a 100-year-old olive tree and fresh live herbs on the tables. It will offer Manchester’s diners a unique concept as the restaurant is self-service with guests enjoying face-to-face interactions with chefs as they cook their dish to order, just how they like it. Guests order and pay using a smart card system - one per customer - meaning everyone pays for what they order, avoiding the need for tricky bill splitting at the end of the meal.
PIZZA – It starts life as a humble ball. But as soon someone orders a pizza, it only takes seconds for a Vapianisti to transform the dough into a wonderfully thin base. These kitchen whizzes have been known to turn pizza-making into a show, spinning the pizza base through the air and leaving spectators looking on in awe. Will they drop it? Will it tear?Of course they won’t! Anyone twirling dough through the air at Vapiano knows exactly what they’re doing and is welcome to have a little fun now and again. There’s a good reason for all the dough throwing too – the pizza base becomes thinner and thinner. Vapianisti love to show off their party tricks and the guests love to marvel. Most pizza makers enjoy watching their wide-eyed guests, looking on nervously to see whether the dough will make it in one piece. The glint in their eye is proof of how much fun they’re having! And that’s not just the case for making the bases. Their Vapianisti are happy to create every pizza just the way our guests want it. Their motto: there’s no such thing as can’t! Want extra mozzarella? No problem. Fancy a vegan pizza? Coming right up. Or a carefully folded Calzone? Their pleasure.
